Since I was at primary school I have had a hang -up about my eyes.
As a natural red head I have been blessed (or cursed) with very fair eyelashes and eyebrows.
I was always so jealous of other girls who had beautiful dark, luscious eyelashes and brows.
When I was about 13 I was on holiday in Wales with my family.
My mum got chatting to the beautician in the hotel we are staying at. She suggested eyelash and eyebrows tinting…… OMG!!
That is when my love for beauty therapy, make-up and cosmetics started.
If you are a working lady or a full time mum you will appreciate the lack of time we have to faff about every morning getting our eyebrows looking sharp.
Tinting is great but if you have to use a beautician it can be time consuming and costly long term.
I had been thinking about eyebrow tattooing for a while.
I have a big holiday coming up this year which motivated me to just go for it!!
I did a huge amount of research into semi permanent make up and who could do it.
I finally came across Luci Bruce in West Wickham.
She came highly recommended and her previous clients looked amazing and
even better…. She was local!
On meeting Luci I knew I had made the right decision.
She took time finding out exactly what I liked and what I didn’t.
I showed her pictures of how I do my eyebrows and explsined i wanted a ‘natural look ‘ so that I had the option to darken them if I was going or for the night.
After an hour or so of drawing the shape, making sure everything was just right, she got to work.
I had expected some sort of pain. I had a tattoo when I was 18 and I thought I was being murdered!!
It honestly did not hurt at all. A slight scratching sensation to start with, then, nothing!
It was almost relaxing!
The results are amazing! I am over the moon!
At £350 it is not a cheap procedure. Bit in my opinion worth every penny!
That also includes a top-up 6 weeks later.
This is my miricle worker, but if you decide to use someone else please do your research.
I have heard a lot of horror stories!
I may even get my lips done next 😜
