What is a lash liner treatment?

While we all love the look of eyeliner, getting a perfectly straight, even line can be challenging for even the best makeup artists. And that's before the challenge of finding a liner that doesn't budge all day (or night). Nobody wants smudgy panda eyes!

But imagine being able to wake up with perfectly lined eyes, each and every day. Whether it's just your upper lids or upper and lower lids, permanent lash liner could be the answer to your prayers.

While a lash liner treatment is considered a form of permanent, rather than semi-permanent makeup (a top up will be needed every 3-5 years), the idea of not having to fiddle with liquid liner, pens or kohl ever again is a prospect that many of us can appreciate.

Just as when you choose to line your eyes, a consultation with Kseniia can help you to determine which type of permanent eye liner is best for you. You can choose thin, barely-there lines that simply help emphasise your eye's natural shape, or choose a perfect winged style without having to fiddle around with lines and angles yourself. You can choose a classic black line, or a softer, more natural brown. Whichever you choose, your eyes will pop, day and night.

Kseniia will work with you and if you're not sure which style you would like, she would always suggest starting with a gentle, smaller line that really focuses on adding pigment between the lashes for a truly natural look. After all, you can always top this up to the winged liner of your wildest dreams if you choose to, but taking it away is a much more complex process. Her artistic skills and background mean that she understands the face's natural contours and shapes and can map out the perfect style and shade of liner to work with you.

Lash Liner

A lash liner treatment is perfect if you find that your eyeliner is always smudged and bleeds after a short period of wear. It can be ideal if you wish to emphasise and accentuate the natural shape of your eyes, or if you have sparse lashes that you wish to make look thicker.

It's a really great, all-round treatment and something that most people can benefit from, thanks to how customisable it is. It's ideal if you are too busy to apply makeup every day, but want to still look polished and 'ready to go.'

Who is a lash liner treatment suitable for?

Does lash liner hurt?

No! It's one of the most (if not the most) painless semi-permanent makeup treatment there is.

Your eye area will be completely numbed before Kseniia begins treatment and the process is fast (usually it will be done in under an hour). There is very little swelling or redness and soreness after treatment, which means that following treatment, you can simply go about your day.

How much does a lash liner treatment cost?

A lash liner treatment with Kseniia at her beauty studio in Gerrards Cross, including a full consultation, aftercare kit, and a follow up perfecting session after 4-6 weeks costs £400.

A retouch and colour boost costs between £200-£250, depending on how long it has been since your last treatment.

Before your lash liner treatment

Kseniia requests that her clients do not have any facial Botox around your eyes, or dermal filler under your eyes or in your cheekbones or temples for 28 days before your treatment.

Avoid any Retinol or vitamin A treatments in the eye area for a month before treatment.
If you have a stye on your eye, or are experiencing conjunctivitis when you are due to have treatment, please call Kseniia's beauty lounge in Gerrard's Cross to reschedule. If you have glaucoma, you must have written permission from your doctor to have a lash liner treatment
If you wear contact lenses, these must be removed before treatment, so bring glasses if you need them.
As one of the very few lash liner makeup studios in Gerrard's Cross and Beaconsfield area, if you are travelling from further afield, please ensure you arrive ten minutes before your appointment time, as Kseniia studio is busy and appointment times must be strictly adhered to. During your treatment, Kseniia will carry out a full permanent makeup consultation, to ensure that this is the best treatment for you, and that you are fully aware of the outcomes and the aftercare that will be needed, post-treatment.
Preparing for your lash liner treatment is very easy.
Do not tint, lift or perm your lashes for 48 hours before your lash liner treatment with Kseniia.
Avoid alcohol and aspirin in the 24 hours before Kseniia sees you for your treatment. Be sure not to wear eye makeup or mascara to your appointment and if you wear lash extensions, please remove these the week before treatment.
Lash liner aftercare advice
⠀⠀⠀⠀No contact lenses for 72 hours after treatment.

⠀⠀ ⠀Wait at least 14 days before lash extensions, though please bear in mind that if you are coming back for a top up session, it may be worth you not having new extensions until after this has happened and any healing has taken place.

⠀⠀ ⠀Avoid wearing mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow or curling your lashes for 14 days after treatment. This is to ensure your eyes are not at risk of infection.

⠀⠀ ⠀Any swelling should be minimal. At your appointment, Kseniia will give you an aftercare pack and full instructions on how to care for your new lash liner. Please be sure to follow her directions.

⠀⠀ ⠀As with microblading, your lash liner will go through a process where it darkens for 5-7 days, before any scabs fall away. It may then look as though your lash liner is fading or patchy. This is perfectly normal and is not indicative of the final result. This will be visible within 4-6 weeks when the healing cycle is complete.
⠀⠀ ⠀You must avoid any soap, cleanser, moisturiser or sunscreen on the treated area for at least 7 days.

⠀⠀ ⠀Avoid any hot and humid conditions, such as showers and steam rooms and saunas for 14 days after treatment.

⠀⠀ ⠀Avoid the sun for 14 days after treatment, and be sure to wear sunglasses if necessary.

⠀⠀ ⠀Try not to pick or scratch the skin and do not pull any scabs or flakes. Let them fall naturally when they are ready.

⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀If your eyes feel sore, you may use saline solution to hydrate or rinse them. Gently pat dry afterwards.
