We all live busy lifestyles and most of us are always trying to save money. One area that you probably never want to sacrifice, however, is your face. Do you ever skip purchasing your favorite lipstick or eyeliner? What about your eyebrows? Do you skimp on the services that help you keep them shapely? Chances are you would rather go without your daily Starbucks than give up your favorite makeup, but what if you did not have to do that? What if there was a way to save you time and money so that you could not only buy your Starbucks, but have time to sit and enjoy it too? The solution is permanent makeup – the service that helps make your lips, eyes, and other facial areas look spectacular without any work on your part.
Wake Up Beautiful!
Imagine waking up and getting out of bed looking just as good as you did when you went to sleep! It is possible with permanent makeup. Even though the thought of having tattoos placed on your lips and eyes might be scary, the process is safe and painless, leaving you with more time on your hands than you ever knew what to do with! Whether you use that extra time to sleep longer, exercise, have an extra cup of coffee or anything else is up to you – the key factor is that you have that time because you will not have to fuss with eyeliner, lip liner, lipstick, or makeup to cover up your unsightly scars.
Don’t Buy Makeup
Wouldn’t it be amazing to see how much money you stack up in your wallet just from not buying makeup? Whether you wear drugstore brands or you go high-end and shop at Macy’s and Nordstrom, you are probably spending a large portion of your income on beauty products. Permanent makeup can help you save some of that money by giving you a beautiful look without any products. The investment you put into the permanent makeup procedure is quickly recouped when you no longer have to buy expensive makeup products on a regular basis.
Don’t Forget Your Eyebrows
Even if you do not purchase any makeup specifically for your eyebrows, chances are you spend time and possibly money on getting them shaped and looking good every morning. If you opt for permanent eyebrows, the worries about how this important feature on your face looks will be a thing of the past because every time you wake up they will look fabulous and you will be ready to hit the road, once again saving time and money.
Are you ready to save time and money on your makeup rituals? Call our office at 850-912-8650 to set up your consultation to see how permanent makeup can help you look your best while saving you time and money.
After you undergo the procedure to get permanent lip liner, you have a healing process ahead of you. As long as you know what to expect and how to take care of yourself, the process should go off without a hitch. After the initial 4-6 week period, you will be able to enjoy your new, beautiful, even, and attractive lips!
The First Few Days
The first few days following the permanent lip liner procedure you will likely experience peeling. During this time, it is very important that you take care of your lips by keeping them moisturized with something like Bacitracin or a similar ointment. This helps to keep the bacteria away as well as keep your lips moisturized. When you drink during the first few days you should always use a straw, but you should never drink anything hot or even have hot soup during this time. Your food should also be cut into very small pieces to avoid any contact with the lips and you should avoid having water touch your face during this time – this includes in the shower or when washing your face.
Helping the swelling
Some people swell more than others so it is hard to predict just how much you will swell. The best thing to do is apply ice to the area 15 minutes at a time to help minimize swelling. Do not place the ice directly on the lips, however, just in the general area. Your lifestyle will determine how much you swell as well – the more rest you get, the better your diet, and the less stress you feel, the less swelling you will experience.
Avoid the Sun
It is very important that you avoid the sun during the first four weeks after having the procedure done. This area will be very prone to sunburn, which should be avoided. You should not go to any tanning beds during this time and if you spend time outdoors, you should use a sunblock with at least an SPF of 30 to protect the area; do not use chapstick until four weeks after the procedure.
The overall healing process should only take a week or two, but it is after four weeks that your lips will be at their best. If you rest and take care of yourself during the first few days after the procedure, you will have the best chance of bouncing back. If you are ready to enhance your lips with permanent lip liner, give our office a call at 850-912-8650. Our professionals will walk you through the procedure, including what to expect afterward to help you have the best experience possible while enhancing your beauty!
Believe it or not, the simple task of getting permanent eyeliner can greatly enhance your appearance, not to mention save you time and money in the long run. If you have made the decision to get this have this procedure applied to your face that will make your eyes look more prominent and even enhance the appearance of your eyelashes, you should know how to prepare to make the process as seamless as possible for you both before and after the procedure.
Choosing the Right Time
The first thing to consider is when you will have the procedure done. While getting permanent eyeliner is not a traumatic experience, it does require some healing time. We suggest that you do not schedule your appointment right before any big events in your life; try to choose a time that you have very few commitments and plenty of time to take care of yourself. You might need someone to drive you home after your procedure. Some people are able to drive, but because of the sensitivity of the eye area, it can be hard to focus after the procedure. Having someone drive you home can help you relax and start the healing process right from the start.
Getting the Proper Care
Before you come in for your appointment, it is best to set your home up with the right tools for your healing. A quick trip to the store to purchase things like OTC pain meds, ice packs, and artificial tears will help make things easier for you when you get home. You should also have your eyeglasses handy if you wear contacts as you will not be able to wear them for a few days. The more things you have ready for your recovery, the more you can rest when you get home, which will help to minimize swelling.
Preparing Your Eyes
It is very easy to prepare your eyes for the procedure. Basically, you should not wear any makeup to the office on the day of your procedure. You should also avoid wearing anything on your face or in your eyes, such as contacts. Basically, you should show up to your appointment with a clean, clear face – no makeup or accessories should be anywhere near your eyes so that we can start the procedure without a hitch.
If you are ready to give your eyes the beauty of permanent eyeliner, call our office to make your appointment. Our professionals will help you choose the thickness, shape, and color of the eyeliner that will bring out your features the most. Our professionals are very experienced in permanent eyeliner and giving our clients the exact look that they desire. Call us at 850-912-8650 to get your process started today!
If you took a survey of a group of women regarding how they feel about their appearance, chances are a majority of those women would tell you that there is something that they would love to change about themselves. Whether they do not like the shape of their eyebrows; they wish their lips were fuller; they do not like a scar on their face that has been there since childhood; or any other reason – not too many women are fully in love with the way they look. This can drain their self-esteem and affect the way they carry themselves. Rather than just dealing with what you were given, what if you had the chance to have permanent makeup applied, helping you to overcome the one thing that you do not like about your appearance?
Feel Good about Your Looks
Permanent makeup has a way of making women feel great about their appearance. They suddenly have control over things that seemed like something they would just have to “deal with.” When you feel good about your looks it spills over into other areas of your life. Suddenly you find yourself with more energy and are accomplishing more or you find that you want to take better care of your health because you are happy and want to live longer. These are just a few of the things that having a “perfect” appearance can do for you.
Go Further in Life
Believe it or not, women that feel good about the way they look are more successful in life. When you are not embarrassed about an unsightly scar on your face or about the shape of your eyebrows, you tend to be more forthcoming and willing to take chances. This typically translates into larger opportunities that open themselves up to you. When you reach higher levels of success you tend to reach even higher, setting even more goals for yourself. To think that it all started with the application of permanent makeup to help you love yourself just a little more is an incredible way to climb your way to the top!
If you do not love your looks, today is the day to start thinking about what would make you love them again. Are your lips not full enough? Maybe your eyebrows are not the shape that flatters your face, yet you cannot achieve that shape? Or maybe you were born with a scar on your face that makes you cringe every time you look in the mirror. Let our clinic help you overcome those inadequacies that make you love yourself less and help you build up your self-esteem. Call our office today at 850-912-8650 to get started!

Are you feeling on fleek? Do you know what that means? It roughly translates to a trendy saying that means, ‘Your eyebrows look good.’ Especially good looking eyebrows would be thicker than usual. The 2015 year brought thick eyebrows and natural looking girls to the forefront of fashion and beauty. The trend started within the fashion world (which trends don’t these days?) with thicker eyebrows growing into a coveted favorite by all. Currently, there are even eyebrow implants for those of the fairer or less hairy who still want to be part of this trend.
If eyes are the windows to the soul then the eyebrows would be the frames. How do you like your frames to look? Have full eyebrows taken their trend course? Doesn’t look like it. Full brows are certainly still a fan favorite. The most natural vision “is not too blocky or too fake,” says makeup artist Pat McGrath. “It’s about giving a little depth to the brows you already have.” Allure magazine states that “The basic rule is that your arch should line up with the outer edge of your pupil. How high, how long, and how thick you go depends on your face shape.”
One of the most difficult aspects of eyebrows is that most of us don’t have enough of them! Each little hair if over-plucked will look like a little scar that left its mark among your brows. Even trimming and plucking brows yourself can be cheaper but create an uneven look. A good rule of thumb is to pay once for your eyebrow wax or trim and watch where they are going with their tweezers, take a picture after and then follow up yourself. Professionals really do know best. Eyebrows can make or break a face.
So what to do if there is just not enough hair? A simple temporary solution is to use an eyebrow pencil. They come in all different shapes and colors but usually go a shade darker than your natural color as to enhance your face by darkening your own frames! The pencils come in either a genuine pencil form or more like a soft crayon. They can be bought almost anywhere.
Another temporary but not so simple solution: eyebrow dye. This can sometimes work for those unwilling to apply makeup daily this may be the easiest solution. But for those who have a softer hue of hair or fairer skin, this eyebrow dye that is usually used, may fade rather quickly.
A longer-term solution is permanent eyebrows to augment your natural ones. New techniques also mean that now it is possible to create eyebrows with a three-dimensional appearance. It also may be a better solution in the long run than spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on eyebrow pencils and creams over the course of years. This is one of the most popular permanent makeup applications the Permanent Makeup Clinic provides, and for good reason. It’s proven to be highly successful. If you would like to learn more about our permanent eyebrow application, give us a call at (850) 912-8650 or contact us here.
Permanent makeup is a big choice. It’s something that is worth your time and effort to make sure your decisions are safe and effective. Take a look at some advice that is shared by common professionals in the industry.
If it’s cheap or expensive, always do your research
No matter if it’s a butterfly tattoo on the small of your back or a new eyeliner permanent makeup tattoo, it’s part of your personal safety to make sure you do your research. Hopefully each place you look into helps give you personal testimonials and lets you talk to a past customer. Try to see if you can see photos and then follow up photos
Try not to go for an electric purple or current trends when going for a permanent makeup tattoo. Think about going for something that will look good in 30+ years. Remember, this is a tattoo on your face! Ask for tips and make sure to try out different makeup before you make any large decisions. It’s always hard to make a decision but think about going for a classic look that maybe isn’t as daring as you might want. You can always go back!
Make sure to take before and after pictures of yourself when you decide to go for permanent makeup. Test some different images and ask for pictures of others. This needs to be stressed at any permanent makeup clinic so you can track your own changes and see how others looked a couple of months, years and decades afterwards.
Permanent makeup can lead to bumps
Depending on the type of dye and the ink that is used during the tattooing process it is possible that allergies may arise. It would be best practice to have a test and make sure that there are no apparent skin allergies present. The skin is also super sensitive and can have different reactions in alternative places. So your eyebrows may react differently than the dolphin tattoo around your ankle. Just check in and make sure your skin reacts appropriately.
If you don’t feel comfortable, leave.
If any clinic or technician is making you feel uncomfortable or pushing you into any quick decisions, feel free to leave. No parlor should make you feel uncomfortable and like you have to make a quick choice on anything. Again, this is your face and tattoo on your face! Take the time you need to make the correct choices and feel comfortable with the staff. They are there to help you and help you find what you need.
Age affects healing time
The younger you are the quicker your skin heals.
Most importantly, choose the right permanent makeup clinic. Trinkette Parker, our experienced permanent makeup technician has years of experience and meets all State of Florida requirements for Permanent Makeup Application. Learn more here or call us today at 850-912-8650.
Ever wonder how to get the windows to your soul look wider, bigger and more ‘come hither’ if you will? Take a look at some of these tips below or talk to us. We can help you as well!
1. Use White Eye Shadow
So you don’t actually have to use an entire lid of white shadow to do the job but you can make sure to use a different white eyeliner than your usual black. Try to use the white both over and underneath your lids to create space. Think about it, if you have some space between your lashes instead of coloring them black, it helps create an illusion of fullness within your lashes.
2. Condition your eyes
One of the most important cosmetic things to do is to take care of your lashes. You DO NOT have to actually condition your eyes, but you probably should be taking care of your eye lashes. Use a decent makeup remover, not just whatever is closest. Use nice eye cream. Get some rest and make sure to curl your lashes and use a decent mascara. Remember to LOOK at the ingredients when you buy products.
3. Shape Your Eyebrows
Be on fleek! Take care of your brows girly! Fill in, pencil in, tattoo your eyebrows and make them as thick as looks good and full. A full eyebrow can change your face. Honest! Make sure you are taking a look at all of those important steps.
6. Play with Different Colors
Color is super important when trying to make your face look different. Remember that just because a solid teal color looks great on your best friend, doesn’t mean it will do the same for you. Play with your colors, use different palettes and ASK the staff at makeup stores. They are there to help you figure out what works best for you! Sit through the upsell to get a different version of what might work for your eyes, you never know, one of the staff could help you find your must-have liner!
7. Use Your Lips
Forget your eyes for the moment. Go for a bold lip and forget any heavy eye makeup all together. Yeah, that simple. Get a great mascara or apply some false lashes and leave your lids bare. A solid lip will attract different attention than you think.
8. Do you
Being yourself and holding yourself to look happy and sexy is the best thing you can do. It does sound cliche but confidence is sexy as hell. If you want to look good, feel good. Grab some lash lengthener, apply the black mascara and a red lip and get your butt outta the house! You will feel better when you know that you have done everything to look your best and have a good laugh. Those eyes will sparkle the more you giggle!
