Did you know that you can have a permanent eyeliner tattoo?

If you are one who loves to beat your face but you’re tired of applying eye liner daily, you could opt for a more permanent option – a tattooed eyeliner, and it can help define your eyes.

The permanent makeup usually lasts between three and five years, after which a touch up will be required. While similar to regular tattoos, a slightly different ink is used – making it less permanent. However, a needle is still used to ‘deposit’ the ink into the skin around your eye.

How is the permanent makeup applied?

To create a natural shape, professionals start off by drawing an outline for the eyeliner with their makeup pencil. A topical numbing cream is applied and left for 15 minutes before a professional makeup artist uses a permanent-makeup machine to draw the narrow lines on the eyelids.

Does it hurt?

People have different pain thresholds, but most describe it as ‘uncomfortable’ but not unbearable. There may be some slight scabbing as the skin heals over the next few days. However, you will be left with a lovely defined eye, and a liner that doesn’t ‘run’ while you’re at the gym or the beach.
