What To Expect From A Consultation With A Permanent Makeup Artist

If you’re one of the many millions of people who want a safe, lasting alternative to a time-consuming daily makeup routine, permanent cosmetics could be the solution you’re looking for.

Permanent cosmetics, or micro pigmentation, is a process in which pigments are tattooed into the dermal layer of the skin. Popular procedures include eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip liner though top technicians offer a wide range of procedures ranging from standard beauty enhancement to cosmetic camouflage of scars.

If you’ve decided that permanent makeup is right for you, the first step in the process is consulting with a qualified technician. This appointment won’t include any actual procedures, but it’s absolutely crucial; it’s during this consultation that you discuss your needs and find out what procedures are available to give you the results you’re looking for. Here are the basics of what you can expect during your consultation.

Your technician will ask you about your desires and expectations.

You should arrive at your consultation prepared to describe what you want permanent makeup to do for you, and it’s important to be specific. “I want my eyebrows, eyeliner and lip color to be waterproof and sweatproof” gives your technician a lot more information than “I want to look good all the time.”

Your technician will explain the procedures and ask about your general health history.

Micropigmentation procedures are safe and very well tolerated, but it’s important for you to understand the process and for your technician to know if you have any health issues that could interfere with proper healing.

Your technician will help you decide on the details of the procedures.

If you have questions about the colour or style of the permanent makeup you’re considering, now is the time to ask. A well-qualified technician has experience with the procedures and can help you decide what colours, tones, and styles will best meet your needs.

You’ll discuss payment and may have some photos taken.

Your technician will discuss payment at your consultation and may ask for a deposit. Your technician may also take pre-procedure photos, which are used in the technician’s portfolio and for insurance purposes.

You’ll set a date for the procedure.

You and your technician will work out the best date for your procedure, and you’ll get any necessary instructions such as not wearing makeup to the appointment, etc.
