Permanent Makeup, Yes Or No?

makeupWouldn’t it be great to be able to wake up in the morning and not have to put any makeup on?

Your eyeliner is already there, and your lips are nice and red.

No more worrying about your eyeliner running during the day when you have to work or play.

Getting permanent makeup may be just the thing for you. Permanent makeup procedures are very similar to the process of getting a tattoo.

They use a needle to put pigmented granules under the skin. The process is the same, but used for different reasons. You can get just about anything you want done, including blush for your cheeks, and eye shadow for your eyes.

Skilled Professional

When getting permanent makeup you need to make sure that you have a skilled practitioner completing the procedure. You don’t want to trust just anyone because the results are going to be permanent.

The only way you will be able to fix a procedure that didn’t go right is cosmetic surgery.

Just make sure you do research on the practitioner to determine whether they are dermatologists, tattooists, or cosmetologists and you should be fine. Three things to look for when choosing a professional are:

  • Reputable Training– You will want a professional who has had some type of training for the procedure that they will be performing. They should be able to show you a certificate proving where they completed a course of study. It should also include certifications for the procedures you are undergoing.
  • Experience – Ask your permanent makeup professional how long they have been doing this type of procedure, and also how many times they have performed this procedure. You don’t want to be their very first patient. Look for professionals with years of experience.
  • Sterilization Techniques– Sterilization is very important to your health when getting permanent makeup. You will want to go to a professional that adheres to strict rules when it comes to this. Make sure you ask all the questions that will reassure you that where you are having the procedure completed is a sterile place. Your professional should use clean needles every time they do makeup, and sanitary gloves should also be worn.


Permanent makeup requires the use of pigments. You will want your professional to choose pigments that have a predictable color. Choose colors that will last a long time. Your professional also needs to be purchasing their pigment from a reputable dealer.

All pigment used should have been tested in a laboratory. These pigments need to have a history of being safe. Pigments should be proven to have longevity of color.

There have been many strides in FDA regulation for pigments. The FDA overseeing the manufacturing of pigments will produce a safer product in the future.

The money you will save by getting permanent makeup will add up with time. Not having to apply and take makeup off every day can be a big plus. All kinds of people have this procedure done every day without any problems, and so can you.
