What do you mean visible shade? Like as in the shave isn't close enough? Are you using an electric razor? If so use a blade, smooth like silk problem solved. If thats not what you mean by visible shade describe it.

Do it slow and not on the first pass. Down first then against the grain after.

Less blades. Safety razor, and 3 to 4 passes. Don't go for taking it all off at once, treat it as beard reduction. Each time you take off a bit more. First pass, with the grain. Second pass, cross grain. Third pass, against the grain. Last pass, touch up. Always rinse and re apply shaving cream.

Also, dont need a safety razor, but a decent razor will do with what I've posted.
