PRE + POST CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
You must begin preparing for your treatment 7-10 days before hand. This ensures your blood is the right consistency, your skin is well prepared and you will heal with no problems.
You must avoid:
- All forms of Caffeine (Coke, energy drinks) and alcohol
- Ibuprofen and Aspirin
- Fish/Krill/Evening Primrose oil
- Spices that thin the blood; cinnamon, turmeric etc.
- Avoid sun exposure and tanning products on the tattoo area 30 days before your treatment and for 2 weeks after your appointment. If you are sun burnt on the tattoo area we can not perform the treatment on you
- If you high/low blood pressure or any heart conditions, you must let us know as soon as possible. You will need your doctors permission to carry out the treatment, and if approved, stop taking any blood thinning medication at least 1 week prior to your appointment
- Botox should be carried out at least 2 months before your treatment and no sooner than 3 weeks after your follow up appointment as it can alter the way your cosmetic tattoo sits
- Chemical peels should be carried out at least 60 days before your appointment and no sooner than 60 days after the procedure, always avoid the tattooed area. If you do frequent facial peels, your cosmetic tattoo has a higher chance of fading
-You must apply Emla numbing cream to the area and cover with glad wrap one hour before your appointment. Applying Emla cream before your brow appointment is not optional and you should come in to the salon with your cream and glad wrap on
- During your first appointment, we do a full consultation process as well as starting your brow tattoo
- Please make sure your cell phone is on silent when you are in the treatment room
- Please do not come chewing gum as it does cause your face to move during treatment
- As a health and safety precaution for our insurances, only the client is allowed in the treatment room during the treatment
- During the consultation, feel free to ask all questions and concerns you may have about your cosmetic tattoo. Make sure the tattoo is something you are 100% certain about as this is a permanent/semi-permanent procedure. If you change your mind during the procedure the $100 deposit is non-refundable
Your Brows will be healing for the next 4-6 weeks and you will need to purchase fragrance free baby wipes and Vaseline (NOT Bepanthen or Pawpaw ointment) for your after care. The first 2 weeks are most vital and your brows will go through a bit of a roller-coaster process, Straight after your appointment they will be very dark and bold, feeling like they steal all the attention from your face. As they heal over the next couple days the colour does fade down, and the itchiness and flaking begins. You will notice dead skin, pigment, and occasionally hair coming out of your brows, this is normal and all a part of your body’s natural healing process. After a few days you will notice your brows beginning to form a scab and the colour will look a lot duller. Stop using baby wipes at this stage and do not be concerned if they look a lot lighter. This is due to your skin pushing out all the damaged/dead skin cells and gives a "frosted window" effect to your brows tattoo covering up the pigment. You will notice your brow colour coming back as your skin heals and you get closer to the 2 week mark. In the first two weeks of getting your cosmetic tattoo you must not:
- Carry out any activity that may cause excessive sweating (e.g. gym, cardio, etc.)
- Do not get your brows wet for the first week, and no swimming for 2 weeks. The tattooed area must be kept dry for one week. The only moisture that is needed is Vaseline and wet wipes.
- Do not use any face cleansers, makeup removers, or eyebrow products on the tattooed area during this time
- Do not expose yourself to sun or UV rays on the tattooed area
1. You will need to wipe both brows, both ways every 15 minutes for the first hour. Once the hour is up, you will have wiped them four times and you will need to apply Vaseline. For the rest of the day you will need to wipe and apply Vaseline hourly. We will demonstrate how to apply the right amount and remove the excess from your skin
2. Before you go to bed you will need to place a strip of glad wrap over your brows to hold the Vaseline in place while you sleep for the first night. Applying a thick layer at night will ensure your brows stay moist all night
3. The next day you will need to begin wiping the area with baby wipes and applying Vaseline four times per day for the next two weeks. Makeup can be worn around the area but not on the tattoo. No brow products on the area for 2 weeks
4. After a couple days when you feel that they are getting hard/starting to scab, you need to stop using the wipes as you may pull pigment out of the brows. You only need to apply Vaseline four times per day
5. After the two weeks, you will need to apply Vaseline to the tattooed area every morning for the remaining four weeks of the healing process. It takes a full six weeks to heal, so even though it may feel like your cosmetic tattoo is healed DO NOT stop the after care
As yearly maintenance for your skin to heal, we advise clients to purchase Bio Oil from the supermarket. This can be used one night per week on your brows for the year until you come back for your colour boost. It will renew your skin cells to prevent any scar tissue and you can start this one month after your perfecting visit. If you have any issues or questions regarding your cosmetic tattoo do not hesitate to give us a call/text on 027 3120637 or email email@example.com
PRE + POST CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
- A freshly cleansed face is ideal (makeup-less, no heavy moisturisers, eye creams, or products containing SPF)
- Prior to your appointment you may like to collect some photos of makeup you like, Instagram + Pinterest are great places to look for makeup inspiration if you're feeling lost. I love it when you share other little details that help me to learn more about you and your style, so I can transfer that into your look.
- If there is any part of your makeup that you're unhappy or uncomfortable with, I want you to feel confident letting me know! You wont hurt my feelings + I wont be offended at all - I'd hate for you to leave unhappy & not have the chance to fix it. I'll give you a hand held mirror to watch through, and I'll make sure you leave feeling happy + confident with your look!
- It's wise to plan a few moments later in the day to add a little powder to your look, blot any oil, and touch up your lipstick. Your look will last, since the benefit of working with a MUA is that they are trained to create looks built for longevity. But a little maintenance will keep you fresh that much longer if you wish and I provide a take home touch up kit for those emergencies!
- While makeup artists are incredibly talented, having a great base will make your face look even more flawless. It pays to pay close attention to your skin care regime leading up to your appointment - make note to keep your skin hydrated + lips exfoliated.
- It's best to wear a button up top and plain white, if it's for a makeup trial.
Here are some AFTERCARE tips to help you get the most out of your makeup:
- Avoid heavy sweating and touching your face as this transfers oils onto the skin, which can upset the makeup
- Be gentle if removing tight clothing over the head, especially if wearing false lashes
- You will receive a lip touch up kit should you need to touch up your lips throughout your event
- If you are prone to oiliness or just want peace of mind throughout your event, blotting powder and a beauty blender are great to keep on hand for any touch ups to the face

PRE + POST CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
Here's what you need to do BEFORE your appointment:
- Exfoliate your face and body the days before your spray tan appointment. I make sure I regularly exfoliate and moisturise my body throughout the week before my tan. Exfoliation and moisturising creates a fresh, even layer of skin cells for the tan to develop. Starting with this perfectly polished base is a must for streak-free coverage, no tan grab and long-lasting colour.
- Do NOT exfoliate, use tan remover, apply moisturiser, perfume, deodorant or make-up THE DAY OF your spray tan appointment, come with fresh, clean skin! It's best to avoid oil based products too, before and after, as these can also affect the life of your tan.
- I recommend to wax or shave at least a few days prior to allow the pores to close. If you need to shave after your tan I recommend using a sharp razor.
- I provide a disposable hair net & g-string. You are more than welcome to wear whatever makes you the most comfortable, if you would like to wear a bra I recommend an old strapless one you don't mind dirtying (this is a must for breastfeeding Mum's). You should remove all jewellery ready for your spray!
Here are some AFTERCARE tips for you, to help you get the most out of your glow...
- Wear loose, dark clothing to ensure the tan can develop freely and not be rubbed off by tight bra straps or underwear. My go to after tanning is my trackpants, a long sleeve jumper and my big, fluffy dressing gown over top! It's best to wear pants if you have leather seats in your car to avoid the tan sticking to the seat.
- Avoid touching the skin! You will transfer the bronzer to your palms and end up with orange hands.
- Avoid water and keep the skin dry! This includes not undertaking any activities that will cause sweating.
- Do not use any products over the tan while it’s developing.
- Leave the tan on for the recommended amount of time (between 1 - 5 hrs) the longer you leave it, the darker the tan will develop. Do not leave on longer than recommended as it may over-process and turn orange.
- For your first shower, do not use soap, just quickly rinse off the bronzer and pat yourself dry with a towel. DO NOT RUB. Continue to avoid sweating/swimming/tight clothing for the next 12-24 hours to let your tan fully settle on your skin.
- It takes up to 24-48hrs to fully process so it is normal to be pale again straight after rinse off - don't worry, it will continue to develop!
- If you notice any streaking after your first rinse, you haven't rinsed the bronzers off fully and need to rinse again - do this straight away. If streaks are left and not re-rinsed they will develop that way and affect the final result.
- From now on hydration is key. Keep your skin moisturised, use gentle skincare/haircare products so that the tan is not washed away by chemicals and avoid sweating/pools to extend the life and quality of your tan.
If for any reason you are not satisfied with your tan or service, whether it's my responsibility or you weren't able to follow aftercare instructions properly, please let me know ASAP. I'm happy to respray to ensure you get the perfect result, but this must be done within 24-48 hours of the original service.

PRE + POST CARE INSTRUCTIONS
PRE EYELASH EXTENSION PREPARATION RECOMMENDATIONS:
The only preparation recommended is that you wear no eye makeup to your service appointment as it interferes with the adhesives, remove contact lenses and for best results avoid oil based products for at least 48hrs before your appointment.
POST EYELASH EXTENSION CARE:
- Avoid getting your lashes wet within the first 24 hours after your application.
- For the first 48 hours after application it is suggested to avoid swimming, saunas, or steam rooms.
- It is best to avoid oil based eye products as they will weaken the bond of your adhesive. These include cleansers, moisturisers, cleansing oils/water, aromatherapy oils, spray toners, coconut/rosehip oils, eye creams, mascaras etc. If you use cleansers that aren't safe for extensions you must take care to wipe the cleanser off your face rather than rinse, as residual product will wash into your lashes.
- Do not pick, pull or rub your lashes.
- Do NOT use face cloths, sponges, makeup pads, cotton buds or other items on or near your lash extensions. These will tug at your lashes causing damage and premature lash loss.
- Do NOT use makeup remover wipes while wearing lash extensions. They're full of nasty oils, glycols and emollients that lash extensions do not like which cause your extensions to fall off prematurely. Very prematurely! They won't last long at all when using makeup wipes. Makeup wipes are not an ideal way to cleanse your face in general as they leave residual makeup on your skin and tend to dry out your skin.
- Sleeping on your back with a silk pillow case will help prevent fallout
- Avoid using mascaras that are not formulated for lash extensions.
- Do not use an eyelash curler, perm, or tint your lashes.
- If you experience any signs of irritation contact your lash extensionist immediately . You could be experiencing an allergic reaction to the extensions and need them removed.
- It is recommended to come for your eyelash extension touch up within 2-3 weeks to replace any outgrown lashes.
- Clean lash extensions last longer - lashes must be cleaned at least 3 x per week as part of your home care routine + chlorine, salt, sweat and oils should be removed immediately from lash extensions to maintain the integrity of your lash adhesive.
Some clients believe that keeping their lash extensions away from water will keep them on longer, however this is very untrue and has quite the opposite effect! Your lash extensions will fall off prematurely when you avoid cleansing them. Yes, always avoid water for the first 24 hours as per your lash technician's instructions - however this doesn't mean don't get them wet forever!
- Use a specific lash extension foaming cleanser and brush to ensure you're getting an anti bacterial solution on your lashes to maintain eye and lash health. Using a lash specific cleanser will avoid potential glycols, oils and other no-no's for lash extensions that are often found in regular facial cleansers.
- Ask you extensionist for advice on cleaning your lashes at home!
