Our Semi Permanent Eyeliner Options
We offer a range of eyeliner treatments that are designed to complement your natural beauty, preferences and style. Depending on the thicknes, eyeliner can be softly emphasized or clearly defined. Eyeliner treatments are incredibly effective at drawing attention to the eyes and can be as subtle or dramatic as required. Knowing everyone has different eye colours and own individual preferences, we offer a range of styles and colours to suit your preferences. You can choose between black, brown, grey and blue pigments. Also white or pale pink highlighting colors are available for eye enhancement.
For those women who don’t wear much eyeliner, a nice way to enhance the eyes is to put color right in the eyelash area which is an amazing ‘eye opener’ which gives the appearance of thicker, darker and more defined eyelashes. By applying soft, natural colour between your lash line you make them seem fuller. Eyelash enhancement is a perfect alternative for those who don`t feel comfortable with eyeliner make-up but who would like to subtly enhance the eyes without the use of make-up. The effect created is similar to using mascara butvwithout smudging or running.
A soft line can be placed on the top or bottom eyelids to enhance the eyes. The eyes can be further adorned with almond eyeliner, shaped to bring a deeper more seductive look. Eye liner as the name implies is applied just above and/ or between the lash line and can be fine or voluminous as the client requires. You have a choice of a few pigment colours and effects to find something which really suits you. Every woman who wants her eyes to look less ‘bare and unnoticeable’ without make-up can benefit from semi permanent eyeliner.
