The Pros And Cons Of Permanent Makeup

There are moments when every woman wishes she never had to wear makeup, yet none of us feels safe unless we put a little bit of mascara or lipstick on. Permanent makeup sounds like a good solution for women who want to look perfect even when they wake up, but is it really safe? Here are the pros and cons one should expect after getting a permanent makeup.

There are some limits to what makeup artists can do and what they can’t do when creating a permanent look. Thus, you can only get a permanent eyeliner, lip makeup and eyebrows because you can’t tattoo the rest of the face to make it seem covered with foundation. 

The permanent eyeliner is the perfect solution for women who want to have their eyes emphasized at every hour of the day. The makeup professional will recommend the best design for your eye shape making the line thicker or thinner, depending on your preferences. Moreover, you will no longer have to waste time applying the annoying eye liner or kohl crayon and you won’t have to worry that your makeup gets smudged. On the other hand, the permanent eye liner fades aways after several years, so you will have to get tattooed over and over again in order to keep it looking fresh all the time. In addition, you can end up with a wrong tattoo if the artist is inexperienced.

Getting your lips permanently tattooed can help you get rid of many problems. Many women choose to tattoo their lips as an alternative solution to collagen injections. This method is much more convenient because the lips will appear fuller, while preserving their natural aspect. The process is permanent, so you won’t have to repeat it every once in a while as with other techniques.
People have unique lip colors, which is why professional makeup artists find it hard to match their natural shades. Thus, most of the times, the permanent lip contour is different than the lips and this leads to an unpleasant effect. Those who suffer from the herpes simplex virus could be even more prone to outbreaks. 

Finally, the permanent eyebrows are recommended for people who suffer from alopecia or those who have undergone chemotherapy. There are many techniques that professionals use, nowadays in order to obtain the most naturally looking eyebrows. Their color and shape is customizable according to the needs of each and every client, so you don’t have to worry that the permanent eyebrows won’t match your look. Nevertheless, make sure you carefully choose your eyebrow tattoo as you won’t be able to change its shape or color once you have made it. The process is also very painful and can lead to keloids formation.
