It was made famous around the world when Kim Kardashian posted a video of herself having it on Twitter, in preparation for the 2018 MET Gala and now the Aqua Gold Treatment is finally available in the UK.

Microbladed brows: All your questions answered

I was too scared to have my eyebrows microbladed for a long time. I was worried about being stuck with a shape or shade that didn’t look right and I just didn’t know very much about the microblading healing process (I mistakenly thought my eyebrows would completely scab over).

One thing I’ve never been to Spain for — or anywhere for that matter — is exercise, my usual consumption of sangria distracts from it.
