Permanent Makeup Tampa FL





Permanent cosmetic makeup applied by hand can be as soft and natural or as defined as you want.  At Advanced Cosmetic Techniques Permanent Cosmetic Makeup in Tampa we are able to achieve many soft looks that you just can't get with a machine.  The hand method of application is also much less uncomfortable for you and puts less stress on your skin.


The hand tools used are sterile, individually packaged, and disposable so there is no chance of contamination.  We use the highest grade pigments, and an allergy test is performed on each client.  The best topical anesthetics are used to control any discomfort.



Eyebrows done by hand with permanent cosmetic makeup look like naturally perfect eyebrows, not like a tattoo of an eyebrow. The hand tool makes a tiny mark that resembles individual hairs.



First we choose a color together; pigment colors range from platinum blonde to black.  The area is numbed with a topical anesthetic, then the shape is drawn with an eyebrow pencil.  We'll take as long as necessary to get the shape exactly the way you want it.  When you have approved the shape it is filled in with the color you chose, making it look like lots of little hairs.  You know the shape and color before we begin; there are no surprises.


For eyeliner,  a natural look can be achieved by placing pigment between your lashes, making it appear that you have a lot more eyelashes so you wake up every day looking natural, but better.  That way you can always apply actual eyeliner on the occasions when you want to look special.  Or we can thicken the line, making your eyes look as dramatic as you like.  Many different looks can be achieved using the hand method.  And not to worry, your eyes remain closed throughout the entire procedure!  Most women choose black, brown, or charcoal, but there are also many other beautiful colors to choose from.


Lip liner can be applied so that it looks like your lips are lined, or it can be made to blend with your own lip color and provide definition and shape.  Unlike many permanent makeup artists, we also offer full lip color, which provides both definition and soft color throughout the lip.  Permanent lip color doesn't have to look like lipstick; it can look like your lips are just the prettiest color, well defined and beautifully shaped. Then you can wear any color lipstick you want to, but you don't have to! Of course, you can choose a brighter color if you want more of a lipstick look.


First we sit down with you and select a color. There are many beautiful shades to choose from.  After numbing the lips with a topical anesthetic we take a lip liner pencil and draw the shape of your lips. There are a lot of things that can be done with your  lips; you can keep the shape they are, correct any asymmetry, or make them look a little fuller. When the shape is perfect, we follow that outline exactly with the color of your choice.


Whether you choose to just line your lips or fill them in as well, your lips will be beautiful, soft and flawless, every moment of every day!
