Permanent Makeup
Application by Hand

When I first began doing permanent makeup in 1992, I applied it with a tattoo machine, which is the method used by most permanent makeup artists. In 1996 I became aware of the hand method of applying permanent makeup and learned this technique. My clients and I were so pleased with the gentleness and results of the hand method that since then it's the only technique I use.

Permanent makeup applied by hand can be as soft and natural or as defined as you want. I'm able to achieve many soft looks that you just can't get with a machine. The hand tools are sterile, individually packaged, and disposable so there is no chance of contamination. An allergy test is performed on each client although I've never heard of anyone reacting to these pigments. Many women get permanent makeup because they are allergic to conventional makeup.

The other benefit of the hand method are that it is WAY MORE COMFORTABLE for you. When I'm doing eyeliner, your eyes are closed the whole time.

"I have always believed that anything you can do to make yourself look and feel better is well worth it. After all, it's not whether you win or lose -- it's how you look when you're playing the game!"

Eyebrows
and Eyeliner

Eyebrows done by hand with permanent makeup look like natural perfect eyebrows, not like a tattoo of an eyebrow.

First I sit down with you and we choose a color together. I numb the area with a topical anesthetic, and use an eyebrow pencil to draw in the shape of the eyebrow so you can see just how it will look. I'm very good at drawing beautiful brows based on what you want and the shape of your face.

When we get the exact shape you want, I will follow that outline exactly with the color you chose. There's no guessing involved in the way I do permanent makeup. You know before we start what color and what shape your eyebrows are going to be.

Permanent eyeliner is placed in your eyelashes, making them appear thicker and accentuating your eyes. I can make it very subtle, so that it looks like you have a lot more eyelashes, or I can make it look like actual eyeliner. Your eyes remain closed throughout the procedure. Most women choose black, black-brown, brown, charcoal or slate. I also have beautiful colors such as, navy, purple, blue, teal, green, and grey-green...the choice is yours!

Permanent Lip
liner and color

When I do a permanent lip enhancement, I can do more than just line the lips like many permanent makeup artists do. I can line the lips and also add color to the entire lip, so you get both definition and soft color. It doesn't have to look like lipstick; it can look like your lips are just the prettiest color, well defined and beautifully shaped. Then, you can wear any color lipstick you want to, but you don't have to! Of course, you can choose a brighter color if you want more of a lipstick look.

First I sit down with you and we choose a color. I have a lot of gorgeous lip colors. Then, after numbing the lips with a topical anesthetic I take a lipliner pencil and draw the shape of your lips. There are a lot of things we can do with lips; you can keep the shape they are, correct any asymmetry, or make them look a little fuller. When we are both satisfied with the shape you want, I will follow that outline exactly with the color of your choice.

The way that I apply permanent makeup, you don't have to be worried about how it will look because you know before we start what color and what shape your lips will be. So, whether you choose to just line your lips or fill them in as well, your lips will be beautiful, soft and flawless, every moment of every day!
