Permanent Make-Up
(90 hours of classroom and clinic workshop)

Permanent MakeUpPermanent make up is a tattoo. There are three different places on the face that you can get permanent make up done; the eyebrows, the eye-liner and the lip-liner. The eyebrow is one of the most common one. Eye-liner is not as popular as it used to be; it can be a little bit painful. Make sure you go to somebody who has a Virginia Permanent Makeup licensed to do permanent make up or even some tattoo artists are licensed to do it. Lip-liner is probably a little bit out dated. A lot of people don’t do the permanent lip liner because you always have to wear lipstick.
