(Ombre Powder Brows)
Powder brows (also known as ombre brows or ombre powder brows) are a semi-permanent eyebrow styling technique that closely mimics the appearance of conventional brow makeup.
Beautiful eyebrows that last up to 3 years and fit perfectly to the shape of your face are no longer a myth!
Ombre powder brows are a great semi-permanent makeup technique if you want to achieve the natural look of your eyebrows.
Powder brows create:
a softly shaded brow pencil look,
more “filled-in” look,
results that appear like softly shaded eyebrow pencil or powder.

Ideal Candidates For Powder Brows
This cosmetic semi-permanent makeup procedure is great for any skin type, but it is especially suitable for:
women with oily skin type (the pigment lasts longer, therefore it won’t fade as quickly as when you do microblading)
women with a combination skin type
those who fill in their brows daily with makeup (shadow or pencil)
athletes and those who play sports or like to be active
those who desire to fill in sparse eyebrows (eyebrow hair thinning)
How Are Powder Brows Done?
The initial step is to determine the perfect shape of your eyebrows. Our eyebrow artist will then outline a new shape of your eyebrows. Attention is paid specifically to symmetry and creating eyebrows that fit perfectly the shape of your face.
After this, it is finally time to place pigment. When choosing a pigment, it is important to take into consideration your skin tone, the color of your hair as well as your personal preferences.
Unlike eyebrow tattooing or microblading which are done in the dermis (the second – deeper layer of the skin), powder brows at our plastic surgery center in New York are done in the epidermis (the top layer of the skin).
A special machine is used to place pigment into the top layers of the skin, thus creating a soft and natural result without irritating the skin. The combination of dots and shading produces a 3D illusion with a subtle, natural-looking effect.
Powder Brows Healing Process
Swelling of the brow area, soreness, and subtle redness are common on the day of the powder brows treatment.
Furthermore, your eyebrows are going to be around 50% darker, but do not worry – during the complete healing process, they eventually will fade and start getting their color.
If you feel that the skin around the eyebrows is itchy or dry in the first week after the treatment, this is a common side effect. If this feeling continues, we will provide you with a balm to help reduce itchiness and dryness.
Dos and Don’ts After Ombre Powder Brows Treatment
Aftercare is important! It will take up to 2-3 weeks for your eyebrows to heal, and during that time you should pay attention to certain dos and don’ts if you want to achieve full results out of this treatment:
do not pick or touch eyebrows as it could harm the color and improve the chance of infection.
do not apply makeup
try not to sleep directly on your face
avoid exercise, sweating and
do not go to saunas, steam rooms, or in the water (pools, etc…)
pay attention to sun exposure
refrain from other kinds of facial treatments during the powder brows healing process
These things, on the other hand, could help your healing process:
let the dry skin around the eyebrows drop out by itself
maintain the eyebrow area as sanitary as possible
cover your eyebrows from dust and dirt
