The Queen actress confessed she has noticed a huge difference in her confidence after undergoing microblading. Speaking to the Daily Mail, she said; "I'll tell you what I had done recently which I love – I got my eyebrows tattooed. I was fed up of my brows barely being there and when one of my girlfriends got it done, I thought they looked great. They're very lightly and delicately done – but it means when I get up in the morning and I have no makeup on, at least I have eyebrows."
