If you think of both Xtreme ombre and microblading as a kind of permanent makeup that enhances the appearance of your brows, then you are right. They both make waking up with gorgeous eyebrows a reality; the time you spend every morning filling your eyebrows can now be used for something else. This is the number one reason permanent or semi-permanent makeup of this sort is becoming more popular with the dawn of each new day.
Although both methods fall into the same cosmetic tattooing family, quite a number of factors differentiate both. And understanding the differences will help you choose the permanent makeup method that’s best for you. Here we go…
Xtreme Ombre Brow Sculpting
Opting for Xtreme ombre semi-permanent makeup means you want your brows to look powdered and take the form of a softly ‘filled-in’ makeup eyebrow. You get to wake up every day with eyebrows that look already carved and drawn with eye shadow or eyebrow pencil. The tattooing method used to achieve this look differs from the traditional type, in that it doesn’t go beyond the surface of the skin.
Here are some other key factors to note about Xtreme ombre brow sculpting:
Less traumatic to the skin: less bleeding is involved with omber brows because the powder is applied using an airbrush-like technique.
Lasts longer: Omber brows are known to last for about 12 to 24 months.
Perfect for most skin types: If you have oily or combination skin type, you can go for ombre brows.
Unlike Xtreme ombre, microblading implants pigment strokes beneath the skin to create many hair-like impressions that will give you fuller and natural looking brows. Microblading gives you a more defined and well-shaped brows that look makeup-free. It looks more realistic than Xtreme ombre brow sculpting because there’s absolutely no makeup effect. Other factors that differentiate it from Ombre powder include the following:
Shorter term: microblading doesn’t last as long as ombre sculpting; duration of 6-12 months is the typical length of time it lasts.
A bit painful: of course as the name sounds, a blading technique is used to apply small cuts into the skin to create hair strokes and that will bleed a little.
More selective of skin type: the effect of microblading may not turn out well on people with oily or combination skin type.
Should you go for Xtreme ombre or microblading?
All depends on your skin type, coloring and personal style in general. If you have oily/combination skin type, scanty brows or rarely use eyebrow shadow, then microblading is best for you. But if you regularly fill in your brows with shadow or pencil, go for ombre instead.
If done the right way, ombre brows shouldn’t look heavy or blocky and microbladed brows shouldn’t look tacky or unnatural. That’s why you should surrender your brows to only a professional team of specialists like Beiamed for a perfect permanent makeup look that you will love.
