What is microshading?

Where before microblading mimicked the look of individual hairs to fill in any patches or gaps where your eyebrows just straight up refuse to grow, microshading is all about creating an airbrushed finish that's straight out of your fave beauty vlogger's Insta grid.

Geared towards those with oily or sensitive brows, microshading uses tiny dots of pigment in place of hair like strokes to create a softer gradient of colour as if the brows have been filled in with powder. You can see why the technique is also being referred to as 'powder brows'.

The Pros

  • Microshading lasts as long as microblading, with the final look lasting around a year and a half.
  • It looks neat as hell. If a seriously perfect Insta brow with the signature faded in front is your bag, then this is for you.
  • Sparse, thinning brows suddenly look fuller and thicker without using a pencil or powder everyday.
  • Not having to fill in your eyebrows everyday will add literal years to your life.
