Permanent Cosmetic Eyeliner
Eyeliner creates a contrast in color by making the white look brighter and the color of the eyes more vivid & the illusion of fuller lashes. Whether you prefer a “barely there” effect – thin, thick or smudgy eyeliner, we customize the artistry to the individual design requirements of our clients. Permanent eyeliner can enhance skimpy lash lines and make even the thinnest lashes look thicker, fuller and darker.
