Needles for your Micropigmentation Service

Spring has Sprung!

It’s time to purge through your clutter and find ways to work smarter, not harder. In the makeup community, that means less is more. 2018 is the year for achieving the perfect “no-makeup” makeup look, and top beauty brands are emphasizing the look through natural liner, brow gels, and undetectable lip colors. You would think that this will curtail your daily routine, but it is, in fact, more work to achieve natural beauty than having a full face of makeup. This is where micropigmentation technicians have the greatest opportunity to give clients the best of both worlds.

Micropigmentation services have an expanded range of eyebrows, eyeliners, and lips, giving your clients options for their look and what process they want to cut out of their routine. As a PM technician, it’s best to give service options for each feature on the face, and having a variation in your tools is the key to your success in the industry.

Nouveau Contour’s industry leading needles offer precision and ease for performing your services. When choosing your needles, you should not only take into consideration the size of the pigmentation, but also the desired effect you want to achieve.  Let’s look at a few of our NC needles that will accomplish your client’s desired look while ensuring long-term results for your micropigmentation service.
