3 Reasons More Women Than Ever Are Choosing Permanent Makeup

Makeup plays an important role in many women’s lives, helping them feel more attractive, younger and even more empowered. But as much as women may like the way makeup makes them look and feel, few women really enjoy the daily drudge of applying makeup, not to mention the multiple touch-ups throughout the day or the hassle of removing all that makeup before bedtime.

At Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa, we offer permanent makeup using innovative techniques to help every woman look naturally beautiful without the hassles. If you’ve been thinking about permanent makeup, but you’re just not sure if it’s worth it, consider these three big benefits that have women turning to permanent makeup options in droves.

It’s less costly

Sure, the initial out-of-pocket cost to have permanent eyeliner or lip color applied might be higher than throwing down some cash for a tube of lipstick or a new eyeliner pencil. But consider this: A recent Money magazine survey published here found the average American woman spends a whopping $15,000 on makeup during her lifetime, including about $43 every time she steps into a makeup store. That includes an average of more than $6,500 on eye makeup alone and almost $2,000 on lipsticks. A separate survey by Skin Store found women spend an average of $8 on their makeup and facial care routine each and every day. That’s a lot of cash. And when you add it all up, permanent makeup seems almost like a steal in comparison. Once your initial application is complete, it just takes an occasional touch-up to keep it all looking good.

It’s more convenient

Makeup routines don’t just cost money; they cost time too. Depending on your routine, you might spend a half-hour or more in front of the mirror every morning perfecting your look, so you feel confident for the rest of the day. Only most makeup doesn’t last that long. And that means in addition to that morning routine, you’re going to have to spend time throughout the day touching up your eyes and lips so they stay looking fresh and attractive. In fact, one survey found women spend an average of 55 minutes every day on their makeup, for a total of 335 hours every year — about as much as a two-week vacation. With permanent makeup, your morning routine can be a lot faster, and touch-ups throughout the day are typically limited to a little blotting or a quick swish of powder. Your eyes, brows and lips look great all day and into the evening too. Plus, microblading and permanent eyeliner can be a great option for women with hair loss, or if vision issues make it difficult to see your makeup while you’re applying it.

It won’t wipe off

It’s the middle of a workday. You’re feeling pretty fatigued. You reach up to your face and gently rub those tired eyes, only to realize — too late — you’ve just smudged your eyeliner — the same eyeliner that took you a good 10 minutes to apply. Now, you’ve got to wash off those smudges and reapply it — and of course, that means you’re probably going to wash off some foundation too. Suddenly, one common little motion means a half-hour spent in the ladies’ room, redoing just about your entire makeup routine. With permanent eyeliner, you don’t have to worry about smudges and smears. Sweating? Swimming? Hanging out in the sauna? No problem — your makeup will stay put. Plus, you won’t have to lug around a lot of products to do constant touch-ups during the day. And, just like in the movies, when you wake up, your makeup will still look fresh and beautiful.
