What should you expect before you get Semi-Permanent Makeup?

Thinking of getting your makeup permanently applied? Maybe you hate applying your eyeliner, eyebrow daily, or you aren’t able to apply it as precisely as you’d like, or maybe you just hate the constant struggle of trying to achieve the perfect cat eye or perfect eyebrow. Or maybe you don’t have time every day and rushing to go to work without eyebrow. Whatever your reasons, you may find a solution in getting semi-permanent makeup.

First of all, it’s important to note that permanent eyeliner, eyebrow, lip tint isn’t really permanent (more on that later). It’s just the term that the industry uses, and is more accurately semi-permanent. A needle is used to deposit ink into the skin. The process isn’t the same as getting a tattoo because the pigment is deposited only into the first layers of the skin. The ink used for regular body tattoos is formulated differently and goes much deeper. The longevity of the color and its visibility will eventually fade depends on the skin of each person.

“As a precaution, we ask [clients] to stop taking any blood thinners for three days prior, most as possible 1 week before clients appointment, even things like aspirin, Advil, fish oils, certain vitamins, to minimize any potential bleeding, which normally doesn’t happen,” And if you’re pregnant or nursing, or have diabetes or other serious illnesses that affect your immune system and ability to heal, you may not be an ideal candidate of having a semi-permanent makeup or it’s a good idea to speak to your doctor about it before you go ahead with your permanent or semi-permanent makeup application.

The technician or the beauty artist will work with the client and take into account their facial features to determine what size and shape the eyeliner or the eyebrow should be.

How long does the procedure take? The procedure will take depends on how [thick] the client wants it and the skin of the client, If they want traditional eyeliner, natural eyebrow or just like natural lip for lip tint, it can be done in one to two hour, including numbing and pre-drawing, but if they like a wing or cat eye, it would take longer.

Does it hurt? One of the most frequently asked questions about permanent makeup concerns the matter of pain. Luckily there are now many products the permanent makeup technician can use that will reduce the pain of any and all procedures. A numbing cream is applied to the area prior to the actual procedure. Once the effects of the cream kick in, the whole process should theoretically be pretty painless. However, everyone has a different pain tolerance, which means some people might find the procedure to be only minimally uncomfortable, while others may find it to be very painful even with a numbing cream. When thinking about it, most people assume permanent eyeliner is the most painful procedure. Some clients who’ve said their eyeliner procedure was more painful than microblading. Permanent lip work is the most painful procedure but well worth the effort. The freedom from not having to wear lipstick while exercising, going out in public and for any time where it might be a hassle, makes permanent lip color a wonderful service to consider.

What’s the healing process? You may experience some scabbing, but it will likely be minimal. If you do have scabbing, do not pick it off, you may notice little black flakes fall out. The application should generally heal within three to seven days, but a thicker application may take seven to 10 days. You should definitely avoid touching or rubbing while they heal, so you don’t spread any germs or bacteria around the area but the healing process differs from person to person and depends on several factors.

How long does it last? And if you hate it, will it ever fully disappear? The “tattooed” eyeliner typically lasts about a year, though it could last two or three years. However, the pigment will eventually fade. Some of my clients come back after about a year to get touch-ups. If you eventually decide you don’t want the eyeliner, it’s possible for it to completely fade in one to three years. Everyone’s skin holds the pigment differently, so it’s tough to say how long it will take for the liner to become invisible. Microblading generally lasts from 12 to 24 months, although depending on the individual it can last longer. From 12-15 months after your initial visit, you can book an appointment to maintain your eyebrow shape and give the color a boost. The healing process differs from person to person and depends on several factors.

The big question: How much does it cost? Having your eyeliner, eyebrow or whatever semi-permanent makeup you want to apply this way definitely doesn’t come cheap. Semi-Permanent makeup typically costs $50 to $800 per procedure, depending on the type of makeup, the body part and number of visits required. Eyebrows, which usually require two visits, usually cost $400 to $600. Permanent eyeliner usually costs $200 to $400 for just upper or just lower eyeliner, or $400 to $600 for upper and lower. A full lip color with liner, which typically requires two to three visits, typically costs $600 to $800. As with any tattoo, color can fade over time and periodic touch-ups might be required. And the cost still depends on the clinic or area.

What are the benefits and Importance of Semi-Permanent Makeup?

Here are some of the many advantages of getting Semi-Permanent.

It will save you time

How many mornings have you woken up after snoozing your alarm more than three times only to realize you’re now running more than 30 minutes late for work? But wait! You can’t leave just yet, you don’t have your makeup on!For many women, this is a daily routine — spending 15 minutes every morning filling in your eyebrows, doing your eyeliner, etc. Depending on your beauty needs, there are some of these steps you are not willing to skip. You’ll be able to sleep an extra 15 minutes every day because you won’t have to fill in your eyebrows , eyeliner, Foundation or lipstick anymore. Saves you time in the morning for make-up application and at night there is less removal.

It will save you money

Do the math! How much are you spending on eyebrow filling products every year? Brushes? Foundation? Eyeliner? Lipstick? It adds up, doesn’t it? We’ve discussed here that Semi-Permanent Makeup is an investment. Why? Because while it may not be cheap upfront, it will last up to about 3 years (if you’re looking for a long-lasting procedure, consider permanent makeup). You’ll get back all that money you’re spending on makeup and as an extra return on investment, you’ll also save loads of time. Overall costs associated with purchasing makeup brands can add up over a period of time. You can avoid all this and never have to worry about running out of your favorite eyeliner or eyebrow pencil.The benefits of semi-permanent makeup outlined above will also apply to people who suffer from allergies associated with traditional makeup brands, the visually impaired or those with sensitive skin.

Confidence

The benefits of semi-permanent makeup when considering confidence and self-esteem are immeasurable. Whether you’re specific medical conditions such as alopecia, undergoing chemotherapy treatments, wishing to disguise scars, burns, or disfigurements or just wish to cosmetically enhance your natural appearance for other reasons, we have a range of treatments to suit you. The benefits of semi-permanent makeup is that it can be effectively used to simulate eye brows, lashes, thinning scalp and hair loss. Semi-Permanent is meant to look extremely natural, a natural and strong frame to their faces for the first time in their lives. Everybody knows how important eyebrows are to the harmony of a face, and let’s not ignore how trendy eyebrows have become recently. A good set of eyebrows will set you apart from the rest and will give you a stunning facial feature that will be the first thing anyone sees when they first look at you.

Consistency

Professional career women as well as models, actresses, models and presenters are rejecting traditional makeup trends in favor of more permanently enhanced looks. Here again, the benefits of semi-permanent makeup will really play a role. You can be guaranteed to portray a sophisticated look with the minimal of effort, always look your best and remain confident in your appearance throughout the day. Is it NOT permanent. Its duration varies from person to person and in the best of cases can last up to 3 years. The benefit of that impermanence is that you can choose not to get it redone if you want to go back to what you liked before you got microblading, you can get miroshading.

No Upkeep

This is probably one of the best things about Semi-Permanent. Once you get the procedure, and you go through the healing process, you can virtually forget about it and continue your life as you would have without it. Semi permanent will not smudge or smear off. Allows you to enjoy smudge-free sports. You can go to saunas, swim, work out, wipe your eyebrows time and time again, you don’t have to worry. Look great before, during and after gym work-outs!

Rejuvenation

Skin fades, lips lose their volume and color over time and eyebrows thin. One major benefit of semi-permanent makeup is that very natural looking treatments can easily remedy these concerns. Lips can be reshaped to appear fuller and more defined, eyebrows given a more youthful appearance, eyelashes given broader definition and skin rejuvenated with a skin tone to enhance eye and hair color.

Versatility

Beauty artists or aesthetician recognise that beauty trends move with the times. Although they would not perform a treatment described as ‘too trendy,’ a further benefit of semi-permanent make up is that it is versatile. Colors used are chosen to complement your skin tones, eye and hair color, but these can be changed at any time by blending other colors over the original ones for a special occasion or change of look.

Safety

Your health and safety are of major importance and all trained make-up artists will recognise this and follow prescribed guidelines and regulations. The benefit of semi-permanent makeup over traditional brands is that patch tests are required prior to applying. This ensures complete compatibility. In addition, pre-packed sterile cartridges are used new for each client. Beauty artists working within this sector are fully trained in all techniques and therefore a further benefit of semi-permanent makeup is that your safety is guaranteed. Pigments are organic and specifically designed to not change in color but to just wear off with time. If you’re afraid of needles, you don’t have to worry at all about microblading. Standard procedure is to use numbing topical ointments instead of local anesthesia, so you won’t ever be injected with a responsible esthetician. The ointments work wonders and you really shouldn’t feel any pain. Some people feel so relaxed they even fall asleep!

Beauty picks products of July and review

Its been a month when Innisfree came to the Philippines and before that, I am already a user of K-beauty products including Face Shop, Missha, Tony Moly, Etude House, Nature Republic. And the favorites that I am consistently using are the Face shop and Missha though Missha brand is hard to find because they don’t have a physical store unlike others that you can easily find inside the mall. But I found one a small booth in landmark Makati and another option is to buy online.

The first-ever Innisfree’s physical store opens to the public last  November 28, 2018, and is located on the ground floor of SM Mall of Asia’s main mall.

I wanted to try the Innisfree moisturizer gel because I heard it is one of a good moisturizer in the Philippines. Since I run out of gel moisturizer that I’ve been using for 3 years I came up buying Innisfree as I wanted and I am overwhelmed that it is only P450 for 300ml. It contains 93% extract of Jeju organic aloe flesh Aloe gel-like flesh inside the leaves contains more amino acid and moisture than its leaves and any other parts of aloe, which helps soothes the skin damaged from UV rays and heat while providing intensive moisture to the skin.  Aloe Vitalizing Energy™ unique to the Innisfree Aloe line soothes the skin and strengthens the skin barrier to make it vibrant and feeling fresh. You can use it in all areas where intensive moisturization is required due to irritation by the external environments such as hair, face, arms, and legs to revitalize and energize the skin through deep moisturization.

How to use

Apply an appropriate amount to dry areas that need soothing, including hair, face, arms, and legs, and spread evenly for penetration as often as needed.

It’s very soothing, cooling and moisture. It is easily absorbed and leaves skin hydrated and smooth. It makes me feel so fresh. It was amazing and worth buying.

I also try the Innisfree My Lip And Cheek (Airy) 2. A feather-light airy texture with a soft, matte finish for your lips & cheeks! It has three different lip & cheek options but I choose Airy 2 because the color is more neutral to my skin. It is soft as jelly and as light as the air, it blends into my skin in a thin and smooth layer as if nothing has been applied. It has to be dub lightly from inner to outer part on both cheeks and lips. Using this lip and cheek airy I combined it with Innisfree My Eyeshadow (Matte) #52, A customizable eyeshadow collection completed according to your desired needs (silky yet matte). It brings out color on your eyes to the fullest, and with the silky texture, it glides smoothly, evenly onto the eyelids and lasts all day long. Easy to use, Easy to apply and no dust. It was really worth the effort and buying when I finally put everything together, this is finally something I can bring along with me for trips in my every day look, a neutral look, depending on my mood. I  created a video using Innisfree products and I want to share it. Feel free to write your comments about my look.

National Lipstick Day

NATIONAL LIPSTICK DAY

National Lipstick Day today July 29th encourages you to wear your best color.  For some women, lipstick is the only makeup requirement. Whether sheer and light or dark or bright, July 29th calls for all kinds of lipstick.

Of course, versatility is lipstick’s brand. It changes with a mood or with the scenery. Whether lipstick defines your attitude or channels your inner spirit, wear it today July 29th. No matter your style, lipstick adds a subtle accent or a bold statement. Let your lips speak. However, punctuate it with your lipstick.

While incredibly popular today, lipstick actually goes way back. It’s been a symbol of culture, status, and personal style for ages. As we all know, different colors evoke different feelings, and nothing completes an outfit like a bold, beautiful lip.

In prior years, National Lipstick Day celebrations occurred on an annual basis with no declaration. As of 2016, beauty blogger, entrepreneur and International Businesswoman, Huda Kattan was named the modern-day founder of National Lipstick Day by a Proclamation from National Day Calendar’s Registrar.

What does your favorite lipstick shade say about you?

Red: You’re confident, command attention and love being in a position of power. It’s fearless, charismatic and clever, a combination of cosmetics and confidence,  When you walk into a room, all eyes turn your way.

Light Pink: You’re sweet as can be, but that doesn’t stop you from wanting to have a little fun. People are drawn to your infectious personality. Hot Pink: You’re the life of the party — it doesn’t matter whether you’re dancing up a storm, manning the music selection, or chatting up guests. Light and medium pink shades of lipstick are understated but classically feminine.

Purple: You’re the wild card of the friend group and constantly seek adventure. You know spontaneity is the spice of life. Purple lipstick shades symbolize power, luxury, and magic but also a little mystery. These colors are feminine and romantic, yet strong and confident.

Nude: You’re practical and mean business. Others trust you to get the job done right — the first time. Some women believe it’s meant to be a shade similar to our skin tone, while others define it simply as a neutral.

This National Lipstick Day, I am sharing my personal lipstick in a different brand. My favorite brand in Faceshop, Marykay matte lipstick, Mac and Maybelline. Sometimes I make my ombre lip version I just add dark lipstick and light color in the middle, I also do light color and add dark then pup my lips. I will share more tips and tricks on my next blog.

While you flaunt your favorite lip color, pucker up. Take a photo. Share your best tips and tricks. What’s your favorite color or brand?  Share what you love about lipstick on social media using #NationalLipstickDay.
