I am incredibly excited to announce a new line of permanent makeup services called Enhancements, designed for clients whose features do not need shaping, correction, or rejuvenation. We’re talking about gentle enhancements to the eyes, lips and brows, for a natural, no-makeup look.
Brow Enhancement – $450
This treatment provides background shading for your natural eyebrows. Think of it as a “watercolor wash” behind your existing brows, using custom-blended shades matching the color you were born with: soft blondes, browns, shadowy brunette or auburn.
Lash Lines Enhancement – $500 (upper and lower)
This is for women who want to enhance their eyes without the look of permanent eyeliner. Using tones from your natural palette, I place softly defined color in between your individual eyelashes, both upper and lower. This makes the eyes more noticeable in a subtle way.
Lip Enhancement – $850
This treatment softly defines your lips with gently blended, translucent color that matches your natural lip color. The look can go from slightly blushed lips to pouty lips, depending on how we blend the color. After enhancement, just gloss and go!
Enhancements are perfect for summertime: you can be your active self, secure in the knowledge that your enhanced look won’t wash away in the pool or melt in the heat!
Who knows? You may find that a few Enhancements are all you need to age gracefully and feel your best. Call me to schedule a free consultation. I’d be happy to answer any questions.
The Mission: To look your best 24/7 – The Solution: Permanent Eyebrows
Jamie Lee Curtis once said, “After her soul, the first thing that I check out in a woman are her eyebrows.” Eyebrows are one of the greatest assets a woman holds – they are an important player in face-to-face communication and they have the ability to help show off a wide range of emotions and facial expressions. An example of infamous eyebrows? Audrey Hepburn. Known for her classic beauty, many people remember one distinct feature about Hepburn’s face – her thick, strong eyebrows.
Why are eyebrows so important & what can permanent eyebrows do for you? Eyebrows frame the face and having the proper eyebrow shape can enhance the shape of the eyes, while also taking years off of your appearance. Choosing permanent makeup for your eyebrows allows you to fill-in sparse eyebrows, reshape any poorly arched or uneven brows and is also a way to add new eyebrows for clients that have undergone hair loss – either through Alopecia, Chemotherapy, burns or injury. A permanent eyebrow procedure will drastically rejuvenate your appearance by creating a “non-surgical brow-lift”. Think about it – you have the ability to get rid of that sad, angry or tired look…without surgery! Permanent eyebrows are also known as the perfect finishing touch for clients who have had BOTOX.
Different Strokes for Different Folks
During a woman’s daily makeup routine, eyebrow application usually takes the most time, is difficult to do and can create a challenge when you are trying to recreate the same look every day. Permanent eyebrows are an investment – one with great benefits. You will enjoy hassle-free eyebrows that are both moisture and smear proof and you will look your best all of the time. With all of these benefits and more, it is easy to understand why permanent eyebrows have become one of the most highly sought after procedure.
So, what are some different types of permanent brows? A variety of looks can be created with permanent eyebrows – each one unique and in accordance with the distinct personality of the client. Clients can choose from soft and powdery strokes and classic hair strokes over a powdery base to sophisticated, multi-colored hair strokes and sexy, bold glamour strokes. For women that have little to no brow hair, permanent eyebrows will be designed specifically for you using custom blended colors that render a “hair-like” appearance. Are you a fair-skinned blonde? You need not worry about ending up with a harsh or artificial look; be confident in knowing that a soft, feathery brow that exudes a
natural, timeless beauty awaits you.
Schedule Your Complimentary Eyebrow Consultation
During your eyebrow consultation with Sarah Oliver, often referred to as the “permanent eyebrow expert” by area physicians and beauty professionals, you will learn about the different procedures and also be asked to fill out a questionnaire. The eyebrow consultation also includes tinting, shaping, application and a lesson. Sarah is a big believer in preserving eyebrows, so she begins with tinting the brows, no matter how few. The tint will bring out the soft, vellous light hairs that are often not seen. Tint colors range from Auburn, Medium-Brown and Dark-Brown to Black-Brown and Black. Brows are then designed and reshaped. Once the desired brow has been achieved, Sarah will suggest techniques and colors in addition to showing a series of “before” and “after” photos of her work.
Important Tips When Considering Permanent Eyebrows
Clients that choose to have the permanent eyebrow procedure done should be aware of factors that can contribute to color changes. Here are some to keep in mind: Improper Consultation and/or Pre/Post Care Instructions; using aspirin based product and/or blood thinners 1 week prior to the procedure(s); sun exposure (including tanning booths); salt, from either the environment or foods; acids from foods or topical
products; professional hair color applied to tint light or gray eyebrows; whitening toothpastes and teeth whitening services and chemical facial treatments.
Another important thing to remember is that eyebrows are often refreshed every 1 – 3 years, as the colors used in the procedure are generally softer than colors used in eyeliner or lip colors.
“The joyful spirit always carries its eyebrows high” – Pierre de Ronsard
Remember, classic, permanent makeup requires an experienced artist who embodies a refined sense of color and style with the unique ability to custom blend colors for varying complexions, personalities and lifestyles. Countless women can tell you from personal experience that having a permanent makeup procedure performed has given them enormous freedom and the ability to “wake up and go” – getting their morning routine started quickly, without the hassle of a long-winded daily makeup ritual.
In addition to being an expert in her field, Sarah Oliver also offers her clients a wide range of products that work in perfect harmony with permanent makeup procedures. The AMPLIF-eye product line, which features products such as the Lash and Brow Fortifier, is compatible with permanent eyebrows. This highly concentrated formula is full of fortifying peptides and botanical extracts that nourish, all combined in a delivery system that gets directly to the root of short, thinning, gray and sparse lashes and brows.
