WHAT IS BROW PERMANENT MAKEUP?
There are a couple different options when it comes to permanent makeup for your eyebrows; microblading, powder brows and/or a combination of the two together. How we decide which is best for your brows is with a complimentary consultation discussing your current natural brow shape and color, skin type and desired outcome.
It is a procedure that creates very fine hair-like strokes with a small tool made of several tiny needles that deposits semi-permanent pigment into the skin. This service is for those looking to add definition to their brows. It is not suitable for oily skin. Touchups are required at one year to a year and a half.
Also known as shading, ombre brows, microshading. Becoming the more popular service, is a procedure that creates a makeup-like look with tiny dots creating a stipple/dotting effect. This makeup look-alike can range from very soft and light to a more dramatic, dense look. This service is for every skin type being that it is the gentlest technique. Powder brow lasts longer than microblading, touchups being at around two years on average.
Combination Brow- bringing both microblading and shading together creates a combination brow. This service allows for both hairstrokes and a makeup look to come together to make the brows have dimension with blending the two techniques for a real natural look.
LASH LIFT AND TINT
Lash Lifting (also known as lash perming) is a procedure that curls and lifts your natural lashes lasting for 6-8 weeks. It is a natural look and when adding tint and/or mascara, can greatly enhance your lashes. Lash Tinting is coloring the natural lashes with a black coloring dye to give the lashes a bolder, darker appearance.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Permanent Makeup Questions
WHAT IS THE PROCESS LIKE?
We start with a complimentary consultation prior to the two-session service. The consultation can be done in person or virtual. Once we decide which service is right for you, we set up the first session which is 2-3 hours. This includes pictures, mapping out your brows, going over the mapping, making sure we both agree on the shape, then the actual brow procedure and discussing aftercare. Session two is required and is done 6 weeks after the first which is a perfecting session touching up the color and to make sure we both love the shape, color and how they healed. Healing takes about 10-14 days.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Each person and service is different though, on average, a touchup is done between a year and two years depending which service you receive.
DOES IT HURT?
Everyone’s pain tolerance is different. A numbing agent is used throughout the service to ensure you are as comfortable as possible!
