Semi Permanent Make Up has become one of the fastest growing beauty industries over recent years. There are so many amazing artists out there who are constantly striving for excellence and evolving new techniques, to bring you the most up-to-date looks. Unfortunately there are also many poor and under qualified artists out there, so its crucial to do your research when choosing a SPMU artist!! As a professional tattoo artist and qualified SPMU artist myself, I have seen my fair share of bad semi permanent make up and how heart breaking it can be for the client wearing it, so here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your artist:
- Always look at their portfolio of work.
If your semi permanent make up artist doesn’t have a wide range of portfolio pictures to show you, steer clear.
- Healed photos are a must
The truth is in the healing! Look for an artist who can provide you with good, clear images of their healed treatments. This will give you an indication of how your own semi permanent make up will look, so a healed result is important to view in order to see quality of work.
- Don’t scrimp on price!!
As the old saying goes, ‘you get what you pay for!’
Don’t be lured in by groupon offers or cheaper alternatives, a good SPMU artist with a reputable reputation will be worth every penny. A procedure on your face is not a place to bargain hunt!
- Recommendations and reviews
Nowadays Google, Instagram and all our other social networks can provide us with endless information and businesses, and as much as this is an extremely useful tool, good old fashion word of mouth recommendations are always best. Always look through artists reviews, and ask around to hear other peoples experiences with artists in your area.
- Have a consultation
I always like to have a consultation before making an appointment with my clients, and I would always recommend doing so. This allows you to meet your SPMU technician and ask any questions you may have about the procedure, what to expect, and also see there work space before committing to an appointment.
