Eyeliner

*BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

Tired of recreating your eyeliner and everyday?

We offer permanent eyeliner that will make you throw away your pencils for good.

At Art of Lash, we appreciate art and trend, however, when choosing permanent makeup it's important to keep in mind that trends fade. Therefore we specialize in natural eyeliner styles that will not only never go out of style, but give you the flawless appearance you deserve. 

All shapes and colors are customized to suit each individual.

EYELASH ENHANCEMENT EYELINER

 

This technique helps create a soft illusion of thicker eyelashes while defining the eye. 

Eyelash enhancement eyeliner, gives you a very subtle and natural look. This eyeliner will never go out of style since it will just make your eyelash line appear denser. 

 

CLASSIC EYELINER

This service is just what it sounds like. It's a classic permanent liner, perfect to add more definition while creating more depth. Perfect for anyone who wears eyeliner daily. This technique can be combined with the eyelash enhancement to create a more sultry effect.

**Please understand that we do not create any extreme winged eyeliners. These two styles can be combined at the appointment, should your artist deem it to be suitable.

Failure to do so may result in your appointment being cancelled or your results not lasting as long and/or changing. Please understand that an eyeliner tattoo is a multi-step process and no results can be promised as everyones skin responds to implantation of pigment differently.

Right after your appointment your eyes and eyelash-line may be slightly swollen and red. This is all normal, fair clients may have more red/pinkish looking skin than others. Your eyeliner may appear darker in color around day 3, and some clients may experience scabbing/flaking. Please let your eyeliner go through the natural healing stages for your cosmetic tattoo and do not RUB, PICK, SCRATCH or PEEL your tattoo. This may result in scarring, hyperpigmentation and pigment loss of your cosmetic tattoo. 

It's common for the pigment to fade 30% after your initial session, the eyeliner may also shrink or slightly alter its shape during the healing stages. This is normal and can be adjusted during your follow up enhancement session.
