How much money does a permanent makeup artist make?

You’re probably wondering ‘How can I make this much money as a Permanent Makeup Artist?’

Well, let me tell you how.

The average range a permanent makeup specialist charges for one standard  PMU procedure is $300-$600.

If you charge within this range, you can offer 3 treatments in a day and make about $1,400 in a day.

On average, that’s about $6,000 you could make by working just 4 days a month as a permanent makeup artist. Many PMU beauty professionals do 6-10 permanent makeup treatments per week.

The treatments they offer can vary from; Microblading treatments, to Ombre Powder Brow treatments, Nano Brow treatments, PMU Lip Blushing treatments, Areola Restoration, and PMU Eyeliner treatments. By booking 6-10 permanent makeup procedures you could make $16,000 a month or upwards of $190,000 in a year.

This range of permanent makeup bookings is totally obtainable for you. Think about it, permanent makeup salons or beauty salons with 3-4 women and a great culture make almost $500,000 or half a million dollars a year.

If you’re doing this solo and bringing in clients weekly for multiple PMU treatments, you could make at least $190,000 a year. Bottom line: you just need to land and book clients on a weekly basis. It’s okay if you don’t land 6 clients or 10 clients every week. You have some wiggle room.

For more specialized PMU procedures such as Scalp Micropigmentation or Paramedical Tattooing permanent makeup artists can charge anywhere from $2500 to $5000. If you get a few of those in a month it can add up fast.

Plus there will be busy seasons where you’re booked consistently. This level of financial independence can be yours. It’s as simple as signing up for a permanent makeup training course and starting your beauty journey today.
