Tired of applying eyeliner every day? So many women (and men) are in the same position. This is why permanent eyeliner is an increasingly popular option, and something the best beauticians have down to a fine art. Because it is a fine art.
Let’s learn all about it.
Why Choose Permanent Eyeliner?
Major benefits include:
- Saving you time every morning
- Getting the same, perfect look every day
- It’s affordable given how long it lasts! Good-quality makeup is expensive
- Never risk getting potentially harmful makeup in your eye again
For most people, the time-saving component is the biggest advantage. Having that bespoke salon look every day is also an incredible benefit.
How is Permanent Eyeliner Done?
First, the area around the eye is cleaned and treated with a numbing agent to reduce discomfort. After this, a specialist machine is used to put micropigmentation in the skin around the eyes.
This can either be done to achieve a “filling out” effect, where the eyelashes look fuller and darker, or to create a full eyeliner look. The latter is a popular treatment as it can create a perfect, designer aesthetic that can last for several years if performed and maintained properly.
Does Getting Permanent Eyeliner Hurt?
For most people, the numbing agent reduces any pain to a negligible level. However, any process around the eyes will cause some discomfort, and the vibrations of the machine used to apply micropigmentation can feel quite strange.
For people who are very sensitive to pain, the process might be uncomfortable. You can speak with your beautician and even your doctor if you’re worried about pain.
How Long Does Permanent Eyeliner Take to Heal?
After the treatment, there will be a few days when you might experience swelling around the eyes. You might also experience minor, itchy scabbing – don’t worry, this is normal. It will usually clear up in a week, or 2 at the most. You’ll be fine to go about your day as usual.
Avoid wearing mascara or any other type of make-up around your eyes for the week after the process. Wait for your perfect eyeliner to develop and heal before adding to your look!
How Long Does Permanent Eyeliner Last?
It can last for several years if it’s done by a professional using the best techniques and tools. This also depends on how often it’s washed and your skin type. Often it’ll need “touching up” after a couple of years.
Should I Get Permanent Eyeliner?
