Dark Walnut is an iron oxide base pigment. Viewed in the bottle, as well as when first tattooed into the skin, this color appears olive green. Dark Walnut will heal into a medium brown color. The olive green is necessary to compensate for the red undertones prevalent in some brown pigments. This modification reduces the risk of your client’s eyebrows turning pink. To test for a color tone and the depth of color, smear a dab on the client’s skin. Dark Walnut can be mixed with any of the eyebrow colors and with some of the camouflaging pigments. Some suggestions on color variations would be mixing in Taupe, Sterling Grey, Black Onyx, Jade or Moroccan, or combination of two of them or more.
Moroccan is an eyebrow choice for skin tones that are medium with an olive undertone. Its medium brown iron oxide provides its popularity. Although this formulation has some warmth in it, it is only less cool and is still dark.
Sterling Grey is an excellent color choice for eyebrows or eyeliners. This iron oxide and titanium oxide base color can be used on its own or mixed with browns such as Dark Walnut, Dark Chestnut, Taupe, or Black Onyx. Sterling Grey’s formulation of many different colors ensures that there will be no color changes in the skin. Depending on the skin’s undertones, Sterling Grey will heal into the skin as a dark/brown color. for the mature lady who does not want a black or dark brown eyebrow, a suggestion is to mix a couple drops of Sterling Grey with Taupe. A suggestion for an eyeliner on a mature lady would be Sterling Grey. To increase brown levels, mix Sterling Grey with Dark Walnut and Blending Gold.
Taupe is truly a must in every technician’s eyebrow spectrum of colors. Taupe is an iron oxide base pigment and can be used on its own for the lighter eyebrow.

Taupe will heal into the skin as a light, greybrown.
