Genevieve Barlas, CPCP
With three decades of experience as an esthetician and makeup artist, in 2012 Genevieve embarked on a rigorous course of research and training in cosmetic tattooing and earned her credentials for comprehensive cosmetic tattooing, areola tattooing, advanced techniques and pigment removal procedures.
In 2015 she became one of Canada's few with the internationally recognized CPCP (Certified Permanent Cosmetic Practitioner) with international certification.
Genevieve earned the award for achieving the highest mark on her CPCP exam out of three international sittings. (East Coast USA, West Coast USA and London, UK)
With a focus and commitment to do exceptional work, Genevieve remains on the leading edge of techniques and technologies by attending international seminars several times a year, and consistently upgrading her skills, equipment and products.
A major highlight in her career and advancing skill as an artist came with the most intensive and advanced training. 400 hours distance learning and 120 hours in person in Russia with arguably the worlds most talented artist.
Genevieve is passionate about using her skills and her client-centred approach to help breast cancer survivors on their journey of reconstruction, burn survivors, alopecia patients, and others who will benefit from cosmetic tattooing.
The permanent cosmetic discipline is a natural progression for Genevieve. With her eye for symmetry and her colour knowledge, eyebrows became her specialty early in her career. Over the past three decades, Genevieve dramatically improved the appearance and self-esteem of thousands of her clients.
Genevieve has been a long-time champion of education and ongoing professional development. In 2010, after the Government of Saskatchewan began recognizing and implementing industry standards, Genevieve received one of the first Journeyman Esthetics certifications in the province. She went on to assist a premier education facility with re-working their curriculum to become an accredited vocational school. She has brought credibility to the esthetics industry and earned a reputation as a professional educator.
Even as a young teenager, Genevieve knew that becoming an esthetician was her calling. Her career in the beauty industry began in 1987 with an Esthetics Diploma from St. Tropezz School of Esthetics Artistry. Not long after graduating, Genevieve began earning numerous professional awards for her work as an esthetics artist.
