Meet the Lingerist
I am the founder of Caroline Permanent Makeup and the owner of Blush Beauty Lounge in Bournemouth.
I have worked in the beauty industry for almost a decade while gaining more and more proffessional trainings and adding more services to my service list.
Now I am an expert in my industry and recognised and licensed Long-Time-Liner lingerist in Bournemouth with over 7 years’ experience in Semi-Permanent Make-up.
Qualifications and Training
With an extensive background as a Beauty Therapist and Makeup Artist, I received my first permanent make-up training with reputable LCN where I have learnt eyebrows, eyeliner and lips micropigmentation.
I attended a 1-2-1 training with the highly reputable Katerina Zapletalova, the UK top trainer for Eyebrow Microblading in the permanent makeup industry.
I attended an advanced 3D Eyebrow Masterclass with Kamila Kaca from Ireland who is a world renowned master and trainer, visiting the UK and other countries regularly to teach her realistic permanent makeup techniques. I have improved my skills in hair stroke eyebrows and learnt the realistic 3D eyebrow effect.
I have obtained my License at Long Time Liner in Poland in 2015 after a full week training by the leading trainers from the most renowned and awarded permanent make-up brand that offers highest quality standards for 25 years in natural pigmentation.
Throught the years I have had observed some of the industry’s best practitioners, and very talented artists which gave me the inspiration to perfect my skills and constantly train in permanent make-up which I do until now.
In addition to my semi permanent make-up training, I qualified in many aeras of skin rejuvenation just to name a few microneedling, mesotherapy, microdermabrassion, peels, dermal fillers etc.
My Profession and my Passion
Being a Permanent Make-up Technician is a lot more than just having a qualification in a profession. It is a passion for the work and the experience gained over years. I have an endless passion for what I do and the commitment to maintain the highest standards of treatments.
When I first heard about permanent make-up, I realised that there is a real alternative to the conventional, topical make-up treatments. The best about it is that this investment is long-lasting and leaves you with more self-confidence. Since I have had a permanent make-up for the first time myself 10 years ago I became an absolute fan of Semi-Permanent Make-up and all its benefits.
Therefore my main aim is to help women become more beautiful, more confident and feel better about how they can look. Permanent make-up is an art and every permanent make-up technician has their own personal style, taste and perception of beauty. Also every customer has individual features and expectations from the permanent make-up artist.
That is why they both should try to reach the compromise of which look suits customers best. I always easily find the areas of the facial features that can be improved. However I never try to convince someone to choose a procedure if I don’t think it would benefit and improve their look.
My professional experience
I treat all each client individually and spend as much time as needed with them on planning, drawing, and choosing the perfect shape and color that to compliment skin tone and enhance their natural beauty. My existing clients who originally had their permanent makeup done somewhere else before said that they noticed difference in quality of my work.
I combine experience and qualification in the field of micropigmentation as well as artistic eye and attention to detail. However not only the extensive knowledge of aesthetics and permanent makeup, but also the highest quality equipment and pigments, help me to achieve the best results.
Assessing and correcting any asymmetry of a client face is vital in permanent makeup to create a harmony of facial features as well as precise drawing which I have learnt over the years.
It is not uncommon to have clients asking me to correct their permanent makeup. I have more and more clients requiring correction after having permanent makeup done elsewhere by poorly trained permanent makeup technicians either using low quality pigments fading into bluish or purple colors or wrong pigment placement in the skin so it does not last as long as it supposed to.
How to choose the Technician
I would like to advise all people interested in having permanent make-up treatment before they make their decision on which technician to choose.
Please do the research and carefully select the right person to avoid disappointed and regret. Remember that experience, qualifications and commitment is the key to becoming a skillful permanent makeup specialist.
Be prepared to ask to view their portfolio, and see if there are pictures of their work and their style that you like. Please remember every permanent make-up technician has its own unique style. Moreover ask the technician for consultations while they can draw eyebrows, liner, lips on your face that will give you an idea on their drawing skills which are crucial for sucessful results.
If you would like to book a free of charge consultation with me please contact me.
