i have to say that athena has done wonderful work on my face - eyes, lips, brows - the works! i am getting compliments from friends and family, although few know what i actually had done. it did take a while - 5 visits in total. athena is very careful, and impressively expert at what she does. she's artistic with a wonderful sense of beauty and style. i did not know what i wanted, but she walked me thru the possible lip shapes, eye lining, etc. it has all turned out beautifully but you cannot expect it to happen on one or two visits. particularly difficult were the lips, the color has a hard time sticking so it has to be done repeatedly. but now, after 5 visits, i am delighted at the results. athena is is masterful, for sure. it isn't cheap, but i do think she's the best there is.
