Blue Eyebrow Corrector
To understand the limitations of what colors you can achieve and how to obtain a different color, see section on color theory. The color we are trying to achieve in these examples is a neutral brown. Mix a complementary color or use a premixed pigment designed to correct certain colors. It may require some trial and error to obtain the best results. Pay close attention to the resulting color throughout. Use a light shading technique with a 5 prong needle so that you affect just the surface color. During the procedure, pause for 1-3 minutes throughout the procedure to use (Blue Gel or any secondary numb) to control swelling and bleeding so you can see more of the true color and judge the correct intensity and amount of color to use. Use a correcting color equal in intensity to the color you want to correct. Mix 5-10 drops of water per drop of pigment to dilute the correcting color to the correct intensity. If the client’s existing color has already faded a lot, simply add a few drops of the correcting color to your depositing color.
If you use too much of the correcting color and the resulting color appears too much like the correcting color you’re using, then use a complementary color to the correcting color to neutralize the correcting color. For example, when using the “blue eyebrow corrector,” a reddish orange pigment, if the resulting color appears too reddish or orange, use a mixture of olive or taupe, the complementary color, to neutralize. The redder the color the more olive you would use. Any color can be neutralized so relax. And please advise your client that all corrections might take more than one procedure.
