If you’ve never worn a Wonder Woman costume, go get one now. It seems counter-intuitive that hot pants paired with a bustier and go-go boots could make anyone feel invincible, but the combination is surprisingly empowering. Add the tiara and bracelets, and you will feel bullet-proof. Accessorize with the golden lasso, and you may find yourself taking days off work to attend Comic-Con. Seriously. Wear the costume at least once in your life. While the majority of grown-up, employed women don’t have the option of dressing up like Wonder Woman on a regular basis, we can still feel that same sense of powerful beauty all the time. If Wonder Woman was real, and you were close friends with her, she would let you in on a secret: Permanent Makeup.
BEAUTIFUL as Aphrodite… There’s a reason no one’s ever seen Wonder Woman applying makeup as she pilots her invisible jet. She’s got permanent eyeliner. What better way to accentuate her sky blue eyes and dark lush lashes? On an average day, she may rescue someone from an erupting volcano, or fight a ship full of pirates on the choppy seas. No man-made eyeliner can hold up to those conditions. Your average day may not bring you anywhere near a volcano or the ocean, but wouldn’t it be nice to know that if it did, you’re makeup would still be flawless?
STRONG as Hercules… No one can run around in hot pants every day unless they work out. You can bet Wonder Woman is putting in regular time at the gym. Think she packs a makeup bag? No way! Working out takes a lot of time. Putting on makeup shouldn’t. Permanent makeup gives you more time to spend on important things, like Pilates.
WISE as Athena… Wonder Woman is multi-lingual, well-educated in complex sciences, and an expert in military strategies. Oh, yes, she’s also a stunning beauty. (If she weren’t so awesome I would hate her!) Do you spend more time applying on your makeup than you do reading up on current events? Permanent makeup can free up time better spent on more educational pursuits.
SWIFT as Mercury… In the time it takes you to apply lip liner and lipstick, Wonder Woman can make it from D.C. to Cairo. The girl is fast! If you struggle with punctuality, and you’d rather show up late than show up without makeup, consider permanent makeup. Your family and friends are tired of waiting on you. Even just standing like Wonder Woman can make you feel like a warrior princess. Stand up straight, put your fists on your hips and hold your head high. See? I’m telling you, it works! Who doesn’t want to be a stronger, more powerful, more beautiful version of her current self? If makeup makes you feel good, permanent makeup will make you feel empowered. Make your personal transformation to Wonder Woman. No costume needed.
It’s so fun to part of someone’s wedding day! Recently, our bride Katelin along with her rather large wedding party, 8 bridesmaids joined us at La Dolce Salon & Spa for wedding day beauty prep. Prior to her big day she had her hair and makeup trials to make sure her look was exactly what she had envisioned. Our entire team wanted to completely please her and the gang. So thankful that Katelin sent her photos to us so we could see the end result which is stunning where the ceremony and reception took place the the Mustard Seed venue in Noblesville, IN. Best wishes to the lovely bride and groom – Cheers!

Testimonial from Katelin:
Kara did a fantastic job!!! She listened to all my concerns and spent all the time making sure I loved the makeup and felt completely comfortable. Both Kara and Ashley did a fantastic job and I could not have walked out of that salon happier on my wedding day. I truly felt like a beautiful bride. Thank you so much! All my bridesmaids loved their hair and makeup as well! I would be happy to send some of the photos once I get them in and will definitely provide the photographers info as well. I can’t wait to see them because I think they are going to be pretty great!
Thanks again for everything! Katelin
