Permanent makeup has evolved over the years. This has started since the 1970s in the form of a tattoo artist. However, there is a difference between the body and cosmetic tattoos. The body tattoo takes up to the third layer of the skin. While the cosmetic or permanent makeup is only up to the first layer of the skin. See the photo below.
Furthermore, it is originated in Ancient Egypt. There, both men and women from high status to lower class use eyeliner to define their eyes and a shield from wrinkles. And also, to protect the skin from the sun. Eyeliner is not just a style but a connection to their religion and gods that they adopt many years ago. On the ground of this, having makeup come to be a source of their inner power and to protect from evil.
Now that technology has made headway so is the world of makeup. Many women have loved the changes in their looks when they put the makeup on. A lot could not leave their homes without putting some color on the face, lips, or even on our eyeliner! Makeup has truly changed the way every woman lives. When permanent makeup became a trend, even men found a solution to their problems as well!
This is the generation of a #IWokeUpLikeThis. Just like having your brows done, women would take so much time doing their eyeliner. Plus, that messy look when you made a wrong stroke! We wanna kick that away! Right, girls? Wake up having a cat-eye look!! Many of us have struggled on how to put it perfectly.
The permanent eyeliner is just an easy and quick technique. The procedure will mark attention to the eye and make the lashes look growing. And, greatly enhance the shape of your eyes. The procedure will take one hour to finish. A needle is used to deposit ink into the first layer of the skin. And to avoid any complication, stop taking any blood clotting medication 3 days prior to your appointment. Just to minimize possible bleeding. Pregnant, nursing or having a severe sickness is not a good candidate for this procedure, you might have encountered difficulties in the healing process.
Permanent eyeliner will last for 2- 3 years. Touch- up is recommended to freshen up the color.
