How To Wake Up With A Full Face of Makeup

Imagine waking up with a full face of natural, beautiful makeup, without having to put makeup on! Not only will you save $$$ on makeup, but you'll save time, energy and feel beautiful 24/7! So how can you achieve this permanent natural makeup look? Let's see!  

Step 1: Permanent Lipstick

Aka Lip shading!
Lip shading has become one of the most popular forms of permanent makeup and we know why! Results with an experienced permanent makeup artist can be beautiful and leave people feeling more confident and in love with their lips. The process takes a couple of hours, but results can last 5 years or more!  

Step 2: Semi- Permanent Foundation

Also known as BBGlow.
BB glow involves a microneedling treatment that uses the pigment, to give it a semi-permanent lasting effect. Since this procedure is done with microneedling, patients also receive the added benefits microneedling has itself. Results of a BB glow treatment can be expected to last anywhere from 2-4 weeks for your first treatment. We recommend coming back for a series of 3-4 sessions in total to allow your results to last for even longer. After your 3rd or 4th treatment, you can expect results to last at least 4 months!  

Step 3: Permanent Eyebrows

Aka microblading or ombre powder brows.
This permanent makeup procedure is a tattoo technique to give you perfect brows! A small handheld device is used to create tiny, hair-like, strokes in your brows, to shape and fill them in!    

Step 4: Lashes

Lash Lift & Tint!
Lash lift and tint is basically semi permanent mascara and curled lashes! This treatment does not involve fake lashes, is all your own natural lash. Instead of adding artificial length to your lashes, the process curls and darkens your existing set, acting as a perm for your eyes.     If you're trying to wake up with makeup, be sure to contact us to see how we can make this come true for you!
