The Gift of Perfectly Mapped Brows: Shaping & Pre-Draw Tools

In the hands of a skilled PMU artist, tools aren’t simply devices, but wands used to create magic. Having a set of tools you heavily rely on is a good way to discover new techniques and evolve. So, let’s get started with our top picks!

Peel Off Brow Pencils Kit from Biotek

The illusion of perfect brows and lips usually starts with a crisp outline, so every permanent makeup artist needs to have all the pre-draw and mapping tools needed to create it.

This Christmas, gift yourself or your PMU loved one this peel-off pencil kit from Biotek Milano that contains 4 different shades for brow and eyeliner mapping. Such a simple but effective gift, isn’t it?

PhiAcademy White Marker Pen

No PMU artist’s tool gear is complete without a white mapping pen. It’s such a simple but powerful instrument that makes the magic come to life, permanently.

The PhiAcademy White Marker Pen is as white as snow and will make your holiday pre-draws even better.

If you want to get your eyebrow measuring to the next level, then the Phi BB Compass will be your or your PMU loved one’s best friend!

It helps you measure someone’s eyebrows or lips with precision in just a few seconds while preserving the golden ratio. It’s perfect for both beginners and experienced artists and a handy tool to use every day of the year.

The Gift of Painless Beauty: Numbing Products

In the world of PMU, it is important to create a comfortable, safe space for clients, especially those who have sensitive skin and a low pain threshold. Elevate your numbing game or your loved one’s with the gift of topical anesthetic creams!

Zensa Numbing Cream

Whichever treatment your favorite PMU artist offers, a simple gift that will eliminate the discomfort of needles will surely be appreciated, so why not opt for the best possible formulation?

The Zensa numbing cream is a reliable, fast-acting, and intense topical anesthetic made for pre-numbing and secondary numbing, meaning, the client is guaranteed a completely painless experience. Now, this is a gift that keeps on giving.

Ultra Duration Numbing Liquid

Oh, happy days! The Ultra Duration Numbing Liquid is a fan-favorite numbing creme that guarantees smooth sailing during microblading and PMU.

A guaranteed way to ensure your client stays pain-free, this is a fast-absorbing option that provides immediate relief!

Tag 45 Numbing Gel

Tattooing sensitive, broken skin is always tricky for both the artist and the client. Many artists love the Tag 45 Numbing Gel because of its convenience and effectiveness.

It’s suitable for use on all skin parts, including the most sensitive ones like the areola.

The Gift of Precise Strokes: Tattooing Machines

Speaking of magic, machines are the part of the kit that turns an artist’s vision into reality. A professional PMU machine is an essential tool and a luxury gift as well.

Choosing the right one can be overwhelming, especially if you are buying it for someone else, so here are some of our faves!

Spektra Xion S PMU Machine

For those who want to spend a bit less but get something just as good as the Bellar Air, we recommend checking out the Microbeau Xion S.
