Permanent Cosmetics

For those of you that are trained in Permanent Cosmetics and those who are interested!

I'm a licensed Permanent Cosmetic Technician and am trained in the Softap method. I've been licensed for a year now and love it. It helped that i was already an Esthetician when i was trained.

Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos (permanent pigmentation of the dermis) as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eyelining and other permanent enhancing colors to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids in the most natural way.

Li Pigments are very good and give you a natural look in the end result

Good question? What pigment brands are technicians having the best results with?

What pigments does anyone find the best and most consistent?

I originally trained with the Nouveau Contour Academy on the digital NC Intelligent machine. Loved it! But I have since learned the hand tool method and the rotary pen. How is Soft Tap different than other hand tools?

Thanks Stacey.  Great information!

Hey Wonda,

 Yes that price sounds about right. Since it's all pretty new still the training is only 4-5 days but make sure you get an internship/mentorship after your training. I know it's required in Washington State at least.

Softap is an awesome method I hope you enjoy it! I trained under someone for about 6 months after my initial class.

Hi Stacey.  I have been quoted a price of $3500 for 4 or 5 days training in the Softap method.  Is this similar to your experience?  Did you train under someone, or did you do independent study?  Any help or ideas would be very much appreciated.  Thanks!

@ Kyong

Hey! I'm sorry It's taken me a while to get back to you! The Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals has a list of certified trainers and you can find the best one nearest/in your area. Hope it helps!

Hi Stacey!

I just stumbled across your group and am interested in Softap. I haven't found any training opportunities in AK, but am very much interested in gathering more information from you.

Thanks in advance!
