If there’s one category of PMU supplies that every serious artist pays special attention to, it’s the pigments.
The range and quality of the pigments you use directly determine how natural the results will look and the level of customer satisfaction you can deliver.
That’s why the best brands will provide artists accurate color charts along with every new pigment line. You can use these to pick the best hue for every client.
PMUHub took a closer look at the Brow Daddy color chart for their Gold Collection and how you can use it to improve your PMU process. Let’s dive right in!
A Bit About Brow Daddy Pigments
A well-known name in the industry, the Brow Daddy pigment line has an army of fans.
The brand’s founder, Ruben “Brow Daddy” Kasper, is famous for his signature ombre powder brow technique. The brand itself has a strong reputation for a range of permanent makeup products, tints, and most especially pigments.
Brow Daddy pigments are made by Perma Blend. This manufacturer is known for formulas that heal well, provide realistic results, and can be easily mixed and matched into shades that match each individual client.
Now Brow Daddy and Perma Blend teamed up to bring you the luxurious Gold Collection. It’s a range of gorgeous blonde and brunette pigments suitable for all brow PMU techniques.

Brow Daddy Color Chart Explained
Learn about each pigment’s hue, undertone, value, opacity, and the corresponding Fitzpatrick skin phototype.
Iced Caramel is a light blonde pigment with a cool yellow undertone. It has high opacity and although the undertone is slightly cool, its mass tone is neutral, so the overall shade remains light.
This color should be used on clients who have the Fitzpatrick skin type 1, 2, or 3.
In other words, Iced Caramel looks great on red-haired and fair-haired people with pale skin, as well as people with light brown skin and medium-toned hair.
It’s particularly great for tans that naturally have cool or slightly yellow undertones.
Berry Blonde is a medium blonde pigment with a warm orange/yellow undertone.
It also has high opacity and its mass tone is warm, matching its undertone. The overall shade of this pigment looks medium to dark blonde.
According to the Brow Daddy pigment chart, this color should be used on clients who have the Fitzpatrick skin type 3 or 4.
That means Berry Blonde suits people who have medium blonde to medium brown and brown hair, and a skin color with somewhat warm undertones: light brown and moderate brown, i.e. naturally olive tans.
Golden Goddess is a medium blonde pigment with a slightly warm yellow undertone.
Like the other blonds, it has high opacity. Its mass tone is warm which, with the slight warmth of the yellow undertone, results in medium to dark blonde overall shade.
The Brow Daddy pigment chart recommends using this color on clients who have the Fitzpatrick skin type 1, 2, or 3.
In other words, just like Iced Caramel, Golden Goddess looks great on people with red and fair to medium-toned hair and naturally cool, pale to average white skin tones, potentially with slightly cool yellow undertones.
Bronzite is a medium brunette pigment with a neutral yellow undertone. Unlike the previous pigments, it has medium opacity. Its mass tone is warm. It’s overall a dark brown shade.
The Brow Daddy pigment chart recommends using this color on clients who have the Fitzpatrick skin type 3 or 4.
That’s to say that Bronzite looks great on people with medium blonde to medium brown and brown hair, and light brown to olive skin with slightly warm undertones, just like Berry Blonde.
Dark Teddy is likewise a medium brunette pigment with a neutral yellow undertone. Unlike Bronzite, it has high opacity. Both its mass tone and undertone are yellow and neutral. Dark Teddy is overall a medium brown shade.
This color suits clients who have the Fitzpatrick skin type 2 or 3 according to the Brow Daddy pigment chart.
In other words, Dark Teddy is suitable for fair-haired people with fair, but not very pale skin featuring cool or somewhat yellow undertones, and those with light brown tans with slightly warmer undertones.
Truffle Dream completes the trio of medium brunette pigments with neutral yellow undertones in the Brow Daddy color chart. It has high opacity, like Dark Teddy, but is suited to Fitzpatrick skin types 3 or 4, like Bronzite and Berry Blonde.
Truffle Dream’s mass tone is neutral, but its yellow undertones appear slightly warm, so the overall shade is a medium ash brown.
Similarly to Berry Blonde and Bronzite, the Truffle Dream pigment nicely complements medium blonde to medium brown and brown hair, and light brown to olive skin with slightly warm undertones.
Brouge is a medium-dark brunette pigment with a very warm orange/red undertone. Unlike all the pigments we previously covered, it has low opacity. Its mass tone is strongly red, and the undertones appear noticeably orange.
As a result, Brouge is overall a warm, dark brown shade.
This color is recommended for clients who have the Fitzpatrick skin type 3, 4, or 5, marking a shift towards the darker Fitzpatrick phototypes in the Brow Daddy Gold Collection color chart.
In addition to the skin tones and hair colors we covered with Berry Blonde, Bronzite, and Truffle Dream, Brouge looks great on people with medium-dark, richly brown skin.
The Fitzpatrick type 5 covers a wide variety of skin undertones, so the coolness or warmth of the pigment will have to be customized to each client.
Schokolade is a dark brunette pigment with slightly warm orange undertones. It has low opacity like Brouge, but differs in that its mass tone is clearly cool. Combined with slightly warm undertones, the result is an overall dark brown shade.
Schokolade continues the palette into darker skin phototypes according to the Brow Daddy pigment chart. It’s suited to people with the Fitzpatrick skin types 4, 5, or 6.
So if your client has olive-toned, medium-dark brown, or dark brown to black skin, and naturally dark brown to black hair, Schokolade could be the ideal choice for them.
Tokyo Black is also a dark brunette pigment, but the undertone is yellow and neutral, or slightly cool. Just like Brouge and Schokolade, it has low opacity.
The mass tone of Tokyo Black is quite cool, which makes its undertones appear slightly warmer and more orange-like to the naked eye.
This results in a dark overall shade which appears dark brown to black. It’s ideally suited to people with the Fitzpatrick skin type 4, 5, or 6.
If you have a client with olive, brown, or black skin and dark or black hair, but the Schokolade pigment isn’t quite working for them, consider Tokyo Black as an alternative.
But in most cases, you’ll be mixing Tokyo Black to darken up the rest of the shades, not using it on its own.
Honey Magic is unique on the Brow Daddy Gold Collection color chart in that it can be both a standalone pigment and a modifier for the rest of the collection.
It’s a medium red with a very warm orange/red undertone and medium opacity.
Honey Magic has great warmth in both its mass tone and the undertones. The result is a lovely ginger color which is ideally suited to people with the Fitzpatrick skin type 2, 3, or 4.
Consider using this color in a pigment blend for a client with white, light brown, or olive skin and red, fair, medium blonde, or light to medium brown hair.

Brow Daddy Color Chart Final Notes
Color charts are great starting points for choosing the right shade for your clients, but in reality, people never fall neatly into any categories, so pigment selection should never follow rules blindly.
In action, PMU pigments are often mixed for custom shades that meet the expectations of the client and the needs of their skin. Brow Daddy pigments can be custom-mixed, so the possibilities are truly endless!
