Permanent makeup is the art of applying cosmetic pigments into the deeper layers of the skin to create a lasting effect of wearing makeup. It goes by numerous names such as:
- Cosmetic Tattooing
- Micropigment Implanting
How Does Permanent Makeup Work?
Permanent makeup is much like a tattoo, but for cosmetic purposes. Carefully chosen pigments are tattooed into the skin to give the effect of freshly applied makeup without having to actually apply any cosmetics. Different colors are implanted into the dermis of the skin to mimic the look of eyebrows, eyeliner, eyeshadow, and lipstick. This allows for a consistent facial appearance without having to apply any makeup.
Why Choose Permanent Makeup?
There are many reasons a woman would choose to have permanent makeup applied to her face or a specific feature. For one, it saves time. We all know how long it can take to put on a fresh application of makeup each morning before work or before an event. Having permanent makeup means you won’t have to wake up a few hours early just to look presentable every day.
Another reason why women choose permanent makeup is for the cost savings. Whether you buy your cosmetics from a drug store or from a high-end retailer, the cost can quickly add up. The average cost of a cosmetic tattooing session is about $600. Because the makeup is permanent, you would only need to factor in the cost of touch-up procedures every 6 months or longer depending on the quality of your cosmetic tattoo and how quickly the colors fade.
