WAKE UP TO MAKE-UP!!!

What is Permanent Makeup? Permanent cosmetic makeup is an aesthetic procedure similar to tattooing, designed to benefit anyone who wishes to have a natural enhancement to their appearance without the use of makeup. Some of the other names this process is known by include micro-pigmentation, derma graphics, or micro-pigment implantation. It can be used for eyebrows, eyeliner above and below eyelashes, lip lines, full lip color, scar camouflage, beauty marks, or as an imitation of hair. Many people also choose permanent makeup for hiding burns, covering scars following surgery, replacing pigment lost from vitiligo, reconstructing areolas, or redefining weak facial features. Those who are extremely physically active but want to maintain a better appearance can do so with permanent makeup. It is especially beneficial for people who suffer from makeup allergies and can’t wear traditional cosmetics.

To produce the desired results, permanent makeup usually requires one or more touch-up procedures after initial application. For this reason, most technicians include the price of a touch-up procedure in the price of the application. Initial permanent makeup application typically takes one to two-and-a-half hours to complete, and touch-ups take significantly less time.


How is Permanent Makeup performed? During cosmetic implantation, tiny individual implants of pigment are deposited into the dermal layer of the skin. There are several methods used today, including the traditional tattoo machines, the pen or rotary machine and the manual or hand method.


How much does Permanent Makeup hurt? Because of the nature of the permanent cosmetics procedure, some patients may experience some discomfort according to their pain tolerance. There are many ways of reducing discomfort.


Permanent Eye Makeup: Permanent eye makeup can be applied in a variety of ways to help enhance the eyes. Permanent eye liner can be applied to line both the top and bottom lids, to create a soft look, a defined line, or anything in between.


Permanent Eyebrow Makeup: Permanent makeup can be applied to create the appearance of hair and is often used to define, shape, and fill in sparse areas of the eyebrows. Permanent eyebrow makeup can also be used to create the look of a full pair of eyebrows for people who have lost all of their facial hair, often due to chemotherapy or other medical conditions. An experienced technician can produce the appearance of individual eyebrow hairs and create a natural look.


Permanent Lip Makeup: If you are tired of reapplying lipstick throughout the day, or you are dissatisfied with thin or crooked lips, permanent lip makeup can create fuller, more defined lips. You can pick a shade that matches your favorite lipstick, or a neutral shade for a natural look. Both permanent lip liner and lipstick can be applied in a variety of colors. If a more natural color is used, lipstick color can still be applied, and the permanent lip makeup will prevent color from bleeding. When a vivid shade is applied, all that is needed is a subtle lip gloss to enhance the lips.

Permanent lip makeup can add fullness, balance crooked or uneven lips, and even minimize the appearance of wrinkles around the lips. However, caution should be taken when having permanent makeup applied to create fuller lips, as color that extends beyond the natural outer edge of the lips can create undesirable results.
