Everyone enjoys the feeling of looking their best. So, it’s not surprising the world cosmetic market’s revenue will reach 863 billion in 2024, according to Zion Market Research.
Yes, people love makeup. But, many makeup-wearers tire of the daily process of prepping their face, applying their makeup and removing it at the end of the day.
The process is fun but can be tiresome, especially if you need to switch from day to evening shades to go out. Fortunately, other options are available. Permanent makeup can help keep up your favorite day-to-day look without the need to reapply every single day.
Think permanent makeup may be right for you?
Here’s everything you need to know about the different types of permanent makeup available.
Types of Permanent Makeup
Permanent makeup gets applied to cheeks, eyebrows, eyeliner, lip liner, and lipstick. Yet, the most popular permanent makeup is for the eyebrows.
The application process is called micropigmentation.
Three different techniques offer the application of semi-permanent facial tattoos. These techniques are microblading, microfeathering, and microshading and are completed by a trained artist.
If you’re interested in achieving the look of newly filled-in brows then consider getting microblading. It is perfect for people with sparse or patchy eyebrows.
The artist matches the tattoo makeup to the color and texture of your eyebrow hair. There’s minimal pain during the procedure thanks to topical anesthetic applied right before the microblading process.
The tattooed eyebrow should last up to two years without needing a touchup. And, the cost depends on the location of the salon and ranges from $250-$1000.
But, if you have sensitive skin or experience conditions like eczema or psoriasis then microblading might not be an option for you.
Microfeathering is like microblading but the biggest difference is the size of the area getting tattooed. Microblading usually fills in the entire eyebrow area but microfeathering fills in spots within naturally full eyebrows.
The ink lasts about eight months up to one year. It costs an estimated $1,000 and takes approximately two appointments to complete.
This technique also matches the color of the ink to the eyebrow color. The combination of natural hair and microfeather ink strokes creates a beautiful look.
Microshading is a good choice for women with sensitive skin. It’s like microblading except the process uses tiny dots to create a powdered background effect to your eyebrows.
The microshading lasts about one year before a touch up is necessary with prices comparable to microblading.
Use Caution Before Booking
Though permanent makeup offers the benefit of a shorter morning routine there are a few things to consider before scheduling an appointment.
Be sure the permanent makeup artist you choose meets the state regulations requirements. You don’t want an infection or scarring due to an artist cutting too deep. Ask questions about the sterilization of tools and the use of new needles.
