ALL ABOUT CLASSIC EYELINER

This class concentrates on all aspects of eyeliner pigmentation. The eyeliner is one of the most challenging areas in permanent makeup. Psychological factors and specific clients’ fears before needles enter the skin and natural eyes responders like tearing, and muscles twitching make our work more difficult. Mastering the proper eyeliner technique ensures comfort for both the client and PMU artist. Skilled pigmentation will allow achieving satisfactory results in the shortest possible time, avoiding much irritation. The proper shape of the liner should closely correspond with the client’s natural eye shape to enhance their beauty. Learning how to approach different eyelids (young, mature, vascular) will assure successful and safe pigmentation.
