Haute Makeup™ is a permanent makeup alternative for a natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance for clients.

This is a semi-permanent makeup service, a less invasive treatment providing subtle-looking enhancement to eyebrows, eyeliner, and lips. Other services that we offer are beauty marks; lip highlights, and wrinkle softening pigmentation. Our medical camouflage treatments can help mask problem areas due to scars or other skin problems.

We are committed to safe, beautiful, and natural-looking semi-permanent makeup.

Haute Makeup Vision & Philosophy

Our company name defines how we view business and beauty. We are Haute Makeup™, as in haute couture, as in “high fashion” quality. Selecting only hypoallergenic materials and state of the art hygienic practices, our company’s promise is to use high-quality products for our colors, devices, and semi-permanent makeup products for the safety and beauty of our clients.

The key to our services and client happiness is naturalness in form and color – we have been successfully and innovatively striving toward this goal in our semi-permanent makeup method for over twenty years and have emerged into implementing our experience into action with Haute Makeup™.

Our method treats each client’s face with a personalized and intimate approach to style. We aim to create the most balanced and harmonious result to further our clients’ natural features.

What our clients say...

Client Spotlight - Ingez Rameau

For the longest time I had wanted to tattoo my eyebrows but whenever I saw someone who had had it done, I never liked the way it looked. 

One day, after an appointment, I spotted the salon and walked into their shop in Beverly Hills. I was greeted in the most friendly and professional manner by Michelle who explained their process to me. I was convinced that this was the methodology for me and made an appointment for the following day. I could not have been happier with the results. 

So much so that a few weeks later, I went back and had both my lips and eyeliner tattooed. I found Michelle to be meticulous, artistic, careful, caring and completely committed to service me, as their client. 

It has always been important for me not to fuss too much with my makeup. But looking good and presentable is just as important. This process has made all the difference in the world. I don’t have to worry about spending hours on my face. I’m good to go as soon as I wake up and I’m happy to say that it all looks extremely natural. 

I cannot recommend Michelle highly enough.
