Permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing, also known as micropigmentation. Permanent makeup artists use tattooing techniques to apply designs that would resemble makeup. Color enhancement of skin on the face, eyelids, lips, and eyebrows are all of the areas that permanent makeup is traditionally applied to. It results in enhanced facial features, that would typically be done with temporary makeup. Permanent makeup is the virtually the same thing as getting a typical tattoo. However, special techniques are used, and there is virtually no downtime.
