What is shading?

Shading, also known as “Ombre Powder” or the “Shadow Effect”, is a semi-permanent solution to your ideal eyebrows. This technique is used to achieve an evidently more realistic and fuller eyebrow look that you desire without having to draw them on with makeup. This method uses repetitive dots of pigment to create and improve a more natural shape of the eyebrows.

How is it done?

The procedure is done in two sessions. The first session is where the client chooses the color preference for their eyebrow 22102 as well as any adjustments on the eyebrow shape and thickness. Then the technician would map the eyebrows and use a manual tool that administers minuscule dots in a gradient pattern creating a semi-permanent powered effect to the client’s preference. The second session takes place four weeks after the first session and this is when the touch-ups are made to see if the brows need any adjustment and if the color is even as it is healing from the first session. During the procedure, a shading eyebrows hand tool or machine is used to create a powder look that can be similar to airbrushing or spraying. The makeup technician will use the chosen pigments and shade from dark to light. To create depth in the eyebrows, the technician will dust the pigment concentrating from the tail with a darker shade and slowly transition to a lighter shade as it moves to the front of the eyebrows. By making the top outer rim of the eyebrows lighter and smoother, this also defines the bottom arch as well. The results of the soft translucent powder under the brow hair create the effect of a fuller brow. Once shading is complete, the color of the eyebrows will seem a lot darker but will fade to the chosen color pigment after the healing process of one to two weeks. When the scabs are finally healed, the pigmented eyebrows are ready for the necessary touch-up. With a quick healing process, the results will show a beautiful pair of soft powdered eyebrows.

● Is there any chance I can get an infection?
