Cosmetics - Make the Most of Your Best Facial Features
We all have different opinions as to which are our best features; some have large eyes and know how to line them and add mascara to really make them stand out.
Others are lucky enough to have perfect "cupids bow" lips that need little or no defining.
Yet many women have no such luck and are left with thin lips, small eyes and sparse eyelashes. These ladies have to really spend a lot of time on their make up every day, and often several times a day.
For these ladies, and for anyone who wants to save time and money on repeated applications of make up, there is now the option of permanent make up, or permanent cosmetics, as it is also known.
The Professional Touch
Typical areas for permanent make up application are the cheeks, eyebrows, eyelids and lips. Eyebrows are a popular spot for permanent make up as aging and other conditions commonly cause hair loss above the eyes.
As any of us who are blessed (or cursed) with sparse eyebrows know, applying or colouring eyebrows on a daily basis can be a pain, and mistakes are easily made.
Eyebrow procedures can vary from a bit of shading to fill in sparse areas, to completely filling in the non-existent brow.
There are a number of permanent makeup UK clinics that specialise in these procedures, and they can be found online.
Permanent eyeliner is another highly sought-after procedure as applying eyeliner can be tricky, and it frequently smears or wears off. Permanent eyeliner can be applied lightly for a subtle appearance. If a more dramatic look is desired, a heavier line can be applied.
Lips Before and After
A Beautiful Mouth
If you are stuck with very thin lips, or lips that lack definition; a permanent lip line can redefine lips, or change the shape altogether.
Permanent lip liner can add distinction to lips, and is also a good foundation for lipstick, as well as redefining the shape of a mouth.
For those with dry lips, or whose lips require a little added colour; permanent lip colour might be ideal.
Tattooing the lip line may be a little uncomfortable, but well worth the effort when you see the results. Adding colour to the lips themselves requires a deft hand and a delicate technique, but again the results are worth the discomfort; like the saying goes "No pain No gain!"
Permanent Lip Colour
A handful of ladies opt for permanent blush, though this is not as popular as other procedures. While this procedure can add permanent healthy colour to your cheeks, it is important to know that it is not a good idea if you are in the sun a lot. UV rays interact with the colouring; creating an unnatural look.
Regardless of what form of permanent make up you choose, you will save time and money in repeated applications of regular cosmetics.
