Do You Need Microblading or Microshading or Both?

The world is just getting the hang of mirocblading. If you haven’t already had it done, chances are you know someone who has. Just as we are becoming accustomed to the newness of microblading, a new treatment is making waves: microshading. 


According to New Beauty, it’s geared toward those with oily or sensitive skin or brows that are already full and just need a bit of shaping. It’s called “shading” rather than “blading” because the process is more so like creating a shadow or gradient appearance with  micro-dots of pigment instead of fine hair like lines you would get with microblading—almost like you used a touch of brow powder (the look has also been referred to as ‘powder brows”. But don’t worry. The color softly fades into a powdery natural looking brow. 


Microblading is a fantastic solution for realistic brows, however adding on microshading creates the depth that is not as easily achieved with microblading alone. 


Most of our client’s at Vanity Image Studio opt for a combination of both microblading and microshading. This is Crystal’s (Master Brow Artist ) signature style of brow enhancement. This is her favorite because it looks amazing on everyone. It is safe and effective for those who have super sensitive or oily skin and helps those who have large gaps or no brow hair. It can also be especially helpful when clients  have a large bulb of hair at the front of the brow and very little or no hair anywhere else. 


This new technique helps blend the strokes and create the illusion of a 3 dimensional brow. Vanity offer both Microblading, Microshading and Signature Brows. Microshading generally lasts longer than microblading even when done as a combination brow. 


If you want to find out for sure which procedure will be best for you, schedule a consultation online and arrange for an in person or on the phone meeting to discuss your brows.
