Working as a Permanent Makeup Artist

When you get started as a permanent makeup artist, you may need to market yourself and educate people on what it is you do before you get clients coming into your chair. However, as you start to impress clients and become more confident in your work, you may get referrals and fill up your schedule. The majority of your time should be spent with clients every day. With each customer, you must complete a thorough consultation, ensure that you understand what they want from their procedure, and spend as much time as needed on the procedure.
