A Day in the Life of Karen Betts

A Day in the Life of Karen Betts

In Go Glam

Back in December the Guru & Go team caught up with leading business woman and beauty industry expert Karen Betts to find out everything there is to know about eyebrows. Karen made her debut on the site with her first article discussing the history of brows, her trend predictions for 2017, Permanent Eyebrow Tattooing and of course, Microblading. The article was one of our most read here at G&G so we decided to delve a little further into the ‘Queen of Brows’ and discover a day in the Life of Karen Betts!

As many of you will know, Karen is one of most highly-respected permanent cosmetics and microblading artist in the country. Not only does she run four highly successful beauty businesses but she also dedicates as much time as possible to her charity work, something that she has always been very passionate about. Watch the video to discover what it’s like to be at the helm of a beauty empire and see first-hand the difference medical tattooing can make to people’s lives.

    This is why eyebrows are my favourite part of the face – they can totally transform a person. I love that they come in different shapes and sizes.

    I’m currently debating whether to have my brows micro bladed myself.

    Karen is so inspiring, I love that she has dedicated so much time and effort to charity work.
