Permanent Makeup is a form of semi-permanent tattooing which lasts for years rather than just hours. It’s a popular technique for those wishing for longer-lasting makeup results such as eyeliner, lip color, and definition for their eye-brows. A cosmetic tattoo is similar to a regular tattoo in the way that needles are used to transfer pigmented ink into the skin. However, permanent makeup is applied only to the top layer of skin with a hollow needle. It also lasts for 3-10 years as apposed to a lifetime.
Why Opt For Permanent Makeup Application Over Traditional, Removable Makeup Products?
For some, the option to totally remove your makeup as and when you need to is an absolute must. For others, however, the constant reapplication, removal and recurring cost of temporary make up products is tiresome and inconvenient. If this sounds like you, semi-permanent makeup may just be the perfect option! Not only will this form of cosmetic tattoo save you a great deal of time, but it’ll also significantly improve other aspects of your made-up and natural looks. Your eyes will appear brighter, more open and defined whilst your lashes look significantly fuller than ever before. This is due to the now darker baseline which causes the lashes to appear thicker right from the root!
How Is Permanent Makeup Applied?
Understandably, the thought of tattooing so close to your eye can seem unsettling to say the least. However, there is absolutely no need to fear this tried and tested procedure! Our in house permanent makeup artist, Marta Lucia, has spent almost two decades perfecting the art and science of permanent makeup application. Additionally, Marta is triple board-certified as an expert in micro-pigmentation, as a makeup artist, and makeup instructor.
Will I Experience Any Pain?
Before your procedure begins, a numbing cream will be applied to the area to ensure it is a pain-free process. Of course, all of us experience pain and feelings of discomfort in different ways so there is a chance you will feel slight discomfort or vibrations as the makeup is applied, However, this will be mild sensation only. Afterwards, you may experience minor and temporary side effects such as redness, itchiness and flaking, tenderness and minor swelling.
What Will My Lash Line Look Like After My Treatment?
Following your treatment, you can expect your eyes to look significantly more defined, more open and more dramatic! You’ll be surprised at not only how much brighter they look but how clearly you can see your eyelashes too, especially those with eyelash extensions! Where you would usually need to apply at least a fine line of liquid liner to each eye to achieve a look like this, with permanent lash line makeup, you’ll wake up with a perfectly even, perfectly defined lash line every morning. The best part is, these results are created to last meaning you can enjoy your new look for years to come!
How Do I Take Care Of My Eyes Post Treatment?
Post-treatment, you’ll need to ensure you take proper care of your eyes and follow the instructions given to you before you leave the salon with your amazing new look! Applying a good quality aftercare cream such as the Microblading and PMU Aftercare Nourishing Cream by Makra Beauty is made from top quality, all-natural ingredients which include Calendula, Jojoba Oil Cream, Allantoin, Olive Oil Lotion and Vitamins A and E. It will encourage and aid the healing process to promote the regrowth of healthy skin cells. In addition to this, it’s important to avoid getting water, makeup and cosmetic products that may irritate your skin close to the treated area. You should also avoid harsh sunlight and sun-beds, scratching the skin though it may feel a little itchy, and make sure to keep your hair away from the area too. Follow these steps for the first week after your permanent makeup procedure to avoid irritation or infection.
How Long Will My Permanent Liner Last?
One of the main reasons so many people love this particular treatment is its long-lasting effects. Incredibly, the results of permanent eyeliner can last as long as ten years! Not only is this amazing value for your money but it’ll also be kinder to the environment and save you a great deal of time not having to apply your liner every single day. We don’t know about you but, for us, this stage in our makeup routine is most definitely the most time-consuming!
Your liner will also last considerably longer with proper aftercare. We also recommend aftercare on the go such as the Tattoo Repairing Ointments For Aftercare Recovery With Vitamin A&D.
