Three Stories Of Permanent Cosmetics

Carmella Gibellino-Schultz

Written By Kyra Marie Miller

Sarah W. was 30 years old when she became interested in permanent cosmetics. At the age of five she developed dark freckles on her pale lips. She recalls stories of children tormenting her at school about her freckles, causing her to be a very introverted person through time. Eventually she connected with Carmella who was able to successfully camouflage her freckles and define her lips, resulting in a natural, youthful, pink color!

“I would have to say that my lifestyle changed quite drastically after I had the procedure done. Carmella didn’t change my life; she gave me my life back! She is, quite simply, a sweet, caring, and talented artist! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Go see Carmella – she will give you an honest and compassionate assessment and a wonderful permanent makeup experience.”

Emily K. had been approaching her 40th birthday feeling like she’d lost her identity. As a stay-at-home mom to two young boys, she felt she had let herself go. Emily knew that being a mom is the best job in the world, but despite its many perks, it can be very demanding. At 40 years old, she thought her days of looking and feeling good were almost over. With permanent eyeliner and microblading, Carmella truly enhanced Emily’s face, and life!

“The women at The Permanent Cosmetic & Lash Studio do more for their clients than just makeup and skin, they change lives by how they make their clients feel. They spent so much time with me and I felt how much they cared about me. I feel like a woman again. My husband continues to compliment me even after years of marriage – I feel like I’m hanging out with my boyfriend again! I just can’t explain in words how indebted I feel to Carmella and the women at The Permanent Cosmetic Studio. They gave me the best 40th birthday present I could have ever asked for.”

Cheryl D. initially wasn’t even looking into permanent cosmetics for herself – but for her 80-year-old mother! But when she met with Carmella, she was pleasantly surprised how much time she gave her and expressed it was like talking to an old friend. Carmella happened to have a cancellation that afternoon and Cheryl trusted her enough to perform permanent eyeliner and lip blushing right there on the spot. She was floored by the results and a few days later called back to schedule an appointment for her eyebrows!

“Permanent cosmetics made me look and feel 10 years younger. I’ve never been so happy! I do nothing! I roll out of bed and I’m done! I feel pretty. I don’t feel fake. I feel womanly and I don’t know why I didn’t do this earlier! Carmella brings women together by empowering them, and permanent cosmetics is a lot cheaper than plastic surgery!”
