What is the difference between microblading and microblading plus shading? As you can see in the picture below, microblading alone is sometimes not enough for the desired look, specially if you have minimal to zero natural hair. Adding some shading makes the eyebrow look more complete and filled in. A powder brow is similar to the shading part without the microblading and great for people who just want a soft makeup look. Microblading plus shading is also referred to as a “combo brow”. The more concentrated we go with color, the bolder of a makeup look you will get. For those unsure, I will start with a minimal concentration and you can always build up and add more at your touch up visit.
