Dark Lip Correction SpecialistWorld renowned PMU Master Trainer @tesstattoo
My interest in makeup began at a very young age. Every day I would practice new styles and techniques and loved discovering all the different ways I could change looks just by adding shadows and lines. As part of my studies, I took multiple drafting courses, which is where I developed a love for understanding shapes and symmetry.
I decided to combine my two passions and start a career in cosmetic tattooing. As a permanent makeup artist, my greatest passion is to help women boost their confidence and self-esteem. I am a perfectionist and enjoy working patiently and meticulously to produce unbeatable, natural-looking permanent makeup. I’m proud of the international training I have received, I have learned the most innovative techniques to enhance your natural beauty.
I look forward to meeting and speaking with all of you at the Vegas PMU Conference.

One of the newest treatments in the pmu world is freckle tattooing. This is a procedure in which pigment is applied to your client’s upper cheeks and nose to give them a youthful, freckled look. The number and location of these cute brown spots on your client’s face is important to achieve a natural look. This same technique can be used to enhance, or create, beauty marks.
Freckle application is a desired pmu service as clients don’t need to wait for summer and expose themselves to hours and hours of harming sunlight in order to have those freckles, and the best thing is – they can have freckles all year-round.
