Education Details

Permanent makeup application is essentially tattooing the face with extremely small, precise needles that are loaded with micropigmentation. Since this is a permanent procedure that may carry the risk of side effects, informed consent is extremely important. That's why you spend lots of training time learning how to give clients a proper consultation, determine whether or not a client is a good fit for permanent makeup, and provide thorough information on what to expect from the procedure. You may spend several weeks talking about color theory and different types of micropigmentation. Since you can't change your permanent makeup with the season or event, you'll need to be able to select colors that suit your client and offer timeless beauty. In addition, you may explore the properties of micropigmentation and how each color may fade over time. Proper application is at the core of permanent makeup. Plan on spending lots of time working with permanent makeup tools to learn how to appropriately apply pigmentation and work with people's skin.

Working as a Permanent Makeup Artist

This versatile degree gives you the freedom and flexibility to work in many different settings! Some permanent makeup artists work in tattoo parlors alongside traditional tattoo artists. Others work in dedicated salon areas with cosmetologists and other beauty professionals. Still others work in dermatology offices to meet the highest standards of cleanliness and sanitation. No matter where you decide to work, plan on building relationships with area tattoo artists, surgeons, and medical doctors. Getting referrals is a major way that many permanent makeup artists get business. In this field, you won't just work with people who want permanent makeup for cosmetic reasons. There are many medical conditions that may lead people to seek permanent makeup, including cancer, alopecia, and developmental disabilities that may make it hard for people to apply their own makeup. Being compassionate and professional with all of your clients can help you build lifelong relationships. Local permanent makeup artist Earlene Evans notes that loving your job is important. She says that her passion for her work is apparent to her clients. As a result, she has become established in the cosmetology industry of North Carolina. With hard work and dedication to your business, you too may become a part of your beauty community.
