How To Get Luscious Lips With Permanent Makeup:
An Inside Look at Lip Tattooing with Eyebrow Ink Styling in Perth
Have you ever wished you could enjoy the look of your favourite lip colour 24/7, without the need to reapply? And wouldn’t it be magical if you could sip a cup of coffee, or kiss your loved ones without having to worry about smudging or colour transfer? What if you could wake up every morning with the perfect pout, looking refreshed and ready to take on the day?
If all of this sounds like a dream, we’ve got good news. Lip blushing might just be just the thing to make all of your wishes come true. Here’s how it works:
The Perks: What is lip blushing and what are the benefits?
Lip blushing is a form of permanent makeup, using semi-permanent tattoo techniques to achieve the effect of long lasting colour. This technique can be used to line the lips, infuse a natural-looking flush, or even apply bold colour, depending on your goals and desired look. It also works beautifully to correct concerns such as asymmetrical shape, or thin lips by adding definition and creating the illusion of full lips.
At Eyebrow Ink Styling, we love cosmetic tattooing for the lips as an option that is waterproof, sweatproof, and provides flawless coverage for months or even years. With lip tattooing, you can save yourself tons of time spent putting makeup on, skipping lip liner, and lipstick. Or you can still apply colour or gloss over your permanent makeup, to change up your look if desired.
The Process: What to Expect Step-by-Step
For cosmetic tattoos, many of our clients want to know what a typical appointment entails, so let’s walk through the process together, shall we?
Step One: Intake and Consultation
At Eyebrow Ink Styling in Perth, our cosmetic tattooists are permanent makeup specialists, intent on getting the very best results for our amazing clients. In order to do so, we will always spend time with you beforehand to determine your desired look, assess your existing shape, and discuss any contraindications – such as cold sores, or other recent lip procedures – to be sure that your procedure goes smoothly and safely.
Step Two: Shape and Colour Selection
One of the most important parts of any lip blushing or lip tattoo service is choosing the perfect shade and shape for your new lips. Options at Eyebrow Ink Styling range from soft pinks, and corals, to more dramatic reds, and burgundies, so we will take into account skin colour, undertones, your makeup style, and how much definition you would prefer, in order to map out and customise the final look.
Step Three: Procedure Prep
As trained professionals our Perth staff is well-attuned to making sure our clients are comfortable throughout any permanent makeup application. Because the lips are a rather sensitive area, a numbing cream applied to the lip area ensures that any discomfort or pain is minor.
Step Four: Pigment Application
Of course, the best part of any permanent makeup appointment is the part where instant transformation begins! Once your lips are perfectly prepped, your permanent makeup artist will begin applying colour. This is done by infusing pigment one microscopic dot at a time, to deposit it into the upper layers of skin. Depending on your desired shade, multiple passes may be required, and our artists are diligent about this step to ensure that the final outcome looks natural and all colour is evenly applied.
Step Five: Maintenance and Touch Ups
With a cosmetic lip or blush tattoo, multiple appointments may be required, just depending on your desired outcome. In most cases, we recommend coming back about 4-6 weeks following your initial appointment, so that we can check in on your results, and add additional pigment where needed. After the skin begins to heal from your first colouring, we like to fill in any hair gaps or places where colour has lifted, to secure the final look and create a longer lasting tattoo
The Healing Process: Our Aftercare Tips For Getting Best Results
With permanent cosmetics, a beauty secret we like to share with all of our clients is that homecare is key! At your appointment for a lip tattoo in Perth, your professional provider will go over all of the details with you, but some important things to note are as follows:
In the weeks after a lip blushing or lip tattoo service, it is normal to experience side effects of healing skin, such as itching, scabbing, or flaking. Never pick, scratch or pull at the skin, as this may interfere with the healing process and your final results.
You’ll need to avoid anything that may cause additional irritation for the lip area for about two weeks post-procedure. This includes eating spicy or acidic foods, excess sun exposure, excess sweating, exfoliation, or active skincare products. In the weeks following your lip tattoo appointment, using only gentle, hydrating and moisturising skincare products is recommended.
Protect your lips as much as possible during the healing period and beyond. Applying SPF daily is a must for preventing breakdown of pigment, so you will want to have a good chapstick or balm that includes sun protection in the formula.
