Hi, I’d like to introduce myself…

Talya Caldecourt Permanent Makeup Specialist

Talya Caldecourt
Arch Permanent Makeup

I am a fully qualified permanent makeup technician and have started my own business, based in Smart Extensions in Hassocks, near Brighton.

I have always been very passionate about art which led me to study and gain a diploma in Art Foundation at City College Brighton and Hove.

Since I enjoyed working with precision and detail, after my course I decided to transfer these skills and train in permanent makeup.

When drawing or painting, I take measured actions, working until I am happy with the final outcome. This routine has fed into my approach to permanent makeup, allowing me to add some creativity, picture the final result and work to achieve it.
Together with each client, we will choose the shape and colour until it’s exactly what you want. All decisions are made mutually to ensure that you are 100% happy with the outcome.

The procedures are almost pain free and worth every minute of your time you will save. You will no longer need to apply your makeup every morning and can wake up feeling confident every day.

Here’s a little about my training and experience in the industry…

I Use Only the Highest Quality Permanent Makeup Pigments on All My Clients…

ink-colour-pallet North East Permanent Makeup by Jo East

All the colour pigments that I use have been specifically formulated through years of research and development using only the finest grades of iron oxides and lakes, the same ingredients found in make-up giants

Lancome, Estee Lauder, Shiseido, Truco, Guerlain, MAC, Channel and Gucci

cosmetic products. All the pigments I use are medical grade and from the leading suppliers to the medical profession worldwide. All my pigments are hypoallergenic and are also designed for concealing imperfections on burns, scars, cancer, vitiligo, and cleft pallet patients. They have supreme colour concentration meaning less touch ups over the years.

All of my lip and eye pigments are fashioned after the top cosmetic manufacturer colours which remain true over the years. All the pigment bottles are sterile, heat sealed and tamper proof for your protection. Each one is encoded with lot numbers and expiration dates.

All pigment has a micron count of between 6 & 8 to the colour last in the skin. I carry the widest variety of natural permanent makeup colours which I custom blend for  Blondes, Brunettes & Women with Silver hair. I can also order designer colours for those wanting more dramatic colour results.

Your Consultation & Your New Look Designs


A consultation is recommended to everyone at least 12 hours before any treatment.
It is important to attend this so I can make sure you aren’t allergic to any of the products I will be using.

It also gives me time to get to know you, find out why you would like permanent makeup, your expectations, and most importantly, see what you are looking for in terms of shape and colour so you are 100% happy and comfortable.
During the consultation you will have the chance to ask me any questions about what will happen during the treatment to make you feel more at ease for when you next come in..


Procedure & Anti-Allergy Patch Test


The treatment takes two sessions to complete. After your first session your permanent makeup will look much darker and bold for up to 5 days.

This can be a shock for some people, but its completely normal and the colour will soften up to 70% to give a soft natural powdered look.
After this some people want to go darker or would like the shape tweaked a little so a second session is needed after 4-6 weeks.

Patch Test

All of the pigments I use are hypoallergenic, but I carry out a simple patch test during the consultation just to be as safe as possible.

If you are travelling long distance I can always send one in the post with instructions.
Providing you have no reaction after 12 hours, I will then book you in for the treatmen
