Anita Smith Founder Permanent Effects

Anita Smith, Founder

Anita Smith has been a licensed cosmetologist since 1983. After training in several techniques in the art of permanent makeup, Anita created her own gentle hand-method application that results in a painless and perfect look for her clients. She has more than 30 years experience practicing permanent makeup and has worked with plastic surgeons in the Valley for more than 17 years. Her technique is so renowned that hundreds of technicians have come to learn from her, including her daughter Britney. Anita has made it her mission to bring well-researched top-of-the-line needles, pigments and topical ointments to her clientele. At Permanent Effects, Anita is able to share her skills and truly enrich the permanent cosmetics industry.

The gentle hand method of permanent makeup combines a highly controlled technique with sterile single-use needles that ensure maximum color hold and comfort. The long-lasting results are natural looking and come without the pain associated with other permanent makeup methods.
