Getting our eyebrows perfect every morning is not an easy task. Applying just the right amount of plucking, colour and shaping, not to mention getting them as symmetrical as possible, takes time that most of us simply don’t have. Thankfully, technology has come to the rescue, in the form of permanent eyebrows.
Permanent eyebrow tattoos are not as severe as you might think. Unlike traditional tattoos, this treatment uses microblading technology to create hyper-realistic individual hair strokes, creating a flattering, polished finish that is extremely natural looking. And if you’re keen on staying up with the trends, the latest fashion for ombre eyebrows can also be effectively carried out by your permanent makeup practitioner.
What is the ombre technique?
You might be more familiar with the term ‘ombre’ in relation to a hair trend. Hollywood A-listers are sporting ombre brows more than any other makeup trend today. You think you’d notice, right? But actually, unless you’re specifically looking for the signs, it’s very hard to notice.
Before you start panicking that to be ‘on fleek’ you need to have two-toned eyebrows, let us put your mind at rest. Ombre brows are much subtler than similar technique for hair, and it’s all about blending and shading to create a beautiful, natural look.
The word ‘ombre’ comes from the French word which means ‘shaded’. It uses a lighter colour on the inside of the brows, darkening to a bolder colour as you move through the arch. The finished brow has a very natural, powdery look to them, and is diffuse and soft around the edges. It’s a great way to add definition and depth to otherwise wishy-washy brows.
