Microblading | Stretch Mark Removal | Scar Lightening | Tattoo Lightening | Powder Brows
An experienced artist will notice oily skin right away. If you can see shine through the makeup, you know you have oily skin! If your makeup game is strong or if you have a little less shine than usual, the artist may not notice; so be sure to mention it anyway! IT WILL ABSOLUTELY AFFECT THE WORK.
First, understand that microblading is semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing, so the artist is placing pigment underneath the skin. Oily skin could make the pigment fade quicker and need more touchups. Oily skin could also cause the strokes to expand a little more than someone who doesn’t have oily skin. It’s ultimately the Microblading Artists’ discretion whether or not you're a good candidate for microblading.
I WANT MICROBLADING BUT I HAVE OILY SKIN, WHAT DO I DO?
HAVE NO FEAR, THE SOLUTION IS GORGEOUS AND NATURAL NANO SHADING OR COMBO BROWS!
SHADING VS. MICROBLADING, NANO POWDER BROWS, & OMBRE EYEBROWS
Shading is a relatively new technique that’s perfect for clients with oily skin.
Like microblading, it can be performed with a hand tool (not a machine), though it can also be gently completed with a machine. But unlike microblading, the artist recreates a powder or ombre look instead of individual hairstrokes.
If you have your heart set on hairstrokes, talk to us your about our microblading/shading combo. The artist will draw some hairstrokes, usually around the edges where they’re most visible, then add shading to the body of the brow, giving it a full look that retains a beautiful shape everyday. The results are are up to you and the artist to decide. It can vary from a soft romantic natural ombre, to a bolder more fearless brow. With Nano shading we have little restriction and can give you the brows you want to see everyday!
Ultimately, these techniques look amazing no matter your skin type—for many its personal preference. Many women fill in their brows daily, and a filled-in look is perfect for them, even if they don’t have oily skin.
Shading, powder brows, and ombre eyebrows are all viable options if you have an oily complexion—so do your research and talk to your artist!
