Following 22-year-old Stacey Solomon’s recent admission that she sleeps in a full face of make-up, semi-permanent cosmetic clinic, Specialist make up Services, have revealed research which reports a staggering 79% of British women admit to also regularly going to sleep without removing their make-up.
Stacey admitted: “The first thing I do in the morning is take off my Make-up from the day before. I’m so lazy – I never do it at night. It’s terrible.”
Many women wake up with black smudges on their bed-sheets caused by sleeping in their mascara but this isn’t the worst impact of wearing makeup for such a length of time. The effect on the Skin is dramatic – leaving mascara overnight dries out the lashes and can lead to them thinning and falling out. Sleeping in make-up also clogs the pores, creating a breeding ground for bacteria resulting in break-outs and dry patches.
Despite her bad Skin regime, Stacey believes the amount of water she drinks counteracts her 24-hour makeup. She said: “I drink lots of water so that’s probably the only reason I don’t get spots”
beauty expert at Escentual.com, Louise Reed however explains: “Whilst drinking plenty of water is essential to maintaining a healthy body and skin, simply drinking water will not help to clean your skin deep down from dirt such as make-up”
“It’s really important to cleanse, tone and moisturize your face each evening to remove any Make-up, grease and general dirt which clog the pores beneath the skins surface”.
Debra Robson-Lawrence of the Specialist make up Services Clinic offers the perfect solution for ‘lazy girls’ in the form of semi-permanent cosmetics. The procedures, performed by fully qualified practitioners at Debra’s spacious Harley Street Clinic allow for the eyebrows, eyeliner or lips to be permanently ‘tattooed’ for better definition.
Debra explains: “The whole process is much less invasive than a traditional tattoo and the results are very natural.
“It’s the ideal solution for women who often forget to take their make-up off as the results last for months, won’t wipe off and leave you looking beautiful bare-faced from first thing in the morning to last thing at night.”
The trademarked FAME procedure, which involves colour pigments being applied below the skin’s surface, starts at £510 and the effects last up to 18 months.
Celebrities who have admitted to having semi-permanent cosmetics include Coleen Rooney, Katie Price and Lauren Pope.
Debra says: “We can create a flawless look for you to keep 24/7, but without the negative impact on your skin and lashes. We tailor each application to every client so you can have a full on glamourous look, or go for something more natural depending on what you’d prefer”
Specialist Make up Services has approached Stacey Solomon to see if she would be interested in receiving semi-permanent cosmetics.
