The Difference Between Microblading and Microshading Explained

March 21, 2022 | #Microblading
Eyebrows draw attention to our eyes—the windows to our face. It’s no wonder why eyebrows are so big in the makeup industry and beauty industry, they are attention grabbers and help us feel confident whether we have makeup on or not. Eyebrows help frame our face and there are so many ways to wear them: fluffy, thin, thick, drawn, or tattooed.

Have you ever looked at someone and instantly fell in love with their eyebrows? We have too. Admiring the beauty in others is a wonderful thing to do and sometimes we are almost inclined to mimic their look. A great pair of brows let us feel ready to take on the world while feeling self-confident.

Brows allow us to express ourselves in different ways. Some of us prefer darker, thicker brows, while others love and don’t mind the natural brow look or thin brows. Makeup artists are also big on brows—How should I shape or fill in my clients' brows? What look is my client aiming for? Should I make the brows subtle or dramatic? Eyebrows can give someone the power to feel confident, put together, and ready for the day.

The aestheticians at Biologi Spa specialize in permanent makeup: microblading, microshading, lip blushing, and ombre lips. Going back to our mission—to enhance beauty—everyone is beautiful, and Biologi Spa is here to highlight your best features. Picture this: waking up without having to apply makeup—you’re slaying, just like Beyonce would say.

Our client favorites include microblading and microshading, but what is the difference? Our experts want to explain that today!

What does microshading brows mean?

Microshading brows involve using pin-like dot pigmentation to achieve a powdered, airbrush eyebrow look. It inserts specialized pigment under the skin in a gradient pattern using needles. This technique is less invasive than microblading and leaves brows looking misty and ready for the day. We recommend microshading to clients with over-plucked, sparse, or light-colored eyebrows.

The pros of microshading:

  • Resembles eyebrow powder
  • Creates thicker, fuller eyebrows
  • Ideal for sensitive or oily skin
The cons of microshading:

  • Semi-permanent, you’ll need a touch-up after 6 months
  • Causes mild discomfort
Microshading could be the pick-me-up your eyebrows need to look fuller to make you feel more confident than ever. Forget coloring in your brows, we got you covered.

What does microblading brows mean?

Microblading brows involve using a bladed needle to apply pigmentation underneath the skin. Rather than little dots, these are strokes that are longer and meant to mimic actual eyebrow hairs. While microblading brows is essentially getting a tattoo, the ink that is used for this procedure is less concentrated and less invasive than regular tattoo ink.

The pros of microblading:

  • The hairlike strokes look like real hair
  • Fills and changes the look of your brows
  • Light finish
  • Ideal for dry skin
The cons of microblading:

  • Semi-permanent, you’ll need a touch-up after 8 months
  • Causes mild discomfort
Microblading could be just the thing you need to make your makeup routine quick and easy in the mornings. Forget drawing your brows, we got you covered. Get liberated from eyebrow stencils today.

I’m scared that I won’t like the results

Understandable. Anything that involves tattooing, even if it's just semi-permanent, on our faces is scary, but rest assured that our experienced aestheticians will give you results you love. Prior to microshading or microblading, we measure your face to make sure the shape of eyebrows you want is suitable for your face. We consider symmetry, outline, and facial features—we consider it all so you don’t have to worry about a thing besides making the decision to do it.

Pretty much, at Biologi Spa we’ll never start anything without the required preparation and addressing all your questions or concerns. We understand that each client has different wants for their eyebrows and our aestheticians will do their best to give you what you want while also educating you on the process. Whatever skin type you have, we’ll make educated recommendations on what procedure you should get or should not get. We don’t beat around the bush when it comes to your face—or anything else.

After your procedure, you can feel comfortable saying goodbye to patchy or uneven eyebrows. Feeling unconfident when looking in the mirror will become nonexistent once you start microshading or microblading your eyebrows. These treatments will end the cycle of smudged brows and free you from having to check your compact mirror throughout your girls night out.
