NANO BROWS / LIP BLUSH/ EYELINER
What do you picture when you hear the words Permanent Makeup?
Eyebrows that look like they were drawn on with a Sharpie?
A dark lip liner?
That may have been true in the late 1970s, but changes in equipment and techniques mean that today’s permanent cosmetics have a natural, beauty-enhancing look.
According to the Society of Permanent Cosmetics Professionals, “When done properly, it should appear natural and look as good or better than topically applied makeup.” Permanent makeup (or PMU), also called permanent cosmetics, or cosmetic tattooing, is a form of tattooing. However, permanent makeup tattoos aren’t as deep as body tattoos. Permanent makeup also uses different pigments that fade away gradually in 1 1/2 to 2 years.
One of the biggest changes in the industry is that permanent cosmetic artists today use nano needles, some as small as .18 millimeters, allowing artists to do very fine, detailed work to achieve NANO Brow design. Years ago, the thinnest needles used were .40 millimeters.
