When you are sick you seek a doctor, when you have a toothache you look for a dentist. In the same way, when you have a problem with how you look, you seek a cosmetic surgeon or more recently, a semi permanent makeup artist. If you are not all too familiar with the treatment, it is exactly how it sounds; semi permanent. Basically, through the help of extremely fine needles, specially formulated pigment will be inserted into the skin. If you are thinking how similar that is to tattooing right now, well you are right. However, with some differences. In much the same way as you would place your trust in a doctor to help with your illness, one places complete trust and faith in their artist. If you are not sure what you are looking for, perhaps this will help.


Where such delicate fields are concerned, one must be extremely attentive to what is going on at all times. The slightest mistake can be costly and startup businesses in particular are in no position to suffer client wrath by way of legal battles. Hence, it is important that they hire artists who display attentive traits. A distracted person will not really be able to concentrate hard enough to give you the perfect eyebrow tattoo Dubai no matter how hard they tried. Everybody feels comfortable with somebody who knows what they are doing and is most importantly committed to the task at hand. So if you are looking out for a good salon, watch for attentiveness their staff.


This is not like wandering into a salon for a haircut only to decide you also want your eyebrows done where you will walk out after 15-30 minutes. Semi permanent makeup treatments takes ages and can last for a couple of hours at least. So it only makes sense that the artist you have is friendly. Can you imagine being stuck for all that time with someone who is brooding, snappy and not at all warm? It would be a complete nightmare. When you speak to them, see if they are open for conversation and whether they are approachable which is good to know in case you have an issue of some sort.


With any job, you can easily pick out the bunch who are in it because they have no other choice and those who are truly dedicated to their work. Career choices can change of course, that is normal. However, when those who are forced to stay in something their heart does not believe in, it becomes hard to do a good job at it. Those who are adamant about pursuing their career path are those who fight for it tooth and nail and put in 100% dedication. You can easily pick out dedication from a crowd, it is that visible. After speaking with your makeup artist for a while, you should be able to pick it up. You can look forward to your treatment for semi permanent makeup in Dubai.

Aside from these, keep your eyes peeled for hygiene and general behaviour. Sometimes you can pick out the most obvious signs when they think they are not under watch. Drop in casually before you book an appointment just to see them at work when they will not be expecting you. After that, take it from there.


If you are somewhat familiar with the concept of tattooing, then it is not too hard to grasp semi permanent makeup. However, there is a thin line between the two which made up of a few differences. Although both of these essentially use the same sort of procedure, i.e. the use of a needle to deposit ink under the skin, the pigments and needles utilised are for one different for tattoos. It is important to remember that neither tattoos nor semi permanent makeup is actually ‘permanent’ in the sense of the word. Whilst they will last quite a while, with time and external factors they begin to fade and deplete looking nothing like they did at the start. This does not mean that one can get away with a mediocre job. After all, at least where semi permanent makeup’s concerned the results are always on display for the world to see. So if at all you might be considering becoming an artist down this field, you should know you need the following.


This one might seem rather obvious, but there are actually some clinics around that think it is completely fine to unleash untrained personnel onto the world with such a delicate responsibility in their hands. Although those that get caught can be prevented from causing any further damage, the victims who have already fallen prey are already in trouble. Hence, you have a moral responsibility to ensure you only deliver the very best and for this you need proper training procedures. Depending on where you live or where you plan on getting your training from, the training you require will change. Make sure you opt for something that is valid in the top regions you see yourself working in in the future such as semi permanent makeup in Dubai for instance.


Not that this is some sort of surgery, but every client will be different and some can stomach things better than others. Some people for example are not very tolerant about sighting blood so they could faint. In such instances you need to be able to at the least administer CPR. Anything could happen, and frankly knowing first aid is useful for you in general. Learning it for a job only strengthens your appeal and many relevant establishments will be looking to hire you which is great especially right after training. When you one day decide to open your own salon, you will find that this skill comes in handy. Some people might have extreme needle phobia which is another situation you would have to deal with so the practice stretches beyond semi permanent makeup alone.


Anybody can attend a course and claim they have learnt all there is to know and assume they are proficient enough to go try out their newfound skills on the world. That is not how things work however. If you want to be taken seriously and build up a reputation for yourself, then you have to get your license. Obtaining your license differs based on where you are. Having said that, for the most part you would need to qualify for the initial set of requirements after which you would need to make an application for your license. Then, a practical exam will be held so you demonstrate the skills you have learnt. Only and only if you pass this examination will you be conferred a license. So you need a solid grounding in all aspects to become a professional artist for semi permanent makeup in Dubai or anywhere else.

Aside from the above, you also should have certain personality traits since they will help you in your job. Patience, willingness to learn and social skills are just some of these. Make sure your qualifications and personality are on par for success.


If there is one thing that has become quite apparent in this progressive world of ours, it is the fact that people are far more ambitious and driven than they have ever been before. That is of course taking into account the sheer number of small businesses that have been cropping up in the recent past. Part of the reason for this is due to the Internet. With social media now dominating our lives and online shopping becoming the new in thing, a collaboration of the two could only mean one thing after all. Hence, everyone is now encouraged in a sense to do something other than their regimented office jobs. Needless to say, the possibilities are endless although for the purpose of this article, we will be looking at what you would have to do to set up a semi permanent makeup clinic. Assuming you have all the required qualifications and training, here are some tips to give you a push.


This might seem like a rather broad tip, but in essence it means where would you practice? Are you looking at using an existing space that you might have as your clinic or would you be renting one out? Do you want to be permanently based or would you prefer to be on the move as a mobile artist? First and foremost you need to work that out. Only then can you decide on where you want to setup camp. Depending on which of these options you go for, your requirements and needs will change accordingly. From lighting to equipment, every little detail matters. Whether people come to you for a simple eyebrow tattoo Dubai or a more complex procedure, you want to be able to deliver your best.


The importance of securing insurance for yourself especially in this field cannot be stressed enough. This part will be quite boring and tedious to say the least but you will have to pay attention. If you leave out one tiny details, you could find yourself in the midst of a lawsuit that will see you lose both your reputation and your business. Perhaps get a trusted lawyer on board to walk you through all the legalities. Make sure your insurance policy covers everything it should. That is not to say anything bad will happen, it is just saying anything can happen and when it does, you need to be prepared for it. Semi permanent makeup is a fairly new, still delicate industry so take no chances.


You have to understand that before you invest all your savings and embark down this road, the cost of running a business of this nature is costly. You see, you cannot get away with it by compromising on the quality of your products. Using cheap pigments and needles could lead to hideous health complications which in turn will haunt you and your company for a long time to come. Hence, you will need to always replace items and ensure your pigments and other necessities are always in great shape. Needless to say, this is quite an expensive trend to maintain so if you do make money remember a bulk of it needs to go to stock the shop. As a whole, make sure semi permanent makeup is what you want to do.
Any business for that matter is no piece of cake. There are plenty of obstacles, hardships and pitfalls some which seem like they are unsolvable. With enough determination and commitment though, you can make anything happen so stick it out and live your dream.

If you have not already heard about this new phenomenon expanding across the world, you are definitely behind times. Semi permanent makeup is the revolutionary new addition to the beauty industry. By cutting down on time used to preen yourself before heading out and eliminating the hassle of balancing your foundation and mascara in the cab, it has gained quite the fan base. Having said that, the results are only successful if you take care of yourself the right way immediately after the treatment. If this is your first time venturing into it, then you could probably find the following useful. These are applicable regardless of the type of treatment you have done, that is to say eyebrows, eyes or lips for instance.


When the flesh opens up due to a wound, it needs to heal obviously. The healing process though can be both long and drawn out or quick as lightning depending on the depth of the wound. Either way, the itchy sensation you feel is the body’s method of coping with the situation. As platelets rush in to cover up the open spot, the skin around the area begins to contract contributing to the itch. One of the worst things you can do is to actually scratch the itch. Where semi permanent makeup is concerned, this will probably drive you up the wall. You will feel as though you want to give your entire face a great scratching session although on the contrary you should be keeping your fingers far away from it. Control the itching. If not, it could lead to scarring and infections.


Seeing as how you probably look like a freshly painted canvas, it is unlikely that you would be in any hurry to meet anybody right now, but in case you get any ideas remember to stay indoors. This is mainly because there is so much dust and dirt outside that can get into the open wounds and cause infections. Furthermore, you could also sweat which in turn can exacerbate the situation. You should be staying as cool as possible with minimal physical exertion. It might be tough to do if you have a full-time job, but this could be a good time to use your accumulated leave. Eyebrows in particular are designed to trap dirt and sweat from falling into the eye so if you have had an eyebrow tattoo Dubai done, then more’s the reason for car.


Just like an itch is a part of having a wound, so is the scabbing. By habit, we are quite used to absent-mindedly picking at it until we force it to fall off. When it comes to scabbing as a part of the healing process of the procedure, this should be avoided at all costs. Let the scabs fall off on their own. If you find it difficult to resist the urge, occupy yourself. Do something that keeps you busy. Whatever you do, keep those fingernails off your face. Our nails trap so much bacteria within them because we use them for practically everything. You would be directly transferring it all to your open wounds which is a disgusting thought. Allow the healing to take place on its own.

Remember that with such delicate procedures, it is critical that you follow instructions to a ‘t’. Do not disregard the above points as far as safety post-semi permanent makeup goes.  


If Hollywood and advertising has taught us anything, it is the fact that impeccable makeup and flawless skin can keep you bouncing between several obligations in a day. Achieving this however, is a whole other ball game. We all know what makeup ends up looking like by about 2 pm, streaky and clogged up with mascara gunk gathered towards the corner of the eye. If your job entails a lot of zooming around, then you definitely know how difficult it can be to look presentable when you are trying to beat the heat and the sweat. Furthermore, it is quite cumbersome to keep transporting your makeup everywhere you go. Many are the foundation explosions that have occurred at the most inconvenient times. Putting all these problems to rest though, is semi permanent makeup. A concept growing in popularity, there are some safety tips to bear in mind.


As human beings, we are extremely vulnerable creatures and by no means invincible. Allergies can take different forms and are triggered sometimes by the most unthinkable things. They are the outcome of genetic disorders, and are often passed down through DNA. Whilst some people have allergies to nuts or pollen, others have more serious conditions. If you or someone you know is planning to get semi permanent makeup done at some point and are prone to allergic reactions, it is highly advisable that you seek a doctor’s guidance first. You must put your health first. Since pigments will be inserted into your skin, it could cause problems especially if you are sensitive in general.


It is incredibly important to ensure that the ink going into your skin is completely safe. Obviously as the client it could be difficult for you to personally check each tube yourself, but you can enquire about it. You will most definitely have an initial consultation and this is your window to ask questions and address any concerns you have. Instead of waltzing into it with minimal preparation, take some time in the days ahead to read up a few articles on the subject. Some inks tend to spread over time because of poor consistency which can ruin your looks. Others are more dependable. What you need to do is find out what is it that makes some better than others and then use that as a base for your questions. Ask the clinic whether their pigments include the high-quality chemicals that minimise complications.


Any open wound for that matter would fester and infect if it is not treated properly or looked after. Whether you are getting an eyebrow tattoo Dubai or just getting your lips lined, fact of the matter is that you are breaking open your skin. You will be given a post-treatment routine to follow as well as a list of dos and donts. Should you neglect to stick to them, you are sure to face a host of issues. You run the risk of contracting infections and unfortunately it becomes hard to treat and messy because you have just had a treatment done. In some cases it can get really bad and painful so avoid the trouble and stick to your healing instructions.
As much as semi permanent makeup is quite popular around the world for its benefits, it can quickly turn disastrous if you are not careful. The above list should hopefully set you straight.


If you have to move houses you would also need to find a new salon amongst others necessities like a dentist, doctor and so forth. There are naturally some qualities you would look for to help you make a solid decision. It is the same when it comes to locking down a reliable semi permanent makeup artist. Seeing as how it is still a budding concept, you would want all the support you can get to ensure you are in safe hands. If you are seriously considering getting it done, you should be visiting some of these clinics in person. To help you identify the right spot, have a browse through this list of traits a competent individual in this field would have.


Whether you are after dental implants, a health checkup or an eyebrow tattoo Dubai, communication is key. In fact, it is how this world operates. Without it, we would not be able to function. Why else do you think it is difficult to communicate with someone who has a different first language? It is of paramount importance that they understand and converse in fluent English (seeing as how it is the universal language) if you want a good job done. How can you let them know what you needs and doubts are if they cannot hold a decent conversation? This is not a case of discrimination, you are merely looking out for your own interests. Keep hunting until you find a place whose staff displays excellent communication skills.


It would be pointless walking into a semi permanent makeup clinic that has been around for five years, but has not progressed since then. The beauty industry’s landscape is one that is always shifting, adapting according to new technologies that are introduced. These technologies look for more efficient ways of manufacturing new products or implementing services. If the makeup artist has no idea what is going on in the industry, it is likely that he or she will not be able to advise you appropriately. You will not be able to reap the best value for money and only receive poor service in return. However, you should also make sure they know what they are talking about and not just rattling off an article they might have read say, a week ago.


With any job, professionalism is something that goes a long way. Here too, it plays a significant role. Is your makeup artist attentive to your concerns? Are they diplomatic in their approach? How do they resolve conflicts of interest? In addition to these you need to also make sure they are always impeccably dressed. They would most probably have a staff uniform provided to wear, but what matters is whether it is clean and pressed. There are many things that contribute to a professional individual in the workplace, and looking for these attributes in the makeup artist is a huge leap forward.

Semi permanent makeup is ‘semi permanent’ which means that you will need to live with your look for at least 2 years to come. By putting in considerable effort into the right makeup artist, you will be able to enjoy this look and not regret it.
