Permanent makeup artist Tahara Asad doesn’t want her clients to be nervous. She realizes the enduring nature of the service can make people apprehensive, so she always performs first-time applications conservatively to ensure that the initial results aren’t too drastic. Her soft, custom-blended colors complement lips, brows, and eyelines naturally, but if clients decide they want more saturation they have a 90-day window to have their makeup darkened at minimal cost.
Tahara, who is also a licensed aesthetician with more than 20 years of experience, takes equal care in administering her skincare treatments, which range from basic European facials to advanced glycolic peels. She urges all brides to schedule the galvanic facial the day before their wedding, as its amino acids, minerals, and mask imbue skin with a mesmerizing glow that causes caterers to forget to ask for money.
