Dear Connie,

Let me start off by saying that my experience with you was nothing short of life changing.  
Anyone who has had to draw her eyebrows on knows what a nuisance it can be ALL the time.   
Since I was a teen Ihave wanted to get permanent make-up, but was seriously skeptical about
getting them done.  My nail technician had her eyebrows tattooed and she would tell me that it
didn’t hurt and it only cost $100.  That sort of put me off, “It only cost $100? ”  That explained
why her eyebrows looked like little arches on her forehead, and that was exactly what I didn’t
want.  Also there are plenty of horror stories about permanent make-up gone wrong, and this is
something that is going to be permanently on my face, kind of scary when you think about it.

When I began researching about 6 months ago, you were the first artist I found, and  I was
most impressed with your work after looking at other’s web sites.  I will admit that your prices
were high, but I know, being an artist in my own field, that you get what you pay for.  I could get
$100 eyebrows...  or I could have an artist look at my facial structure and shape, and create
eyebrows that are right for my face.

I really appreciated that you scheduled time during my appointment that was for “getting to
know me” and during that time is when I truly saw the artist in you.  You watched the way I
moved my face when I talked and that I move my eyebrows a lot!  So instead of trying to find a
stencil that might fit in my face,you created exactly what my eyebrows would look like if they
actually grew! And just like I told you, I went back to my last yearbook picture where I had my
natural brows, and they look exactly the same.  

The work you did was worth a whole lot more than what I paid you.  You are a true artist with a
gift, and like I said, my experience with you was nothing short of life changing.  I fully intend on
coming back to you in the future for my touch-ups and want to express my utmost respect for
your artistry in your work.  

Thank you,
Sarah B. Foster
Over the years, a little of my natural lip color has faded to pale. But my color
has now been restored.  I have my baby pink lips back again, and there is
always a base to work with, AND FALL BACK ON!  I'm very happy with my

I originally had my eyebrows done by someone else and it was horrible. The
shape was all wrong and the color was too dark. It took several sessions
but Connie fixed me up, I just wished I had found her first. Connie is an
artist in her own right.

Lov u Connie!

Thanks again.

Hi Connie,

My transformation is like watching a caterpillar turn into a butterfly.

I must sound like a broken record because I keep telling everyone how happy I am, but it's so true.  I'm
happy with the results...I'm happy with the colors you used and most importantly I'm happy that it was you
who did my procedures.  I would highly recommend you to anyone who was considering on having some
permanent make up done.  You have a true talent for what you do.    

After reading all of this, I hope you know that you have one very satisfied customer on your hands.  

Thank you for everything and I will be seeing you again.  :)

Hey Connie!

Thank you for your meticulous service. As soon as I walked in to your studio, I had an instant feeling that I
was in good hands. You were not only professional, but very friendly and informative.

It's now been about 6 months since you did my permanent makeup and I can't tell you how much I love it.
It saves time and I know I must have escaped an embarrassing moment or two but I can't tell you when
that might be, because I never worry about my eyebrows being there anymore!

Thanks you for a job well done.

Saw you were online and it made me want to write you. Even though it's been
like a year since you did my eyebrows, I just want to thank you
again....especially now that I'm pregnant and about to give birth to my second sounds really vain but at least I don't have to worry about the pics in the
hospital with no makeup on, cause at least no matter when I go into labor I'll
have my brows!!!
It has also given me an extra boost since I have been on bedrest for almost 11
weeks now. As you can imagine I haven't worn much makeup as I can't really
venture out at all (more like "house arrest" not bedrest..) but at least, I don't
know, it just makes me feel better, and more put together even though I'm not
wearing much makeup these days.  Anyway! Just wanted to thank you again. I
hope you are doing really well, and your new year has started off wonderfully!!!!
Take care,

This is my second time seeing Connie for my eyebrows. My first time
was over a year ago and she did a great job, that's why I returned to her
today. As a teen I over plucked my eyebrows and made them really thin.
As an adult I wanted thicker fuller more attractive eyebrows but they
didn't grow back! Only a few hairs. So I was left with very noticeable gaps
(bald spots) on the bottom of my eyebrows. Therefore I was stuck filling
in my eyebrows with a pencil every morning so they we're not too thin. I
even tried henna, which looked good but it disappears after 2 weeks.
There is something wrong when you wake up every morning and the
first thought running through your head is "I need to fix my eyebrows!" I
found Connie by an Internet search and her before and after pictures
were amazing. After Connie corrected my eyebrows the first time I felt
pretty waking up, stepping out of the shower, and after swimming
because i didnt have to worry that my eyebrows are uneven or came off.
Being able to wake up and go is such a huge relief for me. Over time
they faded which is normal that's why I returned to her today to correct
them again and I swear I love them even MORE this time. She has truly
outdone herself from last year. When I first arrived I told her the shade I
wanted so she mixed colors for 2 hours to give me the perfect shade i
desired. She never seemed impatient or rushed which made me feel
comfortable to communicate what I wanted and what I didn't want. After
the colors were perfect she numbed me with cream and steralized
everything multiple times. I held my own mirror while she was tattooing
me so I can make sure I like EVERY mark being made.
Along the way she discusses what she is correcting so there is no surprise. Also this gives you a chance to tell her, "well I think I
need a little more here, what do you think?" and she gives her opinion and touches it up and you view it. So you really get the
shape, color, and thickness you DESIRE.  She doesn't just start tattooing and you end up with a surprise on your face. You are
involved in the design. When she first applied a tiny bit of color my eyebrows already started to look amazing to me. After we both
decided we loved them and we were finished she was applying aquaphor ointment on me and said "wait I think we need a little bit
more there" and she let me look and I agreed. She really takes her time, she could have just finished applying my ointment and
sent me on my way but she is really passionate about her work and wants YOU to be happy with yourself and her work. I wouldn't
trust anyone else with my face after receiving such amazing quality work from her twice already. She is truly blessed with a talent.
My eyebrows look natural, more natural than when I color them in with a pencil. She doesn't use harsh lines or make you look like
you used a sharpie. The way she shades and applies hair line strokes is amazing! I am planning to see her again in about 6
months so I can keep this perfect shape we acheived today.

Also look for some "FILTERED REVIEWS".
Every review that I have on-line comes from
got filtered is because those clients had
chose to do one for me. When this happens,
Yelp "filters" the review. This is
designed to kee
 p people from asking
friends and family p people from asking
friends and family to to write "fake" reviews.
I'm sure this is write "fake" reviews. I'm
sure this is advantageous in SOME
situations, but it's not advantageous in SOME
situations, but it's not helping me.  Just know
that these reviews helping me.  Just know

with me and with the ASSURANCE that you don't end up with regrets.

quality work is always more expensive than the alternative. IF YOU ARE PRICE SHOPPING, you already
know, that you can get a better deal somewhere else.  But Mainly due to the extra time and care
involved in creating something special, for YOU.

I have a lot of experience with corrective work as well as advanced cosmetic and paramedical
procedures. I hope to meet YOU soon!
