Powder Brows, Ombre Brows And Shadow Eyebrows

Powder brows, ombre brows and shadow brows. It’s a handful of terms that you often hear in an eyebrow salon these days. But what do they mean? 

Semi permanent make-up techniques

Powder brows, ombre brows and shadow eyebrows are techniques that fall under the semi-permanent make-up. Not every semi-permanent eyebrow is the same in terms of look. If you want to microblade or tattoo your eyebrows, you can choose a certain style. You can also opt for certain techniques with semi-permanent make-up, including the 3D eyebrow and the hairstroke technique, but also the ombre and powder technique. 

In contrast to the 3D eyebrows and the hairstrokes, the ombre and powder technique fills the entire eyebrow. The result is a gradient effect that will heal to a soft powdery finish for a soft, padded look. It therefore seems as if you are wearing make-up. 3D eyebrows and hairstrokes mimic an eyebrow that is as close to a natural eyebrow as possible. Below we will discuss the three techniques where it looks like you are wearing make-up.

Shading techniques

With the shadow technique method, the color pigment is subtly brushed into the skin over the entire eyebrow with the permanent make-up machine. This creates a shadow under the own eyebrow. It can also work from light to dark. This technique is now very popular.

Ombre technique

With the ombre technique you create a shadow. This one is darker at the end and lighter at the front. This gives you the effect where it looks like you have colored your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil.

At Microblading Tampa BayOmbre Eyebrows is the most requested technique.


The powder brows is very similar to the ombre brows. Both techniques are also extremely popular. With the powder brows, unlike the ombre technique, the shadow runs inwards from the end. With this technique it looks like you have colored your eyebrows with eyebrow powder.
