Ever wondered how Eye Design’s technicians choose the right shade pigment for their clients every single time? I trained them to always consider the Fitzpatrick Scale when going through the process with the client.
This foolproof guide is used by health professionals to determine the risk of skin cancer and other skin conditions, by techies to develop an inclusive range of emojis and by beauticians (like us!) to assist in making our clients confident and happy.
The Fitzpatrick Scale helps us differentiate among six different skin shades. Per Healthline:
Fitzpatrick skin type 1
Fitzpatrick skin type 2
Fitzpatrick skin type 3
Fitzpatrick skin type 4
Fitzpatrick skin type 5
Fitzpatrick skin type 6
When I was developing Eye Design’s six mineral-based Microblading Pigments (Caramel, Cappuccino, Coffee, Chocolate, Dark Chocolate and Espresso), of course I kept the Fitzpatrick Scale in mind! Depending on the client’s desires (i.e., how subtle or how bold she wants her new brows), each pigment can fit a range of Fitzpatrick skin types.
Caramel works for clients who are a 1 or 2; Coffee is best on a 3, 4 or 5; Chocolate, our most universal pigment, is slightly warmer than Coffee, but also works best on a 3, 4 0r 5; Dark Chocolate targets the 4-5-6 range; Espresso was designed with all our 5 and 6 clients in mind.
