Finding an artist whose work you love is a great first step towards your permanent makeup journey but there are many other factors to consider before taking the plunge. A consultation appointment is a great opportunity to address all of your questions, concerns and meet your artist to discuss your specific treatment plan before taking the plunge.
I know I want permanent makeup? Do I need a separate consultation?
For some, permanent makeup has been something you have been considering for ages. You have done your homework and you are ready to dive in! Great! At each procedure appointment, we begin by first have a mini-consultation before beginning the procedure. The key issues to be discussed will be goals, color, shape, the best options for your skin type and a basic overview of of the Permanent Makeup (PMU) process and then we will get started. For those that still have a lot of questions, concerns , medical concerns or just not sure that permanent makeup is the right choice, I would recommend booking a stand-alone, complimentary consultation appointment.
PLEASE NOTE: Lip procedures sometimes require prescription medication prior to the procedure. If you have a history of cold sores, either a virtual of personal consultation is required prior to your procedure appointment.

During your consultation, I will give you a detailed explanation of the permanent procedure, benefits and risks, as well as the healing process. We will also discuss different technique options that are best suited for your skin, and achieving your goals.

Must be completed for every procedure visit
Your skin is my canvas. Having a more mature, rough, textured or unhealthy canvas will definitely impact the final outcome of the result. Not all techniques are suitable for all skin types. It is important to have realistic expectations when embarking on this journey. For example, very loose, crepey or vascular eyelids are very challenging for an eyeliner procedure. Not to say it can't be done, but it is important for the client to recognize that your skin is a MAJOR FACTOR, and even the most perfect work may not yield the desired result if the skin is not cooperating. Together, we will devise a plan that is the best options to achieve your goals.
Please bring with you the makeup color that you use on a daily basis. Together, we will choose a color to best suit the undertones of your skin and fulfill you wishes. Keep in mind that permanent makeup is implanted IN the skin, as opposed to be painted on the surface of the skin. This is an important distinction, as implanted colors will always be a bit muted by the overlaying layers of skin. For some clients wanting to achieve that bold makeup look, permanent makeup alone may not be sufficient. Rather it will serve as a great foundation, upon which you can enhance with cosmetics as you desire.
My goal is to give you an outcome that vibes with your personal style. Whether you are into bold looks, or barely there, there are great options for you. Click the links below to see style options and considerations for each cosmetic procedure:
As with all procedures in which a foreign substance is implanted into the skin, there is a risk of allergic reaction. A patch test is advisable to help rule out the possibility of an allergic reaction to pigments, anesthetics and other substances used in association with permanent makeup procedures.
