Lazy Ladies Listen Up: 5 Semi-Permanent Makeup Techniques That Actually Exist

What if we told you it’s possible to have eyebrows on fleek, perfectly lined eyes, and tinted lips 24/7? 

Thanks to the amazing advancements in the professional cosmetic industry, you can now wake up, skip your tedious makeup routine, and still look like you’ve touched up your face. 

Too lazy to do your makeup every morning? We round up 5 of the most common semi-permanent makeup methods you may check out. 

1. Eyebrow Shaping and Filling Methods

Gone are the days when tattooing eyebrows mean you’ll have an unflattering solid line that could fade out into terrible colors. Today, you can find other forms of eyebrow shaping and filling methods that look much more natural. Next to eyebrow tinting, here are two of the sought-after methods that transform your brows:

  • Microblading. If you have sparse brows or are suffering from hair loss, you’ll love microblading, a semi-permanent eyebrow filling method. It’s done with a cluster of needles with a blade-like shape, which creates a feathered eyebrow look. 
  • Ombre Powder Fill. Another way is to have your brows done in a powder style that looks like soft makeup. It’s also possible to achieve an “ombre” effect with three different shades of ink.

Eyebrow shaping and filling can be tricky – mess it up and it’ll dramatically transform your look. That’s why some folks with not-so-perfect arches are willing to pay for these amazing treatments. It lasts for one to three years depending on your lifestyle and skin type.

2. Eyelash extensions

Everybody loves to have selfie-ready lashes. Having a pair of full, long, and dark lashes, however, isn’t a breeze. You have to take the time curling them, coating them with mascara, and even paste false eyelashes on top of them. You also should refrain from crying and rubbing your eyes to prevent them from smudging. 

That’s why eyelash extensions can be quite a holy grail for some beauty enthusiasts who hate wasting time putting on loads of mascara and falsies. 

Eyelash extensions these days are super customizable: you can pick your desired length and thickness. You can go for lightweight, natural-looking mink eyelashes or go dramatic with fuller eyelash extensions. Lash technicians apply semi-permanent lashes on top of your natural lashes with special glue. With proper care, they can last for six to eight weeks till they naturally fall out. 

3. Tattooed Eyeliner

Using eyeliner is one of the best makeup tricks for making your eyes look bigger and more refreshed. However, it’s a bit tricky to draw perfect, subtle lines over the lids every single time. It’s a good thing semi-permanent eyeliner exists.

Do you like thinner and more natural-looking lines just to enhance the lash line? Or would you love to have a dramatic cat-eye or faded smoky effect? A professional permanent makeup artist can create any eyeliner effect you’d love to have. 

Getting tattooed around the eyes sounds scary, we know, but it’s actually very fast and safe. 

4. Permanent Eyeshadow

Some cosmetic tattoo experts may offer semi-permanent eyeshadow, a treatment where your lids are tattooed with a single color to help add depth to your eyes. It’s not a very popular permanent makeup procedure, but it’s worth checking out. 

While nothing beats great eyeshadow application skills, a permanent light taupe shade on your upper lids does make a difference if you’re always running late. 

5. Permanent Lip Color

Have you experienced being asked if you’re sick just because you have pale, dry lips? While you can easily glide your favorite lippies, it’s a hassle to reapply after every meal. 

Enter lip tinting, a cosmetic procedure you didn’t know you needed. Lip tinting treatments can make your lips appear fuller, healthier, and more evenly colored. They can also repair an asymmetrical lip line. 

The artist uses a natural-looking shade like pink, peach, or raspberry, depending on your lip’s natural color, for a subtle, plumped effect. Think “my lips but better.” They fill the outer edge of the lip line. You can even get a full lipstick tattoo in any shade, including red. It lasts up to two years without any retouching.
