    Welcome, my name is Kaytlin!

Located in beautiful Kelowna, BC. I am the owner and permanent makeup artist at Birds of Prey Cosmetics. The beauty industry is truly where my heart lies, the opportunities I have to make new and lasting connections everyday while also helping individuals feel their their most confident, is what I live for!

 

    At Birds of Prey Cosmetics we offer permanent makeup such as Microblading, Combination brows and other popular beauty services designed to enhance your unique, natural self. We believe permanent makeup should be soft, natural and undetectable, with the ability to fade and age gracefully.

Come join me in my relaxing, private studio space where local art is on display, listen to good music and have great conversation while I give you the eyebrows you have been wishing for!

Microblading, Fusion/Combo & Powder Brows

Be Prepared

Here are the guidelines to ensure the best results for your appointment:

  • Refrain from exercising within 24 hours prior to your appointment.

  • Shield your face from the sun and tanning booths for at least 1 week before the session.

  • If you've had Botox or any chemical facial treatments, wait at least 3 weeks before coming in for microblading, combo/powder brows.

  • Permanent makeup is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. 

  • Let your brows grow naturally; I will shape them during your appointment.

  • For the best healing and color retention:

  • Avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours before the procedure.

  • Steer clear of caffeine on the day of your session.

  • Do not take blood-thinning medications like Aspirin and Ibuprofen.

  • Stop using anti-aging/retinol creams at least 2 weeks prior to your permanent brow appointment.

  • Ensure your skin is well-moisturized and your brows are exfoliated to remove any dead skin cells before your appointment. The condition of your skin significantly impacts healing and the lasting effects.

After Care

Here are the healing instructions for a 6-8 week period:

  • First 24 hours: Keep your brows dry. Gently blot them with a cotton round every hour to remove any perspiration.

  • Next 7 days: Wash your brows twice a day, in the morning and at night, using lukewarm water and unscented soaps like Cetaphil or CeraVe. Allow them to air dry or pat them dry gently. Afterward, apply a pea-sized amount of the provided aftercare ointment to each brow. Apart from washing, keep your brows dry and away from dirt and debris.

  • Additional ointment: Apply a small amount of ointment throughout the day only if your brows feel very tight, dry, or itchy. Avoid excessive application, as it can lead to pigment loss.

  • Water submersion: Refrain from submerging your brows in water. This includes avoiding showering, excessive sweating, saunas, and swimming, as these activities can result in poor pigment retention.

  • Sun protection: Protect your brows from the sun's rays, including indoor tanning, at all times. UVA/UVB rays can cause your brows to fade prematurely. Remember to use SPF daily.

  • Flaking and itching: Do not pick or scratch your brows when they start to flake or itch. This could lead to scarring and compromised pigment retention.

  • Clean hands: Wash your hands thoroughly before touching your brows.

  • Avoid anti-aging products: Refrain from using anti-aging serums like Retinols, Retin-A, and acids on your forehead, as these can contribute to premature fading.

  • Ointment usage: Only use the ointment provided by the artist. Apply it sparingly when your brows are very dry or tight. If you have oily skin, you might not need to use ointment at all.

By following these instructions, you'll ensure proper healing and prolonged color retention for your brows.

Regenerate

What to expect

Following your initial session, your brows remain a work in progress and will necessitate a follow-up appointment to refine their shape, enhance color, and achieve desired density.

Post-appointment, it's common for your brows to feel tender, akin to a sunburn. Experiencing itching and flaking throughout the healing process is also a normal occurrence.

During the initial healing phase, typically days 1-3, your brows will appear at their darkest. Throughout this active healing period, the color may shift, fade, and then reappear. Once fully healed, expect your brows to be 40%-50% lighter than immediately after your session.

    • Answer: Yes, a thorough consultation allows you to customize color, shape, and style according to your preferences.

  6. Is permanent makeup truly permanent?

  7. What's the healing process like?

    • Answer: Initial healing takes 1-2 weeks, with complete healing occurring around 6-8 weeks post-procedure.

  8. Can I exercise or swim after getting permanent makeup?

    • Answer: It's recommended to avoid intense physical activities and water exposure for the first week after the procedure to ensure proper healing.

  9. Can I wear makeup over my permanent makeup?

    • Answer: Yes, you can apply makeup over permanent makeup, but avoid the area until it's fully healed.

  10. What's the aftercare routine for permanent makeup?

    • Answer: Aftercare includes keeping the treated area clean, avoiding water submersion, and applying prescribed ointments as directed.

  11. Is it safe to get permanent makeup if I have allergies or sensitive skin?

    • Answer: Prior to the procedure, discuss any allergies or sensitivities with your artist to ensure a safe application.

  12. Do I need to schedule a touch-up appointment?

    • Answer: Yes, a follow-up appointment is essential to refine the results and ensure the longevity of the permanent makeup.

  13. Can you go over an existing work?

    • Answer: Covering existing work varies based on saturation and expectations. It's often called a "cover up" and might require additional effort and skill. In most cases, an artist will recommend laser removal sessions first. This approach aims to ensure optimal results by addressing previous work that might affect the outcome.

Testimonials

"I love my new brows! Not only was my experience at Birds of Prey Cosmetics more than I could have hoped for, but the studio is so clean, bright and beautiful. Kaytlin took so much time and care to make my brows look beautiful. My brows have never looked this good!!"

I have always struggled with drawing in my eyebrows every day during my makeup routine. I knew I wanted microblading done but had a million questions! Kaytlin answered all of them and made me feel so comfortable. The entire process was incredible! And I have never felt so confident with my new brows! 12/10 recommend Kaytlin.

Kaytlin was amazing during the whole experience! She made me feel extremely comfortable and was incredibly detail oriented when perfecting my brows. She is talented, knowledgeable, and interesting to talk to! I had only just met her the first session and by the second session I trusted her fully and was not at all disappointed. I would 100% refer her to any friend! She even gives out the sweetest little goodie bags for her customer appreciation, which I think is a really nice touch. Her studio is clean and has a great vibe. I know where I’ll be going for all of my future brow needs!! Thanks Kaytlin!
