Karen Offers Permanent Cosmetic Artists chance to Sample New K.B Pro Pigments

Posted by Sarah Gordon on August 26, 2015

To commemorate the launch of her new K.B Pro pigments, Karen Betts is offering permanent cosmetics artists throughout the UK the chance to receive six FREE 2ml sample pigments in assorted colours, worth over £50, for a limited time only.

Each pigment from the new K.B Pro range has been thoroughly tested and personally approved by Karen and her Elite Team of Permanent cosmetics artists, and as well as offering greater stability and higher definition, the K.B Pro pigments also achieve a ‘truer’ intended healing colour.whykbpro

Even though the pigments have been approved by some of the industry’s most renowned permanent cosmetics artist, Karen wants to give artists the opportunity to undertake their own trials and give the pigments their very own seal of approval.

The complimentary samples consist of 3 brow pigments: Ibiza, Paris and Milan; an adjuster pigment sample; Casablanca and Rio De Janiero; a soft black Eyeliner Pigment. The sixth pigment is a mystery pigment which varies for each sample, giving artists the ability to experience different pigments from the K.B Pro range.

To get the most out of the samples, Karen has devised some top tips:

BROW PIGMENT SAMPLES

IBIZA  

A really lovely colour to use on fair-haired clients and it stays true in the skin once healed. Due to its slightly cool and soft ashy undertones, I find it works well in fair skin and neutralises soft salmon tones.

PARIS

 A lovely, rich medium-to-dark cool brown with a hint of golden undertones. Heals very true to colour. I sometimes warm it up with a couple of drops of Casablanca. I love to use a 1 point needle with Paris for really well defined hair strokes.

MILAN

My universal medium-to-dark brown. Upon healing the client will lose a maximum 10%-20% of the colour, so great retention.  For cooler skin tones, you may want to warm it up with a couple of drops of Casablanca.

ADJUSTER PIGMENT SAMPLE

CASABLANCA  

A lovely yellow-orange mixer and warmer for light to medium toned brow pigments. It’s also great for shading over light grey brows before adding hair strokes.

EYELINER PIGMENT SAMPLE

RIO DE JANIERO

A mid-range and soft black due to it’s blend of carbon and iron oxide. I would recommend you don’t use this pigment on thin skin or where an obvious protrusion of veins is visible on the eyelids, and don’t mix it with anything else.

Dermatude And A-Lift Shortlisted In MyFaceMyBody Awards 2015

Posted by Nadia Burgess on August 21, 2015

MyFaceMyBody

I am so proud to announce that both A-Lift and Dermatude have been shortlisted in this year’s MyFaceMyBody awards.

A-Lift in the ‘Best Skin Tightening’ category and Dermatude in the ‘Best Anti-Ageing Treatment’ category.

I knew when I discovered A-Lift around 4 years ago and met with the inventor, Ali Hussain, that this treatment was something special. I didn’t know then what I know now about nanocurrent technology, but I knew it was something special and not something to pass up.

I am ecstatic that it is finally getting the recognition it deserves. It is being placed in front of this large audience as all I ever wanted was to bring this treatment to the public. I want fantastic results, such as the ones that can be achieved from an A-Lift treatment, to be readily available to men and women up and down the country. If being shortlisted for this award introduces A-Lift to one person who can benefit from it’s breathtaking results – I will be happy.

It’s not all about A-Lift of course, Dermatude being shortlisted for the anti-ageing award is amazing!

After A-Lift, I got really interested in the skin health industry and when I found Dermatude I again knew this was another innovation. Dermatude has revolutionised skin needling by reducing the risk, improving safety and introducing no downtime after a treatment. Pair all of that with the dramatic results I see daily and you’re onto a winner.

I know there are thousands of people out there who know how special both A-Lift and Dermatude are. If you can take two minutes out of your day to vote for us I would be very grateful.

Thanks, Karen x
