Having worked in the beauty industry for 4 years with brands such as Dylan Bradshaw and Benefit, I decided it was time to showcase my passion for the industry and dedicate myself to brows. From having an in-depth consultation to giving you the brows of your dreams, you are guaranteed to have an amazing brow experience as well as having a hearty giggle along the way!
The beauty industry has always been my biggest passion. I studied beauty therapy in Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School and was awarded student of the year. I am also a highly experienced HD brow stylist. I am very excited to start my new adventure with the Dublin Makeup Academy team and showcase my brow skills.
Finishing my Makeup Artistry course in 2007 in one of the most prestigious colleges in Brazil, I started my career with MAC. I then worked with the musical theatre of broadway including The Lion King, Priscilla Queen of Desert and Sister Act. I moved to Ireland early 2016 and worked in Brown Thomas as a Makeup Artist for Chanel and Armani among others.
I specialise in perfecting brows, bringing my microblading and micropigmentation training to Dublin. I am also trained as a HD Brow Stylist and love to create bespoke brows to suit each individual.
Our exciting new treatment: LVL
Transform your lashes
LVL (length volume and lift) promises to transform your natural lashes giving an instant eye lift. The LVL Enhance treatment straightens then curls your natural lashes from the root which gives you the effect of longer, more lifted lashes with no extensions, no adhesive and no mascara.
The typical process involves a technique of bending back the lashes and takes around 40 minutes and lasts up to 6-8 weeks and the best part? No need to worry about mascara in the morning. This revolutionary treatment is cruelty free and promises not to compromise the natural growth pattern of your lashes. And the pièce de résistance - you can have this dreamy treatment all while having your brows done at the same time 😆🙌🏼

master HD Brow stylist, PHIBROW artist and LVL artist
As an experienced High definition Pro Stylist and Beauty Therapist, I have achieved CIDESCO qualifications, HD qualifications and most recently phibrow training. A highlight of my career would have to be winning 'Beauty Therapist of the Year' as awarded by my college. My core focus and specialist area are brows. They are my passion and I have always endeavoured to master my skill by attending various training courses. I hold both the basic HD brow qualification and the Advanced PRO certification. If I were to describe my brow style, it would be a soft feathered yet defined brow; a brow that has texture and strokes that can be seen over the skin.
I've been privileged to train with and work alongside Kim and I am so excited to get to know the incredible client base at the Dublin Makeup Academy.

PHIBROWS semi permanent microblading
PhiBrows is a manual skill of semi-permanent eyebrow drawing. Shape of the eyebrows is calculated according to the golden intersection (phi 1.618) and face morphology. The PhiBrow consultation is carried out at the start of the 1 hour 30 min initial treatment. At this stage, we discuss eyebrow Design and desired result.
The pigment is applied into the surface layer of the dermis using sterilised tools. The pigment is chosen so to match the natural hair or eyebrows’ colour.
Symmetry is achieved through PhiBrows application and it is calculated while the clients’ eyes are closed because in that way mimetic muscles that can affect eyebrows’ symmetry are relaxed.
Strokes are always drawn in the direction of natural hairs’ growth to achieve hyper-realistic look. Treatment is performed with disposable sterile tools (PhiBrush), and pigments are produced in accordance with the highest standards (PhiBrows microblading pigments).
The healing is fully completed after 28 days and the client will come back in for a mandatory 1hr top up appointment. This is when we perform an obligatory addition of the pigment that has been lost, or for most, to refresh and perfect the brows. With problematic and oily skins, this may require additional sessions.
The success of the treatment depends on the:
All of these factors are out of the artist’s control, so any possibility to provide guarantees for the treatment is excluded. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or undergoing chemo the treatment cannot be carried out.
