What is Lip Blush?
Lip blush is a form of semi-permanent makeup. Essentially, it is a cosmetic tattoo of the lips that enhances the beauty of the natural lip colour, improving the shape of the lips, giving definition and the illusion of fullness.
Traditional permanent makeup uses a strong machine, synthetic pigments, and is embedded deep in the dermis. The permanent makeup of today is very different—we use organic pigments and modern, digital tools.
The Lip blush technique was created in Europe and is a modern form of tattooing colour on to your lips that is sheer, and nothing like the “lipstick” look of past years. Think of it as your lip colour, but subtly enhanced. Your lips will have a fresh, healthier appearance. This technique involves creating a very soft and subtle outline of your lips with a lip colour that best suits your skin colouring 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.
How Long Does This Last?
The results vary from person to person include health and lifestyle factors, such as smoking, sun exposure, iron deficiency, oiliness and exfoliation, all of which could speed up the fading process. On average, Lip Blush fades away within 2-3 years, with most people wanting a touch up every 12-18 months, depending on how bold you want your lips to look.
Undertones go beyond the general colour of your skin. They're seperated into three categories; warm, cool and neutral.
Warm undertones tend to lean towards peachy, yellow or golden tones; cool undertones means your skin has hints of pink, red or blue; while neutral is a mixture of these colours.
When choosing your lip pigment it is important that we consider which skin tone you have to pick the perfect colour for you.
