Before and After Care Instructions

Know before you go...

  • Wear your makeup to your appointment. This gives Tamra an idea of what you do on a daily basis and helps guide which direction she will go with your permanent makeup. 

  • You will need to be off ANY lash growth products for a minimum of 4 weeks before you scheduled eyeliner appointment. 

  • Lash extensions also need to be removed before any eyeliner appointment. 

  • Remove contacts before procedure. Bring eyeglasses if vision is impaired without contacts, you will not be able to put contacts back in for a minimum of 3 days. 

  • Avoid any medications that can be a blood thinner such as Aspirin, Advil, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Vitamin E or Essential Fatty Acids. If youare on prescribed blood thinners, please let us know. Be advised due to the blood thinners you are more likely to bruise, however we DO NOT suggest topping ANY prescribed medications. 

  • ANTI-VIRAL (ie. Valtrex or Acyclovir) is required for all Lip appointments if you have ever had a cold sore. We suggest a minimum of 1,000mg/day for 7 days. You will take the medication 3 days before, the day of, and 3 days after. It is a prescription medication that you will need to get from your doctor or dentist. 

After Care Instructions...

Brows, Blush, Camouflage and Areolas

  • Clean area with water only if bleeding is present, until it stops.
  • Ointment is soothing and helps with discomfort. If you choose to use, I prefer Aquaphor.
  • Mineral powder may be applied to camouflage darkness during the healing process. After healed, use sunblock daily to protect color, if it's stressing you out.
  • After the 3rd day gentle cream or moisturizers (Cetophil or Lubriderm) may be applied to help with itching and flaking.
  • For a minimum of 3-5 days, avoid water (direct shower, washing area, sweating profusely, etc).
  • For one week: Don’t use cleansers, exfoliates, or scrub area. If a slight crust appears, do not scratch or pick, this will result in loss of pigment. No tanning beds, saunas, steam rooms, long steamy showers, or swimming.
  • Do not expose to dirty or unsanitary conditions.


  • Ice as much as you can the first 24 hours to reduce swelling and bruising.
  • Eye drops may be used if previously prescribed.
  • Remove contacts before procedure and do not wear for a minimum of 3 days.
  • Sleeping elevated helps with swelling, as does an antihistamine.

  • If a slight crust appears, do not itch or pick, this will result in loss of pigment.
  • NO MAKEUP (mascara, eye shadow, or eyeliner) for a minimum of 3 days. New mascara is recommended.
  • No Latisse, eyelash growth products, tinting lashes, or lash extensions for 2 weeks.


  • Ice as much as you can for the first 24 hours after procedure. Move ice in circular direction around lips.
  • Keep your lips moist with ointment at all times for a minimum of one week.
  • Be gentle when washing face unitl fully healed.
  • Continue anti-viral if you are prone to cold sores for a minimum of 3 more days (1,000mg).

  • DO NOT pick or scrub.
  • Do not expose lips to any sun for at least 2 weeks (tanning beds included)
  • DO not expose lips to spicy/acidy foods or hot food and liquids (keep coffee/tea at medium temps).
