For certified permanent-makeup artist Linda Merrell, beautifying faces is merely part of the day-to-day routine. Linda practices her craft at Elegant Skin Care, where she first consults with her clients before adding fine lines and delicate shades to their eyebrows, eyelids, lips, beauty marks, and areolae for women who have had mastectomies. She customizes her pigments to complement individual skin tones—an important step that her clients are grateful for, considering that each permanent-makeup application lasts up to five years. Linda’s services aren’t limited to the realm of cosmetics. Her licensed aestheticians also improve skin tone with microdermabrasion treatments, combat signs of aging with nonsurgical facelifts, and massage therapists relax muscles Japanese restoration therapy.
