What is Lip Blush?

Lip blushing is the most natural form of semi-permanent lip tattooing… 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. This treatment delivers very natural results, once healed. Filler is great for creating volume in your lips, but lip blush delivers a more natural look and give the illusion of fuller lips.

Traditional permanent makeup uses a strong machine, synthetic pigments, and is embedded deep in the dermis. The permanent makeup of today is very different -the results are much more natural looking. Lips look more of a stained appearance rather than a solid block of colour. Intensity can be built up based on the desired outcome of each individual client.

Book Early to Avoid Disappointment

Limited Appointments Remain

Results will always vary from person to person, after your initial session and the touch up, your results should last between 2-5 years. Additional touch ups may be required depending on the person and look desired. Permanent makeup ink is not the same as body art ink, and by design it does not last as long as body art ink.
Lip blushing can last several years, although your lifestyle contributes to how well it maintains; smoking and sun exposure can speed up the fading process, and if you’re oil-prone, have an iron deficiency or use a lot of exfoliating products in your skin regimen, the pigment could fade more quickly, too.
A tattoo on the lips sounds painful—especially for someone who might be looking for an alternative to getting injected with filler. Most of our clients say there say there’s little to no discomfort. Where as others describe pain being a 3 out of 10; with 10 being the highest pain. We numb the lips prior to the service. If you’re worried about your pain tolerance, a pain reliever like Tylenol can be taken prior to the appointment; should avoid aspirin and ibuprofen, though, since they can thin the blood and cause more sensitivity.

  • Aspirin
  • Ibuprofen
  • Fish oil
  • Vitamin E.

  1. First, there’s pout prep. A topical anaesthetic is applied to pre-numb the lips for 20 minutes. Afterwards, your technician will draw the shape of the “new” lips so that you can evaluate and make any changes.
  2. Once the numbing cream is removed we start the shaping process. When shaping we generally, love to make the cupid’s bow a little more pronounced and add fullness to the sides of the lips, as sometimes the natural colour is lost in those areas. Once the client is happy with the shape, we begin the actual tattooing, procedure.
  3. The procedure takes place over the course of an hour to an hour and a half, if not longer, depending on the look you’re going for. Once the appointment is completed, your lips may be swollen—it is a tattoo, after all—so you can ice them if necessary. Over the next week, your lips will start to heal, meaning they may scab, so it’s important to time this carefully around your schedule.
  4. Aftercare cream is applied to lips for the next 3-5 days.
  5. For the first 24 hours, we advise our clients to gently blot their lips with a wet cotton pad and let them air dry. This is to keep the lips clean and remove any body fluids that have surfaced and prevent the fluids from forming scabs.

When it comes to scabs, it’s important that they fall off naturally—picking them can result in scarring or loss of pigment in those areas.

We suggests avoiding workouts and sun exposure for two weeks (a great excuse to avoid the gym if we do say so ourselves) and if you plan on getting injections, wait a full month. Sleeping on your face could also cause the scabs to fall off prematurely. Avoiding spicy food, citrus and hot drinks for the next 3 days. An occlusive ointment like Stratamed or Bepanthen should be worn to keep the lips properly moisturized.
Initially, the colour will be super vibrant, almost like a lip stain. It is important not to be misled by the immediate ‘after’ results. The immediate results look nothing like when the lips are healed. Once healed, the colour fades approximately 30-50 percent and also blends in with the natural lip colour,
There is no down time but it is suggested to time this accurately around your social calendar as there may be some scabbing present after the initial treatment. Scabbing typically lasts five to seven days, and after four weeks, the lips should be fully healed to completion.
A touch up is not mandatory for every visit but we do request that all new clients come back for a 2nd session initially to ensure they are happy with their results.
We will book in a follow up appointment for you in touch-up appointment six weeks to ensure we give our clients the best results.
During this touch up session we are able to alter shape of the blush, or fill in areas that may have rejected pigment.
