It can be tiring to reapply makeup several times a day, especially during the summer when the heat melts the makeup right off of your face. If you don’t want to have to worry about re-applying your makeup throughout the day, consider whether permanent makeup or airbrush makeup is right for your lifestyle.
- Cosmetic Tattooing
Permanent makeup is achieved through cosmetic tattooing, sometimes referred to as micropigmentation or dermagraphics. Cosmetic tattooing is etched into the upper dermal layer of the facial skin and is ideal for people who have sensitive skin that negatively reacts to chemicals and other ingredients used in traditional makeup products. People who want to look their best at all times, even when swimming, working out, or hiking may also choose to undergo permanent makeup treatments. Those suffering from Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or other debilitating conditions are also good candidates for cosmetic tattooing.
If you decide permanent makeup is right for you, you’ll meet with a cosmetic physician to undergo a thorough consultation. Then, your physician will choose a method to apply the pigment and begin the treatment. Often, one or two follow-up treatments are necessary to adjust the color or density of the pigment.
- Airbrush Makeup
If you don’t want to undergo a permanent makeup treatment but you do want flawless makeup coverage that won’t fade, consider airbrush makeup. Powdered makeup can look splotchy, but airbrush makeup is finely misted over the face, leaving even makeup coverage that creates a balanced and smooth look. This helps minimize uneven skin tone, sun spots, blemishes, fine lines, and other skin imperfections. Quality airbrush makeup can last more than 24 hours without smearing or fading, making it ideal for weddings, events, and long days that extend into the night.
