Here’s a case of a client with mature skin. In this case, my client wanted new brows that had the high-arch look that she had been drawing for years. Usually, I do not recommend this type of design, but during her consultation, we drew them on and not only did they look great, it was exactly how she drew them herself (but better) and that level of familiarity made her very happy.
This client was an exciting challenge as she had no existing hair, allowing us to create any brow shape and design that she wanted. If you ever find yourself in this situation make sure you err on the side of caution and do something you know that he/she will be comfortable with.
Since she was blonde and mature, we went for a medium definition colour, which is not too light nor too dark. We selected a colour for my Tina Davies x Perma Blend pigment range, called MEDIUM BROWN. It’s not too dark and not too light - a great starter colour that is safe and easy to darken by adding a bit of pencil. It also makes a great starting point for when she returns for the follow up appointment, and wants a little more definition next time. I find this colour is safe and conservative when you (and your client) don’t want to overdo it the first time around.
When working with mature skin, it often is thinner as well, so ensuring your colour selection is conservative and is important, as thinner skin will often retain pigment better as well. Pressure will also be very important, as the thinner the skin the lighter the pressure you should have, ESPECIALLY at the tails of the brows, where you can see more veins.
It is important to always assess your clients wants and needs in the consultation to help you determine what you need to do to achieve that for them. You do not necessarily have to tell them everything you will be doing, as this can often leave them confused and unsure.
I find it is best to get a really strong idea of what they want to achieve and simply tell them “I can do that for you, no problem” and make the best decision for them based on your expertise. You can read more about my top 6 tips for client happiness here.
