“I Got My Permanent Makeup Done by Someone Else and I Didn’t Keep Any Color!”

Several times a month, I get phone calls from women who have been worked on by someone else (or in some cases, by more than one other technician) asking me, “why did I not keep my Permanent Makeup?

My First Experience Floating

If you’re an avid reader of my blogs, you will surely have noticed that I love checking out holistic health remedies. In fact, when any ailment of any type surfaces for me, it’s my holistic remedies I turn to first, and I adore adding new ones to my arsenal.

So I joyfully accepted the invitation to come “float” in a sensory-deprivation tank for an hour with my client (and newest BFF) Nicole, in the name of attaining more peace in my life… and seconds later, I bombarded her with zillions of questions. “How...
