I have been working in the field of Cosmetology for over 40 years. In 1992 I found my path to permanent makeup and in 2006 I became certified by the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP.org). With each procedure, I am committed to listening to my client’s needs so that I can provide them with an individualized experience in order to truly make them feel more confident. I am passionate about making all my clients look and feel their best each day.

Permanent Eyeliner

Eyeliner gives a definition that makes eyes stand out, appear less tired, and frames them to make them looker bigger and beautiful. Cosmetic companies make millions each year off eyeliner sales alone, as most women do not feel dressed without it. It is difficult for many people to apply, however, and some may even have allergies that prohibit them from wearing it. Others have to give up wearing eyeliner as they get older and their vision fades or their hands are not steady enough to create a straight line.

You no longer need to worry about these things with permanent eyeliner. A Natural Look Permanent Makeup by Marti can give you natural looking permanent eyeliner that looks just as good first thing in the morning as it does when you are out in full makeup. I use topical anesthetic for all procedures.

The pigments used for facial tattoos are formulated specifically for that area, and are different than body ink. As a SPCP certified permanent cosmetic professional, I use only pigments approved by the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP.org). Working with someone who is part of SPCP has many benefits. We have to pass many rigorous standards in order to SPCP Certification.

I have over 40 years of experience in the field of Cosmetology and for many years have been an examiner for the Cosmetology State Board. Trusting your permanent makeup to a SPCP Certified technician can assure you of the best results.

I would love to meet with you and provide a free consultation to help you determine if permanent eyeliner is right for you. Call me today for an appointment!

Permanent Eyebrows

If you have loss of eyebrow hair due to thinning hair, alopecia, or cancer treatment, permanent eyebrows are the perfect solution. With over 40 years of experience, A Natural Look permanent makeup by Marti provides natural and realistic results with permanent makeup for your eyebrows. If you regularly use an eyebrow pencil to enhance your facial features, I recommend that you look into permanent eyebrows. They can save you time, money, and increase your self-confidence.

Natural permanent eyebrows are just a phone call away. I provide free consultations to men and women throughout Albany, New York. The actual procedure will take between 2 and 3 hours. I include a follow-up appointment to allow time for healing. A follow up is always included to determine if your permanent eyebrows need further enhancement.

Permanent eyebrows are ideal for the following:

• Those with busy schedules
• Athletes
• Elderly with poor vision
• Anyone with shaky hands
• Those who have over-tweezed eyebrows
• Hair loss from cancer, medication, or thyroid problems
• Anyone who desires to always look their best
• And more!

I always ensure that my clients remain as comfortable as possible throughout their procedure. I will numb the area we will be working on with a topical anesthetic. Most clients are surprised at the minimal discomfort they experience. In just a few short hours, you will have permanent, natural looking eyebrows that you will never need to draw in again. You will need to receive a touch-up once every two to three years to enhance the colors.

Over time its important to have an occasional refresh to maintain your permanent makeup. Call me today to find out more about permanent eyebrow makeup or visit my convenient location in Albany, NY.

Brows before and immediately after

Brows from a few yrs ago, client now came in for eyeliner. This is immediately after.

Many people ask about longevity of permanent makeup. It varies for each person. These are brows I did 4 yrs ago. Clients next picture is immediately after a refresh and a request for a bolder brow. They will soften over the 10 days of healing.

Permanent Lip Makeup

Do you want beautiful, full, and perfectly shaped lips even without lip liner or lipstick? If you do not feel dressed without your lip color, you will love permanent lip makeup done by A Natural Look Permanent Makeup by Marti in Albany, NY. 

The lips are a sensitive area of our body so I make sure to topically numb the area. Most clients say they experience very little discomfort. Immediately after application, your lips may be slightly swollen and the color will be more intense than after healing. Clients have a choice of very natural enhancement or a more intense color.

I have decades of experience as a Cosmetologist, with over 20 year experience teaching. I originally began studying permanent makeup 22 years ago and my continued advanced education and long background of color expertise helps me to always exceed the expectations of my clients. To maintain my certification from the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP), I am required to adhere to strict professional standards:

• Continuing education courses are required each year
• I use only pigments that have revealed their complete ingredient list to the SPCP
• Regular OSHA training to adhere to the highest standards in safety and sanitization processes

Permanent lips can enhance your lip shape, irregular lip lines, and add subtle or more intense color. Please call me today to schedule your free consultation!
