By Leading Semi-Permanent Makeup Artist, Laura Kay London
There are many reasons why women seek to have semi permanent make up. Some may look into having it to save time and money, whilst others may find it suits their lifestyle, particularly if they are more active. The most common reason however, is because as we age, we unfortunately lose the definition on our defining facial features due to loss of brightness and collagen.
Semi-permanent makeup can help enhance the brow, lip and eye area. The most common procedure is microblading, which is cosmetic tattooing with a hand tool dipped in customized colour to suit your natural brow shade. It is applied to the eyebrows with hair like strokes. Microblading for eyebrows can give you an instant brow lift making you look ten years younger, defining your features and framing your face therefore opening up your eyes. You could also have a powder eyebrow that gives the appearance of wearing an eyebrow pencil.
Semi-permanent makeup lip treatments
A lip blush treatment gives the appearance of a fuller more defined lip without the need to use lip liner or lipstick. Women may also want to have a lip blush treatment to make their lips appear fuller, or if they don’t like the colour of their natural lip. The colour in our lips as well as the lip line can start to diminish as we age, so this treatment helps bring back definition to the area.
Everyone’s skin holds onto the pigment differently and some people’s bodies can hold on to some of the pigment indefinitely but it fades over time. Top up appointments can usually be between 6 months to 2 years. Each area of Semi-permanent makeup costs up to £400.
