Tomboy turned beauty expert; a career path I chose in the seventh grade has led to fifteen years of passion for my trade. Skincare is my first love, but education is what fuels me. I am fascinated by the evolution of my industry and I believe in exploring new trends and techniques. It has been so exciting to witness the growth of lash extensions since I began with them ten years ago. My interest in micro blading stemmed from years of shaping brows and applying makeup to enhance them. Making people feel beautiful could not be more rewarding and my clients are genuinely happy to see me every time. I love my career to my core. I believe in high maintenance beauty for a low maintenance lifestyle.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Skin type and lifestyle play a role in how long it lasts. Most people need a touch-up every 1-2 years to revive hair strokes and refresh color.
IS IT PAINFUL?
Everybody tolerates pain differently, but 2 topical anesthetics are used during your session to keep your pain to a minimum.
Most people are pleasantly surprised about how relaxed they are able to become.
I HAVE PREVIOUS PERMANENT MAKE-UP, CAN I GET MICROBLADED?
This is determined on case by case scenarios. Consultations are required.
HOW DO I PREP FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
Make sure to not have chemical peels within 30 days of your appointment. Also, Botox should be done at least 2 weeks prior. Stay off Retinol the week prior. Also, avoid anything the week prior that thins your blood (i.e. blood thinners, aspirin, fish oil supplements, vitamin e supplements).
No alcohol the night before your procedure.
SHOULD I GET MY BROWS WAXED/THREADED BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT?
That's up to you, however I do like to see what your natural growth pattern is.
If you decide to, make sure it is done one week before your appointment.
WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER?
Following the procedure, the pigment will begin to oxidize and will appear bolder and darker. In the 2nd phase of the healing process, you may experience your skin begin to flake and peel. In the 2nd-3rd week you can expect a muted look where it almost seems as if they disappear.
After that finishes, they magically reappear to be the soft, natural brows you signed up for.
CAN I GET MICROBLADED IF I'M PREGNANT OR NURSING?
Unfortunately, the answer is no.
WHY SHOULD I GET THEM?
Because everybody's prettier with lash extensions giving you 70% more volume and thickness.
WHAT ARE THEY MADE OF?
They're made of synthetic polyester. Synthetic lashes respond better to wear & tear than other materials.
Plus, synthetics have the least possible chance of allergic reactions to human skin, unlike mink.
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
The look can be maintained indefinitely with refills. Touch ups are needed every 2-4 weeks.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE APPLICATION PROCESS?
You're comfortably reclined with your eyes closed while the lashes are applied one at a time. Most people take a little nap.
I HAVE NO LASHES. CAN I GET EXTENSIONS?
Unfortunately, since the lashes are applied to existing natural lashes, you have to have some to receive the procedure.
Lash extensions shouldn't be applied to clients that have a Alopecia, are undergoing chemotherapy or those who suffer from Trichotillomania.
HOW DO I NEED TO PREP FOR TREATMENT?
Arrive to your appointment with completely free of eye make-up.
Also, you must stop the use of water-proof mascara at least 2 days prior to your lift.
If you wear contacts, they must be removed
IS THIS LIKE LASH EXTENSIONS WHERE THEY WILL LOOK DRAMATICALLY THICKER?
Lash extensions and lash lifts are two totally different animals. I will not be adding any additional lashes to you.
I will simply curl your natural lashes. That being said, they can appear much fuller because they are so uplifted.
CAN I STILL WEAR MASCARA?
Absolutely! You will achieve a more dramatic look if you do so.
