Filling eyebrows on a daily basis can be both costly and tiresome. You have to deal with the cost of buying eye pencils, gels and other tools to have them look good and perfectly aligned. This takes a lot of time, which is a major inconvenience whenever you have to attend to important things. While the other solution might be tattooing your eyebrows, this is a permanent method that might not give you so many styling options in the future.
If you are torn between daily eyebrow styling and permanently tattooing them, microblading and Ombre eyebrows are your perfect solutions.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent method of brow tattooing done manually by hand. This technique gives you fine and natural-looking hair strokes that will last between 12 to 18 months. The process is done using a special hand-held tool that has a unique blade to insert dye into the skin’s second dermal layer. What you get is perfectly shaped, full and symmetrical brows that highlight your eyes.
Unlike the normal tattooing, microblading is a less painful treatment that leaves you with options when you want to change your eyebrows after some time. A numbing cream can be used before treatment to ensure a painless process.
Microblading uses a type of pigment that is not deeply ingrained in the skin like the one used in tattooing. Your body metabolizes the microblading pigment with time until it completely fades away. The dye particles applied during the process are also less concentrated, which creates a softer and more realistic appearance.
What are the main differences between microblading and eyebrow tattoos?
• Microblading is semi-permanent while eyebrow tattoos are permanent.
• Microblading lasts between one to two years, which gives you the opportunity to change your look after some time.
• Microblading eyebrows are hand-drawn unlike tattoos that are done using a machine. This means less impact on the skin and you will not experience any form of bleeding.
• Blacks don’t turn to blue or brown when you do microblading. The kind of ink used in microblading ensures that the colour remains true to its original hue even if it fades with time.
Ombre Brow are also called Ombre Powder Eyebrows. This is a semi-permanent method of shaping eyebrows, filling in areas that have less hair and creating a gradient effect. The difference between ombre and microblading is that the ombre technique involves using a specialized machine to form pixelated dots that look like a powder-like, shaded brow. The brows appear light at the front edges then transition to a darker shade at the end. This is a new technique that is offering the same eyebrow solutions as microblading.
Ombre lashes can last between two to three years. The technique makes your brows appear bolder, darker at the arch, more natural, and adds depth to wimpy-looking brows. With this solution, you won’t need to lean to the mirror everyday trying to fill in your eyebrows using eyeliner pencils. The biggest advantage of ombre over microblading is that it is more ideal for sensitive or oily skin. Ombre is also recommended for all types of skin colours. Clients can choose how light or dark they want their brows depending on their skin type.
Your brows will take 7 to 14 days to heal, which means you have to follow the instructions given by your technician. The most basic care is to ensure your brows don’t come into contact with water during the first 7 days. This means you have to be careful when showering or washing your face. Also, avoid intense exercise that will make you too sweaty, spending too much time in the sun or applying makeup. Your technician will advise you on the right ointment to apply during the healing period.
What’s the main difference between Microblading and Ombre?
The two eyebrow techniques are more or less the same in terms of the solutions they offer. However, the main difference is in the way the pigment is added to the skin. In simpler terms, microblading involves creating short hair-like stokes while ombre involves creating a series of numerous fine dots that vary in the level of concentration to provide a powdered brow look. If you have an oily skin, ombre would be the better option to ensure your brows don’t appear blurry.
Although it is possible to combine the two techniques, it’s important to seek advice from your technician.
Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Microblading and Ombre Eyebrows?
Microblading and Ombre are ideal for any skin colour because they blend with natural brows. They are both great solutions for people who have lost their brows to alopecia, burns or any other health condition.
If you are not the person to spend too much time on the mirror styling your eyebrows, this is the way to go. You don’t have to style the brows every morning because they last for more than one year.
The two techniques are ideal for people with light, sparse eyebrows, or anyone who wants more defined and fuller brows.
What to Consider Before Going for Microblading or Ombre Eyebrows?
Whenever you want to consider a permanent or semi-permanent beauty solution, it’s always advisable to go for the most experience and talented technician. Considering this is something you will have for a year plus, you don’t want to have a messy look throughout this period.
Luxe Lashes by Angel is offering one of the best Brow Microblading and Ombre Brow solutions to our clients.
We advise the following categories of people to avoid microblading and ombre for their own safety:
- Breastfeeding or pregnant women
- People who are diabetic, epileptic, have a history of keloid scarring or any viral infectious disease
- People with major heart problems, seborrheic dermatitis, skin irritations near eyebrows
- People who have had eyebrow tattoo in the past or used Accutane in less than a year ago
- People who have had a brow tint, brow wax or Botox less than 2 weeks ago
- If your skin is too sensitive or bleeds easily
- If you are on blood thinning medication
Lip Tattooing is a form of semi-permanent lipstick that has become a popular trend among celebrities and the beauty industry at large.
This is a non-invasive tattooing technique that tints your lips by using a type of cosmetic tattoo gun and water-based inks. This procedure has certain similarities to lip fillers because it also makes the lips look fuller and more defined with enhanced pigment.
The good thing about this tattooing technique is that your lips still feel natural and don’t change in shape. The procedure enhances lip symmetry, covers uneven pigmentation and scars, and leaves them looking fuller with elaborate colour. What you get is soft and perfectly shaded lips.
Semi-permanent lip tattooing or blushing can last between two to three years. The colour lightens and fades over time. This means you can either opt to go for a second procedure or go back to your normal look depending on your experience. Most tattoo technicians recommend having a yearly refresh session to maintain the desired shade.
Just like any other tattooing procedure, you might feel some pain, but technicians will most likely use a topical numbing cream to reduce the pain. The healing process normally takes four weeks. You might experience some scabbing during the first week after the procedure, but this is normal and should not worry you.
Most people struggle achieving the perfect eyeliners. Applying makeup on eyeliners is a time-consuming and delicate procedure that requires precision. Eyeliner tattooing is a trending solution that will give you long-term results to save you the trouble of applying makeup on a daily.
Eyeliner tattoo, also known as permanent eyeliner, offers natural-looking results for long. The procedure involves placing pigment along the lash line using permanent ink. There are different types of eyeliner tattoos ranging from thin to thicker natural lines.
The first step during eyeliner tattooing involves coming up with a series of designs for the client to choose. With the help of the eyeliner technician, clients are able to choose the design that most suits their look. The most advisable thing is to begin with a less-permanent lash line enhancement before moving to a permanent style.
One of the major benefits of eyeliner tattoos is that you do not need to wear eyeliners anymore. The procedure enhances your eye shape and you can stay between two to five years before requiring a touch-up. It’s also a great solution for clients with sparse lashes or anyone suffering from hair loss due to alopecia or other conditions.
It’s imperative to note that colour retention varies according to your skin type, age and body chemistry.
Brow Lamination got its origin from Russia and is now popular worldwide. This procedure creates slicked-up brows with an elaborate shine to give your brows a unique look. It helps to smooth out thinning or unruly brow hair while also providing a vertical lift to the hair. If you have a problem with gaps within your brows, overplucking, unruliness or thinning, this is the right solution for you.
The process involves lifting and straightening the hairs using a special chemical solution that enhances flexibility. You hair becomes flexible in a way that it can be moved to the desired shape, hence covering any visible gaps. Once your natural brows are straightened, a solution is applied to keep them straight and give it the desired tint. The end result is fuller brows that retain their shape when brushed. The results last for about six weeks before requiring a touch-up.
The biggest advantage over other semi-permanent makeup procedures is that brow lamination does not involve any tattooing. This translates to a painless experience that does not require too much aftercare procedures. It’s also more affordable compared to other brow solutions.
You are required to keep your eyebrows dry during the first 24 hours after the procedure.
Henna Brow, Wax and Tint
Henna Brows are a special kind of brow tinting that gives the hair a certain stain that lasts up to six weeks. The tint on the skin lasts between 2 to 10 days. This is a great solution for anyone looking to fill and shape their brows before opting for a more permanent styling method.
Although henna has for long been used in makeup, body art and hair styling, the recent past has seen it become a reliable solution for eyebrows. Henna brows are not only red in colour; they come in different shades depending on the preference of the client.
The process of applying henna involves removing any oils from the skin, measuring and shaping the brows. A white paste is then applied around your eyebrows to create a barrier. The henna is carefully pushed onto the skin; this plays an important role in achieving sharp and perfectly defined lines. The solution is wiped after 10 to 20 minutes once it completes developing. The eyebrows are then waxed, tweezed or threaded to create a high definition effect.
Eyebrow tinting simply means adding a semi-permanent dye to give your brows a more defined look and shape. The technician manipulates the brow area by using a dye to darken the fine hairs surrounding the brows. This procedure works for almost all skin tones, skin types and hair colours.
Eyebrow waxing on the hand involves applying warm wax on unwanted brow hairs. The wax is usually applied in the direction of hair growth and left to dry for a few seconds. A small paper strip is then placed on the wax and then quickly removed to pull the unwanted hairs.
