About Us



Permanent makeup is our greatest passion – we love what we do. We take on challenges, learn from mistakes and take advantage of new opportunities to develop new techniques and innovations with the utmost professionalism and a constant focus on achieving the best results. We enjoy what we do every day, and that is something our clients and students see and appreciate the most. 



We thrive to help our clients and students understand the importance they place in our business. At the same time, we  use our approach to inspire them and make sure they are 100% satisfied with our service.  Above all, we put your needs and expectations first.



Together, we have more than 15 years of experience in the beauty industry. Having participated in numerous advanced training courses and acquired a wide range of different techniques, we have ultimately gone on to develop our own. In 2019, Kristela partnered with BB Glow Academy as a Franchise owner in California to teach a revolutionary protocol. We are proud to say our reputation and 5 star reviews speaks volume of what we stand for as a trustworthy and well respected business. 



Kristela Keegan opened this business early 2018. From starting in a small 90 sq. ft. room in Willow Glen, Ca. to a store front studio and academy at The Crossroads in Carmel-by-the-sea. She had one goal in mind--to grow into a business that not only offers the best permanent makeup procedures in town. But to also bring in other services in the beauty industry that will set her aside from the rest in her field.  

Over 4000+ procedure done, the goal is to enhance your natural beauty without looking over done. We pride in quality service and will never jeopardize the end results. The owner and founder thrives in perfection and attends 2-3 additional trainings per year to advance her skill set and always stay up to date in trend. We never settle for less when it comes to our artistry.

Today, we now offer Tiny Dainty Tattoos under 3 inches in size and can custom a design that fits your needs. Addition to permanent cosmetics and tattoos, we offer Paramedical Tattooing;  3D Areolas, Scar/skin camouflage, and Tattoo Saline Removal. 



WHAT WE STAND FOR. Attention to detail. We are committed to the highest standards of quality and professionalism. Our clients and students trust us for many years with this approach.


LEARN FROM US. Innovative and unique techniques. Developed by us with a focus on precise lines, vibrant colors, and complex, natural shades.
