The Scoop on Permanent Makeup

Tattooing is an ancient art that has been traced back to some of Earth’s earliest inhabitants. Humans have also painted and decorated their bodies since those early times, viagra generic troche but the Ancient Egyptians may have been the first to combine the two art forms to enhance beauty. The earliest record of cosmetic tattooing was found in Egypt and dates back to the era of the Great Pyramids nearly 5, mind 000 years ago!

Since then cosmetic tattooing, also called permanent makeup, has gone in and out of fashion but never disappeared. Cosmetic tattoos were wildly popular with the upper classes of Victorian England and New York City society. Before World War I, women would regularly go to Chatham Square to have their faces tattooed with permanent cheek blush, lip color and eyeliner.

Beauty That Never Fades

The lure of permanent makeup is in beauty that never fades. It is makeup that takes no time to apply and always looks fresh and perfect. Its appeal to time-strapped career women (and men) and society leaders is even more attractive today than it was decades ago when perennial beauty was the goal. Today, permanent makeup can be both time-saver and confidence-builder, ensuring that you look your best every minute of the day — and night!
