As kids, we are all anti-line. In fact, you took pride in your art that didn’t respect any silly conventions like lines! As we grow older, unfortunately, we learn that we need to abide by certain rules (and all the other boring things like taxes and grocery shopping), but eventually, it comes time for a break. We need a breath of fresh air. A chance to draw outside the lines once again.
For us here at Perma Blend, that looks like taking our pigments to the STREETS! We’re showcasing that our inks don’t just exist inside a studio – they exist in the real world! From fresh fruit to upholstery, there are exact pigment matches to all of our inks staring us right in the face… and we’re on the hunt!
Our Secret Agent on the Streets
One of the artists who has been doing a fantastic job of finding and matching our inks in the wild is Nikki Rice, aka @motherofblades on Instagram. Nikki is a Pro Team artist who specializes in nano brows and PMU, but she clearly has an eye for color matching.
Next up she goes on the hunt for something a little tougher; a match for Illume, one of our fav golden shades. Her answer? SHE MATCHES IT WITH ACTUAL SHADES. We love the consistency.
Tina’s Gold Sunrise looks a little different in the bottle since it’s a slightly darker shade than Illume. To match it up, she finds something super earthy and muted, ultimately settling on some dried flowers.
For maybe the most luxurious find of the bunch, she decides that she is going to look for a match for the Espresso pigment. Instead of taking the easy way out (and using ACTUAL espresso), she decides that it’s time to pull out the Louis bag! Nothing wrong with a little flex 😉. Then, rapid-fire, she shows the Blackish Brown shade with another bag, then a final stop on Fiery Fuchsia, perfectly pairing it with a spicy book that has its own “heat”.
It’s hard to spot lookalikes in the wild, and Nikki did a FANTASTIC job!
Ink + Stories = Community
Perma Blend is not just a brand of inks, it's a community of artists. We’re constantly on a mission to connect and learn from you – We want to see what your average day as a PMU artist looks like! It’s not all rainbows, either, we want to hear your stories, your tips, your challenges, and your successes.
How? We want you to contribute to the culture with your very own day-in-the-life and client lifecycle videos. Here's what they are:
Day-in-the-life videos are short clips that show us what a typical day is like for you as a permanent makeup artist. How do you start your day? What are your routines? How do you prepare for your clients? How do you balance your work and your personal life? We want to see it all!
Client lifecycle videos are longer videos that show us the entire process of working with a client, from consultation to aftercare. How do you communicate with your clients? How do you design their brows, lips, or eyeliner? How do you apply our inks? How do you ensure their satisfaction and safety? We want to know it all.
These videos are not only a great way to showcase your skills and talents, but also a great way to learn from each other. We can all benefit from seeing how other artists work, what techniques they use, what challenges they face, and what solutions they find. Ready to collab?
We are so excited to see your videos and learn more about you. Perma Blend is more than just ink, it's a way of life!
