Permanent Make-Up.

I had a challenging time deciding whether or not to post this in the Tattoo forum, or Lifestyle. Since one is a subcategory of the other, I landed here! So, what woman wouldn't love or appreciate the thought of not having to reapply make-up every day? Permanent make-up. It's not for everyone. I am considering it however. A friend of mine just had her eyeliner done. Looks marvelous. This particular friend is a 66 year old So.Cal girl and has always been on the cutting edge of fashion. When I saw her eyes this past weekend, I thought to myself, "Hey, I want that!" Next month she is having her eyebrows done. Mine are so dark brown they are nearly black so I know that procedure is not for me. My nail tech has had her eyebrows done for 35 years, she is Vietnamese and this is a normal thing in her country. Mini me's eyebrows are transparent! Something she may consider when she is older, much older.  The eyeliner technique took 4 hours for both eyes. She will undergo two  more applications before it is done and lasts up to 10-years at a total of $275. Not a bad investment if you ask me.

Has any GuG family member had the procedure or any permanent makeup done?

The closest I have is semi permanent, with my tinting (dyeing) of my eyelashes. Which as I've proclaimed before, is the BEST thing in the world... No more mascara for me! They also do eyebrows, which could be a thought for mini-me before she's "much older"!

I have thought about applying permanent eyeliner but I don't know....kinda scary...I've seen some people with permanent make-up and it looks really good..... But hey, if you're down for it, got for it! ;)

Several years ago, I was working as a waitress in a local luncheonette.  There were 2 Spanish women who worked in the kitchen, and they went one day after work together to get their eyebrows done.  They both looked great!  Thing was, it was August, and, well, it's hot in Jersey in August, and even hotter if you work in a kitchen.  Sweat hurts in an open wound, and a fresh tattoo is essentially just that, an open wound.  I felt so bad for the 2 of them, all sorts of "ai yi yiii!!!" coming from the kitchen for about 2 weeks while they healed up.  Then again, not too bad, they could have gone in December......

It is really a great investment and I have considered it, but Im not certain yet.

Re: Permanent Make-Up.

i'm relatively certain the lip liner technique is not for me. i would consider tinting the lips, but having just the liner looks incomplete to me.

I would afraid to do it, because my tastes change, and God forbid it came out bad I would be stuck with it.

Re: Permanent Make-Up.

i'm really struggling with it. i love to run around town with no makeup, hair pulled back, visor on, and gym shorts/shirt. having to do this with permanent eyeliner will throw off my au'naturale look and make it an awe'ful incomplete look!

Re: Permanent Make-Up.

I don't think I can even consider this. I mean I like going days without makeup sometimes. And I'm also changing it up when I do wear makeup. This is not for everyone, what if I looked creepy afterwards, like some wannabe rockster. Oh, the thought!Surprised
