NATWEST EVERYWOMAN AWARDS 2021 FINALISTS ANNOUNCED
Can you make money as a permanent make up artist and/or microblading artist?
Not a day goes by without a potential student asking us if they can still make it as a permanent make up artist and grow their career within this field. Or is it too late and that plane is long gone? In this blog I would like to discuss challenges PMU artists face when considering their new career direction.
If you think that permanent make up and microblading industry is competitive, then you are right, but then again, which industry isn’t competitive? We live in a day and age where education is accessible and often affordable, which means many professional industries are quite saturated.
So is it possible to still establish yourself and your business as a go to place for permanent make up services? The answer is very simple, if you love what you do and you truly enjoy making a difference for your clients, then most definitely yes. However, there is a catch…

Latest pigment and ink requirements and how you are already affected.
Permanent make up & tattoo industry pigments are under scrutiny and there’s a huge revamp happening in order to get all of the current pigments compliant. No matter who is your pigment manufacturer, brand you trust, country of origin, pigment colours and tones you use - everyone is affected as a list of 4000 hazardous substances are banned or restricted. Don’t be quick to think this is something you do not need to worry about, don’t be complacent. Ignoring these could mean your insurance is voided in case of a claim, your salon may be fined and most importantly, you’re not making the most ethical & safe decision for your clients.
KNOW YOUR PIGMENT INGREDIENTS - WHAT IS GOING INSIDE OUR SKIN
Educating yourself as a semi permanent makeup artist or a client is really important. Microblading and shading pigments into the skin is a trend and big business that is here to stay… of course we all want to get the right colour, but WHAT is actually in the colours being put in the skin for longterm results, and how do I know what is right for me and safe for my clients?
There are a number of regulating bodies around the world. The FDA does not regulate any inks or pigments. There are administrations that do - but its always good to know for YOURSELF what is in your microblading or semi permanent makeup line.
Everlasting Brows are committed to education and information in this area. We will explore the ingredients that we use, and advise on some other ingredients that you should be on the look out for.
One of the most rewarding things in the beauty industry, is making a difference, and although it is satisfying to perform a beautiful service on clients and create an immediate improvement, it is even more fulfilling when that change is absolutely imperative to someone's confidence and wellbeing.
Such is a story of our case study with Gerogina, a client that sought our permanent make up expertise and help correcting previous eyebrow work done by another artist. Anyone in the PMU industry will know, that correction work presents various challenges such as; difficulties covering undesirable pigment shades or asymmetrical shapes that may be impossible to rectify completely. Many artists often refuse to take on such clients, due to the high pressure that dealing with complicated cases creates. Such challenging clients can often put a strain on the artists skills, tools and knowledge, not to mention their reputation if such cases are not dealt with properly. Rightly so, majority of correction work is not for light hearted and especially when accompanied by alopecia universalis.
We have prepared an interview with Georgina so that our readers can join in on her journey.

New Year, New You?
It’s the new year! And whether you like it or not the new year has snuck upon us at full speed, and you know what that means… the entire population is setting unrealistic goals, and only a small select few (I’d take a wild guess of only maybe 1%? is that too excessive?) actually continue to work on these goals after the 2nd week of January...
Yes. I know. We’ve all been there, but why? Why is it more common to give up on our goals rather than staying motivated?
