For many women, the routine we go though each morning styling
our hair, choosing an outfit, and applying our cosmetics is a ball and chain we
will be attached to for at least the duration of a working career. While
notions of beauty differ from one individual to the next, typically people are
of the opinion that a woman's appearance is not put-together or complete until
makeup is added as the finishing touch. In a world of ever-increasing
responsibilities and ever-decreasing free-time, renowned micro-pigmentation technician and
instructor Pat Shibley-Gauthier is
leading the way in making her fellow females feel beautiful in any situation.
To some people makeup is a fun and colourful way to spruce up an
outfit – to Pat, cosmetic application is an art and a lifestyle. Operating one
of the premier micro-pigmentation instruction centers in the country right in
the GTA's Mississauga, Pat Shibley-Gauthier has spent years perfecting her
craft and lending her expertise while attending international conferences for
upcoming technicians all over the world. This successful businesswoman is set
to become a global brand; creating her own substantial line of products and
colours which are shipped to more than 42 various countries.
Applications of Permanent Makeup
Cosmetic – By far the most common
use for micro-pigmentation, also known as cosmetic tattooing, is fulfilling
ideals of beauty. Application is most common on the face, and is used to
enhance features. Popular treatments include lip liner and colour-fill, as well
eyeliner and brows. For most women these treatments are sought in an effort to
reduce time getting ready in the morning and also to retain a feeling of
fresh-faced beauty at any time of day.
Correction – While magazines would
have us believe everyone is born perfect, most of us are a far cry from the
standard Hollywood definition of attractiveness, instead existing with our own
flaws and variations from one another. For a number of women these differences
can make them feel self-conscious and prevent them from living a full and happy
life. Such cases may include those who are born with discolorations, such as a
lack of pigment on the areola for example, prominent birthmarks which may
require the procedure to diminish their noticeability, or corrective coloring,
may be the case for those with slight skin conditions like mild albinism.
Reconstruction – Although makeup tends to
be far better known for its aesthetic value for improving attractiveness, it
can also serve a very functional purpose for victims of accidents or those
recovering from surgery. Micro-pigmentation can be used as a long-term solution
to masking some surgical scars, hiding discoloration from medical procedures,
and even correcting the aftermath of burns to a limited degree.
As you can see, many people, men as well as women, can greatly benefit from the application of permanent makeup to
improve their quality of life, as well as their overall appearance. When
choosing an technician for work on your face, be sure to consider one of the
many talented students taught by one of the biggest names in the industry.
