With a wealth of experience helping clients restore their appearance and confidence Cathy’s work in the cosmetic tattoo field is fast generating an celebrity following, with models and presenters putting their confidence in her abilities to create the look they desire.
Having worked in the semi permanent makeup industry for over 10 years, Cathy's skills, artistic flair and knowledge of colour has enabled her to achieve a reputation as one of the industries elite .
When I first started carrying out procedures, semi permanent makeup was in its infancy, lip liners tended to be quite bold, brows dark and sold, however over the years both technology and techniques have developed tremendously enabling us to create soft natural lip blushes, textured hairstroke brows and colour enhancing eyeliners. In 2004, following requests from patients & peers Cathy decided to specialise in corrective and reconstructive procedures including areola tattoo and scar camouflage receiving training from finishing touches, areola restoration services and mentoring from Karen Betts. Her work in the medical arena has been credited by nursing times and closer magazine and she regular attends seminars as a keynote speaker raising awareness of how cosmetic and medical tattoo can complement the work of surgeons.
In 2004 Cathy was selected as a trainer for nouveau contour giving her the opportunity to pass on her industry knowledge to students just embarking on their career. “I teach infection control and cosmetic artistry, ensuring students work safely and their work suits a clients facial features, I then see them again normally about 2-3 years into their career once they have mastered colour theory and implantation so they develop their skills in medical tattooing”
My week is so varied, one day I can be tattooing a natural brow on a client that has Alopecia, correcting the symmetry of lips following cleft palate reconstruction the next applying perfect smudge proof eyeliner or a more defined eyebrow for a beautiful cosmetic enhancement
