NO WIRES, NO WOBBLE: Skinmaster 1200 Digital Precision

E-mail Print PDF

Skinmaster 1200
Call or click here to get more information about the cord-free SKINMASTER DIGITAL 1200.

New-Star-artIt's your choice! Work with or without wall power connection. Glamorous girl white backgroundNow you can enjoy complete freedom from cords yet have the dial-a-depth control you need for precision work. Eyeliner? You'll love the #5 round cartridge with Black Ice for no color loss. I've done many eyeliners which need no touch-up with the Skinmaster family of machines. The secret? Choose a lower to mid-speed power setting by the touch button on the handpiece and then set your needle depth quite shallowly to start. By this I mean less than a dime. Adjust depth if needed for best color implantation. Always adjust needle depth with the motor running on the machine. Do not overcharge the batteries or leave them on overnight to charge. There is a light indicator which will tell you when the battery is charged. The light changes from red to green. If you like to work with a cord, then just unscrew the battery and screw in the endpiece and attach the wall plug. Five power settings available.


Correct Color Changes Easily: Green Brows & Red Brows & Purple Brows

E-mail Print PDF


You'll agree, we've all seen and had brows that have changed color over time.  The original brown brows may change to colors such as pinkey, orangey, blue, purple, greenish or gray. Browns are made from blending several colors together. This is necessary as there is no pure brown pigment. Each color in the blend contributes to the final healed result and the faded color over time. The undertones of our client's skin plus their environment affects these changes. Someone in Florida who worships the sun or loves tanning beds will have accelerated color changes. Skincare products such as Retin A and Glycolic acid affect pigments as well. You don't see as many changes in areas where the sun doesn't shine much such as Alaska.

This is predictable because one characteristic of each pigment used is call light-fastness.  In other words, how fast does a pigment fade?  Some colors fade quickly and others more slowly.  Because some pigments fade more quickly than others a residual color becomes the dominant color visible and will need neutralizing or balancing.

Because pigments fade at different rates over time, the color that fades the fastest leaves the the slowest fading color or colors in the blend visible as the residual color.  This can be seen as a pinkey-orangey, purple, gray or green residual color. Because this happens in almost every brow over time, CORRECTIVE colors have evolved to control the undesired healed color.

GREEN BROW: In a green-based brown, the green is the last color to fade and may need to be balanced. The benefits of a green-based brow is that the resulting brow color is MRI safe. This is very important to some professionals and their clients. Here is a photo of a client with a slight greenish hue after 7 years. She didn't notice it but I did and I used hairstrokes with Auburn and Dream Nubrown. In some people there may be more green so you'll use Bubblegum or B2B Medium to neutralize the green.  Use it alone or with a desired color.


PINKEY, ORANGEY BROW: In a black-based brown, the black fades first and leaves a pinkey, orangey brow.   KOLORSOURCE pigments have brow colors with browns blended with either a black base or a green base. You can see on the Kolorsource chart whether a pigment has any ferromagnetic properties or not.  Black iron oxide is known as magnetite for its magnetic properties and can affect an MRI. A slight tingling or burning sensation may be felt by the patient when they have an MRI. No serious problems have occurred, however, according to the expert doctor at www.mrisafety.com.

BLUE/PURPLE BROWS: We have created B2B Medium to correct old "tattoo blue" or even purple brows.  B2B stands for "Blue-to-Brown".  All corrective colors used for balancing need 1-2 applications.  Question? Call 888-452-4946.

KOLORSOURCE Pigment Chart: You will see a PLUS + sign or a MINUS - sign next to each Kolorsource brow or eyeliner color on the laminated color guide. You can test your pigment bottles, no matter what manufacturer brand you use, with a magnet. You can pick up a magnet at your local hardware store to test your bottles of pigment. SEE FOR YOURSELF: Look for a Kolorsource brow color in the "Find Product" box and you'll be taken to the pigment which has the description plus 4 smears of the color to show the undertones (Warm, Neutral or Cool) and the effect of adding Bubblegum or Blooper or Neutral Flesh to the color.  Click here to see Dream NuBrown as an example.

Green or red brows are easily balanced.  Bubblegum will neutralize green brows and most green based NuBrown colors neutralize unwanted pinkey, orangey brows. Some manufacturers have modifiers that need to be added to their colors before you start to prevent them from ashing out or going green over time. Many Kolorsource professionals have learned to add Bubblegum to their NuBrown colors for this purpose. Feel free to call and ask questions. 888-452-4946. We're here to help guide you.

Perfect Purples give you a choice!

E-mail Print PDF

Purple is royal. It is beautiful. You'll see it on the eyelids of Oprah and Angelina. Kolorsource has made lasting purples for Eyeshadow (Plum Mist), Smokey Eye (Smudgy Grape), Butterfly Eye (Purple Suede) and Eye Accents (Pansy). Purple is a universal color for women no matter what their eye color is. For eyeshadow, I use the #36 handtool needle by Softap.  For Smudge/Smokey eye you can use a #5 Slope or a #18 round handtool by Softap. For Butterfly V-shape at the eyelid crease connecting to the upper eyeliner, I use a #1, 3 or 5 in the Skinmaster machine. Fill in the Horizontal V with Plum Mist.  Also, you can use Plum Mist to correct an eyeliner that is took thick... just tap over it.  The easiest way is to paint the color on with your Taklon fine-tipped makeup brush first and then dip and tap with your handtool or use a machine with a brushing motion. The eyelid bruises very easily so don't be concerned if they bruise even underneath the eye for a few days. We also have an eyeliner color by the name of Black Amethyst.  You can mix Pansy with most colors.  My favorite?  Purple Suede and Plum Mist. Thank you very much.  Dr. Dixon  PLUM MIST VIDEO CLICK HEREPurple bottles 4
