At Face It Permanent Make Up Center, a team of skilled micropigmentation specialists, each certified by the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals, enhances faces with permanent makeup. Led by owner Edine Swain, who finds personal fulfillment in working with clients dealing with birth defects and scars from accidents or surgeries, the professionals take the time to talk with each client and understand his or her vision for elegant eyeliner or lips the color of a newborn fire engine.
While darkening brows or adding a starlet beauty mark, the artistic technicians employ micropigment colors—which, unlike traditional tattoo ink, don’t acquire a bluish tint over time. They calibrate the pigment with the utmost care, blending hues to match a client’s skin and hair or applying multiple shades of color to brows for a natural look. The professionals also specialize in correcting work performed at salons and in scar re-pigmentation, shading in the pale tissue left by surgical procedures or jobs as the Three Stooges’ carpentry teacher.
