Are you hesitating between these two techniques?

Do you want to learn more about microblading and microshading before taking action? Then this article is made for you.

There are many micropigmentation techniques. Among these, we find more particularly microblading and microshading .

Other techniques are also used, but these two are the most popular. In this article we explain to you what their differences are and which technique to choose.

For years, the codes of eye beauty have been reinvented and evolved. You probably know that eyebrows play a very important role in the beauty sector and more precisely in the beauty of the eyes.

More and more women are opting for different techniques to make their eyebrows perfect and exactly what they want.

However, eye beauty techniques are developing day by day, so it can be quite difficult to keep up with all the latest trends.

You've probably heard of eyebrow microblading , but do you know what it is?

Also, have you heard of the microshading technique?

Yes, they sound the same, but these two techniques are very different.

So, who wins the battle between eyebrow microblading and microshading , and which technique should you choose?

Let's take a look at it all:

1. What is microblading and microshading?

Microblading is becoming more and more popular and more and more beauty salons are specializing in this area, given the growing demand.

Before choosing your beauty salon to take the plunge, let us first explain in detail what eyebrow microblading is.

The eyebrow microblading service does not require any surgery, only lasts a few hours and remains completely painless. It requires the use of a tool that helps place the pigment into your skin.

This allows you to draw lines resembling hairs. The practitioner ensures that the pigment penetrates the skin of your eyebrows, leaving pretty lines that look like real hair.

This procedure is not painful. A good practitioner with good technique and well trained will perfectly know how to make the experience comfortable.

Choosing a good beauty salon is of utmost importance. A beauty salon who has mastered the art of microblading can work miracles with your eyebrows. On the contrary, those who do not master the technique can make them catastrophic.

To help you in your choice and avoid failed microblading , ask the beauty institute for photos of its work: Microblading before after, microshading before after, the evolution of microblading healing, check the opinions of its customers, etc...

Also, opt for a beauty diagnosis of your eyebrows before taking action.

For example, at Sobella Paris, we offer our clients a completely free beauty diagnosis before each procedure.

This allows us to present our work, study the skin tone and define the best technique to enhance the beauty of your eyes.

2. Microshading in a few words?

Although they are very similar in nature, eyebrow microshading is a little more different than microblading .

This technique, unlike microblading , does not draw hairs into your eyebrows to give the illusion of having hairs in addition to your natural hairs.

Microshading uses a dotted technique which gives your eyebrows a shaded and made-up effect for long-lasting, foolproof hold.

3. What is the difference between microblading and microshading?

The difference between these semi-permanent makeup techniques is because microshading uses a different tool.

  • Microshading creates a soft, ombre effect that resembles eyebrow powder. This is the look you can see in photos of many influencers and celebrities.
  • Microblading, for its part, allows you to draw natural-looking hairs, while microshading gives a made-up and powdered effect to your eyebrows.

Ultimately, your eyebrows will look fuller and thicker.

4. Who is microblading offered to?

Microblading has been widely chosen by thousands of women around the world.

Just take a look at your favorite shows and you will see dozens of celebrities who have opted for microblading.

It is simply aimed at all women (but also men). Especially for those who want to completely restructure the shape of their eyebrows.

If, for example, you have sparse or asymmetrical eyebrows and want to correct them, microblading is for you.

Remember, however, that the result will greatly depend on the type of your skin, the shape of your face, and the technique of the beauty salon that will take care of you.

5. Who is microshading offered to?

Microshading creates a different effect, so if you have certain empty areas in your eyebrows that you want to fill with an ombre and makeup effect, then you should opt for this technique.

You don't need to get microblading unless you are unhappy with the shape of your eyebrows.

Additionally, if your skin is somewhat sensitive or you have an oily T-zone and you don't have the courage to endure microblading , microshading will be a great option for you.

Keeping all this in mind, we can say that “ microshading is the little brother of microblading ”.

Many experts agree that if you suffer from sensitive or oily skin, this is the best procedure for you because it is more suitable for your skin type.

6. The killer combination!

However, why talk about microblading vs microshading when we can talk about the combination of the two?

We clearly recommend this solution, which is clearly the best option for having perfect eyebrows.

The ombre eyebrow effect is achieved with the combination of these two techniques and is currently very popular.

7. How long do they last?

Microblading and microshading last on average 1 year. That said, this too depends on the competence of the beauty salon and how you maintain your eyebrows after the service.

Of course, you will need a touch-up appointment after a month or so. At Sobella Paris, retouching is included in our price. 

8. Do these practices hurt?

One of the frequently asked questions is whether these procedures hurt. Every procedure or treatment that requires incisions in your skin should be a little painful.

The good news is that if your beauty salon is competent, it will be able to support you with the practice so that your session is not painful.

9. To summarize

Whatever technique you opt for, whether it is microblading or microshading , make sure you choose the right beauty salon.

It has to be certified and also take a look at the photos of the eyebrows they created. Since photos never lie, you will be able to see if they tend to create failed microbladings or failed microshadings and therefore form a better opinion.

Also, make sure that the latter offers a free diagnosis.

This will allow you to discuss all the possibilities available to you with the practitioner and to decide together which technique suits you best and which shape of eyebrows you want.

The practitioner will be happy to help you create the best result and enhance your look.
