Beauty Services Makeup FAQ's
I use a quality topical numbing gel throughout the entire service to keep you nice and comfortable. Most of my clients say the pain level is 2-3 on a pain scale of 1-10 and describe the process as less painful than a mild sunburn.
Two hours on average. If you choose to do the Ombre Powder or Signature Brow the session can last up to three hours. During your appointment we will consult with you the entire time ensuring we are on the same page. Much of the time is spent measuring and drawing on a symmetrical set of brows and agreeing on your perfect shape and color. The actual procedure itself takes about 30 minutes to an hour. The touch-up appointment will take about an hour.
For most clients, permanent makeup will need maintenance every 1 - 3 years. Clients with oily skin or frequent sun exposure will need refreshing more often. In order to keep your results looking fresh, a yearly touch-up is highly recommended.
The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear dark for the next 24-48 hours. This is normal for the procedure and part of the healing process. The color will fade by up to 30% as it heals. In the following days, the eyebrows will continue to be dark and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area. The eyebrows will lighten up in color as it heals. No down time is required after microblading procedure. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 6 weeks for the color to fully set in. True color will reveal itself once healed at the 6 week mark.
Microblading is a semi-permanent brow tattoo performed with a small handheld tool, using a feather stroke technique to produce the appearance of fuller eyebrows or to enhance the natural brow shape. Microblading is a softer/more subtle cosmetic tattoo compared to older brow tattoo methods. Body tattoos use ink while cosmetic tattoo procedures involve pigments that are implanted between the epidermis and dermis. These pigments are designed to gently fade over time. Fading is desired as it allows the artist to make changes to color and shape over the years as client’s natural coloration and facial changes occur.
What Are Ombré Powder Brows?
Ombré Powder brows use only machine shading to create a powdered effect. This technique is great for clients who want a well-defined brow shape and like a more filled in brow look. It is good for all skin types, especially oily skin with large pores.
This is our combination brow technique which uses two permanent makeup techniques: microblading and machine shading to create a more defined eyebrow. This is good for clients who prefer a natural wispy look at the front of the brows and a well-defined arch and outer tail.
The treatment is considered semi-permanent and will fade over time. Touch-ups are recommended once a year to maintain shape, color, and detail. How often depends on a number of factors including:
Skin type (oily skin fade faster)
Pigment color used (lighter colors fade faster)
Sun exposure (over time can cause fading and discoloration of the pigment)
Metabolism (clients with a faster metabolism will fade quicker)
Use of daily anti-aging products e.g. (Tretinoin (Retin-A) & Alpha Hydroxy). These products increase your cell turnover rate and will shorten the life of your cosmetic tattoo
Anyone under 18 years of age
Pregnant or nursing (we recommend waiting two months after nursing due to hormonal changes for optimal healed results)
History of keloids or hypertrophic scarring
History of Epilepsy, MRSA, or lupus
Chemotherapy (at least a year out and requires doctor's clearance)
Diabetic (requires doctor's clearance)
Viral infections or diseases
Pacemaker or major heart problems
Using Accutane (must be off for one year)
Uncontrolled high blood pressure
Allergy to epinephrine, dermacaine, benzyl alcohol, lidocaine, or tetracaine
Currently taking antibiotics (must be off for at least 30 days prior to appointment)
In order to ensure that the brows heal perfectly a minimum of two treatments are usually needed 6-8 weeks apart on average. This first 6 week touch-up is included as it gives us the ability to correct any areas that possibly faded or allows the client to make suggestions if they want adjustments with the shape or color. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color for the whole year! (This is not included in Model Pricing)
In order to achieve the best results, it is best to follow the pre and post care instructions.
Prior to your procedure, clients are advised of the following
Avoid alcohol, aspirin/ibuprofen, caffeine, and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours.
Avoid tanning so we can assess your natural skin tone.No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior.
Feel free to come in with your brow makeup on so our technician can see the every day look you prefer. Reference pictures of shapes and colors of brows are always welcomed. We will then work together to create the perfect brows!
After your procedure, clients MUST follow these instructions:
Wipe brows brows off for the first 5 hours, once every hour using a cotton round that lightly moisten with distilled or cooled downed water that has been boiled water to remove impurities.
Apply after care morning and night for the first 7-10 days. Gently wipe away the old healing balm and any lymphatic liquid (clear yellowish liquid) that may have built up prior to the new application. Lightly pat dry with tissue and using a new q-tip, re-apply healing balm to the brows.
Do not over apply healing balm.
Do not immerse brow area in water for 7 days. When showering, make sure to avoid eyebrow area. When cleaning or washing face, make sure to avoid brows and clean around it.
You must avoid working out for 7 days following your Microblading procedure. Light exercising is allowed (minimal sweating), but you must clean the tattooed area with lukewarm water as soon as you are done exercising. The salt in sweat will fade the pigment very quickly and give poor results.
Do not put makeup on the brow area for a minimum of 10 days. Microbladed area is an open wound, using makeup may cause infections.
Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 24 hours.
Brow area will feel slightly itchy as it heals and will start to lightly scab over. Do not peel or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation.
Do not go swimming, tanning or into saunas for at least 14 days.
No face scrubs or chemical peels at least 2 weeks after.
Yes-however this is NOT considered a touch-up session. If your brows were tattooed (including microblading, soft-tap, powder brow) elsewhere, this is considered a corrective session and you will be required to book as such.
Microblading creates the illusion of fuller, thicker eyebrows for an everyday realistic look, however, brow powder may still be needed to achieve a full makeup look. Please keep in mind that it is not a solid-filled tattoo, but rather tiny hair strokes that make up the shape of your desired brow.

We do not recommend wearing mascara over your extensions. It can weaken the bond and cause premature loss of the extensions. However, you may wear a water-based, non-waterproof mascara on the lower lashes, being careful when applying and removing. Waterproof mascara is NEVER recommended!
The more meticulous you are about caring for your extensions, the longer they will last.
Do not get them wet for the first 24 hours
Use ONLY water based and OIL-FREE products around your eye area.
Wash your eyes daily with an extensions-safe cleanser to keep your lash line clean.
Dry thoroughly with a blow dryer on a cool setting, then spin through with a clean mascara wand.
Oil breaks down the adhesive bond. Creams and serums should be applied sparingly, and no closer than the orbital bone.
Anything that is heavy (i.e. night cream) should be applied approx. an hour before laying your head on a pillow. The lashes will touch any creams when you close your eye so be mindful of this and dap away any excess product from your eye before sleep.
Avoid using cotton swabs or pads that will leave lint and catch on your extensions.
Do not use mascara or an eyelash curler.
Do not rub eyes or pick/pull at your extensions.
Sleeping on your back is the best position. Avoid sleeping on your face.
