Semi-Permanent Makeup

Wake up ready! Imagine not having to spend time on your makeup every morning, but still walk out the house feeling confident and looking your best. Semi-Permanent Make-Up perfects your look and liberates you from the time-consuming daily chore of applying make-up. How good it feels to have professional make-up on every day, with no hassle.

Fine-tuning eyebrows and eyeliner can be stressful if you have shaky hands or poor eyesight. As you age, the hairs become thinner and more sparse and you don’t always have the means to apply it properly yourself. Remove the worry of smudged eyeliner, wonky brows, or having to reapply your lipstick throughout the day at Rae Denman Semi-Permanent Make-up.

Semi-Permanent Make-up can last up to 5 years, but if you want it to remain at its finest, a top-up every 12 months is recommended.

Semi-Permanent Make-up, also known as Micropigmentation and Cosmetic tattooing uses a gentle machine to implant pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. It is a safe, effective way of only having to retouch your makeup every year!

EYEBROWS: Over-plucked, Sparse or a Re-shape and Lift

Add symmetry, definition and neatness. Whether you require natural hair strokes, a soft powdered look or a mixture of both, the shape comes first. Time will be taken using the natural bone structure of your features, to create and define your brows for a truly bespoke and enhanced look.

A millimetre here or there makes such a difference and my artistic experience of 20 years enables me to fully see what many may miss. The arch of the brow, the medial starting point and the finishing tail is so important and needs to be positioned precisely. If executed with precision all this can give you a natural uplift, broaden or slim the face shape, and visually revive tired eyes.

EYES: Liner and Lash Enhancement


We will discuss whether you want a natural lash line so your lashes look thicker, your eyes larger with more definition without looking ‘made up’ or, if you want a slightly stronger outline. Precision is crucial with eyeliner, as to whether it opens up the eyes or closes them.  I am meticulous in finding the correct stopping point for true enhancement.

LIPS: Correcting or Defining the lip-line, Adding Symmetry and Colour

D3-4-Lips D1-2-Lips

This is an excellent way of subtly replacing lost pigment especially to the outer border of the lips where it most commonly fades as we age. Your lips will look fuller and shapelier. The procedure can help reduce lipstick bleed, ensuring that you have perfect lips at all times.

Each of these procedures are a 3-step process; consultation, initial treatment and retouch.


Firstly, you will need to fill in a medical history form and then we will discuss at length your requirements. I will perform a quick patch test and then we will go through colours together, finding the correct tone to enhance your skin tone and eye colour.

Initial Treatment

This is when the ‘drawing on’ process starts. This is the most important part and we can fine-tune as many times as you want, until you are fully happy with the look. We will review the colour, and then it’s time for your treatment. Medical Tattooing (Permanent Make-up) is the process of implanting pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. I use a medically certified machine and hand-piece that makes a gentle humming noise. You will be laid down on a couch, and made as comfortable as possible.

After a lip treatment, your lips are likely to be swollen, so I advise against making social plans for 48hrs afterwards.


A Retouch is essential between 4-12 weeks after your initial treatment. This enables the fine tuning of colour density and making sure the pigments are retained uniformly.
