Conventional makeup such as eyeshadow pallets, lipstick, eyeliner, and mascara are all designed to help you enhance the natural, external features of your face.

If you’re someone who enjoys wearing makeup, you may have realized that on some occasions, it’s an incredibly time-consuming process.

Not only does makeup application take up a lot of your time, but most conventional makeup products aren’t resistant to extreme weather conditions. Particularly on a hot, summer day. This would require frequent touch-ups throughout the day.

Thankfully, permanent makeup can eliminate the hassle of rushing to get your makeup done regularly as well as retouching your makeup multiple times during the day, despite your skin type or the weather condition.

What are the types of permanent makeup procedures?

Permanent makeup is a cosmetic tattoo that can stay on for up to 3 years. The most popular permanent makeup procedures are:

  • Lip liner
  • Lip color
  • Eyeliner
  • Hair imitation
  • Eyelash enhancement

A permanent makeup procedure can shorten the duration of your daily makeup routine while giving you the look of a professionally made-up face with little to no effort.

Who can benefit from permanent makeup?

Cosmetic tattooing or permanent makeup isn’t limited to anyone. If you’re simply looking for a way to enhance your natural features without having to exclusively dedicate time to them daily, permanent makeup might be the best choice for you. It’s also suitable for:

  • People with an active lifestyle such as athletes
  • People with sparse or thinning eyebrows
  • People with alopecia, vitiligo, skin discoloration, and scarring
  • People who wear contact lenses or have sensitive eyes
  • People with pale lips
  • Patients undergoing chemotherapy

What are the benefits of permanent makeup?

Saves time

You no longer have to spend hours in front of your mirror trying to get a long-lasting, flawless look every day. Reapplying or retouching your makeup is no longer a concern.

What’s more time-consuming than applying makeup is removing it. Making sure to thoroughly remove your daily makeup is a chore. Especially after a long day. With permanent makeup, you don’t have to go through this tiring process.

Requires no maintenance

Permanent makeup is sweat, water, and smudge-proof. If you’re someone who has a physically demanding job or you’re involved in a lot of outdoor activities, permanent makeup is ideal as it will leave you looking fresh and beautiful all day.

Includes all skin types

If you’re someone who has extremely sensitive or acne-prone skin and is unable to use most conventional makeup products due to breakouts, itchiness, or irritated eyes, permanent makeup is the best option for you.

Fades with time

Cosmetic tattooing procedures are designed to last for about 1 to 3 years. This way, you don’t have to worry about committing to one style of makeup forever.

The fading process entirely depends on how you care for your skin and your natural skin tone.

Boosts self-confidence

Signs of aging or any other external factors that cause visible changes to your skin might not make you feel your best. If you’re not comfortable with wearing a full face of makeup every day, permanent makeup can make you feel more confident instantly.

You have the option of choosing to go with a natural look or a slightly more dramatic look depending on which you think will make you feel more confident.

Avoid the hassle of a lengthy daily makeup routine with permanent makeup

Investing in a permanent makeup procedure not only saves you time but also saves you money, as you don’t have to invest in makeup products that may not work for you. You will no longer find yourself spending excessively for a full face of conventional makeup at a salon.
