When semi-permanent make-up could be a good option
There are various reasons why someone might want to invest in semi-permanent make-up and not simply for vanity.
The average woman spends an estimated 43 whole weeks of her lifetime applying make-up, and that’s before adding the time spent on removing it.
So clearly there is a time element involved – if you wear make-up regularly then removing the need to perform this daily will save considerable time.
It might even mean saving money; semi-permanent make-up will last for several years and therefore negate the need to buy cosmetics over and over again.
There are specific reasons beyond cost and time saved that may be a determining factor, for example a semi-permanent eyebrow treatment may help someone who lacks natural eyebrows due to over-plucking or alopecia.
Other reasons that might necessitate semi-permanent make-up include conditions that effect mobility in the hands or arms, for example amputees or those with neurological impairments which affect the use of the hands.
In order to achieve a satisfactory result it’s vital to use a professional that you feel can trust – if you wish to then you should be able to have a look at photographs of previous work that they have carried out.
It’s also advisable to err on the side of less is more, rather than going for a full effect of lips, eyebrows and eyeliner. Not only may your tastes change over the years but so too might the shape and condition of your face which might alter the overall effect.
