What is Microblading?
Microblading is a form of permanent makeup, also known also as feathering, 3D brows or waterproof brows. It involves a microblade (a sharp specially designed handtool) and cosmetic tattoo pigments. Custom shaping also known as mapping and a color match is always included. Brows are extremely bold at application, however, heal into a soft hair like effect. This service is ideal for the client who has no brow hair, sparse brow hair or is looking for an improvement in their brow shape. A second application is necessary at 6-8 weeks. Future applications are additional costs. Microblading can last up to 2 years if well cared for. You will always have some remnants of microblading despite faded pigments.
What is brow shading aka powder brows?
Unlike microblading, shading does not use a manual hand tool. Rather cosmetic tattoo pigments are gently applied with a quiet tattoo pen. Immediately after application, your brows will be bold, however, pigments heal into a soft powdery makeup fill. This "fill" effect mimics the look of an eyebrow powder. Also known as ombre brows or powder brows. Your one year complimentary touchup may not even be needed! Shaded brows can last up to 5 years. Shading options include adding onto a microblading brow reshape or as a stand alone service.
What service is best for my brows?
Good question! Yet another great reason to meet with Annie for your complimentary 15 minute consultation! She is happy to make recommendations and customize your brow experience. A quick rule of thumb: microblading is best for clients with no brow hair or minimal brow hair, it is great for shaping & redesigning brows or lack there of! Shading is the ideal compliment to microblading. A combo brow (aka microblading & shading together), is generally what a client imagines (think Pinterest brow images) when trying to explain their ideal brow. A combo brow can redefine, reshape & fill! A one two punch to perfect brows! However, if you've been blessed with pretty good brows and are just tired of filling them in with makeup everyday...a natural powder brow (shaded brow) is all you will need to achieve a wake up - makeup look!
Is this a cosmetic tattoo?
All of my services are considered to be a permanent cosmetic tattoo, thus all PMU (permanent makeup) artists are required to attain the appropriate state licensing & blood born pathogen training. Certification and training, however, is not mandated in Washington state. I truly believe that this oversight by the state is dangerous & that is exactly why you see & hear horror stories (scars, poor brow patterns, scary results and even infections). I have received local one on one extensive training, long term mentorship & certification with Custom Eyes Beauty, LLC. As well as, training certification by one of the worlds most elite cosmetic tattoo artists Will Anthony. I am also a Registered Harmony Artist through Tina Davies, the leading standard and world dominating microblading guru. Locally, I am well connected with the traditional tattoo industry, which I feel is a valuable to know the different nuances of our businesses (tattoo inks & tools of the trade, etc...). Thank you V and Devon for your Mentorship!

the Semi-perminant myth & benefits?
As with any tattoo, there can be an expectation of fading over time. Cosmetic tattoo pigments are formulated differently than traditional tattoo ink. In the future, you can expect to need additional touchups in order to keep your permanent cosmetics bright and bold. The ink may fade, but will never fully go away. The after-care and future care is a critical aspect to the longevity of your gorgeous results. I firmly believe that fading is desired, as makeup styles change over time and our bodies change over time! Imagine being stuck with a 1970's or 1990's brows forever.... not ok!
do I need a consultation?
Consultations are complimentary and may be needed in order to ensure a clear understanding of the procedure, contraindications and after-care required for a successful brow. Expect consultations to last about 15 minutes. If you decide that this service is for you, a $150 deposit is required in order to book your actual application appointment. I do not tattoo over traditionally tattooed eyebrows, I find that they are generally too scared and the pigment is too dense. I can offer a referral for tattoo removal if necessary. *Touchups over other artists permanent cosmetics (microblading, etc...) requires a consultation.
I'm nervous, Does it hurt?
Permanent cosmetic procedures can be uncomfortable. The majority of clients are taken aback by the odd sensation that their body is not used too. A 5% topical lidocaine is applied before and during your procedures - this helps alleviate any harsh sensations. Many factors can attribute to your lidocaine experience - including hydration, your cycle and how your body reacts to lidocaine (think about the dentist). But no two clients are the same, some doze off during their appointments and some still feel uncomfortable. I promise to talk you through your entire process, keep you calm, relaxed and comfortable. Reasonable expectations help set the stage & alleviate your hesitations, a complimentary consultation is highly recommended. Following appointment preparation guidelines also play a large part in your permanent cosmetic experience. Book online today!
How long does it take?
Procedure time varies: as a general rule I set aside 2 hours, however, some appointments take far less time.
Is permanent cosmetic ink different than tattoo ink?
Yes! Permanent cosmetic ink is formulated differently than traditional tattoo ink. We use LI Global Permanent cosmetic pigments, a world renowned company - that is designed to heal into a soft subtle natural color from brows to lips and even areola/scar coverage (a service we do not provide). While your pigment may look bright and bold straight out of the bottle, it will soften with healing - providing a perfectly natural appearance! No one will ever have to know you have permanent cosmetics!
I am interested in permanent eyeliner!
I believe that permanent cosmetics should enhance your natural beauty! Therefore, my repertoire includes very specific beauty services. I'd rather people wonder if you've had "work" done rather than the work be glaringly obvious (much like the subtly of botox...refreshed & youthful...not plastic & bizarre). Therefore, I only offer a natural lash enhancement eyeliner. I do not offer winged eyeliner or extended eyeliner...a natural lash enhancement allows you to utilize makeup to create a cat eye when you want too or simply wakeup daily with a soft gorgeous eyeliner. *Touchups over other artists work require a consultation.
Give me gorgeous lips!
Cosmetic lip tint is not lip filler! However, if you are interested in reshaping or enlarging your lips cosmetically, I know a very talented local doctor I will gladly refer you to (and I'm also her client)! What permanent lip tint (or lip blush) provides is... redefinition of lip borders & uniformed lip pigment. As we age our lip borders and natural lip color can become softer, blotchy and less defined. Please note: I do not color outside the lines, it's not the 90's. Lip blush will initially be very bold (like a lipstick), but quickly heals (less than 7 days) into a soft shade that is easy to gloss or lipstick over. For example, red lip blush will look like the perfect red lipstick upon application, but heals into a cherry popsicle kiss. Easy to gloss & go OR apply lipstick over your newly defined lips! *Please read contraindications closely, especially if you are prone to cold sores. *Lip Blush fades within 2 years - this is ideal! Our skin changes through the years, as well as, trends. This allows for a modern touchup as needed! *Please note: remnants of lip blush may always be present.
Everyone's healing is different. There are no written guarantees. Additional costs may apply for applications over other artists permanent cosmetics. *Touch-ups over previous artists work require a consultation before scheduling. I do not touch-up over "traditional" eyebrow tattoos. Please see stated contraindications, prep & aftercare details below. Consultations are highly recommended, especially if you feel that your may not be an ideal candidate for the procedure.

BEAUTIFUL PERMANENT COSMETIC RESULTS START AT HOME! We highly recommend that you shower the night before or morning of your appointment, as you will be instructed to avoid H2O after application. Your skin and your body must be healthy, non-sensitive, non-irritated and strong for proper healing. The risk of ink bleeding or rejection is possible - be aware that your before & after care are critical to achieving the ideal results.

In order to PREPARE your skin for application day please adhere to the following: Do not drink alcohol 24-48 hours before your tattoo Do not consume coffee/caffeine the morning before your procedure. Do not take an aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief (this thins the blood). Ask your doctor if Tylenol is ok to take.
The day of the treatment: ABSORB *Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 5 minutes for the full day until oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph (which looks like premature scabs or crust - not conducive to healthy healing).
Days 1-7: WASH *Gently wash daily with a mild cleanser to remove bacteria and dead skin. (Don't worry if you see some color come off. (THIS IS ONLY EXCESS PIGMENT ON THE SURFACE OF YOUR SKIN). With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.
Day 1-3 Treat - Use a rice size amount of provided aftercare ointment 1-3 times a day. DO NOT over moisturize!
Important Reminders: Use a fresh pillowcase Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring or loss of color No facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors. Avoid heavy sweating and long hot showers for the first 10 days. Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days Avoid swimming, lakes, hot tubs for the first 10 days Avoid topical makeup including sunscreen on the area DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area as this will cause scarring. Even "gentle" exfoliation is a NO - NO!!
Remember, with proper preparation and aftercare you will have much better results with your permanent cosmetic procedure. Important note about showering: Limit your showers to 5 minutes so you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet at the very last end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area. *This information was taken from Tina Davie's website. She's one of the best in the industry!
