Masking up is a vital part of protecting yourself and others during an ongoing global health crisis, but it can also cramp your cosmetics style. This is especially true when it comes to lip color. When even the strongest and most-hyped lip stains or budge-proof products still end up on your mask or smeared spectacularly, how do you pandemic-proof your makeup routine? The answer may be easier and more straightforward than you think: semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing.
Why You Should Consider Semi-Permanent Makeup During the COVID Crisis
COVID-19 has upended so much of daily life, in enormous ways and little ones alike. Covering the lower half of your face gives you a great opportunity to play up your eyes, there’s no doubt about it. But when you sit down to grab socially-distant drinks or dinner and drop the mask, you’re left with either a totally bare pout or smudged, smeared and fading lip color.
Semi-permanent lip color gives you the best of both worlds: the no-makeup freedom of slapping on a mask and heading out the door, and flawless lips without endless touch-ups throughout the day.
The Perks of Permanent Lipstick
While “permanent makeup” and cosmetic tattooing are used interchangeably, the truth is that cosmetic tattooing is a long-term commitment but not a permanent one. Cosmetic tattooing pioneers did, in earlier days, use the same bright and permanent inks favored by body tattooists. Results were often too garish and unnatural-looking and faded unevenly over time; but the industry has evolved dramatically since then.
Now, high-end semi-permanent cosmetics professionals use pigments with a more natural look that fades more evenly over years, not hours. This means you’re free to whip off your mask at your table without worries about the state of your lower-face makeup; but that’s not the only perk. The application process also stimulates collagen production, leaving your lips with a fuller appearance, too.
Our stations are meticulously sanitized before and after each procedure, with single-use application kits completely discarded upon completion. Worried about the pain factor? No need; we never want anxiety about pain to keep clients from revolutionizing their grooming routine. We use a topical anesthetic to prevent discomfort.
