As one of Kansas City’s leading permanent eyeliner artists, Tina can help you achieve your perfect look. Firstly we will help you decide on your ideal shade. From the bold look of intense black to subtle shades of grey and olive, your choice will be tailored to compliment your skin tone and eye-colour perfectly. I'll then apply the shade between each eyelash, building your permanent eyeliner corner to tear duct before tapering the ends for a delicate yet elegant finish.
If you find using eyeliner difficult due to lack of practice, impaired vision or a medical condition, permanent eyeliner offers a lasting solution. Wrinkled or loose eyelids? Your permanent eyeliner will be applied smoothly and flawlessly in one single line. For those who have allergies or very sensitive skin, permanent eyeliner can stop irritation dead in its tracks.
PERMANENT EYELINER FAQS
HOW IS THE EYELINER DONE?
Your artist will use a disposable pen to implant pigment into the eyelid skin after numbing thoroughly. The colour will be tattooed into the lash line for a result that brings your eyes forward and makes them stand out.
DOES IT HURT?
A topical anesthetic is applied for 20 minutes prior to the treatment to reduce discomfort and promote relaxation. Most people report a "scratching" sensation that is tolerable. People with sensitive skin may experience more sensation, but again, the sensation is tolerable.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
It takes approximately 20 minutes per eye.
WHAT COLOURS ARE USED?
We recommend dark colours such as black or charcoal for maximum impact and definition. Light colours are not recommended as they tend to look “faded”.
MY EYELID SKIN IS WRINKLED. AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?
As long as your skin is healthy and in good condition without any eye irritations, you can qualify for the eyeliner procedure. However, if your skin is extremely loose, you will not be a good candidate.
I AM WEARING EYELASH EXTENSIONS. CAN I STILL GET THE EYELINER PROCEDURE DONE?
Eyelash extensions must be removed prior to eyeliner treatment. They can be reapplied after two weeks.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME AND WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER THE TREATMENT?
The eyes will will be puffy for approximately 3 days post procedure, similar to the appearance of eyes after a good cry. Cold compresses are recommend immediately after the procedure to greatly reduce swelling. Most swelling will go away by day 4.
I AM USING AN EYELASH GROWTH SERUM. CAN I STILL GET THE EYELINER PROCEDURE DONE?
No. Eyelash growth serums such as Latisse or other OTC brands must be discontinued for 8 months prior to the eyeliner procedure to reduce the risk of bruising/migration.
CAN I WORKOUT AND WEAR EYE MAKEUP AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
No. Working out can cause swelling and is not allowed for 1 week post procedure to ensure beautifully healed results. Makeup application must be avoided for one week to avoid any bacterial buildup in the area.
WHAT ARE THE AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS?
For one week post treatment, it is important to clean the area daily and apply the provided aftercare gel to promote healing. Cold compress should be applied for a minimum of 1 hour to reduce swelling immediately after the procedure.
