Q: Do you do recommend doing trials for weddings?

A: Absolutely! Trials are a preview of what you will look like on your wedding day. Often, clients will have an idea of the makeup look they want and during the trial, we make sure you get exactly what you want. It's also important to wear the makeup throughout the day and see how it lasts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Q: What is the difference between MICROBLADING and MICROSHADING?

 

A: With microblading, I use a small, handheld blade dipped in pigment to etch hair strokes onto the skin. I follow your natural hair strokes, filling in the brow to create the illusion of fullness. With microshading, I use a handheld machine and a needle, similar to what tattoo artists use. I dip the machine in pigment and slowly fill in your brows, creating a beautiful, smooth finish.

Q:Does the procedure hurt?

A: Everyone has a different tolerance to pain but for the most part, it is mostly painless. I use a topical anesthetic which will numb the area I'm working on. During the procedure, if you're feeling discomfort, I will use a numbing gel which will also help with any swelling. 

Q: Are these procedures really permanent?

A: These pigments are extremely long-lasting and most people will have some color on their skin even after five to ten years. However, it does fade over time and brows do need to be touched up every 1-2 years, after the initial touch-up.

 

Q: How long does it take?

A: When you come in, we will do a consultation to determine what style and color will best suit your face. I will apply the numbing cream, which takes about 25 minutes to take effect. Then, I will map out your brows, or outline your eyes or lips, depending on which procedure(s) we are doing. Expect to spend about 2-3 hours.
