The first part of any semi-permanent makeup process is a consultation. Arrange a visit to our Canterbury salon during which we will discuss in detail the look you want to achieve and what we would recommend for you. We will also address any questions you may have regarding the process. Once you are happy and we have an idea of the look you are aiming for, we draw the brows, lips or eyeliner on with a makeup pencil. We will then begin the tattoo process when you are completely happy with the look.
A block is as it sounds, a solid application of colour that will mimic the effect of eyebrow pencil. Pigment is packed into the skin to get an even and long lasting result.
Hair stoke is a technique whereby tiny lines are tattooed within the brow boarder to create a fuller looking but natural brow. This technique implants the least amount of pigment so is likely to fade the fastest but gives very natural results.
The powder is somewhere between the two, the technician may use hair strokes to build the foundation of the brow and then softly shade some colour through. this gives a beautifully soft look that is ideal for people who have lost their eyebrows or have very sparse brows.

Whatever your reason semi-permanent lip liner, lip color or blush may be the answer for you. Lip liner is gentle definition to recreate a more defined border to the lip, great for people that are losing the crisp edge that want to just re define that area.
Blush, gives you the crisp border of a lip liner, then color is blended into the lip so there is no visible line.
Full lip color can be very soft and subtle or as dramatic as you require. It can be used to reintroduce color to faded or very pale lips. Any lipstick can still be worn over the top.
Please note: If you have ever suffered with cold sores please make the technician aware at the time of booking as there are things you can do prior to the treatment to prevent an outbreak.
The colour will be very vibrant for the first week. Once the lip sheds the crust that has formed the colour will initially look very pale. The colour will then brighten again over the next 3 weeks however it will generally lose 50% of the initial intensity. A second appointment 4-6 weeks later is essential to complete the treatment.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
