There are a plethora of reasons to have permanent makeup applied, including giving yourself a brighter, fresher, and youthful look; but before you make your final decision regarding your permanent makeup artist, you need to do your homework. This is the right way to avoid permanent makeup mistakes.
I am not the only qualified makeup artist, but my clients will testify to the fact that I am one of the very best. While many people make up their minds to use me once they see my website, my TV commercials, or YouTube videos, it is not unusual for me to recommend that some clients seek a second opinion before making their final decision.
My goal is for every client to be completely elated with the change in their appearance. Many clients have come to me in tears after their permanent makeup experience went wrong after using another artist. As a makeup artist, I do feel badly for these women even though I know that it is good for me from a professional perspective since I am almost always able to repair the damage, and give them the look to enhance their appearance that they hoped to achieve the first time.
There are times when permanent makeup cannot be repaired immediately, and I will be honest in giving my opinion and sound advice for a solution even though it may require painful laser treatments, or even surgery to remove the damage, before I can do their permanent makeup the right way.
The following five examples will help you avoid permanent makeup gone wrong:
Do your research… Google it!
Take advantage of one your most powerful tools by learning about permanent makeup procedures, techniques, benefits and potential pitfalls. Research the permanent makeup artists and their reviews.
The Look You Don’t See
Always remember that you do not want someone to look at you and say, “Oh, she has had some cosmetic tattooing done.” Permanent make-up is cosmetic tattooing, but it should look natural by subtly enhancing the natural beauty in your facial features. This is only accomplished if the permanent makeup blends smoothly with your skin tones, and is not an example of a passing color fad, or fashion trend. Your permanent makeup is applied to outlast fads and fashion trends!
Beware – Permanent Makeup has Experienced Rapid Growth, but Slow Regulation
I began my career in the permanent makeup industry in 1988, and during the past twenty-five years the industry has experienced rapid growth without regulations or standards. Unfortunately, you do not have to have extensive training or experience to call yourself a permanent makeup artist.
Always Schedule a Consultation First
Once you have completed your research and narrowed down your choices, schedule a consultation with two or three permanent makeup artists. As a rule, these consultations are complimentary, and you should not be charged. Ask yourself if you like their personal appearance, including their makeup; listen to their opinions, and make sure you have confidence in them and feel comfortable with what they are telling you. Always ask them to apply topical makeup using the same colors that will be used in the permanent makeup process so you can see in advance how it will look on you.
Make an Informed Choice Before Allowing a Permanent Makeup Artist to Work on You
If you do your homework, you will be able to find the right permanent makeup artist for you. After researching on the internet, ask friends, or acquaintances who have gone through the permanent makeup process and achieved positive results to give you recommendations.
