The entire concept of semi-permanent and permanent makeup is based around the fact that we can enhance our natural beauty and our best features using easy, pain-free methods for long-lasting results.
Celebrities are probably more than familiar than many of us with just how much makeup can help us look and feel fantastic and boost our confidence.
Who wants to be papped while running errands with no makeup on and end up on the front page of a trashy magazine, after all?
Permanent options can also be a great money saver, helping to save the precious pennies we spend on over-the-counter cosmetics by investing in more reliable, long-term choices.
We’ve brought together some of the most beautiful, well-groomed women in the celebrity world who also happen to be devotees of permanent cosmetics, specifically eyebrow treatments.
Taking inspiration from some of the greatest beauty icons of our time, these ladies show just how you can enhance your own appearance with a little help from some permanent makeup.
Permanent eyebrows are one of the most popular treatments for both A-listers and us non-celebrity folk.
Eyebrows are one of the most important facial features, enhancing our best bits and adding shape, definition and symmetry to the face. Eyebrows with a defined shape and arch will frame your face beautifully – it’s no wonder that celebrities are loyal followers to the trend.
Actress Megan Fox boasts a pair of strong, powerful brows that are among the shape most frequently requested by my clients and across the wider makeup sphere.
They are totally symmetrical with a neat, strong and natural arch that enhances the colour and shape of her eyes, and the shape of her face as a whole.
Her brows are a great example of how shape can be used to define expression and mood. This is a real statement look, which makes for a beautiful impact.
Everyone’s favourite reality star, Kim Kardashian, is also a lover of permanent brows. She goes for a thick, sculpted look with her brows, adding radiance, lifting her face and enhancing her incredible bone structure.
Her brows are also fairly angular, which is a look that works for many individuals who wish to enhance their eyes. While the brows are strong, they fit with her strong features for a subtle and totally polished look.
The full brow is currently very fashionable but I always consult individually with clients to ensure that the look they wish to go for will suit their particular features.
While many of my clients might wish to emulate Kim K’s brows, these will only work for those with a defined bone structure and very symmetrical face, as otherwise it may look artificial, so I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone.
On the other side of the reality TV pond, The Only Way is Essex star Lucy Mecklenburgh is also a fan of the permanent brow.
Lucy has opted for the hairstroke brow technique, which I choose for my clients who wish to convey a natural, understated look.
This technique gives the image of a fuller brow and can help to enhance or tone down particular features and create the illusion of, for example, a narrower nose or draw attention away from a sharp jaw.

Nicole Scherzinger, Eva Mendes and Rihanna are more A-list beauties who have plumped for permanent brows.
Rihanna shows off a less dramatic arch with a medium-sized curve that creates a toned down version of the statement look and is another popular choice for many clients.
Her brows also show how permanent options can enhance shape and structure and bring back the illusion of hair lost through illness or by a bad tweezing job.
Our chosen celebrities demonstrate the different ways that we can experiment with permanent makeup to enhance our natural features.
