Hello, I’m Sarah Gibb
Elite Level Permanent Make-Up Artist
I have been carrying out permanent makeup procedures for both cosmetic and medical treatments since May 2012 but my beauty background stems back to 1991 where I gained my ITEC diploma as a Facial Aesthetician and Beauty Therapist
I was first introduced to permanent makeup about 12 years ago when I had my own eyebrows tattooed because of a waxing mishap! During my treatment, I was utterly inspired listening to an amazing lady called Karen Betts talk about how she not only offered cosmetic tattooing, but that she also helped people with difficulties such as hair loss due to alopecia, burns, post chemo hair loss, cleft palette struggles, mastectomy areola reconstruction, to name just a few and I knew instantly that this was what I absolutely had to do with my life! My passion for permanent makeup was born right there and then and it has never left me.
Due to personal circumstances, I was unable to under go training until many years later but fast forward to 2012 and my passion to study this area of the cosmetic industry was still as strong as it ever was, so I took the plunge and invested in extensive training with prestigious industry leader Nouveau Contour, working my way from entry level Bronze to the highest level possible of Platinum Elite. This gave me an incredibly solid grounding in permanent makeup and enabled me to learn methodically and continually through a highly professional and structured programme, carefully ensuring every aspect was covered before I could progress to the next level. This method of initial training is, in my opinion, essential when joining the permanent makeup industry as there is an immense amount to learn and perfecting one area before moving on ensures a very thorough understanding. I continue to learn now and always keep my skills regularly updated.
I was then asked to join Karen Betts’ Elite team as a trainer at Nouveau Contour and was overjoyed that I could accept this position to help train new students. My mother is a teacher, perhaps I have the desire to want to teach in my genes, I’m not sure, but I do know that I absolutely loved this experience. I was also so honoured to be amongst, what I consider to be, some of the most talented permanent makeup artists in the world, yes I mean the world! It was while training students that I gained a deeper understanding of the complexities of permanent makeup which I may have taken years to “discover” myself. I am extremely proud and grateful to have been a member of Karen’s prestigious and highly respected Elite team.
Having carried out thousands of procedures I have a wealth of knowledge and experience in many different treatments and scenarios and can see very easily, for example, which designs and colours work well for people, and things to be aware of technically.I can foresee potential problems and know how to avoid them, and can advise you honestly if I think permanent make up may not be right for you. Everyone I see is treated as I would like to be treated myself and I am passionate about giving everyone outstanding customer service.
Treatments are carried out inside a discreet clinic, which is modern, spotlessly clean and has a tasteful, relaxing ambience. Your complete satisfaction with every aspect of your time spent with me is what I strive to achieve.I want you to leave me feeling uplifted, happy,more confident within yourself and totally satisfied with the process and your results. Therefore, I promise to look after you and make you feel special by giving you the most exceptional, safe and rewarding experience I can.
Sarah is very professional and clear and made me at ease throughout the entire process I had my eyebrows and eyeliner done, I am very impressed with the final result, I never thought I would feel as confident going out with less makeup
