Natural, Permanent Makeup or Micro Blading
Are those eyebrows real? Sometimes it can be difficult to tell if someone’s eyebrows, eyeliner, and luscious lip color are natural, or drawn on. Tattooing with permanent makeup, or a micro blading technique has given many people a wonderful solution to those gaps of missing hairs while enhancing their natural color that seems to be fading away. Permanent Makeup adds a fresher appearance that doesn’t wipe away which allows you more time & money freedom.
Can you imagine not having to spend large amounts of time applying your makeup, and being so confident in how you look throughout your day that you don’t need mirrors?
This is exactly why I searched out Permanent Makeup over 25 years ago. I wanted to enhance my appearance with makeup that lasted longer than the normal day to day powders, and pencils.
Choosing to have Permanent Makeup was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! This gave me the freedom, and confidence of knowing my makeup looked as vibrant, and fresh 10 hours later; as it did when I first put it on that morning!
Permanent Makeup has also been referred to as Permanent Cosmetics, Micro pigmentation, Cosmetic Tattooing, and Micro Blading. The term Permanent Makeup simply means that a skilled technician creates a change in a persons physical appearance by using a tattoo needle to place pigment into the dermis layer of the skin. This technique is used to enhance one’s appearance while minimizing the daily application of conventional makeup.
Women experience many changes throughout the different stages of their lives. A woman in her 20’s and 30’s may want to add a little more thickness, or dimension to her brows, while women in their 40’s on up are wanting more of a lift, and to draw their missing tails back in.
It has been the desire of women for centuries to keep their makeup lasting longer without smearing and reapplying throughout the day. It is comforting to know that as we go through these transitional years we can modify with refresher appointments to what our current needs are. This also allows us to make the adjustments needed according to what is happening with our skin due to medication, illnesses, stress and other factors.
How does permanent makeup help you to have a more youthful appearance? With the skilled eye of your technician, she can replace missing hairs from the brows, add density to a thinning eyelash line, and bring back your lips that have faded away. These are very specific techniques that will help you to have a more youthful appearance.
Strategically choosing colors that work along with your own natural pigment is vital to a successful outcome. Properly placed eyeliner makes your lashes look fuller, and your eyes appear brighter. While simulated hair strokes in the brow line help frame and finish the eyes; and finally bringing back that missing lip line, and color to your lips all play a significant role in enhancing your overall appearance.
Women love the idea of not having to draw their brows on, and wandering if they have gotten them even. Brows drawn incorrectly can add years to an individual giving the illusion that the brow bone has drooped. While a brow that is intricately placed will lift, and erase years.
Since the ancient times women have been applying makeup to accentuate their eyes. Wanting eyeliner that won’t run, smear, or clump in the corners causing them to continually look in the mirror throughout the day. When eyeliner is placed properly it helps to lift the eyelids, and bring vibrancy back to your natural eye color. It helps lashes to appear thicker & fuller. Permanent eyeliner can also prevent wrinkles because your not fussing, and pulling at the skin around the eyes. The makeup stays in place, allowing the eyeliner to appear freshly applied without smears.
Now you can finally have Color & definition to those pale lips! Women often comment on how their lips are the same color as their face, and they feel like it ages them. Another complaint is when they use lip sticks they bleed and look feathered instead of having a crisp lip line. Lips go through a lot of movement in a day, and when we are talking, we want to capture our audience with smooth looking lips that have a natural brightness to them.

The art of applying makeup under the skin and creating something that looks natural can give an overall fresher appearance. Procedures and visits may vary. Most procedures take an average of two hours. Your preferred technique and results will be determined during your consultation.
These artisan techniques are also known as permanent cosmetics, micro-pigmentation, and cosmetic tattooing. Which means the process of placing pigment just beneath the epidermis of the skin.
It has been a wonderful adventure gathering the information together to implement this art form for thousands of clients while traveling around the country to explore both the medical, and the different artistic approaches of applying permanent makeup for over 25 years. I prefer using advanced digital technology, and natural colored pigments with an extensive safety record. First applying a topical anesthetic for comfort, while utilizing the highest sanitation, and sterilization standards available. The effects of aging, surgeries, blue ray from consistent use of computers, iPads, cellular phones, and sun exposure may alter the pigment’s appearance over time. A refresher visit will be helpful in maintaining a more youthful appearance.
After performing thousands of procedures on many types of skin canvas’s, I have come to realize that no mater which technique is used when makeup is applied under the skin, factors may prohibit the longevity of the results.
Skin is a natural canvas, and no one is capable of determining exact outcomes. This is why it is referred to as an ART; and you want an expert in the industry to work on you. Different skin types, and skin conditions, as well as your maintenance program also determine the ultimate longevity of your procedure.
Refresher appointments vary according to each clients needs and concerns. Some prefer to return every few years to maintain a fresher appearance, while others return every 3-5 years to accommodate life changes.
