Hi! My name is Valentine Popa and I am a brow and lash expert. I'm here to take care of your brows and lashes by improving their appearance. I achieved certificates in modelling, stylization and painting the eyebrows with Brow Henna, Brow Lamination, Natural eyelash curling, Lash lamination and Vitamin lashbotox. These courses gave me the opportunity to discover the latest and popular beauty treatments, in offering me a lot more of new information, along with secrets and techniques to achieve the best results. Through these beauty treatments, I promote the natural and enhanced appearance of your brows and lashes. An instant change of your look and a long term results, using products of the highest quality. So don't hesitate, make an appointment to treat yourself, to relax and to enhance your new found look!
I never had ‘good’ brows growing up, which is why I am so obsessed with them now. The days of wearing a pan-stick foundation and not filling your brows in are well and truly over. My older sister was always ahead of the times and one year bought me Benefit Cosmetics ‘Brow Zings’ and that is when my life changed. I was fascinated at how having defined eyebrows changed the face and even created a slimmer looking face – who doesn’t want a slimmer face?!
So my purpose in life was set – help people who like me, had sparse, uneven, or no hair at all, regain their confidence by creating their very own ‘best brows’.
I have over 15 years of experience in the Brow and Beauty Industry and have devoted my career to building a formidable reputation here in Ireland and across Australia. I have worked in different locations all across the globe (I am a real jet-setter!). I have worked for brands such as Lancôme as a Make-up Artist, Benefit Cosmetics as a Brow Specialist and Make-up Artist Trainer, and Tarte Cosmetics as the Australian Make-up Artist, and Educator for Sephora.
I have worked in many different aspects of the industry like Miss Universe, fashion magazines such as IMAGE, Who, Woman’s Way and OK!
In my 6 years in Australia, I was lucky enough to work for one of the country’s leading Brow Companies specializing in cosmetic tattooing. I am globally accredited and have trained internationally with renowned Hollywood make-up artists and Brow Stylists. I am always looking for the next brow trend and I am constantly updating my skills and knowledge to be the BEST in the business.
No single brow shape fits all, and with my personal consultation process, we will work on creating your ‘best brow’ together. I appreciate everyone’s natural facial features and create the brow to suit their assets and the client’s desires. Some women can simply rehabilitate their natural brows into a wonderfully defined shape, while others may like to consider the convenience of semi-permanent make-up using Feather-Touch Brow Tattooing or Mist Tattooing.
My mission is to create beautiful, natural-looking brows for everyone.
I look forward to meeting you, and together, let’s go on a new and amazing Brow Journey.
