  • What is microblading
    Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. Microblading typically lasts 1-4 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine. The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles and each 'hair' is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.
  • What is micro shading?
    Also known as ombre powder brow using a digital machine to insert tiny dots of pigment into the skin. It creates a more shaded effect, rather than the crisp hair strokes that are often associated with microblading. The result is a more defined, fuller brow, similar to the look you can achieve using cosmetic eyebrow powders or pencils.
