LUXE Correctors + Toners Highlight
Understanding Brow Toners and Correctors
Beautiful brows are anything but simple. It takes some SKILLS, plus time, dedication, and a few touch-ups here and there. Thankfully, touch-ups don’t have to be a pain in the… brows! Toners and Correctors are some of the most useful products in the PMU arsenal, but oftentimes artists haven’t heard of them or don’t know what to use them for! At Perma Blend, we don’t mind sharing industry secrets! Let’s take a seriously deep dive on how to neutralize brows with off-color undertones, how toners and correctors help with ashy brows, and where you can get these amazing products!
What Are Brow Toners and Correctors
Your client's brows decided to join a color party without an invite—blue, pink, purple, you name it. Enter the dynamic duo: Brow Toners and Correctors, the unsung heroes in the PMU world. Brows can be tricky, sometimes fading into undertones that make you do a double-take. That's where this duo really steps in, blending with or covering unwanted hues.
Take Limoncello, a toner from Perma Blend LUXE, for instance. This yellow-based toner swoops in to neutralize brows that healed into the purple or magenta zone. Voila! Violet is gone. Here’s another example: you have a client's brows that have leaned too cool and have some undertones that are looking frozen or winter blue. A warm orange corrector, like Perma Blend LUXE’s Papaya, is here to bring the heat. It neutralizes those cool undertones and adds a touch of warmth, bringing those brows back to their intended target shade of brown.
These processes help address a major problem: brow ashing. Brow ashing is when the pigments break down in the skin as the body processes the ink. Ashing can be caused by many factors, including technique. Everyone’s body reacts differently, and occasionally will target certain pigments. The results? The warmth is removed from the pigments, leaving their brows too blue or purple. Others remove the cooler tones, making them look too bright (and too orange or red).
Having the flexibility to correct or neutralize these issues as they appear is what makes Toners and Correctors so incredible.
Toners vs. Correctors: What’s the Difference?
While they share a mission – neutralizing those unexpected undertones – both Toners and Correctors go about it in different ways.
Imagine Toners as the smooth operators of the duo. They work subtly through your client's brows. Toners blend seamlessly with a less opaque formula (more see-through), created without titanium dioxide (white). Often, Toners are used to subtly alter the color of the entire brow to bring it to the right shade altogether.
Now, enter Correctors – the bold and direct option for PMU artists. Correctors mean business and are much more opaque (less see-through), using titanium dioxide (white) in their formulation. This opacity gives them serious coverage power, perfect for spot treatments or when you need to make a strong correction in a brow.
Experienced artists know it's not a toners-only or correctors-only game. It's the synergy between them that can really neutralize runaway undertones. Artists often combine the subtlety of Toners with the direct power of Correctors to do their best work.
Understanding how pigments manifest under the skin and heal is pivotal. These Toners and Correctors play a vital role in correcting and modifying the natural undertones in your client's skin, especially when considering cool, neutral, and warm skin tones.
