Lip Blush and Lip Neutralizing are a form of permanent makeup used to create definition, enhance shape, boost color and make lips look naturally plump & flushed!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIP BLUSH AND LIP NEUTRALIZING?
Lip Blushing is a cosmetic tattoo that uses water-based inks to create the illusion of fuller lips by implanting color in areas that may be less pigmented naturally or have lost color as a result of fillers and/or aging. A digital machine is used to deposit tiny dots of color all over your lips and the result is a very natural, beautiful tint with no visible outline. Custom color is mixed for each and every client based on their skin color, undertones, and existing lip shade.
Lip Neutralizing is a specialized treatment series for people with darker lips with purple or blue undertones. The process is including 3 steps:
- We need to naturalize the lips to a natural and healthy look as much as possible
with orange or red pigment.
- We start to add the color of our choices and see how your body accepts the treatment.
- We adjust the color: more or less based on the final desired look.
WHY LIP BLUSH AND LIP NEUTRALIZING?
These treatments can enhance the beauty of natural lip color, correct asymmetry, and make lips look naturally plump & flushed! Using only organic pigments, we achieve a color that deepens the natural color of the lip, appearing fuller and richer in pigmentation. Custom color is mixed for each and every client based on their skin color, undertones, and existing lip shade, therefore, you can be sure to achieve the desired effect. Lip Blush and Lip Neutralizing can last for approximately 2-4 years, or longer with recommended refresh sessions every 18-24 months.
