In the last 6 years i've had semi permantent brows at the hands of the BROW GURU Natalie Godefroy! I have so many positive comments from Men and Women about my 'perfect' brows. I get HD every 3 weeks also to keep them pristine. Natalie is so very talented, the only person I would let loose with a tattoo needle on my face! Amazing !!!

I feel like a new woman thanks to Natalie. I have had a permanent eye liner applied and am thrilled with the result. Although a little uncomfortable to begin with it soon passed and the result is amazing. Natalie is a true professional and 'Beauty Defined' is certainly a place to try. I shall now be booking up to have my eyebrows done - can't wait. Jenny Potter

I was recommended to use Beauty Defined for HD Brows, the results are excellent! Natalie put me at ease and explained in detail, everything that I needed to know and what will happen during the treatment. I wish I knew about Beauty Defined years ago!! If you're looking for a good company for HD Brows, I would highly recommend Beauty Defined.

An oasis of calm

What a find!! Natalie, it was great to meet you and your team who made me feel like we had known each other for years even though we had just met. I felt SO rejuvenated and pampered (I had forgotten what that felt like) during my Collagen Wave treatment. Because your enthusiasm and passion for what you do is so infectious, you made re realise I need more 'me' time! ...and whatever treatment you have you can discretely step into your car immediately outside and no-one can see you haven't got your face on 🙂

Beauty Defined should be your first port of call for your beauty needs I recently had permanent eyeliner done. It looks amazing, no more panda eyes for me! I had the most welcoming experience; the standard of customer service is second to none. The staff are outstandingly great at what they do. Ensuring you feel completely relaxed and at ease is a priority to them. They will go above and beyond to give you the most relaxing experience whilst you have your treatment. I would highly recommend Beauty Defined without hesitation. Thank you ladies!

Well...what can I say? This is the third time in five years that I've had eyebrows and liner permanently applied. The first time it was AMAZING, the second time it was equally AMAZING and the third time it was also AMAZING! A touch of olive green and black for my eyeliner made my green eyes look...wait for it...AMAZING! I'm a musician and I know how vital it is to be expressive in performance; the same applies equally to Natalie with her amazing creative skills. Thanks Natalie

Wow, what an amazing treatment, after just one of the three, my skin has improved to the point where even my husband noticed! Thanks Natalie.

Isabel Carlisleposted 10th May 2015
Lovely relaxed and friendly experience, Paige did a great job with my hands, recommended to lots of friends.

Sarah Holzmanposted 28th April 2015
I cannot thank Natalie and Paige enough for the FABULOUS job they have done with my IPL treatment. I have experience with previously unsuccessful hair removal treatments and hyper pigmentation. The level of care and expertise at Beauty Defined is amazing. In a few sessions I have had results that I didn’t think possible. I am olive skinned with dark hair and previously skeptical but I cannot recommend this treatment and Natalie’s Salon highly enough. I found this pain free with no after effects. With over 20 years nursing experience, I can assure anyone considering this treatment, that this is the place to have it done. The equipment, knowledge base and delivery of care is all state of the art. Permanent hair removal shouldn’t be life changing… But it is!! Thank you.

Karen Blockleyposted 10th April 2015
Love my HD eyebrows I had today by the lovely Paige Taylor. What a great relaxed atmosphere too. Thank you.

Jennifer Boyceposted 5th January 2015
I had my eye brows tattooed, and I am really pleased with the shape and colour. Would recommend this salon. Very clean and professional. Thank you so much.

Dani Harrisonposted 15th December 2014
IPL treatment has changed my life. Being of Italian descent I am naturally dark haired and  have had to wax or shave my legs from a very early age.  I laboriously shaved my legs for the last time before I had my first
IPL treatment I wouldn’t have believed it, but after only three treatments I can honestly say that there is no longer a need to wax my legs, and shaving what few fine  hairs are still there is a two minute job,
I can’t wait for the results once I have had a full course of treatments.  I am so pleased with the results on my lower leg that I have also commenced IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment on my face and after one treatment the results are so noticable, even my husband noticed ! I cannot recommend the Ellipse IPL treatment highly enough. Natalie and her team are professional and welcoming.

Angela Frostposted 14th December 2014
Just finishing the IPL treatments for permanent hair removal and pigmentation. From the  first treatment, which was painless, the difference was noticed by myself and friends and family. The girls are great being both
professional and friendly. I would certainly recommend it.

Jan Brownposted 17th August 2014
The minute I stepped into the salon it became a wonderful experience. All the staff were very professional, and Natalie was just lovely. She spent a lot of  time explaining the procedure and discussing colour, I am blonde
so didn’t want to go too dark. Also I am a very mature lady! On my follow up appointment I had a little more colour put in and now I am absolutely delighted with my eyebrows, and can’t get used to having a “face” without make up!! I can’t recommend Natalie highly enough, and I certainly look forward to future visits!

Julie Johnson posted 23rd May 2014
Natalie did a wonderful job of permanent makeup for both myself and my daughter .. We both work in Dental and Medical worlds and a professional clinically safe environment was paramount .. Natalie provided a truly professional service on every session and we are both delighted with the final result . I would highly recommend Natalie Thank You

Janey Cooksleyposted 18th May 2014
Beauty Defined absolutely rocks! I have been visiting Natalie for years and have always been impressed with the quality and professionalism. Having HD brows, LVL and fabulous semi permanant eyeliner has transformed my make up routine and really enhanced my features. Since being converted to the Dermaquest range and the various asthetic skin treatments my skin looks fresher, younger and radiant!

Liz Millingtonposted 3rd December 2013
As always it is the most wonderful experience with fantastic treatments and superb service! Natalie is very welcoming and enthusiastic with a wealth of experience and knowledge. Her collagen wave facials are one of the most effective anti- age treatments I’ve had – you can really see the difference afterwards. The Darphin facials by Lily are truly the most relaxing and fabulous facials ever. The facial massage part of the treatment is unbelievably amazing and I leave in an almost dreamlike state!! I now book them in regularly for de- stressing as much as for the skin care. Their advice and knowledge of the Darphin range is also superb and I can honestly say that after about 18 months of trips to Beauty Defined my skin has never looked better. I used to spend a lot of time and money flogging down to London for top name facials but there is really no need as all you need is in Market Harborough! Geraldine is also one of the most professional waxers I’ve ever been to and takes the art to a new level – I never knew there were so many types of waxes!! To sum it up – it really is a complete gem of salon so go and try it out!!

Mariya Bhatti posted 26th July 2013

My eyebrows aren’t the easiest- they are heavy and regrowth comes back quickly. I have been to countless threading salons I found over time my eyebrows were getting thinner and I ended up with two different shapes! So after some asking around I was recommended to visit Natalie for HD Brows. I’m glad to say that Natelie has really done a fantastic job and really has made my eyebrows look better than I ever imagined! I really want to thank Natelie for not only providing great customer
service but for always doing a perfect job. She has a real talent and is probably the only person I would trust with my eyebrows. In addition to this, I’ve been introduced to youngblood make up by the salon and it works wonders on my sensitive skin, I bought the Loose Base Foundation Powder yesterday and I already received compliments on how my skin glows. Thanks again to natelie for all the help and advice and I will be coming back for more treatments.

Karen Hornerposted 23rd June 2013

Natalie, thank you so much I love my permanent eyeliner you did a fantastic job. I simply wouldn’t trust anyone else other than you to do my permanent make up, you are a true professional. I love the fact that I can now go out without having to put on any eye make up (maybe just a little mascara). I would recommend you to everyone I know.

Carolyn Dexterposted 7th May 2013

I have just had permanent makeup done on my brows as I lost most of them due to an illness. I was worried before I went ahead as I didn’t want to look harsh or too fake and obvious. Natalie put my mind at rest and assured me that she would make them realistic using “brush strokes”. I am very pleased with the result and my friends and family have all commented that they could tell I had something done but couldn’t put their finger on it. I had to tell them and then they could
not believe how realistic they looked. Please do not let your age put you off. Its not the same as normal tatoos. I am 53 and will continue to have them done from now on.
Lin FarrowPosted 23rd March 2013

I absolutely love visiting Beauty Defined. From a young age I had plucked my eyebrows and over the years they have stopped growing and have become very fine. Using an eyebrow pencil was very tricky as I could not always get it straight and my brow was either too thick or too thin. I then heard that you could have your eyebrows tattoed,set about doing some research on the Internet and came across Beauty Defined.

Following a consultation with Natalie Godfrey I decided to have permanent makeup on my eyebrows and some eyeliner around my eyes. I am absolutely thrilled with the results, its money well spent and one of the best decisions I have ever made. Family and friends have commented how good my eyebrows and eyes look. I feel very different and would recommend a visit to Beauty Defined. They also do numerous other things and have some lovely skin products. I shall definitely be returning.
Thank you Natalie for your expertise and professionalism.

Joy MouldingPosted 11th March 2013

I have been having HD brows and pedicures for sometime and have been delighted with both. The girls are very kind and welcoming and very professional about their work. At the age of 67 I have just had permanent eye liner and LV lashes and I am so pleased with both. No more struggling to apply my eye liner and my eyes look so much better even if I do not wear eye shadow or mascara. Comes on ladies it’s never too late to look great. A big thank you to Natalie and her girls. Joy

Pauline GrovesPosted 18 February 2013

This was my second visit to Beauty Defined after having had permanent makeup on my eyebrows as mine were so sparse and I now have the shape I have always wanted. Natalie if a real expert and she really makes your feel relaxed. I have also had the Collagen Wave and I cannot wait until my next appointment. My skin feels wonderful and younger looking. Thanks Natalie.

Dawn Brown – Posted 28th January 2013

I had permanent HD brows and eyeliner done by Natalie. I am absolutely thrilled with both treatments and I would recommend it to anyone! Natalie is very talented and the results are amazing, wish I’d had it done sooner! 🙂 I’ve also had LVL lash & collagen wave treatments, highly recommend these too 🙂

Jessica OxleyPosted on 28th January 2013

I had semi permanent eyebrows and eyeliner done at beauty defined. I was quite nervous about having the treatment as i hadn’t had anything like it done before, but i had such sparse brows they needed doing! Natalie made me feel very comfortable and the treatment it’s self went very well. Natalie is a perfectionist so as I expected I now have beautiful brows and eyes! I used to spend ages putting on my make up, spent a fortune on eyebrow pencils/palettes, but now I don’t need to! As a working mum of two young children you can imagine the help of waking up and not needing to apply make up! I would highly recommend it.

Gail BellinghamPosted on September 17, 2012m 10.54am

Where do I start??? Natalie gave me the most amazing brows after years of bad waxing at other salons. I regularly have my HD brows at beauty defined. I also love the darphin facials by Lily. A real treat! The collagen wave is amazing and has made a big difference to the tightness of my skin, particularly the way it lifts the eyelid area. Beauty Defined has made reaching the age of 40 bearable! Big Thankyou!

Heather Logan  – Posted on July 15, 2012 2:55 pm

I have been having my hd eyebrows done at Beauty Defined for over a year now and I love them I would never go anywhere else. The salon is stylish and the staff are all amazing. I have recently tried the collagen wave facial which is the best facial I have ever had! I had so many compliments on my skin and my cheek bones were much more defined.

Margaret WilleyPosted on: Thursday 02nd of February 2012 at 04:54pm

I have had permanent makeup applied to both my eyebrows and eyeliner, and quite honestly it is the best thing I have ever done. Now I can go to the gym and not worry about my make up smudging.

Natalie is a brilliant therapist and I would recommend her to everyone.


Yvonne RobertsonPosted on: Monday 12th of December 2011 at 06:43pm

I have been looking for many years for someone I can trust enough to apply permanent make-up to my Brows, Eyes and lip. Not knowing anyone having had it done it is very difficult to put your trust in someone. I recently was told about Natalie from a friend that has H D Brows and I had a consultation with her. Natalie immediately put me at ease with the process and advised me of which procedures look most natural and would look best for me. I was so grateful for the advice and was most comfortable booking in for all three procedures to be done. I now have all of them done and I couldn’t be more happier with the results. I have the most amazing Eyebrows and am always being complemented on them. The lash enhancement gives my eyes a lovely wide awake look and was made (if possible) better by having LVL lashes. So impressed. My lips look fuller and are a lovely colour with a more pronounced and defined lip line. absolutely amazing. Asked if I’m happy…… I’m very very pleased. Thank you Natalie for your friendly professional nature. If it had not been for you, I would never had my make-up done. You are a true star


Anne CooperPosted on: Sunday 20th of November 2011 at 03:54pm

Wow!! What a difference my permanent make-up has made to me; very beautifully defined eyebrows and lash enhancer.  Natalie has done a fantastic job.  I have had many compliments from work colleagues and friends – ‘My goodness! It makes you look younger and frames your eyes beautifully!’ and ‘It looks so natural’, seems to be the consensus of opinion. Having gone through most of the last ten years with whispery and almost non-existent eyebrows, I look at myself in the mirror and, to be honest, can’t believe the transformation.  It has given me a much-needed boost in confidence – thank you Natalie.


CarolynPosted on: Friday 18th of November 2011 at 12:52pm

I have previously visited Nilam when she was originally in Luton and in Northampton but not the Milton Keynes salon.  I visited Natalie as she had been trained by Nilam so I felt reassured that she would be good.  She is!!  I have to admit to not being the easiest of clients due to my non stop watering eyes and constant blinking!  Natalie managed to cope admirably with both these quirks and my eye liner (top and bottom) now looks great.  I shall be revisiting in the New Year to have my eyebrows topped up as well.  Thank you Natalie.  Very professional.


RamonaPosted on: Wednesday 01st of June 2011 at 06:22pm

I just want to thank Natalie for the great job she’s done on my  eyebrows.They look so natural.I have already recommended her to my friends 🙂

Lynn CarringtonPosted on: Sunday 22nd of May 2011 at 07:13pm

I want to welcome all you ladies out there to the magic touch of Natalie, it takes a very artistic talent to not only transform your looks but to also give you much more confidence in how we look.  Natalie tatooed my brows after many years of penciling and how amazing they look!! They are a frame for your face.  Like all the testimonials say you will be delighter with Natalie’s art work she is one of the best… In my eyes the best….


Lucy ForryanPosted on: Wednesday 04th of May 2011 at 06:09pm

I spent many years penciling in my eyebrows and not being happy with them, I went to see Natalie after a recommendation, and oh how I wish Id have found her sooner, she has done such an amazing job with them Im over the moon, thank you so much. Natalie is extremely talented and I recommend her all the time, shes definately the best in the business.


Caroline KnowlesPosted on: Sunday 17th of April 2011 at 03:17pm

Semi Permanent eye make up is something I had dreamed of having for years, and so with my wedding swiftly approaching I decided to take the leap. I did a lot of research into qualified technicians and Natalie’s reviews outshone the rest. Having just received my top up application I can honestly say that the results were outstanding and definately worth it, I look forward to a make up free honeymoon! Thank you Natalie, a friendly professional service which I have no hesitation in recommending 🙂


Lucy HornPosted on: Thursday 10th of March 2011 at 05:22pm

After years of pencilling in my eyebrows and with my wedding approaching I decided to go to Natalie to have semi-permanent brow make-up and I can honestly say that it’s the best thing I have ever done. Natalie is so friendly and professional, and she did a really fantastic job! I’m so pleased with my new brows, they look so natural. I recommend her to anyone who will listen!


Kate JacksonPosted on: Thursday 03rd of March 2011 at 09:59am

My eye liner is always perfect, I’ve got more time in the mornings and my eyes appear larger all thanks to my permanent make-up treatment. Natalie is extremely professional and I would recommend whole heartedly.

Mia Posted on: Tuesday 15th of February 2011 at 02:23pm

Natalie has just done the most amazing permanent make up for me! I now have celebrity eyebrows and it has made a complete difference to how I look and feel. I’d been having HD for some time and loved the effect just after, but as it’s not a permanent fix you just don’t get the same results long term. I would highly recommend having this done – not only do my brows look great (at any time of day!) but I know that it is money well spent in having great brows all the time and not having to go back every few weeks for HD. And it doesn’t hurt! Natalie – thank you so much, I absolutely love the results. You are so professional at the work you do and its best to choose the best; I know I did!


Lesley TaylorPosted on: Wednesday 12th of January 2011 at 07:52pm

I had permanant eyeline done by Natalie and I can honestly say it is one of the best things I have ever had done, Natalie was very professional and totally put me at ease all the way through.  The procedure was painless and I am really pleased with the results, I would definatley recommend Natalie to anyone who is contemplating having this done.


Stephanie YoungPosted on: Tuesday 11th of January 2011 at 09:18am

I found Natalie online while I was looking for a better eyebrow solution. My eyebrow shape had been completely ruined through over plucking and waxing. I found Natalie to be very professional and very friendly from my first phone conversation with her. I decided to have the HD brow treatment and have been with Natalie for nearly a year now. Natalie always makes me feel like I am the only person that matters for the duration of my treatment, even though she is often busy. Natalie is very approachable and I often ask her opinion about other beauty products. The HD brow treatment is amazing, very natural looking and great looking brows from the very first treatment. I would recommend Natalie without hesitation. Thanks Natalie!


Caroline MarsalaPosted on: Tuesday 04th of January 2011 at 06:58pm

Natalie managed to make me look years younger and gave me a celebrity look without a knife in sight!I now where my hair off my face with confidence thanks to the amazing skill of Natalie’s semi permanent make-up art work on my eye brows. Caroline Northampton


Katie SummersPosted on: Tuesday 21st of December 2010 at 09:23pm

I have been a client of Beauty Defined for nearly a year. I have found Natalie to be both professional and friendly and I have always been happy with the wonderful job she does, my eyebrows look fantastic. I recommend her without hesitation. She is a perfectionist and I wouldn’t anywhere else. Thank you Nat xx

Lorraine HargravesPosted on: Thursday 28th of October 2010 at 06:02pm

Natalie did permanent makeup for my brows recently and they look really lovely.  I’d had them done a couple of years ago by someone else but they didn’t look as good as when Natalie worked her magic on them.

She’s extremely professional at all times, very friendly and caring and goes to great lengths to ensure the customer gets exactly the look they want.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.


Cheryl goodmanPosted on: Friday 20th of August 2010 at 02:12pm

I Was recommended to Natalie through a friend  who had her eyebrows permanently enhanced, I’m a mature lady and through over plucking over the years I didn’t have any eye brows left. I had consultation with Natalie and was shown what they would look like when finished, which I have to say was very impressive. Eventually I had them done on the 10th July 2010 and they are fantastic (don’t know why I didn’t have them done years ago as it isn’t painful and they look lovely.) I would highly recommend Natalie as she is professional, friendly and very helpful if you need follow-up advise.


MichaelPosted on: Wednesday 14th of July 2010 at 05:55pm

I didn’t expect to have such a nice experience, i had been looking for this eyebrow treatment for a while ever since i took my eyebrow piercing out which left a bald spot, i never knew that eyebrows can be an important feature on your face, i became very self conscious about it. Natalie is an angel, she didn’t just give me back my eyebrow, she gave me the confidence to look at people in the face again which is priceless. Thank u Nat X.


Maria Posted on: Thursday 08th of July 2010 at 03:50pm

What a star ! I had non exsistant eye brows before i met Natalie, now i have fantastic eyebrows. I have had many treatments with Natalie and i would highly recommend her. I cannot fault anything i have had done. It all looks amazing. Thanks so much x


Krissie BillinghamPosted on: Saturday 12th of June 2010 at 11:11am

Natalie Godefroy, is the 8th wonder of the world!!

I first met Natalie when she did my make-up at one of best friends weddings where I was the bridesmaid – she did an awesome job, and we both loved the makeup!

Since then, Natalie has been doing my HD brows and again has done a fantastic job, id never realised what a difference brows really make to your face!

Since the eyebrows, ive moved onto permanent makeup, and have had eye liner and lash enhancements. Natalie is such a perfectionish who is massively skilled at what she does, shes done a great job, with no pain at all…

I really enjoy my treatments with Natalie, its like visiting a friend she makes me feel so at ease and relaxed!

Thank you so much Nat

Victoria GoodwinPosted on: Thursday 20th of May 2010 at 09:57pm

I�ve always struggled to apply eyeliner really effectively and often got groggy eyes. Due to my upcoming wedding, I wanted to look my best and not worry about smudging. When I went to see Natalie she took time to listen to what I wanted and really made me feel at ease; she totally understood the look I wanted to achieve. On the day of the appointment I was very nervous but Natalie really helped me relax and put aside plenty of time. I followed Natalie�s aftercare instructions to the letter and within just a few days my eyes were completely healed and looked superb. Everyone was commenting on how fresh I looked and how my eyes really looked great.

I absolutely love my permanent eyeliner! Natalie did a fantastic job, and on my wedding day it made such a difference to my photos. To wake up every morning and be ready to go out with little effort is a massive bonus! My new husband loves my look and I can�t imagine not having them done now!


Debbie LamestaPosted on: Thursday 06th of May 2010 at 10:52am

Natalie made such a great job giving me eyebrows to be proud of that I have removed my fringe for the 1st time in years, thank you so much.


Emma WoodcockPosted on: Thursday 29th of April 2010 at 08:50am

I started having HD Brows done with Natalie and progressed to the permanent make-up after seeing the results on previous clients.  The finish is great, flawless and so natural looking that people notice something different, something fresher but don’t quite know what it is!  I got married recently and Natalie also did the make-up for the immediate wedding party including myself.  Once again, the finish was flawless and the photos look great – check out the bridal photos and see for yourself!


Sarah GordonPosted on: Wednesday 28th of April 2010 at 01:35pm

I’m not a make up wearer but when I got to 40 my lips seemed to disappear! I was worried I might look overdone but I was persuaded by a friend who had been to Natalie before to have a consultation and my lips looked wonderful! I booked in to have them done permanently and I have never looked back! I now have my brows and eyeliner permanently done and my face just looks ‘finished’ without being over done.All my friends tell me I’m looking well, I haven’t told them why!


AylaPosted on: Sunday 27th of September 2009 at 01:33pm

Natalie at Beauty Defined is, in short, absolutely fantastic.

I recently got married on the 12th September this year and she did my trial and makeup on the day, as well as 3 Bridesmaids and a flower girl.

The makeup was first class, everyone commented on how gorgeous it was and it photographed amazingly.

She also dis High Definition eyebrows which again, looked incredible and I am going back next week to get them tidied up!

And lastly, Natalie is such a lovely person that it was a pleasure having her be part of our day!
