What determines the success of Permanent Makeup?


It is known, Permanent Makeup is an effective, convenient, safe and long-lasting alternative to the daily makeup application.

Most customers believe that the Permanent Makeup Artist is solely responsible for the result. However, this opinion is erroneous.

Let’s have a look at different aspects such as:

  • Permanent Makeup Artist’ skills 
  • Health and Safety 
  • Aftercare 
  • Equipment and Consumables

To find out how this particular combination helps to achieve a successful result read below.

Majority of Permanent Makeup Artists claim that a successful result depends on both the Artist and the Client. And they are absolutely right as both are equally responsible for the result.

Permanent Makeup Artist’ skills

Firstly, the Artist is responsible for high-quality work execution. What’s more, a good Permanent Makeup Artist who has spent a lot of effort and finances on education, constantly upgrades skills, uses only quality equipment, pigments and consumables will never cost cheap. To find out, how to choose the right Permanent Makeup Artist, follow this link: 

Health and Safety

Moreover, the Artist has to make sure that all of the Sanitary and Hygienic Standard Requirements are adhered during all stages of the Permanent Makeup procedure. Only sterile disposable needles are used and opened in the presence of the client. All the precautions are followed throughout the procedure to prevent cross-contamination for Client’ as well as Artist’ safety. 
Remember that even a fork is dangerous in inept hands! So, choose your Permanent Makeup Artist wisely.


Secondly, the Client, in turn, is responsible for aftercare which plays an enormous role because:

  • Skin – is the outermost layer of the body that acts as a protective shell 
  • Pigment – is a foreign body

Accordingly, the skin will try by all means to push as much as possible of a foreign body out after the procedure.

Usually, it takes from 4 to 6 weeks to completely heal. Scabs start to form on the second day along the entire treated surface. It is dry to the touch and usually peels off for several days, for some people it may take longer. The healing process does not stop when the scabs are gone. Therefore, you must strictly follow the aftercare instructions given by your Permanent Makeup Artist.

The result, as well as its duration, depends on many factors. The main of which is the ability of the body to regenerate cells. External factors such as ultraviolet radiation, the use of saunas, swimming pools, the medication should also be taken into account. Undoubtedly, they also affect the safety and longevity of the result.

Equipment and Consumables

In addition, responsibility for the result may equally be divided between individual body features and the equipment and consumables used during the procedure. It is very important to use a high-quality device to ensure that there is no lateral beating of the needle, the puncture is smooth and the pigment implantation is even.  

In my work, I use Amiea Linelle Supreme device which is one of the most advanced Digital Cosmetic Tattoo Machine available on the market. It is crafted in Germany by the World’ leading manufacturer.

What are the advantages of Amiea Linelle Supreme device?

  • Digital display 
  • Hygienic, easy-care surface 
  • Ergonomic design (extremely comfortable even for longer treatments) 
  • Cartridges are easy to screw in 
  • Adjustable insertion depth 
  • Adjustable frequency 
  • Low noise and vibration 
  • Low epidermal trauma 
  • Eco-friendly range

Special attention should be paid to Amiea high-end cartridges. Wide range of needle configurations allows finding a perfect single-use cartridge for all types of Permanent Makeup procedures. ‘’Single-use’’ cartridge means that they are sterile which is one of the important factors in order to avoid cross-contamination. A special safety membrane prevents the backflow of colours and bodily fluids. Therefore, providing the highest safety and hygiene levels that we can trust!

Moreover, it is important to use good-quality pigments that respond to all UK and EU Standards. Also, the pigment range used by the Artist has to be specially developed for Permanent Makeup procedures. It should be noted, the colours are optimized for fine work as well as soft powder effects. Additionally, significantly differ from tattoo ink.

It is worth to mention, that sometimes it is impossible to perform a procedure due to contraindications. For instance, AIDS, diabetes (insulin-dependent), haemophilia, skin diseases (psoriasis, eczema), prolonged intake of drugs (antibiotics, anticoagulants), keloid scars, acute inflammatory diseases, mental disorders, epilepsy, oncological diseases etc.

If you are in doubt that you are suitable for a Permanent Makeup Procedure, contact your Right Artist. Usually, everything is explained during an individual consultation process. A doctor’s note may be required if there is any health-related problem.
