  • Firstly, the selection of the correct shape of the eyebrows. The Artist selects the most suitable form based on the client’s type. The style and shape of the eyebrows are discussed and corrected.
  • Secondly, choosing the selection of the colour of the pigment. Based on looks and accents that create a complete look. One or more dye shades are selected to create the perfect eyebrow colour.
  • Thirdly, the Artist is applying anaesthesia (lidocaine) on the eyebrows. The Master uses anaesthetic twice (primary and secondary) to reduce pain.
  • Fourth. The Artist should always start with Microblading since this technique requires the careful and manual drawing of the hair. The Artist uses special needles u18 or u19 intended only for the maniple technique’s craft manual.
  • Above all, an artist can start spraying the Microshadingstyle when the microblading eyebrows technique was finished and the shape has acquired volume and density. To begin applying pixels, the Artist uses a “pen” tattoo machine. Where uses needles R1 or R5. This technique’s peculiarity lies in the fact that the inner part of the eyebrows is closer to the face’s centre is sprayed with a rare amount of pixels. Meanwhile, to emphasise the eyebrows’ outline shape, the artist sometimes can increase the contrast by spraying more pixels in the lower part of the eyebrows. It’s giving the eyebrows an ombre style.
  • In conclusion, consultation and registration for a retouch. Upon completing the procedure, the Master applies a wound-healing preparation, advises on any issues and writes up for a retouch. 

How much is Combo Brows?

 The price of a combination eyebrow tattooing in Melbourne ranges from 450 to 1,500 AUD per session. Strong recommendations before signing up for a master. Always look at his portfolio. Take a look at the portfolio as well. Self-respect, the artist will never use Photoshop to process his work. If you see any work processed with Photoshop, This is the first sign that the artist has either stolen this work or is trying to hide something wrong. Even though he will be in a costly salon, this is not an indicator of meeting the permanent makeup criteria.

 In conclusion, as you can see, this technique requires a high level of skill from the artist. In our experience, the artist should have at least one hundred clients’ in the past in other techniques. Besides, this master requires a special needle, pigment, and different equipment types for this procedure. That is why not many studios in Melbourne can boast of this procedure. Also, this procedure is more expensive as it requires more attention and experience in the cosmetic tattooing industry.

Disadvantages of the "microblading and shading" technique.

Of course, any procedure has its own set of limitations and features. The mixed tattooing technique is no exception. Here are some important nuances that you should know before contacting a specialist in a tattoo studio:

  1. Immediately after the procedure, the tattoo will look bright enough. Accordingly, to do it in the morning so that in the evening you will not get a date with flawless makeup. Therefore, a visit to the master must be scheduled. Do not forget that the applied pigment is done by piercing the leather. The complete healing process takes from 1 to 1.5 months.

What are the pigments? How long is the procedure for mixed eyebrow tattooing?

Returning to the topic of materials, let us clarify that several different pigments are used to perform permanent tattooing. Having different shades of the same colour should have approximately the same characteristics. Only in this case the artist will create neat and thin lines, effectively making shadows. In Face Figurati studio, we use only certified tested for years pigments.

This is a time-consuming and challenging job. On average, a specialist needs almost 2 hours to perform his task flawlessly. We do not consider the creation and subsequent approval of the created sketch nor the preparatory process.

You should also consider the pain threshold of clients. Therefore, it is necessary to use special drugs for local anaesthesia. The selection of anaesthetic is always individual, taking into account the presence of contraindications, allergic reactions

As you can see, the procedure is quite laborious, requiring complete dedication and a high level of professional training from the master performer. These requirements are reflected in the cost of the work performed.

Combo Brows FAQ

When you want to get the most natural tattooing effect, the master recommends doing a mixed technique. It is a universal technique that includes two permanent makeup methods – microblading feathering eyebrows and powdery shading. Pixel dusting (powdery eyebrows) creates a background, visual density without precise shapes and edges. Microblading adds a natural look and texture to the eyebrows, mimics the natural growth of hairs, corrects asymmetries, and hides imperfections. This combination of techniques creates a fantastic result – the eyebrows look natural, without pretentiousness and excessive glamour. It appears to have been used with decorative cosmetics applied by the hand of a professional.

The key feature is the use of multiple shades of pigment. To draw the hairs, the artist uses a lighter shade. Besides, for the background – darker pigments. The combination creates a harmonious look and perfectly complements the face and image.

When choosing shades, the master is guided by the client’s wishes and the rules of colour, choosing colours that match each other. The colour type of girl is also of great importance: the hair, skin, eyes. As a rule, shades in brown and black are chosen to create a beautiful result, but shades of red (chestnut, red) can also use if such colours suit the girl. Before the procedure, the master advises the client, and together the optimal shades are selected.

On average, the effect remains visible for up to 2 years. But the term is quite individual and depends on several factors.
When creating permanent makeup, unique modern pigments on a biological basis are used. Their advantage lies in the fact that they are well accepted by the body, give maximum sediment and gradually dissolve and become invisible. This natural process takes, on average, one and a half to two years. Moreover, depending on the type and age of the skin, the chosen colours, and the organism’s characteristics, the effect can be either more or less.

For example, on oily and youthful skin, the effect may be shorter due. And on the age, on the contrary, longer. Dark pigments are visible longer than lighter ones. The perception of dye by the body is also essential. The immune system can actively fight it, actively releasing lymph, which will “wash out” the pigment and shorten the duration of the effect.
