There are several options for permanent makeup to consider, such as for the eyebrows, lips, and even eyeliner, and today’s techniques and artistry are more advanced than ever resulting in permanent makeup that looks natural. However, if you want it done, the process isn’t as simple as just making an appointment and going. The following are just some of what you should know and do if you’re considering permanent makeup.
Think About Why You Want It
There are quite a few reasons why someone might consider permanent makeup, such as that their eyebrow hair has significantly thinned due to health reasons or that it can save a substantial amount of time getting ready in the morning. As exciting as it may seem, there’s no rush to get it done, so consider the reasons why you want it and if it’s really something you want to do.
Know That It Might Need Refreshing Over Time
Despite the term of “permanent makeup,” the color will likely fade over time. Should you desire in the future, you can have it refreshed at some point, but how often varies from person-to-person. There are several factors that can play a part, but essentially the best way to approach it is to just see how the permanent makeup holds up.
Choose a Reputable Trained Professional
Having just any permanent makeup specialist do your permanent makeup will not do. Even though the color will fade over time, it’s probably going to take awhile, so you’re obviously going to want someone doing it who knows the right way to go about it. They should be properly trained and licensed and have a gallery of work to show you. When you go in for a consultation, don’t hesitate to ask any questions you have—it is your body and money after all—and if they give you a problem about answering your questions or something just doesn’t seem right, it might be a good idea to move on to someone else.
Do an Internet search of the business and even of the permanent makeup specialist and you’ll very likely come across reviews from previous and/or current clients, so don’t hesitate to see what they have to say. Do as much research as you can, especially focusing on reviews from the past year, and see what you come up with.
Be Sure of Your Decision
The most important thing to do when it comes to getting permanent makeup is to be sure of your decision. As previously stated, there’s no rush to get it done. You want to make sure that it’s not just something you want now but that you won’t be into in a week or a month from now.
There are some who get only one type of permanent makeup while others opt for a few, but it’s all about what’s best for you and for what you’re a candidate. Having a consultation and seeing what your options are is a great starting point and could provide you with all the answers you need.
