What exactly is the Powder Brow technique?
5th May 2021 by Maria-Luise Praschberger
With the Powder Brow technique, the focus is not on the individual hairs, but on a shadow-like gradient, which is pigmented into the uppermost skin layer by fine pigments placed in dots and thus appears like powder.
For a very expressive and compact look, Powder Brows are used without an additional method.
With a combined method, on the other hand, the eyebrows are first emphasized with the hair drawing and then refined with the Powder Brow technique for even more fullness. This creates an extremely deceptively real-looking eyebrow, even with hardly any natural hair.
For a very expressive and compact look, Powder Brows are used without any additional pigmentation technique.
Our new PB pigments have been specially developed for this technique. They are characterized by high color density and saturation, and thanks to the so-called PFO process (Pigment Flow), the pigments obtain a smooth color texture that reduces the pigmentation time. Even after the first pigmentation step, the color remains visible in the skin.
We have had the best experience with this technique using the Genius 3 Micro and 5 Shader Module. Our tip on how to achieve a neutral brown tone for all skin types, from light to brown, is to blend PB41 Mocha and PB42 Espresso.
But do not forget the basic rule that a pigmentation of the eyebrows should be natural and visually symmetrical perfect. The own color is emphasized, gaps are filled by hairs or shades and the shape is adapted to the customer.
Of course, all Swiss Color® eyebrow pigments are free of titanium dioxide, tartrazine, PAH, nickel, AZO dyes as well as fragrances and preservatives.
I am looking forward to our conversation,
