Permanent Makeup by Candice

1. How did you get started in this business?

I started off as a freelance makeup artist in 2007, then received my esthetician license shortly after. From there I began my career in skin care as lead esthetician at Brazilian Waxing Boutique. In 2013, I decided to further my career and branch out into permanent makeup.

2. Why did you choose this business?

I've always had a passion for makeup, skin care, beauty,and glam. So, I decided to make a career out of it! Helping other women look and feel their best is very rewarding.

3. Do you have a hero or mentor-business or otherwise?

I've always admired my mother and father's work ethic. They have always worked exceptionally hard and have inspired me to do the same. I've also learned a lot from Jennifer Chavez (owner of Brazilian Waxing Boutique). She is an excellent businesswoman and leader. She has definitely helped me in pursuing my goals in the beauty field.

4. What is permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup, or micropigmentation, is a cosmetic tattoo. Pigment is placed into the dermal layer of the skin with a tattoo machine or manual hand tool to enhance facial features such as eyebrows, eyes and lips.

5. Who can benefit from permanent makeup?

Really, anyone! Especially if you have a busy lifestyle and do not have the time or patience to apply makeup every single day.

6. What do people ask for the most?

Definitely eyebrows! Brows tend to thin over time with age or over tweezing, causing many women to fill them in every day. Brows frame the face so they are an important feature for a lot of people. I can help to enhance the brow shape with a solid tattoo fill-in or with the microblading method.

7. What is microblading?

Microblading is another form of permanent makeup, using a tiny blade and semi-permanent pigment to implant hair-like strokes into the skin. The microblading method creates a very natural looking brow. It's really popular right now!

8. What other services do you offer?

Aside from permanent makeup I also offer eyelash extensions, dermaplaning, Kelly Baker Brow makeovers and full-body waxing at the boutique.
