Moreover, you must know which pigment will appear in which color on healing. Red, yellow, black, and brown are the basic and must-have pigments.

 Measuring calipers can help you to take precise measurements of clients’ brows. You can easily measure the brows to create the symmetrical ideal shape as per the client’s demands. These measuring calipers come in a variety of shapes and materials. 

Purchasing good quality measuring calipers is a one-time investment. I never bought low quality measuring calipers as they can have the wrong measuring scale.

Pigment Mixture Machine

A pigment mixture is a machine that can make your job easy. You have to mix different pigments to created desired shade then the machine can mix the pigment with the right consistency. This machine can help you to mix pigment quickly and perfectly.

Hand mixing requires three minutes to mix pigments, and then the machine can perform this function in a few seconds more perfectly.

Due to the anesthetic effect clients feel comfortable and relaxed. Moreover, you can use barrier film to cover the borrow area. It can increase the absorption of numbing cream and make it more effective.

These pens are useful for those clients who want less/ no invasive procedure. Different cosmetic companies are making these microblading pens at different costs.
