Permanent cosmetic make-up is a process where color is permanently inserted into the dermal layer of the skin using fine needles dipped into hypoallergenic pigment (inorganic pigment). The pigments are derived from vegetable products and are either pre-mixed or mixed manually, to create a broad palette of color from which to choose from. The pigment bonds to the skin cells and is visible through the translucent outer layer. It lasts 4-7 years. Some of the most common permanent make-up procedures include, eyeliner, eyebrow shading, lip liner and full lip coloring.
