The initial appointment takes about 2 hours. You will fill out medical forms and consents, take a “before” picture and then we will draw on the brows or liner or lips that you like. For brows, especially, we take our time to draw them in the shape you like and use different tools to make sure that they are even. When we are sure of the shape, I will apply the numbing gel and you will relax and get numb in about 20 minutes. During that time we will pick out a few colors that you like and I’ll apply a little drop right on your skin to see what your chemistry does with them. And then we pick the best one.
After numbing is complete, I’ll wipe off the gel and begin the application of color. I usually go across each brow or eyeliner with the pigment three times, reapplying numbing gel as needed. You will have a look at what I”m doing as we go along. After we are all done, and you approve of your makeup, I will take your “after” photo and then apply a numbing ointment to send you off to the rest of your day.
