Hardly a section of face can affect our entire facial expression as much as our eyebrows. They give the eyes contour, can be emphasized naturally or expressively depending on the styling and provide with new trends for conversation.
The new trend technology for absolutely natural-looking, perfectly defined eyebrows.
The MICROSHADING trend was born from the clients’ wish for a perfectly defined and natural, but still lightly powdered looking eyebrow.
We picked up this Permanent Make-up trend and optimized it for our device and colour pigments for an extraordinarily gentle micropigmentation method.
Our video below shows how MICROSHADING can achieve an optical 3D effect with the LONG-TIME-LINER® method. The finest hair color combination combined with a gentle shading and soft contours creates the perfect MICROSHADING effect.
What is special
about LONG-TIME-LINER® MICROSHADING?
In the MICROSHADING technique form and contours of the eyebrows are determined by a very fine hair stroke design whilst a smooth shading, placed in the middle of the brow, creates a natural looking 3D effect.
The very gentle micropigmentation allows this technique to be used also for more sensitive skin types. The intensity of the micropigmentation can be adjusted depending on the clients’ individual type.

Video & Step-by-Step instruction
for the LONG-TIME-LINER® MICROSHADING technique
Thoroughly cleanse your clients’ skin.
Determine the optimal and type-correct brow bow depending on the shape of the face and the natural brow shape. Design the pre-drawing (video starting at 0:08) and tweeze the eyebrows if necessary.
Choose the optimal pigment colour depending on the natural eyebrow hair colour. You can also choose a pigment that is one tone lighter than the natural colour of the eyebrows. This highlights a very natural looking effect.
Determine the form of the eyebrows by pre-drawing the fine hair strokes (video starting at 0:30). When form and colour are approved by the client, start with the micropigmentation.
Start by pigmenting the fine main hair strokes of the pre-drawing from front to end of the eyebrow to secure the form.
In Microshading, you then pigment from back to front end: start at the end of the brow with the fine hair stroke pigmentation, then work your way to the front end of the brow part by part by alternating pigmenting and wiping off the pre-drawing: pigment a part, then wipe off the pre-drawing where you already pigmented, then pigment the next part, wipe off the pre-drawing etc.
When the fine hair strokes for the form of the eyebrow are ready in the desired intensity, proceed by pigmenting the middle of the eyebrow with a smooth shading (video starting at 0:40). This gives the eyebrow a 3D-effect. Make sure there is no harsh contour and that the shading smoothly blends towards the upper contour. When shading and drawing hair strokes always work very lightly towards the front end of the eyebrow.
Check your MICROSHADING hair strokes and shading and make adaptations if necessary.
Book an appointment with your client 2 weeks after the micropigmentation in order to check the result and re-work if necessary.
