Reasons to Consider Permanent Makeup

Reasons to Consider Permanent Makeup

Many women wear makeup as part of their daily look, and feel uncomfortable leaving the house without touching up their brows, lips, or eyes. If you’re tired of losing sleep, running late, and spending money to maintain your makeup, intradermal pigmentation can help cut down how much you’re putting into your makeup regimen. 

At Laughlin Plastic Surgery, in Annapolis, Maryland, Dr. Daniel Laughlin offers a wide range of cosmetic skin services, and can help you decide if permanent makeup is the right choice for you.

The appeal of permanent makeup

Intradermal pigmentation, or permanent makeup, is a form of cosmetic tattooing. Instead of getting a pattern or picture drawn onto your skin, a cosmetic dermatologist will add subtle pigments to mimic the appearance of eyeliner or lipstick. 

It takes a steady and delicate hand to draw on your brows, line your lips, and apply eyeliner. There’s lots of room for error, and you’ve likely experienced days where you couldn’t get it right. With intradermal pigmentation, you can fill in your brows and lips permanently. 

This not only saves you time and frustration in the morning, but also stress and anxiety during the day. Sweat, rain, wind, and even idly touching your face can smudge your look, forcing you to touch up and re-apply your makeup repeatedly. With permanent makeup, you don’t have to sweat the small stuff. 

While intradermal pigmentation can do a lot for your daily routine, it’s not a replacement for everything in your makeup bag. You might still need to apply full-face products like foundations and blush, but you can skip some of the more time-consuming parts of the process.

Reasons to consider permanent makeup 

Every cosmetic procedure is a personal decision, and there are plenty of reasons you might be interested in permanent makeup. These might include: 

Permanent makeup doesn’t mean you’re limited to one look forever. Many cosmetic dermatologists actually recommend subtlety. You can always add more eyeliner or lipstick, but you can’t take away pigment. 

A natural lip liner can help hold darker lipsticks in place, and simple eyeliner can be transformed into the perfect wing when you’re feeling bold. However, on days where you don’t feel like doing anything, don’t. Your classic look is already complete, and you can walk out the door feeling confident and carefree.
