What is Ombre Powder Brow?
A small tattoo machine is used to insert pigment. This digital method of micropigmentation deposits ink on the surface of the skin and the tattoo will heal/peel for 7-10 days depending on your skin. This procedure may last up to two years or so before you need to refresh the colour. It’s suited for anyone who wants more of a lightly filled makeup look. With this method you really don’t need to fill your brows in everyday! Ombre powder creates a misty, powder filled brow similar to the look of makeup. The tails of the brow are darker, and fade into a light start to the brow, giving that perfect ombre makeup affect!
What is the difference between Ombre powder vs Microblading?
The ombre powder technique differs from Microblading in that it creates a shaded affect on the brow. Microblading creates hair stroke to create what appears like simulated hair.
Why did I choose Ombre powder
I personally chose to get ombre powder done vs microblading because many of my girlfriends have gotten microblading done many times. It seems to fade quicker or they want a more shaded effect and keep getting it done. I wanted more of a powedered makeup look as if I always have my eyebrows filled. I have thicker hair but I have never been happy with my shape. Before I felt like my eyebrows were not “sisters” or even related to be honest. I felt I lacked hair at the front, my one brow had more hair in the middle and another one was arched more. So filling in my brows was really a challenge for me and never felt I could get it symmetrical, even with makeup.
Did the procedure hurt?
Janny started filling the outline of the shape before the numbing gel kicked in and even then I would rate that a 2/10 on the pain scale. Like I said in the video above, my period cramps or migraines hurt more. Janny kept applying the numbing gel throughout the entire procedure and when it kicks in, all you feel is as if something is tugging your skin. I am very scared of needles and never got any tattoo before so I was pleasantly surprised with how painless it was.
Thoughts post procedure
I would say day 1-3 your brows are very bold, dark and thick. Doing my research and having Janny explain the procedure put me at ease that the colour will lighten and the brows will shrink in size. So please do not be alarmed. You must be patient and wait for it to heal to see the intended results. I started noticing flaking day 4 and each day they are getting lighter. I apply the ointment Janny provided me twice a day.
I will be updating this post with my ombre powder journey! Stay tuned!

I am so happy that my eyebrows are symmetrical and look so natural. Getting ready for work or going out is so much faster for me now. I am so happy with the shape and how symmetrical my brows look now.
