Princessbrows is an eyebrow and lash grooming salon that is stopping smudged makeup in its tracks. With its semi-permanent makeup treatments, you can expect immediate results without the hassle. The G.E.L. Lashes treatment is a keratin lash lift treatment which nourishes and protects your own lashes and adds in an extra pigment infusion which darkens the lashes to give you a mascara look. Best of all, it’s fairly natural, so it won’t damage your natural eyelashes. On top of lash treatments, Princessbrows also offers microblading to give you sculpted, finished brows, and semi-permanent concealer to minimise dark circles and imperfections.
