Permanent Cosmetics: Who and Why?
Who are my typical permanent makeup clients? Any woman over 35 years of age. When we’re young, we have that extra collagen in our lips and they naturally look flush, full, and pretty. As we get older, we lose that collagen and our lips pale in color and lose fullness. My mother, who is 83 years old, once told me that the first thing we lose as we get older is our memory… Well, I disagree. The first thing we lose is our eyebrows… The hair becomes sparse, uneven, and the tails are gone. Needless to say, my beautiful mom was one of my first clients!
Why: Here are some reasons why a client would seek permanent cosmetics:
1. Allergies to conventional makeup.
2. Illness: Hands shake, or can’t see well enough to apply makeup correctly.
3. Cancer: Brows or lashes don’t always come back after chemotherapy.
3. Save time: Women who want to look presentable, but they’re always in hurry. These women can either apply their makeup in the car while driving, or they can come see me……
