Ombre Powder Brows are Effective at Faking Fuller Eyebrows. Powder Brows gives you a soft-shaded and transparent effect once it is healed.

Generally, the Powder technique is easy to color correct. This procedure is beneficial for clients with virgin eyebrows, as well as those who have old permanent makeup eyebrows tattoo that faded enough to cover up with powder technique.

In this micropigmentation method, we should see a transition from dense to more transparent color. Gone are the days where we had to use brush and brow pomade to achieve perfect brows.

What Happens During First Session?

1. Consultation

Every treatment starts with a consultation to determine if you are a candidate for the treatment. Please check the contradiction to the procedure. Master Artist explains what can and what can’t be achieved with permanent makeup.

How to Choose Color for Ombre Powder Brows?

During the consultation, it is important to look at the client's style, hair, and makeup and assess their skin tone. Permanent makeup artists can paint the forehead with three colors to see how they look on the client’s skin and select the right color for the most personalized beauty look. It is important to keep in mind the client’s wishes and preferences.

Choose lighter pigment color

Always choose a lighter pigment shade, since the process of darkening is much easier than lightning. It is easier to darken a brown that has healed too light and easier to warm up a brow that has healed too cool.

In general, it is important to avoid eyebrow pigments that have a blue base. If you have virgin eyebrows it is important to start with lighter colors. This way it won’t be a shocking experience and once you get used to the new look you can request a bolder look.

Chose warmer colors

Choose warmer colors. Usually, it is easier to cool the color than make it warmer. You can cool the color by adding some green or greyish pigments.

Determine skin tone & type

When choosing a color we need to determine the type of the client’s skin. It is important to categorize the client into one of three skin types, this will help to determine what color to use. We have 3 skin types:

  • cool
  • neutral
  • warm

The most important pieces of information are to understand the base or undertone of the pigment color we are using as well as an undertone of one’s skin.

2. Eyebrows mapping & pre-drawing

It is good to bring pictures of eyebrows styles that you like and show how you usually like them. Artists might ask about your natural eyebrows shape if you lost them due to overplucking or health problems. The artist will create a frame around your eyebrows and show you the design. Once eyebrows measuring and shaping are accepted, it is time for microshading.

3. Numbing & tattooing

Many layers of pigment consist of a series of many fine dots that vary in concentration; this creates a beautiful effect on powdered brows. Topical numbing agents can be applied to make service more tolerable. Usually, the discomfort is very small.

What Happens After the First Session?

At first, permanent makeup looks much darker, because the color stays in the outer layers of the skin, color softens within a few days after treatment as the upper layer of the skin begins to exfoliate.

Powder brows scabbing depends on your aftercare and skin type. Once the scabbing is gone, your eyebrows will appear much lighter. Remember do not pick your eyebrows, this could result in infection or pigment loss.

Powder Ombre Brows Scabbing

Eyebrow scabbing is a normal reaction of the skin to the procedure, every client reacts differently. With the Powder Eyebrow technique usually scabbing is very little.

It all depends on the client's skin type and pigmentation implementation depth. Each skin absorbs pigment differently. Proper aftercare helps with smooth healing.

Touch-Up Session

Many clients are happy with the results after the first session and think they do not need to touch up, which is wrong. During the second touch-up session, the Permanent Makeup Master will focus on analyzing healed results and pay attention to details.

The second secession concentrates on perfecting the work, filling missing parts, and adding more color, this will prolong results and insure great final results. Touch-up concentrates on improving:

  • color
  • density
  • shape

During the perfection procedure, we compare both eyebrows, if the brow is different or more intense we focus on the brow that needs to be corrected more. Many times it is due to the sleeping habits of the client, some people sleep on one side and it results in pigment loss.

Ombre Powder Eyebrows Healing Process

The intense color and redness right after treatment are normal. Do not worry.

Please remember that proper aftercare is as important as proper treatment.

Please remove excess lymph from your eyebrows with clean tissue. This will prevent large scabs from forming.

After 4 days you can start applying a very thin layer of cream provided by the Artist. If you put a thicker layer of ointment it might cause faster pigment loss.

Please remember to clean your eyebrows before applying another layer of ointment. You will observe the final results after about 4-6 weeks. Since the second treatment is not as intense as the first one, usually you can expect the healing process to last shorter.

Ombre Powder Brows Aftercare

Proper aftercare plays an important role in the final results. Because this is a semi- semi-permanent tattoo, be sure to understand the skin healing process.

Keeping the area free from bacteria is vital to prevent an infection. There may be some redness, slight swelling, and the treated area may have a thin crust. The healing process varies from person to person.

  • Do not wet your eyebrows, keep them dry
  • Avoid working out and sweating
  • Do not touch and peel off the scabs
  • Avoid sun exposure
  • Do not put makeup around eyebrows
  • Avoid facials and harsh products
  • Use a thin layer of aftercare cream

How Do You Take Care of Ombre Powder Eyebrows?

Besides your skin type, the speed of pigment fading depends on the cosmetics you use, as well as your lifestyle and sun exposure. If you don’t use sunscreen your eyebrows could fade faster. Remember to avoid harsh products and treatments around your eyebrows.


The Ombre Powder Brows method is great for all skin types and clients of every age, heals very soft and natural. This technique gives a “filled-in” eyebrows effect and is less invasive than other methods. Clients with old microblading are falling in love with this technique because it lasts longer and doesn’t cause trauma to the skin.
