Ombre Brows vs. Microblading: What’s the difference??

Ombre Brows va. Microblading


“The eyes are the window to the soul,” a beautiful quote from William Shakespeare with a lot of weight. Your eyes are one of the most important features you can have. When people talk to you they stare into your eyes, which means your eyebrow shape is just as important. Your eyebrows are what help to frame and shape your eyes and face. Not everyone has their version of the perfect eyebrow shape either from over plucking or just genetics. To help people who drew their eyebrows on every day, permanent makeup tattooing was born.

Take the concept of brow makeup but turn it into semi-permanent makeup tattooing procedures that are smudge proof and last, that’s permanent makeup eyebrows.

Now, you have Ombre Brows, Microblading, Nano Brows, and Combo Brows. The two most popular and trending PMU eyebrow procedures are the Ombre Brows and Microblading.

Ombre Brows are also known as Powder Brows because when the procedure is finished, your brows have a powder makeup look to them. Ombre Brows are made with a Permanent Makeup machine, dipped into PMU pigment, and are ‘tattooed’ on. The brows will start with a faded bulb at the front, then go into a darker shade towards the tail. Ombre Brows tend to be larger and more bold because of the coloring and the sizing of them.

Microblading Brows are more natural looking because when they’re done, the strokes create the illusion of brow hairs. What happens is a Microblading Blade or PMU device is dipped into permanent makeup ink, then strategically little cut are placed along or inside the brows. These cuts are ‘strokes’ going up that made it appear as if you have real hair in those areas. The finished look creates the appearance of brow hairs which gives your eyebrows a fuller look.

Both Microblading and Ombre Brows allow for people to recreate their brows and in two different ways. The beauty is you can choose which eyebrow style best fits your lifestyle. You have options for your brows. Both are in high demand, making their trainings highly desirable. You can take Skyn’s Ombre Brow Online Training Course or Microblading Online Training Course, and in 3 weeks become certified.

The eyes are windows to your soul, so make sure you frame them the right way with your eyebrows.
