Thank you so much for doing a sterling job on my lip line & blush. After just 3 days the healing is already well on its way. I enjoyed the whole experience and felt really pampered.
I especially loved your lovely treatment couch, what a treat on a cold January day!

I was very nervous about having this type of procedure but given how my eyebrows look now I am very pleased with my decision to get them done. I love the way my brows give shape and definition to my face, should have done it ages ago.
Thank you Geraldine for your attention to detail, your professionalism and understanding.
Anne | August 2017
Having suffered the loss of much of my eyebrows due to an under-active thyroid. I thought I was doomed to spend the rest of my life painting in my eyebrows on a daily basis.
Having heard about semi permanent make up from a very old friend who lives in England. I asked her as she was in the middle of her treatments if her practitioner could recommend someone here in N.Ireland.
She recommended Geraldine and how glad I am she did.
I contacted Geraldine by phone and she explained the process and when my precautionary patch test was negative it was all systems go.
Arriving for my first appointment with some trepidation Geraldine put me completely at ease by explaining the whole process again in detail and answering all my questions .
The procedure proved to be a relatively painless affair executed in a most professional and caring manner.
Having had my second appointment with Geraldine over a month ago. Everything has calmed down and the results have more than met my expectations. To date I have not had to wear any make up other than foundation and my self confidence has received a very welcome boost.
I cannot speak highly enough about Geraldine and have confidently recommended her to my friends and acquaintances.
I cannot thank you enough Geraldine and I am only sorry I hadn't heard about you years ago
Geraldine Boyle | August 2017
Geraldine has done a brilliant job on my eyes. I had very little eyebrows, now I have got amazing ones!
I would recommend Geraldine to anyone. Very friendly and down to earth
Nicola Matthews | May 2017
I have just got eyeliner done with Geraldine Flynn and previous to this I had my eyebrows done with Geraldine. I loved both treatments and I believe Geraldine to be the best semi permanent make up artists in N Ireland. She is so professional and makes you feel so at ease.
In my profession I see a lot of semi permanent make up and tattoo done very badly! I have no hesitation in saying Geraldine Flynn is the best I have seen, and no problem recommending any of my patients to her for treatments. Thank you Geraldine!
Avril Dolan | SPMU Trainee
Thank you for looking after me today and sharing your knowledge and experience with me, I greatly appreciate your time and all the work you put into today's course with me. I have learned a great deal, and looking forward Now in developing my technique and undertaking all that is involved, needed in the practice of permanent makeup. You were so informative, professional and explained everything clearly and made me feel very welcome and more at ease. I Am thankful for your detailed observations, feedback and critique and now have more clarity and understanding to work on what was outlined. A true professional, her results and efforts are flawless.
Maura Bradley | April 2017
Today I had part one of my semi permanent eyebrows done. I was very nervous but was immediately put at ease by Geraldine. I felt free to discuss and adjust untill we reached a mutual agreement. I am so delighted with the result that I wish I had done this years ago. There was no time where I did not feel in control and would now trust Geraldine with any future treatment without fear.
I did some research on line and chose Geraldine because of her experience, the fact that she teaches the subject and the testimonies of others. My first impressions were that I chose the right one because the therapists own presentation and appearance is a "make or break" matter.
Laura Keenan | FINISHING TOUCHES SPMU TRAINEE, January 2016
Thanks again for your teaching, I honestly loved it and enjoyed it! thank you for your support and I hope to do you proud!
Laura Comerford | December 2016
The results speak for Geraldine. Such a lovely person instantly put me at ease. A true professional in her field. Could not recommend her enough. Delighted with my brows .
Donna Smyth | November 2016
I just had my brows done today with Geraldine and I am soooooo happy. They look fab. So delighted with them
Donna Dorothy | FINISHING TOUCHES SPMU TRAINEE, November 2016
After months of researching all the big names in semi permanent make up training, I am so glad I decided on Geraldine. From the first contact she was informative and encouraging and answered all my queries (and I hadn't even booked yet). The training is intense but the content and way in which it was delivered was first class. I now have the foundations for a whole change in career. Yes there are companies offering training for less but I'm reassured I picked the company with the best technology, pigments and trainer there is. Thank you Geraldine x
Michelle McDowell | October 2016
A big thank you for a wonderful job on my eyebrows. You're bless with talent and a very caring and thoughtful personality. What a Transformation, really delighted with the finished look.

Karen Watson | September 2016

Karen Moreland | August 2016
Completely love the finished look! I went from having very thin, light brows to having full and dark ones that don't even need any product on them. The whole experience was 5 star. I was made to feel very relaxed and in capable hands. Would completely recommend this to everyone!
Roxanne Morton | August 2016
Geraldine is brilliant at what she does! I wouldn't have as much faith in anyone else. I have had 3 treatments now with her and can tell how much she loves her job and helping clients make the most of their features! Would highly recommend if you are thinking of getting any spmu done you won't regret it !
Anne Woods | August 2016
Geraldine is excellent at all treatments she carries out. She is always professional and her results are amazing. Could not recommend her more!
Alice | July 2016
I have alopecia and even worse than losing my hair was the loss of my eyebrows. I had been drawing them on for years and always felt I needed to check if they were still there. I had researched Geraldine about 5 years ago. This year I finally plucked up the courage to have semi permanent eyebrows created by Geraldine. Geraldine made me feel so at ease and took great patience getting the right shape for my face. She explained the treatment and the healing process. I kept a little photo diary of the journey with my new eyebrows; I love that I wake up with eyebrows and especially over the summer having eyebrows makes me feel ready for anything.
I took care to protect them from the sun as advised. I took a long time getting there and am so glad that I did as I am delighted with the result. Thank you Geraldine
Ann | June 2016
Hi Geraldine, just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the top up you did on my eyebrows
they are even better this time, I love the little hair strokes they look so natural and it's lovely to look in the mirror in the morning, make up free and not feel like crying, thank you so much.x
MICROPIGMENTATION UK AWARDS FINALIST | May 2016
Brilliant Permanent Make-up artist makes you feel so at ease and fabulous results. I have used Geraldine 3 times now and would highly recommend her.
I'd love for Geraldine to win. She is approachable, welcoming and her work is of rhe highest standard. Great service
I spoke with Geraldine Flynn and even though i was not one of her regular clients she did all that was possible to help me and I would be delighted to sing her praises to all that need her services i cannot say enough about her
From Geraldine first contact with me she had always been professional/honest and knowledgeable. She came highly recommended and trust her 100%
I have had brows, liner and lips done a few times with Geraldine and I am more than happy, as is my sister who went through cancer and now has her lovely brows and liner restored.
Geraldine is an absolute professional. She has an amazing bubbly personality & is a true artist. My eyebrows have received more compliments from beauticians, my hairdresser, friends, colleagues & customers! I can't recommend her talents enough. Even my 79 year old mother, house bound & in poor health made it a priority to visit her last year and have her eyebrows 'repositioned' after a slight stroke; Geraldine made her look and feel fabulous again...
I am voting for Geraldine because of her obvious dedication and care towards her clients. She takes time to help you decide what is the best treatment for you and she carries it out perfectly in my opinion.
Fantastic natural results. Exactly what I wanted. Well explained and very professional.
Ina | April 2016
Geraldine, I had to let you see this photo of a very young me. Look at the eyebrows. You got my shape perfect. You are smart.
I am delighted with the result ,it's unbelievable the difference in the whole appearance and as I've said many times I wish I had got it done many years ago . I'll be careful to protect them on my forthcoming holiday as you suggest.
Thanks for doing such a perfect job and Ill come back to see you when I feel they need enhancing again ,about one year you recommend. Even though I have a fringe, you can still see the eyebrows framing my face.
Caroline Beggs | Finishing Touches SPMU Trainee, January 2016
When I did my Semi Permanent Make Up course with Geraldine she was amazing! So patient and explained everything in a way which made it easier to understand. She shared with me her stories of experience, good tips & helpful advise and not everyone would do that. Geraldine has such a great personality which made my training days enjoyable as well as learning all that I needed to know!
Thanks for everything I couldn't have asked for a better trainer! XX :)
Irene Harte | March 2016
I'm absolutely delighted with my brows! I couldn't have imagined them more perfect.
They are still healing, can't wait until they are fully healed. So happy!
You're truly talented!
Marie O'Neill | March 2016
I am more than happy with my brows. Thanks so much for the excellent, very professional service, from the consultation to the end result. I don’t wear any product on my brows, there is no need, they are exactly how I wanted them.
Clara | February 2016 (Update)
Just to say thank you for yesterday. My eyebrows look great. Already had a few compliments about the great shape they are. This is the 4th time l have been to you and as usual you did a great job. I wouldn't go to anyone else. Thank you for making the whole experience a pleasure. You always put me at ease and the end result is always fabulous. I would highly recommend you as simply the best at "Semipermanent Makeup"
Karen | November 2015
Hi Geraldine, just want to say thanks for giving me eyebrows, I am so delighted with them, I would highly recommend you to anyone that was thinking of having semi permanent make up done.You are a true professional and have such a lovely way with you, you put my mind at rest and did exactly what I wanted,only regret I have, I did not do it sooner. I am thinking of maybe getting eyeliner done in new year. Thanks again hope to see you soon!
Janice Mulhern | October 2015
Treated myself to semi permanent eyebrows and eyeliner for my 50th last year. Best thing I every did and so sorry I didn't do it years ago. I spent a long time researching technicians online and had originally made an appointment with a mid range salon. But fortunately went with my initial instinct and could not recommend Geraldine highly enough.
Rebecca Nutt | FINISHING TOUCHES SEMI PERMANENT MAKE UP TRAINEE | September 2015
As a qualified therapist for 20 years now, I have attended many training courses but I was seriously impressed with the finishing touches semi permanent makeup week. The trainer, Tarryn, was very experienced and knowledgable and explained everything clearly and without too much jargon! As the classes are small, just 2 of us, you really get a lot of help and attention, but even more so for our week as had the lovely Geraldine assisting Tarryn so pretty much got one to one training! Very impressed with the whole set up, thanks finishing touches!
Amanda Wilson | FINISHING TOUCHES SEMI PERMANENT MAKE UP TRAINEE | September 2015
I really enjoyed my training with finishing touches .I learnt so much in such a short space of time it was amazing . Geraldine was a great source of knowledge , so helpful and was fabulous in sharing her experience with us to help us on our journey to become a SPMU technician. Thank you Geraldine for your support on my course I think you are a great trainer.
Kristen Caroll | FINISHING TOUCHES SEMI PERMANENT MAKE UP TRAINEE | June 2015
"I did my training in SPMU with Geraldine last year and she was an excellent teacher. She took me through all aspects of my course in detail with great patience and shared her invaluable experience with me too. Although my training finished in the 'classroom' when my course was done she has been there for any questions and queries I have had since which is priceless to me being a new technician. I feel I was very lucky to get Geraldine as my trainer. She is excellent in her field. Thank you Geraldine"
Tracy Stewart | May 2015
Geraldine, I want to thank you once again for the treatment you provided. I was nervous about having something semi permanent done but I felt comfortable with you from the start. You addressed my concerns and explained everything as we went along. I have had lots of compliments since getting my eyebrows done which has given me so much confidence. My eyebrows look so natural and I couldn't be happier. Every time I look at my new brows, I am amazed at what you have achieved. Your talent and passion for achieving the best end result as if it were your own face has given me the confidence to proceed with Eye liner and Lip Blush now too. Thank you so much, I feel like a different person.
Clara | April 2015
Just to say many thanks for doing my eyebrows on Thursday. They are healing really well and I am thrilled with them.
Thank you for making me feel at ease and comfortable during the procedure.
I will be back next year. Your simply "The Best". Many thanks
Ann | April 2015
Well its day five since you did my eyebrows, and I can't thank you enough, I keep looking in the mirror to check its me, I love them as does everyone I've shown them to, they are healing nicely, a little itchy, but apart from that no problems, can't thank you enough.
Melissa McKay | March 2015
So as we are no longer in the 90's and my ultra thin brows are no longer in fashion I decided it's time I had to do something a little more permanent to rid myself of this constant obsession I had drawing on my brows.After a year of confidence building and research I found Geraldine Flynn online,I chose Geraldine because of the clinics that she worked from and also the price(ladies you get what you pay for cheap doesn't mean good work) and her experience & confidence when speaking with her.I have had my second treatment done and although it's still healing I can still see how good they are going to look.I feel much more confident to go out with no makeup and just my tattooed brows,my only regret is waiting so long to have this treatment done.
Debbie | March 2015
True professional""I couldn't be happier. I had my top and bottom eyeliner completed a few weeks ago by Geraldine, she was a true professional and bent over backwards to fit me in her busy timetable. She was recommended to me and I am so glad i went with her. I am so pleased with the treatment and I was worried that it might not look natural but it is perfect. I fully recommend this girl,true professional!
Jane Cordner | February 2015
I have just completed my second visit to Geraldine to get my eyebrows done. . I went in with some trepidation but Geraldine put me at ease straight away .
The process was very professional and quick . I have not had any eyebrows for a number of years as I have a Thyroid complaint and I never felt complete .
When I came out after my first visit I was looking in all the shop windows at MYSELF I was so chuffed .
Thank you Geraldine . I'm very happy.
L. McCandless | January 2015
Today I finished my semi-permanent eyebrows treatment and I am absolutely delighted with the results. I can go without any eyebrow pencil but can also make the eyebrows a little more dramatic by touching up a little with an eyebrow pencil.
As a consequence of a medical condition I am in the process of losing my eyebrows. Geraldine Flynn was recommended to me as being one of the best in her field and consequently perhaps not one of the cheapest. I am so glad that I acted upon that recommendation. I was nervous about the process as it was completely new territory for me, however I have just completed the second and final stage of my treatment. First stage a semi-permanent base and one month later the second stage, again a semi-permanent treatment to give further dimension to the eyebrows. Every individual is different but in my case, during stage one, the first week my eyebrows were 'healing' and hence gradually scabbing although the scabbing was scarcely noticeable. During the second week the scabbing loosened from the skin and once this happened it either fell away of its own accord or I gently removed it with tweezers making sure that the scab was no longer attached to the skin and only caught in what remains of my eyebrows. There was also a little peeling of the skin both in the eyebrows and above and below each eyebrow. During this second week the semi-permanent eyebrows became fuller and lighter in colour. I would say that in two and a half weeks the eyebrows were completely healed but I did not touch them with anything until three weeks at which time I gradually, over the space of the next week, resumed my normal face washing, showering, hair washing and make-up routine. During the second stage the process took a little longer but followed the same pattern and it was three weeks before I considered that the eyebrows were completely healed but once again I waited an additional few days before I touched them with anything and then, as with stage one, I gradually, over the space of the next few days, resumed my normal washing and make-up routine. Just for information for the first three weeks (stage one)/three and a half weeks (stage two) I was so careful washing my face and neck whilst totally avoiding my eyebrows; I showered from the neck down making sure the water did not hit my face and I washed and rinsed my hair with a face cloth!! I wore make-up throughout but avoided the area around the eyebrows. The scabbing, whilst it formed and subsequently fell away, was surprisingly very discreet so I just went about my daily business in confidence. It is not a painful treatment although you do feel the pricks but nothing significant. I am absolutely delighted with the results!! I had confidence in Geraldine from our first meeting. She discusses and explains everything and can be contacted should you have a query. She is a professional and worth every penny because she does a truly excellent job. I could not be happier with the outcome.
Update Jan 2016: As a consequence of a medical condition I am in the process of losing my eyebrows. Geraldine Flynn was recommended to me as being the best in her field and I am so glad that I acted upon that recommendation. I had complete confidence in Geraldine from our first meeting. She both explains and discusses every aspect of the process and can be contacted at any time should you have a query. I am absolutely delighted with the results. She is a professional and worth every penny because she does a truly excellent job. I could not be happier with the outcome and would have no hesitation in giving her the highest recommendation to anyone in need of her professional expertise.
Update March 2016: I recently had my semi-permanent eyebrows 'touched-up'; approximately one year after my first procedure. I had been very cautious the first time however this time Geraldine suggested that we keep the same colour but thicken the eyebrows a little and I am absolutely delighted that I followed her suggestion; they look even better than before.After the procedure the skin above and below the eyebrows was slightly red and there was a miniscule discomfort hardly worth mentioning. Within a few hours the redness and very slight discomfort had disappeared. Defined brush strokes in the eyebrows were pronounced and the colour was darker than they will ultimately be when they have healed, however the overall look was quite natural.
Day 5: No change in intervening days and this morning I noticed a slight blurring of the brush strokes and, on very close examination, noticed that the scabbing had started.
Day 10: During the last 5 days the brush strokes have continued to blur and I can see the scabbing continue. Today I see a tiny bit of the scab just beginning to lift off the skin.
Day 15: The scabbing is lifting and the skin above and below my eyebrow is peeling so I have removed with tweezers, as carefully as I can, the scabbing which is no longer attached to the skin and have removed carefully and gently the peeling skin from above and below the eyebrow. The eyebrows where the scabbing has been removed are now their true colour and I love the increased fullness!!
Day 20: No scabbing remains however the skin in my eyebrows looks a little dry and flaky. I contacted Geraldine to ask if she thought my eyebrows would have healed sufficiently to resume my normal face/hair washing in view of the fact that the skin in my eyebrows still appeared a little dry/flaky and she said it should be ok. I washed my face gently with a cream cleanser and the skin was perfect, i.e. the dry/flaky skin disappeared, so normal washing was resumed and I am absolutely delighted with the results!!
Patricia White | October 2014
Having always had very fair, thin eyebrows which have become more sparce as I have become older, I am delighted with the Semi Permanent procedure applied by Geraldine. The improved shape and colour of my eyebrows has added definition and enhancement to my eyes and has increased my overall confidence so much that I have no hesitation in recommending this specialist professional service to anyone.
Debbie Morrison | August 2014
I had wanted my eyebrows done for a while and having done a bit of research, I felt Geraldine would be the best person for the job and I wasn't disappointed! She put me right at ease throughout the procedure and kept me informed of what to expect, the healing process and the do's and don'ts in maintaining the colour of my eyebrows. I would highly recommend Geraldine to anyone considering getting semi-permanent make up as I am very happy with what I had done and Geraldines friendly professional manner was a bonus! I will definitely be getting a top up for my wedding.
Ruth Kyle | July 2014
Color refresh: I am absolutely delighted with the results of my first colour top up. I hadn't realised how faded my brows had become as it's such natural and gradual process. The procedure was the same as before and I had no problems whatsoever with healing, I did find it slightly itchier when healing this time for some reason! But I had no problems at all, with no oozing and very minimal swelling. I really am delighted with the whole process! The colour and shape is amazing and I know it will continue to adjust and settle in the next few weeks but I couldn't be happier. I am delighted to have amazing brows back!
I just want to thank you for everything I really appreciate it. See you in 12 months !!!
Further update: Just a quick email to let you know that even after all these months I am still receiving regular compliments on the perfection of my brows!
I have had 4 this week alone 2 of which just now at The Therapy Rooms in Ross Park Hotel! As well as at my doctors when getting my flu jab and out at a show this week. The past month alone I have had about 8 or 9 positive comments as well as 'seriously thats a tattoo can I get closer for a better look' lol! And comments on how perfect they are and the colour is.
I make sure to pass on your details every time! I can't wait to have my top up!!
Just wanted to let you know that your handiwork is v much appreciated!!
Update: I was in work just now and ended up with three colleagues around me getting a closer look as they thought they looked HD or threaded and wanted to know who I used as they were so 'perfect', one even took your card!
I am so happy with them honestly I cant thank you enough it has completely changed my life. I now enjoy lie ins and not having to waste half an hour pencilling crap ones in! Some days I dont even wear makeup! This was a massive no no before! Its still quite the novelty for me that they dont come off when I wash my face!!
Thank you so much you really are a Godsend!!
Just a quick email to let you know that I LOVE MY BROWS!!! I am absolutely delighted with them! I have had nothing but compliments on them! I haven't touched them at all since you finished them and I have had no problems whatsoever - apart from the difficulty of negotiating a shower this morning without wetting my face lol. They seem to be 'drying' out and all seems well, I've had no swelling, redness or soreness etc. They are great and I am absolutely delighted with them! I can't stop looking at them lol, I just want them healed and done now so that I can see the finished colour, but I actually don't mind the colour they are now! Thanks again, I look forward to seeing you in four weeks and having them completed, it can't come quick enough!!
Ruth Cheevers | June 2014
I had my top eye liner done a few months ago and I absolutely love it! Geraldine put me at ease from beginning, explaining the treatment in detail with a very friendly and professional manor. How quick and easy it now is to do my eye make up with the added help of semi permanent make up - cant believe the amount of compliments I have received from people about them! After care advice was really thorough and helpful, even a call to check everything was ok, I couldn't recommend Geraldine highly enough.
Marian | January 2014
My eyebrows look amazing! they have healed so well! You were right when you said it was life changing!
Thank you so much!
Geraldine Steenson | December 2013
I couldn't be happier with my brows. They are fabulous, they give my face definition and are a perfect shade. Geraldine was very professional and gave me excellent advice regarding shape, shade and position of brows. Thank you so much.
Caroline Armstrong | November 2013
Geraldine was recommended to me several years ago and I haven't looked back since. I find the care and professionalism with which she carries out her work is outstanding.
The standard of hygiene, care and advice given and results of treatment are exceptional.
Louise Sefton | October 2013
Having recently had my brows touched up I decided to share my story.
As a young woman, losing my brows really dented my confidence and was totally unexpected. Gradually over a period of time after having my daughter, I noticed them just getting thinner and thinner. Struggling every morning to get them just right was terrible. Not only that, I hated going out in the rain paranoid that my eyebrows would just wash off, and fun activities with my daughter like swimming were just out of the question! As things went on and my brows practically disappeared, I knew I had to do something about it. That's when I discovered Semi Permanent Make Up through Geraldine's website. Geraldine took me through a through consultation and her professional, caring and understanding approach completely reassured me. The thought of having beautiful perfect brows everyday couldn't have made me happier. After deciding the shape and colour with Geraldine's guidance, I was confident this was the right thing for me.
Now my confidence is back, I feel like myself again. Everyone tells me how nice my brows are, it's the best thing I've ever done, I cant believe I didn't do it sooner, it really changed my life and all these years later I still love my brows and am just as happy as the first day I went for it!
Kim McGirr | October 2013
I had semi-permanent make up applied to my eyebrows by Geraldine. I have the procedure topped up every 18 months but this was my first visit to Geraldine. This was by far the best result I've had to date. The colour and shape are exactly what I asked for. Geraldine was very professional and I will definitely be recommending her to friends and family.
Denise Robinson | June 2013
Anyone with fair brows who would constantly require them to be tinted like myself, this is a must! No more tinting or pencil, just permanent colour. Wake up feeling fresh. Geraldine was fantastic, very patient and professional. Thank you.
Anne-Marie McMenamin | May 2013
For years I have had very sparse eyebrows and only now at 36 did I take the plunge and decide to have the treatment of Semi Permanent Eyebrows.
Geraldine made me feel very at ease and is a lovely person who made the experience a very pleasant one. I would urge anyone who has thought about this treatment to contact Geraldine as her expertise in the area is brilliant. I love my new eyebrows and they have made me more confident with life.
Eva | April 2013
I had considered having Semi Permanent Make Up for several years. Eventually having done my research, I decided to go with Geraldine and I could not have made a better decision on a better choice of specialist.
I am so pleased with the results! All my friends have commented on how my new brows look so fantastic. They frame my face, make me look younger and thinner are some of the complements I have received.
Geraldine is very friendly, extremely professional and excellent at her job. I am more than pleased with the treatment. I would recommend her and Semi Permanent Make Up to anyone who is considering having this done. My only regret is that I didn’t do it years ago.
Denise Robinson | April 2013
Anyone with fair brows who would constantly require them to be tinted like myself. This is a must, no more tinting or pencil just permanent colour. Wake up feeling fresh. Geraldine was fantastic , very patient and professional. Thank you
Orlaith McAallister | April 2013
Being a busy single mum of two, I always longed for that fresh eyed look in the mornings. After some research I decided that I was going to take the plunge and have Semi Permanent Make Up.
I decided on top Eyeliner in black applied by Geraldine Flynn who came strongly recommended.
My first session was relaxing as Geraldine is very detailed and honest about how it will feel and what to expect. I wasn’t nervous just very excited and after an hour or so it was over and my eyes felt and looked great.
I followed the aftercare instructions and I had no complaints. Second session was just as easy.
Results are AMAZING!!! I have a fresh wide awake look now even with 2 hours sleep. If I don’t want to wear eye make up or mascara I don’t have to as the eyeliner is there. I feel very confident and will definitely be trying out other areas – maybe lips next :) Orlaith xxx
Niamh McClelland | March 2013
I used to spend ages in the bathroom drawing on my sparse brows, being blonde they really faded in to my face and I always felt naked without them penciled in.
I did some research on-line and decided to find someone in Belfast who could give me permanent brows that wouldn't smudge or rub off!
Geraldine was so professional and confident, she put me at ease straight away.
She measured my brows and discussed how the shape would enhance the rest of my features. We had a look at different shades too, deciding which would most flatter my skin tone and hair. I had every faith in her.
And the results are amazing! My new brows are a million times better than any I could ever have drawn on, and the time wasted penciling them in!! I wish I had met Geraldine years ago!
That was last year and I have since had Geraldine enhance my lips too! :) Subtle liner, to make my lips appear fuller and bit more kissable :)
The results, again, amazing.
Geraldine and I discussed the technique, shade and healing etc. She made sure I was happy and relaxed during the procedure, and made sure my lips were healing nicely over the next few days.
I'm delighted with them, as I am with my eyebrows. Eyeliner next Geraldine! :)
I recommend Geraldine HIGHLY for any treatments, she's the best. And once you've had your brows, lips, or anything else done, you will wish you had met her sooner!!
Freida McKittrick | January 2013
I am very very pleased now I have actually got eyebrows without having to spend half an
hour in the bathroom pencilling then in, thanks Geraldine, see you in 4 weeks time. I am very happy with my eyebrows as I had none at all, lasts about 18 months before a new touch up, brill!
Lucia Downey | August 2012
I'm very happy with my makeup (Eyebrows and Eyeliner). I was away in Donegal and was asked how I do my makeup so professionally. Was well chuffed. People keep saying I look great but don't know what it is until I tell them. Can't wait to get my lips done.
My mum loves it, she rants and raves every time I go to see her. I have to admit I feel more confident now especially when I put some makeup on.
J. Robinson | January 2012
I have thought for a long time about semi-permanent make-up and have read many accounts on the internet. My reason for wishing this treatment is that as I have a busy lifestyle and also love sport I still want to look my best. I had a consultation with Geraldine which I found very important especially to indicate the look that I wished to achieve. She has a direct approach which I find very personal and explained the procedure very clearly. I am delighted with the results and so much so that I have had additional treatments. I would recommend the procedure highly and wish I had had it years ago.
Isabelle Ewing | May 2011
I would like to thank you for the wonderful work you have done creating eyebrows for me. Even though I have a very fair complexion and none existent eyebrows you managed to give me a natural colour and a shape that has added structure and definition to my face. I appreciate the time and effort you took with me explaining the process and putting me at my ease as I was very nervous with it being a semi-permanent procedure. The eyeliner was the perfect finishing touch and the dash of purple you added has brought out the colour of my eyes. Thank you for making this a great experience and it looks so good I wish I had done it years ago.

Having just had my eyebrows done by Geraldine I now want to encourage anyone thinking about this procedure to go for it. I cannot stress enough the difference it has made to my life. I am much more confident and no longer shy away from eye contact with others.
The difference eyebrows make to your face really is amazing!! Geraldine did a fantastic job, she knew exactly what shape and colour would suit my face and I trusted her completely. From start to finish I felt totally at ease. Geraldine's professional, caring approach was much appreciated and at no time did I feel embarrassed or self conscious. My only regret is that I didn’t do it years ago...the painless, procedure was worth every penny. Thanks Geraldine.

I have suffered from full alopecia for the last 7-8 years and as anyone with this will know it is a very hard thing to deal with. When it happened to me I completely lost all confidence in myself but through great wigs I managed to scrape a small piece of this back but I was always very aware of how strange I looked without eyebrows!.
I had considered semi-permanent make up for many years but was always afraid and put off by the many horror stories that you hear about. It was only this year that I plucked up the courage to ring Geraldine and my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner, she was amazing from start to finish and after meeting her for the first time within a few minutes I had complete confidence that she was going to make me look and feel wonderful again. I have now had both sessions done and I am completely overwhelmed with how well they look and how it has gave me all my confidence back in such a short space of time.
I cannot thank Geraldine enough for how much she has helped me and I would very highly recommend her to anyone.

After the birth of my second child, my eyelashes and eyebrows all gradually fell out over a period of four months. Though my eyelashes did grow back, my eyebrows have never grown back.
After two years of pencilling and shading my eyebrows in, (sometimes very badly!) Geraldine’s name came highly recommended to me. Although, I was initially hesitant to visit Geraldine for a consultation, as my vision of semi permanent eyebrow makeup was a thin, hard, purple line – instantly recognisable. I was persuaded to go by my husband as he knew how badly it was affecting my confidence.
All I can say is why did I wait so long! Geraldine instantly put me at my ease, she explained exactly and at length what the procedure would entail, provided me with information to take away and also showed me ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures.
We discussed the colour and the shape of my brows. Geraldine assured me that the colour would not be ‘purplish’ and advised me what colours should be used so that my brows would be natural looking. Regarding the shape, Geraldine explained that she would measure my face at different points and then she would draw the brows on, taking into account my facial expressions, e.g. one of my brows is naturally slightly higher than the other.
After the consultation I decided to come back and over three visits Geraldine created the perfect eyebrows, each time adding a little more to the brow thus ensuring I was more than happy with the shape and width. I can say with confidence that to date no-one has spotted that they are not the real thing! They are the perfect shape and colour and Geraldine also created little tufts thus enhancing the natural look of them. To be honest they are better than the real thing! I don’t need to wear any make-up now whereas before I had to wear eye make-up to visit the corner shop! (Having no eyebrows leaves you looking very strange!)
Geraldine put me at ease with her assured and professional manner and I could not recommend her enough. The shape of my eyebrows is amazing! A lot of my close friends and family have remarked that they make me look younger!
If you are thinking of semi-permanent make-up I would urge you not to delay and to visit Geraldine for a consultation.

I found it difficult to find anyone in Belfast who offered semi permanent lip liner, then Geraldine was recommended to me. Geraldine was excellent, gave me a lot of reassurance and made me feel very relaxed. The standard of hygiene was excellent throughout the procedure and I had no problems with healing. I was very pleased with the colour retention and with the overall result.

Absolutely delighted with result - everything was explained in a professional and concise manner. The procedure exceeded my expectations - the shape and colour of my eyebrows is extremely flattering. Many thanks.
