FAQ

What are the best colours to start with?

This will depend on the demographics of your client base, habing different skin tones to work with.

Generally, the 6 we recommend to start with are:

  • Sandalwood - Neutral lightest medium brown
  • Hazelnut - Neutral medium brown
  • Mochaccino - Good strength medium brown
  • Navajo Brown / Dark Toffee - For clients wishing to obtain a darker eyebrow (Fitzpatrick 4+)
  • Beautiful Blonde - Can be used to warm up lighter colours. Also good for clients who would like a blonde eyebrow rather than an ash blonde
  • Un-Grey Mod - Used to warm up the darker colours

What other colours would you recommend?

  • Classic Brown - A mid to darker ash brown. Great mixed with Beautiful Blonde to warm
  • Brow Mod - Used to correct salmon peach brows. Used neat
  • Olive Mod - A darker version of Brow Mod
  • Breve - A light semi ash blonde colour. This colour does not need any warmth
  • Pecan - Great for older clients who want a light taupe brow. Or a very ashy blonde
  • Taupe - A darker version of Pecan
  • Rich Brown - A new colour. Good for fitzpatrick 4+. Needs warming with Un-Grey Mod. Darker than Mochaccino. Slightly lighter than Navajo Brown

Are Li Pigments ok to use for Microblading?

Yes! Li Pigments are perfect for Microblading as they are a double concentrated formulation, and have a thick consistency. You can add a drop of vegetable glycerine if you wish to keep the pigment wetter longer, or would like to make it even thicker.

How do I correct ... ?

  • Salmon / Pink / Peach Brow - Brow Mod
  • Orange / Red Brow - Olive Mod
  • Purple / Red Brow - Yellow Olive Mod
  • Purple Brow - Non-Violet. Can add additional Yellow Gold
  • Light Grey Brow - Grey Vanish
  • Darker Grey Brow - Un-Grey Mod
  • Blue Brow - Recommend removal. The blue colour is too strong to be adequetely corrected with orange
  • Green Brow - Grey Vanish / Un-Grey Mod

Do you have any correction tips?

  • Always recommend the client has removal first, before offering correctional work. In most cases this is the best option and will free up space in the skin, so the skin can take a better colour that will last longer
  • To correct the colour, you would use these correctional colours neat 2 - 3 times
  • Keep in mind that if the brow to be corrected is a block of colour - hair strokes may not be an achievable outcome. In this case you can suggest to your client that you can use the correction colour as a powder effect and see how the colour comes back once you have covered the area. At the touch-up appontment you can assess if you can use a slightly darker colour to achieve a stroke over the corrected brow colour
  • In the case of lighter, salmon orange brows, sometimes it may not be necessary to correct the colour first if you are going to be using a darker colour than the one you are correcting
  • Take care to work inward to the inside of the brow not outwards, or you may spread the colour and give the brow a holo of the colour you corrected, making the brow larger because you would need to then correct the slight spread

Can I mix the range I already use with Li?

    No, you should never mix different ranges together. This is because the base colours of each range are different and you will not be able to accurately predict the outcome

Can I mix any range that is made by Li?

Yes, the different Li Pigment ranges share the same base colours. Therefore you should not have any unfortunate suprises when mixing the Li ranges together

Should I add a modifier to all the colours?

All the cool colours, yes. Some of the lighter colours may not need as much warmth because you will be using them on lighter fitzpatrick skin. I use the colour Beautiful Blonde or Autumn Gold (actual warm colours, not modifiers) to warm up some of the colours such as Pecan, Breve, Creme Latte and Latte. This makes them look less flat by giving them a little brightening boost. I may use Grey Vanish for the mid tones and Un-Grey Mod when I move on to the darker colours. The darker a colour, the more warmth it generally needs.

The warm colours like Beautiful Blonde, Autumn Gold, Milk Chocolate and Auburn do not need any additional warmth as they already have orange or red in their base and are warm already.

What is the difference between a modifier and a colour?

The Modifiers are more opaque than the colour, giving them more power to correct or warm / cool.

The colours are more translucent so do not have the same power as a modifier, but will still warm up the colours.

What is the lightest brow colour for microblading in the Li range?

In my opinion sandalwood would be the lightest colour to use. Some of the lighter colours - unless you are working on an older client or someone with thinner skin - would not take so well.

The colours are more translucent so do not have the same power as a modifier, but will still warm up the colours.

Can I mix my colours to make new tones and shade?

Yes absolutely! These colours all marry extremely well together. The yellow in the base is what gives these colours their harmonious blends. I love to use either Sandalwood or Hazelnut with some of the other colours. As they are neutral in their own bases they work very well to give great tones to some of the other colours. You can also use the warm colours to blend with cool colours instead of using modifiers! (see above)

When should I use dilutant?

You can add a dilutant such as SoftFX, Subtle Colours or even sterile water to dilute your pigments down, to give you a thinner consistency if you find they become too thick during the procedure. This sometimes happens when they become exposed to air and dry out a little.

Dilutant can also be used if you wish to dilute the strength of the colour down to create a soft powder wash or an Ombre brow. By doing this you will create more translucency and softness, but will retain the same colour.

By diluting a pigment to create a powder brow or an Ombre brow you take the strength of the coolness from the colour. If you are using a colour like Navajo Brown which is generally very cool if you dilute by 50%-75% you have taken away the need to add additional warmth because the colour will not have the same coolness and strength.

Should I add more warmth if I am Microblading?

Yes. Microbladed strokes tend to pull cooler so always add a little extra warmth, unless you're already using a warm colour.

What colour should I use for a red head?

Redheads have cooler skin types, so always ensure you use a warm colour such as Beautiful Blonde, Autumn Gold or Milk Chocolate. You can also mix with Sandalwood or Hazelnut to give different tones as these are both neutral colours.

Auburn should only be used in case of a very auburn client with brown eyes. Never use Auburn neat, always with an other colour. Beare of the red base in Auburn when using on lighter Fitzpatrick skin types.

Autumn Gold is a great colour for red heads although there is some red in the base, so if the client is very cool or ruddy beware as this can make the colour a light purple (Red + Blue = Purple).
