What is Microshading
Want the woke-up-like-this look? Microshading is a type of cosmetic tattoo where hundreds of tiny dots of pigment are deposited underneath your brows for a flawlessly finished appearance without regular makeup. It mirrors the look of traditional brow powder to fill in gaps and add definition.
Microshading Could Be For You If:
You wear brow makeup every day
You want to enhance your natural look
You don’t have sensitive, acne-prone or oily skin
You often feel self-conscious when you aren’t wearing makeup

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Microshading Hurt?
It depends on your threshold for pain. Unlike a traditional tattoo, permanent makeup is done using a much smaller needle at a shallower depth, making it much less painful. Numbing cream is also applied, meaning some clients feel no pain at all. You may feel some tenderness or itching during the microshading healing process.
How Long Does Microshading Last?
With proper aftercare, microshading can last 1-3 years. It’s a long-term beauty investment that can leave you feeling more confident with and without makeup while reducing your day-to-day brow maintenance.
How Much Does Microshading Cost?
A DMV Salon, initial microshading sessions start from $400-$450, which includes a full consultation, facial mapping, and the procedure itself. A follow-up session after 4-6 weeks costs just $150-$200, while touch-ups after 12 months or more start from $300-$350.
