Permanent cosmetic makeup procedures, also referred to as cosmetic tattooing or medical tattooing, can make a whale of a difference to the way recovered cancer patients feel about themselves. Coronation Street actress Sally Whitaker recently disclosed to Hello! Magazine how shocked she was at the way chemotherapy changed her looks. She said: “It really undermined my self-confidence. So having the eyebrow procedure really made a big difference to how I was feeling – it gave my psychological well being a real boost.” Sally approached Karen Bett, a medical tattooing expert, to get her eyebrows permanently done. She admits that she is now “addicted” to cosmetic makeup procedures and wants to have permanent eyeliner too.
However, not all women seeking cosmetic tattooing are recovering cancer patients; their goals vary from getting fuller lips to wanting to get rid of unsightly scars. Springfield-based Kim Housley, proprietor of ColorDerm cosmetic clinic, says that permanent cosmetic makeup can be as dramatic or soft as temporary makeup. Housley, who possesses an Illinois Department of Public Health license and a Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professional certificate, says that each cosmetic makeup procedure is preceded by a consultation, during which the cosmetic surgeon tries to pinpoint the client’s goals. She says that this is essential not only to help the client achieve her goals, but also because permanent cosmetic makeup should look good on its own, without requiring the assistance of temporary makeup. For instance, if the temporary makeup comes off for some reasons, the permanent makeup should continue to look great.
Cosmetic makeup procedures are immensely popular among women of all age groupsa”from 20 to 85. According to Housely, 60 percent of her clients want eyebrow procedures. The others want to correct or hide flaws, get a feature they do not have, or want to remove scars.

One of Houseley’s clients Kolleen Mendenhall says that she was never satisfied with her light eyebrows, which became lighter and lighter as she aged. She decided to try permanent cosmetic makeup and was amazed with the results. Mendenhall, who has renewed the treatment twice, says: “It didn’t hurt or I wouldn’t go back no matter how good it looked. It’s just made such a difference in the way I look and fee.”
Clients also turn to permanent cosmetic makeup to hide their scars with natural skin colours. Cancer-recovered patients also seek cosmetic tattooing to recreate lost nipples or get permanent eyeliners to make up for lost eyelashes. Cosmetic tattooing transforms women in a big way.
Cosmetic makeup procedures are painless and do not take long. For instance, medical tattooing experts can do lower-lid eyeliner in 45 minutes and full face makeup procedures, which include lip colour, lip liner, eyeliner and eyebrows, in two hours. The prices depend on what the patient wants and can be anywhere between 0 and 0. The longevity of the treatment depends on a wide range of factors and many clients will have to return to get their cosmetic makeup procedure renewed.
QUESTION: fuller lips naturally- what to do or wear? So I have slightly full lips but I want them a bit bigger… How can I do that WITHOUT surgery? Any really good lip glosses out there that are at least semi-permanent? I don’t want to be wearing gobs of gloss all the time as that just isn’t my style, haha.
ANSWER:Make Your Lips Look Bigger You can have the full, kissable lips you’ve always wanted. It’s as easy as putting on your makeup. In fact it’s all about makeup. A few tricks of gloss and pencil, and walla !!! that plump, pouty look is all yours.
Gather together some light reflecting concealer, a lip pencil, clear lip gloss and sparkle lip gloss.
Begin by applying the light reflecting concealor around the outside of your lip line. Blend it in with your finger. Reflecting the light will create shading, making your lips look bigger.
Next use your lip pencil to line your lips. Since you have already applied the concealer you can go just outside your lip line with the pencil. Use the pencil to fill in your lips, creating a solid base.
Use a lip brush to apply clear lip gloss. If you prefer colored gloss or even lipstick that’s fine too.
Finally dab some of the sparkle gloss on the center of your bottom lip. This focuses the light giving the appearance of fullness. You can dab a bit of the sparkle just above the center of your top lip in the “cupids bow” too.
TIP – Plump your lips naturally with cinnamon leaf oil. Commercial plumpers are expensive and unnecessary. Most topical plumpers are mild irritants that work by causing the lips to swell slightly. You can get the same effect from cinnamon leaf oil. Apply a small amount to the corner of your lip first as it may sting. Once you’re sure the sting isn’t too much for you go ahead and apply the oil lightly to both lips.
