Eliminate the Hassle
In today’s fast-paced world, more people are finding that it is inconvenient and time consuming to constantly apply makeup everyday. It becomes a hassle, and many people are turning to semi permanent and permanent makeup options to cut down on the hassle. These options still accent the parts of the face that one wishes to be accented, but without having to resort to the daily grind of application and then removal at the end of the day.
Semi permanent makeup consists of makeup options or replacements that do not last permanently. They may last for a few months, but ultimately the effects fade and the solution needs to be reapplied. Most semi permanent makeup solutions have to do with the eyelashes. Semi permanent eyelash extensions or having eyelash perming or dyeing done are the different types of solutions meant to replace the need for mascara. The daily wear of mascara is to thicken and lengthen the eyelashes, as well as have them retain some curl. An eyelash extension procedure can help with all of these goals by placing synthetic lashes on top of the natural lashes, creating more volume in the lashes. Eyelash perming uses special solutions to curl the lashes back, creating the illusion of thickness. Eyelash dyeing, though discouraged by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is also popular as it adds color to the lashes and makes them appear bolder.
Permanent makeup solutions include permanent eyelash implants, but it is most known for the eyelid color and lip color. Permanent eyelash implants make use of hair from other parts of the body to fill in the natural lashes and create more volume and thickness. However, other permanent makeup solutions that use eye and lip color are done by a process called micropigmentation. Micropigmentation is really a form of tattooing. Permanent makeup is basically tattoos that follow the contours of the face and create lasting accents through color. Though the eyes and the lips are the most popular places for permanent makeup to be applied, it is also possible to have rouge tattooed onto your cheeks.

When deciding whether to use semi permanent or permanent makeup solutions, it is important to weigh the risks. For most semi permanent solutions, the effects fade and wear out, and it is possible to try something different or recover to your natural state (except in some cases of eyelash dyeing, where blindness may result). Reversing the effects of micropigmentation is a little more challenging. While it is possible to remove tattooed makeup, the process can be difficult and painful. And one must keep in mind that styles change, as do the contours of the face, causing the permanent makeup to look out of place.
No matter whether you choose semi permanent eyelash options or more permanent tattooing, the fact of the matter is that technology has allowed the beauty industry to move forward with time saving devices that allow us to look better without trying as hard as people did in the past.
