About Semi Permanent Makeup
Not everyone has full or perfectly shaped lips, we have many clients that have “thin lips” often we lose the pigment in our lips and they fade in colour.
The use of micro-pigmentation on the lips can create the impression of a fuller lip by taking the outer line slightly outside of the normal borders of your natural lips then blending in the colour to give a better shape and definition. The lip liner can also prevent your lipstick from bleeding.
The colour can be tailored to suit your skin tones and rejuvenate the look of a narural full lip and you can still alter the lip colour by applying lipstick over the top for the occasional times that you wish to change for fashion purposes.
Permanent makeup allows you to have a degree of colour and shape all of the time no matter whether its first thing in the morning or during exercise and saves time as no daily re-application required.
