Bournemouth Permanent Makeup
Thanks for dropping in – I’m Alex and I wanted to tell you a bit about myself!
I’m a fully trained, insured and licensed permanent makeup technician, and I absolutely love what I do. I’ve always been a huge fan of the transformative powers of makeup, and I’m guessing that you are too! So, I wanted to tell you a bit about my background, my training and my life.
I first became interested in permanent makeup when I had my own brows transformed around 6 years ago. The re-shape and definition of powdered brows, not to mention the fact they remain perfect day & night, made me realise I wanted to specialise in this field. If they could make my life so much easier, I realised I could help others with this too.
Being naturally creative not only makes this job more enjoyable but helps enormously in terms of designing and executing the correct brow shape, lip shape and colour selection for all procedures.
I wanted to ensure I received the very best training in permanent makeup. After lots of research, I trained one-to-one with the multi-award winning Permanent Makeup Training Academy. Given that my top priority is achieving the perfect result for each client, I frequently invest in continuing professional development, training in the newest techniques so that my knowledge and practice is up to date.
I’m a mum of two boys, and live just outside Christchurch. I work from a fully equipped home clinic.
THE HIGHEST STANDARDS
When I go for permanent makeup myself, one of my top concerns is whether I’ve chosen someone who will consider their clients’ health a priority. You can rest assured that I work to the highest standards of health & safety and hygiene. Only pre-packed, single-use sterile cartridges and microblades are used for each client. Pigments are pharmaceutical grade, gamma-ray sterilized, hypoallergenic and have been EU regulated. A patch test will always be provided to ensure minimal risk of an allergic reaction (although there have been no reports of allergic reactions from this product; they do not contain PPD).
Equally important is whether the person performing permanent makeup on your face is highly skilled and knowledgeable in the field. Do they care about getting the perfect look for you or are they rushing to get the next client in? You can check out information about my training below, and take a look at my client portfolio. A face to face consultation is recommended prior to booking an appointment.
If you’re interested in any of the procedures I offer, I will be more than happy to discuss any concerns or questions with you, either over the phone, by email or in person, for free. Contact me at any time!
Thanks for visiting my website and I hope to see you soon!

I Use Only the Highest Quality Permanent Makeup Pigments on All My Clients…
All the colour pigments that I use have been specifically formulated through years of research and development using only the finest grades of iron oxides and lakes, the same ingredients found in make-up giants
Lancome, Estee Lauder, Shiseido, Truco, Guerlain, MAC, Channel and Gucci
cosmetic products. All the pigments I use are medical grade and from the leading suppliers to the medical profession worldwide. All my pigments are hypoallergenic and are also designed for concealing imperfections on burns, scars, cancer, vitiligo, and cleft pallet patients. They have supreme colour concentration meaning less touch ups over the years.
All of my lip and eye pigments are fashioned after the top cosmetic manufacturer colours which remain true over the years. All the pigment bottles are sterile, heat sealed and tamper proof for your protection. Each one is encoded with lot numbers and expiration dates.
All pigment has a micron count of between 6 & 8 to the colour last in the skin. I carry the widest variety of natural permanent makeup colours which I custom blend for Blondes, Brunettes & Women with Silver hair. I can also order designer colours for those wanting more dramatic colour results.
Your Consultation & Your New Look Designs
Consultations are very important, not only for me to find out more about you but for you to meet me, ask me questions and have a look at the premises where your procedure will be performed to make sure you’re 100% happy.
During the consultation we will go through your expectations, what styles, colours and shapes you like along with what suits your face shape and skin tone.
Procedure & Anti-Allergy Patch Test
The treatment takes 2 sessions to complete, 6-10 weeks apart.
After the first session your permanent make up will be much darker and bolder for 5-10 days. This can be a shock to some people but it will soften up to 70% for a very natural finish.
Once healed it can appear patchy which is completely normal and is why you come back in 6-10 weeks for a top up.
At the second appointment we will even out any patchiness and completely perfect your permanent makeup
*Please make sure you’re able to attend the second appointment within the time frame before booking the procedure as after the time frame a top up fee will be required*
A patch test will be performed during your consultation and must be done at least 12 hours before the procedure
