THE NEW SAFER, LESS PAINFUL WAY TO DO SEMI-PERMANENT MAKEUP
For those with over-tweezed eyebrows or very thin eyelashes, the best solution so far has been makeup that is tattooed onto the skin – permanent makeup, it’s called, but the fact is, it lasts a few years and that’s it – and it HURTS. We are not exaggerating. But now we’re learning about a new process called Micro-Art that uses semi-permanent mineral from Naked Cosmetics that can have you waking up with your makeup on – your makeup stays on at the gym. It’s recommended for eyebrows, eyeliner and also to extend the lip area with a lip-like pink color that looks like you’ve got a nice natural Nars lip pencil on. The process isn’t cheap – it’s about a thousand dollars for each area – eyebrow, eyeliner or lip – but it does last three years, so it’s an investment over time. And the treatments only take 60 minutes, which is a lot less than regular tattoo makeup. It says it deposits non-toxic mineral pigments into the desired areas. It was created by Hollywood makeup artist Tanya York – and Micro-Art is completely customizable, allowing for perfectly-matched makeup that can be updated easily to keep your look current. FYI, thicker brows, fuller lashes and thicker pinker lips are all signs of youth. Do this and no need for restylane in the lips. Now it’s in three salons in LA that we know of – Hands On at 243 S Beverly Drive in Bev Hills, Jose Eber at 356 N. Camden in BH, and Ocean Cosmetics Medicine at 2001 Santa Monica Blvd in Santa Monica. Get more info at www.naked-cosmetics.net.
