    What is Semi Permanent Makeup?

    Semi Permanent Makeup explained

    Semi Permanent Makeup uses a process called micropigmentation to implant pigments into the eyebrows, eyelids and lips to enhance your natural beauty. A handheld device with a needle nib is used to implant pigment into the upper dermal layer of skin at an exact and precise depth to be non-permanent.

    We expertly add pigment to the:

    • Eyebrows – to enhance and define
    • Eyeliner – adding pigment to the top and bottom eyelids that is always smudge-free
    • Eyelash Enhancement – a very subtle fill of colour between the lash roots
    • Lip Line – to define the lip line
    • Lip Blush – we add a delicate wash of colour to the lips
    • Full Lip Colour – We add colours like the look of lipstick.

    Semi permanent makeup treatments usually consist of 2 treatment sessions depending on the area, (3 treatment sessions for some lip procedures). Multiple treatments are required, so the pigment implants correctly ensuring our semi-permanent makeup procedures last for years and not months.

    Semi permanent makeup does not smudge or run and is ideal for women (and men) wanting to look their best regardless of the heat or humidity of Dubai and the Middle East. 

    Procedures in detail

    More definition and symmetry

    The time saved not having to pencil every day is worth the treatment cost alone! 

    Our eyebrow treatments are perfect for anyone who requires emphasis of the brows. If you have no brow hair or sparse brows due to over-plucking, the difference balanced brows can make is fantastic.


    Eyeliner & Eyelash Enhancement – Smudge free and always perfect!

    Eyeliner – smudge-free and always perfect

    Make the most of your eyes with our Semi Permanent Eyeliner.

    Several looks of eyeliner are available from subtle to dramatic. The pigment is applied to the top or bottom lid and can significantly enhance the appearance of the eyes. 

    Eyelash Enhancement

    We call Eyelash Enhancement an introduction to semi permanent makeup. We apply pigment to the tiny gaps between the lash roots creating a solid thin lash line—a very subtle way to emphasise the eyes.


    Lips – Redefine your lip line and colour!

    Lip Line – Improve the shape and colour of your lips.

    Over time the lips lose their shape and definition. We expertly redefine and shape the lips by carefully applying a contoured line sympathetic to your natural lip line. We offer a variety of colours and several looks, from natural to bold.

    Full Lip Colour – For a truly subtle and beautiful cosmetic effect.

    Semi permanent makeup is an excellent way of enhancing the shape and colour of your lips. With the highly skilled application of pigment, lips can look fuller and more shapely. Redefine your lips in only one treatment!

    Lip Blush

    Our Lip Blush semi permanent makeup treatment is ideal if a more subtle colour is required. The process is the same as Lip Colour; however, we apply more subtle pigments using a dusting needle. This technique achieves more of a wash of colour to the lips.


    What you should know

    What you should know about semi permanent makeup procedures

    • Candice Watson performs all treatments. Candice Watson is an International Micropigmentation Specialist with over 30 years of experience.
    • Semi permanent makeup is not painful. Most of our clients report only minor discomfort.
    • We perform a full consultation before any semi permanent makeup treatment.
    • You do not need to take time off work following the procedure. Any swelling or slight pain will disappear within a few hours.
    • The colour intensity will fade up to 40 to 60% after the first treatment, which is one of the reasons why we recommend a top-up.
    • We perform Top-up sessions between 4 and 8 weeks after the initial procedure.
    • Lip procedures take between 3 and 10 days to heal depending on the size of the treatment and your skins natural healing process.
    • For Lips Treatments – Clients who have suffered from cold sores (Herpes virus – Herpes simplex) can experience symptoms of the infection after the treatment to the lips. Anti-herpes medication is available over the counter or on prescription and should be taken before lip treatments as these can help to prevent or minimise such outbreaks.

    Who can benefit?

    Is semi permanent makeup suitable for you?

    With our range of different looks, everyone can benefit from smudge-free semi permanent makeup. Semi permanent is particularly suitable for:

    • Anyone with unsteady hands making applying makeup difficult
    • Anyone short-sighted
    • For people on the go with no time for applying makeup but feel more confident wearing makeup.
    • Anyone who is allergic to makeup (or has a sensitivity to makeup).

    Best Machines and Pigments

    We use professional micropigmentation machines and equipment to implant non-permanent pigment into the epidermis layer (upper layer) of the skin. The pigment depth is critical and directly relates to the amount of time the pigment will stay in the skin – too deep and chances are you will get a permanent tattoo, too shallow and the pigment will only last a few months. 

    The correct micropigmentation systems allow us to adjust the depth on the needle. Implanting pigments at an exact depth into the epidermis allows the pigment to be naturally expelled from the skin over 2 to 3 years hence the term “semi permanent”.

    What our clients say

    I had lip liner and full lip colour with Candice. Now my lips look amazing!




    I did some research, and Candice was the best choice. I had full lip colour, and Candice reshaped my lips too. I’m thrilled with the result.



    Abu Dhabi

    I overplucked my eyebrows when I was younger and as a result, had hardly any eyebrows. I went for the hairstroke technique as I wanted a natural look. I now love my brows, thank you, Candice!




    I’m very new to semi permanent makeup, so Candice recommended Eyelash Enhancement. I’m delighted with the look, and it is very subtle but improves the look of my eyes.
