Karen Betts Launches K.B Pro Pigment Range

Posted by Sarah Gordon on July 28, 2015

Colours you can trust

The name Karen Betts is recognised as one of the leading and most dominant names in the Permanent Cosmetics Industry. But taking the industry by storm over the last 20 years; MD at Nouveau Beauty Group; one of the most reputable beauty groups in the UK and also responsible for HD Brows and Nouveau Lashes, launching Nouveau Contour – the UK’s most reputable Permanent Cosmetics Training academies,  collaborating with the Katie Piper Foundation, winning several industry awards which include the ‘Industry Leader Award 2015’ and ‘Woman of the Year at the 2014 Natwest Every Woman Awards’, amongst many other accolades, simply wasn’t enough for Karen Betts. This month, saw Karen launch K.B Pro; her very own range of permanent cosmetics pigments, developed and manufactured in the UK.

It’s no secret Karen is extremely passionate and dedicated to continue evolving and progressing in her career, to offer the most elite treatments and results for her clients, and to also ensure that all permanent cosmetics artists that train through her academies are also providing the best possible treatments and services. So it’s hardly surprising that she worked tirelessly over the last two years to develop, test and refine the pigments. Enlisting the help of her trusty Elite Permanent Cosmetics Artists, Karen’s aim was to ensure the pigments were produced to the highest possible quality and standard, so permanent cosmetics artists and medical tattoo artists around the World could deliver optimum results for their clients.

Not only do the pigments glide into the skin more effortlessly and heal true to colour, they also fade to hues that still appear perfectly natural.

There are currently 12 brow pigments, 11 eyeliner pigments and 5 adjusters available within the range. Karen has also created 4 colour collections; the Vogue Pigment collection (a vibrant eye pigment colour collection), the Back and Grey collection, the Day Brow Pigment collection and the Night Brow Collection, and there is an Adjuster collection available. What more could a permanent cosmetics artist ask for?

Well, there is also a Professional Colour Guide for the pigment range which offers invaluable insight into how to get the best from the range, select pigments, blend and adjust pigments to suit specific client skin tones, and also give in-depth summaries and case studies for each pigment.

The pigment range is now available for professionals to purchase at Nouveau Beauty Group, with introductory promotional offers which are valid for a limited time only, and the colour guide will be available to purchase shortly.

Also, in support of the her new pigment range, Karen has created K.B Pro Education, an educational forum on Facebook which professional cosmetics artists can join to gain more information and insights into the pigments and other products in the K.B Pro range. Through the forum, professionals can also benefit from exclusive advice and support from Karen and her Elite Team of cosmetics artists, alongside industry and educational updates, and professional tips.



Jade from the Sugababes gets the Karen Betts Eyebrow Treatment

Posted by Nadia Burgess on May 3, 2012

Jade Ewen one third of one of Britain’s most successful girl bands the Sugababes visited Karen Betts, director of The Nouveau Beauty Group, where she had her eyebrows permanently tattooed.

She said of the treatment: ‘I’d heard so much about Karen Betts and her work so when it came to doing my eyebrows, she was the first person that came to mind’.

Following the treatment, Jade said: ‘I’m thrilled with the results, they frame my face perfectly!’ and we couldn’t agree more!

Having established herself as the number one permanent cosmetic beautician in the UK, Karen Betts has an unrivalled reputation in both the beauty and medical sector.

 

Such is her esteem that in addition to being the permanent cosmetics consultant for both the BBC and Sky TV, she has launched a successful collaboration with The Katie Piper Foundation and was exclusively chosen to mentor TOWIE’s Amy Childs as she opened her own beauty salon.

And as the pioneer of creative cosmetic tattooing in the UK, it’s no surprise that her expertise is in high demand nationwide.  The treatment has become increasingly popular in recent years following a surge in demand for shapely and defined eyebrows. Correctly shaped brows have long been known to frame the face and maintain a youthful appearance; Karen’s technique is to apply tiny, individual hair strokes in different shades of pigment to create a 3D effect and long-lasting, natural-looking eyebrows.

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.
