Skin types

Microblading results may vary depending on your client’s skin type.


Normal Skin

The skin is well balanced – not too dry and not too oily. This skin doesn’t experience many breakouts or flakiness. Normal skin doesn’t tend to react negatively to weather changes or new skincare products.

Takes pigments very well and their healed results are usually good

Oily Skin

If your client has oily skin, it may leave them dealing with frequent breakouts or acne. Oily skin has a shiny appearance and feels greasy to the touch. People with oily skin have overactive sebaceous glands. They also tend to have larger pores.

Poor retention with lighter and patchier healed results

Combination Skin

Your client’s skin may have both dry and oily areas. He/she may experience oiliness on their t-zone and dryness on the cheeks.

Clients may have mixed results. Please refer to the dry skin type section

Dry Skin

The skin generally looks and feels dry and dehydrated. Dryness is caused by the lack of oil in the skin. Sometimes the skin may feel flaky, rough, scaly, itchy, or irritated. The skin may feel tight at times, and it may show small fine lines.

Great retention. May experiences dry patches and flakiness.

Mature Skin

Different from the other four types, namely without oil, without being dry and very soft. If you press and rub lightly it will turn red and become irritated.

Use caution with this skin. Don’t go too deep. Gradually build colour and do not over work.

Sensitive Skin

This skin may have wrinkles, deep lines, and dullness. Sagging, dark spots, and dehydrated skin.

Difficult to work with; treat skin like sensitive/acne-prone skin.
