When improperly applied, makeup can have a harsh and unsettling effect on its onlookers, much like Richard Nixon's portrayal of Hamlet. Go easy on the eyes with today's Groupon: for $150, you get a permanent makeup application for the eyebrows or upper and lower eyeliner at Permanently Pretty LLC, located in Merritt Island (a $300 value).
Skilled aesthetician Gayle Short draws on years of experience as a professional makeup artist and cosmetics salesperson to apply permanent pigment to patrons' façades at Permanently Pretty. During a two-hour session, Short utilizes a tattoo-like process to embolden eyebrows or trace around upper and lower eyelids. The epidermal embellishments aim to enhance natural facial features and, much like poems engraved into rubber, are designed to withstand water and smudges. A one-hour follow-up appointment ensures that new color sets properly. Vibrant magenta walls greet guests at Permanently Pretty's lobby area, where a cushy, floral-print sofa cradles awaiting visitors.
