Accentuating the Eyes: The Art of Permanent Makeup

Author: Dawn Willard

Article:
Ask anyone which facial feature they most often notice first and
many times the answer is the eyes. Eyes are the most expressive
feature on the human face; through them we see emotion,
thoughts, secrets and reflections of ourselves. To illustrate
the power of permanent makeup and the art of eyeliner let me
tell you about one of my clients. The star feature of her face
was fabulous almond shaped eyes. Following cosmetic surgery to
take her back in time a bit, her eyes healed into a different
shape, which made the outer corners awkwardly rounded and one
lower eyelid partially drooped. Before agreeing to another
surgery to fix it, she searched for an alternative way to regain
the almond shape. With a little design strategy and meticulously
placed pigment all around her eyes, we lifted the droop and then
by marking into puckered scar tissue, we re-created the
almond-type point at the outer corner of each eye. My client was
amazed at how precise and subtle the permanent makeup appeared
and she was thrilled to be able to go without topical makeup
once again.

When I think of the power of permanent eye makeup, another
client always comes to mind. Advanced in years, she wanted the
outer her to reflect the youthfulness of the inner her. The blue
color of her eyes was stunning, and definitely worth flaunting;
however, a few wisps of blonde eyelashes and a total absence of
eyebrows did nothing towards the cause. She started out
conservatively with very soft, natural-looking permanent
eyebrows and lash enhancement. A year later she returned, asking
for a bolder look. Here is what she had to say: "Even with the
plastic surgery (3 facelifts), the permanent makeup is what gave
me the most self esteem. I wish I\'d known about it and done it
years ago.

me the most self esteem. I wish I'd known about it and done it
years ago.

Consider the Advantages

Permanent makeup appeals to a wide variety of people. Busy moms,
athletes, travelers, equestrians, chefs, models, doctors,
dancers, police officers, busy career people and busily retired
people have all been clients of mine. In my experience the best
argument for a cosmetic tattoo is simply convenience.
Individuals who suffer from allergies, toxicity issues, poor
vision, hair loss or disabilities that limit manual dexterity
have benefited from permanent makeup. Of course, the most
rewarding aspect of permanent makeup is the most obvious: it
stays put! Permanent eyeliner will never smear or rub away
through watery eyes, perspiration, wind, snow, rain, fatigue, or
a long night\'s sleep. For those of you who like the compliment
of eyeliner to your face, permanent makeup can give you the look
you want without the extra work or cost involved with
traditional makeup.

The Difference Between Lash Enhancement and Eyeliner

Skillfully applied lash enhancement looks very natural, not at
all like makeup. For a lash enhancement, one or more shades of
color are placed in a sprinkle or a line at the base of the
eyelash hairs only, making the lashes appear darker and thicker.
Rather than eyeliner, I recommend lash enhancement to women, or
men, who want a lift to their face "naturally". It makes a good
argument for "less is more".

Eyeliner begins with lash enhancement and then widens above or
below the eyelashes. Permanent eyeliner can have a hard edge, a
softened edge, or even a smudgy, shadow look placed where it
most enhances you. It can be very precise, with delicate, crisp
endings to the lines; or it can be a soft powdery look. Eyeliner
really rocks as a way to bring a flattering color lift to the
face. Sometimes a subtle blend of multiple colors creates the
perfect effect. I recommend you think conservative, tasteful,

Choose cosmetic tattoos that will wear well through changes in mind, lifestyle and age. To bring out the trendy, glamorous or outrageous expressions of you just add topical
cosmetics.

Like Makeup Only Better!

Permanent makeup is an excellent way to enhance your natural
facial features. Permanent eyeliner works especially to perfect
the balance, shape and overall look of the eyes. Time and again,
I witness permanent eyeliner, or simple lash enhancement, lend
power, alertness, confidence and youthfulness to the faces of
both men and women. To read more about the art of permanent
