Are you tired of spending hours each day perfecting your makeup routine? Do you want to wake up every morning with flawless brows, lips, and eyeliner? If so, permanent makeup may be the solution you've been searching for.
But with so many artists out there, how do you find the right one for you?
When searching for a permanent makeup artist, it's important to understand your artist's skill level, not just their price. Price does matter but you'll be tattooing your face and permanent makeup is a long-term commitment so it's important to not choose someone because they're cheap. Look for someone who specializes in the specific service you want, whether it's microblading, ombre powder brows, lip tattooing, or eyeliner tattooing. Check out their portfolio and read reviews (such as Google reviews) from previous clients to get an idea of their skill level and customer satisfaction.
Search their Instagram for after photos you like and to get to know them personally which will tell you if this is someone who you can trust. I can't stress this enough. You're probably going to see your artist several times over the years for touch-ups or other procedures so, just like your hair stylist, it's important that you vibe with them.
Sanitation is also crucial when it comes to permanent makeup. Make sure the artist follows strict hygiene protocols and uses sterile equipment. They should be a registered Body Artist in their county, have a current Blood Borne Pathogen certificate, and be registered with the county Health Department. These certificates are required by the Health Department to be displayed where clients can see them.
In California, performing permanent makeup in someone's home is not legal.
Aftercare and touch-up services are also important factors to consider. A good permanent makeup artist will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your new look and offer touch-up services as needed.
By following these tips and doing your research, you can find the perfect permanent makeup artist for you and achieve the flawless, low-maintenance look you've always wanted.
