The Powder Brows procedure is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing technique that involves filling in eyebrows with dots of fine pigment to create a powdered eyebrow effect. This technique is increasingly popular as an alternative to microblading, as it offers a more natural look and doesn’t require as frequent touch-ups.
However, many people wonder which skin type this procedure will look better on white skin or dark skin. Both skin types have their advantages and disadvantages, but in this case, the result of the procedure is almost identical. So, the answer is that the Powder Brows technique is recommended for both skin types. There are no big differences that would make you give up the idea of tattooing your eyebrows to make up for a flaw or an incorrect/asymmetrical shape of your eyebrows.
If you’re dealing with white skin, it will bring out the pixels created by the Powder Brows technique very well. White skin requires the use of a light color pigment, even if your natural hairs are dark. This is because the pigment curing and retention process takes place in the skin and the final color will be determined by the mix between the skin undertone and the color of the pigment used.
On the other hand, on darker skin, the final effect may be less obvious, but the Powder Brows technique remains the most suitable. It is important to consider the skin’s undertone and choose the appropriate pigment to achieve the desired effect. For example, for black skin, we will never use a black eyebrow pigment. We will opt for a dark brown, which we will mix with a warm color to avoid scarring in cool colors such as grey or blue.
Thus, the effect can be ideal or disastrous depending on how well we know how to choose the color with which we tattoo our clients’ eyebrows. Furthermore, it is essential to remember that for dark skin we will never use a black eyebrow pigment even if the client has very dark hair because it is recommended to avoid scarring in cool colors such as grey or blue. Dark brown should be chosen for a harmonious look and trouble-free scarring.
In conclusion, whether we are dealing with fair skin or dark skin, the Powder Brows procedure can be performed successfully. It is important to consult with a specialist and choose the right pigment to achieve the desired effect and enjoy perfect brows for a long time.
