1. What is an 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.
Regarding eyeliner colour, most customers are curious if they can choose a pigment colour for Eyeliner Embroidery. To make the eyeliner look visible and obvious enough to have a visually enhancing effect, black is recommended. However, you can choose the shade of black you want depending on your preference.
Types of Eyeliner Embroidery
There are different types of Eyeliner Embroidery depending on the studio you visit.
Here at Dreamlash, we provide two unique types of Eyeliner Embroidery:
• Natural Eyeliner Embroidery
• Classic Eyeliner Embroidery
Natural Eyeliner Embroidery involves pigments being implanted between layers of your lashes to create a fuller lash line effect. The result is subtle and appears more natural.
Classic Eyeliner Embroidery involves pigments being deposited on and above your lash line. The effect is more obvious as the liner is made thicker. This type is popular amongst ladies who put on heavier make-up and are looking to replace their eyeliner makeup routine.
2. How long does Eyeliner Embroidery last?
Eyeliner Embroidery typically lasts about a year. However, it could last up to two or three years, depending on how your skin takes the colour.
How often do you need to touch up permanent eyeliner?
Due to its semi-permanent nature, the eyeliner embroidery will fade over time, and people generally come back after about a year to filled-up the colour.
Can I remove my Eyeliner Embroidery if I don’t like it?
If you wish to remove your Eyeliner Embroidery, you do have the option to laser it off or to do a manual removal method by professionals. However, note that both methods can only remove the pigments partially.
To prevent potential dissatisfaction with your newly embroidered eyeliners, make sure to do thorough research before selecting a qualified artist to do your eyeliner embroidery. It is also important to communicate your expectations clearly before the start of the procedure.
3. Is Eyeliner Embroidery Painful?
Without applying the numbing agent, it can be very painful on the eyes as fine needles of are used to implant the pigment into your delicate eyelid skin. Luckily, with the application of a numbing agent, the whole process is made comfortable for you. Your eyes will only feel a slight vibration of the handpiece which your artist uses to implant the pigment.
In the midst of the procedure, do not hesitate to ask your beauty technician to apply more numbing agents if you start to feel slight pain from the needle. Take note that the treatment will take longer because you have to wait for 15-20 minutes before the numbing agent takes effect.

Before the Procedure
For your safety and health reasons, you should avoid taking blood-thinning medications 3-5 days prior to the procedure. If you have any plans for cosmetic procedures around your eye area, you should do it 1 month before your Eyeliner Embroidery procedure. If you are pregnant, lactating or having medical conditions that would affect wound healing, you should avoid this procedure.

After the Procedure
What is the healing process like?

• Avoid oil-based makeup removal products
• Avoid sunscreen or whitening products around the eye area
• Avoid perming or dying your eyelash for 1 week
