(MP= Micro Pigment DD= Double Drop Pigments ML= Magic Line)

BioTouch pigments can be mixed to match your client’s skin tone for eyebrows, eyeliner and lip liner.

 

Follow these general guidelines before using:

• Do not mix pigments of different brands.
• Shake well each time before use.
• Never touch pigment bottles or
 pigment containers with contaminated gloves to prevent cross contamination.

 

   
Eyebrow Colors
Chocolate Brown (MP):
Use on medium to dark skin-toned clients. Add Light Brown to achieve a softer look. Add Red or Orange to prevent fading to gray or blue.
Coffee Bean (DD):
Great for brows on auburn and redheaded clients. Add Olive to neutralize if needed. .
Dark Brown (MP):
Ash base. Lighter than Chocolate Brown, can be used on all skin tones, but mostly used on medium brown skin tones. Add Orange or Light Brown to produce a more natural look.
Deep Brown (DD):
A deep rich brown. Use with Midnight Black for a dark brown eyeliner. This mixture is good for dark skin tones.
Espresso (DD):
Darker than Deep Brown for dark skin tones. Add orange to prevent color from turning too dark.
Brown (MP):
Mostly used on redheaded clients because of the warm, red tone base. If the skin has a lot of yellow tones, this color will create a warmer brown tone.
Golden Brown (DD):
The lightest brown available in the Double Drop line. Good for blondes and light skin tones. Add Taupe to prevent color from fading to Orange.
Light Brown (MP):
Gold-based brown used for light skin tones. Add Yellow or Taupe for a more blonde look.
