Color Corrections

When permanent makeup procedures end up with less than desirable colors, it is easy to place an additional color over the top to "correct" the problem. Colors follow a mathematical formula:
Blue + Red + Yellow = Brown
Problem: Blue Eyebrow
Correction: Orange = Brown Brow!
Selection: Amber. This orange color combines the red and yellow needed to repair the blue brow.
Problem: Purple Eyebrow (mauve or eggplant color)
Correction: Yellow = Brown Brow!
Selection: Warmer. This yellow color is strong enough to repair the purple brow.
Problem: Red Eyebrow (pink in color)
Correction: Green = Brown Brow!
Selection: Dark Ash Brown. This green based brow pigment will blend with the red to create a brown brow; you should also add 2 drops of green to a full well of dark ash brown.
Problem: Blue Lips
Correction: Orange. But this creates a fairly dark lip (leaning toward brown) that may be uneven in appearance,
Selection: Strawberry. This light pink color is heavy in titanium dioxide (white) which blocks the blue from showing through the skin.
How to prevent the blue lip from occurring? Prevention: Mix 1/3 true red into the original color, and that will neutralize the extra blue in the lip.
