The answers to the most frequently asked questions may be found here. However, reserving a consultation prior to your procedure is strongly encouraged. A consultation allows time for your unique and personal questions to be answered more thoroughly.



Will it hurt? Pain is subjective, however every measure is taken to ensure that you are completely numb and comfortable during the entirety of the procedure. Many clients are so comfortable, they enjoy a nap during the procedure.

Will I get to choose the pigment color? Yes, suggestions are made, but ultimately your decision is respected.

Will I get to see my new eyebrow shape prior to the procedure? Yes, after the new shape is mapped and measured, you will have ample time to decide if you are comfortable with the shape.

Will I have to remove my eyebrows? No, only the hair that falls outside of our predetermined shape is removed.

Will I still have to groom my eyebrows? Yes, hair will still grow as normal and will need to be groomed. Visit ILLUME MAKEUP + BROW STUDIO to maintain your eyebrow grooming.

Will you correct my old eyebrow tattoo or microblading? At the moment, corrective solutions are not offered.
