This one-day course is designed for technicians previously trained in Microblading who want to expand their skills and are looking for more hands-on experience. You will use hands on practical experience to create a shaded brow in either a “makeup look” or a very soft and natural shading using both the manual and machine techniques. This course is designed for current microblading artists wanting to expand their techniques and business to generate more income. This is not an introductory training.
The Powder Brow Course introduces you to brow shading techniques using a process that creates a pixeled powder look through depositing small dots of pigment into the skin. This course will also cover the Combo Brow/Hybrid Method including a combination of strokes and shading depending on the needs of your client’s brows and how to assess which method is best for each client.
This course includes theory as well as ample hands on experience with various practice mediums such as fake heads and skin as well as on a live model. Each attendee will learn the foundation and principles of Powder Brow to ensure a solid understanding.
What is the difference between microblading and powder brow?
While microblading is strokes/lines, powder brow is made up of pixilated dotting that creates a shading effect. This is good for any type of skin such as oily, aged, or porous skin. The results from this procedure can vary with some results being very natural and others more heavily saturated for those seeking a bolder look. Powder brow technique is NOT older style block tattooing! It is much more natural and generally looks good on anyone.
