In today’s society, it is becoming increasingly popular for men to be taking more pride in their appearance and skincare. Not only that, but they are now wanting to achieve the perfect made-up look, without it looking like they have a full face of makeup on. Gone are the days of washing their faces with a bit of soap and water, enter the days of full cleansing routines.
Thanks to Chanel and Tom Ford, who are just a few of the big brands that have launched male makeup ranges in the last few years, it is now becoming perfectly acceptable for the men in our lives to be wearing makeup.
No man wants to spend hours in front of the mirror filling in their eyebrows, applying foundation, and creating a fuller beard using products you can now buy on the market today.
Enter permanent makeup for men.
Permanent makeup can offer a wide range of treatments and facial treatment is only a part of it. The techniques are evolving daily, meaning there will always be something that is suited to you.
So, what treatments are on offer for men?
Scalp Micropigmentation, also known as SMP, is an increasingly popular treatment for men today. SMP is a life changing hair loss treatment where natural pigments are applied to the scalp, creating the illusion of actual hair follicles.
Microblading isn’t just for women! Men have an incredibly different brow pattern to women, and sometimes a little unruly. You can achieve the perfect masculine brow through PMU, as long as your artist understands the different bone structure in males to ensure your brows will enhance your facial features.
A concept made popular by rockstars in the 00’s. However, today this is an excellent treatment for people with sparse lashes and simply want to add subtle definition to their eyes. Tiny droplets of pigment are implanted between the lashes to create the image of a thicker, more defined lash line.
Facial Micropigmentation (FMP)
Not everyone can achieve a perfectly even beard. Instead of having to use a beard pencil filler every day, a lot of men are now opting for FMP.FMP creates a perfect blend of density, helping you to achieve the appearance of a 5 o’clock shadow. The PMU artist will match your skin tone and hair colour to the correct pigment shade to fill in any balding patches.
It is great to see that makeup is no longer just for women and assigned to just one gender. We all want to look like the best version of ourselves and if choosing permanent make up will help us achieve that, then what does it matter what gender you are.
