What Is Permanent Eyeliner

Whenever you are creating beauty around you, you are restoring your own soul.

(Alice Walker)


For many women, the daily ritual of applying makeup in the morning and removing it in the evening is time-consuming. Most would simply love to look their best without going through the hassle of drawing that perfect line day in and day out.

Let’s face it; we all focus on our strong points: lips, cheeks, neckline, eyebrows or eyes. Here we are focusing on eyes and the innovative way of making them stand out no matter the time of day or night.


Is That Even Possible?

Yes, there is a way to look naturally beautiful without having to waste precious time to apply and remove the eyeliner. You can look your best even after just waking up, after gym and fitness, swimming, jogging or running and look good 24/7. The solution is permanent makeup.


What Is Permanent Make Up And Permanent Eyeliner?

Permanent eyeliner is a technique in permanent makeup in which colour pigments are inserted into the eyelids. The procedure, similar to tattooing, is often is referred to as “cosmetic tattooing” and can last for many years depending on a variety of factors including skin type, amount of sun exposure, lifestyle or after care. No smudging, no fading, no troubles. Permanent makeup is widely used by millions of women as a modern solution to enhance or repair the natural shape of their eyebrows, lips and eyes.

Permanent eyeliner is a specific type of permanent makeup used to enhance the shape of your eyes. It is done by drawing a thin line (or thick one, depending on customer preference) on the upper and lower eyelid. This creates a natural, subtle look of having fuller eyelashes and beautifully defined eyes.


Types of Permanent Eyeliner

The eyelash enhancement just for top lid is a popular treatment with both male and female clients. The procedure brings light to the eyes when pigments are implanted in the lash line. This gives more lift to the eyes enhancing their beauty; you could say it fills in the gaps between the eyelashes creating a gentle look of fuller eyelashes and subtly defined eye lines.

The eyelash enhancement for top and bottom lids is similar to the procedure above, except it also treats the bottom lid. We may often find the bottom lid line to be thinner than the upper lid and to present variations in intensity and thickness, starting from the inner corner and continuing to the outer corner of the eye. The effect of the eyelash enhancement for both lids is of course more intense than if applied only to the upper lid. It is still very soft and subtle, creating a beautiful naturally defined eye.

The top lid eyeliner is a technique which applies the eyeliner throughout and above the eyelashes of your top lid. The difference from the eyelash enhancement is that the eyeliner goes both above and beyond the eyelashes line, creating a visible line on the upper lid. Depending on a client’s wish, a thinner or thicker line can be drawn. The effects vary from subtle and natural to more dramatic and intense look. The same technique can be used for both top and bottom eyelid.

Let’s not forget about the thick or thin lines. Remember that it is always important to consult with a highly qualified and experienced permanent makeup specialist who can advise you on the colour and thickness of your permanent eyeliner. Thicker lines are usually applied to the upper lid, while thinner ones to the lower; however, thick and thin differ from a client to client.

Many women are great fans of Latino looks with more intense and dramatic eyes. That’s why the Latino eyeliner is a favourite permanent makeup technique for many women worldwide using more intense pigments and creating thicker lines to the top and bottom eyelids.

The shaded eyeliner is an advanced permanent makeup technique in which the technician creates a smudged, smokey eye look with soft edges.


Permanent Eyeliner: How Safe Is It?

Permanent eyeliner has amazing effects on the shape and look of your eyes. Taking into account that it is performed in such a sensitive area using a technique similar to tattooing, many clients cannot help wondering whether this procedure is safe.

The answer is Yes. All permanent makeup procedures at our clinic are 100% safe. At Emma Hall Beauty we use non-toxic and hypo-allergenic mineral pigments combined with the latest techniques and state-of-the art equipment.

While the word “tattoo” implies a longer period of skin renewal, it does not apply to permanent makeup known as “cosmetic tattooing”. After a permanent eyeliner procedure you can go back to work or meet with friends without downtime.


Does Permanent Eyeliner Hurt?

On a scale of 1 to 10, most clients reported a “pain” of a mere level 2. How is this possible? Using a special anaesthetic before and during the procedure, the pain is kept to minimum.



The permanent eyeliner technique is a safe and almost painless procedure that makes your eyes look naturally defined, in a subtle or more dramatic way, depending on your preferences. You can opt for subtle eyelash enhancement or a dramatic look with the Latino eyeliner. The possibilities are endless and the effects may last for years, making you looking good 24/7 without time-consuming daily makeup routines.
