& smokey eye tattoo
Lash enhancement is the process of applying pigment to your lash line and is designed to create an effect of darker and fuller eyelashes. It gives a natural finished look and makes your eyes “pop”!
What is lash enhancement? a tattoo of your lash line, NOT the waterline nor the eyelid, but directly where your lashes grow. Saki uses an iron oxide based black pigment. There’s a week long dry heal. Some puffiness can be normal for right after and the following couple of days. Unless one has extremely sensitive eyes and they experience more than the usual puffiness or redness, it shouldn’t affect normal day-to-day activities.
A smokey eye tattoo is a lash enhancement tattoo plus a subtle, smokey eye liner with a little wing.
If you wear contact lenses- you will need to remove them prior to the procedure. You may reapply them after, but eyes might be somewhat sensitive so it’s encouraged to bring eyewear.
Each lash enhancement appointment takes 1.5-2hr and a smokey eye appointment takes about 3hr.
**Kindly send over a clear, well lit photo of your eyes to get pre approved for these services**
Here are a few things to keep in mind before booking:
No fake lashes - they have to be removed at least 2 weeks prior to the appointment and can’t be put back on til 2 weeks after the touch up.
No lash serums for at least one month before.
No lash lifts/tints at least 10 days prior, and must wait 2 weeks after touch up
No Blepharitis (eyelid infection, usually caused by poor makeup removal habits and falsies)
Eye surgery needs a min of 6 months before tattoo
But surgery on the actual eye itself needs a note from doctor
Aftercare/What to Expect:
We recommend on a dry healing method (until the scabs are gone - usually it takes about one week, might be longer for some, but generally about that time)
day 1- may be some swelling by end of day. Clients may apply ice over a clean cloth, but not directly on skin.
day 2- may be some swelling, but should go down by the end of this day or the next.
day 3- skin may feel dry, this is normal. Light layer of coconut/grapeseed oil may be applied, but very carefully and not in excess.
day 4 onward- continue to keep area dry and free of makeup/products until scabs are gone (no sauna, pools, sunbathing, do not peel scabs)
Between appointments, be careful not to use creams/products that contain acids or ingredients that will lighten or exfoliate the skin.
