ArtistryByRS provides hair, makeup, and semi-permanent makeup services out of Surrey, BC and its surrounding areas. Like many of us, Rupy grew up playing "dress up, dress up" which ignited her passion for everything beauty and fashion. In 2008, she decided to pursue this passion by enrolling at the world-renowned Blanche MacDonald Centre in Vancouver, BC, where she received her diploma.

Over the years, Rupy has had the opportunity to work with a variety of clientele, specializing from bridal to fashion. ArtistryByRS was born in 2017 with the support of family and friends encouraging her to showcase her work to the world. Fast forward to 2020, ArtistryByRS's makeup was featured in VOGUE Italia in collaboration with a local fashion line, nauni j.

Rupy's eagerness to continously grow and learn, brought her to the decision of adding another service to ArtistryByRS: Microblading. Rupy became a Certified Microblading Artist and added semi-permanent makeup to her services; eyebrow microblading and faux freckles.

ArtistryByRS's goal is to continue to provide more services and master every form of artistry in the beauty industry.

FAQ

Am I able to have the procedure?
You may not have this procedure if any of the following apply :
 
  • You are under the age of 18
  • You get Keloid scars
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have been on Accutane within 1 year
  • You have irritation of the skin of any kind such as blemishes, pimples, rash, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, sunburn on the area of procedure
  • Diabetic (consult your doctor)
  • Have HIV or Hepatitis or any other viral infections and/or diseases
  • Undergoing Chemotherapy (consult your doctor)
  • Epilepsy
  • Have a Pacemaker or major heart problems
  • Had an Organ transplant
  • You generally don’t heal well and develop infections easily
  • If your old tattoo is too dark (please contact me to send a picture so I can see how faded your old tattoo is)
 
Is Microblading right for me?
Microblading works best on these types of skin:
  • Dry skin type with tiny pores. Skin that’s thin but not super thin (I like to compare this skin to a grape). This type of skin is usually not very sensitive with non-translucent fair ivory skin tone and doesn’t bleed easily.
  • Normal to combination skin-type with small pores can be a bit oily to dry and sensitive or not sensitive (I like to compare this skin to an apple). This type of skin is usually non-translucent and can range from light to dark skin tones, young or mature skin and doesn’t bleed easily.
  • Normal to Oily skin with medium pores. Skin that is thicker and a bit oily ( I like to compare this skin to a lime). This type of skin is usually non-translucent and can range from light to dark skin tones, young or mature skin and doesn’t bleed easily.
Microblading will NOT WORK WELL for these types of skin:
  • Thick oily skin with large pores, tends to bleed easily (I like to compare this skin to an orange peel or grapefruit). The skin texture and constant production of oil will cause the hairstrokes to heal with a thicker diffused, softer look. I can work on this type of skin, however, you must be aware that your end result will look more powdered and blended than you would expect.
  • Super-thin, soft, hypersensitive, skin with barely any upper skin layer (I like to compare this type of skin to a peeled hard boiled egg or tomato, or sometimes like a marshmallow). Usually translucent and pale with invisible pores and can have rosacea or dermatitis. This type of skin bleeds VERY easily, has a harder time healing, Pigment can appear more ashy, blurred and patchy.
  • If you have an old tattoo that is still quite dark, the strokes will blend right into the old tattoo and results will not look as crisp as going over blank skin.
  • If you are a frequent smoker, your pigment may fade sooner.
  • If you are iron deficient or Anemic, your pigment may fade sooner and bleeding/bruising may occur during and after the procedure.
  • If you generally have problematic skin, bleed excessively, get infections easily, and do not heal well when cut or injured, you may want to reconsider having this procedure as the results are extremely dependent on the healing process.
 
Please be advised that all of ArtistryByRs' procedures are non refundable.
What is the pre-care for eyebrow microblading?
Please be aware:
  • Do NOT DRINK ALCOHOL (at least 24hrs) or CAFFEINE before the procedure
  • Do NOT  TAKE ADVIL or other blood thinners such a Aspirin, fish oil, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 48-72 hrs prior to your procedure. Extra strength Tylenol can be taken if you have low pain tolerance.
  • If you have recently tanned this will affect the outcome of the healed colour.
  • If you’ve had laser removal of previous work done by someone else, the treated area has now more scar tissue and can affect the outcome of the result.  More treatments may be necessary to have the skin take the colour.
  • Botox should be done 3 weeks before or 3 weeks after the procedure.
  • Avoid exercising the day of procedure as this will open up the pores.
  • Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
  • No waxing, threading or tinting 3 days before and at least 3 weeks after.
  • Immediately following your procedure, the tattooed area will appear to be darker and bolder in color and more sharply defined. Over the next 2 days, it will appear even darker and thicker as scabs begin to form. You must let the scabs naturally flake off bit by bit. It will take up to 14 days for scabbing to be over.
  • You may NOT get the area wet for too long or apply any kind of products (except what I provide for your aftercare) for at least 10 days after. NO makeup on the area for 2 weeks.
What is the aftercare for eyebrow microblading?
After your procedure you will leave with Vaseline covering your freshly microbladed eyebrows. Keep the Vaseline on until that evening. Before bed, blot your brows with a damp paper towel to clean the area and let them air dry.
For the next 10 days, clean your brows 3 times a day with water only.
  • do not scratch or pick at your brows
  • do not apply any products on your brows
  • avoid activities that may cause you to sweat (working out, sauna, direct sunlight, etc.)
What to expect after
  • Immediately after, the area will be extremely dark and will continue to darken over the next 48 hours as light scabs form in the area. 30-50% of your pigment will be contained within the scabs.
  • Some clients may experience a temporary warm colour to the pigment which will neutralize within the next few days.  
  • Over the next 7-14 days your scabs should flake off little by little. Some people scab in light flakes and some develop a thick scab, everyone is different. Absolutely do NOT pick at the scabs and make sure you follow the aftercare instructions closely to obtain the best results. If the scabbing phase is not over after 14 days, please continue your aftercare instructions until scabs are completely gone; it is NEVER acceptable or necessary to remove the scabs manually.  
  • After the scabbing phase is over, you will notice that the colour of your pigment seems foggy and muted because a layer of skin has grown over the pigment to seal it in. Not to worry, over the next several weeks, your skin will regenerate and the pigment will be more vibrant in once again.
  • The complete healing process takes no less than 6 weeks which is when the true orientation of the pigment will show.
  • You may apply an ice pack after your treatment to reduce any swelling or discomfort.
  • Remember, when completely healed, you will loose 20%-30% of the colour and thickness.
Will I need a touch up?
  • Your free touch-up will be 4-8 weeks after your initial microblading procedure. If you wait longer than 8 weeks, no show or cancel within 48 hours of your touch-up appointment, you will be charged $100 for further touch-up bookings.
  • The first appointment is about structure, design, and building hair strokes. The touch-up is about seeing how the skin heals and retains pigment, as well as making any necessary adjustments to achieve better symmetry, definition, or volume. In most cases, only a minor touch-up is necessary to fill in any sparse areas for a very natural look. However, if you are opting for a fuller more defined look, then the touch-up is recommended to achieve desired results.

How long does it last?
Microblading will fade over time and should be refreshed every 1-2 years for maintenance. Fading is desired as your skin and facial structure will change as aging occurs. However this does not mean that your semi-permanent makeup will completely disappear. Depending on  your skin and health, overtime your semi-permanent makeup may leave a soft haze of residual pigment behind. These factors will cause your semi-permanent brows to fade:
 
  • Iron deficiency
  • Sun exposure
  • Exfoliates

Does it Hurt?
A strong topical anesthetic cream and gel with 5% Lidocaine is used for numbing before and throughout the procedure for maximum comfort as pain tolerance will vary from person to person. Some say it feels like threading or dull scratching. You may bring 1-2 Extra strength Tylenol to take after our consultation for additional comfort if you have low pain tolerance.

How long does it take?
A two hour appointment is booked. The consultation will be the majority of this time. Numbing will be on for 20-25 min and the procedure itself is only around 30 min.

Is there anything I need to do before my hair and make up appointment?
  • Hair needs to be washed and completely DRY before your appointment or an extra fee may be added for drying services.
  • Face should be clean and free of any make up products
  • If appointment is on location, please assure a location is set up for the artist with seating, a table, and adequate lighting.
