Naked Cosmetics, based in Los Angeles, has recently developed a procedure called Micro-Art semi-permanent makeup that can make lips appear fuller. An acupuncture needle is used to deposit nontoxic mineral pigments just below the skin’s surface to create a new extended lip line, which is then filled in. Semi-permanent pigments or tattoo inks do not have to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration, although the pigments in this procedure have been sanctioned for use by the European Medicines Agency. The process is different from other permanent makeup tattoos because it uses ultra-fine needles and mineral-based pigments that are healthier for the skin and retain their color longer. It takes about an hour and costs $1,000 for results that last up to three years. Salons offering Micro-Art can be found at

MicroArt Semi Permanent makeup is a proprietary technology perfected by our team of electronic engineers, cosmetic biochemists, and Founder Hollywood makeup artist Tanya York. The goal was to develop a makeup that could last for years on the skin, look more natural than makeup and eliminate all of the side effects of other forms of permanent makeup. After five years of development, MicroArt has now been enjoyed by thousands of people who fly in from around the world to get their procedure.

There are no other forms of permanent cosmetics like it. MicroArt utilizes cutting-edge equipment, custom blended mineral-based pigments and a system designed to ensure results so natural that even men wear it.
