Lighting, and applying makeup…
How was the trip? It was cold! Below zero often but the road up to Scotland, Sterling and the Highlands was excellent and made things easy. The whole place is just steeped in history, you can just hear the pipes on Rannoch Moors! An unforgettable experience.
Everywhere we went I was intrigued with the light. On a practical level – not easy for any woman any age to apply makeup. Hotels were the most obvious places I noticed where good light is lacking, in spite of great bathrooms! Hardly a problem with semi-permanent makeup when done well though. You may always feel confident knowing everything is in place and you just look naturally great.
Cosmetic tattoo is such an advantage whilst travelling. When you are expected to be out the door and to the lounge for breakfast by 7am, the last thing you want to be doing is messing with makeup. Remember too, I was with my partner an ever impatient and enthusiastic male! I was constantly thankful for the miraculous sweep of blush, and slick of lipstick (provided there was another moment). Semi- permanent makeup does give you that edge every time.
A point. Extremes of weather you will see your tattooed makeup (on lips) change colour as your skin changes. You may want to add a warmer or cooler slick of gloss or lipstick. However, your tattoo makeup is always there especially when you need it regardless. We can also take it for granted when we are busy. It can still be a surprise when someone says how nice your brows or lips are.
London was a very quick visit but G took me about places I hadn’t seen the last times. You’d be hard pressed to find a typical looking Brit in London now. There seems to be a lot of change in these cobble stoned inner city streets now and as usual, lots of interest with the ancient and fashionably new.
We spent two or three hours at Kenwood House alone at Hampstead Heath. It was great because we found a place to park nearby (remember it was freeeezing)and the grounds were like an old world painting in itself. There are so many exhibitions and galleries just in London and loads of parks to hang out, but I was soaware one needs someone who knows the area. Plus our hire car had chatterbox telling us exactly which way was best which was a godsend.
We came back to a heat wave! That’s Australia, where cosmetic tattoo is a necessity.
Next month I’ll talk about balancing features with makeup tattoo, as many of my clients come in with irregular shaped eye, brows and lips that make all the difference in the world when corrected.
Have a fun March, we’re here the weather is cooling at last. I’m always happy to chat and explain procedures, if you would like to phone or email.
