Microbeau team prepared questions for Elvire.
Let’s dig in!
1.How would you define B2B set in the context of permanent makeup pigments?
I think B2B is truly an answer to permanent make up longevity. I'm able to provide these pigments to students who might have some ambiguities at the start of their careers. These pigments don't last as long as pure organic pigments, but also they have better retention than pure inorganic pigments so it's really the best of both worlds.
2. What are the key advantages of using a B2B set compared to traditional pigments?
The biggest advantage is that it really adds the "semi-permanency" to permanent makeup. I love the fact that it feeds more I love the consistency in the colours the warmth and the colours I can mix all of these colours up. I never get greyish tones because it's just so well balanced and there's not a lot of carbon black or titanium.
3. Could you share some tips on selecting the right hybrid set for different skin tones and undertones?
The best tip that I can give is to swatch these pigments. Once you swatch all four pigments you'll notice some hues from the colour wheel! For example Gold Blonde is a beautiful pigment that I use on my Fitzpatrick 1 red heads as the undertone is a muted yet fiery orange brown. If I add Dark Blonde to the mix then I basically neutralize the pigment into a soft blonde-brown, which I can then use on a Fitzpatrick type 2 client. The sub-category of browns that can be created to fit every single client is what makes this set so incredible.
4. When it comes to application techniques, what are some effective strategies that artists should keep in mind while using different formulas of pigments?
I believe when it comes to application and pigment formulas, artists need to be mindful of the consistency of the pigment. Whether the pigment easily penetrates the skin or not. Some pigments I find that I need a dilution solution to be able to effectively penetrate my clients skin, and therefore have a better retention or also where the brows don't heal blocky. With B2B pigments I find that I do not. The consistency is there and the formulation is there as I also don't have to add any modifiers to the pigments for the healed results to remain a stable Brown.
5. Are there any specific aftercare instructions or precautions that clients should be aware of when they have had a procedure?
My perfect aftercare consists of dry healing. I tell all my clients whether they have dry skin, normal skin or oily skin to just not touch their eyebrows for the next two weeks no water no soap on them let them be, and I always get the best retention that way, sometimes the simple things do the trick and we don't have to complicate it.
6. In your experience, have you noticed any specific challenges or common mistakes that artists face when they do eyebrow procedure, and how can they be overcome?
The biggest challenge when you're performing an eyebrow procedure is always going to be brown mapping. One thing I noticed is when artists map completely away from the clients natural brown hair, although it may look beautiful, it might not be easy to maintain for the client. If the client is not able to upkeep that look, then it just ends up, looking crazy to say the least. Also, Brows symmetry is always going to be a thing. I found that over the years when you develop a simple technique and apply yourself over and over and over you eventually make less and less mistakes to a point where you're mad big and become near to perfect. Of course, Brows could never be identical, but the idea is to give it the illusion of twins haha.
7. Are there any additional products or tools that complement the use of a B2B set and enhance the overall results?
I would say just having the right cartridges so everything just flows. I've been using FYT needles.
8. Can you suggest any resources or platforms where artists can further expand their knowledge and stay updated on the latest developments related to pigments in PMU?
If you are not already, I would definitely highly recommend following Evenflo IG following Lulu account obviously, and following Prema blend pigments official website for any updates or latest developments in the PMU industry.
