Emphasizing your eyes never goes out of style, but makeup in the COVID-19 era means the eyes really have it. With the lower half of your face in a mask, your eyes can be an immediately striking feature. From perfectly sculpted brows to lush lashes, makeup takes time and effort to rock every day. What if there was a way you could roll out of bed ready to greet the day? With permanent makeup, you can!
How Does Permanent Makeup Work?
You’ve probably heard of permanent makeup, but may not understand exactly what it is, how it differs from traditional tattooing and what you can expect from the process.
Unlike the vibrant, garish inks used for body tattoos, semi-permanent makeup utilizes pigments specifically intended for cosmetic application. This was not always the case, though. For many people, their only experience with permanent cosmetics is the unnatural and often unflattering look of tattoo ink. These pigments are also semi-permanent, meaning you’re not locked into this year’s hottest brow shape when trends change.
Downsides to Permanent Makeup
If you hate having extra time on your hands, semi-permanent cosmetics may not be for you. The ability to throw on a mask and run out the door means you’ll have more time to hit that snooze button in the morning or enjoy an extra cup of coffee.
The application process for body tattoos is notoriously painful; is pain one of the downsides of semi-permanent makeup? Not in our house. We use numbing agents to ensure the process is as painless and stress-free as possible. With proper after-care, infection and scarring risk is minimal as well, because we thoroughly sanitize our stations before and after each procedure. We also use a fresh single-use kit which is promptly discarded at the end of a procedure.
You might have to cover the lower half of your face through the rest of this pandemic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t shine. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help.
