So What is Manual Shading?
The manual shading technique is where by pigment is placed into the dermis with a blade that does not involve an electric tool. The manual tool has a small disposable blade that has various needles, ranging from 7 pins to 23 pins. The needles are much finer than those used by an electric machine. The shading work is done with hand movements only which allows for depth control and ensures that the pigment isn’t deposited too deep into the dermis, creating a full and soft-looking brow.
