Permanent makeup (PMU) is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that involves implanting coloured pigments into the skin using a tattoo machine and needle, to enhance your facial features, most commonly eyebrows, lips and eyeliner. Also known as semi-permanent makeup (SPMU), micropigmentation, cosmetic tattooing.
POWDER/OMBRE BROWS – £350This is a shading technique done with a machine. Tiny pixels of coloured pigment are implanted into the skin creating a powdery finish - perfect for those that are used to pencilling in their brows everyday. Healed results can be soft and natural looking (like a fresh eyebrow tint), or more dense with an ombré graduation (replicating conventional makeup products). Powder/ombré brows are suitable for all skin types and any amount of natural brow hair.
HAIRSTROKE BROWS – £350Pigment is implanted into the skin by machine in a pattern that mimics real eyebrow hairs similarly to microblading. Katie opts for machine hairstrokes over microblading due to minimal skin trauma with a machine and less chance of scarring. This is a more gentle technique and is actually suitable for all skin types, even oily, unlike microblading. However this style of brow is not recommended if you have lots of thick, coarse natural hair because this is difficult to blend hairs with a tattoo.
COMBINATION BROWS – £350Using both hairstrokes and shading techniques combined to create permanent brows. This style is ideal for anybody seeking to have permanent eyebrows with any amount of brow hair due to its natural yet defined results. A combination brow would look great every day with or without makeup.
MICROBLADINGKatie does not offer microblading - please see “Hairstroke Brows” to understand how she achieves natural looking brows with a tattoo machine, rather than microblade. Microblading is a manual technique that uses a handheld blade to deposit pigment into the skin, replicating real brow hairs. This technique is only suitable for those with a dry - normal skin type, that is youthful and has good levels of elasticity. Microblading cannot be used to cover up previously tattooed brows due to its natural looking approach.
LIP BLUSH - £350The most popular lip design to add volume and contour your lips. Opt for a soft and dusty, natural look or be bold with brighter or bolder colours. Also suitable for lips with dermal filler. Your lips will be lightly outlined first, then shaded to add a flush of colour and blend the newly defined vermillion border.
SINGLE LASH ENHANCEMENT EYELINER - £300The perfect crisp line tattooed along either your top or bottom lash line between the roots of your eyelashes. This eyeliner is great for fair clients or those that don’t typically wear eyeliner everyday but would like to enhance their eyes, making their lashes appear more full and dense.
DOUBLE LASH ENHANCEMENT EYELINER - £350Same as above but both the top and bottom liner is tattooed if you book for a double lash enhancement. Results can be thin and crisp allowing for a subtle heal or slightly thicker for a more noticeable result depending on your desired finish.
WINGED EYELINER - £320A defined winged eyeliner is perfect for those who like a bit more drama and are already used to wearing liquid winged eyeliner everyday. Eyeliners like this tend to be a lot more permanent because the pigment extends into areas that are less likely to fade. The position of the wing will be pre-drawn and discussed prior to being tattooed. Please be aware that we cannot safely tattoo pass your crease, anything bigger than this will have to be added with makeup once the tattoo has healed.
SMOKY WING EYELINER - £350A slightly softer version of a winged eyeliner due to a pixelated blend from across the eyelid to the point of the wing. This style of eyeliner is great if you love wearing a kohl eyeliner pencil daily.
