Meet the UK’s leading make-up tattooist, Karen Betts

Posted by Nadia Burgess on April 30, 2012

Adding a touch of eye pencil to your eyebrows is becoming more and more popular as a daily beauty essential, but would you get yours tattooed on? What if you had cancer? Karen Betts is the inspirational woman behind a Harley Street clinic offering women permanent make-up solutions.

Whether you’ve lost your hair through illness or simply want to have an easier beauty regime, Karen is the woman who pioneered creative cosmetic tattooing in the UK 12 years ago.  She offers eyeliner, lip tinting, nipple pigmentation restoration and eyelash enhancement but she says her most popular treatment is by far eyebrow tattooing.

“About 80% of people don’t have a good eyebrow shape naturally and it makes such a huge difference to your face.”

 

Karen has tried and tested her own techniques and is keen to reassure people that it is a viable and realistic option:

“Some beauty journalists are snobby about the results because they say it doesn’t look real. If it’s done properly though, it should be a natural daytime look”.

The make-up lasts for 12 to 18 months before it needs retouching so it is important that it is an everyday look and she encourages her clients to use ordinary cosmetics if they want to create a heavier, evening look.

For anyone considering the procedure, Karen recommends going for a consultation. “You have to really trust anyone who is going to permanently tattoo your body,” she explains.

Karen really is the number one expert in her field and has appeared on television shows including 10 Years Younger, Extreme Makeover and This Morning. What makes her even more special is her compassion for women and men who have lost their self-esteem after illness or disfigurement. Katie Piper, the well-known campaigner behind the Katie Piper Foundation, is one of Karen’s long term clients and now Karen is the exclusive permanent make-up consultant for the foundation.

Karen Betts & Caroline Monk join forces for Caroline’s Campaign

Posted by Nadia Burgess on March 15, 2012

An inspirational Campaign…

Caroline’s Campaign is the brainchild of campaigner and current ‘London Personality of The Year’ Caroline Monk. Caroline knows all too well, like many of Karen’s current patients, how devastating the effects of chemo are on a person’s physical appearance and confidence – this includes the loss of head hair, eyebrows and eyelashes. These symptoms serve as a constant reminder of the disease and can make coping with the illness very difficult. Caroline’s Campaigns see a number of deserving women pampered all over the country including Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool and Leeds.

Karen Betts is a BUPA registered beautician renowned across the world for her expertise in semi-permanent makeup and medical tattooing. Karen’s passion and determination to change lives coincides and parallels with Caroline Monk’s fantastic cancer charity work. Karen can literally tattoo back on their confidence to the affected areas. Karen’s work is unprecedented in both the beauty and medical sector and is also the MD of the largest semi-permanent make-up training school in Europe, ‘Nouveau Contour’ which trains thousands of individuals in these specialised ‘micropigmentation’ skills and we hope that Karen’s expertise and skills continue to make a positive change to the confidence and lives of these women who have been affected by the disease.
