True Beauty Brooklyn

True Beauty Brooklyn is a private beauty studio specializing in holistic + advanced facials, lash extensions, brow shaping + tinting, microblading, and full body waxing. Come in for a personalized, one on one, cozy experience. Please note that there is a minimum service cost of $45 per appointment. Services under $45 must be "bundled" so that the total cost per appointment is equal to, or greater than $45.

I am open by appointment only, and please note that as of right now, waxing is only available on Thursdays beginning October 7, with Alix Shapiro. For this reason, body waxing can not be bundled with any other services (trust me, Alix is the best intimate waxer this side of the east river!)

For microblading and potential microblading clients, please email me directly at elizabeth@truebeautybrooklyn.com to discuss your brow goals, and make an appointment. I know you must have a ton of questions, and concerns, and I want to get to know the girl who is trusting me with her face!

Our Services

60 Minute Holistic Basic Facial
This facial is customized to each individual client's needs using in house made products including herbal and essential oil infusions, house made organic creams, various honeys and clays, fruit enzymes and biochemical actives, sourced from some of the top biochemists in the world. Skin Analysis, Pre-Cleanse, Deep-Cleanse, Exfoliation, Extractions(if necessary), decollete, neck and shoulder massage, Mask
Light Volume Lash Set (everyday volume)
{1:1, 2:1, 3:1} A blend of classic and volume lashes OR volume up to triples for a fuller look. This lash set is for someone who would like a little more "oomf" than a classic lash set. Because we are using multiple, super light lashes to create individual fans per each of your natural lashes, it is possible to achieve a full lash look, while not necessarily lashing each one of your natural lashes, and still keep a beautiful, natural-looking lash set. This is a more everyday, and affordable option to a full volume lash set.
Mega Full Volume Lash Set (weddings, events, photoshoots, film/TV, and editorial lashes)
This is my most in-depth, one-on-one lash service for the most particular, detail-oriented client. My mega full volume is the fullest, most dramatic, and complex lash set that I create. Using 4-6D super lightweight, handmade lash fans, I work one-on-one with my client weeks ahead of the event to together (and with your team, should you have a glam squad) develop the lash look of your dreams. Using photos of yourself (which we will take during your lash consultation), your inspiration photos, my portfolio of work, and my specialized face mapping technique, we collaborate and discuss the best lash shape, style, density, and curl to compliment your look, lifestyle, or event. The result is a super fluffy, dense, dramatic lash perfect for special events, photoshoots, film and TV, and weddings. This technique gives the most voluminous, dramatic, full look. An advantage to volume lashes is that your lashes look fuller, longer than a classic lash set. Clients can go up to 4 weeks in between fills, and still look lovely, versus every 2/3 weeks needed for a classic lash set.
90 Minute Holistic Basic Facial
This 90 minute facial is customized to each individual client's needs. The 90 minute facial is recommended for those who require a lot of extractions, or those who want an extra long, blissfull and relaxing experience. Skin Analysis, Pre-Cleanse, Deep-Cleanse, Exfoliation, Extractions(if neccessary), Decollete, shoulder and neck Massage, Mask
Chemical Peel Rejuvenating Facial (60 mins. Advanced Facial)
Extra deep exfoliating advanced facial incorporating blends of retinoids, AHAs, BHAs, peptides, and antioxidants. This chemical peel/facial hybrid nourishes your skin, while lifting away dullness by encouraging rapid cellular rejuvenation over several days. This facial is custom tailored to fit your skin type, and is suitable for normal to resilient skin. I incorporate either a 4% Pure Retinol, TCA, or Jessners chemical peel within this facial, depending on the client's needs. It can be customized to treat melasma, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, breakout prone skin, sun damaged skin, dry and dehydrated skin, fine lines, or if you want to get your skin looking its best for a special event. It is recommended to get this treatment approximately 3 weeks prior to any special event. Please note that this facial includes 3-4 days of peeling skin. This facial is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Advanced Customized Facial (60 mins)
A 60 minute facial using PCA skincare products to create a completely customized facial with a variety of super advanced treatments and correctives.

Though not an "all natural brand", PCA Skin uses the cleanest ingredients that are found naturally in the skin and body. They use research and science to develop safe, highly effective products that deliver healthy, beautiful skin. This facial includes: cleanse / deep cleanse / exfoliation / extractions / therapeutic mask targeting specific skincare concerns/ advanced correctives targeting specific skincare concerns / facial massage

Classic Full Lash Set
A full set of individual eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural eyelashes. They are applied one by one to each of your individual eyelashes for a beautiful, natural, and effortless look, eliminating the need to wear mascara.
Full Volume Lash Set (a more dramatic lash for, weddings, events, or an everyday look for HBICs)
A Full Volume Lash set, in which we create a dramatic lash effect using multiple, super light lashes to create an individual handmade fan for each of your natural lashes. The result is a super fluffy, dense, dramatic lash perfect for special events, photoshoots, and weddings. This technique gives the most voluminous, dramatic, full look. An advantage to volume lashes is that your lashes look fuller, longer than a classic lash set. Clients can go up to 4 weeks in between fills, and still look lovely, versus every 2/3 weeks needed for a classic lash set.
