Difference Between Microblading, Powder Ombre, Combination and Blade and Shade

Updated: Apr 21, 2021



Microblading is a technique that uses blade like needles to deposit ink into the skin that mimics real hair. Its effect is a very natural fluff and is suitable for those wanting to achieve a natural, no makeup look.


Powder Ombre is done using a mechanical tattoo needle or a handheld tool. The result is a dot-like powdery look that mimics the effect of a brow powder.


Combination brow is a combined method of feathering and shading. The front end of the brows are feathered with the ends finished with a shaded touch, blending both sides seamlessly. Ideal for those with little to no brow hairs.


Blade and Shade will have Microblading on the entire brow with soft shading in required areas to create a bolder look. Combination and Blade and Shade both include Microblading and Powder Ombre.




A gradual transition from sparse brows --> Microblading--> Blade and Shade. Blade and Shade tends to look darker and bolder immediately after the procedure, but will heal into a much softer shade once fully healed. The result is natural fluffy brows that is vibrant, layered and has better retention and longevity.
