Color Correction: Blue, Red, Grey Brows

Updated: Aug 12

Did your eye brow turn red, blue or grey after Microblading?

Color changes can happen for various reasons.

1. Ink not deposited at the right depth. When ink is deposited too shallow, it will result in a lack of saturation, turning brow into a lighter orange/pink colour. When the ink is deposited too deep, it can cause scarring and the colour will heal ashy.

2. Formulation of the pigment brand- the lightfastness rating of the colours may not have been equally balanced which can leave behind those undesired dominant residual colour

3. Skin tone- Client with warm undertone will pull the warm tone off a pigment more than a person with a cool undertone.

If you have a brow that's changed colour, you can get it colour corrected. This process can take more than two sessions, depending on how much colour has faded and how much correction needs to be done to achieve the desired result.

This client had her eyebrows tattooed over 30 years ago and they have turned blue. Luckily I was able to work with the original shape, and the color has faded quite a bit so could do color correcting without going through any laser removal session. Using an orange corrector for the first two passes, and target color for the 3rd pass, I was able to achieve a warm brown color within session. We both love the final color on her.

Client has eyebrows that faded into a bright orange/salmon colour. An olive corrector was used to neutralize the base colour and target colour shaded on top. The result will heal into a more more natural brown colour.
