Semi-Permanent Make Up

Your semi-permanent make-up specialist here at Evolve is Lucy Shaw

Lucy has worked for Vicky Kennedy for over 8 years. Lucy trained with Karen Betts in Semi-permanent make-up 4 years ago. Here at Evolve, we want to make our clients feel more confident and happy with their brows. You may no longer want to use brow pencil due to years of over tweezing. You may suffer from hair loss and want to gain your confidence back, or just want to have a fuller more natural brow to balance the features of your face. We can help you achieve your brow goals.

Why Evolve chose Karen Betts

Lucy trained at Karen Betts K.B Pro. The most exemplary training in the permanent cosmetics arena. The UK’s most esteemed permanent makeup artist and one of the earliest pioneers. Karen is one of the very few recognised by the society of permanent cosmetic professionals in the USA. Karen Betts has won many awards within the profession. It was not a hard decision for Evolve to choose KB Pro, having trained in HD Brows before, we knew the standard of training, learning and continued support and care would be exceptional.

Permanent Cosmetics is a highly skilled craft. It should take a lot of training, skill and practice in order for an artist to produce the best results. Evolve assures you that you are in good hands. Vicky, the owner of Evolve, would not have compromised and let Lucy train anywhere else. It’s the best decision for us and our clients. If you are not already a client here, you will soon discover the clinical standards we work to, no short cuts or cost cutting but extensive treatment knowledge.

Evolve Brow Treatments are a 3 part process

The 3 part process is usually completed within two appointments – a patch test prior to first treatment is necessary.

The Consultation

The first part of the process is normally done as part of your initial treatment, but can be done separately if you prefer. I will talk with you in great detail about the look you are trying to achieve and what we might recommend to you including any corrective work from previous treatments BY ANOTHER ARTIST. This is very much a two-way conversation. We listen, we respond, we advise. Once we have an idea of the look you are aiming for, we draw the brows on with a makeup pencil using our specific design mapping and balancing ruler. These can be drawn on and adjusted as many times as needed, we will never begin the tattoo process until you are completely happy with what they are going to look like and the colour. We will also show you before and after RESULTS of our own case studies


Using the state of the art Microblading tool and award winning pigments, tiny precision hair strokes are created by hand mimicking the natural Brows. The procedure takes 1-2 hours, the sensation is similar to a little scratch but you should not feel any discomfort. Pigments will appear 50% darker initially after the treatment, but will fade within 3-5 days this is when you start to see true colour. A top up is required 4 -12 weeks after your first treatment.

Semi-Permanent Make-up

Using a specialist facial tattooing machine, which works at a much lower frequency than a standard tattoo machine, we gently apply pigment to the skin using very fine needles. The sensation is that of an electric toothbrush being held against your skin – you feel the vibrations but you should not feel any discomfort. The process normally takes about one – TWO hours but it varies from person to person depending on your individual requiredarker initially after the treatment. This will start to fade after 3-5days. A top up is required ments. Immediately after a brow treatment you should expect the area to look 50% 4-12 weeks after your first treatment.

The Retouch

A second appointment is needed 4-12 weeks after your first treatment. This usually takes 30 – 60 minutes to add more pigment to the brow area. This is because as the area is healing, some parts may not ‘hold’ as well as others and you may have a few patches that need more colour. This is completely normal and everyone heals differently.
