Makeup and beauty care could be overwhelming - unless you know and understand the little things that matter. Whether you are a beginner who struggles with the foundation or someone with experience in applying makeup, here are a few things about beautiful makeup that every woman should know!
1. Never apply foundation or a concealer as a base for your eyelids. It will definitely cause your makeup to crease.
2. Applying foundation with fingers provides sheer coverage and if you want medium to full coverage, use a brush.
3. Even out your skin tone with a bronzer and make sure that you apply it to your neck, face and chest.
4. When applying blush, make sure that you smile and then start applying on the apple of the cheek.
5. Always ensure that you apply your eyebrow pencil to the upper portion of your eyebrows to give them the right lift.
6. The lipstick must not be too defined at the top corner of the lift. Apply lipstick carefully and never miss the edges.
7. For eye shadows, make sure that the base shadow does not have any shimmer. It should also match the lightest skin tone. Apply darker shadows and blend them properly as you go towards the end of the eye lids.
8. Whenever you apply mascara, make sure that you apply it with slow, even strokes. Start at the root of the lash and go towards the tips with slow strokes.’
Finally, make sure that you patiently apply makeup and never hurry through it. After all, doing it all over again is going to be a daunting task!

Permanent makeup is a technique that employs pigmentation of the dermis to produce designs that resemble makeup. It includes enhancing colors of the lips, face or eyelids etc. Permanent makeup is exactly what it says it is – you can go to the gym, dance, run or work all day and in the morning all you makeup is in place!
Here are some of the immediate and long-term results of permanent makeup
Simply put, permanent makeup enhances your features. It renders definition to your eyebrows, eyes and lips. Special colors are used for this purpose. The final look is so much like topically applied cosmetics, that it is difficult to tell. This also depends of the skills of the artist applying the makeup. The design, color value and the amount of pigment used are other major factors. At first, you might feel that the color is too dark, but do not worry, this is only because the color remains in the outermost epidermal layers of the skin. The colors soften over a few days during the healing process. The final result will definitely be a perfectly blended makeup that gives your face a great look all day!
The color lasts for many years – this generally varies from person to person and there is no specific time that can be defined. The beauty span for permanent makeup is influenced by many factors. Some of these factors are environmental – such as exposure to the sun can cause the color to fade. The amount of color used and the color of the pigment used also matter. They define the length of time the permanent makeup looks its best! Obtaining a natural looking finish is very critical. It also requires touchups when the makeup starts fading. Individual lifestyles are also a contributing factor. If you are in the sun for a long time daily such as gardening or swimming, your makeup fades sooner.

Most people think of permanent makeup or tattooed makeup as dark, harsh or unnatural. This is not true! Permanent makeup is a procedure in which pigmented molecules are deposited in the basal layer of the skin using a Micro Needle Dermal Pen. It gives a natural effect to your skin and accentuates the feature you wish to highlight. For example, you could get perfectly shaped lips with permanent makeup and avoid using a lip liner every day. These procedures should not be used as a substitute for topical makeup, but it gives you a good start and enhances your natural looks. Also, you will be completely numb during these procedures and will only feel a slight pinch or pressure!
Here are a few things you can do:
This procedure is very similar to Microblading, Feathering, and HD Brows – however it is done using the Micro Needle Pen rather than a hand tool. The Micro Needle Pen is used to create hair like strokes which mimic your natural hairs’ colour and length.

Permanent Eyebrows are also a good option for those who have sparse eyebrows or have lost facial hair due to chemotherapy etc.
Permanent eyeliner can give you that perfect winged or classic bar liner without spending hours in the mirror. This can be done for both top and bottom eye lids. Using the Micro Needle Pen, pigment is placed into the skin according to the shape and colour of your preference. Your Permanent Makeup artist will work with you to find the perfect shape for your eyes.
