Will it hurt?
I take great care and patience to make sure that this experience is easy and comfortable. I use topical anesthetics designed specifically for permanent cosmetics. I am always checking in with my clients to make sure they are comfortable. Most say that this was so much easier than they anticipated.
How long does the procedure take?
Though each person is different, it usually takes around 30 minutes for each area and sometimes less.
Can I do more than one area at a time?
Of course! In fact, most clients choose to do multiple areas in one appointment. Since there is little discomfort and short healing times for each procedure, it is easiest to do the treatments all at once. Also, if you do eyes, lips, and brows, I offer a small price break, so that it costs less to do multiple procedures at once.
Will I need someone to drive me?
You will be able to drive yourself after the treatment. If you are having eyeliner done and wear contacts, you must remove them before the treatment and during the healing process (3-4 days). For these clients, we suggest you bring glasses for your drive home.
How long will it take to heal?
The healing process is very short and easy. Each area is a little different, but all three areas heal within a week.
Will I have to schedule frequent follow-up appointments?
We prefer that our clients come in for a second treatment 6-8 weeks after the first treatment. This promotes a longer lasting result. After the two treatments, most clients enjoy their beautiful makeup for 3-4 years and some longer. The length of time the color lasts depends on sun-exposure, body chemistry and what you put on your skin.
Will I still be able to wear regular cosmetics?
Yes! You may wear any cosmetics over what we do. During the day, you feel and look beautiful with your permanent makeup, and if you decide to go out with the girls, you can add however much you want! I only do a natural look, that way you can add and dramatize your makeup to your liking. This gives you the freedom to look good all the time and dress up for those special occasions.
What is your style of permanent makeup?
I do a natural look. It softly frames your face and your features. I take a conservative approach to highlight your natural beauty. My goal is for you to like what you see in the mirror after you wake up and for you to start your day with confidence. Natural-looking permanent makeup gives you confidence without the extra worry of having to reapply or fix topical makeup.
What do I look for when choosing an artist?
It is important to pick the right artist for you. In choosing a permanent makeup artist, you need to look at their before and after photos. It is important to make sure that this is actually the work of this artist. Seeing the artist’s actual work will give you an idea of what to expect for yourself, and whether this style suits you. During consultation, you should feel confident about your artist and always honor your instincts. Looking at websites, photos, reading reviews, and word-of-mouth suggestions are all good ways to find a reputable artist.
