Welcome to your comprehensive guide to achieving the brows you've always dreamed of! Finding the right technician and understanding the ins and outs of semi-permanent makeup can be a journey, but I'm here to simplify it for you. Take your time to explore and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch.

My approach to semi-permanent brows, whether it's hair-stroke, ombré or combination, they are created using a machine. This advanced technique allows for precise pigment implantation, catering to various skin types with optimal results. This method ensures consistent quality and lasting beauty. I do not do microblading.

Everyone can benefit from semi-permanent brows! Each set of brows I create is tailored to suit you. Some skin conditions and medication can prevent you from having the treatment so if you are unsure please seek medical advise from your doctor.


Now, let's address the burning question: Does it hurt?

Everyone has a different threshold of pain. Clients often find that tweezing during the tidy up is more painful than the actual procedure. A numbing cream can be applied if essential . . . some clients have even fallen to sleep!

How 'permanent' are semi-permanent brows?

Technically any form of tattooing is permanent, even microblading. It is an extremely delicate form of tattooing, meaning they fade at a much quicker rate than an ordinary tattoo - which is why they are referred to as 'semi-permanent'. The technique is to lightly build the pigment up, the pigment used is designed to fade, unlike ordinary tattoo ink. This allows for adjustments over time and a natural-looking result that evolves with you.

How long does it take?

The procedure takes around 2 hours. This includes a thorough consultation as well as you seeing and approving the shape and colour.

How long do they last?

After the first procedure I do ask you to return 6-12 weeks later for the first top up. After this top up, your procedure is complete and your brows should be top-up free for another 12-18 months plus! This all depends on skin type and other factors e.g. UV exposure and regular facials. The correct aftercare is essential.

Can I get my brows done by you if I already have them tattooed?

Yes. It depends what is underneath, sometimes it isn't possible to correct or go over another technicians work. Therefore removal will be suggested. A consultation is essential in this case. Please be aware, that as you are a new client to me, it will be priced as a new set of brows, not a top up.

What is the aftercare?

A detailed aftercare pack including products is provided upon completion of the treatment.

Do I need to maintain my brows after the procedure?

Your natural hair will continue to grow as usual, but routine maintenance is minimal.

Can I get my brows done whilst being pregnant?

No you can't have the procedure whilst pregnant or breastfeeding. It is also advisory to wait at least 3 months post pregnancy or finishing breast feeding so your hormones can stabilise.

How do I book?

If you haven't had your brows done by myself or another technician please feel free to book direct here. If you wish to contact me first, please feel free to do so.

Discover the beauty of lip blush - a treatment you didn't know you needed until now! Say goodbye to the hassle of daily lip makeup and hello to effortlessly stunning lips with this semi-permanent solution. Lip blush enhances your natural lip shape and colour, lasting up to 2 years or more, with the option to customise your perfect shade.

A thorough pre-draw is done on the day to get your lips to the perfect shape and symmetry. Once you are completely happy with the shape, the procedure can begin. The lip is lined, contoured and shaded to blend. You will be required to book your second sitting 6 weeks after your first appointment.


What will they look like when they're healed?

On the day when you leave the colour will be at their peak intensity. Once healed the colour will have faded by up to 60% which will be the final colour. Be prepared for them to be more saturated in colour on the day than you originally anticipated.

Does it hurt?

Everyones pain threshold is different. Numbing cream can be applied as required.


What colour should I choose?

You can to some extent choose the colour yourself. However your own lip pigment/undertones and level of coverage will play a part in the final decision. I will help guide you to choose.

What is the healing process?

When you leave, your lips will be swollen. Swelling will subside and the colour will change in density on a daily basis. Please remember that swelling does not subside symmetrically. Your lips will be healed within 3-5 days but, you won't see your final result for at least 6 weeks.

Can I have this done if I already have lip fillers?

Yes! They are the perfect combination. You will need to wait at least 6 weeks in between each treatment.

Will it make my lips bigger?

As we age we naturally loose the pigment in our lips, as well as the lip line. The procedure doesn't make your lips bigger in the same way filler does but it will make them more defined therefore giving the illusion of plumper lips.

What if I get coldsores?

The procedure itself does not give you coldsores. If you are known to have the virus, there is a chance that, due to the treatment you will break out. If you currently have a coldsore, you will need to reschedule your appointment.

What is the aftercare?

I will give you some lip products for your aftercare. This is to be used when the lips feel tight. If you get a coldsore you can use Zovirax or similar.

How long does eyeliner permanent makeup last?

The longevity of eyeliner can vary depending on factors such as skin type and lifestyle, but typically it lasts anywhere from 1 to 3 years before needing a touch-up.

Does it hurt?

Pain tolerance varies among individuals, but most clients report minimal discomfort during the procedure. Topical numbing cream is usually applied to ensure a comfortable experience.

What styles of eyeliner can be achieved with permanent makeup?

Permanent eyeliner offers versatility in styles, including natural-looking enhancements, subtle lash enhancements, and more dramatic winged looks.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure typically takes about 1to 2 hours, including consultation, numbing, and the application process.

Is there downtime after the procedure?

While there may be some mild swelling and redness immediately after the procedure, it typically subsides within a few hours to a day. Clients can typically resume normal activities shortly after.

What is the healing process like?

The healing process varies from person to person, but generally, there may be some flaking or scabbing as the skin heals. It's essential to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your technician to ensure optimal results.

Can I wear makeup over permanent eyeliner?

While it's best to avoid applying makeup directly on the treated area during the initial healing period, once fully healed, you can apply makeup as usual. However, keep in mind that permanent eyeliner can reduce the need for daily makeup application.

Can I choose the colour and thickness of the eyeliner?

Yes, you can work with your technician to customise the colour and thickness of the eyeliner to achieve your desired look, taking into account your natural features and preferences.
