Permanent make-up (PMU) represents a group of techniques in permanent makeup which have been developed by Sviatoslav Otchenash and which are taught at the AcademyS. These techniques cover micropigmentation of the eyebrows, lips and eyelids and their aim is enhancing the client’s natural look that could have deteriorated due to age, certain diseases, presence of scars, and similar.
Permanent make-up treatment can also be used to emphasise the client’s best features or, simply, to save their time which they spend every day on a mundane task of applying makeup. No matter if the eyes, lips, or brows are being done, our goal is to teach our students that for the best result not only the client’s wish is important – what also matters is the artist’s professional opinion on what will fit the client best.
By using sterile and disposable equipment, the best quality pigments are injected under the top layer of the skin. Immediate result of the treatment is usually not so representative: in the beginning color will appear darker because of the pigment which was placed in the epidermal layer. As the skin regenerates, this upper layer of epidermis will shed and it will be replaced with new cells. As a consequence, the pigmented area will appear brighter than it was at first place.
PMU techniques can be divided into 4 categories:
Magic Shading Technique – Shading technique for eyebrows
Magic Combined Technique – Hair strokes combined with shading technique
Stardust Technique – Shading technique with two (and more) colors
Soft Liner Technique – Eyeliner with no hard “edges”
Classic Eyeliner Technique – Full black eyeliner with hard “edges”
Superbright Shading Technique – Lipstick effect
Aquarelle Technique – Natural effect
Cover-up Technique – Covering up old/unsuccessful PMU procedure for lips, eyebrows and eyeliner
