Colorado

Are you looking for a beauty career that uses high-end technology, changes rapidly in response to market demands, and is increasing in popularity every year? Consider the field of permanent makeup and what it can offer you.

This field does not technically involve the use of makeup. Rather, you use tattoo needles and pigments to create the same effect as makeup.

Licensure of permanent makeup artists is overseen by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. To work as a permanent makeup artist, you must provide proof of hepatitis B vaccination.

Using tattoo needles can be tricky, so you need plenty of hands-on practice before you graduate.
