Ombré Powder Brows – The Makeup Effect

Light to Dark

Ombré Powder brows is a permanent makeup treatment that uses a shading technique by creating tiny dots on the skin with your pigment color of choice, producing the look of soft makeup brows. The finished result is a feathery but defined powder-like finish.

Procedure requires two sessions, 4 weeks apart (the second session is a touch up)
Procedure takes around 3 hours
Lasts anywhere between 1-3 years (A one year touch up is recommended)

During your appointment at Steady Micro, your artist will:

  • Map your brows based on your natural measurements
  • Match the pigment color to your skin and undertones
  •  Use the microblading technique to add shape, color, and definition to your eyebrows
  • Thoroughly review the healing process and aftercare instructions

At Steady Micro, we strive to achieve the most natural and healthy healed results in the permanent makeup industry. As a client, you will be involved and informed during the entire process to ensure you receive beautiful brows that you are comfortable and confident waking up to, everyday.
