Colour and correction is one of the most vital theories of permanent cosmetics and medical tattooing for artists; assessing skin tone and types, using the correct needles, having the right stretch, the list goes on. But one of the primary factors in the quality of the final result for any client relies heavily upon the pigment used.
Does the pigment offer good stability and high definition? How does the pigment fade? Does the colour heal true? Does the pigment have the correct undertone and base to match the client’s skin tone? These are all important factors to consider before the needle even touches your clients skin.
With women investing thousands of pounds each year on permanent make-up, it is becoming more and more important to ensure they are getting the best possible results. To ensure artists throughout the UK are up to date and knowledgeable about colour and correction theory, Karen Betts, one of the most prolific names in semi-permanent makeup and tattooing, hosted a Permanent cosmetics Colour and Correction Pro-Tips Education Day at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on 6th July. The event was a resounding success, as Karen and her team of elite artists imparted their industry expertise and knowledge in all things colour theory.
“After more than 15 years in the industry, I am thrilled to have been able to experience the new colour wheel and KB Pro colour pigments. Can’t wait to put both to good use. An invaluable course. All staff were knowledgeable, helpful and so pleasant. Great day, will attend further training with KB. Xx” Sandie
Karen also launched her new K.B Pro pigment range at the event, giving attendees an exclusive opportunity to use the new pigments. All attendees were gifted a goody bag of sample pigments worth £120, along with a Professional Colour Book and Colour Wheel worth over £100. All attendees also received a Certificate of Attendance to officially validate the invaluable information they had learnt.
Don’t worry if you missed the event, there are still a few spaces left at the Colour and Correction Day in South Yorkshire, 28th of September. But, hurry and book now as spaces are limited.
