If beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, it’s also in the hands of Tracie Cervero Gifford, owner and artist at A Brilliant Beauty Boutique off Wekiva Springs Road. Combining expert technique and personalized service, Tracie ensures her clients radiate their inner beauty.
“Women exude beauty when they feel beautiful and confident – it truly comes from within,” Tracie says. “Along with providing highly personalized service, I love helping my clients take the mystery out of make-up through group workshops or one-on-one lessons. I show them techniques to address their concerns or tips that simplify their daily routine.”
And, according to Tracie, one of the most common concerns her clients face is sparse, misshapen eyebrows.
“The most common critique women have about themselves is related to their eyebrows,” Tracie says. “Somewhere along the way, they or an inexperienced waxer has taken too much off their brows, and the hairs just never grew back. However, utilizing an exciting new technique called microblading, I can fill in, shape, or create eyebrows without removing or damaging the natural brow hairs.”
A semi-permanent treatment, microblading allows the artist to deliver pigment into the client’s brow line via fine hair-like strokes (similar to a tattoo) resulting in a professionally shaped, natural brow design that lasts 10 to 18 months.
“I began microblading because I knew women would find it helpful,” Tracie says, “but I never realized it would be such a profound and positive transformation for so many of them.”
