There are many positive things to like about permanent makeup (PMU) – it makes your beauty routine simpler and saves you time, and it can save you quite a bit of money depending on the brands, and your frequency of purchase. And of course, the most attractive aspect of all, it keeps your face looking freshly done all the time. One of the most popular procedures in PMU is eye-lining. Probably because of the attractiveness of not dealing with eyeliner smudges – Ever. If you’re looking to get this procedure done, here are a few facts and tips on what to consider.
First factor will be cost. This is influenced by your location, your PMU technician’s experience, and the extent of the work you want done. For example, are you getting the top eyelid only or both? Is the artist an apprentice, or an experienced PMU professional? The overall range is somewhere between $200 - $800 however, it’s good to keep an eye out for deals on sites like Groupon, Living Social, and others.
Next, you’ll have to decide on a color. This is a personal choice however, think about a dark brown rather than black because sometimes the black pigment can come off somewhat bluish and, dark brown is softer on the features.
When it’s time for the procedure, the PMU technician will apply numbing cream. It takes 20 minutes for it to take effect. Next comes the device. The Spektra Xion S from Microbeau is perfect for PMU procedures because of its slimmer grip that tapers down, and its shorter strokes for softness. The density of the skin is thinner around the eyes and you don’t want a machine that goes too far or too deep. The Xion S Stroke Wheels are 1.8mm and 2.5mm.
The results? Beautiful and pleasant, like this eyeliner by Elite artist Amie Connors - and also very practical! All the makeup you will need for your beauty routine might just be lotion and some quick strokes of mascara, and you will also be able to enhance your look with regular makeup when you’re in the mood.
