What is microblading?
How much is Microblading?
Microblading is performed in two separate appointments. Prices vary depending on where you go. Remember because a price is cheaper doesn't mean its a good deal. It is important that you trust you're technicain and they are trained properly, this is your face after all and that's worth investing in. Currently my price is $450 which includes a free consult with brow shaping, and $150 for 6-8 week touch-up which is required for desired results, $100 to add shading for combo. All prices and promotions subject to change. $100 deposit due at booking

Why Is it necessary to do a 6-8 week touch up?
Every client heals differently and it is impossible to accurately predict how a pigment will be affected by a client’s undertones. Therefore the required (highly recommanded) touch-up is done 6 - 8 weeks after the first appointment. During the touch-up appointment, I will analyze how the skin received the pigment and will make any necessary corrections to color, shape and strokes. This appointment must be booked at the end of your first appointment.
How often do I need a touch up?
How long does it last?
This varies from person to person, everyone's results last a different amount of time. Microblading typically lasts 1-2 years, depending on skin type (normal, oily, dry). Skincare routines will also affect the lasting effect of the pigment such as those who tan, uses products with AHA or Glycolic Acid and routine peels. These types of resurfacing regimens will cause faster fading. Each individual's color retention within the skin will vary. To maintain the brows looking fresh, a touch up is suggested every 6-12 months.
Does it hurt?
Is it safe?
How long does it take to heal?
No down time is required after microblading procedure. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You'll notice the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. Don't worry once this phase is over your true brow color and pigment absortion will show.

Makeup is one of the few things that will live on forever in your pictures from the most important day of your life, and it is important that a professional apply that makeup.
Do you do hair?
How do i book you?
Do you come to me or do I come to you?
Do you charge a travel fee?
Yes, after a 40 mile round trip, there will be a travel fee added to your balance. The exact fee will be based on your location, and can be discussed at your time of booking.
What kind of makeup do you carry in your kit?
Do you provide airbrush?
I do provide airbrushing. However I perfer to do a manual application. I find that it is easier to manipulate to get the same, if not better, result than airbrush. i will be glad to go over with all my thoughts on airbrush at your consultation, and if you are set on having airbrush, it is an option for a higher fee than traditional makeup.
What are your rates?
Because every service when it comes to makeup application is so unqiue, please contact me with all the details of your event so I can quote you the most accurate fee.
What exactly is waxing?
Waxing is a form of hair removal that removes the entire hair from the hair follicle. Warm wax is applied to the skin and adheres to the hair. When removed, the hair is pulled from the root.
Does waxing hurt?
Everyone’s pain tolerance is different, but you can expect a short, stinging sensation after the strip is pulled. If you are worried about being sensitive, taking an ibuprofen or aspirin about 30 minutes before your appointment should minimize your discomfort (consult with your physician before taking medications). Continuous waxing causes finer and less hair therefore waxing becomes less painful.
Why should I wax vs shaving?
If waxing is done consistently, hair grows back slower, finer, and sparser. Shaving cuts the hair off at the skin and the quantity and thickness of the hair stays the same. Shaving can also increase skin sensitivity and create a higher probability for ingrown hairs.
What kind of wax do you use?
I use 2 different types of wax. For the face and more sensitive areas of the body, I usually use a hard wax that shrink wraps and hardens around the hair and lifts from the skin creating a less painful removal. I usually use a more traditional soft wax for larger body areas such as legs, arms, chest, and back and it is removed by using a cloth strip.
How long should i expect my waxing to last?
If you’ve allowed your hair to grow out to the proper length prior to waxing, you can expect to be hair-free for a minimum of 1-2 weeks following your appointment.
Can I be waxed if I'm taking Retin A, Renova, or Accutane?
These medications increase the rate at which your skin exfoliates so waxing could potentially remove skin as well as hair. Please let me know immediately if you are on any medications. Also be aware that chemical peels, laser, and micro-dermabrasion can also affect skin integrity. So I personally will not wax you if you are on the following.
How do I know what facial I need?
If you dont know which facial you need to book send me a message and we can figure it out together.
Do you use cruelity free products?
I don't use any products that are tested on animals in the united states.
Are your products organic?
It is very important to me that i provide the best products possible for my clients. Be assured healthy effective products are on the top of my list for selection. Unfornately not all products used can be organic.
Does being Vaccinated for Covid-19 effect any services?
Yes, for permenant makeup services we do ask to be on the safer side that you wait at least 2 weeks post your second vaccine or have/had the service done at least 2 weeks before the vaccine. There have been some reports that the vaccine too close to your service can cause extra extreme swelling that may lead to urgent care to treat.
WHAT IS LIP BLUSHING?
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. Your lips will look darker and more like lipstick on the first day, and soften as they heal to become a subtle, natural looking lip tint. Apply a little gloss or balm and your lips are perfectly kissable!
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 1-3 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 an ice pack 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 50-40% 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.
DOES LIP BLUSHING HURT?
Pain levels vary from person to person. Topical anesthetic cream is used before and during your procedure to keep you as pain free as possible.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE AND WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
The procedure takes about 2.5-3.5 hours. The consultation and prep work take a good portion of that time. Once we are both happy with the pre-draw shape and color choice; I will apply numbing cream for 20-30 mins then we will start the process. During that time the non toxic ink can get in your mouth which doesn't taste the best, but is digestible and non toxic.
WILL I STILL HAVE TO WEAR LIPSTICK? AND CAN OTHER COLORS STILL LOOK THE SAME ON TOP?
This is up to the look each individual is trying to achieve. The colors I tattoo with are natural and intended to look very natural. We can certainly enhance your natural color or add color if your lacking, or add a specific tint that your looking for, but it remains soft and natural. That way when you do decide to change it up and want to wear lipstick it will still look great over top, and can cover you tattoo with whatever color we decide to use.
CAN LIP BLUSHING BE DONE ON ANYONE/ EVERYONE?
lip blushing is not for everyone. please read the contraindications carefully. if any of the following apply to you, this procedure is not recommended

** Please note.... even if none of the above apply, lip blushing cannot be guaranteed. This is a cosmetic tattooing procedure, the skin can be unpredictable, it is up to your skin to retain the pigment. Generally, results are successful, however, due to skin type, healing or bleeding during procedure, some results can differ**
if you show up to your scheduled session and decide not to proceed because one or more of the above is present, your booking fee is still non-refundable and you will be charged a late cancel fee.
WILL I GET A COLD SORE BREAKOUT AFTER?
If you are prone to cold sores, lip tattooing CAN cause outbreaks, which can result in loss of pigment. We ask that our clients take their prescribed anti-viral medication starting 3-5 days prior to their appointment and after the procedure to prevent outbreak. You can still have lip blushing done!!! We just want to ensure you get the best results possible. Consult with your doctor for any additional questions. If you have an outbreak, or any other type of scratch/acne we ask that you reschedule your appointment as soon as possible. If you show up with any type of outbreak your appointment is considered cancel and you forfeit your deposit.

Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oils, vitamin E, niacin, or drink excessive alcohol at least 48 hours prior to and after your procedure.
Do not take any prescription blood thinners at least 48 hours prior to and after your procedure.
Discontinue any vitamin A skin care products (Retin-A, retinols) close to the enhancement area at least two weeks prior to your procedure. **I recommend NOT using these products over or around the tattooed area after you receive your cosmetic tattoo. It could cause fading and distortion of color.**
Discontinue use of AHA (chemical exfoliation) skin care products close to the area to be tattooed at least one week prior to your procedure.
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.
Plan trips or events a minimum of 14 days after the procedure. Due to unwanted elements Limit the amount of caffeine you consume the morning of your appointment.
Do not have any chemical peels, dermabrasions, mesotherapy, or any other intense treatments which will cause faster skin cell rejuvenating and cause skin irritation 3-4 weeks before procedure.
If you have been on prescription Accutane in the past, you MUST wait at least one year before considering this procedure.
It is highly recommended that you avoid SUN and TANNING BED exposure for 30 days BEFORE and AFTER your procedure. If you show up for your appointment with a new tan or a sunburn, you will need to reschedule and will forfeit your booking fee. As your skin exfoliates from a sunburn, it will take the pigment with it.
Bring in your favorite lip color if you have a specific color your wanting to achieve

Lash Lift & Brow Lamination
Do I need long lashes or full brow hair?
You do not however i do highly recommand brow rehab and lash rehab to thicken brows or grow your lashes longer before so you can fully benefit from the service. Less brow hair or shorter lashes do not end up with the best end result.
What is brow/lash rehab?
i put you on a growth serum for 4 weeks and help guide you through the process to promote longer lashes or thicker brow hairs.
Do I have to add tinting to my service?
No, you do not. However the results of a lash lift or brow lamination are better when tinting is included.
