SPMU – The Techniques SPMU
The Techniques Lashes
What to ask for: While semi-permanent eyeliner is popular, the latest trend is to have tiny micro-droplets of pigment nestled in between each lash to give the appearance of thick, fluttery lashes. “It creates undetectable definition for your eyes,” says Susie
What to expect: The tattoo machine used is incredibly gentle. Even so, eyes may feel sore afterwards, so don’t do it en route to a party. Like brows, they need to be kept dry for around 7 days
What to ask for: SPMU brows (the catch-all phrase ) is continuously evolving new techniques, such as microblading, hair stroke brows, ombre brows, powder brows and such.
What to expect: Thanks to numbing creams, most people say it’s similar to very light scratching There’s no formal downtime, although it depends from person to person and brows should be kept dry for at 7 days – which is tricky. Don’t panic if they look too dark at first – colour fades as they heal and the results last for about a year.
What to ask for: 90s liner has evolved into full-lip blushes, which is like a subtle lipstick or stain. It also creates a fuller lip, and some opt for this instead of lip filler.
What to expect: Lip blushes get their name thanks to using a dark shade around the lip line blended with a softer shade in the middle with almost no colour in the centre. Expect tenderness afterwards but aftercare is minimal: refrain from touching lips and regularly apply cream as advised by your technician.
