There’s a cafe in my town that I go to for lunch every so often. I go in, order my salad (dressing on the side with extra tomatoes) and chat, when the place isn’t too hoppin’, with the gal who usually works at the register.
She loves funky nail polishes, so we always have something to talk about. (SIDE NOTE: beauty gals/guys should have a secret handshake or something, like the jeep wave, so we can identify ourselves in public and commiserate, haha!)
Anywho, one day I noticed that she was wearing teal eyeliner. It looked sharp, and I asked her about it. She said it was permanent. She’d had it done years ago — had her liner permanently tattooed — and she absolutely loves it. It saves her a ton of time. Looked really good, too.
Sometimes I entertain the idea of having my brows permanently filled in… Just think of all the time I could save every morning if I didn’t have to fill in my brows! — but then I remember my control issues and how much I hate needles and chicken out.
The thought of leaving the fate of my brows in someone else’s hands FOREVER makes my left eye twitch…so no permanent makeup for this girl.
Plus, my tastes change. And styles change, too. I wouldn’t want to feel stuck with something I didn’t like anymore.
But…it’s an interesting idea, isn’t it? It’s a great option for some people, too, especially after chemotherapy or an injury to hide a scar or restore pigmentation to damaged skin.
Have you ever considered getting permanent makeup? Think of all the time you could save! Or do you have any permanent makeup now, like your liner/brows/anything else? What’s your take on it?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Touchdown! Aloha from Lihue, Kauai. El Hub and I got in around noon, had fish tacos for lunch at a beachside grill (Duke’s), went for a quick swim, took a nap, and now we’re gonna hit the Wal-Mart to pick up some snorkel fins, a tiny tube of toothpaste, shaving stuff for him, maybe a bag of cookies… You know, important stuff like that.
Hope you had a good day today. What did you think of Laurie’s skincare routine in today’s My Makeup Life? Pretty extensive, right? She uses a bunch of products I’ve never tried before.
