Semi-permanent make-up has quickly become one of the most popular beauty treatments, allowing clients to wake up feeling themselves and ready for the day ahead without spending hours in front of the mirror. There are multiple different forms of semi-permanent make-up in Milton Keynes, such as eyebrows, lips and eyeliner, all of which can give you that little bit of added confidence. However, one of the most common questions we get asked is “does semi-permanent make-up fade?”, so we thought we would give you some further guidance on this subject before heading in for treatments.
Answer To: Does Semi-Permanent Make-Up Fade?
In simple terms, yes, semi-permanent make-up will eventually fade, but will never disappear completely. While it may not be fully permanent, it can still offer you flawless make-up every day and enhance your natural features. To help you consider semi-permanent make-up this answer will cover:
- How Long Does It Last?
- Benefits Of Semi-Permanent Make-Up
- How To Make Semi-Permanent Make-Up Last Longer
- Touch Up Appointments
Generally semi-permanent make-up will last around 12-24 months; however, how long the make-up lasts will depend on a few factors, such as having it done professionally and taking care of your skin immediately after the treatment and thereafter. It is highly recommended that you have any beauty treatments completed by a professional for multiple reasons, and of course, the most important being your safety. When enlisting the help of a professional, you can ensure that sterile, safe and high-quality equipment and products are used throughout the treatment, which will inevitably provide the perfect finish and minimise any risks associated with your treatment. Furthermore, the shape and finish of your make-up will look stunning and just how you imagined it through meticulous measuring and amending before applying the make-up, rather than blocked and uneven.
The best advice that we can give you is to research as much as possible into semi-permanent make-up before having treatments completed, as this can give you peace of mind that you have chosen the right clinic and treatment for you. This will ensure your make-up lasts considerably longer, as well as provide reassurance that your face is in safe hands. Pairing professional practices with the right aftercare products and methods, your make-up should last you more towards the 24 months.

There are an abundance of benefits to having semi-permanent make-up, and it is something that you should strongly consider to ensure that you make the right decisions for you. Again, we would always recommend taking a closer look into the pros and cons of each treatment before booking in for an appointment, but here are the main benefits to semi-permanent make-up:
- The make-up can help to frame or enhance natural features
- Can instantly give you more confidence
- Reduces time spent applying make-up in the morning
- Lasts a fairly long time
- Can save you money in the long run as you no longer need to buy as much make-up
- Doesn’t smudge when playing sports or swimming
- Can protect your skin as you no longer use products to wipe away make-up
As we all know, taking care of our skin can have lasting impacts, and caring for your semi-permanent make-up can provide similar results. Most of the aftercare will take place immediately after the treatment, so it is important to ensure that you have all the necessary information and supplies to lend you a helping hand. One of the best ways to maintain your new look, is to make sure that you DO NOT pick scabs caused by the treatment. As tempting as it may be, picking scabs can result in patches on the make-up being removed, and in worse case scenarios where the scabbing is more severe, can lead to scarring. Other aftercare tips include:
- Applying a cold compress to the treated area if swollen
- Avoid exposure to the sun
- Avoid getting the treated area wet while it is healing
- Avoid heavy exercise for a week
- As the area heals, sleep on a clean pillow to minimise infection
- Always cream your face in the morning and evening once the treated area has healed

As semi-permanent make-up doesn’t last forever, you will need to make sure that you book in for a top-up appointment every now and then. It is recommended that you return to the same clinic as before if you were pleased with the care and service. The reason for this is because the beauty technician will have an idea of how you like your make-up, giving you further reassurance that the outcome will be how you envisioned.
Appointments are usually required as the colour of the make-up begins to fade, so when you see the colour slightly fading, then we would recommend booking in for a top-up in a few months time. While it does mean that you will need to pay for the treatment every year or so, it will be considerably cheaper than constantly purchasing an eyebrow pencil, for example, as well as saving you time in your morning routine.
