Eyeliner is a great way to enhance your natural eye shape. I offer top liner, winged liner, pixie liner, and bottom eyeliner. Eyeliner can last for 15+ years before needed it touched up. The pigment will always be in the skin but you may want a color boost down the road as it will fade. A digital tattooing machine along with stretching techniques ensure the best results for this procedure. Topical numbing is optional for those that need that extra comfort.
This technique requires using a digital tattoo machine to "whip shade" the pigment into the skin. The result looks similar to applying powder on your eyebrows or filling them in with a pencil. During this procedure I go over the brow several times to create dimension in the eyebrow to give a natural appearance. This means that the tail of the Eyebrow will appear darker and "fuller" and will transition into a lighter "softer appearance towards the beginning of the eyebrow. Some clients may also choose to combined Microblading and Powdered shading by creating hair-like strokes at the front of the eyebrow and shading the tail/spine of the eyebrow.
LIP BLUSHING AND LIP LINER
Lip blushing is a form of tattooing that enhances and defines the natural shape of the clients lips. Using a brighter lip color gives the lips a more youthful, healthy appearance. This technique can also be used to mask scars and imperfections of the lips. As well as create asymmetry. Results can last 15+ years before needing a color boost. Immediately after procedure lips will look very bold and bright, however, with the area being mucosal color will about 50% and heal to a very natural color.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
The initial procedure will take 2-4 hours. A follow up in 4-6 weeks is always recommended with permanent cosmetics.
WILL IT BE PAINFUL?
Everyone has a different pain tolerance. However, a topical anesthetic will be applied prior to starting the procedure, followed by a liquid anesthetic during the procedure. This is used to take the edge off and provide the most comfort possible for clients.
