Microblading            The power in Permanent Makeup

Permanent Makeup

Is a cosmetic technique which is in many ways similar to a tattoo (permanent pigmentation of the dermis), producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eyeliner and other permanent enhancing colours to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids.

It is used to mimic the hairs of the  eyebrows, particularly in people who have lost them as a consequence of old age, disease, such as alopecia totalis, chemotherapy, or a genetic disturbance, and to disguise or camouflage  scars and white spots in the skin such as in vitiligo.

It is also used to restore or enhance the breast’s areola, such as after breast surgery for augmentation or mastectomy after cancer.

Permanent makeup results enhance our facial features and add definition  to eyebrows, eyes and lips by the use of coloured pigments, to bring out the best in your already beautiful features.

Results can imitate topically applied cosmetics or can be quite unnoticeable, depending upon the design, colour value and amount of pigment used. We can create soft blush lips or vibrant ones, smudged soft liners or stark bold eye liners, powder fashion brows or block brows.
