What is Microblading

Microblading is for anyone who wants to enhance the look of their eyebrows.  Eyebrows frame your face and by making them perfectly placed and symmetrical they can truly open up your eyes and give you a more youthful appearance.  Microblading is a semi-permanent form of cosmetic tattooing.  It lasts 1-2 years on average depending on your skin type.  It does not go as deep into the skin as a traditional tattoo resulting in hairlike strokes close to the surface of the skin.  The results are a much more natural alternative to the traditional permanent cosmetic techniques.

What is Microshading

Microshading is a gentler version of microblading, the semi-permanent makeup technique for sparse, light colored or over-plucked brows.  Unlike microblading, MICROSHADING fills in thin brows with small dots rather than natural hair strokes, which is safer for sensitive or oily skin .
