We're all familiar with the saying: Your eyebrows are supposed to be sisters, not twins. But for some of us, the arches of our brows are more distant, like second or third cousins — at different heights, with varied degrees of fullness — and we choose to put in tedious mirror time to shape them closer towards symmetrical.

Such was the plight of Celeste Northern, our featured client in the most recent episode of Refinery29's YouTube series, Macro Beauty. In today's episode, Northern visits Cat Chung, lead artist at NYC's Tint Brow Studio, to try an innovative new approach to microblading known as ombré powder brows.

According to Chung, the ombré powder brow is a permanent-makeup technique designed to diffuse the drama of a tattooed eyebrow. "The ombré powder brow service is a bit newer to the market," Chung says. "It involves lighter shading in the front of the brow with gradual darkening towards the tails, which creates a super-natural result."

The service is ideal for a client like Northern, who's just looking to save herself a few minutes in the morning by eliminating the need for everyday eyebrow makeup. Her goal is for her brows to be more defined and "filled in," and a smidge more symmetrical, but her big caveat is that she wants to keep them looking natural.

The microblading process with ombré powder is a marriage of geometry and art, and for Chung, it can take up to three hours from start to finish. First, she closely inspects Northern's natural brows, noticing sparseness towards the ends where she'll fill in for shape. Next, she applies a stick-on ruler lamination to the forehead, and stencils the angles of each arch to confirm symmetry. Then, she applies a numbing cream before using a small tattoo pen to shade the brows, working from the tail to the head on each side.

Afterwards, Northern is able to admire her new eyebrows. "Oh my God, I'm obsessed," she exclaims, checking the mirror and noting the subtlety of the results. "I was a little nervous that I was going to walk out looking very extreme — like I had very bold eyebrows — but that's definitely not the case. This is definitely a confidence-booster." Check out the entire process in the video above.

Microblading Behind The Scenes

Behind the scenes is a huge part of microblading that we know you enjoy watching! It’s quite amazing the process that takes place from the second you start on the brows until the very end. We first start by asking the client about their desired look and sometimes they show us pictures and then we start mapping out the brow outline onto their face. We use special tools to make the brows perfect for your face because each pair of brows is different. We show how we do this and next you’ll see how we start the actual microblading process. The detail is so intense you can’t stop watching! But best of all is the client’s reaction when we show them their new brows!

If you see in our behind the scenes videos, it’s not as complicated of a process as most individuals think. First, we start the brow design outline, get your approval, pick a color, do the actual microblading, then finish by reviewing the aftercare. It goes so quickly because we are experts at what we do and have numerous testimonials to prove it so we want you to hear from these individuals yourself!

If you haven't been sucked into a blackhole of microblading eyebrows before and after Insta stalking by now, then frankly we applaud you.

Because, if, like us, your eyebrows suffered at the hands of the noughties and Christina Aguilera-esque tadpoles (check out the eyebrow mistakes to avoid here) then an obsession with microblading is basically inevitable.

The semi-permanent secret to faking fuller eyebrows that look totally natural, microblading might just be the hassle-free solution to spending hours pencilling in your eyebrows only to get the shape so completely wrong.

Not sure what we're talking about? We sent Digital Beauty Editor George Driver to microblading expert and eyebrow miracle worker Suman Jalaf of SumanBrows Beauty Atelier to get the lowdown...



Everything You Need To Know About Microblading

What is microblading?

'Microblading is a type of eyebrow architecture. It is all about creating the best shape for each face – a totally bespoke approach for each client,' explains Jalaf.

'The process is very precise thanks to the tool that is used which is effectively like a pen with the nib being a sloped blade with 10-12 little needles at the end - needles that don’t penetrate the skin but just delicately scratch the surface, much like a paper cut.

'The needle very finely implants featherweight strokes with a medical grade pigment on the epidermis layer for the skin, creating fine, realistic and natural hair strokes.'


How is microblading eyebrows different to having your brows tattooed?

'Microblading, unlike tattooing, is not in the deep layer of skin, but more on the surface. This is also not permanent, and the colour fades within 18 months.

'The hair strokes are far more natural and finer than any tattoo, as a handheld needle/blade is used – there is no electrical gadget that permeates deep in this technique. There is therefore more of a scratching noise, rather than a buzz of a tattoo gun which pierces the skin so deeply.'


What is microshading and how is it different to microblading?

Yes the names might sound confusingly similar but microblading and microshading are totally different, we promise.

Both forms of semi-permanent make-up for your eyebrows, they have a few subtle but important differences. Compared to microblading's super precise, individual hair look, microshading has a much softer finish. Think of it like using a brow pencil compared to a brow powder or pomade.

Where microblading tattoos hair-like strokes in your existing brows, microshading tattoos tiny dots along your brows for a less defined finish.

Not sure which technique is for you? Fear not, because often technicians combine both methods to create the most realistic and natural finish.

Can you be allergic to microblading?

'There are people who are sensitive and allergic to some pigments, but in my experience this is extremely rare. I will always perform a patch or scratch test to check you are not allergic prior to the treatment.'

How much does microblading cost?

'A Suman microblading treatment costs £500. This includes a consultation, the initial treatment as well as a top up treatment after 6-8 weeks.'

What actually happens when you get your eyebrows microbladed?

1. 'I shape the brow area by threading the hairs, cleaning up the area and preparing it for the treatment.'

2. 'Numbing – this takes 40mins using a topical ointment. While this is working its numbing magic, I'll show the client colour swatches and discuss together the best shade for their desired look.'


3. '10 minutes before the numbing cream has got to a stage of working, I'll use my tools to begin measuring the area around the brows, taking into account face shape, symmetry, facial features etc.'

4. 'Then I begin the needling process - gently implanting the pigment via featherweight strokes. Each stroke is a superficial line in the skin where the colour pigment seeps in and settles then. If there is any discomfort at this stage we add another quick layer of numbing cream to the area which will become effective after 5 minutes.'

5. 'I add on a final layer of pigment that stays on for 5mins, clean the area and et voila – beautiful brows!'


6. 'In 6-8 weeks there's a top-up session to fill in any gaps where the pigment hasn't taken or healed properly.'

Why is there a top up microblading session and when does this happen?

'The top up session happens after 6-8 weeks. This is the time where I can assess the first steps, and add in any further strokes and add a darker pigment if preferred.'

What happens in the mean time?

'You'll need to follow the after care instructions (see below) and avoid any picking or scratching. Your eyebrows will start to heal over, much like a tattoo, which might cause irritation but is totally normal.

'In the next ten days or so your eyebrows will change colour, might become flaky and look like they've faded but this is totally normal. They'll reveal their final colour and shape after around 30 days. This can then be topped up at the second session.'


How do you know what eyebrow shape to go for? Should we bring pictures?

'Clients are welcome to bring in images of the style of brow they like, or come in with the brow make up they normally wear on a day to day basis – but I'll determine the colour and shape to use from my years of experience.'

Get the right colour microblading...

'People come in and tend to want darker than I suggest, but it's always better to go a little more natural – you can always add more into the top up session for a darker colour.

'I'll look at your hair colour, eye colour and skin tone using the Fitzpatrick Chart, which also takes into account how your skin will change with sun exposure etc., to ensure the correct colour pigment choice.'

Get the right shape microblading...

'I'll measure up your eyebrows using a Microblading Ruler to choose the perfect shape of brow which is individual to each client. Based on this, I'll freehand the final shape.'

How long does microblading last?

'Microblading lasts anything between 12-18 months, but the longevity of the pigment will depend on your skin type.

'People with slightly more oily skin will tend to last around the 12 month mark before needing a top up, but those with normal skin can last up to 18 months.

'Your brows will eventually fade away if you don’t continue with top ups every 18 months or so. There is no scaring or discolouration with the pigments used, so you wouldn’t know if you left them to fade out.'

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Does microblading hurt?

'It doesn’t hurt as such, it is more a sensation. The process itself is not painful thanks to the numbing ointment that is applied. It's sometimes the sound of the blade which people find worse – a small scratching sound.

'The whole process is very quick – it's actually the numbing which takes most of the time (50mins), you aren’t under the needle for the whole 2 hours.'

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Can microbladed eyebrows be undone/removed?

'Yes – the pigment used leaves no scarring or discolouration, and I can use a salt/saline solution to remove microbladed brows.

'It is very important to know and understand that brows will be up to 40% darker in shade for the first 7-10 days during the healing process where scabs can form and flake off.

'Ladies can sometimes leave the studio, and two days later be terrified that their brows are too dark, but please be patient – as this is totally normal! After 7-10 days, you will begin to see the final colouring.'

The Microblading Dos and Don'ts

There's a few of them...

In Advance...

1. Do not pick, tweeze, wax or have electrolysis one week prior.

2. Do not use sunbeds or sit in direct sunlight two weeks before.

3. Do not have any type of facial or peel two weeks prior.

4. Stop using any retinol or Vitamin A products one month prior.

5. No exercising on the day.

6. Do not have botox three weeks before.

7. Do not take fish oil or Vitamin E one week prior (these are natural blood thinners).

8. Do not wax or tint your eyebrows three days prior.

On The Day...

1. Do not drink alcohol 24-48 hours prior to your appointment.

2. Do not drink coffee 2 hours prior.

3. Do not take aspirin or ibuprofen 24 hours prior.

The Post-Microblading Rules

Days 1-7...

1. Gently wash your eyebrows every morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap such as Cetaphil. Ensure all soap is rinsed away and dry by gently patting with a tissue. This will not remove the pigment.

DO NOT use any cleansers containing acids or exfoliants.

2. Apply a very small amount of coconut or rosehip oil to each brow morning and night.

Can I Get Microblading Over an Old Eyebrow Tattoo? A Complete Guide to Permanent Makeup Cover Ups (with pictures)

Learn | MLA Staff

Learn | MLA Staff

Clients with existing eyebrow tattooing or permanent makeup come to us all the time. They want to know if we can perform microblading over the old tattoo. The truth is, we can’t always work on it if you already have an old eyebrow tattoo. However all hope is not lost!
Here’s everything you need to know.

1. If you’re considering coming to our studio and you already have permanent makeup, send us pictures first. 

A Master Artist will look at the photos to determine whether or not we can work with you. Take 3 photos; one straight on, and one from each side, so we can see each tail of the eyebrow. Make sure the photos are:
  1. In natural lighting (daylight)

Click here to send us photos for evaluation.

2. We can only cover up an old eyebrow tattoo up if the previous work is very light and the ink is not deposited too deep.

If your eyebrow tattoo is dark, the hairstrokes will not show up. Think about it like this: if you drew an eyebrow on paper and filled it in with a pen, and then drew hairstrokes over it with the same pen, you would not be able to see the hair strokes. 
The same is true with microblading and an eyebrow tattoo. If there is too much pigment density or if the ink is placed too deeply, our artist will not be able to create beautiful, natural eyebrows for you.
Most times, we cannot microblade over an old tattoo, because the previous work is too dark, too deep, or too dense.

3. We will use a shading or combo technique to cover up the eyebrow tattoo.

Know that we cannot perform pure microblading over a previous PMU because part of our work is covering up the previous work. So, we use a combination or a shading technique.
Shading is when the artist fills in the brow to resemble a powdered look.
Combo brows is when you combine shading with microblading to create a look that has some hairstrokes but is filled-in, giving a fuller look overall.
When we're doing a cover up, the shading allows the artist to blend our work with theirs.

Once you send in your 3 photos, our artist will make a recommendation for what is best with your situation.

Eyebrow Tattoo Cover upEyebrow Tattoo Cover Up with Microblading

4. If we cannot perform a tattoo coverup, tattoo removal may be the best option.

We have very limited ability to do removals in house.
However, if you elect to get removal elsewhere, research “saline removal” or “laser removal” (pico laser removal is one of the most advanced forms of laser removal currently on the market) and decide what’s best for you. Your practitioner will be able to make a recommendation based on your brows.
We hope this helps you understand your options if you already have an eyebrow tattoo or permanent makeup. Of course, if you have any questions, please give us a call at 1-855-MLA-BROW or send us a message here.
Remember, if you have previous PMU, it is very important to send us three pictures, preferably in natural lighting, with zero eyebrow makeup on.

If I had to guess, you clicked on this story because you’re over filling in your eyebrows every damn day. We’ve all been there—spending so much time (and $$$) loading up your brows with gels and pencils only to have them slide off your face a few hours later. And now that you want off the struggle bus, you’re considering microblading, the semi-permanent form of brow tattooing. But if the idea of microblading scares you too much to try it (there’s something about permanent makeup that feels so…permanent), don’t psych yourself out. Not only does the process hurt way less than you think, but the results actually don’t last forever—which is great news if you’re still weighing your options.

You’ve probably got a lot of questions about microblading, and thankfully for you, I’ve got all the answers. I turned to makeup artist, certified esthetician, and cosmetic tattoo specialist Piret Aava, aka the eyebrow doctor, for alllll the info. P.S. I even tried out the treatment myself, so keep reading for my before-and-after pics.

Microblading 101

What is brow microblading?

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Instead of using a traditional tattoo gun, microblading requires the use of a small tool with teeny, tiny needles. These needles are used to manually draw delicate hair strokes while also depositing pigment under your skin. The result? Realistic-looking brow hairs that don’t wash off.

Is microblading a tattoo?

Yes, but also, like, no. Tattoos last forever, and microblading is a form of semi-permanent tattooing (keep reading if you wanna know how long it lasts) because the hairlike strokes aren’t as deeply ingrained into the skin (compared to, say, hairlike strokes created by a tattoo gun). The pigment used in microblading is also different from what you’d get with a tattoo, because your body eventually ends up metabolizing it and it fades away. Plus, the dye particles are less concentrated in microblading ink, which gives your brows a softer, more realistic look.

Who is a good candidate for microblading?

The coolest thing about this treatment is that a good microblading specialist can create the appearance of naturally full brows on anyskin tone with any shade range. Also, fun fact, if you lost your brows due to alopecia, you’re still a candidate for microblading. On her clients, Piret creates a custom color using several shades that match your hair color, so your brows will look multidimensional and ~real~. Don’t believe me? Check out a few examples of Piret’s work below:

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

How long does microblading last?

Depending on your skin type, microblading will last you anywhere from one to three years (oiler skin types tend to fade the fastest) but, says Piret, clients should go back after four weeks for a touch-up and to check in to make sure they’re happy with the end result (these appointments cost less than the initial price of microblading; more on the $$ below). After those first four weeks, Piret says you typically won’t need a touch-up for 12 months.

How much does it cost to have your eyebrows microbladed?

Um, basically, you should start saving up…now. Sorry, buuutmicroblading isn’t cheap: Depending on where you live and where you get them done, expect to pay anywhere from $500 to $2,000.And if you want to see Piret, start budgeting—an appointment with her costs $2,000, which includes that initial touch-up that’s baked into the cost. That said, brow products aren’t cheap and time is money, so it can definitely be worth the cost for anyone not feeling their natural brows.

The Appointment

What happens during a microblading appointment?

I’ve always had bushy brows, but as I’ve gotten older, the beginning and tail end of my arches have definitely thinned out, which made me want to try microblading. I’m not going to lie: I was kind of nervous about the whole semi-permanent part, but Piret reassured me that she’d draw in my brows first to make sure I liked the shape before she officially microbladed them.

After I approved the shape, I laid back down on a sterile, hospital-like bed. Piret then began creating the tiny superficial cuts in and along my brow, depositing the pigment over my arches so it would seep into the hairlike wounds she had just created.

Okay, I know this all sounds super painful and scary, but I promise it’s surprisingly not. If you’ve ever threaded your eyebrows, microblading feels pretty similar. It was definitely uncomfortable, but I wouldn’t call it painful? More like annoying little scratches, if anything. Plus, the whole procedure from start to finish took only about an hour, so it wasn’t anything too intense.

Post-microblading, I took about a hundred selfies and went off to spread the gospel to anyone who would listen. I, thankfully, also had a totally normal healing experience: A few weeks later, my brows looked as natural and as thick as I’d always wanted.

Piret Aava

Does microblading require aftercare?

Now, listen up because if you do decide to get your brows done, this part is super important: For a week after your appointment, do not get your brows wet or sweaty. So go ahead and hit pause on your at-home workouts. And if you’re, like, a professional athlete or something and you absolutely need to work out, Piret highly recommends covering them with ointment first to protect the pigment and keep the cuts clean and bacteria-free.

She recommends you use an antibacterial ointment on your brows for the first 24 hours and then a Vaseline-like ointment for a week. She also says no picking of any scabs that form from the tiny cuts, and avoid using any acids or retinoids while they heal, since they could fade the pigments.

The Final Word

Where can I get microblading?

To get your own semi-permanent brow look, book an appointment with Piret (I know, I know—but I had a good experience!) or, more realistically, research a brow tattoo specialist near you (FWIW, Piret also recommends UzBrows if you live near Los Angeles or Permanent Beauty by Monica if you live near New York City). Just keep in mind that Piret recommends doing your due diligence and looking into technicians’ past work to make sure their results are what you want.

That said, if you are still hesitant about microblading or don’t have a brow artist near you that you trust, Piret recommends two products: Kevyn Aucoin’s Precision Brow Pencil, which has a non-waxy fine point that helps you create hairlike strokes, and her own Eyebrow Doctor Brow Gel, which comes in clear, brunette, and blonde and offers a stiffer hold that keeps your hairs in place. These alternate options might not be permanent solutions, but hey, it’ll at least buy you some time to save up and prepare yourself for the real thing.
