Why Powder Brows Are A Popular Semi-Permanent Makeup Trend

When it comes to permanent and semi-permanent makeup, you’ve probably heard of powder brows. This semi-permanent makeup technique is used to create fuller, more beautiful eyebrows. That’s why unDONE Salon would like to provide you with the following reasons powder brows are a popular semi-permanent makeup trend.

What Are Powder Brows?

Powder brows are a semi-permanent makeup technique that creates a soft shaded pencil brow look. First developed in Asia, powder brows have grown in popularity throughout the U.S as the method has been improved and perfected. Why? It creates wonderful definition and adds depth to your eyebrows without the need to apply makeup every day. It is particularly good for those with oily to combination skin or anyone tired of filling in their eyebrows regularly with makeup.

Powder Brows Vs. Microblading

The biggest difference between powder brows and microblading is how pigment is deposited into the skin. Microblading is done by using a small sharp tool that applies small cuts into the skin that are repeated into the same spots. On the other hand, powder brows are applied using a handheld wand that disperses extremely fine pigment into and across your skin using an airbrush-shading technique.

Do Powder Brows Hurt?

Everyone’s pain threshold is different. However, powder brows are much less invasive than microblading because there’s minimal pain or bleeding during the procedure. In fact, most of our clients at unDONE report that the procedure feels more like an electric toothbrush being pressed against their skin or rapid tweezing.

How Long Powder Brows Last

Powder brows can last anywhere from 2-5 years, depending on a person’s skin type and individual lifestyle. After a professional touch-up 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment, you will only need to have your eyebrows touched up once a year. Microblading, however, often requires more frequent touch-ups, resulting in long-term wear and tear to the skin, which can cause permanent scarring. That’s why it’s important to choose the less invasive method of powder brows to save your skin’s integrity.

The Main Benefits of Powder Brows?

  • Powder brows are suitable for most skin types.
  • You’ll get fuller, more defined-looking eyebrows.
  • Powder brows last longer than other semi-permanent makeup techniques.
  • Powder brows are less invasive and less painful vs. microblading.

Who Shouldn’t Get Powder Brows?

Powder brows should be avoided or considered by a doctor if you have any of the following pre-existing health conditions:

  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy or autoimmune disorders
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Viral infections
  • Skin irritations
  • Vitiligo
  • Heart problems
  • Pregnancy
  • High blood pressure

Powder Brows After-Care

You will be sent home with a list of after-care instructions following a powder brow treatment. It’s also important to avoid the following for at least 1-2 weeks after treatment:

  • Excessive sweating (working out)
  • Makeup around the brows
  • Heavy sun exposure
  • Facial treatments
  • Long, hot showers
  • Overwashing your face

Top Reasons To Get Powder Brows

Have you been considering the semi-permanent makeup solution of powder brows but are still on the fence? While there are always reasons not to do something, you can drive yourself crazy, weighing the pros and cons. That’s why unDONE Salon would like to help you make the best decision by providing you with the top five reasons you should get powder brows!

Your Lifestyle

Maybe you love working out but are sick of looking like your eyebrows are running off your face. Or perhaps your eyebrows are thinner than you’d like them to be. Either way, we all want to look our best – that’s why we wear makeup! However, if you live an active lifestyle, the last thing you have time for is worrying about your eyebrows 24/7. That’s what makes powder brows so amazing. As a semi-permanent makeup solution, you won’t have to worry about your makeup rubbing or melting off, and you won’t have to draw and fill in your eyebrows every day!

You Overplucked

If you grew up in the 90s, you can probably relate to this problem. Millennials today don’t follow the same razor-thin trends we did to look like Gwen Stefani, Pam Anderson, or the Spice Girls. If you over-plucked your eyebrows in your youth, we now have solutions to fix the mistakes of the past. If you are tired of drawing and filling in your eyebrows because they never grew back, powder brows are an excellent option to consider. At unDONE, our trained and certified brow expert can help you create natural-looking eyebrows that complement and balance your features.

Appear More Youthful

EVERYONE looks better with fuller eyebrows. When we reminisce of how we looked in the past, it’s usually a thinner body frame and a fuller browed face. The older we get, the more weight we put on, and our hair naturally starts to thin. When done correctly (following your natural facial structure) powder brows will instantly make you look younger, because you’ll have fuller eyebrows!

A Non-Surgical Eye Lift

Powder brows not only help you look youthful but will make you look more awake, alert, and refreshed without invasive surgery! Like we mentioned above, our trained and certified brow expert can help you create natural-looking eyebrows that accentuate your eyes and balance your features without a surgical eye lift!

Time-Saving Convenience

At unDONE, we’re sure you’re super busy throughout the day, just like us. And once time is gone, it’s gone for good. That’s why, in our opinion, anything you can do to save time is definitely worth it. If you find yourself spending too much time doing your makeup every day or if you struggle trying to draw balanced, symmetrical eyebrows, powder brows are an excellent option to save time and your sanity.

Reasons To Love Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup provides women in the Treasure Valley with a softer, more natural look than regular makeup. The best part? It eliminates the everyday hassle of applying eyeliner or drawing on your eyebrows and filling them in. Even more, you’ll never have to worry about smearing your makeup if you cry, rub your eyes, or go swimming.

Permanent makeup is also great for those who can’t wear regular makeup due to cosmetic sensitivity and itchy, watery eyes. Additionally, it’s great for those with poor vision or an unsteady hand, which makes the application of regular makeup difficult.

That’s why unDONE Salon would like to talk about permanent makeup in today’s blog post and provide you with the following reasons to love it.

Powder Brows

Not only do your eyebrows frame your face, but they also make your appearance distinct. While there are plenty of people out there that are born with a beautiful set of symmetrical brows, many of us struggle with sparse, uneven brows due to years of fluctuating beauty trends resulting in overplucking and overwaxing. This, in turn, creates the everyday hassle of drawing on and filling in our eyebrows. Not only is it time-consuming and frustrating, you have to worry about fading or rubbing off. Who wants to deal with that? With semi-permanent powder brows, you’ll never have to worry about doing your eyebrows again. Not only does it eliminate the daily struggle, but you also won’t have to worry about them coming off while exercising or swimming. Life-changing!

Eyebrows make a huge difference in the way you look and feel. At unDONE, our powder brow treatments are one of the favorite services we provide due to the reactions we get from our clients. It makes us feel so good to see the look of happiness when you look in the mirror and see the results after your procedure. It’s incredibly rewarding and heartwarming to be able to help others and is part of the reason we love what we do!

Permanent Eyeliner

Eyeliner opens your eyes, making them pop while boosting your self-confidence in the process. Aside from having to apply eyeliner every day, imagine it never smudging and smearing. Even more, washing and wiping it off every night can be especially damaging to the sensitive skin around your eyes, causing premature wrinkles in the process. Saying goodbye to raccoon eyes is one of our favorite reasons we do this procedure for our clients!

Furthermore, applying eyeliner requires a steady hand and a close attention to detail. If you can’t hold your eyeliner still enough to outline your eye, you won’t have to worry about this problem ever again with permanent eyeliner!

Keep in mind that permanent eyeliner isn’t meant to be dramatic. Instead, this procedure is intended to enhance the natural beauty of your eyes and provide you with an everyday look for work, play, and leisure that can be expanded on with regular eyeliner and additional makeup like eyeshadow and mascara.

Everything You Want To Know About Powder Brows

It can be a living struggle to deal with your eyebrows every day. This is especially true for those who have to get up extra early just to draw and fill them in.

Well, if you’re looking for a better way to maintain your eyebrows, unDONE Salon offers the ultimate cosmetic solution to make life simple again. That’s why we’d like to provide you with everything you want to know about powder brows.

The Difference Between Microblading & Powder Brows

At unDONE Salon, we get asked this question a lot, so here goes:

Microblading

As somewhat of an invasive procedure, microblading is the process of tattooing natural hair strokes onto your eyebrows. This includes the beginning, arch, and tail. This form of permanent makeup is done manually and with a tool called a microblader that consists of a blade formed of tiny needles that cut hair like strokes into the skin much like a paper cut. Once this process is complete, a medical-grade pigment is applied to seep into the small, open wounds.

Powder Brows

Powder brows, on the other hand, are achieved using an electric pen with a small needle at the end that isn’t as sharp or pointy as a microblading tool. A trained and certified expert will then use this tool to puncture the skin lightly to deposit medical-grade color on top of your natural brow shape to provide you with an even and equal look. The best part? Powder brows provide you with a natural, more subtle look that just about everyone will love.

Who’s A Good Candidate For Powder Brows?

If you have grown tired of drawing and filling in your eyebrows, you are going to love the powder brow solution. It’s the best treatment option for those who have some hair, yet need more color and depth for a fuller effect. Even better, everyone is a potential candidate for powder brows because they don’t hurt as much as brows that are microbladed and can last up to 2-4 years.

How Much Do Powder Brows Cost?

At unDONE Salon, the initial powder brow service costs around $325. This includes a personalized consultation, treatment, and professional touch up 4-6 weeks later. The process takes approximately 2 ½ hours from start to finish. After that you will need to get regular touch-ups only once a year for $75.

Powder Brows Aftercare

The powder brow procedure isn’t as painful as microblading. Even more,a trained and certified expert will apply a topical anesthetic to alleviate any discomfort during the process. After the treatment, your brows will look much darker and fuller than normal. Rest assure, however, that your brows will fade to a softer, more natural color after 7-10 days.

Even more, you will be sent home with a list of after care instructions along with a specialized cleanser and protective oil to be used on your eyebrows twice a day starting the same evening as the procedure.

  • You receive a long-lasting solution.
  • You get a natural, subtle look without the work.
  • It’s suitable for just about anyone.
