Considering Permanent Make-up? Here’s 5 Risks & Rewards

One of the newest trends in cosmetology is getting makeup permanently applied. Instead of spending every morning in the mirror, you can wake up ready to go. However, many people are skeptical. If you’re not sure if it’s right for you, here are the 5 risks and rewards of getting makeup permanently applied.


1. Permanent – One of the main risks of permanent makeup is that it’s, well, permanent. You better be very committed to the decision, because you are going to have that makeup applied every single day of your life. You can’t change it when you want a different look.

2. Possibility you won’t like it – Imagine going in for a tattoo and it doesn’t come out how you imagined. This is very similar. When you go in to get tattooed makeup, there is the possibility that you won’t like the results when it’s done. There’s not much you can do after the fact, either.

3. Possible side effects – While rare, in some instances, getting this procedure done can actually lead to some undesirable side effects. You could potentially get an infection, granulomas, or scars. If you do decide to move forward, be sure to do to a reputable salon and get it done by an aesthetician licensed in cosmetology.

4. Fads change – How people wear their makeup today is significantly different than how they wore from even five years ago. Years from now people will change how they wear their makeup again. Unfortunately, microblading and other permanent features can force you to stick to an old-fashioned look, making you yourself look older.

5. Lose the natural look forever – We all look better with makeup. However, sometimes your man might want to see you completely fresh-faced. Men constantly say they like the natural look, so you’re losing out on that look forever.


1. Save time – Putting on makeup takes a lot of time. When you wake up with your makeup already done,you can save a lot of time in the morning. Not to mention you won’t be forced to put your makeup on in the car.

2.Use less products – The more product you put on your skin, the more damaged it gets. When you have makeup always applied, you can use less everyday. This keeps your skin as clean and fresh as possible.

3. Save money – Any beauty expert knows that makeup in expensive. Plus, you can’t get cheap makeup from the pharmacy. You have to get high-quality makeup! With all of the different products and getting each product in different colors, it adds up! Permanent makeup will help reduce the amount of money you spend on makeup because that’s already done for you. Plus, you won’t have to spend extra money at the salon for microblading by an aesthetician or hire the cosmetologist to do your makeup before an event.

4. Great for people not good at makeup – There’s a reason YouTube is filled with thousands upon thousands of makeup tutorials. Applying makeup can be hard. Avoid the hassle by just having it applied to your face permanently. You won’t have to worry about smearing your eyeliner.

5. Looks great – Finally, the reason people get permanent makeup is to look great all the time. You’ll look good when you wake up in the morning. You also won’t have to worry about reapplying your makeup or it coming off in the rain. When you make the decision to get makeup tattooed on you, you never have a bad makeup day.
