02 Aug CHOOSING THE CORRECT PIGMENTS FOR MICRO BLADING & PERMANENT MAKEUP
Welcome back beautiful! So nice to see you again!
I am often asked about color & pigment choice for micro blading & permanent makeup procedures. I’ve put together a little intro article below, in a series of many, that I hope you find helpful and enjoy. Choosing the correct pigment coloring isn’t quite as simple as it seems, however with the right knowledge & understanding you can make the proper choice in determining what color or color combo is the right choice for your client. I hope you enjoy this blog post & stay tuned for more informative articles.
PIGMENT COLOR is a critical part of any permanent makeup or micro blading procedure. There are some very important assessment steps that are required before your procedure.
ASSESSMENT of client’s dominant facial features, contour, facial shape and head shape. The facial shape has an important bearing on the assessment of brow shape for your micro blading or permanent makeup procedure.
ASSESSMENT of skin color. The skin color has a substantial impact on the correct selection of pigment color and the final result of the micro blading/permanent makeup after healing.
SELECTION of appropriate pigment color. The final color achieved is a blend of your pigment color, skin color and healing process. It is important to consider these factors when choosing a pigment color. A wide selection of pigment colors is essential.
ASSESSMENT of skin type, the amount of pigment to implant, and the number of procedures will be required.
TRYING TO IMPLANT too much pigment can cause tissue trauma and unwanted results such as pigment migration (ending up in the wrong location), in particular with fragile skin types.
IT’S ESSENTIAL to select a micro blading/permanent makeup technician who has genuine knowledge and training to assess these important factors prior to commencing the procedure. It is important for the client to understand the changes that occur to the pigment color when it is implanted into the skin and blends with their skin color and other changes that occur with the healing process.
Clients can be taken aback at the intensity and boldness of the color after the initial procedure, however during the healing process the color will fade significantly. The final colour achieved will fall between the initial color (immediately after treatment) and the healed color after 4-6 weeks.
Your initial micro blading/permanent makeup should always require a second appointment for the procedure to ensure the best possible results, and it should be a generally a complimentary visit, as micro blading & permanent makeup are a 2 part process.
As you can see with so many factors it is important to select a micro blading/permanent makeup technician who genuinely understands the relationship between color of your skin, pigments chosen and the healing process.
Both micro blading and permanent makeup are a beauty investment with lasting results, so do your homework, and choose the right technician. You should be comfortable finding a technician who is affordable, has a portfolio of photos, is active on social media to show off their work, replies to you promptly within 24 hours, who will take the time to sit down for a consultation or chat on the phone. Remember YOU are the customer, and YOU are the reason we are successful, so feel free to ask questions!
