Makeup can enhance your beautiful features, making you feel more confident and feeling great, but if you have unsteady hands, makeup can be a real pain. If putting eyeliner and lipstick on every day causes you frustration and disappointment rather than happiness, it might be time to consider permanent makeup.
A great alternative for people with disabilities
If you suffer from a physical disability, such as arthritis or Parkinson’s disease, it might be hard for you to accurately apply your makeup. If your lipstick is uneven, it might put a frown on your face rather than the radiant smile it used to provide. Permanent makeup can help put an end to that problem because it provides you with permanently beautiful lips, eyes or skin, depending on the type of permanent makeup you choose.
Get the look you want every time
Makeup can alter the way you look, giving you a more defined or brighter look, depending on what you desire. If your favorite shades do not do it for you anymore because you cannot achieve the cat eye look you desire or the perfectly lined lips you used to be able to achieve, permanent makeup can give you that look without the worry. Now not only do you save time, but money too as you no longer have to buy makeup and feel like you wasted it if your hands shake and your makeup becomes smeared.
Permanent makeup provides confidence
People that suffer from physical disabilities often suffer from diminished self-confidence because they feel embarrassed about their physical issues. Let permanent makeup boost your self-confidence right back up by making you look and feel your best every single day. Even the days that you might not feel up to doing much of anything, one look in the mirror can boost your self-confidence right back up because you will look beautiful and ready to take on the world without lifting a finger.
Save your energy
There is nothing more frustrating and upsetting than not having the ability to perform the tasks you normally perform. Even though putting on makeup might not seem like much, for people with unsteady hands, it can become a real chore. Rather than wasting your energy on frustration, take advantage of the benefits permanent makeup offers, allowing you to save your energy for other tasks you must accomplish.
If you have unsteady hands from a physical disability, talk to our professionals about the look you desire. We can help you determine what type of permanent makeup would make you look and feel your best so that even on your worst days, you can look radiant and exhilarated. Call our office today at 850-912-8650 to start your consultation!

Permanent makeup, as the name suggests, is permanent. This means that the markings of the makeup will always be on your face, like a tattoo. What you will notice is a change in the colors that you choose. Generally, the lighter colors fade faster than the darker colors, but there is no way to predict how the colors will react on your face since every person’s pigment is different.
Is fading bad?
Many people automatically assume that since permanent makeup fades, that it is bad. They do not want to have it reapplied so they avoid the procedure. What many people forget, however, is that even with fading, the color still looks good and in fact, it can complement your face even more as you age. A bright, vibrant color you loved in your 30s might not be the same color you want on your face in your 40s, so the fading color can be advantageous for you.
Can you get enhancements?
If fading color is not the look you desire, you can obtain permanent makeup enhancements whenever you feel it is necessary. The timeframe in which you will need the enhancements really takes time to tell. Some people want their makeup looking as fresh as possible, which means obtaining enhancements every few years. Other people do not need enhancements that often either because their colors do not fade as fast or they do not require “fresh” appearances that often. You can decide along the way, what is right for you.
How you can help
There are certain ways you can help your colors last longer. The better you take care of your skin and the more bad habits you avoid, the longer it will last. Things to avoid include:
- Direct sunlight
- Avoiding proper care of the skin on your face
If you moisturize your skin every night, use SPF 30 or above while you are in the sun and avoid smoking, you can make your permanent makeup last longer. In addition, you should avoid tanning beds at all costs, as they can damage your permanent makeup much quicker than any other lifestyle habit.
Are you curious about permanent makeup and how long it will last on your face? Call our professionals today at 850-912-8650 to learn more about the procedure. Our professionals are happy to walk you through the procedure, discuss colors and help you decide if permanent makeup is the right choice for you. There are many different options to choose from to help you enhance your appearance and keep your skin looking beautiful without the need to apply makeup on a daily basis.
Generally, there is little to no maintenance required for permanent makeup. How long it lasts and how much it fades depends on the pigment of your skin and how well you care for it. That being said, there are certain things you need to know about how to perfect your permanent makeup, making it last for as long as possible.
Securing the Second Application
Typically, most people require more than one application of permanent makeup. When we apply for the first phase, it saturates your skin. You can think of it as the “base coat” for your makeup. The second coat helps to perfect the look you desire, including darker or more vibrant colors. Another benefit of having the second coat of permanent makeup is the ability of our professionals to perfect the color. There is no way to predict exactly how a specific color will come out with your skin pigmentation. The second coat allows us to adjust any undesired colors that appear.
The Color is not Permanent
Your permanent makeup is permanent in a sense, but the color itself is not as permanent as you think. We tattoo the makeup itself to your face; however, the color does fade over time. How much it fades depends on your habits. Do you spend a lot of time in the sun without protecting your face? Do you take any medications that could affect your facial skin? Do you smoke? These are all factors that affect how long the color lasts. Obviously, the better care you take of your face and overall health, the longer the colors will last.
The benefit of the fading colors, however, is the ability to change the colors out every few years, if you so desire. If the color fades completely, you can opt for a completely different color. But you always have the option to continue with the same shade, just having it touched up so that the color is vibrant and full once gain.
Scheduling Future Appointments
When you choose your first colors for your permanent makeup, decide whether you want them to last for the long-term or if you desire frequent changes. If you do wish to change the colors, choosing lighter colors is best as they tend to fade faster. If you are more of leave it and forget it type gal, then choosing darker colors that will not fade as fast will benefit you the most. Typically, these colors last for several years, enabling you to not worry about your makeup for a long time.

Chemotherapy is hard on not only your body, but your mind too. As your body changes to accommodate for the medications, you might start to feel self-conscious about your looks. The good news is that there are ways to feel beautiful even when you have to battle such a serious illness. Permanent eyebrows are one way to ease the pain of losing your hair during the process. Because many patients lose not just the hair on their scalp, but facial hair as well, permanent makeup can help to alleviate the devastation of the hair loss.
Looking Your Best Helps You Feel the Best
Patients going through cancer treatment can feel lousy not just because of the medication being pumped into their bodies, but because of the devastation their appearance suffers as well. When you are able to look your best with very little effort, it is much easier to put a smile on your face and fight the battle that is ahead of you. Looking in the mirror and seeing eyebrows that are perfectly shaped and colored can be just what you need to put that smile back on your face.
Obtain the Same Look
About one month before you are due to start chemotherapy, you can visit us to get your permanent eyebrows completed. This allows us to see the natural shape and color of your existing eyebrows before the hair begins to fall out. This way we can enhance the lines that already exist, helping the devastation of the future potential hair loss affect you less. When you are able to keep the same look, you are more likely to feel self-confident and secure in your look because you do not have the “cancer patient look.”
Eyebrows Frame Your Face
Some people do not worry about eyebrow hair loss while others think it completely changes the shape of their face. With the use of permanent eyebrows, we are able to reframe your face, giving you the look you desire. They can bring out the color in your eyes, give your face a little more color and make you feel like your old self despite the struggles you are going through at the moment.
As a cancer patient, you will have good and bad days, but that does not mean you need to look the part. On those bad days, let the convenience and beauty of permanent makeup take over. When you look in the mirror and see the true you looking back, you will have something to smile about and a reason to feel better.
While we cannot help alleviate the pain that cancer causes, we can help you look your best, which can make you feel better in the long run. Call us today to talk about the possibility of permanent eyebrows either before or during your chemotherapy treatment to see how we can help you.

Making the decision to get permanent eyebrows is obviously a big decision, but sometimes there are real reasons behind the decision besides the fact that you just do not want to pluck them any longer. Permanent eyebrows help give your face definition, a healthy look, and can even make you feel good about yourself. If you are looking for a reason to make it “okay” to get the procedure done, consider the following two reasons that permanent eyebrows are a good choice.
We have all made mistakes with our beauty regimens, whether you were trying to fit in with the latest trend or you had your own crazy thought and started plucking just a bit too much, you could still be suffering the consequences today. Eyebrows do not grow back as well as hair on other parts of our body does, leaving you with a less than desired look on your face – the one thing that everyone sees on a daily basis and plays a big role in your self-confidence. Unless you understand the eyebrow growth process, you might not think twice about plucking and making a mistake, but the truth is if you pluck during the middle of the growth cycle, new hair does not grow in its place. The best way to overcome the look of thin or oddly shaped eyebrows is to get permanent eyebrows. Whether you wish to create an entirely new look or just fill in those sparse spaces on your face, this is a great way to regain the look you desire.
Alopecia is one of the most common reasons for hair loss and it can occur in eyebrows, not just the scalp. Similar to what you could experience if you over plucked, alopecia can leave your eyebrows looking sparse or even non-existent, depending on the severity of the condition. Rather than being forced to walk around without the beautiful eyebrows you deserve and dealing with the embarrassment of your condition, you can use permanent eyebrows to give you the youthful, sexy look back that you deserve. The process is simple and will not interfere with any regrowth that your eyebrows might experience when the condition is in remission.
If you have over plucked your eyebrows or you suffer from alopecia, consider permanent eyebrows to help you reshape not only your facial features, but your self-esteem as well. The simple procedure is done right in our office and our technicians are empathetic and gentle when it comes to dealing with clients that have a sensitive reason for not having perfectly shaped eyebrows. Please reach out or give our office a call at 850-912-8650 today to get your eyebrows back to being bold and beautiful, just like you.
Permanent lip liner might seem like an odd choice for permanent makeup, but when you realize the benefits of this procedure, you just might change your mind. If you are on the fence about it, consider these following reasons to give it a try.
Get a More Defined Look
Are you tired of your lips looking just okay? You can achieve a more defined look with permanent lip liner. This procedure will not make your lips fuller, but it will give the illusion of fuller lips, which is probably the look you are after. With this simple procedure, you will have a much quicker healing time and even a more pleasurable look than you might achieve with injections.
Get a Brighter Look
Who doesn’t want to brighten up their appearance? There are numerous color choices when you try to enhance the appearance of your lips, but choosing one that is slightly brighter than your natural skin tone will really brighten your skin tone and make your lips truly stand out.
Make your Lips more Balanced
Do you have uneven lips – one that is thicker than the other? Chances are you have tried a multitude of products to help your lips take on a more even balance to no avail. Or even if you found a product, you probably have to reapply it over and over again in order to keep the look going. With permanent lip liner, you get the appearance of balanced lips without the hard work – the way you look when you wake up is the look you will love for the rest of the day – no work involved!
Make your Appearance more Aligned
Aside from your eyes, your lips are the other balance point of your face. They are one of the first things that anyone notices about you. If you have lips that are less than perfect, chances are your teeth do not look as attractive, you probably smile less, and your face seems a little “off.” A little permanent lip liner can correct all of these problems and more!
