Would you like to have your Permanent Makeup Eyeliner done in California? Our clinic is located in Los Gatos, California. Los Gatos is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, just a few miles south of San Jose.
Permanent Makeup -Eyeliner which we call a Tightliner, enhances the eyes with a natural soft color or a dark defined look. There are many ways to do your eyes with permanent makeup. We don’t do thick or winged permanent eyeliner because the thicker designs don’t age well. The closer you stay to the lash line the better the permanent makeup ages and the less it looks like a “eyeliner tattoo”.
Whether your goal is soft and smudgy or dark and defined, a design and color consultation will help determine the right look for your desired outcome. We often combine techniques to customize your outcome. For example you can do a Tightline (permanent makeup tucked in your lash line) with a dark color such as black, then above that add a soft smudgy/smokey effect in a lighter color.
Our Permanent Eyeliner work is a natural look and not thick. We invite you for a complimentary consultation to discuss your design and color.Design options may include:
∼ Tightliner (upper or lower eyes)
If you prefer a very natural “no makeup look” and want your eyes to look brighter, bigger, and more awake, permanent eye color can be placed directly in the lash line (where your eyelashes grow out of), not the waterline, which is the thin wet area of skin below the lash line. Typically, this area directly in the lash line is hard to get to with our makeup pencil but makes such a difference. This technique results in a subtle, natural look that darkens, thickens and creates fuller lashes by enhancing the base of the lashes. Because you can only see the tightliner when the eyes are open, it works for all clients, regardless of age, race, eye shape, gender or skin tone. A “Tightliner” may range from thin to thick depending on your lash line thickness and compliments any further eye makeup such as smokey eyes.
∼ Tightliner + Smudge (upper or lower eyes)
This includes a Tightliner, placed at the lash base, and also extends just slightly beyond it. This is barely thicker than the “Tightliner” and shows a little color when your eyes are closed whereas you can’t see the tightener when your eyes are closed. The lower eyes may be done a lighter color than the upper eyes for a natural look.
The request for “cat eyes” will not be fulfilled! A Permanent Eyeliner that extends out and beyond the last lash will only fall with aging skin. Many clients choose to wear daily eye makeup thicker and bolder so they do apply more over their permanent makeup. But nonetheless, permanent makeup is still a great base and greatly enhances whatever makeup you wear over it.
