Permanent Eyeliner Training
Are you someone who can’t leave the house without eyeliner? Do you have trouble getting your eyeliner straight and even? Are your allergies to cosmetic products causing you to have to re-apply your eyeliner several times a day? Does applying your eyeliner take you 20 minutes or longer in the morning?
Chances are you’ve already heard of microblading, or powder brows, but have you ever heard of permanent eyeliner? People with the same problems listed above have discovered that permanent eyeliner is a great, pain-free, natural looking option for these problems.
Some women don’t use eyeliner, but for me it’s a must. Using eyeliner gives me the opportunity to change my eye shape and fill in my sparse lashes. I, personally, opted for permanent eyeliner, and I find that it does accentuate my eyes and make my lashes look thicker even when I’m not wearing makeup. I wake up with eyeliner on, and if I decide to apply makeup, I have a guide to follow if I decide to apply additional eyeliner. Permanent eyeliner has given me confidence and a much easier application of additional liner which isn’t something that I anticipated but is honestly one of my favorite parts about having permanent eyeliner. I have received a lot of compliments, especially when I decide not to wear makeup for the day. As a permanent cosmetics artist myself, I can appreciate permanent eyeliner even more having it myself and I very strongly recommend permanent cosmetics to anyone debating getting it.
Eyeliner is used to accentuate the lash line and emphasize the shape of the eye by framing the eyelid. People with small eyes benefit very much from using eyeliner to give their eyes a bigger look. At Arkansas Permanent Cosmetics Institute we specialize in a natural looking eyeliner, along the lash line and through the lashes to give the appearance of thicker longer more luscious lashes.
Are you hoping to become a Permanent Cosmetics Artist?
Training to become a Permanent Cosmetics Artist at Arkansas Permanent Cosmetics Institute could be the first and best decision you make for your permanent cosmetics career. At APCI we offer permanent cosmetics services as well as permanent cosmetics training with the goal to educate confident artists in all areas of permanent cosmetics as well as paramedical services. Our Micropigmentologists who provide services out of our private suite offer help to students as well, by teaching theory and allowing students to observe various procedures. This allows students a chance to get a visual of what they will be doing after they finish the theory phase of their education. Training at APCI consists of 15 weeks of Theory which can now be completed online, or on-campus if you choose. Arkansas Permanent Cosmetics Institute is the first and only permanent cosmetics school in Arkansas to offer an online option in which students can still be involved in class. Our state-of-the-art Dolby Digital Teleconferencing system allows us to enroll busy, working students with large families who otherwise would not be able to fulfill their dream of becoming a licensed permanent cosmetics artist. Other schools in Arkansas require students to be on-campus Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. This keeps students from being able to work and provide for their family. We know that this is important to you. Our goal is to enroll the busiest of students, who are desperate to work towards a new career or additional licensing. After your first 15 weeks of training, you begin doing hands-on training and live models on Tuesdays and Thursdays to give you the experience you need with a machine in hand and a teacher nearby, ready to assist at any time. We are confident that we will allow students enough help to know exactly what they are doing before they even pick up their machine to break a client’s skin for the first time.
Training for an eyeliner procedure can seem scary at first. Most students say that eyeliner is something they are very afraid to try, but I ensure you it is easier than you think. Eyeliner is all about the stretch you apply to the skin, and the depth at which you implant the pigment. The first thing you learn about the eyeliner procedure is where to apply the pigment, and how to apply the pigment. Unlike brows, you do not start with an outline laid out for you (in most cases). You, instead, use the needle to place dots along the lash line, and then begin filling in between the dots. After you learn eyeliner, I promise you will say it is the easiest and fastest procedure out of the three.

Types of Eyeliner Procedures
Eyeliner procedures in permanent cosmetics are done with the purpose of accentuating the eye and giving the appearance of thicker eyelashes for our clients. For many clients who have issues growing eyelashes, a permanent cosmetics eyeliner procedure can give them the boost of confidence they need to feel beautiful constantly. But more than that, these procedures can help those with dexterity and sight issues that are unable to apply traditional cosmetic eyeliner. These clients are overjoyed to negate the need to spend up to forty-five minutes daily applying cosmetic eyeliner in order to feel confident. It raises our client’s spirits and gives them back the time they would have spent daily feeling frustrated at their inabilities. In order to ensure our clients are completely informed of all of the options available to them, it is important to review and discuss the different types of permanent cosmetics eyeliner procedures. After reviewing the options available, our clients can make an informed decision about which procedure will best fit their needs and goals for their permanent cosmetics procedure.
The simplest eyeliner procedure to complete in permanent cosmetics is a procedure called a lash enhancement. A lash enhancement is a procedure in which a thin line is tattooed along the lash line that accentuates and appears to thicken the eyelashes of our clients. This procedure is appropriate for those who like to wear a very small amount of eyeliner, or simply want to bring focus to their eyes through permanent cosmetics. These procedures produce very natural, beautiful thin eyeliner that can last years. The longevity of the permanent cosmetics varies from client to client depending on the client’s skin condition, healing process after the initial procedure, and the long-term care and maintenance of the procedure. Most permanent cosmetics artists insist that their clients receive an initial touch-up procedure 6 to 8 weeks after the first procedure to ensure that any patches caused by the healing process are filled in order to guarantee the longevity of the procedure. After the initial touch-up, artists commonly recommend that clients return for a touch-up procedure yearly or as needed to maintain their desired look and color of the procedure.
For those clients who are looking for a more bold look, permanent cosmetics artists offer a basic eyeliner procedure that is thicker than a lash enhancement. This eyeliner is thinner on the inner corners of the eye, and thicker on the outer corners to bring attention to the eyes. The thickness of the procedure depends on the goals and needs of the client, some clients insisting that their eyeliner is thick enough to meet the crease of their eye. Most permanent cosmetics artists during a consultation will ask the client how thick they might want the procedure to be and then draw eyeliner with a pencil on the client’s eye to confirm the thickness. Your artist will want to ensure that the thickness is good for you, but also will most likely inform you that there will be some fading and changing of the procedure during the healing process. Because of the healing process, the procedure might appear to be thinner weeks after the procedure. It is always better to choose a thinner design and wait to see what the procedure will be like after the healing process to then make decisions about whether you might want more applied during a touch-up session. In my experience, in most cases after the healing process, clients are eager to get their eyeliner touched up and drawn a little thicker. Most permanent cosmetics artists agree that it is important that these clients receive an initial touch-up 6-8 weeks after the procedure, and then continual touch-ups yearly in order to maintain your permanent cosmetics appearance.
Many young people love wearing winged eyeliner on a daily basis. It is very enticing to get that flick that defines your look permanently applied to your eyes. Fortunately, those who are trained can provide winged eyeliner procedures in permanent cosmetics to eager clients with beautiful results. When discussing winged eyeliner procedures, though, it is important to discuss the possible complications that can occur when it is applied by someone who has not been properly trained. Unfortunately, many people experience complications in which migration, or extensions of permanent cosmetics color away from the intended site of implantation through incorrect application, is prevalent on client’s faces. This often appears like black, grey, or blue spidery veins in the inner corners or outer corners of the eye sometimes extending down a client’s face near the temples. Regrettably, if this occurs, this mistake is very difficult to fix through additional permanent cosmetics procedures or more advanced laser procedures done by a qualified laser technician. For this reason, if you have your heart set on receiving a winged eyeliner procedure it is important to do the proper research into permanent cosmetics technicians in your area who have the experience and education necessary to perform this advanced procedure. Be sure to request before, after, and healed images of your chosen artist’s work in order to ensure that the artist will be able to correctly apply your winged eyeliner in a way that will produce the desired results. Some artists provide an extreme version of a winged eyeliner procedure that provides a very large and accentuated wing, but most artists that provide a winged eyeliner option will not extend the wing too far back for fear of complications. As previously stated, it is always better to start small and work your way up to the desired thickness slowly to avoid these extreme complications.
As always, these descriptions can assist you in making the decision about which procedure might be right for you, but always consult with your artist to ask any questions you may have about permanent cosmetics and eyeliner procedures. Your artist will be able to accurately assess which procedure will be right for you based on your facial structure, lifestyle, and skin condition. The only way, though, to ensure your results is through proper care for your permanent cosmetics procedure immediately after and over time. Receiving your touch-ups and continually taking the proper care of your procedure comes down to you, and when you do this correctly and consistently you will have gorgeous permanent cosmetics for years to come.
