How to Use Pigment Colors 

By Dr. Lisa Z. Lam

BioTouch pigments can be used alone or mixed to match your client’s skin tone for eyebrows, eyeliner and lip. Follow these general guidelines before using:

MP = Micro Pigment

MB = Microblading pigment

PW = Rose line  powdery lip

PU =  Pure line

  • Do not mix pigments of different brands. 
  • Shake well each time before use. 
  • Never touch pigment bottles or pigment containers with contaminated gloves to prevent cross contamination.

 Usage and color processing

Since the naked eye cannot see the natural undertones of an individual's human skin, we can only select and use pigments based on the visual visibility evaluation and the pigments are also made of a variety of mixed shades . When doing a procedure the pigment enters the inner skin  Unpredictable changes will appear and become another comprehensive color. The most common color change is the blueish or excessively reddish, or even purple, orange, pink and other comprehensive colors in between. So in this  Under the natural law, pre-add color under the experience of using pigment-prevent discoloration, or wait on the color that appears after healing, to neutralize or correct the color deviation as needed.


Chocolate Brown (MP): Use on medium to dark skin-toned clients. Add Light Brown to achieve a softer look. 

Espresso (MP): A Darker warm shade brown for dark skin tones. 

Gray (MP): A good match for people with salt and pepper gray hair. Add Taupe for softer look

  • This mixture (Gray+Taup) is my favourite colour for salt and pepper gray hair clients. 

I also use this colour for very bright reddish eyebrow correction(add at least 60% distilled water to dilute).

Dark Brown (MP): Warm base Dark brown Lighter than Chocolate Brown, can be used on all skin tones, but mostly used on dark to medium brown skin tones

True Cocoa (MP): Ash base dark brown . different from the Dark Brown of the wam base, True Coco stay in more cooler dark brown without reddish tone.

Brown (MP): Mostly used on redheaded clients because of the warm red tone base. If the skin has a lot of yellow tones, this color will turn too warm.

True Brown (MP): An  Ash base. Stay in cooler brown color, different from the warm base Brown ,It is an true ash base brown. 

Light Brown (MP): warm base lighter brown used for light skin tones. Add Yellow or Taupe for a more blonde look. Avoid to use on the yellow skin tone my change slightly too reddish 

  • It’s very good for lighter skin tones. Because the ash base prevents eyebrow turn to orange in the future.

  • There are a few basic principles behind choosing the right lip color for your Client:

    1. Choose a color that is redder than their natural lip, that way, the color will show through their natural tone. The color should provide contrast or highlight to the original lip tone.
    2. Avoid using pigments that are too similar to the Client’s lip color, it will blend into the lip and will not produce the best desired results.
    3. For darker lips, you must use a brighter color. You may also apply Cream Rose or Beige Pigment as the primer first, then add the desired colors after. The best option for darker lips is warm colors like Chicago Rose, Flaming Rose, and Fuchsia Rose. Generally, soft colors are not suitable for Clients with darker natural lips. For example, we avoid using cold colors like Pink Rose or Berry Rose for the dark lips color.
    4. Blush Rose or mixing it into other colors is the best option for natural-looking lips. One of our most popular colors for mixing is Blush Rose.

    The procedure process to apply the Rose Line Lip Series should be done through

     Powdery Shading and Ombré techniques. It consists of very gentle and quick swipes of the Digital 1 prong needle to create multiple thin layers of pigment on the lip.

    Powdery Rose Lip line Selection:

    Cream Rose

    This is our lightest color. Its purpose is to be added to the middle of the lips to achieve a highlight effect. This is done on top of the finished lip procedure to achieve an overall sexy and sensual appearance.

    Clients with Purplish or Brownish natural lip colors usually require a more complicated procedure. First, use Cream Rose as the base color (optional Beige pigment), and then cover up the pigment with layers of Chicago Rose, Flame Rose, or/and Fuchsia Rose to neutralize the darkness of their natural lip color.

    Cream Rose can also be used for clients who wish to go with a lighter color but their natural lip color is not light enough. Cream Rose should be used as a primer.
