Not sure about microblading? Try Powder Strokes instead

A few weeks ago, Eye Design founder and Master Technician Nadia Afanaseva introduced her newest semi-permanent brow solution to her community: Powder Strokes! Have you seen it yet?

If you follow Nadia on Instagram, then you have definitely seen her recent posts showcasing this beautiful new technique! Nadia and the rest of the Eye Design team are so thankful for all the wonderful feedback so far. (And if you don’t follow her, then you are missing out on all of Eye Design’s exciting announcements!

Unlike microblading, which uses manual pigment application, the Powder Strokes technique requires a small machine tool. It results in feather-smooth hair-like strokes that look incredibly natural! 

Powder Strokes is a softer, more subtle alternative to microblading that requires less downtime (only 3 to 5 days of dry healing). It is a great option for clients who have over-plucked, over-waxed or naturally sparse brows, and it also works wonderfully over old permanent/semi-permanent makeup that has faded.

As the industry’s leading expert, Nadia is able to use Powder Strokes to add volume and fill in patchy areas throughout the entire eyebrow. Her clients’ brows always look full and defined without sacrificing the appearance of hair strokes! This new semi-permanent technique creates instant volume with a fluffy, feathery and overall natural look. Clients love the hyper-realistic results and Nadia loves that it heals beautifully on all skin types with less downtime than microblading!

Results last just as long as microblading: 12 to 18 months depending on the individual’s skin type and how quickly the individual’s skin regenerates. Although pigment may last under the for up to three years, Nadia always recommends a touch-up at the 12- to 18-month point to keep brows looking their best! This is true for all brow clients (microblading, Powder Effect and Powder Strokes).

Picture it: 12 months or more without worrying about your brow pencil! A year of waking up feeling confident in your own skin! Your beauty routine, simplified!

Eye Design’s New York City studio is the only place in the world you can experience Nadia’s eyebrow artistry for yourself! Nadia is the only technician in our studio offering her new Powder Strokes technique.

Our studio offers complimentary in-person and phone consultations! We want you to be comfortable and confident when you choose to work with us. Similarly, we also offer patch tests for clients who are worried about negative reactions to our pigments. Although Nadia herself worked alongside chemists and doctors to develop her range of mineral-based, hypoallergenic Microblading and Powder Effect Pigments, clients with particularly sensitive skin can come back to Eye Design for their appointments worry-free after a successful patch test!

We use topical anesthetics before and throughout the procedure so that it remains painless for clients! (In fact, many of our brow and lash clients fall asleep during their treatments with us.)

To make your appointment for Powder Strokes with Nadia, call Eye Design at (917) 300-0317! Our friendly and informed staff is ready to answer any questions you may have.
