Summers usually mean having to deal with sweat and smudgy make-up on a regular basis. Even after spending hours before the mirror, it takes only a few seconds to ruin the whole effort. Moreover, if there is a wedding to attend, it gets all the more troublesome to maintain your look throughout the day. That is why it is highly recommended to decide on permanent cosmetics. It is an innovative method in which natural pigments are applied into the skin’s dermal layer for the purpose of enhancing a woman’s features.
This process is also referred to as Intradermal Pigmentation and used for a range of cosmetic enhancements such as permanent liner, lip color/liner and eyebrows among others. This procedure can be compared to tattoo application. Sterile, clean and disposable needles are used for depositing a color pigment into the skin. The best thing about permanent cosmetics is that it relieves you from the hectic process of applying make-up daily before stepping out of your house, once and for all. Once this procedure is done, you can confidently head to the beach without worrying about your makeup getting smudged or smeared.
Permanent cosmetics particularly help at the time of weddings and other such grand celebrations. Any wedding involves a lot of running around and some highly emotional moments. Both these activities are highly dangerous in the sense that they can ruin your entire look. A harmless tear can make your eye makeup run down your cheeks thereby destroying those endless hours of work at one go. However, if you opt for permanent cosmetics, you can not only run around freely but also shake a leg and get emotional as the situation demands.
As stated earlier, permanent makeup can be of different types. For instance, the procedure for lip color is meant to alter and shape and size of the lips along with its color. With the help of this procedure, lipstick is prevented from bleeding into the skin that surrounds the lip. Again, Intradermal Pigmentation for eyebrows is concerned with mimicking the appearance of hair in the line of the brow. If you have always wanted fuller brows, this procedure is meant for you. You can confidently go for swimming or wipe your forehead, without feeling embarrassed about losing your eyebrows.
Permanent makeup is an ideal solution for women who do not have much time in their hands to apply makeup everyday or simply hate the process owing to the time it takes. Sarah Oliver of Naturally You is a certified and skilled technician, you do not have to worry about its safety. Moreover, the whole procedure takes only 30 minutes to one hour so that you can easily squeeze some time out from your busy schedule.
You would be happy to know that this process is indeed permanent as the name suggests. There may be a slight fading of the color over time due to the phenomenon of natural skin shedding in the facial area. However, that is hardly a bother because those can be taken care of by minor touch ups.
Summertime – think “make up kit” for travel, to try a new look, or start a healthy habit using a daily SPF?
I find that the simplest approach is to narrow down the products needed to get you what you want. Kits are great way to start a new habit or routine to get those results. Often times just the thought of change is enough to stop us from taking steps that give us the results we want. It’s work, one more things to think about, etc. You know the self-talk I’m speaking of?

If you have thinning or sparse eyebrows or want a break from the daily job of penciling, powdering or drawing on your brows, you can may decide on permanent eyebrows. It is a solution that can give you permanent relief from having to draw your brows each time you step out of your house or every morning. The good thing is that it is not a time consuming process but takes only about an hour, after which you can get eyebrows in the color and shape of your choice.
A hair-like stroke is used for doing permanent eyebrows which look absolutely natural. At times, the brow shape is filled in with a solid color by certain technicians. However, that is not desirable as it makes the brows appear harsh and dark. Actually, everything depends on the experience, ability and skill of the permanent cosmetic artist doing the job. If you are planning to go for it, make sure to check out qualifications, experiences and references of any permanent makeup artist thoroughly. It is also important to take a look at before/after pictures of the artist’s previous work. This is much less troublesome than correcting a procedure after it is done and you are not happy with the outcome.
As mentioned earlier, this procedure takes about one to one and a half hours to complete. This means it won’t be too difficult for you to squeeze some time out from your busy schedule to get it done. Majority of the time is devoted to drawing a pattern and evening the brows by making them symmetrical. It is crucial to shape them exactly the way you want before making any permanent mark. Once this stage is over, the real procedure does not take more than 30 minutes. A local anesthetic is offered by most artists for numbing the brows.
There are certain things you should remember with regard to permanent eyebrows. Firstly, after the procedure is done, the brow area may get slightly pinkish and stay so for about an hour. And, if such a thing happens with you, do not panic. Secondly, the color of the brow is likely to be a little dark for about three to five days after the procedure. However, they won’t be so dark that you cannot go out in public.
After about five days, you can see the surface pigment flaking off, enabling you to see what pigment remains under the skin. Even after the brows are healed, there may be some lighter areas. However, that isn’t a big problem as a follow-up visit can solve it with ease.
Then, if you do not want to go through the rigorous process of dressing your eyebrows everyday and perennially live with the fear of them sweating off this summer, opt for this permanent solution. Your appearance can be dramatically transformed by permanent eyebrows, making you look younger and enhancing your natural beauty. What is more, they have the ability to withstand the consequences of chemotherapy treatments.
