 Become Certified in NM as a Permanent Cosmetic and Microblade Artist

I love what I do and I want to share this beauty industry gem with you!

I began as a permanent makeup artists while in my last semester in college back in 2004. I was going to school for mass communications and quickly realized the beauty industry was calling me. In 2005, Cindy Kocurek (my momma) and I purchased Lorenco's Salon and together have now taken Lorenco's and our excellent permanent makeup reputation into it's 40th year! In 2010 I turned my sites on further education in the eyelash extension industry as well. I served on the State Board of Barbers Cosmetologists and Body Artists for 2 years and learned the ins and outs of the industry in the great state of New Mexico. As much as I loved traditional permanent makeup my focus in the last few years has been turned to microblading. It is an art and as an artists I can't tell you how fulfilling it is to get to create that art everyday for my job. I love it! I would also love to share this amazing beauty industry gem with you! Being a permanent cosmetic and microblade artist has opened doors I never know could be opened. It has taken care of me, my family and offered me a career second to none.
