As the Permanent Makeup Artist at Carolina Aesthetics, people ask me—What exactly is permanent makeup? And why do people get it? And why should I come to you?
Permanent Makeup (Micropigmentation or Cosmetic Tattoo) is the implantation of colored pigments into the upper reticular layer of the dermis. The custom blended colors are deposited in a form of traditional tattooing and used to enhance features of the face. It typically lasts anywhere from 1 – 5 years. The colors and shapes are customized to fit each individual’s needs. We offer eyebrow, eyeliner, lip liner and lip color. Permanent makeup saves time in your makeup routine and active/ athletic people enjoy makeup that does not sweat off or have to be re-applied. Individuals with allergies or sensitive skin benefit from permanent makeup as do people with vision problems, arthritis, unsteady hands, or watery eyes (prohibits the use of eye cosmetics). It is especially useful for individuals that have a loss of hair or hair that is too light to be seen in the eyebrows or lash area.
A free consultation is required prior to your appointment to determine your individual needs and to explain the procedure thoroughly (including pricing).

Here is what a few of my past clients have said…..
“I’ve always struggled with eyeliner….and so I never bothered. Finally, I decided to ask my doctor about permanent makeup and, with her reassurance, booked my appointment for both upper and lower eyelids. April and I discussed my expectations and the final result is so natural looking! It is the best thing I have ever done for myself.”
Jo Ann English
“I can honestly say that my permanent eye makeup was one of the best procedures I have ever had. It was quick, relatively painless and had a short recovery time. I am so pleased with how natural the results look and it is great having one less step in my busy morning routine. I was so impressed that I gave my 71 year old mother the gift of permanent eyeliner for Mother’s Day. She absolutely loves it and has told all of her friends. I definitely recommend permanent eyeliner for all ages.” Dr. Beth Browne
“I first came to Carolina Aesthetics for permanent makeup at the recommendation of a friend who had her eyeliner done there. (I had my eye & lip liner done previously in another city but was not pleased with the result). So I came to Carolina Aesthetics and had my eyeliner done in 2011 and was so pleased that I came back in 2012 to do my lips. I am very pleased with the professional atmosphere as well as the results. I highly recommend them.” Anonymous
