Certified permanent-makeup specialist and licensed aesthetician Holly Mercuri helms Natural Beauty Permanent Make-up & Esthetics, where she uses the tattoo-inspired procedure to trace facial features with eyeliner, eyebrow tints, and lip liner that last for years. Her hypoallergenic pigments are custom blended for each client to create a look that is natural and won’t smudge or rub off like regular makeup or mascara made from grape jam. Perfect for busy professionals with full mornings, Mercuri’s services are also ideal for those with poor vision or shaky hands, and her expertise has even been requested by doctors and plastic surgeons, where it is put to use in treatments such as breast repigmentation, scar camouflaging, and other corrective procedures.
Though Mercuri’s studio specializes in permanent makeup, her beautifying touch also extends to facials and waxing services, and onsite massage therapist Jayne Nelson can knead away stress with reflexology or Swedish massage.
