Eyeliner Embroidery 101: Everything You Need To Know

Do you wish your eyeliner was always perfectly sharp at the ends? Have you given up on applying eyeliner in the morning before going to work?

We understand. After all, the additional five to ten minutes it takes to get that flawless, even appearance may be better spent getting a little more beauty sleep.

Eyeliner embroidery in Singapore is a semi-permanent cosmetic technique that uses pigment to define your eyes along your lash line. It’s commonly applied to the upper lash line and, sometimes, the outside corner of the lower lash line as well. Your beauty professional will recommend the best solution based on your eye shape and preferences.

During your beauty therapist consultation, she will examine your eye shape and facial characteristics before proposing an appropriate form and thickness of the eyeliner embroidery.

The form will then be marked out with a pencil so that you can comment on how to alter it further to your preferred look. Next, the beauty therapist will clean your eye region before delicately lining your eyes with the pigment.

A typical session lasts two and a half hours, and the embroidery lasts 12 to 24 months, depending on your skin type, skin cell turnover rate, and how well you care for it.

How does the procedure work?


Your selected artist will schedule a meeting with you before the procedure to establish if you are a good candidate for the treatment. In addition, they would urge you to postpone any eye-related cosmetic procedure for at least a month before your eyeliner embroidery session.

Furthermore, if you have a medical condition that interferes with wound healing, or if you are pregnant or nursing, your artist will urge you not to undertake the therapy.


When you come for your appointment, your artist will try to understand your preferences and demands, including the form, length, and thickness of your intended appearance. If you need a visual reference, you may ask them to draw the eyeliner for you.


When your artist has a thorough knowledge of your specifications, they will begin the treatment procedure. To start, your artist will clean the area around your eyes with gentle soap and apply numbing cream to alleviate any discomfort you may feel throughout the operation.

To create the desired look, the pigment will be placed along the upper lash line and the outer part of the lower lash line. Your artist will ensure that both eyeliners are aligned and balanced throughout the procedure.

Finally, your artist will apply the final touches and clean your eye region, and the treatment will be over. The complete treatment, including the consultation, will most likely take 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on the desired size and form of your embroidered eyeliner.

What is the downtime like?

Minor swelling around your eyes is to be expected in the first 1 to 4 days following therapy. This is typical, so don’t be concerned. The colour may darken throughout this period owing to pigment oxidation. This will clear up in the following days.

You will also see some scabbing surrounding the region after a few days. Your skin will begin to flake after scabbing. Allow it to fall off naturally rather than peeling it off since this may damage the evenness of the pigment.

What aftercare advice should I practise?

Dab lightly with a soft, wet cloth to keep the area clean. Don’t forget to use your aftercare cream for the first week following treatment.

Avoid putting your eyes in touch with water for a week following treatment to ensure the pigment is properly preserved. As a result, you may need to take a week off from your fitness programme to prevent strenuous exercise and excessive sweating.

Avoid wearing make-up for 14 days following treatment, and any cosmetic procedures, like facials, for at least 28 days.
