Brows Shading is a new take on the traditionally shaded eyebrows with a permanent makeup pen. Artists use the Russian Shading Technique to deposit the pigment into the first layer of the Dermis. This allows the pigment to stay true to its color without the effects of the skin’s blue undertone, that often causes the pigment to fade to a blue color. This technique also allows a soft gradient to be produced, very much like the penciled in, instagram brow effect – soft front, gradually getting darker as it goes to the tail. Russian Brows Shading usually last between 1.5 to 3 years.
