Lip Blushing…Everything you need to know
While a lot of us want fuller, more defined lips, we might not be willing to get painful, expensive injections to achieve the results. Even if your lips are already on the plumper side, you can experience loss of color and definition as you age. Luckily, thanks to lip tattooing, often called lip blushing, you can remedy this without a visit to the plastic surgeon’s office.
I provides my clients with lip blush tattoos to create a youthful and natural-looking pout that lasts for years. The pigment is applied with a tattoo needle (not as scary as it sounds, trust us) to define the shape of your lips and add a subtle color. Rather than the harsh results of old-school lip tattoos, lip blushing is all about enhancing your feature, naturally.
Soft Lip Blushing
Lip blushing is a type of semipermanent cosmetic tattooing procedure achieved by depositing pigments in your lips using small needles. … Lip blushing focuses on altering both color and shape to create younger-looking lips. Everyone’s lips are different, and there’s no one standard of beauty.
Saturated Lip Blushing
Having a full lip colour tattoo is perfect for you if you wish to enhance the shape and fullness of your mouth. It’s also useful for correcting asymmetries. You may wish to try this procedure if you’re older and have lost lip definition, colour or shape. If you love to look glamorous 24/7, this lip tattoo procedure can be carried out to look like a full lipstick application.
Lip Blushing Colour Healing Process
How your lip colour will heal.
Days 1-2: You love your new lip color!
Your lip color will appear brighter than it will heal. Your lips will also feel swollen and tender. Your color will begin to darken temporarily throughout the day as the pigment oxidizes.
Days 3-14: Swelling will have finished.
Your lips will feel dry and start the flaking process. Allow shedding to happen naturally. As your lips flake, it will appear that your lip color is very light and “frosty”. This is only temporary as you are still healing. Over the next several days your lip color will reappear until it fully blooms.
Days 28-42: It’s time for your follow up.
By this time your lips are fully healed and it’s recommended that you come back in to touch up any color that might have healed too light or at all imperfectly. Applying a second layer of new color will build off of your previous color, creating a more saturated and longer-lasting lip. During this appointment, you also have the opportunity to further adjust the shape if desired.
