Permanent makeup appointments take anywhere from 1-3 hours (depending on the service being performed), though the majority of this time is spent prepping for your service.

First we will discuss your “wish list” in terms of shape, style, and color. YOU are an active participant in this process. I welcome you to share any photos that showcase what you want, and be candid about what you don’t want. I will make recommendations on design based on your face shape, age, skin texture, hair color, and undertone, but ultimately I am here to make YOUR dreams a reality.

Next, I will have you fill out new-client forms and pose for “before” pictures. Then I will apply numbing cream that will sit on the area for 20 minutes. You can use this time to snack, grab a beverage, or take a nap; meanwhile, I’ll be setting up my sterile workstation.

Once all of the above prep work is finished, we can get started! I will begin by mapping out your new brows, lips, eyeliner, or freckles. “Mapping” means that I use the measurements of your own face to create an outline that suites your unique features. You will review the outline and make any tweaks to the shape and size before anything permanent begins. Once the outline is approved by you, the cosmetic tattooing begins. Pigment (ink) will be gently implanted using either a small permanent makeup machine, or a hand tool for microblading. You will be numbed repeatedly throughout the service to ensure your constant comfort.
