Eyebrows play a vast role in our beauty world today, with many different techniques of treating and styling them. In this article, we will go over some of the hottest semi-permanent eyebrow treatments that are trending in 2022.
Ombre Powder Brows
Powder brows create full, fluffy eyebrows in a bespoke arch shape that best suit facial features and brings out your natural beauty. This version is similar to the original powder brows, though the artist follows a particular saturation pattern. The ombre effect results in a three-dimensional look, which means the inner and outer parts of the brow get lighter and gradually darker towards the tail, respectively.
This is an excellent option for people with oily skin since it delivers satisfactory, long-lasting results on people with such skin compared to any other procedure.
Microblading eyebrows is a semi-permanent makeup technique similar to eyebrow tattooing, yet far more modernized. It is the most prominent beauty mania bound to stick around for an extended time, bestowing you with the perfect arches and bespoke, thick, defined, yet perfectly natural-looking eyebrows.
During this procedure, the practitioner manually uses a microblading tool to create thin incisions in your skin to deposit organic colored pigments, hence mimicking your natural brow hairs. 3D microblading is another term used for microblading because it gives very realistic and virtually unidentifiable results. The estimated longevity is 12-18 months, after which the brows mostly fade as the body breaks down the pigments calling for replenishment.
This procedure is an excellent option for people with dry skin because their brows last longer, unlike people with oily skin who might need frequent touch-ups if they want to prolong the duration of their micro-bladed eyebrows.
Eyebrows Micro-pigmentation and Shadow
Micro-pigmentation and Shadow is a cosmetic eyebrow procedure that adds delicate and tiny dots that mimic hair follicles. The results appear like hair strokes to look natural, giving volume and definition to eyebrows. It uses a semi-permanent makeup machine created for scalp artistry to implement SPMU pigments into the surface layer of the skin resulting in hair strokes that are indistinguishable from the natural hairs. The results stay visible for 1.5 to 2.5 years.
This technique recreates brow arches from scratch for clients who have thinner hair or do not have any hair due to certain conditions. Skin type doesn't matter for this treatment, but understand that pigments tend to fade faster from oily skin.
Blade and Shade
Blade and shade is a blend of eyebrows microblading and ombre powder brows.
Incorporating shading to the middle and inner parts of the micro-bladed brows is the technique for those preferring bolder brows and having dark coarse hair in the brow area.
Microblading Bold Brows
Microblading bold brows, also called micro feathering, involves drawing tiny scratches on the skin that imitate brow hairs using a fragile, hand-held blade. The artist fills the incisions with semi-permanent pigments that look indistinguishable from actual inches once healed. Feathered eyebrows complement the natural brow arches by generating extra hair-like skin strokes. It is a long-lasting custom of filling in your brows to cover up bare patches, enhance volume, and improve the shape of the arch.
Eyebrow feathering is the best option for clients with dry to standard typical skin types who already have relatively thick brows but want them fluffy and enhanced. Its results give the illusion of a natural volume lasting up to 18 months.
