To commemorate the launch of her new K.B Pro pigments, Karen Betts is offering permanent cosmetics artists throughout the UK the chance to receive six FREE 2ml sample pigments in assorted colours, worth over £50, for a limited time only.
Each pigment from the new K.B Pro range has been thoroughly tested and personally approved by Karen and her Elite Team of Permanent cosmetics artists, and as well as offering greater stability and higher definition, the K.B Pro pigments also achieve a ‘truer’ intended healing colour.
Even though the pigments have been approved by some of the industry’s most renowned permanent cosmetics artist, Karen wants to give artists the opportunity to undertake their own trials and give the pigments their very own seal of approval.
The complimentary samples consist of 3 brow pigments: Ibiza, Paris and Milan; an adjuster pigment sample; Casablanca and Rio De Janiero; a soft black Eyeliner Pigment. The sixth pigment is a mystery pigment which varies for each sample, giving artists the ability to experience different pigments from the K.B Pro range.
To get the most out of the samples, Karen has devised some top tips:
BROW PIGMENT SAMPLES
A really lovely colour to use on fair-haired clients and it stays true in the skin once healed. Due to its slightly cool and soft ashy undertones, I find it works well in fair skin and neutralises soft salmon tones.
A lovely, rich medium-to-dark cool brown with a hint of golden undertones. Heals very true to colour. I sometimes warm it up with a couple of drops of Casablanca. I love to use a 1 point needle with Paris for really well defined hair strokes.
My universal medium-to-dark brown. Upon healing the client will lose a maximum 10%-20% of the colour, so great retention. For cooler skin tones, you may want to warm it up with a couple of drops of Casablanca.
ADJUSTER PIGMENT SAMPLE
A lovely yellow-orange mixer and warmer for light to medium toned brow pigments. It’s also great for shading over light grey brows before adding hair strokes.
EYELINER PIGMENT SAMPLE
A mid-range and soft black due to it’s blend of carbon and iron oxide. I would recommend you don’t use this pigment on thin skin or where an obvious protrusion of veins is visible on the eyelids, and don’t mix it with anything else.
