With Olympic fever sweeping the nation, there’s never been a better time to channel your inner-sportswoman. And with an array of Olympic treasures who triumph in both glamour and athletic ability, there’s a whole host of inspiration out there on the pitch.
However, a recent article in the Daily Mail touched upon a common complaint of these athletes: having to be camera ready just moments after competing. American swimmer Natalie Coughlin, who has won an astonishing twenty one gold medals in her career, says: “I don’t wear make-up when I compete, it’s an unusual situation but it forces me to focus on skin and well-groomed brows.” A fan of both eye-liner and mascara, such products are ‘don’ts’ when competing as they’ll run in the water.
So, if all this Olympic joviality has inspired you to indulge in a bit of sport on the side, or if you’re a more serious sportswoman who wants to swim the channel, run the marathon or conquer the cross-country, without sacrificing in the style stakes, help is at hand.
Enter the Nouveau Beauty Group whose revolutionary treatments and techniques add a touch of subtle glamour, whether you’re running, rowing or racing in the relay.
Jade Johnson, a two-time Olympic medallist in long-jump, is a huge fan of Karen Betts’ eyebrow tattooing. As the UK’s leading Permanent Cosmetics practitioner, her unique techniques when it comes to tattooing eyebrows has earned her an abundance of fans worldwide. Jade says:
“I'm an Olympic athlete but I'm also a woman and LOVE to be feminine. I love make up, lashes, and getting my hair looking good on and off the track. I especially love getting my eyebrows done by Karen. I have to admit I'm obsessed with the look of perfect brows and Karen is the BEST at achieving perfection!"
