Keep Your Eye Makeup Looking Polished All Day with Permanent Eyeliner Care in Snohomish County Including Seattle, Everett and Lynnwood

Eyeliner services offer the ideal placement and style of your makeup for everyday wear with no daily hassle. You can wake up and look ready to face the world, confident that your eyeliner is always on-point. To ensure your permanent eyeliner application and retention are optimal, use these preparation and aftercare steps as your guide.


Getting ready for your permanent makeup appointment for your eyeliner is just as important as preparing for lip blush and powder brows sessions.

  • Lash serums cannot be used for a minimum of 6 months to a year before eyeliner services, depending on your skin type. They thin the skin and can cause major pigment migration and scarring. If your lash line is reddish-purplish, you can see a lot of veins, or your lash line is still itchy, you need to wait longer before getting a lash enhancement or eyeliner tattoo.
  • You must remove lash extensions and cannot put them back on until 4 weeks after the last eyeliner session. Talk to us about lash extension care if you would like to have both services.
  • No waterproof mascara or waterproof eyeliner may be used for 1 week prior to your appointment. No mascara of any type may be used for 2 days prior.
  • You may come with your eyeliner on how you like it as long as it is not waterproof, but please do not wear any other type of eye makeup to our lash spa.
  • Avoid scheduling your appointment on or around your menstrual cycle; it can increase pain and bleeding which affects retention.
  • DO NOT consume any blood thinners 48 hours before your procedure. These include caffeine, alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, niacin, vitamin E and Omega 3. They will cause excess bleeding and may affect your results including migration, bruising and poor retention.
  • Tanning should be avoided for at least 2 weeks prior and approximately 2 weeks after your treatment, or until all scabs have come off.
  • Stop using any skin thinners & lighteners (vitamin A, vitamin C, retinol, glycolic acids, alpha hydroxy) on the brow area 2 weeks before your appointment.
  • If you are getting a chemical peel, it is recommended that you ask your esthetician or dermatologist when they feel it is safe for you to get your brows done. We require you to wait at least 4 weeks before services.
  • If using any type of Accutane, you must stop topical application for at least 6 months prior and internal dosage (pills) for at least a year. Failure to do so can cause severe scarring.
  • Cosmetic Botox or fillers should be done at least 4 weeks prior and at least 4 weeks after the final session.  Do not get any Botox or fillers between your initial appointment and your perfecting session.

Aftercare is very important for producing a beautiful and lasting result with eyeliner services. Please understand the more products you use, the less effectively the procedure may heal. Failure to follow these aftercare instructions may result in infections, pigment loss or discoloration.

  • Ice packs are a nice relief for swelling and bruising. Never apply directly to the skin; use a towel between the ice pack and the skin. Use ice for 20 minutes maximum.
  • You may sleep with your head/upper body slightly elevated to reduce swelling.
  • Keep the area clean by washing with freshly washed hands and mild soap. Do not use a washcloth or sponge to remove soap. Simply splash with water and mild soap then pat dry. Do not use harsh cleansing creams, acne cleansers or astringents. Use a mild, fragrance-free and oil-free soap and plain or distilled water.
  •  If the area is itchy, do not scratch.
  • After cleansing, you may use a small amount of lightweight, oil-free moisturizer or your PMU artist may provide you with an aftercare ointment. Apply on your lid; it will migrate down towards your eye and cover the eyeliner area.
  • Once the area starts to scab, try to avoid getting wet and DISCONTINUE washing the area.
  • Do not scrub, rub or pick at the epithelial crust (scabs) that form; allow it to flake off by itself. If it is removed before it is ready the pigment underneath may be pulled out.
  • Do not use any makeup near the procedure area for at least 7 days or until scabs have fallen off. It is best to purchase new makeup if possible to avoid contamination or bacterial infection.
  • Do not use any lash serum until 4 weeks after your perfecting session. It is best to not use any lash serum after getting Eyeliner PMU due to the possibility of it thinning and making your skin more sensitive, as well as possibly changing pigment color.
  • Avoid sun exposure, including tanning, as well as saunas, working out or other activities that involve sweating until all scabs have fallen off.
  • Always use sunblock after the procedure area scabs have fallen off to protect from fading and sun damage.
  • Do your best to sleep on your back. If you do sleep on your side, the side that you sleep on will typically heal lighter than the side you do not sleep on.
The Healing Process: What to Expect

It is important to note that this is an estimated timeline, so don’t get too hung up on the days. Also, eyelids can be unpredictable: some clients may heal with a lot of pigment retention, some clients may yield very little pigment retention.

  • Day 1: Eyes may be swollen and the color is dark.
  • Days 2-6: Liner will start to flake and peel.
  • Days 4-14: Liner should be fully peeled, and it may not look like the color took.
  • Days 14 & beyond: The color will continue to develop over the next several weeks and can be patchy and uneven. The color typically fully develops at 4 weeks.
Perfecting Sessions

For best results, a second perfecting session with one of our PMU artists is required 8-10 weeks later, however, sometimes clients may require additional sessions. After the desired look is achieved, it is up to the client to decide when they come back for touch ups, as it is for lash and brow care as well as lip blush care. Generally, we recommend getting eyeliner touch ups every 1-2 depending on your color retention preference. If the previous PMU has faded to the point where it must be redrawn, it will be considered a new procedure and not a touch-up.

I just got the powder brows done and I am ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE with how they turned out!!! Ashley & Deanna really took their time making sure that my brows were perfect before the shading process was started. They look natural, yet put-together.
