What differentiates permanent make up from the other traditional forms of make-up? Some people may conclude that women spend too much time trying to look beautiful. There is no doubt that applying traditional make-up is time consuming as it reduces time at our disposal by anywhere from 5 minutes to a couple of hours. This is far too costly for some who believe 24 hours a day is not enough for them.
There are also other medical conditions that prompt people to opt for permanent make-up such as Microblading and tattooing and even eyeliner or lip liner. We all want the perfect lips or the perfect illusion if you prefer. Also known as micro-pigmentation, it serves as a reconstructive procedure for people suffering from alopecia which is a condition that causes hair loss or even vitiligo which is the absence of pigmentation on the skin. Cancer patients who have lost their nipples can also have tattoo ink on reconstructed nipples to make them look realistic. Permanent make-up procedures helps such individuals get a permanent solution to their situation. You wake up with makeup!
