Wake Up with Make Up

I’ve been obsessed with makeup for as long as I can remember. When I was 2-years old, my sister gave me my first tube of lip gloss and from then on, I was hooked. Over the years, my collection evolved from those teeny tiny eyeshadow palettes made for children to an over-stocked bathroom resembling nothing short of a cosmetics counter. The obsession continues.

My only hang-up with cosmetics is the effort behind it. I am the type who takes well over an hour to get ready when I need to get all “glammed up.” Some days I don’t have over an hour and other days I’m just down-right not feeling it. Needless to say, I can quickly transform from looking glamorous to looking homeless.

Am I doomed to live such an all-or-nothing lifestyle? Not at all. When I came to CFR, I was quickly introduced to the idea of permanent makeup. It’s not something I had seriously considered until then, because like most people, the word “permanent” creates some anxiety. I am also not a huge fan of needles. My nerves were put at ease, however, as I watched the transformations of client after client from the time they came through our doors to the time that they left. There are many times when a client has come in with an air of insecurity and left with a huge smile on her face. I wanted to take part in that!

I was able to consult with our very own Melody Richt, a licensed and board certified micropigmentation artist with a background in portrait artistry. She allowed me to express my concerns and ask as many questions as I liked. I viewed “before and afters” of several of her clients and was amazed at what a difference permanent makeup makes. I realized that it would make my life easier and allow me to confidently face the world even on days when I didn’t feel like putting on my own makeup.

The procedure was very simple. I had decided to do eyebrows and eyeliner, which took about 2 hours each. Melody made sure I was comfortable and relaxed before she began my treatment. She repeatedly applied numbing cream to my targeted areas as she worked so that I wouldn’t feel the needles. For the most part, the treatment was extremely tolerable with little to no discomfort. As an added bonus, Melody made sure I was equipped with everything I needed to take care of my skin for the next week!

Would I do it all over again? Yes! Would I recommend it to the next person? Double yes! Every woman wishes she could wake-up looking beautiful and with the help from permanent makeup it’s possible!
