What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup, also known as cosmetic tattooing, is a technique that deposits pigment into the skin. Unlike traditional tattoos, permanent makeup uses specialized pigments and techniques to create subtle enhancements that resemble makeup.

Types of Permanent Makeup Procedures:

There are several popular types of permanent makeup procedures, each targeting a specific feature:

  • Eyebrows : This is a popular choice for those with sparse brows, uneven brows, or who simply want to save time filling them in every day ⏰.

  • Eyeliner : Permanent eyeliner can create a defined lash line, making your eyes appear brighter and fuller.

  • Lip Blush : Lip blush adds a subtle wash of color to the lips, enhancing their natural shape and giving the appearance of fuller lips.

  • Other procedures: Permanent makeup can also be used for hairstroke techniques on the scalp for those experiencing hair loss, or for reconstructive purposes like nipple and areola reconstruction following mastectomy surgery.

Benefits of Permanent Makeup:

There are several advantages to considering permanent makeup:

  • Wake Up Ready to Go! Save time in your morning routine by eliminating the need to apply makeup every day ☀️.

  • Enhanced Confidence : Permanent makeup can subtly define and improve features, boosting your confidence ✨.

  • Water-resistant and Smudge-proof ‍♀️: No more makeup meltdowns during workouts or on hot days.
