Scroll below to see some of Laura’s work and more information about the procedures.

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup. It enhances the appearance of the face by targetting areas of the eyebrow to create the most naturally full, realistic-looking eyebrows.

This procedure is performed using a handheld tool composed of microscopic needles, resembling a blade. Each hair stroke is hand-drawn depositing pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. This is much closer to the surface of the skin than the use of standard tattooing.

Is Microblading For Me?

The intradermal pigmentation procedure for the eyebrows can mimic the appearance of the hair in the brow line. Anyone who desires more fullness of brows will love the procedure, and time saved not applying makeup! Those who apply pencil and love to go to the gym, play tennis and go swimming can wipe their forehead without the worry of wiping their brows away! Those suffering from alopecia (hair loss) are normally surprised with how realistic the procedure looks! Microblading is really for everyone, so book your consultation today!

Lip Blushing

Lip blushing is a form of semi-permanent makeup. Essentially, it is a cosmetic tattoo of the lips that enhances the beauty of the natural lip colour, improving the shape of the lips, giving definition and the illusion of fullness.

Typically, lip blushing lasts between 2 – 3 years and will gradually lighten and fade over time, until your lips slowly return to their natural hue.

  • Day 4-5 – Lips feel dry and a softer colour revealing underneath
  • Day 7+ – Lips should feel normal but colour is almost gone, don’t panic. Remember your selected colour will be stronger and more sharply defined immediately after treatment but as the healing process occurs the colour will soften and lighten up to 70%

  • Time for Top Up!
