Maria De Santis created A Face Forever LLC to offer clients a one-on-one experience in a warm atmosphere that follows the proper laws to Micropigmentation a.k.a Permanent Cosmetic protocol.

A Face Forever LLC offers a solution to inconsistent makeup application that inconveniences women on a daily basis. Permanent cosmetics is a simple and safe technique that involves implanting micro pigments of iron oxide into the second, or dermal layer of the skin creating a soft, subtle shadow or color. Colors choices and shaping are determined in a consultation appointment before any procedure is done. Consider permanent cosmetics if you are a busy mother, someone who is always on the go, can't seem to purchase the right colors for your skin tone or any other personal reasons.


Maria routinely continues advance education courses to master her techniques. Her extensive training also certifies her in multiple methods that are incorporated when performing procedures to acheive the desired look for each individual's requests.

Maria's specialty in color correction (the most commonly requested service), lip reshaping and areola restoration after reconstructive breast surgery has earned her great recognition with local Plastic Surgeons in New Jersey. Alopecia and Chemo patients have also found a solution with Maria's creative techniques to simulate eyebrow and eyelash hairs.

All are invited to a personal consultation review where they can see what the prospective procedure will look like, ask questions and begin building a trusting relationship with Maria.
