Stars like Jennifer Aniston have woken us up to the effect your eyebrows can have on your face, your whole look ... even your career! Harmonizing with the color of your own brows, Reese or one of her staff members can extend, augment and improve the appearance of your eyebrows with fine mists of color, or by weaving microscopic simulated hair strokes among your natural ones.

 

If you suffer with thin or missing brows due to excessive plucking or pale hair color, permanent make-up will create a realistic and natural looking brow line, which will last for many years.

 

NEW Ultra Lift Eyebrows – an exciting new treatment that uses ultra precise hair addition to re-balance, shape, lift and harmonize the brow where most eyebrow enhancements add color only, this treatment draws individual hairs into the skin, under magnification.

 

 

Permanent Makeup Eyebrow Treatments are perfect for ladies who want immaculate eyebrows 24-hours a day.
Reese creates flawless eyebrow perfection with her individual three-dimensional hair simulation technique, or striking, symmetrical eyebrows with a swoosh of natural color.

 

 

* We no longer touch-up brows that were not originally done by one our team members.  Original brow must be completely removed.  We do offer brow removal treatments.

 

 

Permanent Eyeliner

Permanent Eyeliner

Emphasize the eyes and you accentuate your beauty and sexual appeal. Semi-permanent eyeliner makeup and eyelash enhancement makes your eyes more open and attractive. This natural look is achieved with soft liner but for ladies who want perfectly made-up eyes from dawn till dusk, a bolder, more definite line is needed. Subtle to bold, two tone to pearl highlighting.

 

Permanent eyeliners can also define the eye giving you the choice of a soft and natural look or a bold and dramatic style using intense black; shades of olive, denim blue, or even ultra violet.

 

Whatever style you choose, we will blend the pigments especially for you so that your natural coloring is enhanced. For a really striking definition, you should consider a pearl highlighter, or a stunning combination of eyelash and liner in two colors’ above the upper lash line.

While these treatments are popular with ladies seeking a permanent cosmetic solution for their makeup, they are also ideal for contact-lens wearers or those with hay fever or other allergies, and are ophthalmologist-recommended for women sensitive to daily wear eye makeup.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Permanent Makeup?


Permanent Makeup is the process which sterile cosmetic pigments are placed under the dermal layer of the skin using single use individual sterile needles. The areas to be treated are numbed using topical anesthetics to make your experience a pleasant one




Why have Permanent Makeup?


Everyone wants to look the best they can, naturally. Think how convenient it would be to enjoy perfectly arched eyebrows, wide-awake, pretty eyes and beautifully contoured lips, without the effort of time-consuming morning and night time makeup rituals. All subtle, soft and perfectly in place with no smudging, no mess, no problem. With permanent makeup you have the confidence of knowing you look the best you can look, right round the clock.




Am I suitable for permanent makeup?


Most people are suitable for some form of permanent makeup. At EyeMakeItHappen Image Concierge, Reese and her staff will explore with you precisely which treatments will suit you best in a one-to-one consultation. This will include an analysis of your natural skin colour and a discussion of your dreams and expectations and any features you wish to correct, mask or balance. This consultation allows the staff to recommend specific treatments they believe will achieve the effect you want and allow you to put your best face forward to the world.




Why should someone have permanent makeup?


Permanent Cosmetics is perfect for the busy person/professional who has little to no time to apply conventional makeup, those who like to wake up with a fresh..natural look, eyebrow symmetry, the athlete who wants to look natural, Alopecia sufferers, those with medical conditions that cause their hands to shake, areola re-pigmentation after breast reconstruction/cancer, vision problems, or those that have allergic reactions to over the counter makeup products..but mostly for convenience!




What is the recovery/healing time?


Healing time varies from person to person. With proper topical anesthetics & numbing, swelling will be very minimal and typically there is no bleeding involved with my procedures. I provide each client with a tube of Aquaphor for the aftercare and written instructions. The treated area will begin to soften/lighten up within 3-10 days...and it is required to have your touch-up appointment within the 8 weeks following your original procedure.




How long will Permanent Makeup last?


Permanent Makeup can last for many years but is dependent on several factors including your skin type, your annual sun exposure and lifestyle. For these reasons, Reese recommends a colour refresher treatment every twelve to eighteen months to maintain perfect results.




Is Permanent Makeup safe?


Absolutely. All the pigments we use are hygienically prepared and packaged and created from natural minerals that are specifically selected for their safe, non-toxic and hypoallergenic properties. Technicians and cosmetic surgeons throughout the world trust them in everyday use; moreover, ophthalmologists actually recommend eye procedures using permanent make-up for women who are sensitive to conventional cosmetics.




Does Permanent Makeup hurt?


The treatment is performed with your comfort in mind and we want you to be relaxed during the procedure. For this reason, an anaesthetic will be applied to the area being worked on prior to treatment to minimise any discomfort.




What if I don’t like the result?


Reese and her staff take great care to discuss treatments they know will enhance your face or body the way you want it to. Because she takes so much trouble with this initial personal consultation, no client has ever been unhappy with the end result. Such care may not be universal in the industry, however, and numerous new clients have come to EyeMakeItHappen to ask them to correct or improve treatments done elsewhere that have not turned out as expected or gone wrong in some way.




Is Permanent Makeup expensive?


Compared with many other cosmetic enhancements, such dermal fillers and Botox® for example, which require frequent and costly maintenance, permanent makeup is a comparatively low cost and sensible alternative. As in much of the cosmetic industry, it is usually the higher end of the market that will deliver the most effective results. For this reason, quality of service, comprehensive consultations and the use of high quality pigments by experienced technicians, should guide your decision rather than price alone.




Health & safety standards?


Rest assured the equipment used is the latest and most technologically advanced. Like medical equipment, permanent cosmetic equipment is safe by design against cross contamination. Fully disposable ‘single use only’ applicator cartridges are used, for your complete safety and peace of mind. All equipment selected and used by EyeMakeItHappen Image Concierge are fully inspected by the Health and Safety executive and complies with all Health and Safety requirements.




What next?


If we have now answered all your questions and you feel reassured about our methods, treatments and expertise, the next step is to arrange your one-to-one consultation with Reese or one of her staff members. Prior to the consultation you will be sent a simple skin patch test, to ensure your suitability for treatment. At the consultation you will receive a personalised colour analysis that will take into account your individual skin undertones, hair and eye colour. This enables us to custom blend the natural pigments that will be used to achieve the look you desire. This is a painstaking process as no two people are the same and the blend must be carefully and uniquely prescribed for each client. As part of your permanent makeup consultation, we will also discuss your desired look and explain how this can be achieved. Treatment sessions can take up to two hours and are generally arranged in two stages, spaced between four to six weeks apart, allowing for a safe, comfortable and gradual process.





 

Pre-Post Care

Pre-Post Care

Some residual swelling is normal for ALL procedures.  Some clients may have no swelling some may have alot...this is individualized.  You can apply ice to the treated area if necessary.  Dry skin, itching and tenderness are common after the procedure. These symptoms will dissipate each day and vary on an individual basis. Color will fade/soften up to 50% or more...the touch up will enhance any area that has faded too much.  It is important to realize that you will need a color boost every 1-3 years to maintain it's fresh natural appearance. If you are out in the sun alot, use anti-aging creams, Retinol products, natural elements, regular chemical peels, or exercise frequently, you will probably need a color boost every 10mos. to 1yr.  The better you take care of the treated area, the longer it will last.

 

​General Rules for ALL Procedures:



-Absolutely No Sun or tanning prior to the procedure or after the procedure for at least 7-10 days.

-Do not work out the day of the procedure as the body heat expands the pores. it is recommended not to sweat (heavily) for the 1st 7-10 days.

-Sweat is salt and can prematurely fade the treated area. Avoid direct shower water on the treated area after the procedure.

-DO NOT take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 48-72 hrs prior to your procedure.  Tylenol is fine.

-You have to be off Accutane for 1 yr. NO Exceptions! Avoid alcohol or caffeine prior to the procedure this will minimize any oozing or swelling after the procedure.

-Getting a procedure while on your menstrual cycle can make you hyper-sensitive at the procedure site.

-Avoid extreme exercise (sweating) the day of the procedure & directly after the procedure, at least 7 days..sweat is salt water and will fade the pigments prematurely....(we use salt in the removal process).

-No swimming until the area is completely healed, salt water/chlorine can cause the pigments to fade or change in color.

-It is recommended to apply the Vaseline to the treated area/s prior to swimming even after healed to prevent the chlorine water/salt water from penetrating the area.

-Alcohol should be minimal prior to your procedure, this causes thinning of the blood. Only touch the treated areas with squeaky clean hands. This is a must..we do not want an infection.

-DO NOT RUB, SCRATCH OR PICK AT THE TREATED AREA, let any scabbing naturally exfoliate off....picking can cause scarring.

-Plan on scheduling your touch-up within the first 6 mos.

 

Eyebrows

Eyebrows

-Come to your appointment with your eyebrows penciled the way you like them if you like & bring your eyebrow pencil with you.

-If you get your eyebrows waxed or tinted, please have this done at least 72 hours prior to your scheduled procedure.

-It is recommended to wait at least a week to have them waxed after the procedure.

-Regular makeup can be worn immediately after your procedure, just not on the treated area until healed. The eyebrows WILL appear bolder immediately after the procedure..this is common in all. Permanent Makeup applications...it will begin to soften up after a few days. 

​​

-Hair strokes appear crisp and bold at first, but will soften up as the tissue heals. It is very common to have areas fade more so than others..this is part of the healing process and will be treated at the recommended 6-8 week touch up appointment.

-Previously done eyebrows may take 1-3 treatments to achieve the desired result.

-Scar tissue in the brow area of eyebrows done multiple times WILL require additional procedures.

-Only use the ointment (Aquaphor)or Vaseline on the treated area for 7-10 days  (thin coat)

-If you have hyper-sensitive eyes, watery eyes, tear duct plugs or severe allergies..this may not be the procedure for you... our eyes produce saline-salt water and this will cause the area treated to fade or not take at all. 

​​

-Do not wear contact lenses to your appointment, bring your glasses. Come with your eyeliner on if you like to show me how you want it otherwise come with no eye makeup on.  

​​

-NO mascara.

-Clean contacts can be worn 24-48 hrs after the procedure No mascara for 72 hrs after the procedure, you can tip the lashes with the mascara, do not take it all the way to the skin until 7-10 days after the procedure.

-It is recommended to buy a new tube of mascara to use after the procedure to reduce the risk of infection.

-DO NOT USE oily makeup remover, baby oil, mineral oil or heavy creams, especially glycolics around the eyes.

-Only use the aftercare ointment (Aquaphor) / Vaseline provided to you after the procedure for 3-7 days, or as needed, you cannot over use them.

-Eyeliner can and will have some residual pigment that may peel or flake off after a couple days (in most cases)..that is ok..eyeliner tends to fade more so than brows due to the moisture in the eye area.

-After the touch up the color stays better and lasts longer....Eyeliner will take 2 procedures!

 

 

-If you are prone to cold sores or have frequent herpes breakouts around the mouth and lip area....it is recommended that you be on an Anti-Viral.. Valtrex or Acyclovir 2 days prior to your lip procedure...and continue until Rx is complete......if you get a break out due to not using the medication, it can spread to the entire treated area....causing alot of discomfort and the pigment will not take....those that have not had a cold sore or breakout, are still recommended to get a Rx to prevent one. ​If you have any active breakouts the procedure will need to be rescheduled.

-Try not to bite into greasy, oily  or acidic foods while you are healing.

-Avoid hot, steamy drinks until healed.

-It is recommended to drink through a straw.

-Lips will look very BOLD and BRIGHT the first few days and WILL begin to fade substanially...and even look blotchy within the first few weeks, the color will begin to fully develop in 3-6 weeks.

-Lips can take up to 3 treatments to get the desired shade.

Remember, no two sides of the face are the same. Perfection is our goal, but note that nothing is PERFECT. We do not use the "P" word when doing Permanent Makeup. Sisters NOT twins, is used universally in this field.
