I have had permanent makeup tattooed on my eyebrows for years now, and I love it. The question I get asked the most is, “did you shave off all your eyebrow hair?” No, I still have hair on my brows. I even wax them to maintain a clean look. I had my brows tattooed to fill in areas that were a little sparse, and give a nice shape, the same way you would use a brow pencil. The biggest difference is, it looks more natural, it doesn’t wash off, and when I wake up my brows are done!
Permanent cosmetic makeup is cosmetic tattooing elevated to the highest artistic level. Permanent make up can help give you back what time has taken away, and help to enhance your natural look. Permanent make up is not necessarily intended to replace cosmetics completely, because the color is placed “in” the skin and not on the skin, so a more natural, softer look results after the skin has healed. Permanent make up makes it possible to look better round the clock and be less self conscious. When you look better you feel better! It is a great time saver, perfect for active outdoor lifestyles, sensitive skin, and clients with contacts, glasses or difficulty applying make up.
Contemporary micropigmentation techniques are used in eyelash enhancement, the creation or enhancement of eyebrows, eyeliner, and permanent lip liner or full lip color. Also available are advanced techniques for areolar reconstruction and the application of beauty marks. Some maintenance may be needed to keep color fresh, a touch-up every year- or-so, is recommended.
