Eyeliner: Pre-Care

After your permanent cosmetics procedure, slight redness and irritation of the area should be expected. Depending on your skin sensitivity, swelling of the area may persist. This can be remedied by applying a clean ice pack or bag of ice (dry – wrapped in towel) over the area in 10-minute intervals. Keep the area clean and free from dirt and oil.

No mascara for 5 days and no eyeliner/eye makeup  for 7 days. 


Wash your hands with an anti-bacterial soap before tending to the area.


Wash the area, twice a day, with water and a mild, fragrance-free soap. Do not use an exfoliator or any acid based product.

Gently pat the area dry with a clean paper towel and apply a very thin layer of Aquaphor. Reapply the Aquaphor 2 to 3 times throughout the day, maintaining a thin, moist barrier protecting the area at all times. Repeat this for 3-4 days following the procedure.

  • Applying an excess amount of Aquaphor may cause an infection. Do not apply any healing agents to the area, as they may strip the applied pigment.

  • If scabbing or peeling occurs, do not pick or peel the scab. Do not apply makeup directly on top of the treated area. If you wear makeup around the area, remove it with water and a mild, fragrance-free soap. Avoid makeup removers and harsh cleansers.
