Permanent Makeup

How would you like to never have to use makeup again? With permanent cosmetics, you can wake up and walk out the door feeling ready to face the world without ever having to worry about people seeing you looking “unmade.” Permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing that uses safe, FDA-approved inks to enhance the face, eyes, lips and brows.

Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo that involves drawing in little hairline strokes that mimic the look of real hairs. It can be used to fill in brows or even restore brow hairs that we lose due to age, overplucking, chemotherapy, alopecia, etc.

Permanent Eyeliner

Permanent eyeliner enhances the eyes with a soft and natural or bold and dramatic look. It also fills in the eyelashes, giving them a fuller look.

Permanent Lip Liner and Color

Permanent lip color adds sheer color tint or a full, opaque color to enhance your lips, and this application can also change the size and shape of your lips. It also helps you avoid the problem of having lipstick bleed into the fine lines around the mouth.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for my brows and for making me feel pretty. I love them lots!! Not only are you talented, you seemed like one of the sweetest, most genuine people I have met. The way you spoke as you taught and did your job was so professional and reassuring it would make anyone feel at ease. Thank you for a wonderful experience and having me!! I can’t wait for my six-week touch up.

Love my permanent eyeliner! Tara is extremely talented and professional. I felt so comfortable, and she made me aware of everything she was doing before she did it. I love the final results! I wish I had done this years ago.

Tara’s numbing cream is amazing! I had my brows microbladed last year by someone else — major pain! Tara has now done my upper and lower eyeliner as well as my brows — no pain!! Tara is a professional, and her work is perfection!

I scheduled my very first microblading session with Tara about six weeks ago, and I am beyond happy with my results! She is very friendly, knowledgeable and super thorough. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself, and I’m so glad I chose Tara to do it. She’s great at what she does!

Tara was awesome, and I couldn’t be happier with my eyeliner tattoos! Professional, friendly, and was very communicative about appointments and aftercare. I recommend her for anyone interested in cosmetic tattoos.
