Choosing the Right Permanent Makeup Artist
Choose your technician carefully by considering their training, experience, and examples of their previous work. Check for licensing, certifications, and be sure they have liability insurance. Ask for references from previous patients.
You should never shop for price in this matter. This is your face and a bargain price isn't a bargain if the end result is less than satisfactory. There are many technicians who have had inadequate training who are performing these services. The regulation is so minimal in most states that consumers need to educate themselves before deciding on where to go.
Permanent Make up is truly an art, not just a process. Your goal should be to find a permanent make up artist, not just a technician. Your results will be only as good as the artist you choose.
You want natural soft cosmetics that enhance your face without being too bold or over done. Color knowledge is one of the most important factors to a quality application of permanent cosmetics. Just look at all the regular cosmetic on the market to see how important color is. You want an artist who understands skin tones and colors that will enhance your face.
Techniques vary for different results so make sure you ask if the artist is capable of giving you the look you want. You want an artist who can do corrections, alterations and camouflage. It makes a big difference in the talent and experience of who performs the procedure. Look for someone who will give you soft, natural results.
Take time to check out the artist you are contemplating for services. It is well worth the extra time spent to be assured of quality permanent make up that you can enjoy for years to come.
