Changing the Darkness / Lightness of softap Colors
In this blog, we'll explore practical tips and techniques for effectively changing the darkness or lightness of Softap colors. Whether you need to modify the pigment itself or adjust a previous permanent makeup procedure, we've got you covered.
One of the things I like the most about the Softap colors is that they come ready to use, but if for any reason, you find the color is too dark or too light for your client's preferences, You can easily make adjustments, either to lighten or darken the pigment.
To change the darkness or lightness of a pigment:
To lighten a Softap color:
To lighten any color, you may add Lemon-Aid or little distilled water. Keep In mind that water will make any color lighter and more transparent.
Lemon-Aid is a yellow Softap color that allows the lightening of a color without changing its tonal value too much.
Avoid using white color to lighten Softap colors, as white is an opaque color, which does not allow the transparency of other pigments.
To darken any Softap color
1. Add a touch of Black Orchid to the color you are using. This will intensify the color while maintaining its tonal qualities.
2. Select a darker shade from the same color palette.
3. While doing the procedure, do more passes. When depositing color into the skin using a machine or hand device, the number of passes over the same area affects the darkness of the final result. Multiple passes will yield a darker outcome.
When your client desires a change in darkness or lightness for their existing permanent makeup, follow these guidelines:
Let's see the different scenarios.
- The color is brown, and the client likes the shade but lighter.
Apply Lemon Aid. You don't need to add any other color.
- The color is brown, and the client likes the shade but darker.
Select a color in the same palette but darker.
- The color changed, and the client wants a lighter color; it may need several sessions to get the desired color.
During the first session, apply the correction aid and let it heal.
During the following session, use the desired color if the color is lighter and balanced. If it is not neutralized, apply the correction aid and the desired color on top.
- The color changed, and the client wants a darker color.
Follow the guide for neutralizing the tone, and apply the correction aid color and the desired color during the same session.
Apply the correction aid color by doing one or two passes with five taps in each place.
Apply the desired color according to the desired effect and darkness.
I hope that what I do, inspires you for your next Procedure!
