Let's be real though - a lot of trust is needed when taking this leap, and we are here

to unpack some of the most common questions our Permanent Makeup Artists get asked on a daily basis, so you can unpack the info and make an informed decision on whether or not permanent makeup is right for you!

First things first!

What do I need to know about permanent makeup?

Learn all about the benefits and process of permanent makeup in our latest blog post at BLNDE Beauty Bar. Say goodbye to daily makeup routines and hello to effortless beauty!

Permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation or cosmetic tattooing, involves the application of pigment into the skin to create long-lasting enhancements to various facial features. It's a popular option for those looking to enhance their brows, lips, and eyes without the daily hassle of makeup application. It's not a replacement for makeup altogether, but it can really speed up your morning routine.

It's not a fix all - however it can really help with things like over-plucked brows, uneven lip lines and even help people with alopecia. Think about it like getting lash extensions. Just because you have the lashes doesn't mean you don't need blush and foundation, and the same can be said for permanent makeup. It is meant to enhance your natural beauty and simplify your life.

Does permanent makeup hurt?

We are not going to lie to you - it's not always pain-free! While some clients may experience discomfort during the procedure, we use two forms of numbing creams to ensure your comfort. Many clients report minimal discomfort or even find the process almost pain-free. Others who have a lower pain tolerance can find it to be uncomfortable. I mean, if you've gotten any kind of tattoo you understand the pain we are talking about, but this comes with a topical numbing! We know pain tolerance is different for everyone and we ensure that we take it slow and go at your pace so you can enjoy the experience from start to finish!

How long does permanent makeup last?

Permanent makeup can last anywhere from one to five years, depending on factors like skin type and lifestyle. Periodic touch-up sessions are recommended to maintain the vibrancy of your makeup. The beautiful thing about this service is that when you have a well-trained artist the fade out is natural-looking and soft as time passes.

What is the recovery period like?

The recovery period after permanent makeup can vary depending on the individual and the specific area treated. Generally, immediately after the procedure, you may experience some redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treated area. This is completely normal and usually subsides within a few days.

During the first week post-procedure, it's important to avoid touching or rubbing the treated area to allow it to heal properly. You may also notice some scabbing or flaking as the skin heals and the pigment settles into place. It's crucial to resist the urge to pick at any scabs, as this can affect the final outcome of your permanent makeup.

In terms of aftercare, your technician will provide you with specific instructions tailored to your treatment. This may include avoiding sun exposure, refraining from swimming or saunas, and applying healing ointments or creams as directed.

Overall, the recovery period for permanent makeup is relatively short, with most clients able to resume their normal activities within a week. However, it's essential to follow your technician's aftercare instructions diligently to ensure optimal results and long-lasting pigment retention. If you have any concerns or questions during the recovery process, don't hesitate to reach out to your technician for guidance and support.

Who is it right for?

Anyone really, honestly from 20-80 depending on your goals it can be an amazing thing for all ages and genders! My grandmother had her brows done because as she got older her eyesight made pencil in her brows difficult. I myself had my lips done because the natural color was so pale that they would blend into my face. I wanted a natural flush to my lips when I wasn't wearing lipstick so I could feel like a more fresh version of myself.

Many people going through chemotherapy or with alopecia find that this gives them a natural effortless look that boosts their confidence during hair loss, or for some it's just to help them look their best when they are completely fresh-faced!

So I'm sure this is leaving you with the thought on if this is right for you so lets unpack so of your big DO NOT DO's from our experts, to help you decide if this is truly the right path for you:

1. DON'T FOLLOW TRENDS - you want to make sure you enhance your natural shape and not go too bold or too trendy with the brow shape. During your consult brow mapping is done and we always prioritize your natural shape and face structure. We want to prevent you waking up in 5 years looking like you are from another lifetime ago!

2. DON'T OVERDO THE LIPS - We all love a full lip, but just like the brows over-lining your lip may cause regret later. As we age our skin changes so although over-lining slightly in some cases is ok, managing your expectations about how overdrawn your artist can make your lips should stay in check.

3. DON'T GO TOO BOLD - Less is always more! It is tempting when doing liner to go all out, but you can always make the lash enhancement bolder when you come back from your perfection service. Keep it soft, after all, it takes 6 weeks to heal and then you can make a more informed decision! Going a little bolder is easy at your touch-up session!

So there you have it! Whatever your reasons are for considering permanent makeup, we guarantee that saving time each morning will make the experience alone WELL worth it! Permanent makeup offers a transformative solution for those seeking to simplify their beauty routines and enhance their natural features. With our expert guidance and specialized treatments, you can achieve flawless, long-lasting makeup looks that empower you to look and feel your best every day.
