Permanent eyeliner is a cosmetic procedure that involves tattooing the upper and/or lower eyelids with a pigment. The pigment is typically applied with a needle, which leaves behind a thin line of color that is used to define and enhance the natural beauty of your eyes.
The process itself is relatively simple! An artist will apply ink to your skin and then use needles to puncture the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin), creating tiny holes through which ink can enter into deeper layers of your dermis (the second layer). As these wounds heal, they become permanent scars called “microscars.” These microscars are where permanent makeup pigments take root and become visible on your face as lines of color.
The science behind it is impeccable! But overall, that’s a fancy way of saying the treatment will last quite a while and give you the ability to wake up with the perfect eye look!
Types of Permanent Eyeliner Styles
There are several different styles that you can choose from. The most popular eyeliner styles include:
- Classic- This is the most basic and traditional style, where you draw a thin line along your upper lash line.
- Winged – This look involves drawing a winged shape at the outer corner of each eye, starting from the inner corner, and moving outward toward your temple.
- Cat Eye- This style is a happy medium between the Classic and Winged styles as it follows the thin line along your upper lash line, extending out and up.
If something else would work better for you, there are even more options! The best part about the experience is you can choose the personalized style that best fits you! You can choose anywhere from a soft and subtle line to a bold cat eye with flare.
Benefits of Permanent Eyeliner
–Timesaving. Permanent eyeliner can save you hours accumulated in the makeup chair. Plus, no smudging! You can simply wake up with your desired look instead of fighting an unsteady hand and multiple makeup remover wipes to draw on a look.
–Money saving. Permanent eyeliner also saves money because it lasts significantly longer than other products, so you don’t have to replace it as often. This means that over time, you will save money on makeup purchases on expensive eyeliners and tools that add up quickly!
–Confidence. Stepping into your day knowing you already have one of your most valuable features accented perfectly is a confidence boost you didn’t even know you needed until now! The eyes are one of the first features people notice about you. Give them something to get lost in!
How to Choose the Right Permanent Eyeliner Style
When choosing the right permanent eyeliner style, there are a few factors to consider. First and foremost, you should take into account your eye shape. If you have deep-set eyes or hooded lids, then lining just above the lash line will make them appear more open and alert.
Secondly, think about how much time and effort you want to put into applying makeup in the morning versus what kind of lifestyle you lead – Fashion influencer? Busy mom? Workaholic lawyer? Find what best suits your everyday life.
Finally, consult with your specialist. Trust me, technicians have an eye for this kind of thing! After years of education and experience, they can help you find the look that will fit you perfectly.
