The Difference Between Shading/Powder brows and Microblading

Updated: Jul 15, 2021

What’s better.... Microblading or Shading?.... The answer is, IT DEPENDS!

A variety of factors can influence this decision.

Is your skin is prone to being oily, are you looking for a more filled-in look, or do you have mature skin that has aged prematurely from sun exposure? YES!

You should get SHADING/POWDERED!

The SHADING/ POWDERED technique will look more like a makeup effect. I also suggest this technique for those who have rosacea and thin/sensitive skin. Why? There is a high chance of the pigment changing to an “ashy color” on clients with this condition. There is also a chance of scaring or the pigment migrating is lower than with Microblading.

Do you have patchy spots in your natural eyebrows with normal to dry skin and are looking for a NATURAL look? YES!

You should get MICROBLADING ;)

It is perfect for clients that already have brow hair, and for those who want to fill in gaps in their eyebrows where hair is missing because the strokes can be made to mimic the natural hair thickness and color.

If the most important factor in your cosmetic treatment for you is longevity, we would suggest NOT opting for this MICROBLADING technique.

Both techniques will provide the illusion of a natural brow. Using the Shading Eyebrows technique, we use a dark shade in the head of the eyebrows and go lighter toward the tail of the eyebrows giving a soft finish. Therefore, it won’t look like you have drawn your brows with a sharpie.

Overall, if you don’t want to deal with the upkeep of your eyebrows, there are options available at Posh that you can consider for getting the perfect eyebrow look.
