Everyone is constantly in search for the long-lasting lip, eye or face product that can stay on all day, but there is one procedure that can take things to a whole new level; permanent makeup. What exactly is permanent makeup? Also referred to as cosmetic tattooing, it involves implanting pigment into the upper layer of the skin around the eyebrows, lips and eyes. It can be used for correcting facial irregularities, camouflaging burns, scars and Vitiligo. Nonetheless, there are some things you should know about permanent makeup before taking the plunge. Some of these are:
- Finding the right technician is important
Technique, artistry and safety are three things to bear in mind when finding the right technician for permanent makeup. This can give you the results you want.
- It can last for a long time
Just like normal tattoos, sun exposure and time can cause the ink used in permanent makeup to fade. While the amount of time it will stay fresh will vary from person to person, permanent makeup can last for years when done right.
- Always check the technician beforehand
Before you opt for a technician for doing your permanent makeup, you should check their work beforehand. Meet their clients so you can see their work firsthand. The technician will be more than happy to give you references you can check. If they are not willing to provide you with any, consider it a red flag and move on to someone else.
- Anyone can get it done
There are many rumors and myths surrounding permanent makeup. One of them is that it is not for everyone. The good news is that it is not true and anyone can get it done, as long as they find the right technician and know what they want.
