The Ultimate Guide to Permanent Makeup

Have you ever wished a flawless face of makeup could remain intact, so that when you wake up you can just roll out of bed ready to go? Thanks to permanent makeup, that wish could become a reality.

Permanent makeup refers to cosmetic tattoos that help you recreate your favorite makeup looks in a semipermanent manner. Chances are, you've already heard of microblading. Thanks to an exponentially exploding interest in brows over the past few years, the eyebrow-tattooing technique has gone mainstream. But brows are just the beginning. You can also get just-bitten pink lips, sharp-lined eyes, or even faux freckles.

Though this is a wonderful option for those who crave a daily makeup look that's fuss-free, as cosmetic ink gets more common, it's important to remember that the key term in semipermanent makeup is "permanent." As seamless and easy as it sounds, in the end, you are still making a permanent decision — at least one that'll last for a few years.

So before you commit to aesthetic tattoos to amp up your makeup game, we've outlined some of the most essential things you'll need to know before seeking the most popular permanent cosmetics treatments. (It's also a great idea to chat with your doctor about whether these treatments are a fit for your body.) From how it works to how long it lasts, here's exactly what you need to know about microblading, lip blushing, blush tattoos, eyeliner tattoos, freckle tattoos, and scar camouflage before the moment that needle hits your face.
