Imagine waking up every morning already made up and ready to go. You'd save time in the bathroom each day and you'd save money on expensive make-up and cosmetics.
Cosmetic tattooing provides professionally applied make-up that won't run, smudge or wash off. You don't have to do it in the morning and you won't have to take it off at night. Wake up every day looking fresh and fabulous. Here are some cosmetic tattooing basics to get you started.
What is cosmetic tattooing for?
Cosmetic tattooing can enhance, correct or provide more definition to the shape of eyebrows, the eye line and of course the lips. Permanent cosmetic tattoos can add instant fullness to thin lips, provide you with beautifully defined eye liner all year round and lipstick that won't wear off as the day progresses. It can also fix uneven or sparse eyebrows. Eyebrow tattooing is the most popular cosmetic tattooing Perth clients receive.
Your make-up tattoos last between 3 and 5 years with recommended touch ups at your cosmetic studio. Due to the nature of their function, lips usually fade quicker than eyebrows or eyeliner as you're using them more.
How do I get natural looking result?
Historically, cosmetic tattooing didn't have the best reputation as the pigments used weren't ideal for matching skin tone and results were heavy and overdone. In recent years, cosmetic tattooing products and procedures have improved significantly making it popular cosmetic procedure throughout Perth and Australia.
Ensure you go to a professional cosmetic clinic for cosmetic tattooing. With make-up tattoos being permanent, it's important it's done correctly.
When it comes to cosmetic eyebrow tattoos there are two methods that can be used to achieve the result you're after - feathering / hairstroke technique or the powder fill method.
The feathering method generally has more natural look as it mimics the hairs of your existing brows. As the name suggests, small hairlike lines are tattooed just beneath the skin to provide beautiful thick and natural looking brows, filling the gaps between your eyebrow hairs.
The powder fill technique is the more traditional eyebrow tattoo method and appears more solid and structured.
The feathering method does require touch ups more often than the powder fill as the pigment isn't as deep in skin. For mature clients, it is recommended the powder fill method be used as older skin texture does not hold the strokes of the feathering as well as younger skin does and therefore the results won't last as long as predicted.
