We want to provide you with insight into the benefits and drawbacks of the application process so that you can decide if it makes sense for you and your life.
What Exactly is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation, is a cosmetic technique and medical procedure that is designed to mimic fresh and impeccably applied makeup. Permanent makeup is most commonly used to create the appearance of eyeliner, eyebrow gel, and lipliner.
Permanent makeup fulfills a variety of different objectives. While it has traditionally been used to mimic freshly applied makeup this is by no means the limits of what it is capable of. A more light-handed application can create an end result that looks flawlessly natural – but better. Think rosier lips, blacker eyelashes, and more pronounced and well-arched brows.
