Welcome to Lasting Color Permanent Make up and Correction
Let me be the first to welcome you! I know you have other options, so thank you for doing business with me...
Be your own kind of Beautiful!
I believe every woman has innate beauty that it is as unique as she is. I believe that make-up is one of the most alluring ways you can express yourself. Everyone's idea of beauty is individual and should never be dictated by current fads. Your face is the first thing others see when connecting with you. Whether you desire all-natural beauty, or full-on glamour, your style is your signature beauty.
Lasting Color Permanent Make-Up is for women who want to liberate themselves from time-consuming and tedious daily make-up application but still want to feel as beautiful on the outside as they do on the inside. You may desire permanent eyebrow color or fresh new shape, or to have thicker and darker lashes year-round, free from mascara or eyelash extensions. You may need correction of previous micro-bladed brows or permanent eyebrow color to unveil a fresh canvas on which a more desirable shape and color can be applied later.
As founder and owner, rest assured that with every application or correction procedure you trust me with, you receive the highest quality products and individualized attention. My commitment to your safety, health, comfort and happiness is how I've built a reputation for one of the most desired sources of permanent make-up and color removal.
Over the past 15 years, my commitment to the best, the least invasive and non-toxic services and products, has led me to using the hypoallergenic Softap® hand method and pigments for their solid reputation for quality. Highly controlled, non-invasive and 100% disposable, it is the gentlest, most comfortable method of permanent make-up and soft-etch brows. Allergy testing and 24hr patch test services are provided if allergies or sensitivities are a concern.
When a woman steps into my beauty boutique, she's treated as a dear friend because my focus is on developing long-term relationships with my clients. Every application and treatment I do with you is specifically tailored to your personality, self-image, skin type and style. You receive my honest and informed opinion to guide you throughout the procedures, to the outcome you most desire.
A happy client values and appreciates the highest quality, training and experience I bring. She knows what she wants for herself and is able to communicate that to me. She has realistic expectations and understands that every service is more than one appointment to get the final, stunning result.

Permanent Make-Up - Microdermal Pigmentation
Microdermal pigmentation is not only not only an art but a science. Karen blends the art with the science to produce fabulous long lasting and natural looking results. You have a hand and say in the color, design and method to ensure you get the results you desire.
Is Permanent Make-Up Safe?
Very few people have ever had any allergic reactions to pure softap micro pigments that are made in the USA. If you wear conventional cosmetics, you will have nothing to worry about. If you have problems with make-up, we can do a patch test for allergies prior to scheduling a procedure. All supplies are single use only and disposable. I do not use any pigments produced outside of the USA or Europe to ensure quality and safety. I refuse to take short cuts.
Is the Permanent Make-Up Procedure Comfortable?
A very effective topical anesthetic is applied to the area of the skin being pigmented before and during your procedure. Your complete comfort is foremost and always ensured.
Is Permanent Make-Up Really Permanent?
Technically, permanent cosmetic procedures are considered permanent because the color is implanted into the dermal layer. However, natural fading can occur and require touch ups in 2 to 5 years. The sun is the greatest villain to colors fading so always use an SPF sun block of at least 20 or wear sunglasses. Tip: For eyebrows, you can simply use an SPF sunblock tube for lips and just wipe over brows before sun exposure - quick and easy to ensure lasting results!
What is Healing Like After the Permanent Make-Up Procedure is Completed?
There will be mild swelling on the area you have pigmented for 24 to 36 hours. The color will be much darker and thicker for 4-5 days. You will see a light flaking of color revealing the permanent color which is a softer tone of the initially applied color. Once the skin cells grow over top and diffuse the color you will have a very soft and natural color
