Q. Will I really look like myself.. Only Better?
Permanent cosmetic makeup helps replenish what time has taken away and gives back precious time you normally spend “putting on your face”. You can save up to 100 hours in a single year that were formerly spent struggling to draw eyebrows evenly or eyeliner half-way straight. That’s two and onehalf weeks of free time plus the money you’ll save buying new and expensive cosmetics that rub off, smear, smudge and disappear during the day.
Permanent Makeup is not intended to replace cosmetics completely. Because the color is placed “in” your skin and not “on” your skin a more natural, softer look result. When you’re ready for a special occasion, you can apply as much additional makeup as you wish.
