Semi-Permanent Makeup: 3 Reasons That Make It Worth Trying
Semi-permanent makeup could be referred to differently by people. While some may call it cosmetic tattooing others may call micropigmentation or permanent makeup. No matter which of one these words or phrases are used, the main procedure remains the same; that is implanting pigments into the upper layer of skin to enhance facial features.
When semi-permanent makeup is applied to the eyebrows, it is called microblading eyebrows or 3D eyebrow embroidery. In this treatment, the makeup artist makes thinning or patching eyebrows look fuller by implanting pigments in the form of hair strokes in the epidermis. When semi-permanent makeup is applied to the eyelids, it is called permanent eyeliner or more precisely tattooed eyeliner. In this treatment, the role of the implanted pigments is to make the eyes appear bigger and brighter.
Semi-permanent makeup can also be applied to the lips. If so, the process is referred to as lip blushing, permanent lip tinting, permanent lip tattoo, or permanent lip coloring. The aim of this process is to make the lips have a more defined shape by adding permanent color to the lips.
Now the main question here is if regular makeup procedures can bring about the same aforementioned changes, what actually is so special about semi-permanent procedures? To provide the answer to this question, Let us go through three advantages that semi-permanent procedures such as microblading eyebrow, eyeliner and lip blushing have over regular makeup procedures.
It Saves a Lot of Time
The time spent by women on their hair and makeup daily varies from person to person. While there are women who can get their perfect look by spending about 15 minutes, there are others who need even more than an hour to get their desired look. No matter how much time is spent daily on makeup, there is no doubt that if we could maintain our desired makeup for a long time without the need to refresh them, our lives would be much easier!
Well, semi-permanent makeup procedures have made this possible at least to some extent. For example, once you get your favorite eyebrow shape with microblading, you don’t need to go through the hassle of filling your eyebrows and getting them to match on a daily basis. Indeed, you will have the privilege of leaving them alone for at least one year. Isn’t it wonderful?
No Smudging or Wearing Off
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could wear your favorite lip color without being worried about it coming off every time that you eat or drink? It surely is. Right? Lip blushing makes this possible for a minimum of 2 years. Once you are done with the treatment, you can basically eat, drink, kiss, swim and literally do whatever you want to do with your lips without being worried about anything.
Likewise, permanent eyeliner is a great solution for those people with watery eyes. Once you are done with the treatment, there is no need to be worried about your eyeliner running or making a mess anymore. Moreover, it should be emphasized that semi-permanent procedures are particularly suitable for those who engage themselves in exercises that cause a lot of sweating.
A Great Solution for Hair Loss
Hair loss and eyebrow hair loss can happen due to medical reasons such as alopecia areata, stress, hormonal changes and etc. whatever the reason is, scalp micropigmentation and microblading eyebrows are excellent methods to cover up the intended areas in hair loss and eyebrow hair loss respectively. Both of these procedures give a very natural look. The implanted pigments can simulate hairs superbly. In addition, their effects can last for a long time (in the case of the scalp micropigmentation, they could last up to eight years) without any need for maintenance. Last but not least, pretty much all the time, they are guaranteed to work.
