Secrets to get you out the door faster each morning
When it comes to makeup, especially in our hot weather, you need a look that can go the distance. An increasing number of women are turning to beauty treatments that ensure longevity without multiple applications throughout the day.

Consultation: During the consultation, the technician will assess any contra-indications such as medications that might affect your suitability for the treatment, along with your objectives and expectaions. Your consultation may also involve a patch test. Semi-permanent makeup will work for most people, but if you’re on medication it may be worth checking with your GP prior. For example, those on blood thinners may not be the best candidates.
