The Courage to Age Gracefully: The Transforming Power of Permanent Makeup

In 2006 women have many choices. Every day the media portrays women in positions of power in newspapers, on TV and the radio. Women are buying their own homes, having babies when they are over forty, marrying younger men or not getting married at all, driving race cars and working as the president’s “right hand man”. Women are beginning to believe they can have it all, that their dreams can come true and they are right. As a permanent invisible eyelashes professional I see many women in my practice from all walks of life. I am pleased that so many women I meet who are over fifty are living exciting, inspired and transformative lives. Quoted in a recent article by Jane Ganahl in the San Francisco Chronicle Candace Bushnell, author of “Sex and the City, stated “Five or six years ago we [women] were talking about men, relationships and sex. But now it’s about careers, aspirations, hopes, dreams — what you hope to do in your life.”

Redefine the Word “Older”

Writer and humorist Erma Bombeck once said “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’.” Living life to the fullest is one of the important parts of experiencing wholeness and satisfaction with your life. These days women in their 50’s, 60’s and even 70’s go back to school, start dating, visit places they have never been, feel sexy, write novels, start businesses and purchase property. Women have reinvented themselves. Getting older no longer means hating loud music, getting shorter and having blue hair; it means being free of the responsibility of raising children, being more financially stable, having stronger and more passionate relationships because you know yourself better.

Let Yourself Shine

Loving the way you look is beneficial to how you age. Permanent invisible eyelashes offers a wonderful alternative to cosmetic surgery, hours of applying makeup or simply feeling bad about your appearance. The ultimate aspect of beauty is up to you…shining your own unique light. Permanent makeup strives to enhance the features you have and increase the sharpness and clarity of facial color that begins to fade as we get older. Recently I had a client who is over seventy and after her permanent makeup procedures she told me “even with the plastic surgery [3 facelifts], the permanent invisible eyelashes is the one thing that gave me the most self-esteem. I wish I’d known about it and done it years ago.”

Believe in Your Own Power.

It takes courage to grow old gracefully. Many people focus on the negatives and allow themselves to focus on the end of life, but life is really a series of beginnings and endings that happen every day. The experience of life really makes us more self aware and therefore more powerful. If we acknowledge that, we manifest growth and transformation. If we believe that age drains us and makes us weaker than it is very likely that will occur. Speaking of transformation, let me tell you about another client of mine. For over forty years, she had suffered from serious illnesses. Then multiple organ transplants freed her of diabetes and dialysis. To celebrate her new health and vitality, she had me apply color in her brows and lashes which had thinned out since the surgery. A burst retina makes it difficult to apply conventional invisible eyelashes so permanent brows and eyeliner seemed the perfect solution. While in my office she told me “It was not until after my transplants that I found myself asking the big questions of Life and seeking understanding.” It is never too late to take a new lease out on life and you can never predict the changes the Universe will give to you.
