If you spend a lot of time on your makeup in the morning, you may be tempted by semi-permanent makeup. Semi-permanent makeup can make a huge difference to your day, saving you time while boosting your confidence.
Semi-permanent makeup solutions include semi-permanent eyebrows, lash lifts and tints. Here’s everything you need to know about why we love semi-permanent makeup:
It’s Easy to Do
Semi-permanent makeup sounds a bit intimidating, but it’s easy from your perspective. Just lay back and stay still – and that’s all you need to worry about! While the appointments can be fairly long (especially in the case of eyebrows), it’s very easy in terms of aftercare.
Here’s what you can expect from the different types of semi-permanent makeup:
Semi-permanent eyebrows are an excellent solution for thin or sparse eyebrows. Using very small blades in a tool that looks a little like a pen, your therapist will draw individual ‘hairs’ onto your skin, giving you semi-permanent eyebrows that will last for 12-18 months, requiring the occasional top-up session. If getting your eyebrows even every day causes you stress, this is one to go for.
Lash Lifts and Tints
Lash lifts boost your lashes, curling them from the root. This makes them look longer and thicker every day without having to use curlers and mascara every day. It’s a quick and easy procedure, too.
It combines well with lash tints. Lash tinting is like hair dye for your eyelashes – it makes them darker, so you won’t have to bother with mascara if you don’t want to. It looks natural and beautiful and can last for 4-8 weeks.
It Saves Time
If you’re always in a rush, semi-permanent makeup can work wonders. Curled eyelashes and professionally shaped eyebrows make you look ‘put together’ without having to put any effort in. It can also save you a bit of money on eyebrow pencils and mascara!
The Aftercare Is Easy
The aftercare is really easy. For semi-permanent eyebrows, you should avoid getting the area wet for ten days. This includes trying to keep your face dry when you’re showering or bathing. You should avoid makeup for at least a week, and don’t pick at any scabs that may form.
Aftercare for lash lifts and tints is similar. Just go gentle with your eyelashes for a few days, avoiding getting them wet for the first 24 hours. Avoid using harsh products and eye makeup for 24 hours, and avoid waterproof mascaras if you can.
If you want to save time and look naturally put together every day, why not book an appointment for semi-permanent eyebrows or lash lifting and tinting?
