Put On A Fresh Face: How Permanent Makeup Can Transform Your Morning


Shaving off minutes from a busy morning just became a snap.

Mornings are like a race. Or like a strategic battle that requires a well-orchestrated and planned out schedule. Who showers first? Who makes breakfast? What to wear? Where's that left shoe? Hair up or down? Somewhere in that scramble to get out the door, going makeup-less becomes a foregone conclusion.

Instead of dealing with the inevitable "You look tired today," now you can have your cake and eat it too. As seen on "The Doctors," permanent makeup may be the answer for all time-starved women. An aesthetic procedure similar to tattooing, it can be used for eyebrows, eyeliner, eyelashes, lip lines, full lip color, scar camouflage, beauty marks, or as an imitation of hair. Permanent makeup offers options to women who previously could not wear traditional makeup due to allergies or anyone with medical issues that include loss of eyebrows or lashes.

Technically speaking, permanent makeup is implanting pigment in the dermal layer of the skin. Since it is under the skin, traditional makeup can be worn over it should you choose different colors. While permanent means it won't smudge or wash off, it will fade gradually over time and will need to be touched up every few years to keep it looking fresh.

As with any type of elective procedure, an expert should be performing the work. In this case, the person should be technically trained as well as artistic. Permanent makeup is more visible and less scarring is seen on people with fairer complexions.

So go ahead, push that snooze button a couple more times - Your face is taken care of.
