The shape and size of the eyes can be improved by optical illusion with line or with colour change. Enhancing features of the eyes or illusions have been practiced by makeup artists for years. The extreme precision of small needles in micropigmentation allow a definition that is not possible with the pencil or eyeliner … and the line remains in place!
Wherever you put darkness is where your eye is drawn to, which means eyeliner allows you to change the shape of your eyes. You don’t have to go under the knife for bigger-looking eyes.
Getting permanent eyeliner involves the use of highly specialized technique and machines that allow the pigment to be injected into the eyelid and in the lash line. This is how a look of a fuller lash line or eyeliner is created.
This is a technique which applies the eyeliner throughout and above the eyelashes of your top lid. The difference between this technique and the eyelash enhancement, is that the eyeliner in this treatment is positioned both above and beyond the eyelash, creating a visible line on the upper lid, similar in effect to what you would create yourself if using a kohl based eye pencil. Depending on your specific request, a thinner or thicker line can be drawn. The effects vary from subtle and natural to a more dramatic and intense look. The same technique can be used for both top and bottom lashes.
This is perfect for those who wants to create more angles and add a hint of sexiness. A small extent, “wing,” contributes to lengthen the width of your eyes and elevating your look. If you have downturned eyes you were meant to rock a “cat eye”. However, in cases of hooded eyes, big size winged tip can have a reverse effect. To achieve the right winged tip you must to consider the shape of the eyes. The length of the wing depends largely on the space that appears in the tarsal plate when looking from the front.
It is a specialised advanced technique used to enhance eyeliners or create a softer result, rather than the crisp structured lines of a classic and advanced eyeliner.
It creates a unique result, with different variations of technique and colour to really make the eyes have that little extra sparkle. Shaded eyeliners can be performed using classic black or you can shade with a second colour to add a hint of a pearlescent effect for a softer healed result. This shading technique is ideal for a natural eye accent. And you can choose the length, width and the intensity of the eyeshadow yourself.
Shaded eyeliner is the look you have when you apply pencil and then follow with a small smudging brush to smoke it out.
The upper inner rim doesn’t always get as much attention as its lower counterpart, but in some cases it’s an equally important area to define. Applying black eyeliner to your upper rim will intensify your lashline, giving you natural looking definition without the hard edge of a liner. It will appear as if you have thicker and darker lashes. A dark line in the upper rim makes a world of difference for those who have a few and light coloured lashes.
The bottom line can be applied in different lengths, 1/3, 1/2, 3/4 or full eyeliner, according to client preference, shape and size of the eyes. It is better not do very thick eyeliner on the bottom. It can be compact, soft or smoky. There is also the option to make the waterline eyeliner.
Normal eyeliner - medium or thick, similar to the effect of pencil eyeliner. Suitable for people who do not leave home without putting on eyeliner
Soft eyeliner - thin line. Accentuates the eyes discreetly in a very natural way.
Waterline eyeliner - medium to thick line applied on the wet part of the eyes.
Immediately after the procedure, the eyelids will be slightly swollen. Because of the swelling, the eyeliner will appear to be much thicker and can be distorted. Also, the color will appear to be extremely dark, even when soft colors are used. In 2-3 days, the liner will be reduced to the desired thickness and will be more even as the swelling goes down. The color will lighten as the healing process progresses. Full healing is complete within 4-6 weeks. After that, your final color and shape can be assessed and touched up if necessary.
The first procedure takes approximately approximately 2,5 hours, even though it might take longer if you choose a more complex style, and after 6 weeks the touch up takes about 1,5 hour.
Permanent makeup, including tattooed eyeliner, looks best for about one year. Depending on how well your eye holds the color, it can last for up to 2 or 3 years before you have to start worrying about touch-ups.
The eyeliner or lash line procedure is more psychologically scary to most clients than anything else. Surprisingly though, tattooed eyeliner doesn’t cause pain as you might expect, especially if you’ve chosen a solid artist. A topical lidocaine is applied to the eyelids for numbing prior, once I start the tattoo process the client feel a vibration. There is no bleeding. Also, more numbing agent is added throughout the procedure to keep the entire process comfortable.
The thickness, length and colour are the preference of the client. Black or brown tones are the most popular colours for the eyeliners, but you can choose blue or green tones as well. Upper liner is usually thicker in the outer part and decreases towards the interior of the eye. The shape of the liner depends on the size and shape of the eye and eyelid.
The upper and lower liners are not bonded, they are separate lines. There are some good reasons for not connecting the upper to the lower eyeliner. First, connecting you close your eyes and they look smaller. And secondly, the tissue in the inner and outer corners of the eyes are the thinnest skin on the body and the risk of pigment migration – blurred pigmentation on the inside, is quite high. The risk increases with age.
