GenuLine, the Softap Needles fro Microblading

The best technique to create defined individual hairs

Softap Permanent Cosmetics always at the forefront in the most natural techniques and applications of permanent makeup. That is why it has designed the special GenuLine needles to perform hair-to- and give a natural 3D effect to the eyebrows.

  • The tips designed for this effect are very thin and deposit the pigment in a uniform way to obtain very well defined hairs.
  • This is a precise Method
  • The needles are flexible enough not to hurt the skin and at the same time strong enough to deposit the pigment with a lasting effect.
  • Various sizes of needles to use depending on the size of eyebrows.
  • 100% disposable and pre-sterilized


Techniques and Styles in Permanent Makeup have seen constant evolution. Since I started with Permanent Makeup back in 1994, I have seen many trends. But nothing comes close to what we now call Microblading.


This technique focuses on the design of individual hairs, which has the potential to create natural and beautiful looking eyebrows. 


Designing and tracing the hair in an easy way, simulating the direction of natural hair.

When I do individual hair strokes using The Microblading Technique I keep in mind the shape and size of the needles, the eyebrow design, and the right color. This combination guarantees me that I will have the best possible result. 


The needles I use:

Since the hairs of the eyebrows have several sizes and diameters, for me it is important to have different needles.

      • 6 fine to make the smaller and thinner hairs
      • 6 regular tips for small and thicker hairs
      • 16 fine for fine and hairs
      • And, 14 curved tips for longer and thicker hairs.
      Combining the use of these, I achieve the most natural effect in permanent makeup.

      How I design the hairs:

      The main characteristic of this effect is that it looks natural. 

      For people who do not have hairs on their eyebrow: I use 6 needles to make the individual hairs with The Microblading Technique, and then  I use 14 curved needles to do an effect using The Softap Technique. This way, I give greater volume and definition to her eyebrows.


      When my client has little hair the tail of her eyebrows and wants to lengthen them, I follow the natural direction of the hairs to get the most natural result. If she has no hair in that area, I design the hairs towards the side or slightly upwards, to give greater expression to her face.


      When she simply wants to fill her eyebrows to give better volume, I follow the natural direction of her hair, doing an exact mimic to achieve greater naturalness.




      The colors I use:

      With Softap colors, I can achieve the naturalness that I want when I perform this technique. I choose the color that most resembles the natural eyebrow of my client.


      This is the guide I use:

      For skin type 1. Green eyes, light skin, and reddish hair and eyebrows) I use a warm color like Caramel, Milk Chocolate, Bordeaux; in some cases, I use Cocoa or Copper.


      If she has skin type 2 (Blue eyes, blonde hair, blond eyebrows, and light skin) I use neutral colors like Bashful Blonde, Hazelnut, Fawn or cold colors like Champagne or Mink.


      For people with skin type 3. Honey or light brown eyes, light skin, dark blonde hair and eyebrows, I use Fawn, Cappuccino or  Café Vienna blended with Brown Sugar in a 9:1 proportion


      For skin type 4 people, with dark skin, brown eyes, and dark brown eyebrows and hair, I usually use Earth blended with Eclair Chocolate,   Expresso blended with Eclair Chocolate in a 9:1 proportion


      For people with skin types 5 and 6 with darker skin, black eyes, black eyebrows and hair, usually use Mahogany.


      I hope what I do will inspire you for your next Microblading procedure.
