Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eyelining and other permanent enhancing colors to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids.
Cosmetic makeup is advantageous not only for those who wish to save time applying it, but also for those with allergies or sensitive skin who may not otherwise be able to wear eyeliner. It may also help those women who have visual impairment who may not able to apply make up daily.
Immediate side effects following permanent eyeliner application include swelling that lasts anywhere from two to 72 hours after application. Also, the eyeliner color typically appears much darker for up to as many as 10 days after the procedure. Upper Eyeliner procedure takes 1 hour and for the regular upper and lower eyeliner procedure will take 1 hour and 30 minutes to complete.

- No contact lenses on the day of your procedure
- Sauna or Jacuzzi for at least 3 days

Can I do the eyeliner service if I have lash extensions?
Eyelash extension should be remove as it interfere with the service so you will need to get it removed before the procedure. After your procedure, we recommend refraining from applying make up for three days (72 hours). Avoid using an eyelash curler for two weeks. Do not expose your healing skin to direct shower spray, skin creams, ointments, or lotions other than what you have been instructed to use for at least 3 days following your procedure.
Can I do two services in one day?
Yes, a combination of all of our services can be done in the same day.
Permanent makeup can last up to 1 year before needing to be retouched. It all depends on your skin type, how often your skin gets exposed to the sun and how your body reacts to the ink. Typically it goes like this. You get the procedure done and four to six weeks later you come back in for a touch-up. Every six month from that point you would come back for touch-ups to keep the shape and the strokes fresh. Many people do retain the pigment very well and are able to keep the permanent makeup looking good for over a year.
All our artist are well-trained and certified to do the procedure as they are determined to give happiness through permanent makeup.
