Hi I’m Manuela Gabriella Incendiario , I have been in the industry for 15 years and I am recognized as an ethnic skin specialist and celebrity ethnic skin artist.
In the year 2000 I graduated with honours in Beauty Therapy and was then given an amazing opportunity to work onboard SilverSeas luxury cruise ships as a beauty therapist then spa manageress.
After traveling the world for 3 years and having achieved all I had set out to do, I then opted for a different challenge. I moved to London to allow myself the opportunity to grow within my creative career. It was during this period that I met Tracey Simpson of Natural Enhancement (UK) whom is considered a leader in the permanent make up industry in the UK. After realising the benefits of permanent cosmetics, I completed a comprehensive all-round permanent cosmetics training course In 2003.
Upon my return to South Africa I 2005 I combined my passion for “natural” looking permanent cosmetics and my 10 years of make up cosmetic experience to present you with Flawless Professional Cosmetics. Over the years I have spent many hours in my career furthering my education and I take pride in my training with a few masters – Sviatoslav Otchenash, Monica Ivani and Mary Richardson to name a few. Mary coming from Florida does a huge amount of dark skinned ethnic clients (hairstrokes and ombré) and this sparked my interest to Master Fitz 4-6 skin types .
Many professional technicians are not skilled in the process of micro-pigmentation for ethnic/African-American skins.
As a result, these clients are often turned away from professionals at clinics and salons. This is due to the complex nature of color matching for dark skin. Even with the incredibly diverse selection of colors available to most professional technicians, it is still, according to many of them, difficult to determine a suitable match.
Rather than risk a result that is not pleasing to the client or legal backlash of some sort, some professionals instead refuse treatment. This has long been an unfortunate aspect of the permanent makeup industry.
In recent years, however, there has been a positive trend in ethnic /Afro American Permanent Makeup application. Many clinics are now offering color matches that are recommended especially for African-American skin. As well as a deeper understanding in the nature of dark skins.
I can’t wait to share my knowledge on this skin type and guide you to have perfect healed results as well as improve you confidence on Fitz 4-6.
