If you’ve made the decision to accentuate your look through permanent makeup – whether by getting permanent eyeliner or hair follicles – finding the perfect permanent makeup artist is definitely the next biggest decision. What type of person are you looking for? Who can you trust with something so permanent that everyone is going to see?
What to Look for When Choosing a Permanent Makeup Artist
First thing you should look at is reviews. Check Yelp, Facebook, Intsagram, Yahoo, Google, and find out what other people are saying about them. Did the majority of reviewers love their experience? Or not? Message them! A lot of times people are happy to give you more information if you ask. If someone went out of their way to give your potential permanent makeup artist a great review then they are probably worth considering.
Show Me the Proof
Second thing – photos! A great permanent makeup artist is happy to show off their work. They don’t have stock images. They post the real deal. They show you how it looks right after and a few days later so you know what to expect. If the person you are considering doesn’t have pictures online of the specific procedure you want done, just ask them. A great artist will be more than happy to give you what you need to make you feel more comfortable.
Do They Have the Experience?
It’s safe to say that the more experience your permanent makeup artist has, the more techniques and information they will have access to. Many times experience in multiple areas of artistry will make your permanent makeup artist more knowledgeable and well-rounded. Kenny, our awesome permanent makeup artist, has a background in creating amazing tattoos which he did for a number of years prior to changing his focus to permanent makeup. With the great amount of experience he gained, he was able to bring many of those same techniques to the world of makeup artistry. He is an expert in his field and has created away to make the permanent makeup procedures painless. A lot of his techniques come from his past experience.
Do You Feel Comfortable?
Do they answer your questions with ease? Do they follow up with you when you ask? Do they go over all the different phases that you will go through after the procedure? Do they talk to you like a friend, not just a client?
When you go about choosing your permanent makeup artist, we want to remind you to look at all of these different components. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and never work with an artist that isn’t honest with you. You should feel comfortable and confident in your decision. Lastly, be sure to do your research. Don’t just look at the cheapest price. This is something you will have the rest of your life. You should give yourself the best.
