I'm glad you're here

Okay...I confess, I love all the glitz and glam, but don't let that fool you... I can get "Country" with the best of them but not without my lipgloss💄. 

I grew up in the city but would visit my Aunt and Uncle's lake cottage in the country on my Spring and Summer breaks.  Later, my life got shifted when my family moved, my senior year of high school, to a small town outside of Charlotte, NC.  I knew no one!  I look back now and realize those things were foundational in teaching me how to connect and adapt with different types of people, locations and more.   

Before becoming a PMU artist, I thought I found my niche in a medical referral business in the travel insurance industry.  I loved connecting with doctors around the world and helping patients get the medical assistance they needed.  As many experienced, COVID caused the world to stop as did my former career.  It was time to reinvent myself.


I was looking for something fresh and new!  I wanted to do something fun, exciting and fulfilling. 


Today, as a multi-certified PMU and Paramedical Tattoo Artist, that is exactly what I get to experience everyday, yet my desire goes beyond that.  I want your experience with Restored Cosmetics, from the start, to be one you always remember.  


Of course, I want you to be 'Wowed' with the services you came for, but ultimately my gift to you, is one that would resound long after you leave the studio.  I want you to know and feel that you are welcomed, special, listened to, peaceful, encouraged....and BEAUTIFUL!  Plus, I want us to have fun while you are here!


With all that being said, I am really grateful for you.  I know there are other choices you have, but I am grateful you chose Restored Cosmetics for your permanent makeup and paramedical needs.  

We will do our very best to serve you and make this experience one you won't soon forget.
