There’s such demand for the procedure, in fact, Bledsoe says her cosmetic school has started offering a permanent makeup application training course. And she, herself, has both taken the course and had permanent eyeliner put on (she’s also had Botox, a top procedure for the region, according to the ASPS). “I figured if I was going to do it on other people, I’d better have some done myself,” she says. “But I also wear eyeliner every day and thought it would be easier to have one less piece of makeup to put on.”

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Bledsoe also admits moving to Arizona has influenced her perceptions regarding cosmetic procedures. “I think there’s peer pressure,” she says. “People make it seem like no big deal here and everybody does it. And if you’re not doing it, you think, ‘What’s wrong with me?’

“I have a friend who’s 25 and she was always against getting her boobs done. But a couple of months ago, she went and got them done. I guess being the only girl who didn’t have big boobs at the pool was intimidating. Now I’m considering getting my boobs done, too.”
