Additional requirements for eyelash enhancement/shaded eyeliner procedures:
- NO eyelash extensions (must be taken off by your lash tech few days prior the procedure)

- NO problems when someone is touching your eye area
If you currently use any eyelash growth serum or did in the past 6 months you MUST inform me about it PRIOR to booking an appointment to receive more information (waiting period required).
Additional requirements for lip blush procedure:
- NO severely chapped lips
- NO cold sores or any irritations on and near the area
Lips with natural dark pigmentation considered a correction and require a different method. Multiple sessions priced accordingly might be necessary to achieve desired results. Dark lips are taken for procedure on case by case basis. Contact me for more information.
If you ever had a cold sore (fever blister) on your lips the lip blush procedure can trigger an outbreak, therefore it is highly recommended to obtain prescription medication from your doctor and start taking it on the day of procedure and few days after procedure (following the doctor`s prescription).
It is recommended even if you`ve never experienced cold sores before as the virus could be present in your body in the dormant state, which may result in outbreak after the procedure.
