  • What is Powder Ombre?
    Powder Ombre’ is done with a permanent makeup pen/machine. This look goes from light and soft at the bulb of the brow and gradually darkens towards the tail. Using the pen makes the powder look super even using shading techniques. We achieve an ombre’ affect using pigment colors to build the brow color to give that soft powdery look. Clients that have full amount of hair that simply want definition, or that prefer a natural makeup look will like this powder affect. Powder ombre’ lasts 2-2.5 years with suggested annual color boost.
  • How long does it last?
    Clients skin type and lifestyle play a HUGE role when it comes to longevity of treatment. Typically Mircroblading can last 1-2 years (skin type plays a huge role) powder ombre can last 2-3 years. All permanent makeup is suggested to have a yearly touch ups (between 12-18 months) to refresh color.
  • How often will I need a touch up
    Since my clients most likely wont have previous pigment on their skin, a touch up or color boost is suggested and included with the first appointment. After your initial appointment it is highly suggested to have them touched up every year (between 12-18 months after your initial appointment). If you choose not to touch them up yearly, after 2 years its considered a full session.
  • How long is my first brow session?
    Having permanet makeup done takes about 2.5- 3 hours sometimes a little longer. Touch ups take around half the time depending on retention and how much we added. Please give yourself the FULL amount of time. i do not rush my appointments at ANY cost so please do me a favour and block out the proper amount of time for treatment!
  • Can I have microblading or powder brows done if I have permanent makeup done already?
    This depends completely on the client, if you have faded permanent makeup then microblading can be performed over the top. If it is dark and crisp permanent makeup it may need to be faded or removed to have anything over the top show up. If you want to see if your eligible, email me with a picture of your permanent makeup and when you had it done.

    No, please do not shave, we want to see the shape and perfect them. I use what brow hair my client has as a guide for what they should have.

  • What is Lip Blush
    It is a lip tattoo that enhances and defines your lips. It can help enhance and even out natural color, or add color if you are lacking any pigment.

No laser or electrolysis on or around the treatment area one week prior to procedure. No Botox or fillers in the procedure area less than one week prior.

  • How long does it last
    Results will always vary from person to person, after your initial session and the touch up, your results should last between 2-5 years. Additional touch ups may be required depending on the person and look desired. Permanent makeup ink is not the same as body art ink, and by design it does not last as long as body art ink.
  • What to expect!
    There will be moderate swelling, redness and bruising for the first 5 days. Apply a Ziploc bag filled with water and ice for no more than 15 minutes at a time to reduce swelling. During the initial healing period, there should be minimal scabbing or flaking of the skin. If there is scabbing or flaking, do not pick, and allow the scab or dry skin to come off on its own. Expect the color to eventually lighten by up to 40% once the healing process is complete. Color may appear uneven at different stages of healing. Be patient. This is a process that does not yield immediate results.
