Applying makeup correctly is a skill that takes a
while to master. When first experimenting with it,
many teenage girls slather it on, as if trying to
send the world a bold-faced message that they are
now adults. Unfortunately, though, they usually end
up looking like little girls who got into their
mothers’ cosmetics while playing dress-up.
Certainly, many women remember those early days of
trial-and-error (and error, and error), when wearing
makeup was new and exciting.
Luckily, with maturity, most women gain an
appreciation of subtlety, and refine their
techniques to produce more elegant, understated
looks. Naturally, we all discover and develop our
own styles, too, as we test myriad combinations of
foundations, and the endless palettes of lipstick
and eye shadow colors that are available.
course, our complexions continue to change, as time
marches on (on our faces, that is!); and,
eventually, wearing makeup can turn from being
capricious and fun, into a very serious business.
trouble is that this leads some women to revert to
the heavy-handed method of application, using it to
fill in lines and wrinkles, or to draw on, or
augment, lips or eyebrows. Not only does this result
in exaggerated, unnatural-looking features, but the
makeup may also settle into lines, making them even
more noticeable, or melt or fade away. This is the
point where many women begin to lament the cruel
irony that they originally started wearing it
because they wanted to look older.
As the years pass, failing eyesight,
unsteady hands, and various medical conditions, can
also make it difficult to apply cosmetics properly
and evenly. Moreover, once it becomes a tiring,
time-consuming chore, many women simply give up on
it. Sadly, this can be very depressing, and may even
make some people self-conscious enough to avoid
On the other hand, happily, most of
these situations can be resolved. If you’ve

Even people who can still easily put
on makeup may need help with other problems, such as
thinning lips or lashes, or eyebrows that are
sparse, or non-existent, either from over-plucking,
or because of medical conditions. In such cases,
Marcia will add fullness and definition to lips,
with color and liner, or design natural-looking
eyebrows that complement her clients’ faces
perfectly. She can also give eyes a more youthful,
animated look, with permanent eyeliner, and make
lashes appear more voluminous as well.
The procedures are safe, and normally
do not necessitate any downtime. The entire process
may require 2-3 visits, as the initial application
acts as a primer, which will fade several days after
the first session, until it is revived with further

Marcia, “and one small change, such as adding a
slight arc [creating a fuller bow] to an upper lip

realize that you had anything done; they’ll just
notice that you look refreshed.”

Lip Color and Lip
This procedure is both lip liner and lip-fill. The
vermilion border, or lip line can be tattooed
slightly outside the border to give the appearance
of larger, more pouty lips. As time marches on, our
lips begin to appear thinner, irregular, and faded.
The lips take a lot of wear and tear and it is
little wonder that as we mature, women want plump,
colorful, well-defined lips, which we enjoyed in our
youth. Over time, sun damage, medical conditions,
hormonal changes, and tissue trauma all contribute
to loss of definition and natural color. Permanent
Makeup application is a major contributor to a more
youthful appearance. Note: If you [the client] has
ever had a cold sore or fever blister, then you must
get a prescription from her doctor, enough for a
total of 2 or maybe 3 procedural applications (4
weeks apart). The three prescribed drugs for this
are: Zovirax, Famvir and Valtrex. Typically the
régime to follow would be to start taking the
medication 3 to 4 days prior, during and after your
Lip Liner can give the appearance of a more defined
lip or even-out an asymmetrical lip border. Most
women eventually want to have their whole lip
colored in permanently, because it looks the most
What to Expect
with Permanent Lip Color and Lip Liner
Lip color and Lip Liner tend to be quite dark upon
completion of the first application. This is
temporary. Expect the lips to go through various
changes - lips will be darker the following day and
around the tenth day will look like they were never
done; about the twelfth to fourteenth day the
pigment resurfaces. So expect that one minute your
lips will look very dark, the next hour they will
look like nothing was done at all. Sometimes the
pigment may even appear to have vanished from the
treated area completely. It is still there, but went
in rather as a "primer" coat that will be brought to
the surface with a second application. This occurs
because of certain qualities in an individual's
skin; it usually has nothing to do with the type of
pigment used or the way it was applied.
Lips may feel chapped for several days, and it's
recommended you apply A&D Ointment, which can be
purchased at your local drugstore. Bruising may also
occur, however this is usually minor and may appear
in the typical "black and blue" patch or streak, or
in red. If you feel it necessary, any bruising may
be concealed with makeup. Clinque's Continual
Coverage is one of many concealers available today.
It is available for about $12-$15 at larger
department stores. If you use this type of product,
avoid getting it on the actual permanent makeup line
itself. Baby oil (mineral oil) is probably the best
way to remove this concealer without disturbing the
permanent makeup ... ... but this does not mean you
can use baby oil on the treated area but ONLY to
remove the concealer.
When the area has healed, there is a much greater
chance that the permanent make-up will be too light
or too subtle. It is much easier to add pigment than
to remove it. If it is initially applied too
radically, the client is almost always unhappy, at
least until she gets used to the change in
appearance or has it corrected.
Permanent eyebrows are for individuals who have very
light, thin or no brow hair. It is an excellent
alternative to applying pencil daily, and spares you
the embarrassment of losing your brows due to
swimming, perspiring or wiping your forehead.
Eyebrows are a key feature of the face, so without
them our ability to communicate is lost because our
face appears expressionless. Of the three primary
permanent makeup procedures: eyebrows, lips and
eyeliner, I consider the eyebrows the most important
feature to a person's overall appearance. I have
worked with some clients who have no brow hair at
all, although sparse hair is also very common, due
to over-tweezing, or aging. Permanent eyebrows help
normalize a person's lifestyle and/or put a
traumatic event, such as an accident or medical
condition behind them.
What to Expect
with Permanent Eyebrows
With brows, the right one may not match the left if
the swelling has gone down in one area and not the
other. If you are concerned about any reaction you
are experiencing please contact me or give your
technician a call.
Brows may scab over and have a "Groucho Marx"
appearance that lasts for a few days, but when the
scab lifts there's a beautiful brow underneath. If
you get a scab let it heal naturally - don't pick at
it, or the line will not appear uniform.
During touch-up applications, make-up can be
balanced, supplemented, darkened, lightened, moved,
changed or altered in any way necessary. This is
when we lengthen a brow or move them closer.
stated, eyes are the "window to our soul." People
often refer to another's eyes as sexy, thoughtful,
tired, cheerful, lifeless, or heaven forbid, beady,
and so on. Our eyes define how we feel inside and
how life is treating us. They are our means of
projecting thoughts without words. Because our eyes
are so expressive, it must be why we want the area
surrounding the eye to look its best at all times.
If we are in other's company, our eyes are the focus
of conversation. With eyeliner the lash line is
darkened to produce a lush, full lash-line effect.
This can be applied to either the upper, lower or
both lash-line areas. Eyeliner, properly selected
takes the "tired and washed out" appearance out of
our expressions, as well as the entire face. Sports
activities, hobbies that were avoided due to the
fear of topical makeup coming off, and just simply
looking your best at all times are yours for the
What to Expect
with Permanent Eyeliner
With conventional cosmetics, applying pencil or
liquid eyeliner is one of the more challenging
make-up tasks we, as women, do in make-up
application. We have to tug at our eyelid; it
smudges and is difficult to apply. However,
Permanent Makeup can be applied as light as you want
or made darker and thicker to bring out the eyes.
Permanent Makeup doesn't smudge, and there is no
more tugging or pulling on delicate eyelid tissue.
Permanent Makeup eyeliner applied the right way can
uplift a drooping eye. What does the procedure feel
like? This procedure tickles more than anything. No
one wants anyone near their eyes, however, once the
area is numb this procedure can be quick and is
quite tolerable and worth the outcome.
Eyelash Enhancement brings out the eyes just like
eyeliner does. A line is drawn or dots are placed
between the lashes, which gives the illusion of
fuller lashes. The color used is typically the same
color as your lashes.
What to Expect
Each procedure behaves differently after its
application. Depending on which procedure you've had
done, you will see various changes occur in the next
14 days. Immediately after the procedure is done
your make-up may look like it has been stamped onto
your face. This is normal.
After your micropigmentation (permanent makeup)
procedure you may experience swelling. This can
result from the procedure itself, or from a cream or
ointment applied during or after (that's why I
suggest you apply A&D Ointment only) otherwise do
not disturb the treated area. Very rarely is the
swelling excessive, but in any degree it is nothing
to worry about and usually it is short lived. Ice
packs applied at 10 minute intervals can control
this. When the swelling dissipates, it usually goes
down in one area first and then the other.
Due to varying degrees of difficulty of applications
associated with lip/skin texture, scarring or
wrinkles around lip lines from cold sores, age laser
treatments, medications, smoking, sun or tanning bed
exposure and skin care products, we can not
guarantee "perfect" results in two visits.
Therefore, if irregularities in lip color develop
from the above mentioned conditions additional
procedures may be necessary. These conditions also
affect the longevity of the permanent cosmetics
causing some persons to require maintenance sooner
There are other cosmetic tattooing procedures:
beauty marks, areola (nipple) restoration, cleft lip
camouflage, and scar camouflage (see Special
One of the most exciting new news for permanent
cosmetics or micropigmentation has been its
application in the treatment of scars. “Relaxation
in the scar tissue” can be achieved; thus the
patient can assume a more normal appearance and
achieve increased comfort. It is not unusual for the
patient to feel immediate relief from an initial
scar relaxation treatment.
The hypothesis for the success of a single needle is
that the applied energy to the scar tissue band is
highly focused like a surgical laser. Thus, the
surrounding tissue is minimally affected by the
physical disruption and, therefore, minimal
secondary scarring results. With this precision, the
practitioner can safely select the areas for scar

changes but only scar contractures, the practitioner
can treat these areas with a “dry probe” after
applying an antiseptic and/or anesthesia, followed
by a light lubricant.
Thus, a scar that is a year old can be colorized
with flesh tone pigments to blend in with
surrounding skin tissue (for example, plastic
surgery scars)1. This would be considered
Historically, the traditional approach to skin
camouflage was to cover the affected area with one
or two colors. This static approach is unsuccessful
and leaves the patient with an obvious artificial
appearance. With the use of a pointillistic approach

practitioner can achieve a more natural, blended and
three-dimensional appearance to the skin (for
example, nipple areolas)2.

Lightening and Pigment Lifting Process
There are many products and processes that strive to
lift or lighten unwanted pigment. Lifting or
correction is attempted by irritating the skin,
inducing accelerated exfoliation, controlled burning
of the skin with various laser treatments and the
process of dermabrasion, or sanding of the skin. All
of these methods represent an assault on the skin,
thus increasing the probability of scarring.
First the client must inform the technician how long
the pigment has been in the skin. It is easier to
get fresh pigment out of skin, versus pigment that's
been in the skin a longer period of time. That being
said, the success rate of lifting small amounts of
pigment with this relatively new method has proven

How It Is Done
Prior to getting your permanent makeup tattoo, the
technician slips on latex, vinyl or nutrile gloves
and examines your skin to make sure there are no
scrapes, cuts, or broken skin. The area is either
swabbed with alcohol or sprayed with an antiseptic
solution to prep the area for your permanent makeup
procedure. Intradermal pigmentation is
micro-insertion of pigments into the dermal layer
of the skin.
Sometimes for eyebrows the technician transfers a
stencil of the tattoo (your desired design) onto
your skin. Some technicians may draw it on with a
non-toxic marker pen. You are then asked to verify
the placement, position of the design, which is
about to be implanted into your skin. If everything
is to the client and technician's satisfaction, then
a thin layer of topical anesthetic is spread over
the area to numb the skin.
Any type of tattoo is applied using either a small
electric device (a traditional tattoo coil or rotary
pen) or a hand tool. The needle assembly holds
multiple needles to implant colored pigments. The
FDA regulates tattoo needles and this technique is
medically proven to be completely safe.
tattooing device basically works like a small sewing
machine: the needle assembly rapidly moves up and
down, pushing the needles into the middle layer
(dermis) of the skin, implanting the chosen pigment.
The technician holds the machine with a steady hand
while guiding it along the skin. The speed and power
is controlled by a foot switch or pedal, much like a
A needle penetrates the
skin only a couple of millimeters as the tubes or
needle caps limit the needles from penetrating any
deeper. A double needle is used to make a very fine,
delicate line. Multiple needles grouped together are
used for shading and more solid "fill ins". The
technician wipes the area to view work, and then
(Frequently Asked Questions)
Q. What is Permanent Makeup?
Makeup is pigment placed under the skin (dermis) in
a series of dots. These dots or lines, are placed
close together to create the desired image.
Q. I'm anxious about letting anyone else design my
makeup, especially if it is permanent. What if I
don't like the design or color after the procedure?
technician will assist you when determining
design-work if you wish. She will take your facial
shape into consideration, design a brow, eyeliner
and or lip liner that suits your facial features the
best. You should approve of all design work before
she proceeds with the procedure. This is your face,
your procedure and it must meet your expectations.
Q. What if eyebrow styles change?
eyebrow shape will be based on your own preferences
in combination with the technician's suggestions for
a classic shape that will remain in style and will
not be affected by fads or by cosmetic surgery.
Q. What if eyeliner goes out of style?
is exceptionally difficult to find a stage in
history where the appearance of darker, thicker
eyelashes was not fashionable. With the eyeliner or
eyelash enhancement procedure your natural lash-line
is enhanced for a fuller, beautiful, natural result.
This procedure is also very popular for men with
light colored or sparse eyelashes. It provides
wonderful eye definition. Thin, medium and wide top
and bottom eyeliners are also very popular. However,
when I was doing procedures, I preferred a more
conservative, natural look.
Q. What about people who have allergies?
Many people love Permanent Makeup because it
replaces the topical cosmetics they may be sensitive
to. Contact lens wearers especially enjoy not having
to worry about makeup becoming lodged under their
Q. I have heard that these procedures require
multiple sessions. Why is that necessary?
is necessary for several reasons. One is due to the
condition of the skin. Each skin type is different.
Some skin types are thicker and healthier and more
pigment will be retained in one session. Also, fine
details, additional color depth, or design
adjustments are easily made after the initial
healing is complete. A follow-up visit is usually
scheduled, if only to meet to discuss the healed
outcome of the procedure, and agree that no further
work is necessary. However discuss all these
concerns with your technician. Typically it takes a
total of at least 2, possibly 3 applications, 4
weeks apart to achieve the desired outcome.
Q. If this is permanent, why are future touch-ups
major issues affecting the pristine appearance of
your procedure is exposure to the sun, changing
health conditions, medications, anti-aging products,
and hormonal changes. At some point in time, usually
several years after your initial procedure, you will
want to refresh the color. If you return to your
original technician she should offer a good
discount, otherwise starting over with a new,

be. Permanent makeup is a multi-session process.
During the healing process the first application
fades 50%-80%. If at that point you are dissatisfied
with your permanent makeup (extremely rare), then no
harm is done because much of the pigment (usually)
will have flaked off - this is the way the body
heals itself. If anything, most clients return
requesting more color, a thicker line, etc. After
each subsequent application 4 weeks apart, the area
retains more color, giving you your final outcome.
Q. Is this considered a safe process?
it is a safe process conducted by a trained
technician that follows the proper sanitation and
sterilization requirements. The technician opens a
sterilized tool and a manufactured sealed sterilized
needle at the beginning of the procedure. The used
needle is placed in a Sharps container after the
procedure has been completed. In addition, all areas
the client will come in contact with while at the
office are sterilized. By conducting procedures in
this manner clients are assured that their health
has been safeguarded to the highest standards. After
leaving the office, it is then the client's
responsibility to care for the procedure in a manner
that encourages normal healing.
Q. Will I be uncomfortable during the procedure?
people experience some discomfort during the
procedure. This is described as a stinging or
plucking sensation, which subsides as soon as the
procedure is over. We have excellent topical
anesthetics, which normally reduces discomfort to a
Q. How soon before I can resume normal activities?
most people, usually the same day. Procedures
normally produce little swelling or long lasting
trauma to the surrounding skin. As a result, you may
resume normal activities, as long as they do not
have an adverse affect on the healing process. For
example you wouldn't want to introduce bacteria into
the treated area by sweating while jogging. It is
recommended you not plan a special function the day
of and up to 3 days after having your permanent
makeup, only because it's a new look and will be
darker than the final outcome.
Hand Tool vs. Machine
The difference between the two is one tool has a
motor and the other doesn't. Both methods implant
pigment, but it's the technician's technique that
determines the outcome. The hand method takes a
little longer than a machine, but that should not be
a reason to choose the machine instead. Your
technician will know which one to use based on her
evaluation of your skin condition.
The Pain Factor
all have different tolerances to pain. Very good
topical cream anesthetics are now available, which
greatly reduces much sensation. The area gets quite
numb and clients typically experience minimal
Why Are Several Applications Required?
previously mentioned, even if the permanent makeup
looks like it "faded away", it is still there, but

brought to the surface with a second application.
This occurs because of certain qualities in an
individual's skin; it usually has nothing to do with
the type of pigment used or the way it was applied.
techno jargon: when a foreign substance such as a
pigment molecule enters the skin, the body's immune
system tries to engulf and remove it using the
bloodstream, sweat glands and/or lymph system. (The
average size of a pigment molecule is 6 microns.)
The cells that govern this foreign body reaction are
unable to completely surround the molecule because
it is too large, therefore they cannot expel it.
That is what makes the color permanent and usually
still visible after 10 years or more.
Using the analogy of painting a house or car, you
wouldn't think to purchase a car that had only one
coat of paint, would you? Your house and car require
numerous coats of paint to prolong their color.
Permanent makeup is similar - it needs multiple
layers of pigment to achieve the desired outcome and
to retain longevity.
The technician likely will provide you with an
ointment to use for a week. Apply with a clean
Q-Tip, not your fingers. Use only what the
technician gives you. Leave the tattooed area
exposed to the air so that it can begin to heal but
keep the area moist with the ointment given you
until the healing is complete. It takes about a week
(usually seven to ten days) for a tattoo to heal on
the surface. Healing is still occurring an
additional 2-3 weeks beneath the skin. For at least
7-10 days, you should not apply cosmetics over the
area and NO PEROXIDE, or other creams!!! The lips
will get chapped and the brows may develop a little
scab, but be sure that you do not peel off the area!
If it flakes, let it flake off by itself. If you
peel it off, the pigment comes off with it. It is
also advised not to “look” in the mirror for at
least a week (two is better) You will only find
something to “pick” and/or “criticize”, and the
complete finished look should not be judged during
this healing time. First, you will worry that the
color is too dark. Then, you will get used to the
darker look. The third truth, is that you will have
lost 30-50% of the color. A good procedure is
knowledge and proper Aftercare, not luck!
Is There Anything I Can Do To Help Make This
The client can help minimize pain by following these
guidelines: Avoid alcoholic beverages, aspirin
products, garlic and Vitamin E, three to five days
prior to any procedure. On the day of treatment,
avoid caffeine. Alcoholic beverages and aspirin
products are blood thinners, which will increase
sensitivity and promote bleeding. (*If your
doctor has you on aspirin or blood thinning
medication, you will be advised to talk to him or
her and get a written consent). Following the
"After Care" instructions will greatly improve the
success and longevity of your permanent makeup
procedure. In the long term, sun exposure and
anti-aging creams will be what cause your permanent
makeup to fade. Most clients like to "refresh" their
permanent makeup in a couple of years to brighten
NOT expose your tattoo to direct sunlight for at
least two weeks. If you do, you may get sunburned or
the color may fade pre-maturely. Use sunscreen
religiously. Do NOT swim, Jacuzzi or swim in the
ocean during this healing time. This could cause
pigment to fade as well. You should always apply
sunscreen if you expose your tattoo to sunlight
(this means "artificial light", too). Be
advised that indoor tanning beds will also fade your

Pricing System for Permanent Makeup
Permanent makeup should
be thought of as a two-step process for best
results. That applies to new procedures and
re-coloring of faded makeup. Some permanent makeup
artists offer a second visit (touchup) that is
“complimentary.” But that touchup cost is factored
into the original price, so if you don’t need one,
you’ve paid for something you didn’t get. Also, some
technicians allow only a 30-day deadline for the
touch-up without charging extra. Our fees are
simple: You pay when services are actually
performed. Initial procedure fees are higher because
first visits are the longest and greatest amount of
work. Second visit (touchup) fees are less and paid
only when that procedure is performed (if needed).
We believe this system is fair and more affordable.
Also, we allow a 90-day period for touchups before
an additional charge may be imposed (if more work is
needed due to fading).
