The staff at Pigmenta Permanent Cosmetics believes that beauty should be effortless, which is why they've curated a selection of services designed to minimize time in front of the makeup mirror. Permanent makeup artist Julia enhances eyes and lips with hypoallergenic ion-oxide pigments custom-matched to the client’s skin-tone and cosmetic preference. Instead of relying on a machine or stencils, Julia performs the tattoo-like procedure by hand, allowing her to impart a soft, natural look and even mimic the look of individual eyebrow hairs. Meanwhile, lash specialists enhance flutterers with everything from semi-permanent extensions to lash dipping—a process that allows clients to ditch their mascara for up to six weeks. Pigmenta’s staff also invites customers to stop in for quick threading sessions, where sturdy lengths of thread allow aestheticians to swiftly remove excess hair from the face and brows or quickly sew it back on if the client changes their mind.
