Permanent makeup, also known as cosmetic tattooing, has come a long way in recent years. Microblading is the method done with a disposable hand tool to create individual strokes resembling hairs. This procedure is ideal if you are seeking natural-looking eyebrows. If you have very oily skin, be aware that the individual strokes can blur and result in more of a softened, filled-in look. Please have realistic expectations of the end result.
Ombre powder/machine shading is done with a tattoo machine and uses disposable cartridges. This can be used on all skin types but is ideal for clients with oily skin.
Microshading is the best of both worlds and includes strokes in the front of the brow while a machine is used for a softer, filled-in look gradually throughout the rest of the eyebrow.
All permanent makeup methods consist of TWO appointments, no less than 8 weeks apart.
The process begins with consent forms, in-depth consultation, and photos are taken. I will map out the shape of your new eyebrows and get your approval. The color and shape of the brows are custom designed to each individual but remember...eyebrows are sisters, not twins!! Our faces are not completely symmetrical so our eyebrows should not be either. My goal is to achieve balance and get your brows as close to perfect as possible.
Once we have agreed upon the color and shape, I will apply a topical anesthetic so you can be comfortable during the procedure. This numbing cream will also be reapplied during the procedure. I will then implant the body art pigments into your skin using either the microblading hand tool or tattoo machine. Traditional tattoo ink is not used.
After the procedure, an after-care cream will be applied and you will receive a printed version of your after-care instructions. The second appointment, known as the Perfection Appointment, will be scheduled for no sooner than 8 weeks. If you still need another session for optimal results, additional charges will apply.
A yearly Color Boost is recommended to ensure the ideal shape and that the color looks fresh.
It is important to note that individual results vary. Skin type, pre-existing conditions, skincare routine, proper after-care, and other factors can cause different results. If you are a smoker or are frequently in the sun without sunblock, the pigment will fade faster. If you are iron deficient or anemic, your pigment will fade faster and you may experience more bleeding/bruising. Please read through the Pre-Care and Post-Care procedures before booking an appointment.

Deposits are 100% non-refundable and will go towards your permanent makeup service. We have a firm 48 hour cancellation/rescheduling policy. If you cancel your appointment, you forfeit your deposit. An additional booking fee will be required if you have canceled and need to schedule. However, you may reschedule your appointment without forfeiting your deposit as long as 48 hours notice has been given.
If 2 appointments are missed, payment for services in full are required before the procedure. Any client that does not show for an appointment will forfeit their deposit and need to pay for all future services in full, prior to their appointment. If you are more than 15 minutes late, you will be considered a no-show and forfeit your deposit. While I understand unforeseen circumstances arise, it effects me as well as other clients.
