Is Permanent Makeup Right for Me?

In the early 1900s, permanent makeup became a movement where women would tattoo their cheeks to achieve a rosy pink complexion. Over time the technique of permanent makeup was formed and spread throughout the world. Today, permanent makeup has evolved as a way for people of all ages to perfect their imperfections or save time on their daily makeup routine. Many factors go into permanent makeup; this guide will help you decide whether or not it is right for you.

What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup and cosmetic tattooing have become a revolutionary cosmetic technique, which involves using a pen containing a mixture of iron oxide to leave permanent pigmentation in the skin’s dermis. The fine needle on the pen makes many tiny perforations to the skin to resemble makeup. Technicians can apply permanent makeup to the lips, eyelids, and eyebrows. Your permanent makeup technician will guide you through the entire process, from mapping the area to your specific preference to giving you healing instructions and following up on the results. 

Should I Try Permanent Makeup?

There are many reasons why you should try permanent makeup: unsteady hands, medical reasons to add pigmentation, or you live a busy life preventing you from achieving your makeup goals. If any of those are true permanent makeup may be your solution. Getting permanent makeup does not precisely mean getting a permanent tattoo. Permanent makeup uses pigments like iron oxides with water and glycerine, while tattoos inject ink into the skin. During your appointment, you will find the procedure is very painless as numbing cream is applied. View our contradictions for new clients to see if you are an eligible candidate.

Types of Permanent Makeup

Over the last few decades, the design for permanent makeup has evolved as we keep up with the latest fashion and trends. The updated approach to permanent makeup combines reformulated pigments with more delicate blades to create a more natural-looking result. Today, there is a wide range of permanent makeup services that cover areas on the face and body to replace traditional makeup.

Permanent Lip Makeup

Lip blushing enhances the color, shape, symmetry, and fullness of the lips. Lip blushing is customizable and creates an effortless soft tint to the lip.

Permanent Eyeliner

Your PMU technician can place permanent eyeliner makeup on the top and bottom of your eye. This tattoo applies ink along the lashline to create the appearance of eyeliner. To customize your look, consider if you want a thin liner to enhance your lashes or a thick winged liner for everyday perfection.

Permanent Eyebrow

There are various permanent eyebrow techniques and styles. The most popular trend is microblading, which is a technique that mimics natural hair strokes on the eyebrows. Additionally, powder brows, combo brows, and 3D microblading are more options that create defined and well-blended brows.
