Ombre shading of the brows is a technique also known as microshading that consists of using a cosmetic tattoo machine that blends extremely fine pixels of pigment into the first layer of the skin. The technique can be customized to a soft - more natural look, or a medium to bold "makeup" look. Ombre brows tend to have a softer effect towards the front of the brow with a more defined look towards the end of the brow. The healed results of an ombre brow will appear "powdery" yet very natural.
