What is Permanent Makeup?

Also known as, permanent cosmetics, derma pigmentation, and micro pigmentation. Permanent makeup is a safe cosmetic application where in which high-grade pigment is implanted into the dermal layer of the skin. 

The reasons for permanent makeup are abundant, therefore the interest in the procedure has been steadily increasing for both women and men over recent years. The fact is simple: permanent cosmetics are a fast and effective way to improve the way you look. It is not about changing your look, but rather, enhancing your natural features. Cosmetic tattoo is a way to save time and make your life easier every day. Wake up every morning with perfect make-up.  Go for a swim, to the gym, have a run, play tennis, golf, shower or perspire, your make-up won’t smudge or runoff.

Why should someone have Permanent Makeup?

Permanent Cosmetics is perfect for the busy person/professional who has little to no time to apply conventional makeup, those who like to wake up with a fresh natural look, eyebrow symmetry,  the athlete who wants to look natural, Alopecia sufferers, those with medical conditions that cause their hands to shake, areola re-pigmentation after breast reconstruction/cancer, vision problems or those that have allergic reactions to over the counter makeup products...but mostly for convenience!

How long will my makeup last?

Permanent Makeup lasts a long time, but not forever. As you become accustomed to your new make-up, it’s not uncommon to want more. You will want to freshen up your new make-up every couple of years.  The darker the colour, the longer it will stay unchanged in your skin. Natural, delicate colours are oftentimes more vulnerable to the effects of sun, swimming and breakdown by the body’s natural response.

What is the recovery-healing time?

Healing time varies from person to person. With proper topical anaesthetics & numbing, swelling will be very minimal and typically there is little to no bleeding involved. I provide each client with an aftercare package along with written instructions. The treated area will begin to soften/lighten up within 3- 60 days...and it is recommended to have your touch-up appointment any time 4-12 weeks following your original procedure.

How Long Does Each Procedure Take?

The initial procedure will generally take approximately 2 ½ to 3 hours, there are records to establish, photographs to take, desired design and colour to discuss, the procedure to perform and the aftercare requirements to discuss. Follow-up or colour refresher procedures usually do not require the same amount of time.


Does it hurt?

Topical anaesthesia is used as needed to help numb the areas to be treated. This helps to alleviate any minor discomfort you may experience during the procedure. Everyone has their own unique level of pain tolerance. Some people feel that certain areas of the face are more sensitive than others, so special emphasis is put on making the client as comfortable as possible. A variety of topical anaesthetics are on hand to ensure that your procedure is as pain-free as possible.



Can I have eyeliner and lips and eyebrows all done at once?

Yes, a full-face procedure will take 3-4 hours. In fact, an advantage is that your aftercare and healing time for all the areas will be consolidated into the same time frame. However, some people choose to do the procedures as individual appointments and some will do only brows and eyeliner and return for lips later.



I have already had laser vision correction or cataract surgery. Is it ok for me to get permanent eyeliner?

 Yes, you must be 3 months post-surgery or have a release from your eye surgeon prior to that. 



I have or am considering having eyelash extensions. What are the rules for mixing the two processes?

You must not be wearing any eyelash extensions during your permanent eyeliner procedure. You should wait until full healing has taken place before having lashes put on. 






Permanent makeup procedures are affected by the canvas (your skin) that they

are performed on. If your skin is sun damaged (even from tanning beds), thick and uneven in texture, or excessively dry or oily, the result cannot be expected to be perfect after the initial procedure.  Lifestyle,  medications, smoking, metabolism, facial surgery and the age of the skin

all contribute to fading.



Avoid any Alcoholic beverages, Coffee, Tea, Soda, Energy drinks, Multivitamins, Fish oil, Advil, Tumeric, Ibuprofen, Aspirin and any blood thinners. Blood thinners can cause unnecessary and excessive bleeding during your permanent makeup procedure.


Remove your contact lenses and wear glasses the day of your eyeliner procedure and continue using the glasses up to 7 days after your procedure.


If you are planning to have the eyeliner procedure done please have your lash extensions removed for the procedure. 


Permanent Cosmetics cannot be performed on anyone under the age of 18, it is against the law.


If you are knowingly under any influence of alcohol, drugs or medication you will be rescheduled and will be charged a £100 missed appointment. 


I will not work on you If you are Pregnant, Nursing or trying to get pregnant. 


Stop using any products that contain Retin-A, Glycol or Alpha-Hydroxy Acids or exfoliant  3 weeks prior to your appointment.   


For the best results please have your fillers and injections done 3 weeks before your procedure.


If you are pre or on your menstrual cycle, you will be more pain sensitive. Try to plan your procedure so it does not fall at this point of your monthly cycle.


If you have any medical conditions or taking prescribed medication, you must let me know and consult with your doctor and obtain written consent to get permanent makeup done.


If you are planning to have lip blush procedure done and have a history of cold sores (Herpes Simplex), even just once, I advise you to contact your doctor who can prescribe oral medication. Permanent Cosmetics treatments do not cause cold sores however, if you carry the virus, it lays dormant in the body and can be triggered by the treatment.


Lip waxing or bleaching treatment should not be undertaken for at least a two-week period proceeding with your permanent cosmetic procedure. 


If you have any blemishes, pimples, active cold sores, irritation on the skin of any kind, moles or other skin imperfections in or around the area of the procedure, I will not be able to do the procedure until the blemish or the area of the concern is gone. If you show up to your appointment and there is an area of concern, you will be rescheduled and forfeit your deposit. 


Colour Boosts will be required to restore fading colours. It is difficult to predict exactly how long the permanent makeup will last since it depends greatly on the client's skin type and lifestyle. Expect your permanent makeup to last anywhere between 1-5 years before it shows signs of fading.


If you had Chemotherapy or Radiation done, you need to wait 6 months and obtain written consent from your doctor, so that you can have a permanent cosmetic procedure done, before having any permanent makeup done.





Failure to follow any, or all post-treatment instructions may cause loss of pigments, discolouration or infection. More customised aftercare directions will be given to my clients after their procedures.


No direct water on the treated area.

No working out or excessive sweating for 7 days after your procedure.

No direct sun or tanning beds. 

No Retin-A on or around the area.

No chlorine (swimming pool) or salt water (sea) for 10 days after your procedure.

No facial surgeries or laser procedures after permanent makeup procedures. Please consult with me for instructions.
