My name is Sara and I am a coffee lover, cat fanatic and Sephora addicted makeup artist.
I am a professional Sacramento makeup artist with over 16 years experience specializing in bridal, editorial and personal and group makeup lessons.
My makeup mantra is less is more but I can certainly rock out a smoky eye. My goal with makeup is to make you feel beautiful through a fresh modern approach. Makeup shouldn't be confusing and I try to emulate that through application and teaching.
A San Francisco bay area native, I currently reside in Folsom with my husband, son and 2 kitties. I provide my makeup services throughout El Dorado county, Placer county and the greater Sacramento region.
Whether you are a bride looking for a makeup artist for your big day or a photographer needing makeup for a photo shoot, I'm your girl! I absolutely love what I do and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
What is microblading?
How long does it last?
Microblading is an advanced technique of cosmetic tattooing that is done by a process of implanting color pigment beneath the surface of the skin with a row of micro sterile, disposable needles that form a blade shape which will produce the appearance of hair where there isn't any, or add more to enhance and create fullness where hair already exists. This is with a manual hand tool, not a machine.
Does microblading hurt?
Topical anesthetic cream and gel are used for numbing before and during your procedure. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the entirety of the procedure. Most clients say it does not hurt at all! However, please note you will be more sensitive on your menstrual cycle.
What will affect my new brows?
Sun exposure: The sun fades the pigment faster so sun block & hats should be your new best friends! (Besides your beautiful new brows)
The regeneration of skin cells: The longer the regeneration takes, the longer the pigment holds.

How do I book an appointment?
Appointments can be made at the link below. A non-refundable deposit is required to book with Sara. Because of the demand for this procedure, once your appointment is booked, 2 hours of time will be reserved for you and you only, which is why this is non-refundable. If you have to reschedule please do so within 48 hours.
The treatment will fade over time and a touch-up is required 4-8 weeks after the initial procedure and then every 8-10 months. Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including sun exposure, chemical peels (glycolic, lactic, etc.), how active the client is, and how fast each individual's cell turnover is. Please note that final results and time frame cannot be guaranteed as each skintype will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates.
Touch ups are needed for cosmetic tattoo procedures, with each new procedure requiring 2 or more visits. The initial procedure followed by a touch up procedure 30 days later. It is very common and normal for microblading to fade substantially the first time it is done which is why it requires layering and is a two to three step process. Previously tattooed eyebrows may require one or two additional appointments and rarely achieve the same results to those who have no previous tattoo work because of the existing scar tissue and color under the skin, even if it isn't visible.
