Are you bored with having to spend an hour each morning on your makeup routine? Are you tired of having to wake up early before work or school to get prepared for the day? If so, you might be considering permanent makeup.

Still, you need to know everything about this process before jumping into it. This is why we’ve decided to share all the essentials you need to know. We will talk about the good & the bad about permanent makeup so that you can prepare yourself.

We won’t get into unnecessary details that you shouldn’t be concerned with.

How the permanent makeup procedure works

Step 1

First of all, the technician who’ll handle the procedure will examine your skin to ensure there are no wounds, cuts, or scrapes.

Step 2

If your skin is good to go, he or she will clean the area with some antiseptic solution to make sure there are no infections or irritations due to the procedure.

Step 3

The artist then draws where your permanent makeup will be or transfers it with a stencil. Once you are satisfied with the position, the tattooing part starts.

Step 4

The pigment is applied underneath the skin with a needle placed in an electrical device. The technician controls the needle and follows the drawing that was previously made.

A permanent makeup procedure is identical to getting a regular tattoo. If you already have a tattoo, you will know what to expect.

How long does the procedure take?

It all depends on numerous factors. First of all, some professionals work faster than others. Additionally, it depends on what kind of permanent makeup design you choose, how complicated it is, and how big it is.

Experienced permanent cosmetics technicians can give you an accurate estimate when you describe them what you have in mind. Overall, depending on how much permanent makeup you want, the procedure can last from 20 minutes and up to 2 hours. 

Who should get it?

Permanent makeup has exploded in popularity in the last decade. This is because it makes life easier for so many women. Women who want to look good, but don’t want to waste time putting on makeup and getting it off every day, love this option.

On the other hand, women that are active physically or who play sports usually get permanent makeup as it won’t get damaged when sweating. If you are bad at putting on makeup, you should also consider this option.

There aren’t any restrictions, and all women from 18 to 80 can get permanent makeup. Still, make sure to consult your technician and tell them about your health issues and habits. A lot of women are allergic to makeup, and this can be a perfect solution for them.
