About Us

The Permanent Cosmetics Studio was established by Carmella Gibellino-Schultz in 1999 in West Chester, PA. Coming from the beauty industry with a large following, it was a natural progression for Carmella to shift her focus to this more specific niche.

Now, nearly 10 years later and performing procedures on over 1,800 happy clients, The The Permanent Cosmetic Studio is highly sought after both locally and nationally for permanent makeup solutions.

The Studio

Our modern, yet cozy studio is located in a professional office park just a turn off of Route 1, Baltimore Pike in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania—not far from the Brandywine River Museum. You will find a reception area and three state-of-the- art procedure rooms that resemble modern dental offices, but with a comfy spa environment. Implements used in all procedures are NEW AND STERILE. Extreme care is taken for your sanitation and safety, as well as your comfort and peace of mind. Click here for directions.

Carmella has been solely dedicated to the art of permanent cosmetics since 1999. A licensed cosmetologist since 1978, Carmella founded the Skin Care School and Center in 1996 and trained over 700 estheticians over the eight years she operated the school.

An expert in topical makeup application with a keen eye for detail, shape and color theory, Carmella has performed thousands of procedures and is “referred by everyone.”

Carmella’s natural skill, perfectionism, and precision are unsurpassed; she is a true artist. Her philosophy is one client at a time, they are her total focus.

“Carmella’s artist gifts, knowledge, and expertise in the field of
permanent cosmetics brings about a natural and finished look.”

Her specialty is hair and makeup, and she has worked for little princess’s birthday parties, proms, private bridal parties, and the everyday ladies and gents.
