The production process involves different ingredients being mixed together that will result in colours that will make up the palette to be worked with. The first rule that must be taken into account is that in obtaining colours for the palette, it is necessary to forget the theory of subtractive colour synthesis and replace it with the theory of “generated colours” in pigmentology. In order to replace one concept with the other, a comparative table will be established. With this in mind, the well-known traditional colour theory will replace a new theory one that will be used in micropigmentationThe chromatic star in pigmentologyThe first concept we have to address is that of the classic chromatic circle, product of the “subtractive synthesis” theory, which will be replaced with the chromatic star:The educational tool resulting from the reformation of the classic “subtractive synthesis” into this new concept which uses different base colours as its starting point. These new base colours will be used in order to obtain different colours from the palette. These base colours are not part of the traditional colour wheel because black and white are not classed as colours.The base colours in this concept are:RedYellowBlackWhiteThe combination of all the above colours in different proportions will create brown. The chromatic star was designed by Goldeneye and Mario Gisbert in 2008 to help simplify the manufacturing process and colour corrections.Manufacturing processFor pigment manufacturing purposes black and white are used in

Skin has its own colour, so choosing a colour for your client is ‘key’ to a perfect looking natural brow to match their undertone of skin and blend with their hair colour.Skin tone analysis is a vital part of the consultation as your practitioner can then accurately assess what they need to use to get the correct colour balance for your permanent makeup.It’s not just a case of mixing a colour and applying it, you as a practitioner will have the underpinning knowledge and the understanding of colour theory when pigment is implanted to different skin tones. This is to avoid warm skin tones looking too pink/orange and cool skin tones looking too blue/purple, therefore it is imperative to work with the skin tone for each individual client.Skin colourFirst it is advisable to ascertain the Fitzpatrick scale of your client’s skin, this will determine whether the pigment you choose will be light, medium or dark.UndertonesThe undertones that are visible upon skin tone study falls into 3 categoriesColdWarmNeutralThe three undertones of the skin will have a huge impact on the pigment you will choose for your client. Our pigment catalogue has a great colour identification chart to help perfectly select the correct pigment. This chart can be found on page 7 of the pigment catalogue.Identifying undertonesHair colour - A key example in deciding the undertones of your client is to look at the client’s hair colour. If it

The main difference between Semi permanent makeup and Microblading are the methods used to implant pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. Semi-permanent makeup is also known as permanent makeup and micropigmentation. There is very conflicting information around the method of microblading, which is also sometimes incorrect and can be very confusing for clients to choose the correct treatment that is most suitable for them.  At DC Micro we choose to focus our expertise in Micropigmentation only. Generally, most technicians will have a preferred method of cosmetic tattooing however this article has been created to show an unbiased and factual opinion on both methods. For reference the rest of this article I will refer to Micropigmentation as the digital method and the hand tool method as microblading.MethodsMicropigmentation is performed using a digital machine, dermograph (handpiece) and disposable needle. The machine works in a similar way to a sowing machine works, the up and down motion gently pierces the skin and implants the pigment through the small piercing of the skin. Digital machines for semi-permanent makeup differ from that of traditional tattoo machines due to the lower frequency of power they use. The lower power ensures that the pigment can be implanted more superficial in the skin to ensure a less permanent result.  Microblading is performed by the use of a disposable handheld tool which has the needle attached. The depth is greatly decided by the technician’s pressure and hand movement. Microblading

This Permanent Makeup treatment is a lovely soft treatment, taking a lash enhancement or basic eyeliner to a new level!We still need the basics of an eyeliner, so as long as you get good retention, you are ready to take your skills to the next level with this amazing technique!STEP 1 - PREDRAWINGThe predrawing is extremely important and for this an artistic eye is a complete necessity. No two eyes are the same and the angle you give one eyeliner won't fall the same as the other. So we tweak each one eye so that at "speaking distance" the eyeliners look symmetrical.The predrawing is done with pigment (using our Goldeneye mix and draw sticks). First designing the eyeliner and then marking the edges of the eyeshadow / shade or blend (see image above). You can smudge the pigment with a cotton bud to show the client an idea of what the shading might look like.STEP 2 - DESIGN TRANSFEROnce we and the client are 100% happy with the shape and design we can start the design transfer. For this we use a singe needle.Low machine speed and very light pressure, etch in the eyeliner, the outline of the shadow area and the beginning of the shading.Once the template is set we do not change it during the treatment. There might be slight swelling during the procedure and if we start compensating for this the final result will not be
