New online class: Microblading for dark skin

Have you had a chance to check out our online classes? We currently have two courses available for experienced technicians, in English, Spanish and Russian! Microblading For Dark Skin is essential for all eyebrow artists and will help you expand your client base.

Last month the Eye Design University team proudly launched our online classes. Tips, tricks and techniques directly from our founder and Master Tech Nadia are now available at your fingertips (on mobile and on desktop)! While we have a bunch of online courses in the works (including those for beginners), certain courses for experienced technicians are ready to go.

Microblading For Dark Skin is an important topic for all beauty professionals to learn, especially for those who are not yet catering to a diverse range of clients. With proper training, microblading can be a semi-permanent eyebrow solution for nearly all skin tones and undertones. However, there are key factors to keep in mind when you are working on dark skin tones.

For example, those with dark skin typically have thicker skin as well. This affects how deep the technician must insert the blade. When working with dark skin, technicians must also learn the details that play a role in how the pigment may look after the healing process.

Everything you need to know is included in one of our first-ever online classes. Microblading For Dark Skin is available in English, Spanish and Russian. It is easy to use and accessible worldwide! We want technicians (and aspiring technicians) everywhere to receive an Eye Design University education.

To prepare you for clients and models with dark skin, our online course contains a variety of helpful materials.

  • 9 videos with detailed, in-depth information straight from Nadia in our Fifth Avenue studio… Listen to her lectures and watch her work!
  • 6 hands-on home assignments to practice + perfect your knowledge and drawing skills
  • All home assignments are monitored by our staff! You can reach out to your instructors if you have any questions or need guidance from Eye Design.
  • Tons of animations, drawings and charts to enhance your understanding

Once you purchase the course, you can return to it as many times as you would like to refresh your skills! Microblading For Dark Skin also includes the information you need to know for using the manual Powder Effect (microshading) on deep skin tones. With certain clients, this may be necessary between hair strokes to create a more realistic effect. Similarly, many clients may request a little Powder Effect based on personal preference!

Microblading professionals should be able to work with virtually any client who wishes to undergo this life-changing procedure. It is in your best interest to learn microblading for all skin tones, skin types and ethnic backgrounds. This will allow you to grow your customer base and earn more income.

Few microblading studios in the world can successfully produce results that heal beautifully on dark skin. In fact, many of our clients with dark skin tell us they chose Eye Design because we show before-and-after photos of such cases on our website and social media. Eye Design is proud to serve a wide variety of clients in one of the most diverse cities in the world!

Because of our prime location in the heart of Manhattan, our technician have years of experience working with clients from all over the world. We are equipped to handle almost any case, and we cannot wait to share what we have learned with you!
