Cosmetic Tattooing

Cosmetic Tattooing at The Beauty Base

Hi my name is Sarah and I am a permanent cosmetic makeup artist based in Australia.

Having completed my training with Karen Betts of Nouveau Contour- The UK’s leading training academy. I then became a member of her elite training staff having the opportunity to work with a wide range of clients including Jade Goody of Jades salon and Big Brother UK series.

The method of Cosmetic tattooing I use allows me to create beautiful natural looking Eye Brows. Defined, Enhanced or Bold Eyeliners and recreate lip lines to make lips appear fuller and defined with soft hues of colour.


What is Permanent Cosmetics?

Permanent cosmetic makeup is a state of the art form of cosmetic tattooing. The specialised techniques used for permanent cosmetics are often referred to as “micropigmentation”, “micropigment implantation” or “dermagraphics”. The cosmetic implantation technique deposits tiny individual implants of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin.


How is it done?

My skills will bring out the symmetry and balance that will greatly enhance your beauty. First I use traditional makeup to show how I will achieve your desired look. I will advise you on the most appropriate colours to compliment your skin and hair tone. Pigments are custom blended to match clients natural skin tones and individual preferences.

Then, using cosmetic pencils, I will create a design to allow you to visualise the end results. When you are happy with the results only then will I apply permanent cosmetics.

The pigment is inserted into the skin using single use sterile needles. The procedure last between 30-120 minutes depending on the treatment. This includes consultation and numbing time.


Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt?

A topical anesthetic is applied prior and during the treatment. This numbs the area on which to be worked on . Very rarley does a client complain about any discomfort or pain.

How long does it last?

I always suggest to my Brow and Lip clients to get a colour boost within 18 months of thier initial procedure. A colour boost refreshes the colour back to its original colour and is done at half the cost. Clients who get dark eye liners will find that they can last for up to 3 years. Keep in mind that all skin is different and the environmental conditions we are exposed to varys from person to person.
