What Is Permanent Makeup?

Types of Permanent Makeup
- Eye Makeup

The Makeup Artist will first consult with their client about what style of eyebrow is best for them. Options range from a classic, and minimalist look to something more bold and defined. This is a great option for people experiencing hair loss or just anyone tired of their eyebrow running off when they get caught in the rain!
- Lip Liner
Lip liner provides definition and shape to thin or otherwise less defined lips. It can also be used to highlight and shape a particular style or blend in a little bit of color.
- Medical Makeup
This category is more about restoration than day-to-day makeup. This can be used to blend in an area of abnormal coloration of the skin and can even be used to mitigate cases of Vitiligo. Patients recovering from surgery have also consulted with medical makeup professionals to lessen the visibly of scars and restore the nipple and areola after breast surgery. Some clients find the restorative aspects to be the most empowering when working with a medical makeup specialist.
