Even if you’re someone who loves getting made up, finding the time to do it on a daily basis can be difficult.
Well, there’s good news for you courtesy of a procedure called semi-permanent makeup. Intrigued and want to know more about it? Then keep reading…
What is Semi‐Permanent Make Up?
A cosmetic procedure that adds a semi-permanent layer of makeup to enhance various facial features. It can be applied to your eyebrows, eyes, eyelashes, and lips. This state-of-the-art procedure has been used by models, actors, and entertainers as a means of enhancing their appearance. The basic idea is that you get to choose the right shade and shape for each component before a qualified makeup artist tattoos them on your face.
Who is it suitable for?
Semi-permanent makeup is ideal for almost everybody, except for women who are on blood thinners. It is especially helpful for people who are dealing with bald patches (Alopecia Areata) leading to loss of eyebrow hair.
This procedure is also perfect for women whose hands are too unsteady for them to apply makeup or cannot do so due to poor vision.
In short, it is a good fit for anyone who wants to wake up looking good, without their makeup smudged up. It can also come in handy for athletes and swimmers!
What does it involve?
If it is your eyebrows that you are getting done, then the makeup artist will be using a “micro-stroke technique”. They will tattoo individual hairs with a needle, so your eyebrows will look naturally fuller.
For the lips, this procedure corrects the pigment that women lose as they get older. A skilled makeup artist will match the pink colour that is found inside your bottom lip to keep things looking natural as ever.
If you want to deviate from the original colour and shape of your eyebrow or lips, then you can perform patch tests to see what the results would be like. Once you are satisfied, you can go on with the procedure.
Pros and Cons
- The look can be as natural or as outrageous as you want it to be. Thus, you can get your lips painted a natural pink or a delicious red. The procedure allows a high degree of customisation.
- The pigmentation is quite shallow in all cases of semi-permanent makeup. That means it will keep on fading and getting lighter over the course of 2 to 3 years, hence why the results are semi-permanent.
- Provided that you visit an expert who knows what they are doing, i.e. you won’t be exposed to cheap tattoo ink. A good makeup artist will only use high-quality pigments that look as natural as possible.
You will have to avoid frequent use of products that contain the following ingredients since they can speed up the rate at which the pigment will be fading:
- Vitamin C
You will also have to get the makeup retouched after 12 months or so to keep it looking fresh.
Just Jade will provide aftercare instructions when your treatment is finished, you will also receive an aftercare balm as well, to help the area heal and maximise the treatment. Taking care of your semi-permeant makeup is not challenging or time-consuming, it just requires a little TLC.
How long does it last?
Your semi-permanent makeup can last anywhere from 2-3 years, with regular top-ups, to maintain the colour.
