SofTap® Permanent Cosmetics Training

Do you have a gentle touch, steady hands and an eye for artistry? Creative minds like yours can make fabulous SofTap® professionals.

The SofTap® Permanent Cosmetics professional has complete control over where pigment is deposited into the skin with the SofTap hand method. Every move, every touch is at the SofTap® professional’s discretion.

SofTap® Permanent Cosmetics is the most natural way to look your best 24/7. Professionals specializing in the SofTap® hand method use 100% disposable hand tools to gently and delicately implant permanent colour into the skin. This method is non-invasive, highly controlled, and produces the most natural looks you will ever see in permanent makeup.

SofTap® professionals can give their clients anything from a soft, virtually undetectable beauty enhancement to a complete reconstruction of missing eyebrows. Permanent eyeliner is gentle, long lasting, and permanent lips are soft and full. The results are so natural you have to see it to believe it.
