What is Permanent Makeup?

Those inevitable mornings where you wake up late, basically having to jump straight from bed into the car to make it to work has caught us all at one point. As someone who wears makeup on a regular basis, this can be not only frustrating but sometimes embarrassing! Everyone wants to feel confident when they are at work or in public- and if makeup is your saving grace then rushed mornings are not your friend! This epidemic is what has drawn many people to permanent cosmetics. The simplicity of not having to apply makeup every day can cut down on the amount of time it takes you to get ready and costs of makeup in the long run!

What is permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup can sound scary or unrealistic for most people. But permanent cosmetic procedures have grown greatly in the past several years- Microblading, permanent eyeliner, concealer, or lip blushing have all become well known and frequently performed. To simply explain what a permanent makeup procedure is, would be to call it a tattoo. The procedures all deposit pigment colors into the skin either by razors, acupuncture or needles. There a handful of permanent cosmetic procedures that are well known and performed.


Microblading has become well known within the past couple of years. This procedure consists of depositing pigment into the skin with a blade. The esthetician, or doctor, draws out and measures your “new brows”, numbs your eyebrows and then begins. After you are properly prepared for the procedure, they will begin making tiny slices throughout the eyebrow area, filling them with pigment. They repeat the process until they reach your desired look- this process can take anywhere from 1 ½ to 2 hours depending on the specialist. Although most permanent cosmetics do not require touch-ups, microblading requires a second session. This is because the first pigment will fade and heal, causing scabbing and loss of color. So, they perform this twice so that you get the desired color after it has healed!

Permanent Eyeliner

Eyeliner is another process that has been around for several years. It began as regular tattoos, but it was quickly discovered that regular tattoos blur and fade too quickly for the eye area. The procedure is now performed with a European acupuncture which pushes color down to the lash line. Most doctors recommend keeping the liner relatively light colored; it is recommended to avoid black and winged eyeliner, as they have greater chances of fading and drooping. Permanent eyeliner can be beneficial because it can last through sleep, sweat and showers.

Lip Blushing

Lip blushing is another cosmetic medical procedure- which tends to be the most painful. The lips are one of the most sensitive areas on the body. The process is the same – needles are used to line the lips and then fill with color. Directly after the procedure the color can be alarmingly dark, but it will fade! Those lips will be irresistibly kissable in a few days!
