PERMANENT MAKE-UP

 

 

Permanent makeup is an art form that uses pigments or inks and tiny needles to apply color under the skin to enhance natural beauty. This practice dates back and beyond ancient Egypt.
Think of Cleopatra and her infamous beauty, she and her ladies in waiting rubbed color from muddled berries into lips and cheeks to heighten color, Kohl to rim and darken eyes. Hence the art of cosmetic makeup was born.

As centuries have passed permanent makeup application and techniques have evolved and technology has made the procedure easier on both the client and technician. None the less, still an art form that combines technical skill and makeup artist abilities.
Permanent makeup done correctly should only enhance ones features: brightness to eyes, shape and color to brows, fullness and definition to lips. It should not replace a full face of makeup nor a night time look; but always appear soft and subtle. The colors appear more like water colors than an oil painting.

An untrained eye should not be able to detect it; only to notice that there is an improved difference to one’s appearance.
