Sophia Loren once said, “Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.”  The eyes can project how you feel and also speak for you, and it’s important you do what you can to accentuate your eyes and look your very best. Worn for thousands of years, eyeliner is one of the oldest of cosmetic histories, and definitely the most popular.

I’ll admit that when I think of eyeliner, it is hard not to think of Cleopatra. Famed for her rather exciting love affairs with two of the greatest powers in Ancient Rome and her captivating beauty, she knew how to make an impact.  And her biggest beauty style? Heavily kohl-lined eyes (think Elizabeth Taylor in the title role).

Even today eyeliner still has mass appeal by women of all ages.  But the most amazing thing about eyeliner is that the way we wear it has not changed over thousands of years. It remains extraordinarily consistent.

So what does eyeliner do for the eyes?

If you’re applying top eyeliner, it will make your eyelashes look fuller but if drawn too thick can overpower the eyes and make them look smaller.  If you’re applying bottom eyeliner, this will help accentuate your eye color.  But the problem with bottom eyeliner is that it smudges and smears easily.  Lastly, if you’re going to line the top and bottom you can create a completely different shape of the eyes, which is always fun for date nights!

With all that said, I believe the best way to get that dressed up look and reap all of the benefits of eyeliner is through Permanent Makeup.

Eyeliner is one of Alicia’s most requested procedures.  With this procedure, Alicia designs a look that best compliments your natural eye shape.  Thin, thicker, top, bottom or both, Alicia would sit with you for the beginning of your appointment and draw on to show you the plan of action before actually tattooing. That plan would include color, thickness and shape.  Or maybe the most popular, yet very subtle look of the Eyelash Line Enhancement may be more for you.  This is where carefully placed brown, black/brown or black pigment between your lashes on your lash line.  This procedure gives your lashes the appearance of having darker and thicker lashes that accentuate the white in your eyes.

This beauty enhancement will have everyone asking where you got your permanent makeup done, and you can feel free to brag!

Whatever look you decide, once completed you won’t have to worry about applying your own eyeliner for a couple years. Putting on eyeliner every morning gets tiresome and time consuming.  Permanent makeup could alleviate that problem for you; book your appointments with Alicia today to wake up flawless and ready for your day!
