PERMANENT MAKEUP (and its variation, MICROBLADING), is a tattoo, and it is not–this is a case of apples and walnuts. Both are nutritious foods, and both grow on trees, but they’re not the same. For more details on the differences between durable cosmetics and body art, please visit the About page on this website. As I practice it, permanent makeup includes aesthetic procedures such as eyebrow color, eyeliner/eye shadow, and lipcolor–it also includes “micropigmentation,” which is the medical term for restorative coloration following cancer surgery, radiation or chemotherapy, as well as simulated-hair pigmentation for alopecia clients who have lost their eyebrows and/or eyelashes. Microblading is another popular term, generally referring to natural-looking work done on eyebrows with a hand tool, which is the way I do eyebrows.
You will find numerous photographic examples in these pages.
In brief, here’s how you can benefit from permanent makeup:
• Saves time–effortless good looks, both day and night
• Serves your active lifestyle–won’t run or streak during your workout
• Gives a natural, “beautiful without makeup” look
• Ends the difficulty of applying makeup with glasses
• Minimizes those aging changes around eyes and lips
• Eliminates a challenge for arthritic or shaky hands
