Ombré Powder Brows

If you’re looking for a fresh new look for your eyebrows, Social Brows & Lashes in downtown Kamloops, BC, provides services for ombre powder brows. This less invasive version of microblading gives you semi-permanent eyebrows that are less painful, last longer and are suitable for all skin types.

Also known as powder brows and shaded brows, this process is done by using a smaller machine or a hand tool similar to the way traditional tattoos are done. Thousands of tiny dots of pigment are inserted into the skin, leading to the desired end result of a soft shaded pencil look for your eyebrows that is both waterproof and smudge-proof.

While both options are a form of cosmetic tattooing, skin type and the desired look achieved are integral in the decision making for your eyebrows.

The technique behind microblading is done using a super fine blade made up of tiny needles to deposit pigment into the skin, creating hair strokes that look real. Typically, this lasts anywhere between one and two years. Annual touchups are always recommended.

The process behind ombre powder brows, on the other hand, is less painful and results in less bleeding due to the airbrushed-like technique. How long it lasts depends on lifestyle and skin type, but can be anywhere between two-to-three years.

Although ombre powder brows are suitable for most skin types, microblading is not suitable for clients with oily or sensitive skin. The latter requires more touch ups, which can result in more trauma caused to the skin.
