The Art of Permanent Makeup
is a process where color is permanently inserted into the Dermal layer of the skin using fine needles dipped in Hypo-Allergenic pigment.
Pigments are derived from vegetable products and are either pre-mixed or mixed manually creating a broad palette from which to choose. The pigment bonds to the skin cells and is visible through the translucent outer/Epidermal layer.
This is the answer to many people's psychological problems regarding the appearance of their eyebrows or eyeliners.

Permanent Makeup - The Hand also known as Embroidery Technique
The Embroidery technique is far more exact, very gentle and less invasive than the rotary/ machine technique. Permanent Makeup applied by a machine also tends to be much heavier and more obvious in appearance, whereas the Embroidery / Hand technique is much more natural and subtle in appearance, yet effective to enhance the natural features.
Many makeup artists use a machine or tattoo gun to apply Permanent Makeup. This machine technique often involves severe discomfort, is less accurate and precise, needs more touch-up procedures and provides a lot less flexibility in customizing your make-up. Liezel utilizes the Hand or Embroidery technique for applying cosmetic permanent makeup.
How Painful is Permanent Makeup?
Although it is nothing in comparison to the pain of applying an actual tattoo, most people do experience some discomfort. This may vary from person to person according to each individual's pain threshold. There are different methods to help with pain management, including various topical anesthetic ointments, anesthetic locals as well as nerve blocks.
Can I be certain Permanent Makeup is safe and hygienic?
Yes, indeed, as this is an utterly serious matter to avoid any kind of infections. All needles used are brand new and sterile for each and every client. All machine parts are thoroughly sterilized and kept in a sanitary way. The procedure is done wearing synthetic gloves, a new pair for each individual.
