A TALENTED businesswoman has been improving the confidence of local women thanks to her semi-permanent makeup skills.

A non-surgical cosmetic technique that was previously only affordable by the rich and famous, such as Coleen Rooney, is now available in Horwich.

Charlotte Hudson has been offering the technique based out of Serenity Hair & Beauty in Horwich for just over a year.

She said: “Many people come to me extremely low on confidence, due to having little to no eyebrows.

"With today’s hectic lifestyle, a lot of people get stressed and one sign of this is to pull out your eyebrows. For a women this can lead to extremely low confidence as they feel extremely self-conscious about it.”

The technique takes around two to three hours to complete and is a innovative method of inserting small amounts of pigment in to the top layer of the skin, to enhance a woman’s natural features. It is also said to be one of the best anti-ageing treatments, as it subtly lifts the eyebrows which naturally lower as we age.

“I’ve been doing semi-permanent makeup for 10 years now, and I do everything from eyebrows to eyeliner and lips. After the treatment, my customers regularly hug me as they are so happy with the result.

"To them it means they don’t have to draw their eyebrows on again, and it also makes them look younger.

"It’s such a rewarding job. This year I did three people for the same wedding, the bride, her mum and one of the bridesmaids, all from Bolton. I can’t wait to see the pictures.”
