Microblading – it’s a form of semi permanent cosmetic makeup and the colour you choose is going to be with you for months, if not years to come. So the task should not be taken lightly. But for most of us, choosing the ‘perfect’ colour can be confusing – because we’re not colour specialists. Luckily, your beautician should be a specialist and should be able to help you pick the perfect match. But how do they do it?
Microblading technicians need to take a few different things into account when choosing your perfect colour. Your skin tone, your features, and your personal preferences should all be taken into consideration. Colour matching will be done during your initial consultation, and during the process your beautician will probably apply small amounts of different colour pigments near your brows to test them out.
In most cases your beautician will choose a colour based on your own natural brows. For a natural look, it’s best to go a few shades lighter than those hairs. If you have no eyebrow hairs, it comes down to picking a colour that you like and that looks natural with your skin type.
The more times the area is went over with the needle, the darker it will be. So one colour doesn’t always mean one shade. Some beauticians like to mix it up. For example, for someone who has dull brows that lack an arch, a beautician may place more colour above the arch to create the appearance of a lifted brow. If the client is going for a more defined look, the beautician may use a solid effect.
It really comes down to what looks best with your skin tone and what type of look you are going for. For a more natural look, you should stay within a few shades of your natural brow colour. For a bolder look, you can mix things up and play around.
