As pros in the precision game, you know that pigment selection is key.

Join me in this exploration; together, we'll refine our craft and make each stroke count. Your commitment to perfection is what sets you apart, and I'm here to help you take it to the next level. Let's get started.

Microblading aims to create the illusion of individual eyebrow hairs for a clean, defined look. In this technique, a thicker pigment is preferred to prevent color migration. The emphasis is on achieving clean and precise strokes that mimic natural eyebrow hair. On the other hand, PowderBrows involves a digital makeup effect, requiring a slightly more liquid pigment. This consistency allows the cartridge to absorb and expel the color, ensuring proper implantation into the skin. The goal is to achieve a soft, powdered finish rather than individual hair strokes.

PhiBrows SUPER Pigments are recommended for professionals practicing PMU. These pigments are versatile, suitable for both microblading and PowderBrows techniques. The key is to use PhiContour Thinner, a viscosity-reducing agent, to adjust the thickness of the pigment according to the chosen technique.

To transform a microblading pigment into one suitable for PowderBrows, mix one part PhiContour Thinner with three parts pigment. This creates the desired liquidity for the PowderBrows technique. However, artists should consider variations based on factors such as cartridge respirator size and neck thickness. Adjustments may be needed to ensure smooth pigment flow and proper implantation.

Machine Stroke and Pigment Consistency

The stroke or movement of your PMU/Tattoo machine isn't just a dance—it's a crucial element in determining your ideal pigment consistency. Every stroke influences how thick or thin your pigment should be for optimal results. Understanding this dynamic interplay is key to achieving the precision your clients expect.

Cartridge Components: Respirator Size and Neck Thickness

In the intricate world of Permanent Makeup, the components of your cartridge matter. The respirator size and neck thickness act as silent conductors, shaping the tone of your pigment flow. Consider these factors carefully; they hold the secret to the liquidity or thickness your pigment needs for seamless implantation.
