What you'll learn in this beauty course:

​How is Microblading different than Machine Tattooing?

Microblading is not the same as cosmetic tattooing carried out using a machine. Microblade strokes lightly score the surface layers of the skin (Epidermis) while machine tattoos penetrate into the deeper layers (Dermis). The surface layers are renewed over time, so microblade strokes will naturally fade while pigment implanted by a machine will remain deep in the skin. Microblading therefore, can be a semi-permanent makeup technique. Follow-up appointments will be necessary to maintain the full effect. 

​So What Makes the Best Microblading Training?

You will firstly need to learn how to perform the treatment safely, how to avoid infection and cross-contamination; both for your client’s sake, and your own. How to identify contraindications and ensure that your client suffers no ill effects.

You will need to be able to design eyebrows that compliment and enhance your client’s face. 

Recognizing how the eyebrow affects our perception of face shape.

Color theory is a must, not only knowing how to match pigments, but recognizing skin undertones and understanding how they will affect color selection.

Last but not least, you will need expert instruction in the microblading procedure itself. From drawing a balanced and well proportioned template to implanting the pigment with the manual pen at the correct depth in the skin. Other aspects of manual brow tattooing such as pain management, skin stretching and aftercare must also be covered in sufficient detail to give you the confidence to get on and actually perform the procedure as soon as possible.

There are definitely a lot of options when it comes to semi-permanent/PMU makeup training so you might ask what makes our microblading course different?
  • Our Microblading Masterclass covers the A-Z of semi-permanent manual eyebrow tattooing over several days of intensive instruction.
  • You will get to perform your first treatment on a live model in the class, with every step supervised by a master eyebrow artist.

  • Class will be limited to 5 students to ensure you get individualized attention and support

  • Learn how to map the eyebrow and design
  • List of preferred suppliers
  • Sanitation requirements to avoid cross contaminations
