Permanent Eyeliner turns blue grey

Common question asked by my clients:

I had permanent eyeliner done in the past.  The original artist used Black pigment.  It looked great at first, but as the pigment faded, it turned Blue Grey.  Why does this happen and what can I do?

As mentioned before, all pigment fades over time.  Carbon Black pigment has a lot of the primary Blue color.  Therefore, as the other colors in the Black fade, the blue color remains.

Touch ups are essential to keeping permanent eyeliner looking fresh and crisp.  If you have blue grey liner, ask the artist to add Orange Pigment to the Black Pigment to counter balance the Blue.  The Orange pigment will turn the blue into a soft brown, and with the added black pigment, the blue will not be noticeable.

The nose is one of the most obvious facial features and many people are not happy about its shape, either of the nasal tip, of the bridge or even the width of the nostrils; so nose tip correction surgery is a very common form of rhinoplasty which can make the nasal tip more in proportion with the rest of the nose and the face It is just one of many rhinoplasty types

Tweeze, Wax, or Thread Brows?

 

Tweeze, Wax, or Thread Brows?

The benefits of having your brows waxed or threaded by a professional are that they shape and clean up the brows for you.  It takes the guess work out of tweezing.

However, I find waxing to be painful.  Afterwards, my eyelids are pink and the skin stings for a few minutes afterwards.   Not only does the wax remove unwanted hair, but it also removes layers of the epidermis, leaving skin with a burning sensation.

Threading is my preferred choice of brow hair removal.  The thread pulls out the targeted hair and leaves the skin intact.  Initially, it can be painful, but over time, we become less sensitive.  Most malls now have Threading Salons.

Clients ask me if they should continue to wax or thread after permanent makeup brows.  My answer is, “No”.  Since the shape is already there, just tweeze hair growth below the permanent makeup each month.   Permanent Makeup Brows also takes the guess work out of tweezing.

The term “Permanent Makeup Touch Up” can be used in many ways.

The term “Touch Up” is used in few ways.  In general, it means you’ve had previous Permanent Makeup procedure(s).

If you’ve never had procedure(s) done, most Permanent Makeup Artists provide a complimentary “touch up” visit 4 weeks after the initial procedure.  This is to allow modifications to the design and color, if needed.

Another common way to use the phrase “touch up”:
Permanent Makeup Touch Ups are procedures for when you notice that the original pigment color is fading.  Typically, it is done annually on brows, and every 15 to 20 months on eyeliner and lips.  An alternative term is “annual color boost”.

Typically it is a one time application where the permanent makeup artist may add more of the  original pigment because it’s faded, or use additional colors to warm or cool down the fading pigment.

Most artists charge per Touch Up Session.  Depending on how much the original pigment has faded, multiple touch ups may be needed.  To keep your makeup looking fresh, annual color boosts are recommended.
