Anna & Kristina’s Beauty Call

The BeautyInk Gallery was recently chosen for an episode of “Anna & Kristina’s Beauty Call” that aired on the Womens Network this May. We were chosen to represent Permanent Make up Practitioners, and we feel very honored for this opportunity to show our Artistry to Canada.

You will see first hand a live procedures on both eyebrows and eyeliner. We take the client through the process from before to after-  (the consultation, procedure and the final result). You will learn about the industry as well as things to look for when choosing a future procedure. We hope it will be interesting and informative for Canadian viewers.

Here’s what they had to say on their Blog. We received two thumbs up!

A More Sustainable You!!

Have you ever thought about the ECO Friendly effects of Cosmetics?

I bet you have never thought of permanent cosmetics as environmentally friendly product?

Well think again….!  With the hundreds of tubes of  lipstick, eye liner and lip pencil you will go through in your lifetime, it will all add up.  Not to mention the thousands of pounds of wasteful packaging they come in, going into our land fills and all the harmful chemicals you will have ingested every day.

Permanent cosmetics are created from plant and mineral based organic products. No harmful chemicals are added that will hurt you over time and no more fuss with packaging or all the hassle of  make up application each and every day.

Shauna recently went to a group discussion with the Vancouver Board of Change http://www.boardofchange.com/ and realized how sustainable our company really is.  It wasn’t just the fact that we save the environment with our service of permanent cosmetics, but also the fact that all our sterilizing products are bio-degradable and we have a recycling system in place.  When we created the Gallery we used recycled furniture that was her Omma and Oppa’s, we use recycled paper as well as recycle our ink cartridges as much as possible.

We also use a Santevia water filtration systemhttp://www.santevia.com/wellness/santevia_new/generic.asp?id=16&changeProp=SantProducts&title=Gravity%20Water%20System…so no bottled water here!

On May 20th we invite you to join us at our first of many make up parties right here at the Gallery, celebrating the new line from ARBONNE  Cosmetics an environmentally conscious company.

http://www.arbonne.ca/index.asp?lang=eng

ARBONNE  makes vegan friendly, natural cosmetics that are good for your skin and wont harm the environment.

Shauna has used the products and is so excited about them,  would love to share them with you, so you too can see for yourself these amazing products!  RSVP is required 604 639 3609 or info@beautyink.ca

So the next time you go to the cosmetic counter….take a conscious look at what you are buying within and outside the box. The plastic it’s wrapped in,  the box it comes in, the cardboard, the containers and ask yourself….can this be reused?  Then look at the ingredients…it might shock you at what you have been putting on your skin!

The Infamous J-LO Glow!

Last evening we joined the talented and sweet Ladies from the Kitty Club for the latest J-Lo flick- ” The Back-up Plan”
http://www.theback-upplan.com/
http://tengossip.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/back-up-plan-movie-poster-tight-shirt.jpg
Not only was it funny, sweet and entertaining, Jennifer still shows off her amazing signature glow.  We happen to know her secret!  Shauna worked with one of her make up artists a few years ago and learned the J-Lo secret glow. Jennifer uses YoungBlood Cosmetics. It’s a line of mineral make-up that comes in both loose (dewy look) and pressed powder(mat look). The loose powder is amazing and gives you that light reflective, radiant glow. You can layer it up for serious coverage and buff it in to increase the shine.  It’s great for the dewy look that will carry you through the summer season, giving you an SPF coverage of about 15.

Shauna has been using Youngblood faithfully now for years and introduces it to her clients as well as other film make-up artists in the city. Because it’s a mineral make up, it’s great for extremely sensitive skin or blemished complexions. The undertones are fabulous and the line caters to women of ethnicity. In Vancouver you can only purchase YoungBlood at the Absolute Spa in the Century Plaza or the Fairmont Hotel.http://www.getbetterlife.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/youngblood-cosmetics.jpg

When you come in for your custom make up lesson, Shauna will be happy to show this fabulous product and the many uses it has besides being a great power. http://www.ybskin.com/index.php

Custom lessons are $80 and will be the best money you have spent in along time. Not only will you learn what products are best for you,  but you will also learn your best colours, industry make up myths, how to correctly use make up brushes, their care, as well as where to invest your $$$ so you stop wasting it on products you never use. You too can know the industry insiders form one of Vancouver’s top award winning artists.

Enjoy the latest look and learn how to apply them to best suite your features, so you too can be on the cutting edge of this years make up season.

Shock and Aww…The Street side Beauty!

Shauna was sent this documentary created by her friend Maxie’s Daughter about the Beauty Industry in Jamaica.  After watching it, she was amazed it exists and could only think about the lack of hygiene in such an environment.  But I guess to those that live there…it’s not an issue or a concern. Give it a watch and tell us what you think?

With the awareness of safety in our country, it is amazing what some women will do in the name of Beauty!!!

Interview with Shauna from BeautyInk Gallery

Shauna Magrath owner of  The BeautyInk Gallery is most proud of the ’service’ component to her makeup and permanent cosmetic boutique. Whether she is training women in naturally beautiful makeup application, providing the perfect brow shape, or using her artful hands to enhance a bride’s wedding-day glow, Shauna falls somewhere between the fairy godmother of beauty, and the cool,  older sister you always wanted.  Her boutique makes the perfect, post-winter destination in order to refresh and brighten your look. Consider it the more affordable version of that Caribbean cruise!

We are a make up service boutique, specializing in permanent cosmetics and custom make up creations for Ladies and Gentlemen. We work with all demographics from cancer and accident survivors to men wanting to dress in drag or to give a women a new look for the season. Our services range from custom lessons, make up applications, lash extensions, brow shaping and of course what we are best known for, our custom natural permanent cosmetics.

I was personally inspired to create this business after holding my grandfather as he passed to the other side. That moment has changed my life forever and made me look at what my contribution is to the world.  I have a gift and working in film was not allowing me to share it in a positive way.  Now I am able to help people who suffer every day and make their lived better.  If I died tomorrow I know I have made a difference in many peoples lives.

Everyone will be telling you ” You look great, what’s your secret?” You diverse to look your best without all the fuss, so don’t delay call now for your free consultation and let us show a better YOU!

What people ask most…Does it hurt?

There is a common misconception out there that having permanent cosmetics done is really painful. I guess at some places it would be, but at the BeautyInk Gallery your comfort is our main concern.

You may experience a little pinch during the (second step) called “Grazing” but with the combination of pre-numb (first step) and the anesthetic (third step), there is very little discomfort at all.We would not be able to preform such beautiful work if our clients were in pain. We have researched the best anesthetics in North America and after every procedure, most people say it was not painful at all.

What we experience the most is the clients personal fear. We understand it and appreciate that every person has fear around the procedures to some degree. With our experience and understanding, we are able to talk the client though the process and ease their anxiety.When the client returns for the follow-up, they are always at ease as they know it wont be as bad as they had imagined the first time.

So rest assured, if you are considering a permanent procedure, but are holding back because you think or heard it hurts…we do our very best to keep you comfortable throughout the entire process.Don’t let your mind overwhelm you from the liberation and years of freedom you will experience from the beautification that comes with permanent cosmetics!
It will transform you for years to come both inside and out!
