What Are Ombre Brows?

Ombre brows, also a form of powder brows, are a permanent makeup technique that creates a soft, powdered effect on the eyebrows. Unlike microblading, which uses tiny strokes to mimic natural hairs done with a hand tool, ombre brows involve shading the entire brow area to achieve a gradient effect, with lighter color at the front of the brow fading into a darker color towards the tail, normally done with a tattoo machine. 

Requirements for Getting Ombre Brows Tattooed:

  1. Consultation: Before undergoing any permanent makeup procedure, it's essential to schedule a consultation with a qualified and experienced permanent makeup artist. During the consultation, your artist will assess your skin type, eyebrow shape, and desired results to determine if ombre brows are the right option for you.

  2. Healthy Skin: Healthy skin is crucial for achieving optimal results with permanent makeup. It's essential to have clear, unbroken skin in the brow area, free from any cuts, infections, or skin conditions.

  3. Realistic Expectations: While permanent ombre brows can enhance your natural beauty and save you time on your daily makeup routine, it's essential to have realistic expectations about the results. Your artist will work with you to create a customized shape and color that complements your facial features and lifestyle.

  4. Avoiding Certain Medications and Treatments: Before your appointment, your artist may advise you to avoid certain medications and treatments that can thin the blood or increase the risk of bleeding, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and blood-thinning supplements.

  5. Preparation: On the day of your appointment, it's essential to come to your session with clean, makeup-free skin. Avoid using any skincare products or makeup on your eyebrows, as this can interfere with the tattooing process.

  6. Aftercare: Proper aftercare is essential for ensuring the longevity and vibrancy of your ombre brows. Your artist will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your brows post-treatment, including avoiding water, sun exposure, and harsh skincare products during the healing process.
