What is Lip Blush and how does it work?
Lips are a main focal point; just like eyebrows of course! Very few people have perfectly symmetrical lips to begin with. As we age, lips can become thinner and lose their natural lustre and colour.
Lip Blush Tattoos, enhance the natural shape of your lips, giving them that boost of vitality and colour. It is an extremely popular, semi-permanent makeup treatment providing a flush of colour as well as defining the contours of the lip. There is a wide selection of pigments that are available to help enhance the natural lip colour as well as suit your preference. These will help provide a subtle colour boost and create definition, correct medical asymmetry and even camouflage scars. The final result will resemble a subtle, matt, natural toned lipstick look.
We begin by mapping out a natural border to the lip using makeup. Once we have your design approval, anaesthetic cream is applied to minimize discomfort. Selected pigments are then blended and deposited into the skin with a very fine needle via a small hand held cosmetic tattoo device.
How long does it take?
Lip Blush procedures do take slightly longer than other treatments as the lips are more prone to swelling during treatment. If this should occur, swelling will quickly fade and will disappear completely within three to five days. Expect the procedure to take around an hour and a half to three hours. The colour density will appear stronger than you anticipated at first, but this will fade after three to four days.
A touchup is often required, but not necessary. Touchups are included in price. We book our touchups six to eight weeks from the initial appointment.
Lip Blush tattoos are meant to be subtle. If you are looking for a solid lipstick look, this is not the treatment for you. Although they can look quite solid when they are first completed, they should heal to a soft, sheer, 'candy coated' tint. I love to refer to this Lip Blush style as 'Candy Lips'.
-PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING LIP TINTING-
* if you’ve had lip fillers, you MUST wait at least 1 month before getting your lips tattooed
* If you’ve EVER had even 1 cold sore on the outside of your mouth or on your lips you MUST take Valtrex at least 3 days prior, and 3 days after, getting your lips tattooed. If you don’t- this procedure will trigger an outbreak that will affect healing- so this is very important & very easy to avoid!
