What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is a type of cosmetic tattooing – where ink is deposited into the skin and provides a long-lasting visual effect of expertly applied makeup. The ink can be laid down via tiny needles, as in the case of Ombre treatments, or even micro-blades providing a lash-like appearance.

While the treatments are referred to as “permanent cosmetic treatments,” the micropigmentation is very shallow and unlike a traditional tattoo will typically fade within 3 years.

Permanent makeup is great for achieving looks that are hard to duplicate otherwise, such as powder brows, and streamline morning routines by eliminating time consuming eyeliner and lip blushing.

The Benefits of Permanent Makeup

Enjoy more time to do things you love and look great no matter the weather – permanent makeup offers serious benefits over traditional makeup!

  • Time-Saving: Reduces the time spent on daily makeup application, allowing for a quicker morning routine.
  • Long-Lasting Results: Enjoy a consistent, polished look that lasts for up to 3 years, eliminating the need for frequent touch-ups.
  • Smudge-Proof and Waterproof: Ensures that your makeup stays intact throughout the day, even after a long day at the lake!
  • Confidence Boost: It’s hard not to feel confident when you wake up every day looking amazing!
  • Customization: Your permanent makeup is tailored to meet your beauty goals. From subtle enhancements to more dramatic looks – the choice is yours.
  • Ideal for Sensitive Skin: Don’t let a makeup allergy keep you from looking your best. Permanent makeup uses skin-safe pigments and never requires makeup remover.
  • Daily Radiance: Rest easy knowing that you’ll have a perfect look every day without the variability of traditional makeup application.
  • Accessible Beauty: These treatments are great for people with conditions that make the daily application of makeup challenging.

Before & After

Our Permanent Makeup Services

All Vivid permanent makeup treatments start with a consultation to ensure you get results that you will love! During your consultation you will meet with an esthetician and discuss your personal beauty goals.

You’ll get all of your questions answered, learn about our procedures, and figure out which treatments are right for you. Your consultation fee is applicable towards any service or treatment that you schedule!

Eyebrow Permanent Makeup Treatments

Eyebrow Microblading

Enhance your natural beauty with eyebrow microblading. This technique creates precise, hair-like strokes that blend seamlessly with your existing brows. Perfect for enhancing sparse or thin eyebrows, microblading offers a natural-looking enhancement that lasts 1 to 3 years.
Note: This treatment is not recommended for oily skin types..

Nano Brows

This precision hand technique creates ultra-fine, realistic hair strokes that provide a more defined and detailed appearance.

Ideal for all skin types, including oily skin, nano brows provide a long-lasting, natural look that lasts 18-24 months.

Nano Combo Brows

Get the best of both worlds with Nano Combo Brows. Combining the precision of nano hair strokes with the added depth of shading, this technique delivers fuller, yet still natural-looking brows. Perfect for those wanting extra fullness and dimension, nano combo brows are long-lasting, typically 18-24 months, and provide a beautifully blended finish.

Ombre Brows

Achieve a flawless, makeup-like finish with our Ombre Brows service. This microshading technique creates a soft, gradient effect where the front of your brows is lighter, gradually darkening towards the tails.
Ideal for those who prefer a defined, polished look, ombre brows are especially suited for oily skin types and lasts up to 2 years.

Lash Line Permanent Makeup Treatments

Lash Line Enhancement

This permanent makeup procedure inserts pigment between your lashes, directly in the lash line of your top lid. This provides a visual effect of fuller lashes, yet is very subtle and does not contain an obvious line. After your initial touch up, your results last from 1-3 years depending on your skin type and desired saturation.

Permanent Eyeliner

Wake up with perfectly defined eyes every day! By delicately applying pigment along your lash line we achieve a long-lasting eyeliner effect that enhances the natural beauty of your eyes. From subtle accents to bold lines with included wings, the choice is yours! After your initial touch up, your results will last from 1-3 years.

Lip Blushing Treatment

Add color and definition to your lips with lip blushing permanent makeup. Color is built up between four passes, fully saturating your lips. The initial color is very vibrant, and will fade approximately 20-30% during the healing process. Your initial touch up adds more saturation and allows your treatment to last 1 to 2 years, depending on your skin type and preferred saturation level.

Color Boost Annual Touch Up

Keep your permanent makeup looking its best with an annual touch up treatment. Available for Lash and Lip treatments.
