Frequently Asked Questions
The two procedures are similar however they differ in technique, tools and end result.
Powder brow is done with a semi-permanent machine used to deposit pigment into your skin with a dotting and shading technique creating more of a soft “makeup look.” Without touchup, the end results last up to 2-3 years and will vary by age, skin care and other factors like exposure to sun. This technique is ideal for all skin types.
Microblading uses a manual tool similar to a small blade to deposit the pigment into your skin to create natural hairstrokes. The final look is more hair strokes and “fluffier” brow. This technique is not suitable for all skin types and should only be performed on clients with normal to dry skin. Without touch up, these will last up to 18 months.
Powder and Microblading costs roughly the same and healing time is the same.

Permanent makeup is a two-step process. Touch ups are scheduled 6-8 weeks after your initial appointment and it is to color correct, if needed and touch up areas after you are healed. This appointment is typically 90 mins depending on your healed results. Touch ups are $105.
I recommend booking this appointment when your brows are 60% faded.
On average, they last 2-3 years. They will vary depending on after care immediately following appointment, your age, your skin care products and how much exposure you have to sun. We recommend applying sunscreen to your brows to prevent UV rays from fading out your brows.
Step 1: Consultation – We review your brow goals together and this is a time where you can show me brow shapes you like along with showing me how you normally shade them in. Consultation is a part of all appointments. If you would like to book separately, that is also an option.
Step 2: Shape – I will start by measuring key points on your face to create a shape that is as close to symmetry as possible. Ill draw the brow shapes with a pencil designed for skin following your natural brow hair and orbital ridge. Once you approve, we will move on to the next step.
Step 3: Color Selection – Together, we will select a color that is closest to your natural brow hair and one that will heal best.
Step 4: Treatment will start – I will use a sterile needle and machine along with disposal materials to create brow magic! Ill apply topical numbing before I start shading your brows. A secondary numbing will be applied to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible. Once I’ve completed the shading process, I will go over after care with you, book your touch up and send you home with an aftercare goody bag.
