Meeting with Cary was literally a God-send for me and for my business. I was truly struggling with the direction in which I would be moving our business for the future. Cary was able to understand those difficulties and ask the right questions to help me recognize the importance of knowing what I was really passionate about and how I could use that passion to grow the business. She took the time to look through my website and social media pages and offered great suggestions on how I could improve the look and feel of each one. I have already implemented many of her ideas and I am looking forward to implementing more on our newly updated website. Having started several businesses and Vend Raleigh, Cary has personal knowledge of how to connect to customers, subscribers and others in a truly relational way. If you are looking for someone to get a “fresh set of eyes” on your business, I would highly recommend Cary. Her perspective and advice have been invaluable to me. I am certain that she will bring that same enthusiasm to all her clients.

Hello and WELCOME to Altered Aesthetics!
My name is Jen Santoro and I am the owner and senior artist at Altered Aesthetics. Growing up in Southern California I always had a passion for all things makeup and beauty. After getting my first tattoo, I found another passion, getting more tattoos! In 2013, when I moved to Raleigh I decided to take a different path in my career and found permanent makeup and microblading, which brought together my passion for makeup and tattoos.
I am huge advocate of continual education in this industry, and am continually refining and perfecting my skills through additional cosmetic tattoo and microblading courses. By learning new techniques I am able to bring new and exciting services to Altered Aesthetics.
Altered Aesthetics has been a woman owned Raleigh business for a year now! Big things are coming and we have added another artist Kelly Denhalter, who shares our passion with brows. The goal of the team at Altered Aesthetics is to provide clients with an amazing set of brows that they will love and be proud of.
