Permanent Makeup Tampa FL





Laura Sherwood began doing permanent makeup in 1992. She founded Advanced Cosmetic Techniques in 1997 and since then has worked full time as a permanent cosmetic makeup artist. Her knowledge and creative ability are apparent by her skill in applying permanent makeup.


Laura uses only the hand method of applying permanent cosmetic makeup; no tattoo machine!  With this technique a mineral-based cosmetic pigment is placed just below the surface of the skin by using a gentle, etching motion.  Although Laura originally learned to apply permanent cosmetic makeup with a tattoo machine like everyone else, she found that the hand method is much more gentle on her clients and also results in a softer, more natural look.


Laura has been featured on the Channel 10 Morning Show, Channel 10's "The Spot" and in Tampa Bay's Best Magazine. She has many clients from Florida and all over the United States.
