About Kim

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and my Permanent Makeup procedures. It’s very important to get all of your questions answered and feel comfortable before undergoing one of these very unique and wonderful treatments.

My name is Kimberly Armstrong, and first and foremost I’m the proud Momma of an entertaining and loving 15-year-old. When we are not hanging out or plotting our next adventure, I’m focused on working… and being the creative type, for me “working” means composing songs on the piano; mixing pigment colors together to create new colors; performing Permanent Makeup procedures and teaching traditional makeup application. I cannot do too many of these treatments each day: they are time-consuming and physically demanding, so I choose my clients carefully and put my heart and my full attention into every procedure that I perform. Each creation is special to me, and when we’re finished, your Permanent Makeup becomes artwork that we’ve created together!

I’ve been designing natural-looking Permanent Makeup since 2004, and I’ve completed thousands of procedures at many of the well-known spas throughout Southern California, including Spa Gregorie’s and Salon Sauvage. Before I got into this, I was a professional makeup artist and worked “on location” for Lancôme and Clinique – this helped me develop a knack for the most difficult part of the Permanent Makeup process: the design.

I later trained at the prestigious International Institute of Permanent Cosmetics and became certified in Micropigmentation. But my passion for being the best in the industry, despite the fact that the state of California does not regulate the tattooing industry, drives me to continue regularly training with a variety of schools and educators so that I can always deliver the most advanced techniques available, provide the absolute best products on the market and stay on top of all OSHA guidelines for health safety.

In 2014, I opened Beauty Hideaway (www.beautyhideaway.info), a unique makeup clinic tucked away in the back of the Laguna Hills Medical Center. Our clients enjoy makeup classes and other beauty  treatments (Permanent Makeup, lash extensions, facials and waxing) in a tranquil environment. In 2015, I was named the best in Permanent Makeup for Orange County by Modern Luxury Magazine (formerly Riviera).

If you’d like more information, I welcome the opportunity to speak with you over the phone. If Permanent Makeup feels like a good fit for you, I look forward to meeting you!
