This technique has been around for decades, but has been gradually improving over the years. The ombré powder fill method is more like a traditional tattoo, and involves the application of thousands of tiny dots of pigment, inserted into the skin, gradually building up a color and defined shape.
Ombre powder fill brows use a more traditional tattooing method, with longer lasting results, and works with most skin types, and is a better option for those with oily or combination skin. Clients come back for color boosts closer to the 12-18month mark. The brow is also fuller and more defined or dramatic than with the Microblading method.
Because this method has been around for a long time, it doesn’t have the best reputation. Many people are fearful of this method looking unnatural, because it does create a more defined, solid look than microblading alone. But today’s powder fill permanent brows are way more natural looking than their 1985 predecessors. In fact, ombre fill brows can be made to look very natural, by not saturating the desired brow shape 100% with pigment and allowing for a defined yet soft/non solid look.
For this technique brows will look significantly more dramatic versus Microblading during the healing process, but they will gradually peel off as the skin starts to heal and typically will fade in pigment once fully healed up to 40% For any permanent makeup procedure this isn’t something you would want to get done right before a special event or a planned vacation, you must allow your skin to heal for about 3 weeks.
