Bespoke Semi-Permanent Makeup as Individual as You Are

Semi permanent makeup gives you the look of professionally applied makeup everyday, with natural-looking results that can be as subtle or as dramatic as you want.

Charmaine Harding has become renowned throughout the SPMU (semi-permanent make-up) industry for her ability to tattoo beautifully natural eyebrows that are indistinguishable from the real thing.

The effect is achieved by hypo-allergenic specialist pigments into the dermal layer of your skin. The results fade gradually over 2-3 years, with a “colour boost” recommended around 12-18 months after the initial application – to maintain a fresh look.

Semi permanent makeup is also available to enhance your eyeliner and give full colour to your lips.

FAQ’s about SPMU

What is Semi Permanent Makeup?

Semi permanent makeup gives you the look of professionally applied makeup everyday, with natural-looking results that can be as subtle or as dramatic as you want.

The effect is achieved by hypo-allergenic specialist pigments into the dermal layer of your skin. The results fade gradually over 2-3 years, with a “colour boost” recommended around 12-18 months after the initial application – to maintain a fresh look.

Why Have Semi Permanent Makeup?

Naturally, everyone wants to look their best at all times, this gives you this everyday! Waking up with perfectly shaped brows, defined eyes and beautiful lips without having to apply makeup, no smudging either.

What if I have specific needs?

You may have specific requirements for semi-permanent makeup such as scars, alopecia, chemotherapy, vitiligo, loss of sight or other health related concerns. Semi-permanent makeup is an extremely beneficial and very successful for these types of medical concerns.

Is Semi Permanent Makeup safe?

We use the highest quality sterile needles, which are disposed of immediately after the treatment is completed. We follow a code of practice that ensures a safe treatment. We choose to work only with top quality pigments that meet European medical standards.

Does it hurt?

We want you to be relaxed during the treatment and in as little discomfort as possible, so we use anaesthetic before and during the treatment.

How long will it take to recover?

Normally the colour will be darker for the first few days. You may experience light to moderate swelling, especially with eyeliner and lip procedures.

After the initial few days, the skin will heal and will begin to gently flake off and the treated area will lighten.

It may be too light for you, so recommend to have  top up around 4-6 weeks after to achieve the best results for you, to refine and perfect.

How long does Semi Permanent Makeup last?

It lasts for many years but we recommend having a colour boost around 12 months after the initial treatment allowing you to maintain a fresh look.

We recommend a colour boost approximately every 1-2 years to maintain the clarity and definition of your Semi Permanent Makeup to keep it looking really fresh.

All treatments are carried out in our luxurious salon in Ashford Kent.

Had a bad experience elsewhere and want to start again with us?

We get lots of clients that have had SPMU procedures done elsewhere in the past that they are no longer happy with and they want to start again with one of our technicians.

We cannot cover up existing work but thanks to the fantastic LI-FT Pigment Lightening procedure we are now able to provide an initial course of sessions in order to remove the existing SPMU to create a blank canvas to work from again.

What is LI-FT and what does it do?

LI-FT is a pigment lightening solution formulated for cosmetic tattoos on the face and for areas of body art to lighten tattoos.

Please note: Tattoo lightening with LI-FT is prohibited on areas below the knee, below the wrist and on the genital areas.

It is also prohibited to be used on people with medical conditions that would adversely affect the healing process without written consent from a physician.

Is LI-FT the same as salt saline removal?

Although the product used is salt saline based it does have other (non-acid) ingredients that assist in the chemical reaction in the skin called Osmosis.
