Understanding the Different Types of Pigments and Techniques Used in Eyebrow Embroidery

Eyebrow embroidery can seem like an uncomplicated process, especially when you compare the length of each session to other highly technical beauty procedures. However, the ink, tools and techniques that go into it make it an enterprise that must only be taken on by those who have complete mastery and up-to-the-minute understanding of the craft, such as eyebrow artists and beauty technicians. As consumers, it is also critical to exercise awareness prior to committing oneself to eyebrow embroidery or microblading procedures. This is to safeguard yourself from any mishaps that can stem from allergic reactions, unmet expectations or even personal preferences. Here, we round up some pointers that you might want to take note of before you get your brows fixed!

What’s In A Pigment?

Eyebrow embroidery pigments are formulated with the aim to be vivid and enduring, and this often results in a long list of ingredients that can differ with each manufacturer. Some main components that can be identified in many microblading inks include iron oxides, glycerin, ethanol, distilled water, propylene glycol and isopropyl alcohol, each of them bringing to the table specific functionalities to help achieve better eyebrow embroidery outcomes.

Glycerin, for example, helps with the smooth application of the pigment during the procedure by increasing liquidity and moisture retention. Isopropyl alcohol, on the other hand, doubles as a disinfectant and assists in the drying of the ink after it has been applied.

Most microblading inks would also contain other additives that contribute to the consistency, durability and performance of the pigment as regulated by the brand or manufacturer. All these ingredients can be split into colourants and carriers, terms used to describe the chemicals that provide the colour to the pigment, and those that help the colour apply effectively. 

Organic vs Inorganic Pigments

There are, moreover, two definite categories of microblading pigments that can heavily determine the result and aftereffects of the procedure. They are organic pigments and inorganic pigments, inks divided based on their origin and farming techniques, as well as their positives and negatives. 

Organic pigments are sourced from natural materials, like your fruits, vegetables and minerals. They usually are of botanical origin and boast realistic results as compared to inorganic pigments. They are also known to be environmentally friendly for being more biodegradable, but are harder to find on the market.

Conversely, inorganic pigments are dubbed as “synthetic” and are borne by lab-produced chemical processes, specifically by adding iron oxide to other substances. These inks offer a wider variety of colours to suit individuals and more resistance to everyday fading. They are also more solid in colour and impervious to sun damage, although some individuals may be more sensitive to them compared to organic formulations.

Weighing the pros and cons of organic and inorganic pigments can influence an individual’s decision-making when it comes to selecting the right studio, as some may prioritise natural-looking brows while others may look for more permanence in their results. As such, it is best for eyebrow artists to establish a foundational understanding of what goes into the ink and the potential effects of its usage with its consumers. It is also important to ensure that the ink used is of high quality, as inferior formulations have been observed to develop unnatural colour changes due to oxidation, among other ramifications.


The blade used to recreate the thin hair strokes on your eyebrows is not any regular blade. Rather, it is a blade comprising many needle-like pins to lightly scratch and leave pigment under the surface of your skin. Just like the cutting tools we use in our daily lives, these blades vary in size, shape, flexibility, and distinctively, the number of pins. To nail the most realistic results and successfully blend in with the rest of the individual’s brows, the size of the blade must be as close to the individual’s hair density as possible.

While the sizing of the blade is largely reliant on the thickness of each hair strand, it also ties in with the ideals and preferences of the individual. For instance, a smaller blade would allow the eyebrow artist to fit in more strokes, creating the illusion of thicker brows.

These blade configurations exist in U and Slant shapes that are designed not only for the comfort of the eyebrow artist, but also allow the artist to draw and mimic the hair strokes with ease and fluidity. Some artists may prefer the U blade as it offers flexibility in the direction it is used, making it a good tool for curved strokes; whereas the Slant blade easily puts all pins in contact with the skin and thus, is favoured for emulating straight hairs or by beginners. However, this does not apply to all scenarios, and each artist may have their own personalised techniques to help you achieve your desired brow appearance.


Each eyebrow embroidery technique comes with a set of unique characteristics that make it different from the others. It is from the motion, amount of pressure and overall control of the handheld tool that brings forth the shape, thickness and compactness one can find in a set of eyebrows. There are some styles that require shading or powder filling on top of the usual tool.

Certain attributes on our facial features can work to flatter specific face shapes, and our eyebrows are no exception. For that reason, it is recommended that you discuss with your eyebrow artist to explore the possible shapes, shades and sizes before committing to one that complements your features best. Some may find that combination brows, for example, can help bring definition to their face without going over the top. You may also want to consider factors like skin type here, as methods like the soft tap technique can provide a soft and subtle look for those with sensitive skin. Others may find more comfort in sporting a style more timeless, such as a pair of ombre brows that show off a nice gradient effect that starts light and ends dark.

Tools Matter, and Skills Do Too

If our article has validated anything so far, it is that the tools play a huge role in determining the appearance, health and longevity of your eyebrows. But as some have said, “A skilled worker will make efficient use of any tool, while an unskilled worker will struggle even with the best tools” – a quote that implies above all, it is a person’s (or in this case, an eyebrow artist’s) knowledge, prowess and experience that propels them towards great results.

Tweezing, trimming, mapping and filling in. These are steps some of us drearily follow every morning, just so we can achieve a pair of brows that bring some definition to our face. Sometimes, they don’t even come out the way we want them to. One higher than the other. Another darker than the other. Or worse still, both in completely different styles. If only we could wake up with perfectly groomed eyebrows without the hassle of our methodical brow routine… Well, could we?

What is Eyebrow Embroidery?

The Science of Eyebrow Embroidery: How It Works and Why It Lasts

Enter eyebrow embroidery, or microblading, a semi-permanent fix to perfectly drawn eyebrows. Somewhere in between eyebrow tattooing and eyebrow tinting, results from this procedure last for about one to two years with proper care and maintenance. Depending on the kind of brow style you want to go for, microblading can help you achieve full and natural-looking, well-defined brows without the application of makeup and other cosmetic products. 

How is Eyebrow Embroidery Done?

Being very delicate, intricate work, eyebrow embroidery requires the expertise of a professional and experienced eyebrow artist and cannot be attempted by yourself at home. The procedure usually covers three stages over one to two hours. The artist begins by shaping your eyebrows according to your preferred look, then, he/she will apply numbing cream before commencing the microblading process. This involves implanting pigment by lightly penetrating the skin with a blade consisting of tiny needles to create realistic and fine hair-like strokes resembling the short hairs of an eyebrow. The process is typically painless if not only accompanied by mild discomfort similar to getting an ant bite.

Why Eyebrow Embroidery?

The Science of Eyebrow Embroidery: How It Works and Why It Lasts

Eyebrow embroidery is a hot favourite among people for many reasons. Compared to eyebrow tinting, microblading offers a solution that lasts longer without the need to constantly retouch every four to six weeks. On the other hand, it doesn’t last as long as eyebrow tattoos, which usually stay for a lifetime and pose as a weighty and daunting decision to make. Because eyebrow tattoos can develop a blue or greenish tint over time, many also see it a less ideal candidate when considering permanent makeup options.

It is helpful to keep in mind that eyebrow embroidery or microblading results are also heavily dependent on a person’s genetics and lifestyle choices. As the ink is embedded directly beneath the surface of the skin, skin regeneration can affect how fast the pigment is broken down and thus, how long the skin can retain the colour. Simultaneously, individuals who have gone for microblading treatments are also advised to pay careful attention to the upkeep of their newly made brows to keep them looking good for an extended period of time. Taking into account all of the above, the fact still remains that microblading is running at the forefront of permanent makeup alternatives, and is much more widely chosen than its counterparts in recent years.

Who Can Do Eyebrow Embroidery?

Despite eyebrow embroidery being highly safe and relatively painless, further consultation and assessment may be necessary for some individuals with pre-existing conditions or circumstances. For instance, women who are pregnant or nursing are generally advised against going for microblading as hormonal changes during this time can affect the healing process, leading to unsatisfactory results. There is also the risk of passing on the infection to the child, should a microblading-related infection occur when the individual is nursing.

People with skin sensitivities need also be mindful of the effects that entail microblading. As conditions such as eczema and psoriasis may cause the skin to heal differently, this may give rise to complications and suboptimal outcomes that can influence their appearance. Others with allergies to chemicals that may be present in microblading procedures, have certain health conditions, or have recently gone through surgery may also seek advice and clearance from healthcare professionals and trained eyebrow artists to find out if they are fit for eyebrow embroidery. 

When Can I Do Eyebrow Embroidery?

The Science of Eyebrow Embroidery: How It Works and Why It Lasts

Apart from being in tune with your body and knowing if you are in the right health to cosmetically enhance your brows, it helps to plan ahead for your microblading appointment by taking into consideration future events and convenience. The general timeline indicates that the treatment itself should last between one to two hours, before a recovery period of four to six weeks for the result to be set in stone (or rather, skin). Assuming that the eyebrows match up to your expectations, and that you devote the right amount of care into maintaining them, this effect should last from anywhere between eighteen (1.5 years) to thirty months (2.5 years). As such, it may be helpful to chart out important occasions such as weddings, travels, and even other medical procedures, such that neither of the treatments, events, or your recovery clash at any juncture and come in the way of each other. 

Where Can I Do Eyebrow Embroidery?

There are numerous places one can engage in eyebrow embroidery in Singapore, and while most are situated in malls and the city, some have taken to setting up shop in heartland areas where they are most accessible to people everyday – just like us. At BrowSugar, you can find reliable and masterful eyebrow artists who can guide you towards a safe and relaxed journey towards beautifully realistic eyebrows, whether you’re in for linear, short, arched, tapered or others.

Post-Microblading and Eyebrow Embroidery: 6 Things You Must Know

Eyebrow embroidery, often interchangeable with microblading these days, is a cosmetic procedure that can help you attain great eyebrows with a precise process that involves lightly scratching your skin with a blade studded with small, disposable needles. Inserting pigment into these tiny incisions creates the illusion of fine and realistic hairstrokes, and can be shaped to any style or thickness of your choice. While sparse and patchy eyebrows can be a thing of the past with the help of an experienced eyebrow artist, proper care and maintenance is needed to ensure the longevity of your eyebrows. In this article, we delve into the essential tips for your post-microblading phase – the foundation of which may determine if your eyebrows can proudly cross the one year mark.


Before we get into the details, it’s important to keep our expectations clear and acknowledge that microblading often lasts between one to two years. This can save you the fuss of drawing your brows semi-permanently, which is more permanent than having to wipe them away each night to draw them again the next morning; and at the same time, not long enough to have your eyebrows fall out of fashion with the rise and fall of distinct brow trends. Here’s a quick flashback with some well-acquainted eyebrow imagery: full and au naturel, plucked bare and super thin, bold and arched Western brows, linear and light Korean brows.

Do also keep in mind that the brows will look their darkest after the session before growing lighter again. This can be accompanied by some tenderisation and swelling, as well as scabbing. While this should take place for only approximately, the straightforward procedure usually also entails one extra touchup session to fill in any remaining gaps.

1. Cleanliness is Key

Post-Microblading and Eyebrow Embroidery: 6 Things You Must Know

As with any superficial injury, microbladed or eyebrow embroidered spots require a level of cleanliness to reduce the risks of infection or effects of inflammation. To wash, lightly rinse your brows with water and a mild antibacterial soap, careful not to use any forceful motions like rubbing that can damage the skin. Avoid harsh cleansing solutions that may also cause irritation and accelerate fading, such as ones containing exfoliants and acids. Always remember to pat dry after cleansing and before moisturising with a gentle fragrance-free lotion.

In order to maintain the hygiene surrounding the skin of your eyebrows, be mindful of easily neglected factors such as your eyebrows coming into contact with objects or even other parts of your body. If you have hair with a tendency to fall over your eyebrows, this might be a good time to clip them up and away from your face. You may also wish to change your pillowcase to a fresh one to ensure its cleanliness, or to go the extra mile, use a neck pillow to avoid any pressure or contact with the area.

2. Stay Away Rain and Shine

Eyebrow embroidery may be touted as not requiring any downtime, but several activities are best exempted from to ensure the condition of your eyebrows. This includes sports and strenuous exercises that can lead to perspiration, as well as activities like swimming, visiting the sauna, or even getting under the sun. Not only does moisture have the ability to remove the ink from the microblading, salt, too, plays a part when it comes to fading the results. In fact, saltwater is a natural method to break down the pigment from the procedure for those who wish to remove their embroidered brows.

It would almost feel like the elements are conspiring against you, once you learn that the sun also does more harm than good to your eyebrows. Sun exposure is said to affect the retention of pigment, so it goes without saying that tanning should be completely avoided as well. The good news is that all these activities can be resumed once your eyebrows have completely healed, which typically should only take about one month.

3. No Treatments or Makeup

Post-Microblading and Eyebrow Embroidery: 6 Things You Must Know

We have touched briefly on how acids and exfoliates can strip your skin of the ability to heal smoothly earlier, but there may be a couple more things to steer clear of for a speedy recovery to flawless eyebrows. Throughout the length of your post-microblading healing, it is best to postpone any appointments you have with your aesthetician for facials, dermal fillers and skin treatments. On your own, you may also want to put off applying makeup, or engaging in any bleaching, tinting and dyeing of your brows, as this could open the gateway to infections if not properly done. Furthermore, particles from these procedures that are deposited into your skin can impair its capacity to seal the pigment, leaving a less than optimal result from your microblading session. 

4. Hands Off

Be mentally prepared, as there may come a time when you have to fight with great fortitude the urge to scratch and pick at your new eyebrows. Due to the nature of the treatment, which calls for making minor incisions in your skin replicated as hair-like strokes, you will be left with the surface of your skin raw and sensitive much like a wound. The reparation of this damage can be itchy – leading to crusting, flaking or even peeling – but also indicates as a telltale sign that healing is in progress

Your first instinct would be to scratch but repressing this very basal urge begets results that aren’t just skin deep. Besides patchy results or scarring that might arise from fiddling with the wound, the bigger fear lies in infection, which could advance to increasingly problematic complications that affect other parts of your body. As such, it would be in your best interest to leave your eyebrows the way they are as they shed the layers naturally. Just sit back and watch them unveil the masterpiece you’ve paid and waited for.

5. Smoke Less, Drink More

Post-Microblading and Eyebrow Embroidery: 6 Things You Must Know

Multiple sources advise against smoking after eyebrow embroidery procedures as substances in both regular and electronic cigarettes can come in the way of your recovery. According to the World Health Organisation, smoking not only disrupts wound healing, but also compromises your immune system, making you more susceptible to infections. Smokers are therefore recommended to put off smoking for at least a week following microblading to allow recovery to take place fully and effectively. 

Conversely, keeping hydrated has been proven to speed up wound healing. Drink more water after your procedure, or even up to one day before for your body to support the quick and ready transportation of necessary nutrients to the recovering area. 

6. Listen to Your Brow Artist

While searching for answers online is the most convenient way to help you navigate the road to recovery, it’s not always the best – because if there’s anybody who understands the ins and outs of the craft most, it’s your brow tech. Whether it’s questions regarding microblading aftercare, or tips and tricks to preserving your brows at their fullest and darkest post-treatment, your eyebrow artist has the answer. Here at BrowSugar, we pride ourselves on delivering not only precise results and expertise, but also knowledge on how to care for and preserve perfectly sculpted eyebrows.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your eyebrows stay healthy and vibrant for years to come. So read on if you want to learn more about how to look after your newly enhanced brows!

1. Wear sunscreen on your face every day

Sun exposure can cause your skin to age prematurely and cause discoloration of the treated area, so it’s important to protect it from the sun’s rays!

2. Avoid picking or scratching at the area

Picking or scratching at the area can cause irritation and scarring. Here are some reasons why:

  1. Increases the risk of infection: Picking or scratching the skin after the eyebrow embroidery procedure can break the skin, which increases the risk of bacteria entering the wound and causing an infection. An infection can lead to further complications and delay the healing process.
  2. Slows down the healing process: Picking or scratching the skin can also disrupt the natural healing process of the skin. It can cause scabbing, which can delay the healing process and increase the risk of scarring.
  3. Affects the final result: The picking or scratching of the skin can affect the final result of the eyebrow embroidery procedure. It can cause uneven pigmentation, scarring, or even complete removal of the pigment.
  4. Causes discomfort and pain: Picking or scratching the skin can cause discomfort and pain. The area may become itchy or tender, which can lead to further irritation and damage to the skin.
  5. Affects long-term retention: If the skin is picked or scratched, the pigment may not adhere properly to the skin, and it can affect the long-term retention of the pigment. This can result in fading or patchy eyebrows.

3. Keep the area clean and dry

Clean the area with a mild soap or cleanser and pat it dry. Avoid using any harsh chemicals or astringents on the treated area.

4. Apply a moisturizer to keep skin hydrated

Moisturizing the area can help to keep the skin hydrated, which is important for maintaining healthy skin.

5. Refrain from using harsh products such as astringents, exfoliants, toners, etc.

These products can cause irritation and damage to the treated area. Stick with gentle, natural cleansers and moisturizers.

6. Do not expose the treated area to extreme temperatures (hot or cold)

Extreme temperatures can cause irritation and damage to the treated area. Avoid hot showers, saunas, and steam rooms for at least a week after treatment.

7. Avoid swimming for at least two weeks after treatment

Chlorinated water and other pool chemicals can irritate the treated area, so it’s best to avoid swimming for at least two weeks after your treatment.

8. Avoid direct sunlight for four weeks after treatment

Direct sunlight can cause discoloration of the treated area, so it’s best to avoid it for at least four weeks after your procedure.

9. Follow up with your doctor regularly

It’s important to have regular check-ups with your doctor to make sure that everything is healing correctly and there are no signs of infection.

10. Consider touch-up treatments if necessary

Touch-up treatments can help to keep the shape and color of your brows looking fresh and vibrant. Talk to your doctor about scheduling a touch-up treatment if necessary.


By following these 10 tips for maintaining healthy skin after having an eyebrow embroidery or microblading procedure, you can keep your brows looking their best and protect them from any potential damage. Just remember to wear sunscreen on your face every day and to avoid exposure to extreme temperatures, direct sunlight, and chlorinated water. With regular check-ups and the occasional touch-up treatment, you’ll be able to keep your beautiful eyebrows for years to come!

Why Misty Eyebrow Embroidery is a Go-to Natural Look?

Doesn’t matter how much research you put into it; there is always a possibility of your eyebrow embroidery going wrong. But fret not, because eyebrow embroidery is only semi-permanent and totally fixable.

You can find countless stories of botched eyebrows online. However, eyebrow embroidery is not permanent and it can be easily fixed if you choose a skilled artist. People are sometimes not satisfied by the shape and color of their eyebrows and it is very common. If you are also someone who recently got Microblading done but now you are not really sure if this is what you wanted, then you have landed in the right place.

In this blog, we will tell you what are some of the most common mistakes that immature artists make when Microblading. But hold on, because we will also tell you exactly what to do if you get your eyebrows wrong.

What Are The Common Mistakes Technicians Make?

The most important thing that you need to keep in mind when getting eyebrow embroidery done is to choose the right artist. Reading some of the customer reviews and checking out their work on socials is always a good idea. You should also discuss what type of shape and color you are looking for before the final appointment. A skilled artist will always guide you about what shape and type of Microblading will suit your face and style. On the other hand, someone who hasn’t had any professional training will not be able to answer your questions and address your fears.

The most common mistake that immature technicians make is not choosing the right eyebrow shape for their clients. Eyebrows play an important role in making your face look more prominent and your expressions more subtle. This is the reason why it is very important to take into account the proportions of your client’s face and choose a shape accordingly that will give your client a soft look.

Another mistake that artists often make is not paying attention to the areas where the skin is too thin. This can cause the pigment to be deposited too deep and it heals with a blue or grayish undertone.

Can These Mistakes Be Corrected?

 Good news for all the people with botched eyebrows: these mistakes can easily be rectified. So how do we correct a botched eyebrow job?

According to professional eyebrow artists, the most common and effective way to correct an eyebrow that is too deep and wrongly shaped is laser removal. Laser removal is going to lift the pigment even if your eyebrow shape is too deep or too dark.

However, if you only have a few minor mistakes in the shape and your pigment is not too dark, the mistakes can also be covered by another semi-permanent eyebrow technique called micro shading.

Microshading is a kind of eyebrow embroidery technique that uses a combination of feather strokes and pin dots to create an ombre powder to pomade brow makeup look. This type of eyebrow embroidery looks very natural and seamlessly blends into your skin without looking fake. This is the reason why it is the best option for you to fix some minor mistakes and gaps in your brow placement. However, this method will not necessarily fix a wrong brow shape. It will only work if your previously done eyebrows are symmetrical and there are some minor imperfections that you want to fix.

On the flip side of the coin, technicians are not the only ones to blame for badly done eyebrows. While it may seem like the best option, choosing an inexpensive place is not always the best decision. Eyebrow embroidery and Microblading is an art form that requires utmost precision and the right tools to do correctly. But this is not the case most of the time. People with no experience or training in eyebrow embroidery get behind the tools and make everything worse. This can cost you even more in the long run because then you will have to pay extra to get the bad job fixed.

Hence we recommend you always check out the technician’s portfolio before deciding anything. We also advise you to not fall into the trap of cheap prices, always make sure that the artist is authentic and he or she knows what they are doing. Because despite it being a fixable process, bad and botched embroidery can be a nightmare to deal with.

The bottom line is that yes, eyebrow embroidery can be corrected but there is a caveat; you should wait until your previous Microblading is completely healed before you go in to get it fixed. The healing process can take from fifteen days to a month. But this wait will all be worth it when you finally get the results that you wanted in the first place

It’s a straightforward procedure that involves no tattoo machine—just a licensed practitioner with a manual tool. The artist or the technician uses a tool that contains a fine blade with tiny needles having ink or pigment that is injected into the dermis layer to draw artificial hair.

The pigment used in this procedure stays true to its color for months or even years before it starts to fade. This is something that makes embroidery different from brow tattooing. You can also get the ink custom-made to match your true brow color.

With this treatment, you can get a perfectly defined set of brows that are meant to give you a subtle, natural look. The results achieved from this treatment are better than any brow makeup, no matter how good your makeup skills are. Eyebrow embroidery is effective, safe, and an absolute life-saving technique for perfectionists out there.

Here are some more things you must know before getting eyebrow embroidery.

Get your Skin Ready for The Procedure

You must come to your appointment with well-rested and hydrated skin to avoid the prospect of any side effects after the treatment. Avoid getting a lot of sun exposure before your treatment as it can disrupt the natural state of your skin. Also, if you frequently thread or wax your brows, try to do it at least a week before your appointment.

It Takes a Few Hours

The first and most important step of the process is deciding the shape of your brows. When it is done, the artist working with you will apply the numbing cream on your skin and start micro blading. The whole procedure of eyebrow embroidery takes about 2-3 hours, so be prepared and take some time out of your schedule before booking an appointment.

The Process Doesn’t Hurt

Needles going into your skin sure sound painful, but with eyebrow embroidery, you should know that the process doesn’t hurt at all. Eyebrow artists usually apply numbing cream on your brows before starting the procedure. You can feel a little sensation similar to tweezing which can be a little annoying but is not painful.

Aftercare is Important

Although allergic reactions after this treatment are very rare, it is better to maintain proper aftercare to avoid possible side effects. Use mild soaps to wash your face after the treatment and avoid touching your brows unnecessarily.


Eyebrow embroidery is a life-saving technique to get fuller and more defined brows without applying a ton of makeup. It is a risk-free method to get on-fleak brows that will keep your appearance neat for months or even years. But be sure to choose a licensed brow artist that uses safe practices to avoid the risk of allergies and infections.

The semi-permanent makeup industry has just boomed in recent years all over the world. Celebrities and Instagram influencers, specifically seem to be in love with the idea of semi-permanent makeup because it saves their time and effort.

Eyebrow embroidery, in particular, is an instant-favorite trend that gives beautiful, well-defined brows to anyone who wants to look camera-ready at all times. This semi-permanent makeup treatment uses micro-blading tools to draw perfect arches into your skin.

 While many people these days seem to be catching on to this trend, they have little to no knowledge about the procedure and results of microblading. Want to know how long does eyebrow embroidery last? Read on to get all the details.

How Long Does Eyebrow Embroidery Last?

Eyebrow embroidery is very different from tattooing. It is not a permanent treatment, so you can expect the initial results to fade within 18 to 30 months. But this procedure gives more natural-looking results than tattooing.

For best and long-lasting results, it is better to get a touch-up every year. If you notice that the pigment under your brows is becoming lighter, consult your eyebrow artist and get your brows revamped.

Touch-ups are not like the original procedure and will take very little of your precious time. The artist will only fill the color where it is needed, and you will have a perfectly manicured set of brows in no time. But make sure to head to the brow artist when you see the first signs of fading as it will save you a lot of time. Don’t wait too long to receive the touch-up application as it can ruin the shape of your brows. If you do this, you will probably have to get the microblading done on both your eyebrows all over again.

But how would you know when to get a brow touch-up? Read on to find out!

Eyebrow Embroidery and Skin Type

Your skin type can play a significant role in deciding how often and how sooner you will have to receive touch-ups. If you have oily skin, your eyebrow embroidery will last longer, and you have to get a touchup application sooner. This is because the sebum and oil present under your skin can make it very difficult for the pigment to stick to the outer layer. Similarly, people with a combination of skin types will require touchup sessions more frequently. Whereas people with dry skin can go at least a year without a touchup.

It is recommended that you discuss all the concerns you have regarding your skin type with your aesthetician beforehand.

 How Long does it Take for the Eyebrow Embroidery to Heal?

 Your eyebrow embroidery can take a few days to heal, and here are 5 pointers you need to remember:

  • Eyebrow embroidery can take up to 2 weeks to fully heal.
  • You should avoid touching your sensitive brows during this period as it can trigger an infection.
  • Your brows can itch and minor scabs may develop on the skin around your brows.
  • While washing your face, try not to wet your eyebrows.
  • Avoid getting into the sun.

You will have to wait at least 2 weeks after your eyebrow embroidery session to see those perfect arches. There is a healing process involved, where your skin will become sensitive and red and will eventually flake off, leaving those voluminous and bold brows behind.

During the healing process, try not to pick at the scabs as they can easily cause infections and damage the pigment.

Excessive sweating and wetting your brows can also make the pigment fade more quickly. So, avoid getting into the pool or doing extensive workouts until your eyebrows heal.

Some laser therapies can also damage the pigment. So postpone your laser appointments for a few weeks to ensure a steady healing process.


How long does eyebrow embroidery last? We tried to briefly address this question but there is so definite answer to this query. Depending on your skin type and the quality of the pigment used, your microblading can last anywhere between 18 to 30 months. You should sit down with your aesthetician and discuss all your concerns with him before getting the treatment. You should ask your aesthetician how often and sooner you will require touchups after getting the first treatment.

Since microblading is a semi-permanent treatment, you should do extensive research before booking an artist. Consider a licensed practitioner who is skilled and well-reviewed to avoid any mishaps.

Beautician makeup

Permanent makeup is now becoming increasingly popular, especially eyebrow embroidery and this is the reason why more and more people are leaning towards this smart and efficient way to always look good.

However, making up your mind about eyebrow embroidery is not where the struggle ends, it is where it starts. After you decide to finally get it done, you will probably find yourself in an endless kaleidoscope of different types of Micro-blading and micro-shading options

Despite the fact that there aren’t countless types of eye-brow embroideries, you can still end up all confused and clueless because you will probably have no idea what you want if you are getting it done for the first time. Do you want a soft look or some seriously defined strokes? Maybe you want to fill up only certain parts of your eyebrow without making it look unnatural, or you might just be looking for a fresh ombre effect that will go with all your makeup looks. Either way, it is not hard to find an option that will best suit you.

You will be given the option like ombre powder, 6D micro-blading, and 9D micro-shading. And this is enough to confuse you especially if it is your first time getting eyebrow embroidery done. To make it easier for you, we are going to list down all the different types of eyebrow embroideries so that you can decide which one will better suit your taste.

  1. Ombre Powder Brows

If you want a soft finish and natural-looking embroidery, then this is the option for you. The ombre powder is also commonly called a misty brow look. This kind of eyebrow embroidery is extremely popular now since the ombre brows look more natural and are in trend. The unique thing about ombre powder is that the embroidery is thicker and darker at the edges whereas it is soft and blended where the two brows meet. The lighter embroidery seamlessly blends into the darker tail and gives a very natural yet elegant-looking appearance.

This can also be a good fit for you if you have very thin brow hair or no brows at all. The ombre effect doesn’t overpower the rest of your makeup and perfectly blends into your skin without making it look too unnatural.

  1. 6D Micro-Blading Brows

Micro blading is semi-permanent tattooing that will give you an on-fleek look. The strokes are a lot more defined than the ombre powder brows. Micro blading is done by Nano-blades that help you achieve light and precise strokes to resemble your eyebrow hair. This type of embroidery is extremely common since it gives you an effortless look and saves you the time and trouble of having to fill in your brows every single day.

The Nano-blades are first dipped into a pigment and then used to carefully thread the embroidery onto your skin. The soft featherlike strokes are implanted on your epidermis which gives you a natural yet effortlessly groomed look. This type of eyebrow embroidery is the best option for you if you already have a good amount of eyebrow hair and looking for a simple way to make your eyebrows look more defined and glamorous.

  1. 9D Micro Shading Brows

Do you want something in between the ombre powder brows and micro-blading? Then this is the option for you! Most people prefer the ombre brows because of their soft look but they also want more density to cover up the patches where they don’t have any hair. Well, the micro shading is the sweet spot between the two that you will fall in love with.

It’s a more defined and precise version of micro blading with thinner strokes and more volume. The micro shading is done with a combination of thin feather strokes and dots between the brow hairs to make your eyebrows appear fuller. The primary difference between micro-blading and micro-shading is that micro-bladed brows have thicker and more visible strokes whereas micro-shaded brows usually have more stroke density and dots all combined to make your eyebrows thicker without creating heavy strokes.

These are three of the most popular types of eyebrow embroideries that people get. You can choose according to your taste and the best thing is that these are semi-permanent tattoos and can be removed easily.
