What is permanent makeup for men?

Guyliner, man-scara and more… yes, guys wear and enjoy makeup too. From a little tinted balm to full on lashes, there is no reason why men can't also enjoy the benefits of permanent or semi-permanent makeup. It doesn't have to look feminine! There is no reason why men too can't look and feel their best.

Lip pigment colour correction or lip blush. Semi-permanent makeup for lips is ideal if your lips have a darker, bluish hue, or are devoid of natural pigment. Kseniia can choose a pigment colour that looks completely natural and use this to help give the appearance of fuller lips, correct any imbalance of the lips or add a touch of definition. This is where the importance of choosing a skilled artist really comes to the fore, to ensure you have a completely natural and effortless result, without any harsh lines or bright pigments (unless, of course, that is the result you are after). This is becoming one of the most popular permanent makeup treatments for men.

Eyebrow correction, using men's microblading – this is great for a completely natural way to fill in sparse brows and to add definition to the face.

Lash liner – using tiny dots of pigment, applied between the eyelashes, a very natural effect can be achieved, that can help eyes to look more defined and give the appearance of more dense eyelashes.
