I am a beauty blogger and absolutely love the ritual of coating my face in foundation every day, topping up lipstick when it fades, filling in brows in case the rain washes the filled in powder and keep re-correcting my eye liner at times of smudging and smearing. But I can totally see why many wouldn't find this so called ‘ritual’ appealing or convenient especially to abide by every day. If you fit into this criterion, semi permanent makeup by Sian Dellar will be your best bet. It’s not something that’s a taboo or frowned upon by people any more. If clown like make-up comes to your mind when you think of semi permanent makeup, you need to check out Sian Dellar’s before-after client pictures which will completely change your mind.
I absolutely love her techniques which she adapts depending on the client’s preference and needs. For instance, eye brow hairs can be stroked in prominently or you can have a soft powdered effect for just some depth and definition. It goes without saying that these treatments are all waterproof so rain or shine, humidity or mist – your brow hairs will luckily stay in place! Semi Permanent Makeup treatments like eye brow tattooing have now become a part and parcel of celebrities lives and if you simply google Hollywood celebrities who have opted for permanent makeup, a long and a very interesting list comes up including the stunning Megan Fox.
If you’re worried about the process, don’t be as Sian is highly qualified and includes a consultation session in her treatment fee to set you at ease and discuss all possible concerns that you may have. A numb cream is used prior to the treatment so you don’t feel a thing and complete after care is provided, including a top-up session 6 weeks later to accommodate for any changes or to perfect results. Eyeliner and Lip Enhancement are budding treatments in the area of permanent makeup and they include defining the upper and/or lower lash line and enhancing the shape or the colour of the lips. If you’re thinking of 60’s overtly defined lips then that’s not the case. Think about Make-up Artist Lisa Eldridge’s modern way of cheating a new lip line – that’s what Sian aims to achieve.
However much I feel I do not need semi permanent makeup, I personally would love to wake up with flushed lips, full brows and defined eyes. If you suffer from sparse eye brows, extremely thin lips or even sensitive eyes that don’t allow you to play with eye liner/mascara, permanent makeup can be the way to go this New Year.
