Things You Need To Know Before Getting an Eyeliner Embroidery

Eyeliner embroidery is a popular beauty trend that can enhance your eyes and save you time and hassle from applying eyeliner every day. But before you book your appointment, there are some things you should know about this semi-permanent makeup procedure. In this blog post, we will answer some frequently asked questions and give you some tips on how to prepare and care for your eyeliner embroidery.

What is eyeliner embroidery?

Eyeliner embroidery is a type of semi-permanent makeup treatment that places pigment along the upper lash line and some on the outer half of the lower lash line, to create thicker, darker, and more naturally defined eyes. It can be done using machine embroidery or manual embroidery. Typically, machine embroidery is faster, more precise and less of a pain.

What are the benefits of eyeliner embroidery?

Eyeliner embroidery has many benefits, such as:

  • It can make your eyes look bigger, brighter, and more awake.
  • It can enhance your natural eye shape and colour.
  • It can create a fuller lash line effect and reduce the appearance of sparse lashes.
  • It can save you time and money from buying and applying eyeliner products.
  • It can last for up to two or three years, depending on how your skin takes the colour.
  • It can withstand water, sweat, and tears, so you don’t have to worry about smudging or fading.

How to choose the right eyeliner embroidery for you?

There are different types of eyeliner embroidery depending on the studio you visit and your personal preference. Here are some examples:

  • Natural Eyeliner Embroidery: This involves pigments being implanted between layers of your lashes to create a subtle and natural look. This is suitable for those who want a minimalistic and low-maintenance style.
  • Classic Eyeliner Embroidery: This involves pigments being deposited on and above your lash line. The effect is more obvious and dramatic as the liner is made thicker. This is suitable for those who want a more defined and glamorous style.
  • Winged Eyeliner Embroidery: This involves extending the liner beyond the outer corner of your eye to create a winged or cat-eye effect. The effect is more eye-catching and fashionable as the liner is made longer. This is suitable for those who want a more adventurous and trendy style.

How to prepare for your eyeliner embroidery session?

Before you go for your eyeliner embroidery session, here are some things you should do to ensure a smooth and safe process:

  • Do your research and choose a reputable and experienced studio and technician. You can ask for their portfolio, reviews, and testimonials to see their work and quality.
  • Avoid drinking alcohol, caffeine, or taking blood-thinning medications for at least 24 hours before your session, as they can increase the risk of bleeding and bruising.
  • Remove any eye makeup, contact lenses, and lash extensions before your session, as they can interfere with the pigment application and healing process.
  • Consult with your technician and decide on the type, shape, thickness, and colour of your eyeliner embroidery. Make sure you are satisfied with the design before they start the procedure.
  • Inform your technician of any allergies, medical conditions, or medications that you have, as they may affect the suitability and outcome of the eyeliner embroidery.

What to expect during and after your eyeliner embroidery session?

During your eyeliner embroidery session, here are some things you can expect:

  • Your technician will apply a numbing cream or lotion to your lash line to reduce the pain and discomfort. However, you may still feel some pressure, vibration, or stinging sensation during the procedure.
  • Your technician will use a fine needle or a machine to insert the pigment along your lash line. The procedure may take about an hour or more, depending on the type and complexity of your eyeliner embroidery.
  • Your technician will give you some aftercare instructions and products to help with the healing and maintenance of your eyeliner embroidery.

After your eyeliner embroidery session, here are some things you can expect:

  • Your eyeliner embroidery may look darker, thicker, and more intense than you expected, but don’t worry, as it will fade and soften over time.
  • You may experience some swelling, redness, itching, or scabbing around the area, but these are normal and temporary side effects that will subside within a few days or weeks.
  • You should avoid rubbing, scratching, or picking at your eyeliner embroidery, as this can cause infection, scarring, or pigment loss.
  • You should avoid any water, makeup, or skincare products on your eyeliner embroidery for at least a week, as this can affect the healing and colour retention.
  • You should avoid any sun exposure, swimming, sauna, or steam for at least a month, as this can cause fading or discolouration.
  • You should apply the aftercare products as instructed by your technician, such as antibacterial ointment, moisturiser, or sunscreen, to protect and nourish your eyeliner embroidery.
  • You should go for a touch-up session after about a month or two, to fill in any gaps, adjust the shape, or intensify the colour of your eyeliner embroidery.

Is eyeliner embroidery safe and suitable for everyone?

Eyeliner embroidery is generally safe and suitable for most people, as long as it is done by a qualified and hygienic technician using high-quality and sterile equipment and materials. However, there are some cases where eyeliner embroidery may not be recommended, such as:

  • If you have any eye infections, injuries, or diseases, such as conjunctivitis, glaucoma, or cataracts.
  • If you have any skin conditions, allergies, or sensitivities, such as eczema, psoriasis, or keloids.
  • If you have any medical conditions, such as diabetes, epilepsy, or autoimmune disorders.
  • If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or undergoing chemotherapy2].

If you are unsure whether eyeliner embroidery is suitable for you, you should consult your doctor or technician before proceeding with the procedure.
