Last week ,I spent a few hours with Shauna Magrath, a certified micro-pigmentation artist. She and I worked together in the 90's on many films such as X files, Blade Trinity II, and The Glass Cockpit. She has applied makeup to many actors including, Hillary Duff, Meg Ryan, Gillian Anderson, Dominic Purcell, Jensen Ackels and David Duchovny.
Shauna has expanded her talents to the real world, and has set up a makeup service boutique called the Beauty Ink Gallery in the South Granville Lofts in Vancouver, for Micro-Pigmentation or otherwise known as Permanent Tattoo Makeup. This service provides women and men, with the option of having there eyes, brows, lips permanently enhanced. Shauna uses only Organic and Inorganic pigment colors, that last 5 - 10 years. There is no Iron Oxide in her colors, so there is less chance for the color to change with time. The color will fade if it is continually exposed to the sun. Colors that are made with iron oxide will eventually change from black to blue, otherwise known as blue brows.
I let Shauna fill and reshape my thin, short eyebrows with a pigment color (that she custom mixed), to a light, warm brown. My brows look fantastic!
The idea of Permanent Tattoo Makeup, Micro-Pigmentation, is to enhance your facial features, not to make your face look like it has a lot of makeup on.
No Drag Queen Looks! Please!
Corrective makeup can be done as well. Stretch marks can be diminished and white sun spots can be filled in. Women that have gone thru breast surgery, can have a new areola tattooed on. This is definitely the new wave of makeup for the busy mom, the full time career woman, or for those who have aging eyesight.
Many celebrities have Permanent Tattoo Makeup: Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, Drew Barrymore, Victoria Beckham, Jessica Alba, Halle Barry, Beyonce, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Keifer Sutherland, Robert Downey Jr., Bruce Willis.
