I Got My Makeup Permanently Tattooed


– I am so excited to have
24 hour makeup on all day. (techno music) I take about 30 minutes to
about an hour to get ready. And with my daily life, I need more time. I have a startup company with my husband, and our days consist about 12 hours of workdays, seven days a week. Anytime that I could eliminate from fixing my hair or makeup would help. I have been putting makeup
on now for almost 20 years. I started wearing makeup to
feel confident about myself. Ever since I was young I watch
my mom put her makeup on, and I watch her transition
into this beautiful woman. I wanted to feel that as well. When I’m not wearing makeup, I feel like I’m not complete
or I’m not finished. And I just feel more sure of myself. I’m extremely excited to
have permanent makeup on so I can just hit the ground ready in the minute that I wake up. (thumping music) – I am Michelle Wu, the master therapist. We specialize doing semi-permanent
makeup in the salon. So the eyebrow, we’re
doing the Microblade. We use the Microblade to scratch strokes by stroke in the epidermal
layer of the skin. The eyebrow it looks
very natural and lively. For the eyeliner and the lip,
we use the machine to do it. It’s different from tattoo because it’s elastic to
penetrate in the skin but it can last to three to five years. (bouncy music) – First, Michelle
started with my eyebrows. (bouncy music) I didn’t feel a thing,
I felt like sandpaper or something drawing on my face. I was tearing up more when
she was plucking my eyebrows. (bouncy music) When she was poking me in
the eye for the eyeliner, it felt uncomfortable in the sense of that felt like somebody was dragging along the hairline of my eyelashes. The pain was like somebody poking you several times in a row. (thumping music) When Michelle was doing my lips, I did feel my lips starting to swell. Almost immediately after I
got the numbing cream put on. The pain on the lips felt like someone scraping
consistently on your lips. I felt every needle, I felt every stroke, I felt every little thing that she did. I think it’s as painful as ripping of a bandage slowly but I also knew that I was gonna get the
results that I wanted so I didn’t complain,
I soldiered through it. I know by tomorrow, I’m
gonna be a happy girl. (techno music) I just got done. I’m really excited to see
how everything turned out. Huh, yes. Oh my eyebrows look fantastic. And the eyeliner, you
did such a great job. I love it Michelle, thank you. Coming here and anticipating for all of these things to be done, I was nervous, and skeptical and excited
all at the same time. And as I was laying here, I was anticipating on how
things were going to turn out. And when Michelle handed me the mirror, it was everything that
I hoped it would be. If you’re thinking about getting Microblading eyebrows done, do it. If you’re thinking about getting permanent eyeliner done, do it. If you’re thinking about
getting permanent makeup done, I would do it and the
results are worth it. (lighthearted music)
