During the microblading process, I apply hand-drawn hair strokes meticulously into the epidermal layer of the skin using a hand tool and pigment. For microblading, I dip the hand tool into pigment and then delicately apply it to the skin as individual hair strokes. Microblading mimics realistic hair-like strokes, which are designed to flow like a natural eyebrow. The microblading look works great for clients who want to fill in gaps in the brow line or create brows where hair has been lost. I often recommend microblading for fair-skinned, fair-haired clients hoping to achieve a natural look.
For clients with oily skin, microblading strokes may fade faster, need more touchups or expand a little. If you have oily skin, we recommend powdered brows or a combination brow.
Powdered brows can be done with a machine or hand tool in order to create an ombre look instead of individual hair strokes. I recommend powdered brows for individuals with oily skin, mature skin, and for those wanting a soft makeup look. The soft makeup look means that the tails of the brows are darker and fade to a lighter at the start of the brows, giving them a subtle look. The ideal candidates for powdered brows are those who have hair, but fill in with makeup. If you have thinner brows, we can add in hair strokes after for additional texture. Powdered brows traditionally last for 2-4 years while microblading usually lasts 2-3 years
