A Guide To Semi Permanent Eyebrow Make Up

The shape, thickness and arch of the eyebrow tattoo are used to express human emotions such as empathy, surprise and anger and are important in giving the face a fresh, attractive and youthful appearance.

Applying and maintaining eyebrow make up using eyebrow pencils and powder can be time consuming and can sometimes give an uneven and mis-shapen appearance. Semi permanent eyebrow makeup is growing in popularity because it gives an attractive and youthful eyebrow everyday without having to spend time applying makeup every morning. People that need to look good at all times but do not have the time to carry around or apply makeup can now have perfectly applied make up from the moment they get out of bed.

The treatment can also be used to correct any natural asymmetries or uneven brows. It can also be used to give a natural youthful eyebrow raise without the use of plastic surgery or Botox. People with hair loss or patchy hair growth affecting the eyebrow including sufferers of alopecia and chemotherapy patients can now use semi permanent eyebrow make up to simulate the effect of natural hair growth. It is also used in people with disabilities who may not be able to physically apply makeup.

A skilled permanent make up technician should assess your facial structure and skin tone to achieve a perfectly defined and shaped eyebrow. They should use the correct blend of pigments can to simulate the appearance of natural three dimensional hair growth. The arch and shape of the brows will be selected to give the best frame and balance to the facial structure.

For your enhanced eyebrows, you can choose from a soft and subtle powder pencilled look, or the more defined hair stroke brow using three dimensional hair simulation.

A soft and subtle powder pencilled look for those that want to improve the shape of their eyebrows and add definition to the border with less hair stroke definition. This treatment is especially popular amongst blonde clients who wish to achieve a soft hint of colour.

Achieve a natural looking three-dimensional hair stroke effect with semi permanent pigment implanted in the shape of tiny hair strokes to mimic your natural hair growth. Many practitioners offer this treatment but few have mastered it as we have. We follow the direction of your hair growth to allow the simulated hairs to sit in harmony with your existing brow. These hairs can be tightly compact for a neater brow or spread slightly further apart for a sparse, less defined effect. This can also be used for people with reduced or patchy hair growth on the eyebrow, including sufferers of alopecia and chemotherapy patients.

The technician will custom blend a colour to suit you, anything from Swedish blonde to ginger nut red and espresso brunette. You do not always need to shave your eyebrows prior to the procedure as experienced technicians will try and work with your natural eyebrow shape.

Before proceeding with semi permanent eyebrow make up treatment the technician will apply a topical anaesthetic cream to numb the area before. The procedure is relatively painless, and can take about 90 minutes. The effects can last for about three years. A touch up is recommended every 12 to 18 months.
