Always running late for work with no time to put your make-up on? Are you driving and putting makeup on during rush hour traffic while heading to the office? Worse, did you make it all the way to work, rush into the bathroom only to realize you forgot your lipstick or mascara? Ladies, there is something so awesome available now that you are not going to believe how easy it really is to make it to work or to your next dinner date on time. Permanent makeup! Otherwise known as cosmetic tattooing, this can be a wonderful fix to an old problem. Imagine being able to get up an hour later for work and still make it on time for a change without rushing around. Sounds too good to be true I know.

Now not only can you get your eyes, lips and eyebrows defined but you can even get your eyelids and cheeks permanently coloured. This is truly an innovative procedure and a miracle for any woman who has too much to do in the mornings before work. No more having to worry about running out of your favourite colours or finding just the right shade of foundation. All of this and no more sweating off your makeup an hour after you put it on. This procedure is also a wonderful help for those who are unable to wear conventional makeup due to allergies caused by the ingredients in the makeup.

This procedure is thought to have begun as far back as the Ice Age when natural elements were used to colour the skin. It is believed by many that Cleopatra had permanent makeup applied. There have even been Egyptian mummies recovered with face and body tattoos intact. Ancient Asians were also attributed with the use of permanent makeup. As you see this is really nothing new but has recently become more widely accepted worldwide.

The permanent makeup technique involves placing metabolically inert pigment granules beneath the epidermis to add colour. This procedure can also be performed for corrective uses when people have scarring or uneven pigmentation. It will help even out their colouring and give their skin a more even appearance.

Depending on your natural colouring you may have to go with a darker colour as the colour will soften up in a few days as you heal. Just like any other tattoo which will fade over time you will need to get the colour touched up every five to seven years so that you can keep your colour fresh or even make it a little darker.

As women who are always busy know, this is a wonderful way to save time and money. Although, the procedure may seem expensive, in the long run it can save you thousands of dollars which would have been spent on traditional cosmetics over a five to seven year period of time. Knowing that, how can anyone afford not to have this procedure done?
