Nurse Moran – Melbourne
As a theatre nurse working with Cosmetic Surgeons, I have seen a lot of patients that have had Permanent Makeup done. As I was always interested in having my own Permanent Makeup I started asking the patients with the best work who had applied theirs, and I kept hearing the same name. Karen Norris Treloar. Without exception all the work that I saw on my patients that was superior to the others was Karen’s. So I went ahead and booked in. I was not only happy with the results, it was so nice to be treated with such professionalism. Thanks Karen, I love my Permanent Makeup.

I first met Karen approx 14 years ago when she first did my Permanent Makeup. I originally had my eyebrows done and then went on to have my lips and eyeliner done. I love what Karen has done with my makeup. I feel so confident and fresh. Karen’s patience and advice was so helpful. I have kept in touch with Karen over the years and have recently had my eyebrows touched up. I highly recommend Karens work.

I searched the internet thoroughly and found that Karen from Face The Art, came up trumps with her qualifications, so I booked in to see her to have my permanent makeup done. Not only was Karen highly qualified, she was professional, patient, kind, compassionate and thorough. Karen went through every detail of the procedure with me and spent as much time as I needed to feel comfortable. I have to say the anaesthetic worked a treat and I am thrilled with the results. Thanks Karen

I completed my Foundation Course in Permanent Makeup with Face The Art, and was truly impressed. Karen was very generous in sharing her broad experience in all areas of her profession. I received thorough theoretical and hands on training. I finished feeling very confident and received a full manual and a well equipped starter kit to get me going.
