What is Lip Blushing?
Lip blushing is a form of semi permanent makeup in which a customized pigment is implanted into your lips. Enhance your natural lip shape, symmetry, and lip color. Think of it as a natural looking “blush” to your lips, a subtle lip stain and liner. Your lips will have a fresh, healthier appearance and a perfect shape.
This technique involves creating a very soft and subtle outline of your lips with a lip color that best suits your skin coloring and desired look. This soft line is then blended and shaded when filling in your lips with the pigment. By doing this, we are avoiding the “lined lip” look, and therefore creating the illusion of fuller, natural looking lips.You will be able to apply traditional lip glosses and lip stick colors, or leave them “untouched” and perfect.
Your lips will look like lipstick on the first day, and soften as they heal to become a very subtle, natural looking lip tint. Apply a little gloss or balm and your lips look beautiful 24-7!
If you are prone to cold sores, lip tattooing can cause outbreaks. We ask that our clients take their prescribed anti-viral medication a few days prior to their appointment and after the procedure to prevent any cold sores.
If you have an outbreak, or any other type of scratch/acne we ask that you reschedule your appointment.
What should I expect after the procedure?
There may be moderate swelling, redness and bruising for the first 3 days.
If you experience swelling, use an ice pack for no more than 15 minutes at a time to reduce swelling.
During the initial healing period, there should be minimal scabbing or flaking of the skin. If there is some scabbing or flaking, do not pick, and allow the scab or dry skin to come off on its own. This usually takes place within the first 3 days.
Expect the color to lighten up to 50-70% once the healing process is complete.
Color may appear uneven at different stages of healing. Be patient. This is a process that does not yield immediate results.
Permanent makeup ink is not the same as body art ink, and by design it does not last as long as body art ink. Permanent Makeup does fade and is expected to last 2 to 5 years before requiring a touch-up. Maintenance touch ups are suggested for best results.
It can take 2 sessions prior to achieving the level of saturation you may desire.
