"Microblading" was THE topic this year when it came to thicker brows. But now comes "microshading" - and promises even more natural results.
It was THE beauty hype of the last few months - at least for everyone who has always wanted thicker eyebrows: microblading, a Japanese hand pigmentation method. With a kind of scalpel, fine lines are scratched into the skin and then filled with a pigment. The effect: the brows look fuller, livelier and more symmetrical. The process takes around two hours and costs around 300 euros for the initial treatment.
Microblading: can only be carried out by real professionals
We were in awe of watching videos of tattoo artists drawing hair-thin lines on YouTube. However: the microblading effect depends heavily on the skills of the beautician. If the stitches are too deep, the skin could be irreparably damaged and scarring. But even if this worst-case scenario does not occur - a bungling result is a horror in terms of looks (here are the worst microblading fail pictures).
Microshading: what is the difference to microblading?
But now a new, improved variant of "microblading" is coming from the USA to the beauty salon. "Microshading" is the name of the technique that is particularly suitable for sensitive or oily skin and is supposed to promise a particularly natural result.
With "microshading", no elongated cracks are engraved in the skin, but tiny dots are only placed in the gaps of the eyebrows with a tattoo needle and then filled in with permanent make-up.
As a result, the result is not so hard and, if in doubt, extreme, but shaded (= #shading) just like a light brow powder. With the advantage that it doesn't go away with the next wash of your face. In addition, the thin skin under the eyebrows is not stressed so much by the puncture, it heals faster and does not become rough. The result should also last up to two years. The costs for the initial treatment are around 300 euros.
Attention: In the first time after the "microshading" the brows still look a little too dark and unnatural. The actual, very natural effect is only really visible after two days.
Well, then we hope that the new eyebrow technique will soon also be offered in Austria …
