permanent makeup for the male
Someone asked me the other day “Do men seek permanent makeup?”.
There is certainly a fast growing trend for males to keep up their appearance nowadays. It’s encouraging as well, as I see men who have had ‘harmony’ given back to their faces through shading and simulated hairs added appropriately. I explained that to the typical Australian male this might seem absurd, but when you see how permanent makeup helps give back what nature and the rigors of life takes away, it lightens the heart.
Often requests are made for repairs to eyebrows, enhancements to eyes, and added colour and line to lips. Always this is done ever so carefully, to bring through the most natural fullness and length to brows and perfect adjustment to the lips.
Natural lash enhancement is especially effective, with specially selected colour placed between the lashes to give definiton to the eye. The colour is soft, again always natural, and the transformation awesome.
Oftentimes the girlfriend or wife of a client will approach me after having her own permanent makeup procedures. This usually follows with the other partner having a free consultation whereby I ascertain whether you are an ideal candidate for tattoo. This is based on general health, medications taken and other factors, and of course whether you truely want the difference personally. Natural vegetable pigments are used as they do not change color, however fade will as always take its course over the months and years. Protecting the good work from sun and abrasive activity to the skin is a factor, and as easy as slipping sunscreen over the face and neck as part of your daily routine.
So, whether through, age, injury, medical misadventure or the sheer awareness of what, even minimal permanent makeup can achieve, men are now enquiring, and requesting and having permanent makeup……and feeling so good.
