Everything You Need To Know About Eyeliner Embroidery

Thinking of getting an eyeliner embroidery? You’re not alone. As most of us include a makeup routine to start our day and depending on the skill, it can vary between 5 minutes to 15 and not everyone can do that. You line the eye with a pencil eyeliner a bit thicker on one side instead of both that means a nightmare to redo all over again. So how about we take the specific routine out of our day and wake up with perfectly-lined eyes instead? Introducing, eyeliner embroidery. 

What Is Eyeliner Embroidery Treatment

Similar to microblading, this treatment focuses on the eye, specifically the lash line. Eyeliner embroidery is a cosmetic treatment that uses concentrated pigment infused into the lash line to define and ‘perk up the eyes. And it’s just like a regular pencil or liquid eyeliner that we use only that the result is semi-permanent. You read that right, the result is semi-permanent which means you’ll have perfectly-lined eyes that can last for quite a long time.

And just like using the regular pencil or liquid eyeliner, there are a number of looks that you can get with this treatment. Fo example, within the lash line and inner lash line, or even opt for a winged liner for a more dramatic look. As eyeliner embroidery is semi-permanent, you can always change the look if you want to without worry as the pigment starts to fade away.

And yes, that’s the difference between eyeliner embroidery vs regular tattoos. The inks used from traditional tattoo won’t fade but instead turn to green or blue within the skin. The pigments used for eyeliner embroidery are highly concentrated and stable so they won’t irritate the skin, stays put (instead of feathering out). Hence, it can last for some time before it starts to fade away.

And here are some of the benefits of eyeliner embroidery that makes:

The Benefits Of Having Eyeliner Embroidery

One of the main benefits of getting eyeliner embroidery is the treatment can save up a lot of your time significantly. Even if you need just 10 minutes to line the eyes, it can add up significantly that you can use it for other activities instead of waking up early to just slot in a makeup routine. 

Not only the time-saving factor fits perfectly for anyone that leads a hectic lifestyle; anyone could use the extra time saved to focus on other activities or pursuits. 

With eyeliner embroidery, your eyes will look more defined and polished every day and the look itself is created by professionals. Gone are the days when you’ll worry if you’ll be able to pull off the perfect lash line like you did last week. And instead, waking up with lined eyes done by the professionals and not even having to redo it throughout the day is a luxurious feel in itself.

As the result can last for quite a long time, eyeliner embroidery is cost-effective. You can save a lot from buying not only eyeliners but also cotton balls and makeup remover for the routine that can add up to the cost spent per year. Even if the treatment may seem expensive at a first glance, the time taken for the look to last until it fades slowly away saves a lot. What’s more, eyeliner embroidery doesn’t require a lot of maintenance except only for the first few weeks.

That said, before getting eyeliner embroidery for your eyes, there are a few things that you need to do before, during, and after the treatment to ensure that the results will last for as long as it is intended.

What’s The Procedure For The Treatment

Before The Treatment

Before undergoing eyeliner embroidery is all about discussion and consultation. Your esthetician will discuss the eyeliner look that you’d like (such as the thickness, outline, and shape of the look), analyze facial features and eye shape, draw out the chosen look with eyeliner to determine if it will fit, and make adjustments and tweaks as necessary. 

After you’re truly satisfied with the final look, the esthetician will make a record of it (either by taking photos from multiple angles) for the treatment day.

During the consultation, the esthetician will also determine if you are suitable to go for it, such as if you have any medical condition or upcoming surgery, or perhaps you’re currently pregnant or breastfeeding. Having any of the restrictions mentioned means you’ll have to reschedule the appointment for the treatment to a more suitable date. Plus, the esthetician will also advise on certain things that you need to do or to avoid before the appointment, as shown below. 

During The Treatment

During the big day, the artist will clean and dry the eye area and apply a layer of numbing cream to minimize any discomfort throughout the process. The cream may be applied more if needed so that you’ll stay comfortable. The artist then creates the eyeliner look that you want, that can take some time between one to two hours.

After the treatment, you can pretty much continue with your daily activities as there’s virtually no downtime for the procedure. That said, expect a thin layer of skin peeling at the treated area to appear within 1,2 day after the treatment but rest assured it’ll peel off by itself in a week. As long as the area is kept dry and clean, the eye area will heal fully in one-month minimum. After a month, that’s when the end result will show, and you can enjoy the benefits of the treatment for a year or two. 

What Do I Need To Prepare Before And After Getting Eyeliner Embroidery

As undergoing eyeliner embroidery means you have to lay down rather still throughout the process. And there are some things that you need to do and avoid to ensure you’ll be getting the final look that you want, and for it to last long as well.

If you have any plans for procedures surrounding the eye area, it’s advisable to schedule it at least one month before eyeliner embroidery treatment (instead of the other way around) to give the particular area to heal well before the procedure. On no account you should take any blood-thinning medications three to five days before the appointment and if you have to take it, the esthetician will be happy to reschedule it. 

As for post-op aftercare, eyeliner embroidery is relatively low maintenance, and only a few things that you need to do diligently for the first few weeks such as ensuring the eye is dry and clean, and preventing any contact with water, especially for the first week. Eye makeup is also not advisable for the first week as it’ll interrupt the skin’s initial healing process and when you can apply eye makeup afterward, opt for a water-based makeup remover (like micellar water) instead of an oil-based one.
