I don’t know about you, but my makeup takes up all my morning. Usually, I find the time to do it, however, when I’m in a hurry it gets pretty interesting. I either give up on some steps in my makeup routine or I force myself to get up earlier. And yes, you guessed it right, it is not fun. I think, at last, I have to do something about it. Lately, I’ve become highly interested in permanent makeup. Have you heard of it? If not, enjoy my post.
What is permanent makeup?
Permanent makeup is a form of tattoo treatment. The appropriately chosen color is being injected as a pigment under the skin. Its color matches brows, lips, skin or other parts of the face and body color. Permanent makeup is used for beauty and medical purposes. It is used:
- to restore lips with symmetrical appearance,
- to draw lines on the eyelids and to make eyelashes optically denser,
- to improve eyebrows appearance,
- to complement the lips’ color.
Permanent makeup – the methods
We can differentiate the following permanent makeup methods:
- Hair strokes – leaves you with natural effect; brows become optically bigger and slightly darker. It is recommended for people who have thin eyebrows or undetermined shape. During the treatment individual lines are drawn that imitate eyebrows.
- Soft powder brows – the best method for younger people with full and fair brows that allows subtle definition.
- Ombre powder brows – the treatment is slightly more complicated, but the effect resembles styled brows. The colors used make it possible for colors to blend naturally.
- Bold combo and soft combo – techniques combining the two methods – hair strokes and powder brows.
How long does permanent makeup heal?
It all depends on the skin capability to regenerate and the skincare we implement. Post permanent treatment you have to moisturize the area which will allow for the pigment to last longer. The best are products with vitamin E and A. The proper care includes also avoiding tanning salons or a swimming pool.
The contradictions for permanent makeup
Unfortunately, not all of us can undergo permanent makeup treatment. The contradictions are pregnancy, breastfeeding, diabetes, psoriasis, hemophilia, and treatment with steroids.
