The Miracle of Semi-Permanent Make Up
We’ve all been there. Wake up late because your phone battery died. Waking up the kids takes way longer than it should, and you haven’t even been able to get in front of a mirror and put on makeup.
So you face the choice. Make sure you look ok before you leave the house and wind up late? Or dash out without a thought to it, and spend the day wondering what people are thinking?
With Semi-Permanent make up, you don’t need to make that choice.
You can save yourself valuable time in the morning to deal with the kids impromptu disasters, or the regular car key treasure hunt, or even just to sleep in and not have to rush around while half asleep!
So how does Semi-Permanent make up work?
Semi-Permanent make up (also sometimes called micropigmentation) is an innovative new way to enhance a woman’s appearance, by placing small amounts of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. This advanced procedure has been used by many in the entertainment industry, including models, actors, and entertainers as a means of enhancing their appearance. Madonna, Cher, Elizabeth Taylor, Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani, Shirley Bassey and even Prince (hey, it isn’t just for women!) are just a few of the celebrities that have chosen to have semi-permanent cosmetics.
The procedure has more than simple aesthetic value however, as using it can save you time, money, and glaring angrily at the mirror in the morning should you make a sleepy mistake!
Semi-Permanent makeup typically consists of application of eyeliner, eyebrow simulation, and lip colour. Also, there are semi-permanent cosmetic makeup procedures for beauty marks, scar camouflage and areola reconstruction.
Semi-Permanent Eyebrows: Tired of drawing on your eyebrows every day?
Throw away those pencils! You can have a professional Nurse design the perfect eyebrows for you so you can go swimming, wear a hat, and go to the gym without having to worry about your eyebrows rubbing off ever again. This is how it usually works:
Step One: Your eyebrows will be drawn on using cosmetic pencils, just so you can get an idea of the end result.
Step Two: Your nurse will then apply the semi-permanent colour by tattooing each individual hairstroke one by one with the Feathering Technique to build long and short strokes, following the growth pattern of your natural eyebrows.
As a bonus, you needn’t remove your natural eyebrows for this, your new eyebrows can be designed to incorporate them flawlessly.
Permanent Lip Liner and Lip Colour
I don’t know about you, but when my lipstick comes off, my face no longer looks ‘right’, it loses its colour, and my lips look less shapely. That said, I’m lucky enough to work in this industry, so I haven’t had to deal with that for quite some time thanks to this treatment! This is how it usually works:
Step One: Your nurse will pre-draw your desired lip shape, then match it to your favourite lip colour.
Step Two: Your chosen colour will be drawn onto your lips using a specialised tool, designed for placing pigment onto sensitive areas like lips. Trust me, there’s no need to worry about pain!
Eyeliner defines and enhances the beauty of the eyes. It makes the lashes appear thicker, even when you don’t wear mascara.
To most, the thought of never having to worry about smudging eyeliner ever again seems like a fantasy, or something out of science fiction. But as with a lot of futuristic things, it has become a reality…
There are two options for eyeliner:
Option one is called an enhancement and is simply a thin, natural looking line along the lash line. This is achieved by making several small dots along the lashes, which blend together into a smooth, slim line.
Option two is the eyeliner and is designed for those looking for more of a make-up look. This look is achieved by adding another line on top of the enhancement. Semi-Permanent eyeliner is delicately applied with a sterile applicator made specifically for such a sensitive job. Colour is applied along both the upper and lower lash lines, creating a defined but soft radiance around the eyes. If you were after a stronger look, thickness of the colour may be increased gradually over several sessions.
Any one of these things is great for making your day easier. All of them together? Be prepared to pick a new Netflix show to fill your spare time…
