How did you avoid looking fake with tattoo eyeliner and lip liner?

I want permanent makeup, but I am afraid it will look really obvious and give my face that fake, "painted" look.  Can this be avoided?

Look at their photos is the only way to see if their aesthetics match your own. Many of them have a "joker from the batman" look. Some like the fake look, but a more sophisticated beauty will make you look naturally pretty. Check their photos.

Clancy- I'm sorry you've had a painful experience with your permanent eyeliner application. With the use of topical anesthetics, both prior to and during the procedure, most clients feel virtually nothing. There are so many options in the way of pain control, I'm a bit disheartened that you've had a bad past experience. If I can help you find someone in your area, please email me via my website. I'm in NJ, but know of reputable practicioners across the US. Best of luck... Dorrie Buccafusca www.permanentmakeupstudios.com

Fabulous Permanent Makeup requires knowledge of the skin, structure of the face, traditional color theory as well as color theory as it relates to the living canvas of the skin. Color takes on an entirely different personality once placed in the skin, which also has color of its own. It also requires a thorough understanding of traditional cosmetic makeup application. While it is a form of tattooing, again, it is a specialized form. The Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals - SPCP can be contacted for help in finding a specialist in your area. Always schedule a consultation before making an appointment for any permanent procedure. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising, so start asking people in your area. Call your local eye surgeons, plastic surgeons, hair salons, and ask who they recommend. Once you begin hearing the same name(s), schedule a consultation and look at their finished (healed) work. Pictures of fresh work are not a good indicator of what the finished result looks like. Take time, do research, ask questions and make an Informed Decision. Your face is too important to gamble with.

Permanent make up tends look artificial when the pigment colors are harsh and the application is too deep. Applying color more superficially with a light touch tends to look more natural. If you're planning to do eyebrows, don't wax or shave off all your natural brow hair. The permanent color should be hidden within the natural brow hair. Removing too many brow hairs will lead to a very "painted-on" look. If you have no brow hair at all, ask the technician to fill in the eyebrow area with individual hairstrokes rather than a solid line.
