Microblading + Microshading Combo Brows

Effect: Combination of microblading and shading (optional ombré effect)

Also called combination brows, the Blade + Shade Combo will give you denser, more defined brows with a hint of makeup. Still natural-looking, this style starts with feathered hair strokes then transitions to a powder finish toward the tails. This gives your brows added definition that is not so prominent in microbladed brows. This is great for those who are not a good candidate for microblading alone and those who qualify for both but can’t decide between the two. An optional ombré effect can be added on top of the blade + shade combo treatment.

Recommended for:

  • All skin types
  • Both sparse and dense brows
  • Want both the microblading and microshading styles

How is the Blade + Shade Combo Brow Treatment Done?

As it is a combination of both microblading and shading, the Blade + Shade Combo treatment uses both the micro blade hand tool and any of the microshading tools or machines. If you look closely, you will see that combination brows start off with hair-like strokes. This is done using the classic microblading manual technique. From middle to the end, a combination of methods will be used. Since it has the added shading effect, the results appear to have a hint of makeup.

How Does The Blade + Shade Combo Work?

During your appointment, your Microbladers Artist will apply the microblading and the microshading treatments. Together, you will determine the best look to complement your natural brow shape and facial features. Your Artist will apply a numbing cream to the enhancement area prior to the start of your enhancement. During this time, you and your Artist will find the perfect color from our all-natural palette that is perfect for your eyebrows.

Then, your Artist will use a manual shading to render your natural-looking brow in the shape, style, and color you both determined together. Your appointment will use only new, disposable tools. The appointment may require 2 to 6 passes of color followed by moments of pigment baths. During a pigment bath, the color you and your artist chose is used to saturate the enhancement area and will begin to absorb into the newly crafted brow structure that has already been applied.

What Does Microshading Feel Like?

Everyone experiences pain differently based on personal tolerance levels. However, the majority of clients only have slight discomfort as if they were experiencing an eyebrow tweezing or waxing appointment.

MicroBladers uses a topical anesthetic to help ease any discomfort that you may have during your treatment. Additionally, a secondary numbing topical anesthetic may be used if the client feels any discomfort during the treatment.

How Long Does The Blade + Shade Combo Last?

It depends on each individual, but it is recommended that clients receive touch ups every 3 to 6 months. This allows your MicroBladers Artist to check in with you and determine your unique and individual needs.

How Do I Choose Between Microshading, Microblading, Ombre and Powder Brows?

Individuals who may be prone to oily or extra oily skin should consider microshading, which will be much more suited for longer lasting brows on this particular skin type. It will also vary as to the look you are hoping to achieve. Work with your MicroBladers Artist by providing images and discussing your ideal look during your free consultation.

How Long Does The Blade + Shade Combo Enhancement Take?

Depending on your consultation, the average appointment can last 3 to 4.5 hours. However, some appointments may take less time while others take slightly longer. Microshading is a completely custom experience so variations occur based on each individual.

Don’t book any appointments right after the procedure as your eyebrows may be red and it’s absolutely necessary to avoid rushing this procedure. Work with your MicroBladers Artist to determine a more precise and individual estimate on the length of your appointment.

How Long Does This Take To Heal?

Every individual is unique. On average, clients see that full healing occurs between 6 to 8 weeks. The eyebrow area will show signs of flaking, peeling and itching, which are all perfectly normal with the healing process. Just follow the aftercare instructions your MicroBladers Artist provided in order to maximize the healing process.

Can Microshading & Microblading Damage My Skin?

A potential for scarring is greater if you choose a poorly trained microshading artist. At MicroBladers, we ensure that all of our Artists are not only thoroughly trained and certified, but that they have had a minimum 6-month apprenticeship with a Master Level Artist.

Who Shouldn’t Get Microblading & Microshading?

Our team of Artists considers your health the most important requirement, which is why we recommend those with the following conditions speak with a medical professional prior to booking a consultation:

  • Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Those 18 years of age and under
  • Individuals with serious illnesses such as autoimmune disorder, diabetes, epilepsy, cancer, major heart conditions, organ transplants, viral infections, skin infections or facial psoriasis
  • Anyone who has taken Accutane within the last year should avoid this procedure

If you aren’t sure whether you are able to get the procedure or not, consult with a physician first and then discuss with your Artist during the consultation your health concerns.

Individuals who may be prone to oily or extra oily skin should consider a different treatment, such as microshading, which will be much more suited for longer lasting brows on oily skin.
