MicroArt Eyeliner FAQ’s
The answers to these questions apply for MicroArt only. MicroArt is proprietary, unique, and unlike any other permanent or semi-permanent cosmetic treatment in the market today. It was scientifically developed to look natural — and avoid the many unpleasant or dangerous side effects all too common with other forms of permanent makeup or microblading. (50% of MicroArt clients are repairing bad permanent makeup done elsewhere)

Your technician will work with you to help choose the most natural looking color and design.
