I have been using either pencils or the Anastasia Brow Kit for years now and it never looks the same. I'm fair skinned with natural ash blonde hair so I look very washed out without makeup on. When I found out about the 'micro pigmentation secret', I began researching permanent makeup places here on Long Island and that's when I discovered Emilia Berry, a permanent makeup artist from Germany.
Yesterday was the big day. I was nervous about having my whole face done but left the office yesterday with a huge smile. I can tell already that the results will be absolutely beautiful. Emilia is one of a kind. She's genuinely pleasant, professional, and talented at her craft.
I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have their permanent makeup done. The process isn't easy.. it is basically tattooing on your face whether you want to admit it or not. But, Emilia used a topical anesthetic which greatly helped and the pain wasn't bad at all. When I left, my lips were swollen because they are already slightly big to begin with. I looked like Angelina Jolie... (Well.. I wish lol).
The results look harsh for the first day or so. Just dark.. but it's incredible how much it lightens up and it is revealed how she matched your natural colors to perfection!
She even slightly extended my lip line out a bit so my lips look more full as well as corrected my off-set eyebrows. My husband already complimented me.. and it's not even the final result yet.
I highly suggest Permaline Cosmetics to anyone! After all of my research I've done online for permanent makeup artists I only found one artist in London and Emilia who's work is this stellar. Absolutely worth it.
I'll update with after photos soon.
One week later. WOW. INCREDIBLE. Okay, so at...

Okay, so at first I have to admit, I was a little scared. The lip line was a little dark and scabby and I had no idea how it would look. I didn't want a 'lip liner' look at all and asked Emilia if she had done a lip liner because it looked darker.
By day 4/5 the dark color flaked off and now, 8 days later my results are so natural. I am totally convinced most celebrity have this permanent makeup done. It looks so beautiful and I am so happy. The lip color is my EXACT natural color and it looks so pretty. With lip gloss on it looks like full natural lips with a little shine... and my eyeliner is so subtle but perfect.. all I need is mascara and foundation and I'm totally ready... and I'm extremely fair so this is a big hooray!
Hands down, Emilia is a gem. My eyebrows are perfect too! My 'makeup' looks better than I was doing it on my own. My eyebrows have symmetry and look fuller, matching my color completely and looking soft and ash like my natural brow!
Oh, and my touch up is on Monday. I don't even feel like I need a touch up but she's a perfectionist I suppose.
She also does micro pigmentation for stretch marks and scars. I just had a baby so my stretch marks are red but when they turn white I will have her fix me! I also have implants and scars around my areola. I plan on having a 'mommy makeover' when I lose these 60 lbs from pregnancy and when I get 'the girls' fixed, I know where to go when I need my scars camouflaged!
When I tell my friends I had it done, they think I'm crazy but when they see it they say, wow what's her number lol. Honestly, it really didn't hurt and I looked a little circus-like for the first few hours after having it done (because of the abrasion on my lips making it swell like I had bad injections), but by that first evening I could tell how talented she is as an artist and professional.
I'll post 'after photos' soon.
