Microblading and ombre eyebrows are both types of manual tattoos for thin or sparse eyebrows.
Microblading is also known as eyebrow embroidery or hairstroke tattooing. This method can create very natural looking, and even fluffy eyebrows. This technique is best suited for normal to dry skin types with refined pores.

Ombre brows are also called powder brows, microshading, or simply shaded brows. This technique gives more of a dense, makeup effect to the brows and would be better suited for a oily to combination skin type, or someone with larger pores, as well as anyone with prevous PMU.
When shading is done alone, it can look very dramatic and 'tattooed' if you don't already have fuller brows. This is why it is popular to mix feathered hairstrokes with the makeup effect shading technique to produce a combination brow.
