Is every morning a permanent war – with your makeup? For many, putting on makeup is a daily struggle. And yes, the struggle is REAL! Yet it is a struggle that we continue to pursue – for the sake of looking pretty. Well, here’s the good news guys – we don’t have to continue to struggle! We all just need a little dose of permanent makeup. Here’s the down-lo on permanent eyeliner.
What is permanent makeup? Well, it’s not really permanent. It’s actually semi permanent, meaning it only lasts a few years. And in terms of eyeliner, that’s usually good enough because as you age you’ll probably want to change up the style anyways. But what exactly is it? Basically permanent eyeliner is like a tattoo on your eyelids, except it obviously doesn’t go as deep into your skin as a tattoo does (that would not be a good situation!). So its applied like a tattoo and it looks like a tattoo – but it’s not a tattoo.
But another thing it has in common with tattoos, and we’re not going to sugar-coat this – it hurts. The good news is, it doesn’t hurt as much as a tattoo. Still, it would not be a bad idea to take a pain killer before your procedure to numb any discomfort.
What are the pros and cons of semi permanent eyeliner? The pros are pretty obvious – You don’t have to crawl out of bed every morning dreading your everyday makeup routine. For the next few years, your makeup will be permanently there, keeping you beautiful day and night. Unfortunately, the fact that the makeup lasts so long is a double edged sword. In other words, it’s permanent – whether you like it or not. You can’t just wake up one morning and decide you want to wear a different colour or style than the day before. Whatever you choose, you are stuck with – like it or not.
So is it worth it? If you are a routine person who wears their eyeliner the same way day in and day out, and who knows exactly what they want – then yes, it’s definitely worth it. If you are the type of person who likes to change things up, I’d stray away from anything permanent, especially on my eyes.
