First Flyer 2002


I’m very excited that you are taking the time to find out more about the world of permanent makeup and all the amazing results that it offers. First and foremost, WOW, what a great feeling to have perfect makeup everyday that looks completely natural. My love of permanent makeup began at a very young age when my mother and father came home from a trip to California. My mother asked my brothers and I if we noticed anything different on her and of course, we couldn’t guess. Permanent eyeliner!!! I was shocked and amazed all at the same time! My mother is a very pretty woman naturally, however, the eyeliner was done beautifully and enhanced her appearance so much. What really stunned me at the time was knowing she was going to have her permanent makeup on everyday. Nearly 20 years later her look remains gorgeous! As I grew up I looked forward to the day when I could have my own makeup applied permanently. The moment I became of age, that’s exactly what my mother and I did. We sought out a technician and I had the procedure done. I absolutely loved it and from there my journey began. I attended college to receive my bachelors degree in business, however, I longed for something more exciting. The opportunity presented itself when my friend told me about a local women who offered training in permanent makeup. I immediately said YES and knew this was the beginning of an exciting and wonderful adventure. I feel blessed with my professional talents and I want to share them with others. I have the ability to make a difference by providing positive changes to many lives!!
