Hi, I’d like to introduce myself…

Lip Enhancement Specialist Alex Milligan

Alex Milligan
Bournemouth Permanent Makeup

Thanks for dropping in – I’m Alex and I wanted to tell you a bit about myself!

I’m proud to say that I’m 2x Winner of the Corporate Live Wire Prestige Award for Best Permanent Makeup Clinic in the South West 2020/21 and 2021/22.

I’m fully trained, insured and licensed in all areas of Permanent Makeup and Scalp Micropigmentation, as well as Saline Ink Removal (LiFT), and I absolutely love what I do. Achieving perfect results for you while complying with the highest standards in safety & hygeine is my number one focus.

I first became interested in permanent makeup when I had my own brows transformed a few years ago. The re-shape and definition of powder 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. I loved having permanent brows so much that I went on to have lip blush and permanent eyeliner!

Being naturally creative not only makes this job more enjoyable but helps enormously in terms of designing and creating the correct brow shape, lip shape and colour selection for all procedures.


Since my initial training, I’ve invested frequently in further training courses to focus on more specific areas of PMU. I’m a member of the PMU Circle, an association for PMU professionals who care about best practise. You are more than welcome to request to see my training certificates or ask any questions.


I have had many changes of career since going off to uni to study French & Spanish in 1999! Since then, I have worked in Human Resources, as a Primary School Teacher, and just before embarking on permanent makeup, I was a franchisee for a children’s messy play company. I studied Art at A Level so I do have an artistic streak, which definitely makes me love this job more. I also enjoy drawing in my spare time (which isn’t much with 2 boys). You can see some of my drawings on my Instagram page highlights (www.instagram.com/bournemouth.pmu)

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 be assured that I work to the highest standards of health & safety and hygiene. Only pre-packed, single-use sterile cartridges 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.

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.

Thanks for visiting my website and I hope to see you soon!

Specialist Training

 I’ve had specialist training in corrective treatments so I am able to perform corrective permanent makeup procedures on unhappy clients that have had their permanent makeup done elsewhere with poor results.

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*

Patch Test

A patch test will be performed during your consultation and must be done at least 12 hours before the procedure
