If you’ve done any sort of research while considering microblading or ombre treatments, you have found that microblading is not recommended for every type of skin. Extremely oily skin, psoriasis, eczema, & dermatitis prone skin are just a few of the types I do not recommend for a microblading treatment. In fact, you can find exactly that on my F.A.Q page as well as other great bits of information. However, if you have oily skin don’t give up on beautiful, natural, & full brows just yet.

“Why isn’t microblading okay for my extra oily skin?”

With oily skin as common as it is, I often get asked why microblading doesn’t work for that specific skin type. Simply put, very oily skin heals differently. When the glands in the skin produce an above average amount of oil, it in turn effects the healing of the pigmented strokes of microblading, giving the end result a much less longer lasting and refined effect. All that fine and delicate work your microblading artist created is then blurred and fades much, much quicker.

“So now what?”

Instead of microblading, consider ombré to achieve those perfect, low maintenance brows that don’t require extra minutes in the mirror and tons of filler. An ombré treatment is a great alternative to microblading and so many of my clients have completely fallen in love with their ombré look.  Ombré brows gives a softer, power filled effect that graduations from a softer color on the inside of the brow to a darker shade towards the outside of the brow.

Ombré vs. Microblading

Ombre Brows

Once you’ve looked over the results of microblading vs. the ombre technique, the difference is clear to see. I have gone into even deeper detail before about microblading for eyebrows & the ombre comparisons. The former, fine, natural hair strokes verses a softer, graduating shade. Check out my Instagram page and you’ll begin to see a definitive difference between the two. One of the benefits of the ombré technique to consider is it’s amazing versatility.   Ombré offers a softer, brow penciled aesthetic with beautiful definition. As well, it can be bold and dramatic. Both ombré and microblading techniques are lovely and truly up to personal style and preference which we cover at length during your consultation.
