What You Need to Know

Facial and Eyelash Service FAQs


What should I expect at my first facial?
Glitter! Skin Studio's personalized facials will help heal, invigorate, and repair your skin.

What happens during my facial?
A lot of healing! First, your facial begins with a skin evaluation to determine the right products for your skin type. Your skin will then be deeply cleansed and exfoliated, and your blemishes will be extracted and nourished. A masque application will leave your skin refreshed, rejuvenated, and glowing. You'll also be treated to a luxurious facial, hand and arm massage!

When should I arrive for my facial appointment?
Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your appointment start time, so you can relax with some water in our beautiful environment before your facial begins. You will also fill in the New Guest Registration Form, where it will ask that you record your skin care habits, any medications you are on, and any known pre-existing skin conditions. I will review the Guest Registration Form with you in detail, to include the reasons you are coming for a facial.

What do I need to do before my facial appointment?
Preparing for a facial is quite easy! Just avoid exfoliating a few days prior to your treatment. This will prevent your skin from becoming too thin and sensitive.

Can I wear makeup to my facial?
Yes! There is no need to remove any makeup or creams before your treatment, as cleansing is part of your service.

What products do you use?

For skincare my  favorites are Elemis Skincare, COSMEDIX and, Maskcara.  For eyelash lifts and tints, I use the brand Lash Stuff located in the US.


What is a Lash Lift?

It is a new innovative way to perm your natural eyelashes with a dramatic gorgeous curl that lasts 6-8 weeks. 

Lash Lift details, please?

1. The procedure takes 40 minutes.

2.  You’ll never need an eyelash curler again.  

3.  No after care needed. 

4.  Wear in the pool, spa and shower. 

Do you offer eyelash tinting too?

Yes, absolutely!
