About Me



My Name is Barbara, but you might know me better as “Mrs Makeup”. Back in 2011, I learned the art of permanent makeup. I thought it would be something I could enjoy a couple of days a week, and had no idea we would become one of the most well known permanent makeup artists and training centres in Scotland!

With over 10,000 clients UK wide, and over 500 students worldwide you can be assured that you are in safe hands by choosing me.

I always find it quite hard writing a biography as everyone wants to be seen as “the best”. I don’t think that anyone can truly claim to be the best as we all have our strengths, but I am pretty damn good and I will look after every person who comes to see me. Getting the best for you is always my priority and that comes before bookings, profits and anything else that can sometimes blur people in business’s vision.

I’ve been featured in various magazine articles about the work I do. I have been nominated for Scottish business woman of the year twice, and I won “Outstanding contribution to the industry” 2018.

I am regularly recommended by top surgeons for my medical tattooing work and have even taught some of them how to do what I do! I have been guest speakers at events all over the UK, and even got to speak in Australia once, and the USA twice!

I never could have imagined that people from the other side of the world would learn from me, so it’s been a great honour to be so widely recognised by industry leaders as well as my clients.

Whether you are looking to learn permanent makeup, or find out more about a treatment, I am always here to answer your questions. Have a look at some of the things I am involved with on the website, or you can contact me directly with your enquiry at the links below
