For the top and bottom eyeliner, we can create a fine line or a more tapered effect to give shape and definition to the eye. We can apply small dots between the lashes to create a denser look to the eyelashes themselves making them appear thicker.
We all lead hectic lives but want to look and feel our best for some people the time to apply makeup is a luxury. Applying makeup can also be challenge. Traditional makeup is not always as efficient and long wearing.
For those that perhaps work in industries such as sporting environments where perspiration and perhaps swimming is part of the role or in some industries which require you to be wearing makeup throughout your working pattern such as Flight Attendants.
Clients with oily skin causing makeup to smear, or clients with poor eyesight, clients requiring definition and shape. Permanent make up can be just a fashion statement or a confidence boost or a necessity for some to mask the effects of hair loss through illness and because of alopecia.
Micropigmentation for Permanent Eye Liner and Eye Make-Up
For many of us, make-up is an important aspect of day-today life. If eyeliner and eye make-up in general is an important part of your appearance and provides you with a feeling of self-confidence, it may be time to consider micropigmentation for permanent eye make-up. Maybe your eyeliner often smudges or wears off during the day. Or perhaps you have trouble getting it straight or are allergic to cosmetic products. It doesn’t matter why. What matters is that there is a permanent option that means you don’t need to worry about the application of eyeliner on a daily basis.
What is Micropigmentation?
The specialist techniques used to create semi-permanent make-up are often referred to as micropigmentation. This procedure can simply be described as minute particles of coloured pigment being placed mechanically below the surface of the skin – essentially like a tattoo but with slightly different tools being used. When it comes to permanent make-up, the most frequently requested procedures are permanent colour to the eyebrows, top and bottom eyeliner shading, lip liner and full lips or lip blend, beauty spot and freckle treatments. Although the treatment fades after approximately 2 – 4 years, some colour will remain to a greater or lesser degree. Micropigmentation can be compared to having a tattoo as the new pigment or colour is deposited in the dermal layer of the skin, just below the surface so that it’s visible. It’s important to note that you can return to work and carry out normal day-to-day activities immediately afterwards.
Permanent eyeliner procedures – also known as permanent cosmetics, permanent makeup, cosmetic tattooing, and micropigmentation – are perfect for you if you want the make-up look without the hassle. Imagine waking up looking like yourself without having to worry about taking time to apply your eyeliner perfectly.
Why Should You Consider Permanent Eye Make-Up?
If you’re reading this, you’ll already know that eyeliner can be applied in many styles and colours. This ranges from soft, natural-looking lash enhancement to a defined line. Some individuals prefer both upper and lower eyeliner as they believe that it suits their style the best, while others feel only upper or lower eyeliner is appropriate for them. Whatever look you choose for the long term, you can go about your daily activities and then go to bed always looking your best.
With any type of tattoo or micropigmentation procedure, techniques will vary from technician to technician. When you first go for your consultation, your permanent cosmetic consultant may ask you to wear your eyeliner the way you like it in order to establish how they will do it. Alternatively, you may be asked to bring a picture as a representation of your preferred eyeliner design. However, it is more appropriate to let your technician see your desired look on your face so that they can get it right. It’s important to keep in mind that it is their professional duty to advise of an appropriate style and design dependant on your look and age.
How Does the Application of Permanent Make-Up Work?
The result you can expect is directly linked to the skill of your individual practitioner in addition to the quality of the permanent tattoo pigments that are applied. Therefore, it’s important to talk openly and honestly with your practitioner about your specific eye make-up requirements in order to gain a realistic understanding of what to expect. It’s also important to establish that the products and tools used are certified, clean, and to a high standard. The cosmetic eyeliner application process varies as there are numerous devices that can be used for a permanent make-up look. These include the coil machine, the linear device (also known asthe Neo Tat), digital rotaries, the permanent cosmetic pen rotaries, and the manual device – which is the most common. All, when used in accordance with the proper guidelines, are controlled and safe. You may ask to see the attendance certificate indicating your technician is qualified with the correct training.
In terms of the process, some technicians will use a pre-procedure anaesthetic, while others don’t. If a pre-procedure anaesthetic is used and the technician is not a physician or working under the direction of a physician, it will be an over-the-counter level anaesthetic which has proved to be quite effective. However, it’s important to keep in mind that all of this will be discussed in your consultation beforehand and you’ll know what to expect upon arrival when it comes to permanent micropigmentation make-up.
What to Expect During Micropigmentation
When you arrive to have your permanent make-up applied, you can be safe in the knowledge that the practitioner will practice with only one-time-use accessories. If a pre-procedure anaesthetic is required, the practitioner will use a sterilized needle will be assembled into the device before the procedure begins. Typically, eye products such as eyewash and eye drops are used throughout the permanent eyeliner procedure. Additionally, aftercare instructions are normally provided and some technicians provide products depending on what procedure you choose. Once the application of permanent make-up has been successfully completed, a follow up appointment will usually be scheduled for about four to eight weeks’ time. This is dependent on the age of the client in order to establish how the eyeliner procedure healed and if any further work is required.
Permanent micropigmentation really is something that you should consider if you want to remove the hassle of daily eyeliner application. It’s easy, quick, and permanent!
