I believe custom mixing solutions is so important to give that natural beautiful glow. So I can guarantee your color and application will always be flawless. My appointments are booked for 30 to 45 minutes. My reason behind this is because I am painting your body and it is so important to pay attention to every detail!

I can’t wait to share my passion with you and I hope to see you soon!
