Semi-Permanent Eyeliner

Achieve the ultra-precise ‘liquid-liner-look’ 24/7. Thicker, darker lashes and more defined eyes make a difference to your whole face, but creating this effect with ordinary make up can be difficult and it’s easy to overdo it. An expertly applied semipermanent eyeliner is the perfect solution, giving you professional make up results that stay put and don’t need to be removed every night or carefully ‘matched up’ every morning.



  • Enhance your lashes so they appear thicker and longer
  • Never worry about smudgy, runny eyeliner
  • Intensify your eye’s shape
  • Capture its dazzling colour
  • Perfect, even eyeliner every day
  • Decrease your time-consuming makeup application routine

What is the technique and is it safe?

Permanent eyeliner is a safe and natural-looking alternative to the expense and daily routine of applying makeup upon waking in the morning and often times throughout the day. It is a state-of-the-art technique of permanently applying makeup via intradermal micropigmentation. The treatment utilises a 100% single-use, disposable system to introduce quality semipermanent pigments to the skin. Permanent eye liner can be applied to line both the top and bottom lids, to create a soft look, a dramatic thick line, or anything in between.Properly applied by an experienced technician, permanent makeup will be more natural and realistic in appearance as compared to conventional cosmetics.

What happens during a Semi-permanent Eyeliner treatment?

Your treatment will begin with a consultation in our clinic discussing the shape and the colour of your preference to ensure a first class result! Like all of our procedures, everything is discussed and pencilled in prior to starting to ensure that you have total control with the style, colour and shape of your liner. You have the option of whether you want a  natural or dramatic result. It is all up to you! You are in complete control of your treatment. Once the process has been explained and you have agreed to the design, you will be required to fill in consent form and medical questionnaire and we take a copy of your ID as per current legislation. Our numbing process is as good as it gets and we only use top of the line topical anaesthetics to maximise your comfort.  The permanent makeup process starts once the treated area is numb. Once your new permanent eyeliner is complete you will be given written information on aftercare and the healing process.

Will it look “natural”? 
YES — It will look more natural than your own conventional make-up. Unless you tell somebody you’ve had it applied, they’ll never know. Empire Beauty specialises in “natural-looking” makeup and with an artistic eye will capture the natural beauty of the client.

 I have great difficulty applying my eyeliner. It usually ends up too thick or it ends up uneven. How will the permanent eyeliner look?
Truthfully, it will look sensational. A very conservative approach is used for those who are unsure of width or colour. The second application may be used as an opportunity to add more fullness or colour, if desired. Permanent make-up can be applied very evenly, precisely and smoothly.

How many applications are needed? 
Semi-permanent makeup is a 2-3 step process with most clients requiring 2 sessions for optimal results. However, many of her clients are fully satisfied with just one application. If a second application is needed, it is scheduled 4-8 weeks after the initial procedure.

Does it hurt? 
Very little discomfort is experienced during the procedure. In fact, the great majority of clients describe the sensation as a “‘tickling” feeling. The anaesthesia used is of a superior grade and is extremely effective.

How much does permanent eyeliner cost? 
Permanent eyeliner procedures generally range from £149-£299 depending on thickness and complexity. The second session, where needed, is charged at just £50. Corrective procedures are generally more expensive, and are individually priced.

How long does a procedure take?
Including the consultation, paperwork, and numbing time, the average length of time for one procedure is approximately 1.5- 2 hours. The second application is usually l hour or less.

 What is the healing period like? 
Swelling and redness are typically mild to moderate and most people can return to their normal activities within 48 hours. For approximately 7 days following the procedure, you will need to apply a thin film of ointment to the procedure site. During this healing period, you will notice the colour soften into your skin.

 How long does permanent makeup last? 
Permanent cosmetics are permanent in that you will always have a permanent marking on your skin. However, over time, you will notice a gradual softening of colour occurring each year. Many women feel that this is advantageous, as they feel that their permanent makeup will age with them. “Colour boosts” are recommended yearly to those who wish to keep their permanent makeup looking as fresh as possible.
