What is Permanent Make up?
Permanent Makeup also known as Semi Permanent Makeup or Micropigmentation is a non-surgical process that involves investing hypo-allergenic pigments into the upper dermal layer of the skin to deliver a permanent makeup effect by creating natural looking hair stroke eyebrows, or powder brows, add more definition to your eyes with semi-permanent eyeliner, or bringing symmetry, fullness and colour to your lips with Gloss and Go Lips.
Clients should have a top-up treatment every 12 – 18 months to keep perfect results as your colour will fade over time.
Permanent makeup treatments are tailor-made for your individual look and lifestyle. Most clients want to look very natural and groomed with no downtime. This is achieved on the first appointment and adjusted or colour boosted on the second appointment.
Permanent Makeup is a highly specialised treatment and must be delivered by an accredited practitioner. I am trained and certified at Tracie Giles Bespoke Permanent Makeup who is based in Knightsbridge, London.
I chose Tracie Giles Bespoke Permanent Makeup because they provide training with the most technically advanced equipment “indelibliner” and are one of the world’s most sought after Permanent Makeup training providers. Indelibliner trained technicians work with the finest equipment and pigments available on the market worldwide. Tracie and her team feature regularly in press, magazines, blogs and online reviews and work on some of the most well-known faces in the public eye, from politicians and royalty to TV personalities and film stars.

What to expect after your treatment?
Immediately after your treatment, the skin around the treated area may be slightly pink. However, this will disappear in a couple of hours. With the lip area some swelling may occur but will subside within 24-48 hours. You will use the Tracie Giles healing balm that will be provided to you for the next 7 days.
Your colour will be darker during the first few days but they will start to fade thereafter. Colour will fade up to 50% after your first treatment. This is perfectly normal and you should expect this to happen.
This is because as the area is healing, some parts may not ‘hold’ as well as others and you may have a few patches that need more colour. This is completely normal and everyone heals differently. Whatever the case, I advise you always come back for your complimentary retouch after 4-6 weeks to perfect your desired look.
