In this post, I will walk you through what it takes to successfully launch and grow your Permanent Makeup career and point you in the direction of the best permanent makeup and microblading course Kent.


1. Find a Great Training Program and Mentor

Many of us have a strong passion for what we do. We love our profession and we’d like to see it grow. To reach your goals, you have to become an expert in your field and find a mentor who can guide you on your path to success. So how do you find the right training program?

In addition to a mentor, there are several other factors you should consider when choosing a training program such as,


  • How is the course structured?
  • Is the training one to one or in small or large groups?
  • How many other students will you be sharing your trainer with?
  • What’s the support like afterwards?
  • Have different learning styles been taken into consideration?
  • How flexible is the course timeline?
  • Can you work at your own pace?

Not all permanent makeup and microblading courses are the same and the training course you choose really can make or break your start in the industry. If you’d like to discuss my training programme, please do get in touch.  

2. Master the basics

When I began, I had wanted to become a permanent makeup artist for a while, and it had been a dream of mine for a long time. I did a lot of research on this subject, and I am now not only a recognised Permanent Makeup artist, but a trainer and metor as well. I love it because I get to create beautiful looks for my clients and I love the confidence it instills in them. 


There is no reason to not become one as well. It is a great profession that anyone can do with time and dedication. Not only do I know how to do it, I know how to teach it and I would like to share what I know with you so that you can become an amazing Permanent Makeup artist too.


I have had the privilege of being a permanent makeup artist for almost 10 years and to be honest, even I am learning new things about the procedure every day. I never thought I would be in the business as long as I have been, but I’m always learning something new and helping others in my field.

As we all know, the best way to become a better artist is to constantly learn new things. This is the reason why we should get to know the basic of any art. It doesn’t matter whether it is painting, drawing, sculpting, etc. The most important thing is to understand the basics. We can’t expect to master anything if we don’t have a firm foundation. 

When you know how to do things correctly, you can always try to go beyond the basics. For example, if you want to be a good sculptor, you have to start off by learning the basics. You should learn the different techniques of sculpting. You should also make sure that you know the different materials you will need to use. In addition to that, you should learn the tools you will need to sculpt. You should also be able to master the technique of making the clay and mold. Once you get to the basics, you can take those skills and develop them further.

The expert at anything was once a beginner.” 

You can be an expert in any field of study with consistent effort and consistent learning.

3. Practise, practise, practise!

If you are a new permanent makeup artist, you need to practice. You need to practice as much as you can possibly manage to practice. Practice is the only way to improve and to become good at your craft. As the old saying goes ‘practice makes perfect’. The more you practice, the more you’ll be able to perfect your skills and to become a better permanent makeup artist.

Achieving the ideal look takes time, practice, and patience. There are no shortcuts to the perfect result. The goal is to get it right, not rush it.

You need to set up a time each day to practice. You need to practice all the time. You should practice every single day to make sure that you are improving. The more you practice, the better you will be. It is also important to have good materials to work with. Make sure that you use the best products and equipment. 

To master the basics, you need to study them. The good news is that it doesn’t take long to learn all these techniques. All it takes is practice and repetition, plus a willingness to put in the time and effort required to master the art. Over the years, I have mastered and perfected a set of basic skills that I use to get the job done on almost any client. If you want to learn how to master the basics, ask about my training courses.

4. Identify Your Dream Client

When I speak to new business owners, the first thing I ask is “Who is your dream client?” This question can be a little tricky to answer because it can be hard to think of the perfect client. The truth is, any business owner can be their own client! The goal is to figure out who will become a great client for you.

You don’t have to worry about finding the perfect client right away. If you can identify who you would like to work with, you are in good shape. In fact, you should take your time to figure out who is a good potential client and who isn’t. 

There are many different kinds of clients. The clients that are the most beneficial are the ones that can afford your services, refer you more business and bring more clients to your door. Your goal should be to get the clients that value the services you offer.

5. Develop a Good Marketing Plan

There are four major areas that will influence the success of your marketing plan. They are:

1. The product/service – This is what you’re selling. Make sure that you understand what you are selling, who it is for and how to sell it. You have to find a way to make your product/service attractive to the customers.

2. The target market – Who’s going to buy it? You have to find a way to make your product/service more attractive to the customers. It’s important to know who is going to be buying your product/service. Is there a certain group of people that you want to sell it to? If not, then you need to think of another one. 

3. Your message – How will you get them to buy it? Keep your message simple.

4. The channels/media you’ll use. Finally, the channels/media you’ll use is how you’re going to get your message to the customer. You can use online marketing such as a website and google ad words, social media and even television, radio, newspapers, billboards. Even old school methods have local reach such as printed flyers and direct mail as well as word of mouth, etc.

6. Build a Network of Clients

Building a network of clients means getting to know each and every one. If you want to be successful, it is important that you build a good relationship with your clients. Spend some time listening to what they say and looking for ways that you can make them feel special and valued. Do a great job and they’ll tell their friends about the great service that they had from you, and that’s how you will get more clients. Your reputation is everything. Building a great reputation is key.

If you want to build a good network of clients, then you must be willing to help others. You should be willing to give people advice, help them with their business, and guide them. When you start out, offering free consultations is a great way to offer something of value and find out if people are interested in your services.

In conclusion, to get started in the permanent makeup business, it takes a lot of effort but the rewards are endless. There are many things to consider and learn before you can be an expert. But, it is definitely doable, if you have a passion for what you are doing, and a willingness to work hard. During my courses, you will learn all the important lessons and details needed to get your business up and running and you’ll have an experienced mentor who really cares about your success behind you.
