The Pros and Cons of Permanent Makeup
To permanent makeup, or not to permanent makeup, that is the question.
We all feel our best when we’ve showered, styled our hair, and applied our makeup. For as lovely as makeup looks, we don’t always have the time it takes each day to cosmetically “put our face on.” At times like this, you might feel it would be wonderful if makeup applied itself. Permanent makeup can take away the stress and time it takes to doll up your face with beautiful cosmetics.
Permanent makeup mimics the look of just applied lip liner, eyebrow pencil, and eyeliner. Permanent beauty marks can also be applied to your face if preferred. Permanent makeup is done through a process called micropigmentation, where a tattoo pen is used to inject permanent ink into the skin. This allows your eyeliner, lip liner, and eyebrow pencil to never wash off, so your face always maintains these youthful makeup highlights.

Of course, there are pros and cons to undergoing a permanent makeup procedure. Each procedure takes between 30 minutes to 2 hours, and the area will be numbed with a local anesthetic.
If you’re thinking of going the permanent makeup route, some pros are waking up every day with your cosmetically applied face on. You can shower, bathe, and swim and your makeup won't wash off. This saves you time and the peace of mind in knowing you always have a fresh face appearance. Permanent makeup may be the perfect solution for the busy woman who's always on-the-go. This works well if you have allergies to makeup, sensitive skin, difficulty moving the joints in your hands due to arthritis, or you prefer extra sleep.
As good as the concept of permanent makeup sounds, there are some negative effects. Any time you use tattoo type instruments, you risk infection such as hepatitis or staph bacteria. Your body may have an allergic reaction to the ink, scar tissue can develop in the area where the ink is applied, and if you don’t like the outcome, the removal process is pricey and painful.

Permanent makeup has advantages and disadvantages. The final decision is up to you. If you do go the permanent makeup route, each procedure can cost you between $300 to $1200. Prices will vary depending on the quality of the work, what procedures you choose, and which professionals you hire.
