What is microblading?
Microblading is a very delicate technique, filling in the bald spots with strokes that mimic hair, that will give very natural results!
This technique is recommended for clients with bald spots and have normal to dry skin. Clients with sensitive skin, bruise easily and bleed easily are not good candidates for microblading. Microblading is considered semi-permanent makeup and not a tattoo due to the durability and ink composition.

What is Powdered iBROWS?

What is a Kissable Lips or Lip Tinting ?
Permanent Makeup for your lips.
This technique enhances and brings back the natural pinkish color of your lips, giving the appearance of plump and healthier lips. Over time our lips lose that vibrance and this technique brings it back!

What is the difference between
Lash Enhancement and Eyeliner?
Lash enhancement is discrete and very natural, the line is created on the upper lash line and can be done on the bottom as well, providing an illusion of fuller lashes. Eyeliner is thicker and more dramatic, it’s more of a makeup effect.
What is Mapping?
Where numbers meet art! Mapping is the technique that we use to draw your eyebrows and is based on bone structure and facial features. With our expert technique and your feedback together we build a shape that best suits you!

We currently work with an international ink brand specializing in brunette,

Are virtual consultations as effective as in-person?
Yes! Virtual consultation is the most popular, we just require you to send us two pictures (1 full face picture and 1 picture of one eyebrow) with good light and no makeup on the eyebrow area prior to your virtual consultation. Clients that have had a previous procedure done on their eyebrows with a different technician must have the consultation in person. All consultations are free!
If the virtual consultation is for eyeliner or lip tinting, no picture is required.

Does it hurt?
Eyebrows: Numbing cream is applied before and during the procedure, most clients describe as pressure vs. pain. After the procedure is completed it feels more like a mild sunburn for the first couple of hours.
Eyeliner: A quick back and forth with the needle is done to create micro channels so the topical anesthetic can be effective. Most clients describe as a mild stinging sensation which only lasts less than 2 minutes after that numbing cream is applied.

Avoid products for skin care touching the eyebrow area. SPF is ok!
