The object of her work is to deliver long-lasting beauty, so it's fitting that the technique that inspires permanent-makeup artist Cresent Gibbons—ancient Japanese tattooing—is itself so enduring. Cresent practices her advanced version of this timeless art during permanent eyeliner, lipstick, and eyebrow sessions. She can even add artificial beauty marks in order to suggest old-school glamour or make one pet turtle distinguishable from another. Cresent also applies 3D lash extensions, individually bonding flexible fringe to eyelashes so that clients can enjoy luscious lids without mascara.
