Learn the latest powdered brow and combination techniques from the #1 permanent makeup studio in Southern California.

These are the same techniques used by our artists everyday in our studio—we hold nothing back and reveal the secrets to the beautiful brows we share everyday on our popular Instagram.

This class is for working PMU artists ready to learn the MLA method to powdered brows and combining powdered brows with microblading.

Hands on Experience in a Working Permanent Makeup Studio

You will work side-by-side with Lindsey Ta practicing our techniques using a microblade and PMU device on fake skin. She will study your work and answer your questions in our small class setting. You’ll work on your live models, with Lindsey and the MLA team as your guides.

Who Is This Class For?

This is for working artists eager to serve new clients! These techniques are perfect for clients with oily skin or combination skin in the t-zone. With oily skin, microblading hair strokes will not be suitable—that’s where the techniques you’ll learn in this class come in.

We introduce you to the PMU device. Then we’ll go right into our step-by-step techniques for a full powdered brow and finally a shading + microblading combination brow.
