Eyebrows Created , Professional Nurse Service .
A bit about me:
Olive O Sullivan is a Registered Nurse and Eyebrow Artist, specialising in Eyebrow Microblading .
Olive trained as a Registered Nurse in 1980 in Barrington's Hospital Limerick.
She went onto work In Mentally Handicapped/Psychiatric nursing in St Raphael's Hospital Youghal for a year before moving to the UK to do her Midwifery training in Barking Hospital , in Londons East End.
From here she moved to Australia to a private plastic hospital in Sydney called St Lukes Hospital for 4 yrs, before returning to Ireland via Thailand/India/Nepal where she worked in various agencies to help the underprivileged .
Finally in 1990 Olive returned to Cork to the Bon Secours Hospital Cork where she practiced as a Labour Ward midwife for 11 yrs . specialising in Obstetric theatres for elective Deliveries and emergency on call .
Finally her hospital 'on hand' Nursing culminated in being the Private Practice Midwife in a clinical setting in Dr John Waterstones Obstetric and Fertility Clinic on Western Rd., Cork.
Once Olive started her family she became a Stay at home mother , working from her conservatory at home, where she trained as a Brow Artist to work plus be around for the needs of her family.
As time went on, the demand for eyebrow styling became more apparent, and as she became known as the person to 'go to for brows', she attracted all types of anomalies , from gappy brows, poorly defined brows patchy brows, sparse brows, sad and low set brows, over plucked brows right through to clients with NO brows due to brow loss due to Hormonal imbalance ( thyroid, postnatal, menopausal) , Brow loss due to stress and anxiety, Trichotillomania , Facial burns, post cancer brow loss, mishaps at the beautician or untrained/inexperienced hands and of course Alopecia.
The opportunity to train as a Microblader came 8 yrs ago where she obtained a very basic training, enhanced now with extra trainings twice per year with Master trainers in USA, Europe and Canada and developed her own unique style of eyebrow microblading that she is now well known for.
She specialise in an Eyebrow tattoo , using the Microblading method in her own BrowtiqueCork style and method of delivery.
This a unique service that uses a special hand tool , with tiny sharp needles that deliver strokes in the skin that mimic an eyebrow hair. Those little hairs over our eyes barely get noticed until they are either gone, sparse, gappy or at 2 different heights.e specialise in Microblading alone, and Blade and Shade (combination technique) for a more defined result when Microblading alone is not sufficient.
It is an 'Eyebrows Only" clinic. This is her area of expertise.
We are not an eyebrow service we are a REGISTERED NURSE eyebrow service.
Whilst a big chunk of our clientele are people who have cancer, we welcome ANYONE who has a brow anomaly.
People just like YOU!
Eyebrow Microblading is a tattoo. It is a treatment delivered by using a disposable hand tool , dipped into pigment and used to create lines that mimic hairstrokes in the skin thus creating a natural looking eyebrow.
It is less invasive than tattoos of yesteryear , as the strokes are implanted superficially just under the skin
Our ethos is to do one thing and do it well.
Brow Artistry entails a study of facial morphology, face shapes, eyebrow shaping and styling, and the 8 step Brows in High Def right through to Eyebrow tattoo reconstruction for people who have little or no eyebrows, and all in between.
Browtique doesn't just provide an Eyebrow tattoo treatment, we provide a safe experience executed with due diligence , as well as it being a service from a Registered Nurse.
Browtique's Registered Nurse will conduct a thorough screening with 7 page medical questionnaire and consent form so no treatment goes ahead until you meet the criteria of a safe delivery of the Microblading treatment.

'Excellent Service.. I really love Olive's approach and her knowledge of skin is second to none. I have extremely sensitive thin skin so I needed to be very confident in who I choose to do them. If your in anyway nervous or worried about getting them done..my advice just talk to Olive, she is very honest!! Im going back for a third/ fourth top up in coming months too as she knows my skin!'
'I think my story is quite common and I hope it gives someone reassurance to go for it. I have fair complexion and was never blessed with Brooke Shields eyebrows. I also over plucked in the 90's. I had Irish twins in my early 30's where I had post partum hair loss which wreaked havoc on my hair, not to mention my poor eyebrows which were pitiful by then. When I looked in the mirror I knew my lack of eyebrows was aging me and I was also tired of badly drawing them in. Who wants to go around with wonky eyebrows.... I saw a poster in my Dr's waiting room for Olive's Browtique. I did a bit of research on her and others and found that Olive seemed to really have a passion for it. Her standard of work was incomparable. Yes it was more expensive but my mother's words always ring in my ear "You get what you pay for". I booked a consultation and straight away I received a lengthy email informing me of the process but it was worth reading. Once I met Olive I was totally at ease. She was so understanding, sympathetic, professional and above all a perfectionist. Taking measurements of my face as my natural eyebrow made me look sad she knew the tweak to make them better but still natural. I couldn't believe the difference when I looked in the mirror once she'd finished. I looked years younger. I followed the healing steps to a T. I felt a million dollars every day just because now I had the natural looking, full eyebrows I always wanted that suited my face and my complexion. I felt I'd finally come into my own. I saved time every morning not having to draw on eyebrows. My "face" was already done. People complimented me but didn't know what it was. But I do.
I always get my yearly top up, the refresh is great. I don't have to do it but I like the look once it's done. So if you're thinking about it, go for it you won't regret choosing Olive. She's the master at what she does. You can pick out inferior cheaper work a mile away. All the others are only in her shadow'
'I visited Browtique and Olive provided an excellent, safe and courteous service. Her attention to detail is very reassuring, ( especially with oncology patients ), resulting in gorgeous brows and a totally happy experience. See you soon Olive for my top up!'

'I have had the pleasure of working alongside Olive for the last year or more. We are part of a team of 5 ladies working to help people going through a cancer diagnosis... Helping Hands Cancer Support Team .
Olive who does the microblading, pre and post treatment...is just one of the most professional, caring , warm, compassionate people I have ever met. She is genuinely passionate about her clients and the service she provides.
We have yet to meet someone who doesn’t agree with this.
Olive also treats clients with alopecia or those who just want to enhance their brows '.

As a registered nurse, Olive's attention to detail, particularly in relation to health and hygiene are excellent. Along with being the nicest lady who will put you totally at ease before your treatment, you will be delighted with her work. I can not recommend Olive O'Sullivan highly enough, she's amazing!'
Susan Watson Pranic Healer.
'I had been following Olive on Browtique Cork for sometime trying to decide if microblading was right for me. So when I met Olive it really made the difference making the decision easy and so I booked in the consultation straight away.
She was friendly, supportive and also very professional and with her nursing background gave me full comfort that I was in good hands.
I’m waiting now for my top up session and can’t wait! The first went so well, the healing went better than expected and this was all about expectations and I knew exactly what to expect because Olive explains everything so very well.
I’m in the “faded” stage but from having no eyebrows at all this is great because I can see the shape and love it! And am adding pencil now so when the colour comes back through I’m already confident with them.
The only reason I didn’t get it done sooner is because I hadn’t heard about it before now!!
Thank you Olive x'
