Semi Permanent Make Up
An introduction to semi permanent cosmetics
Semi Permanent makeup is a type of cosmetic tattooing that uses pharmaceutical grade pigments applied to the skin. The aim of the treatment is to give a natural make up appearance that perfectly complements your skin tone using the right combination of pigments to enhance your natural features.
The make-up can be used to frame the face and give fuller more defined eyebrows; on the eyelids as eye liner to enhance the natural eye line; on the lips add colour to the lips and on the lip line to achieve fuller more defined lips.
The following areas are treated:
Semi Permanent Eyebrow Make up
Semi Permanent Eyeliner Make up
Semi Permanent Lip Liner and Lip Make up
Semi Permanent Beauty Spots
Face Clinic London’s make-up technician
Our highly qualified technician, Rachel Pitman, has trained with Nouveau Contour- the industry leaders in semi permanent cosmetics. Her background in fine art has given her a unique and innate understanding of aesthetics and colour theory. Rachel will assess your features and give results that are tailored to your face shape and skin tone. Every client is treated individually to receive cosmetics that appear natural and look great.
The benefits of semi permanent make up
Semi permanent make-up is growing in popularity in both men and women who want to enhance their natural beauty and look polished without having to regularly apply make-up. It saves you time by eliminating the need to apply makeup every morning, you can wake up every morning looking fresh faced and have that “get out of bed make up” look.
It is also a great solution for sports men and women, as there is no smudging after swimming, raining, or after working out at the gym. It is also beneficial for those with disabilities such as neurological weakness or tremors, who may find it difficult to apply makeup evenly every day. Semi permanent eyebrow make up can boost confidence in people with medical conditions such as alopecia, or patients undergoing chemotherapy. Finally it can be used in people with scarring of the lip line or eyebrow to reduce the appearance of the scar.
What happens during the procedure?
Rachel will evaluate the most suitable pigments for you, taking into consideration your skin tone and personality. She will create the desired shape using a conventional make-up pencil so you can see the intended result. Once the shape, design and colour have all been agreed upon and photographed, the pigment will be carefully implanted into the skin.
Depending upon the size of the area, the procedure itself will take about an hour and a half; and a complimentary retouch procedure is required 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment.
How long does it last?
Cosmetic tattooing sits somewhere in-between semi-permanent and permanent; as over the years the colour will fade. The longevity is dependent upon certain factors, but you can expect your permanent make-up to last 2 – 7 years, the average is 3 years. Because the colour will gradually fade, a retouch treatment is recommended every 12 – 18 months to keep your make-up looking as good as new.
Does it hurt?
It’s no more painful than having your eyebrows tweezed. A topical anaesthetic cream will be used to numb the area before the procedure.
What is the recovery time?
You can carry on with your day as normal immediately after treatment. There may be some swelling and redness but this generally subsides within 24 to 48 hours. As the skin heals, the treated area will form a protective crust over the forthcoming days and the final healed result of the treatment will be about 30-40% lighter than the immediate result.
A minimum of 4-6 weeks rest between treatments is required to ensure the skin is fully healed, both on the surface and below.
Semi Permanent Eyebrow Make Up
Fuller, more defined eyebrows have exploded into the beauty industry over the past few years. Magazines devote pages to achieving bigger brows; and the beauty industry is awash with products to add definition, thickness and length, Some may call this the ‘Cara Delevingne’ effect – but looking after your eyebrows isn’t a fad that will eventually go out of fashion, in fact, thicker, well-groomed brows can drastically transform your face. They frame the face, emphasise the eyes, and can easily give you a more youthful appearance; while thinner, over-tweezed brows can actually add years.

Rachel assesses each client’s facial structure and skin tone tailor a perfectly defined and shaped eyebrow.

Many practitioners offer this treatment but few have mastered it as Rachel has. Following the direction of your hair growth allows the simulated hairs to sit in harmony with your existing brow. These hairs can be densely applied and compact for a neater brow, or spread slightly further apart for a sparse, feathery less defined effect. You can also achieve ultimate depth with blended hair-strokes to merge your existing brows with the applied pigment perfectly.
This treatment can be extremely beneficial for people with reduced or patchy hair growth on the eyebrow, including sufferers of alopecia and chemotherapy patients.

Semi Permanent Eyeliner Make Up
Using make-up to define the eye-line is a great way to bring out the eyes, change the appearance of the eye shape, achieve a more youthful appearance and make lashes look fuller and thicker.
By adding definition to the eyes, they can appear larger, more striking, and younger!
The Benefits Of Semi Permanent Eye Make Up
There are so many products on the beauty market that promise long-lasting or ‘24hr’ results. The reality is nothing can stop conventional make-up running or smudging. For those who use eyeliner on a daily basis, semi permanent cosmetics are the perfect solution for long-lasting results. They can be used to define the eye line; by applying pigment along the lash line on the upper and lower lids.
Semi permanent eyeliner is ideal if you sometimes struggle to apply eyeliner; those of us with poor eyesight can sometimes find it difficult to aim the pencil in the right place, and some will find that no matter how expensive their brand of make-up, their eyeliner smudges too soon after application. Athletes and swimmers will also benefit from this treatment, as well as those with asymmetrical or small eyes who are looking to enhance the beauty of their natural shape. Permanent eyeliner is the answer!
How you apply your eyeliner is an individual choice, and will be discussed in order to achieve a shape that you are happy with. The outcome of the treatment is a beautiful but natural look that will emphasize the shape, size and colour of your eyes.
