To put it simply, permanent makeup (PMU), also known as micropigmentation or cosmetic tattooing, essentially gets rid of the everyday hassle that is applying makeup.
PMU never runs or smear, and is ideal for people with allergies to traditional cosmetics as well as for those who have a difficult time applying makeup in general! Women (& men) usually get these kinds of procedures to save time. The results are meant to be subtle. Think of permanent makeup like a delicate tattoo!
