Top 10 Reasons Makeup Noobs Love Semi-Permanent Eyeliner

by Nikki Uson

Ladies, be honest: how many of you have been late to a night out because of your eyeliner?

We’ve all been there, trust me. Believe me when I say you don’t have to labor every day to get that perfect, clean line. The answer is simple: semi-permanent eyeliner!

Here are our top 10 reasons you should invest in semi-permanent eyeliner.

1. It saves time

Without a doubt the biggest reason beginners love semi-permanent eyeliner is all the time they save by not drawing them on every day! With semi-permanent eyeliner, you get to cut out one of the most time-consuming (and sometimes, even frustrating!) parts of your makeup routine, saving you anywhere between 5 – 20 minutes each day.

2. It saves money

Semi-permanent eyeliner can last between 1 – 2 years, so consider it a long-term investment. There's no need to shell out to replenish your eyeliner supply constantly.

3. It always looks good

Looking good has literally never been this easy! A semi-permanent eyeliner guarantees you envy-worthy liner on fleek all day, every day. You'll never have to worry about drawing straight and even lines again.

4. It gives you the perfect shape for your face

When it comes to semi-permanent eyeliner (and makeup, in general), it’s important to choose a technician who’s had a lot of experience because they’ve worked with different clients and eye shapes. An expert technician can help you pick the right thickness and length of liner to perfectly complement your eye and face shape as well as suit your own personal taste.

5. It helps people with allergies or personal limitations

Some people find it difficult to apply makeup because of their shaky hands or sensitive skin. With semi-permanent eyeliner, you won’t have to agonize over getting a perfect line or holding your eye open for an extended period of time. Best of all, the ink used with every procedure is suitable for most people, so even those who are sensitive to many makeup brands will find the ink agreeable with their skin.

6. It disguises sparse eyelashes

A great liner can mimic the effect of false eyelashes by filling in the small gaps between your own natural lashes. This gives the effect of having bigger and wider eyes with fuller lashes, so you look instantly awake!

7. It boosts your confidence

When you feel good about yourself, you radiate from within. Knowing you have perfect eyeliner 24/7 makes you more confident and gives you that extra kick to help you conquer a busy day.

8. It remains smudge-free

Thanks to semi-permanent eyeliner, you can go through your day without worrying about it. No need to retouch or redo your liner even after hours spent sweating at the gym, partying in the club, or even swimming at the beach or pool

9. It reduces the wear on your skin

Applying eyeliner puts strain on your eyelids. To get the perfect line, beginners often have to pull the skin taut, and when repeatedly done, causes wear on your skin leading to pre-mature wrinkles and fine lines. With semi-permanent eyeliner, you only have to pull your eyelids taut once (during the procedure) and then never again for the next 2 years!

10. It's a quick and painless procedure

Semi-permanent eyeliner tattooing is done in just under 2 hours from start to finish!

Have we already convinced you to make the switch? We spoke to the experts at Jesi Mendez Salon, and they walked us through the entire procedure. Here's what you can expect:

Each session begins with a quick cleansing of the eye area with a bactin cleanser. You’ll be provided with eye drops so your eyes stay lubricated and comfortable. An anesthetic cream is then applied to your eyelids and left on for 45 minutes to guarantee a pain-free procedure.

Using a Semi-Permanent Makeup Machine, an expert technician meticulously draws on your eyeliner. Jesi Mendez uses only the latest Semi-Permanent Makeup Machine for all of their procedures. This procedures last 30 minutes on average.

You’ll be given an aftercare kit which has everything you need, including antibiotics to protect your skin. Make sure to come back after 4-8 weeks for a complimentary touch-up!
