How To Choose Your Permanent Makeup Artist

Choosing a permanent makeup artist is an important decision. It is essential that you  feel comfortable, safe and that you have confidence in your practitioner. Start by doing a little research, and then phone around to book a few consultations. Most practitioners are happy to provide a free consultation. This is a great opportunity to meet with the professionals and also to check out the environment to be sure you will feel comfortable there. Treat this free consultation as an audition for your practitioner. This is where you can ask questions with no obligations. Use this time with your potential practitioner to a get some facts, and ask all the questions you like. Don’t be afraid to ask questions that may seem silly, it is better to ask than to be unsure about anything.

Ask about:

  • Their qualifications, certifications and experience
  • Before and after pictures; request to see them
  • What industry, association and guidelines they follow
  • The pros and cons of the procedure you are considering
  • Any additional advice they may have to offer
  • How materials are disposed of and other hygiene/health issues

Also be sure to ask if you can see the treatment rooms. Actually seeing the rooms can go a long way to easing any anxiety or fear that you may be feeling. Clean, comfortable and welcoming rooms can really ease your mind.

If you are happy with the above then move on to ask about colour options for your procedure. The range should be quite extensive and your practitioner should offer professional advice and suggestions at this point.

When the consultation is over, evaluate how you feel. Here are some points to consider:

  • Did you feel welcome?
  • Were you well informed?
  • Were you comfortable in the environment?
  • Was the service professional?

Be concerned if you came out feeling any of the following:

  • Rushed
  • Confused
  • Like you were an inconvenience

Go to a few different providers to compare the information you are given and how you feel overall. Don’t fall into the trap of basing on price; just because someone is cheaper it does not automatically make him or her your best option. Choose your permanent makeup  provider based on the facts and the benefits they offer to you.
