We all know that working with skin is a big part of our job, and it can be tricky because everyone’s skin is different. It’s important to know that someone’s skin type can change how their permanent makeup looks once it’s healed.

Working with Oily and Large-Pored Skin

First, let’s talk about clients with oily skin or large pores. When you do microblading on this kind of skin, the results might look blurry. So instead of microblading, we can choose to do powder brows for these clients. And if the skin is not tight, the pigment might not stay as well. That’s why for these clients, some shading can really help. And guess what? Using a machine for hair strokes might work better than microblading for them.

Dealing with Sensitive or Thin Skin

Now, if the client has sensitive or thin skin, things can get a bit tricky. It might be more painful for them, and they might even bleed a little more than usual. In this case, it’s best to be really careful with the procedure, maybe even soak the pigment in longer or do some gentle shading. Also, be super careful not to go too deep with the needle, especially with thin skin, because no one wants those brows turning blue!

What to Do with Acne-Prone Skin

Clients with acne-prone skin are another story. Their skin is already trying to get rid of stuff it doesn’t want, and sometimes that means pushing out the pigment too. So the color might not stick as well. It’s often better to wait until their skin is in a better state before doing any permanent makeup.

Ideal Skin: Normal and Dry Types

If your client has normal skin – not too oily or dry – you’re in luck! This is the best skin type for any permanent makeup technique, and the color usually heals just as you’d expect. And for those with dry skin, the color will usually stay really well because there’s no oil to push it out.

Educating Your Clients is Key

It’s really important to talk to your clients before any procedure. Let them know what to expect based on their skin type. That way, they won’t be surprised by how it looks afterward.
