Always Look Your Best
If you always want to look your best, but find the application of makeup to be too time-consuming or bothersome, a solution may be permanent makeup.
Permanent cosmetics involves the application of pigments to enhance your face, lips, eyebrows, and eyelids, similar to traditional makeup. Permanent makeup is becoming increasingly popular with people who lead very active lives, have skin discolorations, suffer from hair loss, or have certain disabilities. The application of permanent makeup may result in more well-defined features, like richer, plumper lips, fuller brows, and brighter eyes. Scars and sunspots can even be disguised.
Women choose permanent makeup for a number of different reasons. Some are allergic to conventional creams or powder makeup. Others have poor eyesight or an unsteady hand. Sometimes, their workplace does not permit them to wear traditional makeup. Some just find it inconvenient to apply makeup when they need to leave the house.
How is Permanent Makeup Applied?
Permanent makeup enhances the appearance of your face, just like conventional cosmetics. Colored ink is applied to the upper layers of your skin. This ink is employed to make designs on the parts of your face that you want to stand out. Permanent makeup inks are approved by the FDA.
What Types of Permanent Makeup are Available?
Permanent makeup can be either very bold or quite subtle, based on your desires. Some of the areas that most commonly see the application of permanent makeup are the lips, eyebrows, and around the eyes. Eyeliner may be applied to the eyelids, and lips may be lined or get a full-color treatment. One option for women who have constricted manual dexterity is permanent blush. It can also be used for those who do not wear a foundation base.
Types of permanent makeup are available for those who wish to cover a birthmark or scar. Permanent makeup can also help cover up stretch marks. Some women with breast enhancements elect to get permanent makeup on their areolas, which can be affected by their surgery. The application of permanent makeup requires specialized training by the technicians.
Who is a Candidate for Permanent Makeup?
As long as your body has the ability to heal properly, you are a good candidate for permanent makeup. Women of all ages use permanent makeup to improve their appearance and reduce the amount of time needed to start their day. Since permanent makeup does not require frequent applications, women find they have much more time available to accomplish their daily tasks. Athletes are also good candidates for permanent makeup because sweating can require frequent applications of traditional makeup. People with vision challenges and those who have difficulty applying makeup are also good candidates for permanent makeup.
Is it Really Permanent?
Because permanent makeup ink is placed under your skin, it can’t be washed off like traditional makeup. Fading can happen over time, however, so occasionally color refreshing may be required. How long your makeup lasts depends on factors like frequency of sun exposure, the topical products you apply to your skin, and the colors selected for permanent makeup.
Occasional maintenance provides an opportunity to reassess your permanent makeup color. You may find that you want to select a somewhat different shade at this time, particularly if over time your tastes have changed.
