I got my eyebrows done by Julie and I could not be happier with the results! I did a lot of research on Yelp and Instagram about microblading and decided I would make an appointment with Caress since their results were exactly what I was looking for and their price was reasonable. If you want good results, you have to pay the price. My mom got her brows done several times in the past and cared too much the cost and I think her results suffered.
Both Julie and Michelle were extremely friendly and talked with me during my appointment. After I showed her a few photos from their Instagram and Yelp, she made her suggestions and penciled an outline of where she would microblade. I was pretty picky and commented on areas I wanted different. After agreeing on the shape, length and width of my future brows, Julie did her thing (of course I had numbing cream, which can make the experience virtually painless). Julie was very good about noticing if the numbing cream was wearing off and made sure I remained comfortable.
After about a month to six weeks I came back for my complimentary touch up sesh. I thought my brows already looked pretty good and took the color really well. But I did have a few areas I wanted touched up. Julie noticed exactly where to add more hair strokes and I did want my brows to come a little closer together and wanted them slightly lengthened. She was happy to make the changes although she didn’t recommend going in too far to the middle of the face cause it could look unnatural.
All in all, I’m happy with my experience and I have several people already interested in making an appointment with Caress Permanent Makeup!
If you’re serious about getting your brows done, this is the place to go!!! I am super happy with my results!!!! I don’t wanna sound like an advertisement but if you want fuller, darker, symmetrical, AND natural looking brows, Caress is the one!!! They are so sweet and take their time drawing your brows. Not only do they measure the right brow shape for your face, but her coloring is superb!!!
My friend and I got our brows done and the same time and Julie was so nice to schedule us in together. The process takes about 2 hrs but it goes by pretty fast… Just make sure you eat before you come haha!!! I wont lie, it hurts, but they put numbing cream on and there is really little to no pain after!!!! WHICH IS AWESOME!!!!!Maybe a little tightness and itching while it is healing but really nothing to complain about.
As your brows heal, you’ll start to notice the fine details of their work and how natural they look!! Note: Don’t freak out when you first get them done, just wait until it starts to peel and heal (about 1-2 weeks?). Follow their care instructions and leave the cream they put on until it goes away. It’ll look funny and shiny for a bit but it’s worth the end results!
Every time I hear someone cry about how annoyed they are with their brows, I recommend Caress. They are one of the best with GREAT pricing!!!!!! No one can ever tell I got them done because they look so natural!!! Do it girls (or boys), commit to an appointment here and you wont regret it!!!!
Julie and the rest of the staff at Caress are AMAZING! I got microblading for my eyebrows as well as top and bottom eyeliner done. The entire process on my first visit took about 3 hours. It seems long, but they do tell you beforehand how long it will take.
The microblading itself was painful, even with the numbing cream, but Julie did ask if it was hurting too much she would stop and put more on and then continue, but I braved it out the on the first application. After the first application, she put on more numbing cream, waited about 10-15 minutes then did it a second time, and repeated the process for a total of 3 applications. And yes by the second application, my eyebrows were good and numb, lol.
I have gotten my eyebrows tattooed before, probably about 10 years ago I think, and so they already have faded to a “pinkish” color. Julie did warn me that it might not catch with the microblading, and as it healed, I did notice that it didn’t catch. So I went in and did a touch up about 6 weeks later. She noticed it and told me that she would go a little bit deeper this time and use a darker color than she did the first time. So hopefully it works!!!
As for the eyeliner, it was another staff that did it. She was an older Korean lady who was very nice. The procedure was the same as the microblading. Numbing cream then she tattooed the eyeliner. There was some discomfort because I mean it’s SUPER CLOSE to your eyeball, and there were times I thought she would hit my eyeball and was scared as crap, BUT she didn’t =) Lol.
I will be going back in January to get a touch up for them because I want the eyeliner to be thicker since I have big eyes and want to make them appear smaller.
They also are very quick in responding to you when you message them through Yelp. I love their customer service and after my first appointment they actually gifted me w/ this artisanal soaps that smelled really good. I would definitely recommend them if you are interested in getting permanent makeup.
