Permanent Makeup 



Permanent Makeup (PMU), Cosmetic tattooing or micropigmentation are terms referring to a form of tattooing that involves implanting pigment into the skin for cosmetic purposes. PMU is a way to subtly enhance your natural beauty and make your facial features pop. It's an absolute confidence booster.

While called permanent most clients can expect results to fade completely overtime. On average PMU can last between 1-5 years. Lifestyle choices like smoking, getting lots of sun or using certain skincare products can lead to faster fading. Getting a touch-up after a couple of years and following aftercare instructions can keep your permanent makeup looking great for years. Certain skin types retain pigment better than others.



Powder brows are done using a technique that creates a soft makeup effect on the brows.  This soft and natural shading effect makes your brows look fuller and thicker!  Powder brows are a great option for a wide variety of people and are a great alternative to filling in your natural brows with makeup daily. Eyebrows are a very important facial feature that help frame our faces and convey emotion. Often brows can go overlooked due to overplucking, thinning hair, light-colored hair or having no hair. A beautiful set of brows can make a huge difference in your appearance!  

Lip blushing is done by faintly lining and then shading the lip tissue
. Lip blushing can cover scars, enhance the natural shape of your lips, add color and make your lips look fuller. It can be done to look very natural or more vibrant colors can be used to create bolder, brighter lips!  

Lash line enhancement refers to tattooing along the lash line. This really makes your eyes pop! It also makes your lashes look darker and thicker! Once I’ve mastered lash liner, I plan to offer top and bottom eyeliner as well!
