Permanent Makeup by Katia
My name is Katia.
I am a licensed esthetician, electrologist , and permanent makeup artist. Permanent makeup is my real passion. I am originally from Russia and came to the United Sates in 1998. I have a bachelor degree in engineering and my engineering background makes me strive for precision, perfection, and symmetry; while my artistic side helps me to see natural and organic flow in the most important facial features: eyes, eyebrows and lips.
After completing my initial Permanent Makeup training in 2006, I am constantly trying to improve my skills. I received advanced training from the best Permanent Makeup and Tattoo artists of US, Canada, Russia, Ukraine and Italy.
In my work I use different devices and techniques: from a rotary Permanent Makeup pen to state of the art digital machine to hand-tools. My recent training was in Microblading for eyebrows, the latest technique that allows creating a natural 3-dimensional hairstroke eyebrows. Another new trend I certifyed in is Smoky Lash Enhancement for eyeliner.
I am a member of both major Permanent Makeup Organizations in the US: Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP, www.spcp.org) and American Academy of Micropigmentation (AAM, www.micropigmentation.org). I also participate in many online permanent makeup groups and boards that gives me an opportunity to network and learn latest trends and developments in my profession.
