Cosmetic tattooing is back and better than ever! Unlike the old school permanent makeup of the ’80s and ’90s, the latest trends are not as harsh and obvious-looking. This is thanks to micro sized needles and natural color based inks that don’t fade into funky colors. You’ve probably already heard of microblading, but what about those other brow options? How do you know which one is right for you?
All permanent brow techniques are designed to make it easier for you to get ready in the morning. You won’t have to “guess” where to draw your brows or have to worry about your makeup melting off or someone seeing you without your brows on. But all brow are not created equal. You should choose one based on your skin type and preferences. Read on to find out more about the pros and cons of each service.
Pros: Makes brows look thicker, fuller, darker, and more defined. This option if you want your brows to look natural when you don’t have makeup on but they’re easy to fill in if you want a more made up look. It only lasts up to 2 years, so you don’t have to worry about being stuck with the same brow shape for the rest of your life. Fades without turning blue, red, green, or purple.
Cons: This will fade fast on oilier skin types
Pigment is inserted into the skin with a needle on an electrical machine (NOT a tattoo gun) and the brows are filled in with color, similar to the look of filling in your brows with brow powder
Pros: Ideal for those with very oily skin and those who like a more made up look and don’t want to have to fill in their brows at all.
Cons: Your brows will look “made up” even when you’re not wearing makeup. Since the color is uniform throughout the brow, it can look more “flat” and less natural than the other options. Doing the POWDER OMBRE (a combination of hairstrokes and powder brows will help it look more natural).
POWDER OMBRE BROWS
This is a trendy look, made popular by makeup artists on Instagram, where the brow is powder filled then nano hair strokes are added on top for the most naturally thick option availbale. A combination of hairstrokes and powder brows.
Pros: Ideal for those who like a more made-up brow look or those who have a good amount of hair on the inner corners but missing the tail end of their natural brows. The microblading in the front just makes the brows look more natural.
Cons: Can be more expensive since it’s a two-in-one procedure.
Looks similar to microblading but done with a fine needle on the electrical machine. Meaning these will not fade in 2 years. They should last 5-8 years.
Pros: Like microblading, the hairstrokes make this a more natural-looking option. It will last longer on oilier skin than microblading.
Cons: Can take a bit longer as the needle is the smallest used for any technique thus taking longer for the artist to create your full desired affect.
