Microblading and shading
What is Microblading?
Microblading also known as 3D, eyebrow embroidery or feather stroke eyebrows is a form of cosmetic tattooing. The technique uses a manual pencil like tool that has pre-sterilized single use fixed pins that implant pigment to the uppermost layer of the dermis. Because the needles are 3 times smaller than the ones used on a machine, the results are more natural looking hair strokes. This technique does not require the use of a machine.
What is manual shading?
Manual shading is a technique that also uses a pencil like tool with tiny pins where pigment is implanted into the skin via a tapping motion. The gradual application of pigment builds color and a more defined brow shape. This technique does not require the use of a machine.
When the pigment is applied to the entire brow using this technique, once healed will result in a "soft powder filled" defined appearance.
When pigment is applied lightly to the frontal bulb of the brow then gradually building density to the body and tail once healed will result in an "ombre" appearance.
The combination of microblading and manual shading can achieve a more natural look.
