Shaded eyeliner - Semi-permanent make-up: Is it here to stay?

Semi-permanent make-up is still a relatively new beauty trend, but lately, it has become more and more popular. These days, almost everybody is trying out some kind of semi-permanent makeup procedure from celebrities and influencers to regular people who like the idea of having a look they can stick with for longer, along with saving time while getting ready. 

What is Semi-Permanent Make-up?

Semi-permanent make-up is a general term that refers to procedures that result in semi-permanent markings on the face that look like a certain makeup product has been applied. However, unlike conventional makeup that can be smudged and needs to be removed at the end of each day, semi-permanent makeup lasts much longer, often for several months or even more than a year while remaining perfect throughout. They are referred to as semi-permanent as they do not last forever and will need to be reapplied after a while, due to natural fading that will occur. 

Why More People Opting for Semi-Permanent Makeup?

It’s clear to see that semi-permanent makeup is a popular option these days. And, there are many reasons why people are deciding to invest in this procedure. One of the main reasons is that it allows you to have your makeup just as you like it every day. If you have ever done your eyeliner perfect one day and then couldn’t get it the same no matter how hard you tried the next, then you’ll know how frustrating it can be.

With semi-permanent makeup, you don’t have to worry about replicating your favourite looks, as they are there to stay. In addition, it’s also very convenient. You can save a lot of time getting ready in the morning when your eyebrows, lips or eyeliner are already done. You can also use semi-permanent makeup to hide blemishes such as lip discolouration or sparse eyebrows or to reshape the face’s areas to a look you prefer. 

Types of Semi-Permanent Makeup

There are a number of different types of semi-permanent makeup that you can go for. Some popular options include:

Semi permanent make up - eyeliner

This is a semi-permanent procedure that creates the look of wearing eyeliner by tattooing it on. The artist will use a cosmetic tattooing device to insert semi-permanent pigments into the skin on your eyelids, drawing on the eyeliner in the shape that you want. It is a popular choice as anybody who wears makeup knows that eyeliner can be a time-consuming part of the makeup routine to get right, so having semi-permanent eyeliner can be much more convenient. 

Semi permanent make up - eyebrows

Often used to create a stronger, fuller, and more defined brow,  semi-permanent brows can add more symmetry and volume while complimenting the face. It is ideal for people who have good eyebrows, but they are lacking in some volume. 

Semi-Permanent Lips

Semi permanent make up - lips

Semi-permanent lips are a great way to get more youthful, fuller lips. As we get older, we naturally lose lip line definition, and the natural pigments will break up leading to more unevenness. Semi-permanent lips are a procedure that can be used to restore the lip line and create more fullness. You can have it done in different colours depending on what you prefer. 


Semi permanent eyebrows

Microblading is one of the most popular semi-permanent make-up treatments available. It is ideal for people who have thin or sparse eyebrows. Natural-looking, individual hair strokes are tattooed onto the eyebrow to add more definition and volume to the brows, creating a thicker and more youthful appearance.
