Have your eyebrows become sparse, faded with age or disappeared completely?  Anyone who desires an even brow or need to fill in sparse brows will love this procedure (and the time saved by not applying makeup)! As the hair strokes heal they tend to soften up and eventually over time will resemble a soft powder filled look.

With hair stroke eyebrows you can now go swimming, hiking, or exercising without the embarrassment of losing your eyebrows!


No more dull, tired eyes. Wake up with bright eyes everyday. Just imagine, no more smudged eyeliner and no more unsightly smears.

Shape and color is tailored to each individual client. Whether you’re looking for a soft, subtle line or if you prefer a dramatic, designer line, this procedure enhances the appearance of the eyes, giving the illusion of thicker lashes and defining the eye.


Permanent cosmetics for your lips can include lipliner and/or full lip color or shading. The procedure can correct asymmetrical lips and make them appear younger, fuller and more defined. No more applying lipstick all day long. There are many pigment colors and shades to choose from!


Do you have a hypo-pigmented or a whitish colored scar? By matching skin tones with flesh colored pigments scars can be blended with surrounding skin color thereby diminishing the appearance of the scar.


Areolar Repigmentation is the process of creating realistic, well-proportioned areolae with properly chosen pigments and skilled application. It is an ideal procedure for breast cancer survivors, breast augmentation recipients and anyone who is unhappy with the size, shape or coloration of their areolae.


Has your permanent makeup changed color or faded to a blue, gray, green,  pink, orange or purple hue? Have you previously has a procedure and are unhappy with the shape? Kathy has extensive experience in providing color and shape correction.


Permanent make-up is accomplished by placing microscopic dots of pigment color in the dermal layer of the skin using a specifically designed instrument. The procedure may take one session followed by 1 – 2 touchups to achieve your desired results.  The first session may take one to three hours.  Touchup sessions will be shorter depending on the work to be done.

Depending on your skin type, age, and sun exposure, you can expect your permanent make-up to last from 5-10 years. Over this period of time the color will very gradually fade to the point where you will want to have it touched up. If your original work was done at Beauty by Design, you can be assured that fees for touch ups in the future are minimal. Think of the analogy of paint on a car. Its baked enamel withstands sun, rain, and years of weather wear and tear, but after a while even a car needs a touch up to keep it looking its best.

Not as much as you might think, and it is only a minor, temporary discomfort because Kathy applies a topical anesthetic gel before beginning the procedures for eyebrows, eyeliner, scar camouflage, beauty marks, and areolar repigmentation. She applies the gel throughout the procedure to keep the area numb. Several women have described the eyeliner as a tickling sensation.

According the Center for Disease Control, there have been no incidents of HIV attributable to tattooing, nor has there been an increase of Hepatitis B in those having permanent makeup. Kathy’s extensive experience as a registered nurse is your assurance that she is very well apprised of proper sanitary conditions for performing procedures.

A wide range of colors are available to complement your skin tone and hair color. Because she has been an artist for 50 years, particularly in the medium of oil painting, Kathy enjoys custom mixing colors according to your preference.
