Permanent makeup is becoming famous for enhancing features, such as brows, lash lines, and lips. 

What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup could be a solution for you if you’ve ever woken up in the morning and wished up didn’t have to put on your makeup. Permanent makeup is the implanting of dyes or pigments to the first layer of skin that helps enhance features, most popular being eyebrows, lash line, and lips. Permanent makeup looks like real makeup that you would typically apply, and as it suggests, this makeup does not need to be removed and reapplied every day. You can wake up, and your makeup is still perfect. 

A standard permanent makeup procedure is microblading that fills your brows, so they always look full and put together. The process of permanent makeup, called micro-pigmentation, is similar to tattooing, but is a more delicate and tailored procedure because of the sensitivity of the area. During micro-pigmentation, a technician or doctor will apply an anesthetic to the area of the face having the process. The anesthetic numbs a person’s face to make it easier for a technician to complete their work.
