Many women have a love-hate relationship with eyeliner. While it helps add emphasis to the eyes and gives the illusion of thicker lashes, it can be tricky to apply.
Liquid eyeliner runs and smudges easily, and the liner pencil tends to pull and tug at the eyes when applying it. Both can brush off by the end of the day, and if not waterproof, they’ll start to come off when in contact with water, sweat, or tears.
Suppose you love eyeliner but don’t want to deal with these issues. In that case, you should consider permanent eyeliner as a possible solution. You’ll get all the benefits without the inconveniences of traditional liner.
Why Choose Permanent Eyeliner?
Permanent eyeliner is applied by implanting pigment into the eyelid with a microneedle, which will allow the color to stay in place no matter what.
Once applied, you will be able to swim, exercise, and cry without worrying about it running down your face or smudging. Also, your morning routine will be that much easier because you won’t need to apply any eyeliner from now on.
Permanent eyeliner comes in two main styles. The first one is the tight line, which is when the pigment is added between the layers of eyelashes. The tight line is less dramatic and subtly gives the appearance of fuller lashes.
The second is the eyeliner style, which is above the lash line and gives a more noticeable, dramatic look (think a cat-eye or winged look).
When deciding on a style, a professional will consider your facial features to determine the size and shape of the eyeliner.
What Will The Procedure Be Like?
Once you have completed your consultation and know what style you will get, a professional makeup artist will clean your eyes with an antibacterial wipe to avoid any possible infections.
Then, the artist will apply a numbing cream to your eyes, which will help minimize any possible discomfort. It can take up to 30 minutes for the numbing cream to have full effect.
After the numbing process is complete, the artist inserts the pigment under the skin using a device. Once the desired look has been achieved, the artist applies thin coats of eye ointment to help with recovery.
You can leave right away after the procedure.
What To Expect During Recovery
Although you may experience minor swelling, the healing process should not hinder your daily life and activities. You may experience slight scabbing once the pigment begins to settle and your body heals.
Refrain from agitating the scabs because it could cause you to remove the pigment.
Also, avoid wearing any eye makeup to eliminate the possibility of an infection. Additionally, because your hands can carry bacteria and germs, you should not touch your eyes or the skin near that area.
Expect the healing process to take up to 10 days, depending on which style you choose.
Permanent eyeliner may be the right solution for your personal needs. With little to no pain, a speedy recovery time, and added convenience, you can’t lose. You’ll no longer have to fuss with traditional liner and, ultimately, be able to trash all of it for good.
