I love the look of micro shading, also called powder shading or sometimes ombre 3D. It gives a more natural look.
What is Microshading or Powder Brows?
July 23, 2019, Michael Svendsen / Chronic Ink
Permanent makeup procedures are growing around the country. Many tattoo shops offer these services alongside their more traditional offerings, as they use similar types of pigments and inks that are found in your everyday tattoo design. Because of this, microshading tends to look very real, more so than any other type of makeup or procedure, as it more effectively replicates hair texture on the surface of the skin.
These services can also be used in other areas of the body for people with skin disorders, but many people are going to be familiar with eyebrow microblading and microshading process, as both have become semi-permanent ways to treat the eyebrow area. Cosmetic tattooing has become the go-to for those who want the best look and value for the money. There are many tattoo parlors who are hiring individuals who only have experience in the tattoo industry through doing these cosmetic makeup procedures. This means you can find someone almost anywhere if you ask, and allows you to “shop around” for a person who you are comfortable with and has the experience you need to get the job done right...

Check out this article on the advancement of Permanent Cosmetics. Although we offer microblading as one of our services, I much prefer creating hair strokes using a tattoo machine. I feel the shading effect gives a more natural look and honestly does not hurt as much as microblading.
Permanent Makeup Is Back — And It Looks Nothing Like It Did 20 Years Ago
Apr 10, 2018, Olivia Muenter / Bustle
When I told my parents last year that I was getting my eyebrows microbladed, they barely reacted. "OK, what's that?" they asked.
"It's basically tattooing tiny lines on my face that look like a perfectly sculpted eyebrow," I answered.
And then they started to panic a bit. For my parents, and most people, the idea of tattooing makeup on your face immediately conjures images of '90s and early '00s permanent and semi-permanent makeup. But what this type of procedure was 20, and even just 10, years ago is not what it is today. Still, make no mistake — this type of makeup is back, and it isn't going away any time soon.
When it comes to tattooing makeup on your face, the misconceptions that stem from what permanent and semi-permanent makeup was in the past are understandably hard to let go of. The tattoo guns and paper-thin eyebrow tattoos that existed in the past have now been (mostly) replaced with microblading — a semi-permanent procedure that involves a tiny, tiny, tiny blade digging into your skin so that ink can fill the tiny cut and tattoo you. The result is a completely natural-looking eyebrow when it's done correctly...

Permanent eyeliner healing time
Apr 18, 2019, Brow Beat Studios
Permanent eyeliner sounds like a dream. You can wipe your face, sneeze, have allergies, go swimming all with your eyeliner, not ending up on your cheek. But how do we get through the healing time of such a delicate area?
Permanent makeup application has become very popular amongst women over the past five years.
People have been wearing eyeliner since 3000 BC in cultures all around the world. The Egyptians believed that eyeliner would protect them from the harsh sun and that lead-based eyeliner had medicinal properties in the protection from disease. In India, men, women, and children wear kohl around their eyes and on their faces for fashion purposes and religion. Still, they also believe that wearing kohl will ward off unwanted spirits and energy.
In American culture, eyeliner was once considered sinful, and prostitutes and women of sin only wore it. Around the 1930s, makeup became more acceptable, and women of high societies could have it made for them uniquely. It came at a high price, and because of that, it became a sign of wealth and stature. Even George Washington wore lipstick and a powdered wig; it back then it was regarded as an indication of social standing.
The 1960s brought thick eyeliner to the forefront. Women started wearing eyeliner with curved ends designed to illuminate the eye giving an eye a full open illustrious look. The 1970s brought even more changes, with eyeliner moving towards the punk generation where eyeliner represented misfit life.
This phase often signified youths with black liner on tops and bottom. Punk eyeliner meant rebellion, depression, or contempt with modern social ideas. In the ’80s, eyeliner became a free for all with strong music movements fueling fashion and makeup for both men and women. Men could wear eyeliner freely with both New Wave and The Romantic phase becoming extremely popular. Rocks tars such as David Bowie, Mick Jagger, and Stephen Tyler all wore eyeliner as part of their mystery, and sexuality.
Whatever the case, eyeliner is here to stay, we all have our eyeliner style, and most of us feel like we can’t live without it. Eyeliner can be drawn in a multitude of ways close to the eye, winged or in the waterline, each way expressing how we are feeling day to day...

POWDER SHADING OR OMBRE BROWS
Powder or ombre brows are meant to create a powder look much like topical powder make up. They are not for creating hair strokes at all and are best for clients that want a more solid looking brow or have brows but want a base color. Solid brows are similar but usually have more density and often times last longer than just microblading.
Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure that involves a hand tool with tiny needles. It makes shallow cuts on the skin and deposits pigment, creating hair-like strokes along the eyebrow giving the appearance of hair on your eyebrows.
