Rose Perez Prieto CPCP, LE, CCE - USA

Author: How Fitzpatrick & Melanin Influence the Cosmetic Tattoo

🙂 Rose Prieto began her career as an eyebrow and makeup artist, nearly 30 years ago during her years as a Theatre Arts major in college. It was her fondness for character development that inspired her interest in stage make-up, which led to her passion for manipulating the contours of the face, using shadow and light. Rose is a licensed cosmetic tattooist, esthetician and electrologist living in Miami, Florida where she owns and operates a private aesthetic practice, “Beauty and Brow Lounge”. Her passion within the PMU arena ignited when she began mentoring young artists. It was her love of educating and empowering others that propelled her to write her first PMU educational guide, “How Fitzpatrick and Melanin Influence the Cosmetic Tattoo”, which she has turned into an online course of the same name. As a published beauty writer and content creator (since 2013), Rose has dedicated her career to educating others through her knowledge of skin care and beauty. She is currently developing the second book in her PMU Useful Guide Series, “In the Skin”, and continues to host her own weekly podcast, “The Beauty Lounge”, where she empowers listeners to become the best aesthetic version of themselves (tune-in wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts!). To keep the conversation going, please follow Rose on social media @Beauty and Brow Lounge and @The Beauty Lounge Podcast or visit her website at BeautyandBrowLounge.com.

Hey! I'm Jessie Dillon: Business Owner, Educator, Wife, Mother, Friend, and Athlete… And somehow, I have real days off thrown in there, too! It might seem impossible, but I firmly believe that a lucrative, fulfilling, and balanced PMU career is ALWAYS within reach, and much closer than you think.

It ain't always pretty, but it IS always worth it. There will be roadblocks, risks, tears, and sacrifice… As well as opportunity, wins, excitement, and freedom. My mission within our community is to help fellow artists take full control of their businesses; To help them build a strong foundation, or shed new, transformative light on the basics.
