Semi-Per­ma­nent Makeup

When it comes to makeup, es­pe­cially in our hot weather, you need a look that can go the dis­tance. An in­creas­ing num­ber of women are turn­ing to beauty treat­ments that en­sure longevity with­out mul­ti­ple ap­pli­ca­tions through­out the day. For those jug­gling a tight sched­ule or who are just fond of a min­i­mal­is­tic beauty rou­tine, eye­brow em­broi­dery is a game-changer, sav­ing en­ergy and valu­able time on busy morn­ings. For those who would like to take this even fur­ther, semi-per­ma­nent makeup can ex­tend to eye­lin­ers and even lip colours. To learn more, we con­sulted the ex­pe­ri­enced tech­ni­cians lead­ing the way in the in­dus­try.

What to Ex­pect

Con­sul­ta­tion: Dur­ing the con­sul­ta­tion, the tech­ni­cian will as­sess any con­tra-in­di­ca­tions such as med­i­ca­tions that might af­fect your suit­abil­ity for the treat­ment, along with your ob­jec­tives and ex­pec­taions. Your con­sul­ta­tion may also in­volve a patch test. Semi-per­ma­nent makeup will work for most peo­ple, but if you’re on med­i­ca­tion it may be worth check­ing with your GP prior. For ex­am­ple, those on blood thin­ners may not be the best can­di­dates.
