FAQ

WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is the practice of creating shallow cuts in the skin, which are then filled with pigment, to
mimic the appearance of real hair. These cuts are made with a “u blade”, which is a row of extremely fine
needles. This is a semi-permanent tattoo, which requires simple maintenance and occasional touch-ups.

 

WHAT IS POWDER BROWS?
Powder brows is a technique of permanent makeup that uses a machine to deposit a beautiful, soft dusting
of pigment in the skin. This brow style is perfect for oily, thick skin, and those who love the appearance
of a brow shaded in with makeup.

 

WHAT IS LIP BLUSH?
Have you ever wished your lips had more of a flushed, just-been-kissed look? Or perhaps your lips have a
naturally pale tone, and you want them to stand out more. Lip blush is the remedy! We create a
customized pigment tone for you, and deposit it gently into the lips to give them a naturally gorgeous new
glow.


WHAT IS A LASHLINE ENHANCEMENT?
This technique adds the perfect amount of definition to your lashline, providing a fresh pop to your face!
We deposit in a very fine line, unlike with full eyeliner, so you can still go without makeup with this
service.


WHAT IS AREOLA TATTOOING?
Most of us have at least one person in our lives who have battled breast cancer. In the case where a
mastectomy is the outcome, we lose our nipples to this treatment. We offer a very exciting, rewarding
service of adding back the areola and nipple with the artful application of tattoo! The goal is always to
create the most natural look possible. If you are interested in this service, please do book a consultation to
discuss.

DO I QUALIFY FOR PERMANENT MAKEUP?

Great question! While most are just fine to proceed with permanent makeup, certain conditions may
discount you from being a good candidate.


Please CONSULT prior to booking if you have previous permanent makeup (no matter how old or
faded), have oily skin, have any scars or skin conditions around the brow, if you are taking antibiotics, or
you are headstrong on a particular style and need to know if you have the right skin and brows for it.


We CANNOT work with you if you are pregnant (6 months postpartum is required with a 6 hour
pump-and-dump), undergoing chemotherapy (6 months at earliest), have psoriasis or eczema on the face,
are an insulin-dependent diabetic, are very tan/burnt, or you did not follow our pre care instructions.


DO I NEED A CONSULTATION FIRST?
Aside from the information above, we ask that you book a consultation if you are unsure about anything
at all. We are here to answer your questions! Never book an appointment if you feel uncertain about
moving forward with it.


HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY NEW PERMANENT MAKEUP?
After your appointment, you will receive step-by-step aftercare to follow! Please follow these precisely,
as they will provide you with the best possible healed results. Everything listed is there for good reason.
You will also be told of certain things to avoid, in order to preserve your new permanent makeup,
allowing you to wait longer in between touch-ups (these are on average every 1-2yrs).
