Just to Touch Base on the Basics

The procedures that are the most requested by my clients are the basics; brows, eyeliner and lips. But that does not mean that I have relaxed. I continuously look for ways to improve my practice and provide the most natural look for my clients. I have searched and studied many concepts necessary to bring subtlety to the application of permanent makeup. Makeup isn’t blotches of color patched on the face, but shading applied with subtlety to give the illusion of contour and shape.
With this end in mind I have incorporated the study of the nature of beauty and face shapes into my artistry. There are three important aspects to beauty; symmetry, clear skin, and fairness of features. The more symmetrical a face is, the more attractive it seems to us. So even though fads come and go, timeless symmetrical beauty found by the golden ratio proves enduring.
Another area of study has been the artistic application of makeup for each face type. This is the subtle application of makeup to give the face the illusion of symmetry and proportion, associated with the concept of timeless beauty. All this knowledge is applied to my artistic application of permanent makeup, even when it seems to be “just the basics.”

Eye Highlighting

If you have dark sunken eyes this procedure will help lighten and brighten. It highlights the upper eyelids and evens the skin tone almost like a concealer does. Eye Highlighting brings youthfulness and symmetry to your face by making your eyes appear larger and farther apart. Another one of the many techniques I use to help you look naturally beautiful. This is a procedure that can only be done on lighter skin types. Come in for a consultation and let’s see if it’s the right technique for you, because it’s amazing! For this newly developed technique the fee is $120.

Powder and Hair Stroke Brows

A powder finished brow has the look of a soft shadowed color applied into the brow shape area. It is less stark than a traditional old fashioned tattooed brow. What is nice is that it can stand alone, or have hair strokes added for texture and a more natural appearance. This technique can be done over existing permanent makeup to soften the brow shape. This technique will modernize the brow look you already have.

Permanent Makeup and Tattoo Removal

I have many clients who came to me with work previously done by other artists. Some of these have misshapen brows, eyeliner or lips. Most of the time I can correct the shape or color with slight modifications. Other times I have to camouflage the wrongly placed area. And now, with my new techniques I have a way to actually pull the color out of the skin!
The removal product is implanted into the skin just like the original pigment or ink. The product adheres to the molecule and lifts it to the surface to exfoliate off. It works on permanent makeup pigments and tattoo inks. I have seen some amazing results with this technique. The prices vary by procedure, and you can call or go to my website at for specific pricing.

Skin Rejuvenation and Wrinkle Needling

Skin Needling or Wrinkle Needling, also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a unique process that stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. Wrinkles are areas of elastin that are “bound up” and held into the form of a crease. It restricts the blood supply to the area. The needle repair increases the blood supply to the treated area which brings an abundance of collagen and elastin to the spot. This plumps the area and creates a softer, more subtle appearance to wrinkles, acne scars, chicken pox scars and other depressed areas.
Also the same technique works on surgical scars, stretch marks and dark spots as well. You will see remarkable improvements in your skin; it becomes smooth, tight and more youthful. Since your own body does the repair it will last longer than artificial fillers. Most results last 3 to 5 years. These procedures require a process and depending on the outcome needed, it can take 1- 4 visits. The prices vary by areas to be done and you can call or go to my website at for specific pricing.

Get Airbrush Makeup for Holiday Parties

Airbrush makeup lasts ALL DAY LONG! One application is all it takes to have a beautiful face for any special occasion. Airbrush makeup is water resistant and will not smudge with light touching. It can be applied on anyone, even men! It’s also hypoallergenic and sanitary.
A fine mist of foundation is sprayed with a small air compressor gently covering the skin, to give the appearance of a flawless complexion. This mist covers the skin lightly allowing the skin to breath, looking more natural and not exaggerating your pores. Airbrush makeup will leave your skin feeling light, not “cakey”.
Airbrush makeup has been used by celebrities in Hollywood and the fashion  industry for years to create the flawless makeup looks you see in magazines and even HDTV. Airbrush makeup creates a smooth, full coverage, long lasting application that looks and feels natural on your skin. Pricing starts at $35 for evening and prom makeup.
