WILL I REALLY LOOK LIKE MYSELF ONLY BETTER?

Imagine having your makeup done by a professional makeup artist. Now imagine waking up with it. With each client, Tina strives to design the most flattering makeup suited to their personal style and face shape. A 22-year old girl is going to have a different makeup style than a 45 year-old woman or a 60-year old grandmother. These are important factors that are taken into consideration.

HOW IS IT DONE?

First, Tina will carefully analyze your features and pinpoint the weaknesses in how you are doing your makeup. Maybe your eyebrows are too low causing your eyes to look droopy. Maybe you're not applying you eyeliner properly. Regardless of your situation, she will show you how to achieve a "fresher, modern look".

As a professionally trained colour analyst, Tina will advise you on the most appropriate colours to compliment your skin and hair tone. Then, using cosmetic pencils, she will create a variety of designs to allow you to visualize the end results. Once you are happy with the proposed design, Tina will apply the permanent makeup. Each procedure takes 1-2 hours.

DOES IT HURT?

New topical anesthetics have been developed especially for permanent makeup. The anesthetic is applied to the area before and during the procedure to assure you of the most comfortable experience possible. Some people describe the sensation as a "scratching" feeling. It is common to hear that there was not as much pain as was expected.


HOW WILL I LOOK IMMEDIATELY AFTER?


The color will look darker and more defined for the first week. After one week, the intensity will soften about 40% Detailed aftercare instructions are provided and reviewed before and after each procedure.

IS IT SAFE?

Yes. The strictest sanitation and safety standards are followed by using only single-use needles and parts. Also, hypo-allergenic pigments containing no fragrances, emollients or other irritants are used during the procedure.

HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?

Permanent makeup is long-lasting and will slowly fade over time. As you become accustomed to your makeup it's not uncommon to want more. To keep your makeup looking it's best, you should refresh it every couple of years. The darker the color, such as black, the longer it will last. Natural, delicate colors are more vulnerable to the effects of sun, swimming and breakdown by the body.

CAN I GET MY PERMANENT MAKEUP CHEAPER?

It saves you money and embarrassment to do right the first time. This is not a time to shop for the lowest price, especially for something that is going to be permanent on your face. The cost will directly reflect the experience and skill of the artist, so choose carefully. Like most services, you get what you pay for.


HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT ARTIST?

Ask the right questions! The most important factors will be experience and artistic ability. When measuring experience it is not only important how long a she/he has been in practice, but how many procedures have been performed. As a minimum, do NOT recommend going to an artist that has performed less than 1,000 procedures. Tina Davies has personally performed over 10,000 procedures.

Did you know that the training course to become a permanent makeup artist is just one week? There are many new graduates practicing on guinea pigs out there.



Artistic skill will vary greatly. The best way to assess this skill is to have a face-to-face consultation with the artist. He/she should be able to analyze your makeup needs and recommend designs using their advanced makeup training. Never allow any permanent makeup to be placed on your face without a preliminary makeup demonstration. Do not assume a pretty website or business card equals skill or experience!

Another tip: look around their office. Premier and successful artist invest in their business. They use the latest and best equipment to deliver the best results and it shows in their surroundings.
