Globally Preferred Academy trains cadres of young cosmeticians to enhance brows, eyes, and lips with permanent pigmentation. Their licensed technicians first consult with clients hoping for claret-red lips and dramatic winks, then deftly embellish faces during appointments that last 1.5–2 hours. Globally Preferred Academy’s staff also combats wrinkles and blemishes with dermal rolling and skin needling, both treatments that aim to promote collagen production, and their synthetic extensions elongate lashes in a variety of colors.
At Advanced Permanent Cosmetics, LLC, licensed aesthetician and cosmetic technician Tatyana Seamans consults with her clients before any cosmetic procedure. During the meeting, she explains the various techniques by which she can accentuate facial features—from subtle shading around the eyebrows to bold lip liner—helping clients home in on the exact procedure for their specific needs and style. Once confident in her mission, Tatyana then meticulously dots the skin’s dermal layer with small deposits of pigment, where it highlights eyelids blinking in Morse code for up to five years of spy camp.
When Shelly visited her grandmother in Texas, she overhead her gossiping with other ladies about their tattoos. But it wasn’t a heart-on-the-ankle or flower-on-the-shoulder type of tattoo—rather the ladies had their eyebrows and eyeliner permanently tattooed on their faces. The ladies then took Shelly to get her eyeliner tattooed, and Shelly felt an instant passion for the art. Founding her business in 2002, Shelly holds certificates in permanent cosmetics, designer eyeliner, hairstroke eyebrows, and vibrant lips.

Permanent make-up is the perfect mix of both.

It's the best job in the world being able to make someone feel good about their appearance.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
An older client that was having a hard time drawing eyebrows on straight.
She just wanted to look pretty!
