What our clients have to say…
When it really comes down to it… it’s how they feel that matters the most!


“I am a physician and therefore very aware of professional standards and infection risk from procedures such a micro pigmentation.  I had lost a lot of my eyebrows/eyelashes due to a medication side effect and had received a recommendation to The BeautyInk Gallery.

Not only was Shauna an outstanding artist, but also she adheres to the strictest professional standards; is caring; and constantly exploring the latest improvements within this field.  She offers a wonderful service to many affected by health issues and the results are terrific.  I was amazed and delighted, and highly recommend The BeautyInk Gallery to my patients.

Many thanks, Shauna.”

Youthful Make up Tips
Some of our Favorite Products

touch eclat

1. Conceal the Eye Area: Use an orange base concealer under the eyes and in the corner and eye socket. This will eliminate the grey violet colour that comes with age and fatigue. In the deep areas add a light reflector such as Touch Eclate (shown on left) by Yves Saint Laurent. This will make the sunken areas look fuller and more youthful.


jane erridale2. Even Skin Tone: As we age our skin gets sun damaged and patchy. You can use a powder mineral make up that’s easy to apply and has a build in SPF like Jane Iredale. Loose has more glow to it, the pressed in more matt. Two shades work the best, light down the lower half of the face and neck, a darker from the cheek upward for a sun kissed look.

3. Higher Brow Arch: As gravity takes it toll, creating a higher arch will give you eye the appearance of being more awake and bright eyed. A Dior Brow Pencil works well just above the natural arch and you can soften it with a brush. Christian Dior has beautiful colour range.

By adding a more dominate top eyeliner hugged in the lash line it brings the attention upward not down.  If you need – (which I don’t necessarily recommend) to put a bottom liner on, always keep it a few shades lighter than the top. ie Black on top or dark navy blue… with a light taupe on the bottom softened. I love the Make up Forever Brow Correctors as they come in great colours and can be used thick or thin.  *Always remember Moisture is our best friend when it comes to our skin. So use one that hydrates well and you will find when your skin is moist if will always look years younger.
