What is Permanent Makeup?

A Complete Guide to Permanent Makeup
Permanent makeup is also known as tattooed makeup because the process is similar to body tattoo. It is a non-surgical procedure of putting colored pigments into your dermis or the skin’s dermal layer by using a pen with a very fine needle. Depending on the customer’s choice, the procedure can result in various designs and colors which resemble makeup.

Why Should You Get Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is not meant to replace cosmetics entirely, but it could serve as a form of beauty enhancement. You can still put on your makeup over the permanent makeup if you want more substantial and heavier makeup during the night or for a simple change of looks. Having permanent makeup saves you a lot of time, especially on those busy days or lazy days wherein every minute counts, and spending hours doing makeup is too much to bear.

How is Permanent Makeup Done?

Permanent makeup is usually done on eyebrows, eyelids, and lips for either natural enhancement or more defined lines. The whole process takes about 30 to 120 minutes, depending on which area you are getting done. It also depends on the complexity of the process. The technician will be putting numbing cream on the area before starting with the actual procedure.

Though people have a different pain tolerance level, the cream can usually lessen the pain, making the entire process more comfortable. Like a regular tattoo, the area you’re getting work done on will be swollen for 2-5 days due to the needle, and the color will appear brighter or darker. However, it will eventually fade after some time.

Is Permanent Makeup Permanent?

Permanent makeup isn’t permanent at all. The pigment’s color and visibility usually last for only one to two years, and that’s when you have to book your appointment again.


Permanent Lip Makeup

Permanent Lip Makeup
Permanent Lip Makeup is for those who want to have defined lips, a natural lip color, or to correct uneven lips. It gives the lips an illusion of fullness as it enhances the outline of the lips. The process involves drawing a line on the lips, which can correct any deformity and create symmetry.

As people age, the lips’ color pigments tend to lessen, causing the lips to lose its color eventually. Permanent makeup can also compensate for the uneven tone of the lips and the loss of color and give the lips a natural shade.

Expect for scabbing for five to seven days after your appointment as this is the time your lips are healing. After this, you may need to get back for modification to fill in the areas where the skin rejects the pigment.

Permanent Eyeliner Makeup

Every girl who puts on makeup knows how much time and effort we invest to achieve that perfect eyeliner, and at the end of the day, we will always have that makeup removed and go through the same ordeal the next day. Permanent eyeliner eliminates that hassle while also enhancing the lashes and giving it that eyeshadow effect.

Permanent eyeliner is done by putting ink on the lash lines, either top or bottom, but it could also be both, depending on the customer’s preference. The eyeliner’s consistency depends on the lash line’s thickness, as this will give an illusion of not wearing makeup and having fuller lashes. Still, the stylist could make the eyeliner thicker than the lash line and even extend the eyeliner for a different effect and design, or create the typical liquid eyeliner drawing right above the lash line, depending on what the customer wants.

Permanent Eyebrow Makeup

Permanent Eyebrow Makeup
Permanent eyebrow makeup is for those growing tired of retouching their eyebrows every few hours and every after activity. It spares a lot of time and money as eyebrows can be high maintenance, and eyebrow products can be expensive. Permanent eyebrow makeup is also for those who simply can’t achieve that perfect eyebrow symmetry matching their face’s shape.

This procedure aims to accentuate and enhance the eyebrows and get that perfect symmetry. You won’t have to worry about the uneven draw of your eyebrows every day, as permanent eyebrow makeup ensures perfectly even shape and size of the brows the whole day, every day of the week.

The procedure involves filling in bare spots of the eyebrows and creating brow shape using tattoo ink. The ink comes in different colors so that you can match your eyebrow color to your hair color and skin tone.

Microblading Eyebrows

Technically, microblading is different from permanent eyebrow makeup. Instead of using a tattoo machine, a small tool involving tiny needles is used to scrape and pigments the brows. This technique creates thin, hair-like strokes that result in realistic-looking brow hairs. Its purpose is similar to permanent eyebrow makeup, which fills in and attains that desired shape of the brows.

However, this procedure is usually availed by people who want to have naturally thick eyebrows and those who lost their eyebrows due to disease because microblading creates an illusion of fuller brows. The brow’s color may also vary depending on the skin tone, hair color, or client’s desire.

Eyelash Extension

Eyelash Extension
Eyelash extension is the most popular among all types of permanent makeup. Many girls have naturally short eyelashes, so an eyelash extension could be the best solution as it will also save you a lot of time. Eyelash extension can make the eyelashes look thicker, fuller, longer, and curlier.

Synthetic, Faux Mink, or Silk are the materials usually used for eyelash extensions since these are lightweight and natural-looking. The process involves gluing the eyelash extension individually on top of the natural lashes using harmless adhesive. The length and thickness of the eyelash extension you will be getting should depend on your natural lashes’ size and strength to make sure it lasts long and not damage your lashes.

Eyelash extensions could last for six to eight weeks with proper care. After the lashes have fallen out, you can go back to your technician for a touch-up.
