Permanent Eyeliner

Many people will say, when they notice someone for the first time, they see the eyes. The eyes are often an area that ages first and can age quickly, giving way to the appearance of sadness, droopiness, puffiness, or hollowness. Although permanent eyeliner makeup cannot repair aging eyes by taking away excess skin or wrinkles, it can improve the appearance of the eye. Permanent eyeliner placed near your lash line and around your lashes can make your eyes look brighter, younger, and more expressive.



Several different types of approaches can be used for lining the eye: a straight and solid line on the upper and/or lower lid as well as lash line enhancement. The thicker the color, the more it looks like applied eyeliner.  Lash enhancement and permanent eyeliner are different degrees of the same process.

Results will last for 18-36 months.


  1. After you arrive and fill out paperwork, a topical numbing cream is applied to your eyes for 20-30 minutes.  While you are numbing, your artist will consult with you on the appropriate liner color, taking into account your skin tone, skin type, and undertones.  The artist will track the final colors used in your records. 

  2. Your artist will then pencil draw your eyeliner by hand to get the shape, and thickness to your liking.  The artist will take into account your eye shape, facial features, and your preference. 

  3. The artist will then begin using a rotary or digital machine to delicately place the pigment into the skin. The entire treatment time is approximately 2 to 2.5 hours. 

Please revew the Pre-Procedure and After Care Instructions for more information on how to properly care for your permanent eyeliner before and after the treatment. 

It is highly recommended you book your touchup 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment to perfect your eyeliner.


  • Please come to your appointment without any makeup on.

  • Do not work out 24 hours before the procedure.

  • Do not wear contact lenses and it is recommended you have someone drive you or someone “on-call” to drive you.

Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.



  • Eyeliner will appear darker and bolder due to natural scabbing and healing for the first two weeks. This is very common for all permanent cosmetic procedures.  They will lighten up to 40%.

  • Eyes will be sensitive and tender for about a week.

  • You will need to apply an aftercare ointment to your eyeliner approximately 2-3 times a day for 7 days. Use a fresh Q-tip with each application.

  • NO makeup or skincare products on the treated area for two weeks.

  • Keep your area clean by using a gentle fragrance-free gel cleanser.
