If Ramona Lisa Abner ever goes to the Louvre, she'll probably get arrested for filling in the Mona Lisa's sparse brows. That's because Ramona?also known as Mona Lisa?embellishes facial features with permanent-makeup services. During each one-hour session, Mona imbues lips, lids, and brows with subtle shades that don't smudge after long days or encounters with moisture. She can also adorn cheeks with blush, camouflage irregular pigments, hide scars, and create Marilyn Monroe?style beauty marks. When she isn't sprucing up her clients, she hosts a five-day training course, an apprenticeship program, and a continuing-education class to help both new and experienced artists hone their permanent-makeup skills.
