Semi Permanent Makeup Training Kent : What does a Semi Permanent Makeup Artist Do?
Semi Permanent Makeup is the collective name we give to all areas of Cosmetic Tattooing. The most common areas treated with semi permanent makeup are the face, but training in semi permanent makeup can expand into some other really interesting areas too.
Eyeliner and Lash Enhancement
These are really popular options for those who wear eyeliner everyday and want a smudge proof, run proof, gym proof solution to applying eyeliner everyday. Lash enhancements are a great option for those who want to make sparse eyelashes look thicker.
Microblading is one of the most requested beauty treatments to date. This technique is most commonly applied to the eyebrows and involves using a manual hand held pen like tool to etch little lines into the brows to simulate hairs.
Hair Stroke Eyebrows
Hair Stroke Eyebrows simulate hairs in the eyebrows to fill gaps in sparse brows or recreate what may have been lost due to chemotherapy or other forms of Alopecia.
Powder/Ombré Eyebrows mimic the look of traditional cosmetics such as brow pencils, pomades or powders and are a great choice for almost any client.
Lip Liner, Lip Blush and Full Lip Tattooing
Lip tattooing is a great way to restore a fading lip line, give the illusion of volume with blushing or a full lip tint using the full lip technique. Lip tattooing can also be used to correct a cleft lip after restorative surgery.
Scalp Micropigmentation can be used to camouflage hair loss in men and women. Density techniques can give the illusion of fuller hair at the roots and full scalp techniques can be used to give the head a “shaved” look for those suffering with male pattern baldness.
Areola & 3D Nipple Tattooing
Medical tattooing is a speciality and those who wish to train in it need to be prepared to dedicate the time and practise into perfecting their skills. These techniques are used to restore areola and nipples for post mastectomy patients who have lost one or both of their breasts to breast cancer. Male to female transgender patients may also opt to have areola enlargement as part of their gender reassignment. Patients can be female or male.
Scar Camouflage & Skin Needling
Scar camouflage tattooing and skin needling techniques can be used to minimise scars and stretch marks as well as promote the natural production of melanin in scar tissue. Skin needling is often used in the aesthetics industry for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles as well as for medical reasons.

Semi Permanent Makeup Training Kent : What to look for in your trainer.
If you’re serious about Semi Permanent Makeup Training Kent, then you will no doubt be searching for the right trainer for you. Here’s a few things to look out for …
- Credentials. No ifs, ands or butts, a good trainer should be able to show you a certificate proving they are not only qualified as an artist but as an educator too. I hold not only a VTCT Level 3 Award in Education and Training but also a VTCT Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement, A VTCT Level 4 in Micropigmentation and a VTCT Level 4 in Microblading, numerous other Diplomas in Semi Permanent Makeup and Medical Tattooing Training and an award for Highly Commended at the Hair and Beauty Awards.
- Experience. Practice makes (near) perfect, so a trainer who has been around the block a few times has likely tested and perfected their techniques for providing the best training experience. I have performed hundreds of procedures, won an award for my work and have almost 10 years experience as an Artist as well as over 3 years experience as a Trainer.
- Personality. What motivates you? Some people do well with positive reinforcement peppered with cheerleading, while others like a strict training style which forces them to focus and perform. Either way, talk to the trainer and get a feel for their style to see if it jives with what works for you. I like to think my style is very adaptable. As a fully qualified trainer, I myself have been trained to adapt to the students learning style. I’d recommend booking a call to chat with me and see if i’m the kind of trainer you want to work with.
My mission is to pass on my experience and knowledge through my in depth training courses, which are specially designed to be
