  • Anything to avoid before?
    24 hours prior avoid Caffeine and Alcohol. 48-72 hours before refrain from Advil, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Aleve, vitamin E, and fish oil to avoid thinning of the blood. You make take Tylenol if needed, this will not thin your blood. 4 weeks before the scheduled service avoid Botox, fillers, laser treatments, chemical peels, retinol, and exposure to strong sunlight.
  • How should I come in the day of my appointment?
    It is best to come in with freshly washed hair and your makeup as you would normally wear it. If you normally do not fill in your brows, no worries I map them out regardless. For eyeliner and lash enhancement, please come with no eye makeup or contacts.
  • How long does it last?
    Your permanent makeup will last from 10 months to 5+ years. It depends on your lifestyle and skin type. Sun exposure, exfoliants, retinol, exposure to salt water, and oily skin will make your permanent makeup fade faster. Always wear sunscreen over your permanent makeup!
  • Does it hurt?
    Everyone’s pain tolerance is different. For lips and eyeliner, I use a topical numbing before and during the procedure, so the pain very minimal to none. For brows, after the first pass when the topical numbing is applied, most will feel nothing. Nap time!
  • Do I have to get a touchup?
    Yes, it is a two step process. 6 to 8 weeks after in the perfecting appointment, I will touchup any area that didn’t retain pigment and make any necessary changes.
  • Do I get to pick the color?
    I match the pigment to your eyebrow hair. This way it blends and looks natural. For lips, bring your favorite lip stick color and I can match it! In the consultation we will discuss any challenges or special request you have.
  • Will you remove my brow hair?
    No, I keep all the hair that falls inside of the shape that I map out. My goal is to keep them as natural as possible.
  • Can I get my brows wet while they are healing?
    For 7 days after, you will not get your brows wet. (besides the first night washing them to remove any lymph) Avoid long hot showers and sweating during the first week, because this can push the pigment out of your skin. Keep showers under 5 minutes and avoid putting your face directly into water. No swimming, hot tubs, saunas, or tanning. Please review full aftercare in aftercare tab.
  • Do I need to book a consultation prior to booking my appointment online?
    No, you do not need to book a consultation prior to booking online. Each appointment includes an in depth consultation to go over the process from start to finish. I make sure you feel completely confident and comfortable before we begin. Shape and pigment matching is customized to each client. If you have any questions before booking, please send an email through the contact page.
  • I have previous permanent makeup; can you cover it?
    Yes, I offer correction work. Please send a picture of the area you would like covered to Briaragonokc@gmail.com If your previous tattoo is too dark or thick, I may recommend removal prior to booking an appointment.
