What You Need To Know About The Permanent Concealer Trend

Makeup routines are unique to each individual. Some people prefer a full face of makeup, while others opt for minimal coverage. However, applying makeup can take up a lot of time, which is why the beauty industry has developed various multi-purpose products and hacks. Stains can be used as eyeshadow, blush, and lip color, while multi-stick crayons can be applied to any part of the face, as mentioned by The Zoe Report.

The beauty community is always looking for ways to make their daily routine more effortless and time-efficient. One of the trends that have emerged recently is the use of permanent or semi-permanent makeup solutions. For instance, lash extensions have become popular because they eliminate the need to apply mascara every day. Additionally, lip tattoos have become a viable option for those who want to keep their lips tinted at all times without the hassle of reapplying lipstick. However, one trend that is still up for debate is the use of permanent concealer. Many people are unsure if it is worth trying.

Face tattoos for beauty?

Dark circles are a common beauty problem that troubles many people. They are the dark shadows that appear under the eyes, which sometimes even concealer cannot fix. Dark circles are the reason why even those who prefer minimal makeup can’t skip using concealer. But what if you didn’t have to worry about concealing your under eyes every day? While microblading has become a common practice for enhancing beauty, the idea of getting your delicate under eyes tattooed can be daunting.

Professional tattoo artist Rodolpho Torres pioneered permanent concealer, or, as he calls it, “eye camouflage” (via Refinery29). The method involves using tattoos to brighten under eyes and add concealer pigment permanently to keep the darkness at bay. Torres explains, “It’s not micro-pigmentation, it’s a tattoo. You can live a normal life and expose it to sunlight knowing that your skin will not become stained,” per Spa + Clinic Australia. But what do doctors have to say about it?

Dr. Lance Brown has explained to Shape that permanent concealer could be harmful. He warns that applying permanent concealer under the eye can cause an infection around the eyelid, or a sty or cyst could grow around the hair follicles. He strongly advises against anyone who is not a medical professional from touching that area of your eyes, particularly with a sharp instrument. With all the risks it comes with, it’s potentially worth sticking to those extra five minutes it takes to apply concealer every morning. However, if you still want to get permanent concealer, you should know that the average procedure costs around $400 (via PMUHub).
