A make-up artist from Braunton is making a difference to ladies suffering from cancer, by offering free semi permanent makeup eyebrow treatments every month.

Tia Lee, started her career in Toni & Guy as a hairdresser at just 16 years old. She then went on to train in nails and makeup to give people treatments that would make them look and feel confident and beautiful.

She wanted to help people feel amazing but on a more permanent basis.

After a short break to have her beautiful daughter, Tia started her career in permanent makeup in September 2020 after completing intense training in Sussex with self-made multi-award-winning businesswoman Katy Jobbins, who has appeared on the Prime Time hit Channel 5 TV show, ‘Rich House, Poor House,’ who also offers many free treatments to cancer sufferers.

The 21-year-old offers permanent eyeliner, lip and eyebrow make-up including for people, such as cancer patients, who have lost hair through illness.

Tia says: “For people suffering from hair loss, having their eyebrows done is a big deal and being able to offer that makes a huge difference to their lives. Their reactions at the end of the procedure are often overwhelming and many of them have tears of happiness at the end.”

With cancer affecting so many people, including Tia’s close family members, Tia has seen first-hand, the pain it brings to not only the person suffering but their friends and family also. As a result, and to give back to her local community, she is offering every single cancer patient who has lost their hair, their eyebrows permanently applied by herself, a professional permanent makeup artist for free.

She states: “Once you have undergone cancer treatments, not only have you been through so much trauma, you have most likely lost your hair. This can make us feel very vulnerable, cautious and not ourselves anymore. My goal is to show you that you are brave, strong and beautiful. Just because you may have lost your hair or may look different, you are still beautiful. You are a fighter. I have reached a point in my career and life that I feel is the perfect time for me give back and really take my level of commitment of making people feel beautiful and confident to the next level. I feel very privileged that the job I do, can help give people so much confidence and feel so beautiful.”

Tia offers two free appointments every month (worth up to £495) in the practice in Braunton, for people who have lost their brows due to cancer treatments.
