What is Permanent Makeup and Is It Right for Me?
Do you pencil in your brows every morning or color them in before you go out? Is it difficult to see your brows because of your glasses? Do you dread going to pool parties, taking a dip in the hot tub or going to the steam room with that special someone?
Has the fashion of yester years & endless tweezing left your brows thin? Perhaps you would like to save time in the morning & get your children off to school or simply sleep in a bit longer? If the answer to any or all of these questions is yes, then you're the ideal candidate to get your brows done professionally!
Every client has a unique skin type, shape of their face, skin tone, and undertone of their skin. Depending on the age of the client, skin type (oily, dry, etc.), style, and how much upkeep clients want to invest in their permanent makeup will ultimately determine which style will be right for them.
One of the most common questions we get is permanent makeup a tattoo,? The answer is yes and no. KP Pro states “Cosmetic tattoo pigments are made up of smaller pigment particles that are suspended in a diluter – this allows for a more natural, softer color in the skin that can be layered to create a much more realistic finish. Traditional tattoo inks are much more concentrated which means that they are much stronger in color. Traditional tattoos are often very bold and can also be very bright too.”
Another way to explain this is permanent makeup will slowly fade and have a much more natural look. While a tattoo will alway look like a tattoo and will never take on a natural soft look. Our goal is to enhance every woman’s natural beauty. Every brow is customized for each individual client and what works best for their lifestyle.
The second common question is how will I know if I will like my brow shape? We consult each client on their realistic goals, lifestyle, color, and the shape of their face to make a recommendation on what type of brow style would look best. We listen to what clients are asking of us in regards to shape, desired color, and expectations.
Who Isn’t an Ideal Candidate for Permanent Makeup?
