Microblading & Semi Permanent Make Up 
(SPMU) Courses

 Eyebrow microblading is performed by a manual deposit of pigment under the top layer of the skin by a hand held tool. It does not involve using a machine unlike permanent make up. Microblading technique involves drawing individual crisp hair strokes that are more natural looking.
The blade or a microblading pen is three times thinner than needles used for tattooing.


All courses will run with two or more learners, if you require a 1-2-1 tuition,
there will be an additional premium.
