I Got My Eyebrows Powdered. Here’s What to Expect.

I won’t blame you for being, like, “What’s that?”

Powered brows, sometimes known as ombre brows or micro shading, utilize a somewhat similar procedure to microblading but have some additional advantages. Many people prefer this method due to its soft and natural look and less invasive nature.

Cartoon made it clear that powered brows gave both better definition and better density in color, so they would be more likely to achieve my goal of a structured and severe brow line. Cost and longevity were comparable to microblading across the board, but the technique was less invasive.

“Do you think it will look…good? Or, like, it won’t look really, really bad?”

Cartoon laughed in reply. “Customers love it. They sometimes get microblading and come in and say ‘I want powder now.”

“You’ll have to do more upkeep to make sure the powder shows through,” Cartoon warned. She was referencing the fact that my natural brows would grow in so thick and long they might completely ellipse the tattoo.

“I love it,” I replied. “I will.”

She held a mirror over my head. I was surprised and, then, I allowed myself to be in awe. She’d done a brilliant job; my brows, which were often thick and unruly had become dark sleek creatures that perfectly emphasized the eyes beneath them. “I love it,” I whispered in a typically over dramatic fashion.

And then, I was almost finished.

The Price

It’s not cheap.

The Inception

Do your research! Don’t trust Instagram and Yelp to be the end by which you can compare artists over; look for artists who have a wide range of reviews over years, with personal pictures submitted by costumers, to prove their validity.

The Outcome

As with any form, no matter how severe of body modification, you might feel panic during the process or afterwards.
