How many times have you woken up in the morning and wished your AM to-do list was way shorter? “Low maintenance” beauty trends – like permanent tattoo eyeliner, lash extensions, and microblading – are becoming way more accessible. As a result, more people than ever are waking up looking hella fresh without having to put in nearly as much work.
What is Permanent Eyeliner? Is it Really Permanent?
All forms of permanent makeup are technically classified as a tattoo. In other words, they involve implanting color into your skin with a tiny needle. As for whether it’s really permanent, the short answer is no. Permanent eyeliner isn’t going to wash off with the rest of your makeup at night, but it will gradually fade away within a year or two. If we’re getting nit-picky, we’d say that semi-permanent is probably a better description.
If you’re wondering why permanent eyeliner eventually fades out but regularly tattoos last for years, the reason is that the color embedding doesn’t go nearly as deep into your skin. Only the top surface layers are colored. This is the same process you see with microbladed brows, as well, which also fade.
As for the actual process of applying tattooed eyeliner, your artist will clean the area with an eye-approved antibacterial and then apply a numbing cream to help reduce discomfort. Then micro-droplets of colored pigments are inserted between your lashes and under the skin with a special tool. Sometimes this process is done over several passes, or it can be done over several appointments to monitor the color absorption.
Does All Permanent Eyeliner Look the Same?
Definitely not. This is a completely customized process. There are many different techniques, tools, and digital tips depending on the desired look or the expert technician. You can go for ‘high definition,’ a powdery or shadow-like finish, a thicker liner, or a tight line.
