FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Taking proper care of yourself BEFORE AND AFTER your procedure is important to ensure your beautiful outcome! Please read through all of our FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS, and procedures BEFORE booking an appointment. If you have additional questions, please contact us. 

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 freshy 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 do I know what brow service to pick?


Microblading-Dry to combination skin. Individual hairstrokes for a natural brow. Best for clients that have an even amount of natural brow hair and healthy skin that is not too thin. Last 10 months-2+years. Total Investment with touchup: $525

Microshading- All skin types. Microblading hairstrokes + machine shading. Great for adding density where hair is sparse or nonexistent. Will cover previous permanent makeup. End result is a natural powdery brow with hairstrokes. Last 2-5+ years. Total Investment with touchup: $625

Ombre powder Brows- All skin types. Oily skin will get the best retention with this procedure. Full powder brow with soft lighter fronts. Will cover previous permanent makeup. End result is a soft powdery makeup look. I can make it as bold or soft as you would like! Last 2-5+ years. Total Investment with touchup: $625




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. 5 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 you accept tips?


Tips are greatly appreciated, but not expected. 10-20% is customary for the service industry. Google reviews and referrals are greatly appreciated as well!





WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Your Lip Blush tattoo will last anywhere from 1-3+ years. Your tattoo will be much lighter and not as defined once healed. The true color will blossom around 4-6 weeks.

A touchup is recommended 6-8 weeks after initial procedure to make any additions or changes.

This treatment can trigger cold sores. If you have a history of cold sores, it is suggested to get prescribed an antiviral medication from your doctor 5 days before and take again 5 days after. Please note, if you do not do this and get a cold sore it will affect the healed results.

Must wait 4 weeks before and after to get lip injections.

Dark Lip Neutralization (cool tone lips) is a multiple step process. The first treatment pigment must be orange. Once that heals, 6 weeks after  you will have a more even nude pink result. May take 2-3 sessions to get desired results. If you would like to know if you are a candidate for this procedure, please email a picture of your lips in natural light.

 Discontinue the use of lash growth serums 2-4 weeks before your appointment. It will cause sensitivity to your lash line. 

Must remove lash extensions before appointment. You can reapply them 2-3 weeks after your touchup.

If you wear contacts do not wear them the day of your appointment.

Come to your appointment with no eye makeup on.

Touchup will be completed 6 weeks after initial procedure.

Shape and color will be agreed upon before starting the procedure.
