Powder brows (also known as powder brow tattoo or shaded brows) is a semi-permanent make-up procedure for eyebrow enhancement in which the artist inserts PMU pigments into the top layers of the skin with a tattoo machine designed using the dotting technique, or pixelization.
As a result, a powdery eyebrow effect is achieved, and misty, powdered brows are created.

What Are the Pros of Powder Brows?
There are many advantages to choosing powder brows.

Moreover, this procedure works with all skin types, including oily skin which can be problematic for microblading. Most clients come back for color boosts after 12 – 18 months.
Finally, the eyebrow looks much more defined and dramatic than with the classic, microblading method. The results resemble the look of wearing eyebrow powder.
What Is the Difference Between Microblading and Powder Brows?
Even though the two procedures are somewhat similar, that is, both involve the artist inserting the pigment into the surface layers of your skin, the technique used is different, as well as the result, which is the biggest difference between powder brows and microblading.
Microblading creates individual strokes that resemble the eyebrow hairs, while powder brows create tiny dots to achieve a misty, powder-filled brow. By doing so, the result resembles the look of makeup application that includes a shade underneath the hairs.
What is powder brows’ advantage over microblading is the fact that powder brows last a bit longer than microblading, which is typically around 18 years on average, without touch ups.
The choice between microblading vs powder brows comes down to which style you prefer. Unlike microblading, powder brows don’t look perfectly natural, but rather like an on-point brow makeup look.

What Are Powder OMBRE Brows?
A popular way of doing powder brows is by creating the powder ombre effect.

This results in a three-dimensional look.
