PhiShading: The Next Big Thing After Microblading

Lately, it seems that natural look has been coming back into fashion. Thin, pencil-drawn eyebrows are in the past – thick, dense, bushy eyebrows have taken over television, runway and possibly the most influential social media platform – Instagram. Thanks to new trends in cosmetic treatment, there are various techniques to get the trendy natural look. Being one of the most important features of a person’s face, eyebrows must look as natural as possible and that can be achieved by microblading or others, even more advanced techniques, such as PhiShading.

A Quick Reminder of Microblading

As you already might have read in our previous posts, microblading is a semi-permanent version of eyebrow shaping and draving. The process of microblading involves implanting appropriate pigment into your skin, using a tool which looks like a pen and consists of 12 to 15 fine needles. The needles are very thin and they make small scratches on the surface, unlike in the process of eyebrow tattoos, which is in the deep layer of skin. The result is – more natural-looking eyebrows that don’t last forever, which is a good thing in case you change your mind after some time, or the trend changes.

If we compare the 1990s when eyebrows were just two thin lines and 2000s dominated by bushy thick eyebrows, we can see that no eyebrows trend lasts for long, so you don’t want anything permanent on your face.

What is PhiShading?

Just when women around the world became obsessed with the technique that made their brows look natural and dense, something even better appeared. A more advanced procedure of microblading is microshading or PhiShading, an eyebrow treatment created by PhiAcademy. It is a combination of two techniques – microblading and shading.

Microblading involves pulling or dragging the microblade across your skin and it is followed by shading, which is done by pushing the microblade directly down against the skin. These two techniques combined provide eyebrows that look powdered and even more natural, since the space between the hairs is filled with lighter pigment, making something like a shadow. In microblading, gaps are required in the work to resemble the distance between hair, while in shading the area between hairs is airbrushed with pigment. This combination of microblading and shading results in perfect eyebrows.

Eventhough the procedure might sound painful, the treated area is numbed before microshading, making it more bearable. After all, it is a small price for something that will last for almost two years (the estimated time after which eyebrows return to their original shape and color). Also, your eyebrows might seem a bit too dark and swollen after the process, but everything looks as it should after the healing process.

Who is It For?

If you are tired of doing your uneven eyebrows every morning, trying to make them look as natural as possible, microblading shading is something you should consider. Not only does it make you look as if you always have your make up on, but it also saves time you usually spend every morning on trying to make your eyebrows look realistic. Also, you don’t have to worry that the eyebrow pencil will be smudged all over your face in case you get wet in the rain or go to a swimming pool. It is also recommended for people with sensitive skin, people who have no natural eyebrows and people with oily skin.

Eyebrows are the most important feature of a person’s face and PhiShading is a treatment that has helped a lot of women feel better about themselves. Many celebrities have also decided to join the recent trend and opt for microshading, and it is known that they are the ones who set all the fashion and beauty trends.
