What to do next, if you hate your new Permanent Makeup procedure.





Q:  What do you do when you absolutely hate your Permanent Makeup Brows?


For new brows,  Be patient!  Permanent Makeup brow procedures take minimum 2 weeks to heal.  The brows will go through various transformation within the next 14 days.  The pigment will temporarily get darker, then dry to form a crusty scab.  Once the scab peels, the pigment should look lighter.

If the shape is not ideal, most brow shape can be modified.  They may not be perfect, but there's always room for improvement.  Find a Permanent Makeup Artist that specialize in correction procedures.

If the color needs to be altered, that too can be modified.  They can be lightened or darkened by a Permanent Makeup Correction Specialist.

We want our eyes to be the focal point, not our brows.  When the brow shape and color is ideal, your eyes should stand out.  Try to stay conservative and classic in brow style.  Do not follow trends.  Fashion magazines are trying to WOW you.  They are going bold to emphasize their products. Trends come and go, but your permanent makeup may linger for years.

Permanent Eyeliner turns blue grey

Before Permanent Makeup Brows and Liner                                                       After Permanent Makeup Hairstroke Brows and Eyeliner                                                C ommon question asked by my clients: I had permanent eyeliner done in the past.  The original artist used Black pigment.  It looked great at first, but as the pigment faded, it turned Blue Grey.  Why does this happen and what can I do? As mentioned before, all pigment fades over time.  Carbon Black pigment has a lot of the primary Blue color.  Therefore, as the other colors in the Black fade, the blue color remains. Touch ups are essential to keeping permanent eyeliner looking fresh and crisp.  If you have blue grey liner, ask the artist to add Orange Pigment to the Black Pigment to counter balance the Blue.  The Orange pigment will turn the blue into a soft brown, and with the added black pigment, the blue will not be noticeable.

Cold sores, herpes (HSV-1) for Lip Permanent Makeup Procedures

Common question asked by Permanent Makeup Artist when performing lip procedures..."Have you ever had cold sores or fever blisters?"  On average, 1 in 3 clients will answer "Yes".  Cold sores are highly contagious and is transferable to others.

What is the difference between Micro Blading and Tattoos

What is the difference between Micro Blading and other Permanent Makeup modalities. Microblading is a tool that is popular with the newer generation of permanent makeup artists.  The marketing of Microblading has dominated our industry in the past 2 to 3 years. Microblade is a hand held tool where the series of needles are configured tightly to form a "blade" or a "knife".  The artist uses the "blade" to cut "hair like" incisions into the skin.  The pigment is then smeared into the cuts.  The width of the blade is extremely narrow so that the artist can create an illusion of eyebrow hairs. Due to the narrow width of the blade, the artist must minimize the space in between each stroke.  If the strokes are placed too far apart, the tattoo may appear sparse when healed.  If the strokes are placed too closely, then the pigment from each stroke blend into the next stroke and causes pigment migration or a shaded look.  Immediat
