We met Miss Chung during her visit to Moscow and had a conversation regarding permanent makeup in an informal environment. — How long have you been doing permanent makeup? — I’ve been doing permanent makeup for approximately 6 years.
— W hat d id you do before you beca me a permanent makeup artist? — I was a professional concert pianist. After my pregnancy I wasn’t able to work, because I needed to travel to perform my music. So I had to stop doing my job, because I was feeling very weak and I had to look after my baby for 1 year, and after that I learned how to do permanent makeup, so this is how I started. — How many permanent makeup ar tists work in your city? How many of them practice microblading? — I actually have no idea how many artists are practicing in Hong Kong. Some salons can have someone with lack of experience and thus lack of qualification yet doing permanent makeup. Many beauty salons or hairdressing salons usually have only one person that does permanent makeup. — PMU now has become really popular, a lot of artists appear every month trying to make easy money, but they are not really good at this, are they? — That’s true, actually. Also, a lot of eyelash or nail technicians have started to add this treatment to beauty salons as well.
