Permanent makeup can often be perceived as a little daunting with tales of huge, dramatic eyebrows resembling permanent marker and very dramatic lip liner that wouldn’t look natural on anyone, but these treatments have come a very long way over the years.
Lovers of cosmetic procedures are now looking to permanent makeup to enhance their natural features so subtly that no one would ever know they’ve had anything done. So, with that in mind, here’s 3 treatments we love for boosting your confidence while still maintaining the most natural look that will stand the test of time.
K.B Pro Brows: Microblading
This innovative technique developed by our very own Karen Betts, uses a specially designed hand held tool to enable artist to create ultra-fine hair strokes which mimic the look of natural brows. Using a mix of beautiful strokes in varying lengths and directions along with the K.B Pro pigments (also developed by Karen Betts) to blend in with your natural hair colour, the results are so incredibly natural looking, no-one even needs to know you’ve had the treatment. It can be your little secret! Gone are the thick, dark heavy brows and here to stay are perfect, full, natural looking brows to compliment your own face shape; we guarantee your brows will never go out of style.
We’d all love voluminous, fluttery eyelashes every morning but achieving the look using a subtle eyeliner is easier than you may think. Instead of a super sharp liner or a cat eye flick, a lash enhancement treatment will add definition to the eyes without even looking like an eyeliner. Pigment is dotted along the lash line to subtly enhance your eyes and make your lashes look thicker and fuller. People won’t be able to put their finger on what’s changed but your eyes will look defined and sultry.
Lip re-contour and blush
Contouring the face to get those supermodel cheek bones is something we’ve all heard of, but how about contouring the lips? Contouring the lips with a slightly deeper colour than your natural lip colour creates a fuller looking lip without the need for lashings of lip gloss or lip fillers. Choosing a permanent lip treatment to subtly shade the outer areas of your lips can also give you beautifully defined lips every single day, so you can pucker up any time without worrying about an embarrassing ‘lipstick on teeth’ scenario.
With these subtle tweaks and enhancements, you can achieve stunning definition without the need for heavy makeup. It’s not just your eyes, lips or brows that will change, that glow of confidence will shine through and make you look your very best.
