What is Permanent Makeup?

Flawless brows? Check. Rosy lips? Check. Perfectly winged eyeliner? Check.

These are a few of the things permanent makeup offers. If you’re looking for a way to get ready in the mornings with minimal effort, look no further. This concept has been around for a while now offering individuals a fast and easy morning routine.

How it works is beauticians use small needles to tattoo a design on your skin that resembles makeup. You can use this cosmetic technique to enhance areas of your face or add some color to your lips or eyelids. 

In this guide, we’ll go over the most popular permanent makeup services available to you.


If filling in your brows is an important part of your cosmetic regimen, consider microblading. This treatment uses an ultra-fine pen to place color just underneath the skin. It’s great for those with light or sparse eyebrows and unlike tattoos, microblading is done manually (no machine involved). 

How it works is the practitioner will use a handheld needle to draw each individual hair onto your skin until a flawless finish is achieved. This procedure can last up to 30 months, with touchups once or twice a year.

Permanent Eyeliner

If you struggle with winged eyeliner or like the subtle look of lining your eyelids, permanent eyeliner is the solution you’ve been looking for. This procedure gives off the illusion of thicker lashes and can be placed either along or above the lashes. The conventional tattoo is put just above the lash line, giving the appearance of an eyeliner line. For a more natural effect, the lash augmentation is placed within the lash line.

Lip Blushing

Lip tattoos may conjure up images of the glamorous Ariana Grande who uses lip liner but never seems to fill in her lips. This method has evolved into what is currently known as lip blushing or lip tinting. The tattoo is a subtle wash-on color that runs the length of the lip. The completed product should resemble a natural, smudged look. On average, lip blushing lasts between 2-3 years. 

Final Thoughts

Permanent makeup is the way to go if you want a genuine “I woke up like this” appearance. But, before you make an appointment, make sure you do your homework and find a licensed specialist who has the required qualifications, expertise, and who specializes in the procedure you’re considering.
