Certified by the Institute of Permanent Cosmetic Make-Up

I’m Karma Vieira, founder of Make-Up Alternatives, and the Beauty Art Academy. At Make-Up Alternatives permanent makeup studio, I bring countless clients effortless beauty solutions to look and feel their best.

I have spent the past 20 years perfecting my minimally invasive, hand-method of tattooing for precise, and practically painless permanent make-up. This method allows me to create individual hair lines, sharply defined lines, feathering and shading for an incredibly realistic and natural look. This non intensive method also causes minimal discomfort and less inflammation to the skin resulting in better healing and longer lasting tattoos.

I work with each client to identify their specific needs, wants, and pain-points to create a naturally flawless look. Wake up feeling confident, beautiful, and instantly put-together with your ideal eyes, lips or brows. I also offer scalp enhancement, and areola repigmentation to create realistic solutions so that you can feel like yourself again.

Whether you are looking to show yourself some love, give yourself that boost of confidence you deserve, or just simplify your life with a streamlined routine, you can trust that my unique permanent make-up method will reveal your natural beauty within, and leave you feeling carefree and radiant.
