“I love my job!”
Christine first entered the world of make-up artistry in 2006 when she trained in make-up and hair for film, tv, and fashion at Delamar Academy in London. She worked as a Make-up Artist for 8 years, and was one of the first people to bring eyelash extensions and HD Brows to Edinburgh, before deciding to venture into the field of semi-permanent make-up in 2014. What was originally meant to be just another string to her bow soon took over and now providing semi-permanet brow, eye and lip treatments for clients is what she does full-time.
In 2017, she took another big step by accrediting her first semi-permanent make-up course and began teaching students from all walks of life the art of creating beautiful semi-permanent brows. Following on from a successful first year, she has now accredited courses for eyeliner and lips as well.
“Artistry brought to life”
Christine knew Bekki for a few years… first as a very talented Make-up Artist (pssst… she’s made up Harry from One Direction!!) and then as a Semi-Permanent Make-up student who took Christine’s Beginners Course in October 2017. Bekki took to SPMU quicker than most and was quickly up and running with her SPMU business, creating stunning brows for lots of beautiful ladies. However, just as Bekki was looking to join a more supportive work environment, Christine was looking for someone to bring into the studio to help ease the presure of a packed client list and reduce the sometimes lengthly wait for an appointment. The timing was perfect and so Bekki joined Christine Alison SPMU as an Elite artist in December 2018 and the rest is history as they say.
After seeing first hand how transforming a good semi-permanent brow can be to someone, Bekki’s natural artistic abilities (she’s a proper artist on canvas as well as faces!) began pulling her towards the paramedical and restorative side of permanent make-up. Although permanent make-up is best known for brows, liner and lips, it can also help men and womento disguise hair loss as well as help restore the look of areola’s that have been affected by breast surgery. Bekki now offers both these treatments at the studio and we are thrilled to be able to offer such life altering treatments.
