Microblading and Ombre Shading Consultation
During our microblading or ombre shading consultation, we explain how microblading or ombre shading is done, what is involved, and prepare each client for what to expect during and after the procedure. We offer our clients a virtual eye brow design on their face during the consultation. This will allow the client to actually see what each brow shape will look like before the procedure is performed. We kindly ask that you come in for your consultation with no makeup so that we can evaluate your true skin undertone, which has a lot to do with how your eye brow color will behave and appear on the skin once healed. The consultation lasts for 30 minutes.
*The consultation fee will be applied towards a microblading session, should you choose Microblading or Ombre Shading.
Microblading is designed for individuals who want to enhance the shape and look of their eyebrows and to achiever fuller eyebrows created with natural hair-like strokes. These natural hair-like strokes are drawn on by a very fine, sterile, and 100% disposable hand held tool that deposits pigment into the epidermis. Brow color may become significantly darker and sharper within the first few days of the procedure, but it will fade (approx. 30-50%) over the healing process. Since microblading is a multi-step process, it is recommended to return for an enhancement to perfect the color, shape, and density of the brows, for the very best results. After the initial session and the follow-up session, it is recommended that you receive annual touch-ups to retain your ideal brow shape and pigmentation.
Ombre Shading (Eyebrows)
Ombre Shading is a semi-permanent treatment which gives the brows a soft, shaded, misty-like powder look. We insert color pigmentation into the upper layers of the skin to create the tails of the brow darker and fade into a lighter pigmentation as we get closer to the start of the brow, for the perfect ombre effect on your eyebrows. Once pigmentation fades, it will return back to your natural brows and skin. This method is waterproof and smudge-proof, and usually lasts longer than microblading (from 1 to 3 years; around 2 years on average) depending on skin type and lifestyle factors. Once healed, it is more natural looking than solid color. It gives great definition and depth to the brows.
Microblading and Ombre Shading Combination
A combination of Microblading and Ombre Shading combines the art of both of these semi-permanent makeup techniques together to achieve the most natural looking result. While Microblading resembles the brow hair, shading serves as a powdery background if certain hair does not take by the skin. Ombre shading has more of an effect with the tail to mid eyebrows being darker and slowly transition to lighter as it moves towards the front, creating a super natural look of filled-in brows without making them look tattooed.
Microblading or Ombre Shading Touch-ups
Since microblading is a multi-step process, it is recommended to return for a touch-up enhancement to perfect the color, shape, and density of the brows, for the very best results. In addition to your initial session is recommended that you receive annual touch-ups to retain your ideal brow shape and pigmentation.

Permanent eyeliner is achieved by inserting pigment into the skin of your eyelids along the upper and lower lash line, thus "permanently" drawing your eyeliner in the exact shape you want. This technique does not cut into the skin or cause scabbing - it is completely non-invasive. Numbing cream is used fora comfortable experience. The shape and thickness of the lines are discussed and decided on within your consultation.
Lash Enhancement (Lash Liner)
Lash enhancement includes implanting permanent microdots in between each layer of your eyelashes to create a natural yet luxuriously full lash base. This enhancement can be applied to either or both your upper and lower lash line, creating a subtle, natural, yet beautiful look, stimulating the appearance of your actual eyelashes.
Full Lip Color & Liner
Permanent lip liner and full lip color permanently transform your lips by adding definition, volume, and the color you desire to have, while contouring your natural lip line. This treatment will shape and balance lips that are thin or asymmetric. Your lips will have an elegant, finished look all day long, every day. It doesn't have to look like lipstick, you can choose a natural everyday wear color that is subtle and sophisticated, and then add your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color to pump it up on a Friday night out. When gradually transitioned, permanent lip liner color doesn't appear as a line, but as a natural definition around the mouth. You can also choose a deeper color as the lip liner, and then blend it with a lighter color for the trim of the entire lip area. Because the lips heal differently than eyebrows and eyeliner, more than one touchup may be required to complete the process. Up to 50% or more of the color can be lost between touch-ups. It is very important to follow the aftercare instructions.
Lip Liner Only
A natural appearing permanent cosmetic lip liner can be applied to give more definition and correct uneven lips, which will result in a fuller appearance. The procedure also helps prevent lipstick from bleeding and can minimize the appearance of wrinkles. Permanent lip liner helps lips look fuller, more symmetrical, better defined, and slightly more pigmented. You can expect it to last for about three years with gradual fading over the course of that time. If you are considering liner only, consider this: with permanent full lip color & liner, you apply it and then add gloss, which blends the liner into the lip and softens it. In contrast, when you have permanent lip liner only, it will not blend into the lip with gloss and soften, but instead, could possibly look harsh. For these reasons, we recommend getting your lips filled with color at the same time as you have permanent lip liner.
