Microblading is a form of a cosmetic semi-permanent makeup performed using, a manual (not a machine) disposable handheld tool, composed with very fine needles resembling the shape of a blade (we call it a microblade), to hand draw each individual hair and simultaneously implant the pigment into the skin.
Microshading is a form of semi-permanent makeup that involves shading eyebrows by making fine, minute dots along the brow area using a single, sterile needle attached to an electronic tattoo device. A numbing cream is applied to lessen the pain and the procedure can last between 1-2 hours. This technique uses the application of fine dots, gradually building up color and a defined outline eventually giving a shaded look. It has more of a powdery, soft, drawn outlook. Microshading is sometimes referred to as powder brows or ombre brows.
