Who Benefits Most from Permanent Makeup?

Written by: dominick Date of published: .

Permanent makeup is designed to make your life easier. Anyone can benefit from the application of permanent makeup. With your eyes lined, eyebrows filled, and lips colored, you can leave the house anytime, confident in your appearance. While anyone can benefit from permanent makeup, there are some groups that may enjoy those benefits more than others. 

  • Individuals Who Work Long Hours

    Saving 20 minutes or so each morning preparing to leave the house may not seem like much if you aren’t pressed for time in the morning, but it can make your whole day run better if you struggle to leave the house on time. Saving time on makeup application each morning leaves you time to sit and eat your breakfast before you leave the house, or maybe even sleep a little longer. 

  • Those Who Aren’t Confident Leaving the House Without Makeup

    While all women should feel beautiful, some women just prefer not to leave the house without at least a little makeup on. For these individuals, permanent makeup is perfect. When they are pressed for time, they can leave the house without doing their makeup, confident in their appearance. On days when they have more time, they can customize their look a little more, perhaps adding a little cat eye or smokey shadow. 

  • People Who Like a More Natural Look

    A competent permanent makeup artist will give you a soft, natural look with their application. Not many people want to walk around with a full-on glamour look day and night. The light touch is enough for many women on a daily basis. It is easy to ramp up your look on days (or nights) when a little more glamour is called for. 

  • Individuals Who Have Trouble Applying Makeup

    It can be frustrating if you have a medical condition that makes applying makeup difficult. Shakey hands, trouble bending your fingers or vision issues can all make applying makeup a struggle. For anyone experiencing these issues, permanent makeup is an excellent solution. 

Permanent makeup sessions take between 30 minutes and two hours. Your permanent makeup artist will talk to you before the procedure so the two of you will be on the same page regarding the outcome. You may choose to have permanent eyeliner, eyebrow filling, lip liner and lip filling performed. 

 

What Is Permanent Makeup?

Written by: dominick Date of published: .

There are lot of advantages to wearing makeup. They can hide flaws, bring out attributes, and accentuate clothing and other accessories. But makeup has its “dark side” as well. It can be difficult to find a brand that flatters the wearer consistently, that is easy to put on and take off, and it’s almost impossible to have any makeup brand look as fabulous by the end of the day as it did when it was first put on. But, there is a solution. 

Permanent makeup, also known as micro-pigmentation, is a form of tattooing that can have different applications. Sometimes an individual has eyebrows replaced or augmentation of natural skin pigment done following injury or illness to give a more natural appearance. Other times, traditional cosmetics such as lip color or eyeliner are applied. In such cases, people who have this procedure done might have difficulty applying makeup themselves, or want to avoid the daily grind of doing it. 

Is Permanent Makeup Truly “Permanent”?

This makeup is as permanent as any tattoo and is as subject to changes caused by weather exposure, aging, etc. Removal of or alterations of a final product can sometimes entail surgery depending on where and what was done, so this is not a procedure that should be done lightly.

Who Should Apply Permanent Makeup?

This is not DIY makeup application. To make sure that it is done safely and correctly, only a makeup artist recommended by a cosmetic surgeon should do the procedure and/or one who is a member of the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals, a professional and educational industry organization. 

What To Expect

All procedures should start with a consultation. The makeup artist should examine the area in question, ask what you would like to have done, what your expectations are, and give his or her own assessment. The consultation is also when medical histories and concerns should be addressed. If you appear to be a good candidate for this procedure, the makeup artist will apply temporary makeup so that you can see how this look looks before committing to it. 

While these procedures can be often done on the day of the consultation, and more than one can be done on the same day, beware makeup artists who try to pressure you into this. The artist should also be honest in answering questions about recovery time, possible side effects, tattooing methods used, and what the artist can and can’t realistically do. If all of these questions can be answered and you feel comfortable with the artist, then an important first step has been taken on the road to getting permanent makeup.

Written by: dominick Date of published: .

The fuller eyebrow trend remains a key feature for women of all ages. Thicker brows allow us to look youthful, frame the eyes beautifully and balance the rest of our face.

Scraggly Brows Don’t Enhance Much

Too thin brows are aging on a woman, according to iconic makeup artist Sandy Linter. She has applied makeup to the famous faces of Christie Brinkley, Elizabeth Hurley and Nancy Reagan.

I like a fuller, more natural looking brow.”

Your Eyebrows are YOUR Eyebrows

Written by: dominick Date of published: .

Eyebrows say a lot about us. They’re often the facial features that people notice first and remember longest, and they give a powerful immediate impression. What do your eyebrows say about you?

Your Eyebrows are Expressive

The best message your eyebrows can convey is that you not only care about how you look, you also know and understand your own individual beauty. That’s why it’s absolutely essential to steer clear of hit-or-miss DIY brow routines or fashion fads that leave you looking like an imitation of someone else. Your brows are one of the most important features of your face, and it’s absolutely crucial to work with a consultant who can help you make your brows the best they can be.

Enhance Your Eyebrows with Permanent Makeup

Most women put a lot of time and effort into their brows, using procedures that range from tweezing, threading and waxing to drawing, stenciling, or even transplants to get the that perfect shape, thickness, color and arch. But for the best, longest lasting, and most flattering results, permanent makeup can be the optimum solution.

Permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation or cosmetic tattoos, can beautifully enhance even the thinnest, sparsest brows, supplying the shape and fullness you’ve always wanted. Permanent brows are an excellent choice for women who want to recapture a vibrant and youthful appearance; our brows tend to become thinner as we age, and micropigmentation is an undetectable means of restoring the fullness that may have been lost with time.

Your permanent makeup technician can help you decide on how you want your brows to look, making suggestions based on your skin type, coloring, and face shape. However the final decision on the shape, color, and thickness of your permanent eyebrows is entirely yours. Permanent brow shaping is a very personal procedure, and we do everything possible to make sure you get exactly the brows that you want.

What to Expect

Permanent brow makeup can be a painless procedure, but complete healing does take some time. For the first few days following the procedure it will generally look as though you’ve used ordinary makeup, such as a topical brow pencil, and by day four or five you may notice some scaliness or flakiness as the top layer of skin sheds. But within a week you’ll be enjoying beautiful, natural looking eyebrows.

A minimal “touch up” done within a couple weeks of the initial procedure completes the process, and you’ll have the brows you’ve always dreamed of.

Quick and Easy Contouring Tips

Written by: dominick Date of published: .

Contouring is all the rage nowadays, but in the makeup industry it has been used for countless years to define bone structure and make features stand out. Once reserved for theater, it now plays a powerful role in women’s daily makeup routines. Learn the secrets behind it so you can contour like a pro!

Pick a Shade

Picking the right color to contour with can be challenging. Many women make the mistake of using orange-toned powder to contour, which results in an unnatural and uneven look. For the best results, use a matte color that is no more than two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Depending on your undertone, you may need a cool, warm or neutral color. If you aren’t sure what kind of undertone you have or don’t want to hassle with it, pick a neutral shade.

Find the Right Formula

Contouring products are most commonly available in powder and cream formulas. If you have oily skin, a powder-based product is ideal because it won’t smudge or streak throughout the day. If you have dry skin, opt for a cream-based product that won’t appear powdery or sink into fine lines.

Follow Your Bone Structure

Your natural bone structure should act as your guide when it comes to applying contouring products. Swipe color along your cheekbone in a downward slanted motion and across your natural jawline. You can also apply it lightly across your temples for a more defined look.

Give Yourself a Nose Job

Contouring can create the illusion of a more symmetrical nose when applied properly. Swipe color along the sides of your nose and dab it on the tip to make it appear smaller. Finish it off with a light application of highlighting powder along the bridge of the nose.

Achieve a Sun-Kissed Glow

Shimmery bronzer can be used instead of traditional contouring products to create a healthy and natural-looking tan. However, avoid unnatural hues such as orange. For the best results, pick a bronzer that is no more than two shades darker than your skin tone and apply it along your cheekbones and jawline.

Contouring can make your features stand out more and add more dimension to your face. Follow our tips and tricks to achieve a natural look that can be used in your everyday makeup routine.

Permanent Makeup Pain Management

Written by: dominick Date of published: .

Will Permanent Makeup Hurt?

For those considering permanent makeup, one of the most common concerns is whether the procedure will be painful. Like most procedures there is some pain involved in the permanent makeup process, but experienced technicians have several tools available to reduce pain and discomfort. Pain management is one of the most important considerations when deciding which makeup technician to use for the process.

Topical Anesthetics

Topical anesthetics are often used to manage pain during the makeup procedure. This anesthetic is applied to the skin and then covered before the procedure so that it is absorbed by the pores. Absorption into the pores assures that there will be less pain during the needle’s initial contact with the skin. This is commonly used for the application of permanent eyeliner.

Epinephrine Products

Over-the-counter epinephrine products, commonly used to treat allergic reactions, are also used by seasoned makeup technicians. These products essentially stop skin capillaries from working, act to reduce pain during a procedure and minimize swelling during and after the makeup is applied.

Local Anesthetic

If the procedure is done with a doctor or dentist present, as is sometimes the case with lip makeup, a local anesthetic may be used. Lip makeup application is the most painful for most clients, which is why a technician may do the work in conjunction with a doctor or dentist.

Highly Qualified Technician

A qualified, highly skilled technician is the greatest asset in permanent makeup pain management. An experienced technician has a great understanding of the procedures, is up to date on knowledge from the medical community and uses the best and most advanced technology on his or her clients. Experts in the field know the best means of application to reduce pain, discomfort and scarring to a minimal amount.

Prior to advances in the industry the risk and reality of pain was much greater for permanent makeup procedures. Technicians often lacked the proper pain management products and clients would get burned, scratched or would experience uncomfortable swelling. Now with updated technology and an experienced technician, pain and discomfort are controlled greatly. Many permanent makeup clients experience much less pain than they expected and are overwhelmingly happy with the results.

Only Trust Your Face to the Right Place

Written by: dominick Date of published: .

Permanent makeup gives you countless advantages. Number one on the list for many women is the time it will save you during your beauty routine. With permanent eye liner, never again will you have to worry about applying those perfect pencil lines to enhance your eyes – they’ll always be there so you’re ready to go in minutes. Additional permanent makeup enhancements on your lips, eyebrows and more not only save you time getting ready, but can liven up your overall look. Appear younger, healthier and more vibrant with the right permanent makeup.

Choosing the Office

How do you decide which permanent makeup is right for you? The first step comes with the consultation, but even before that you need to make sure you choose the best practitioner. By looking for certain important features in both the permanent makeup artist and in the office itself, you can ensure you’ll get the best care and the clearest and most attractive results.

After all, permanent makeup is made up of a procedure known as “micropigmentation,” or microscopic tattooing of the skin. You need to make sure the practitioner is experienced, has the proper certification and runs an efficient practice.

Things to Look for Before Consultation

There are several features you should check off your list when choosing a permanent makeup practitioner. These include: cleanliness, organization, proper equipment, documents of certification, testimonials from satisfied customers.

  • Cleanliness: The office should be spotless, and the furniture and equipment looking like new. Everything should have a polished edge and nothing should look shabby or run down. You want the best care and attention to detail when your permanent makeup is applied, and that attention to detail should show the minute you walk through the door.
  • Organization: You should not see any evidence of clutter, and everything should be in its place. There should be designated offices, spaces and areas for each step of the process – a reception area, a consultation office and separate rooms where the procedure is completed.
  • Proper equipment: Any reused equipment should be sterilized, but the practitioner should have as many disposable, single-use components as possible. Ask to see the setup in the procedure rooms before your first consultation.
  • Certification: Look for the practitioner’s certificates from permanent makeup training courses. If you don’t see documents or diplomas hanging in the office, ask for the details of the practitioner’s training.
  • Testimonials: Go to the practitioner’s website while you’re doing your research. There should be plenty of testimonials and recommendations from happy customers. Word of mouth is one of the best ways to tell whether you’ll join the list of satisfied customers!
