Perfect Makeup 24/7
Wake up gorgeous everyday.
Applying and perfecting makeup to your brows, lids, and lips, day in and day out is a time-consuming, stressful, and costly routine that’s also inconsistent. Drawing in your brows alone can take forever and finding the right products can be a pain, never mind worrying about whether your eyebrow’s still on or if you’ve licked your lipstick clean off.
Permanent makeup allows you to wake up looking refreshed and “put-together” with zero effort. Save valuable time every morning with subtle, natural-looking makeup that won’t smudge.
Conditions It Treats
Brows, Eyes & Lashes
Get natural looking brows, eyes, and lips.
Permanent makeup is the implantation of colour pigments into the skin to create a natural, cosmetic look. Instead of filling in your brows and applying eye and lip liner each morning, wake-up looking picture perfect.
Using Canadian made pigments designed for permanent facial makeup applications, our line of colour pigments (not ink) are expertly mixed to match your tone and natural colouring.
At External Affairs, we specialize in eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip liner and fill, but our permanent makeup is intended to give you a natural, not a dramatic, look.
For eyebrows, we use a rotary pen device that rotates a disposable cartridge of four or five needles in a row. We use pigments with a coarse grind that prevents fuzzy edges and stays put. Deposited into the skin’s dermis at about the depth of a dime, the pigment is deposited into live tissue and is considered permanent.
Experience the perfection of permanent makeup.
We pride ourselves in creating a natural look that flatters and compliments your face. We take the time to ensure you leave feeling beautiful and confident and satisfied with our services.

Why Choose Us?
External Affairs has a long legacy of permanent makeup excellence. Our artists have been featured on the Emmy Award winning show “Taking it Off,” as well as the CBC National News and other local TV News shows, radio talk shows, and news articles.
All our technicians have external certification and undergo a one-year, in-house apprenticeship. In both our Edmonton and St. Albert locations, our technicians are taught PHI standards. PHI standards are the natural measurements of your face; instead of creating a trendy look, our permanent makeup artists will create the brow, lip, or eyeliner best suited for your face.
What to Expect
As with every treatment at External Affairs, permanent makeup begins with a consultation to discuss your skin, your desired look, and determine the treatment plan. On the day of your treatment, we’ll go over it again before beginning.
A specialize discipline, different from tattooing, permanent makeup is similar in that it uses needs. That said, topical anesthetics are used to numb the area and minimize discomfort during the treatment.
