What is Lip Blushing? Say Goodbye to Expensive Botox | Celebrity Ink™

If the thought of botox to enhance your lips has you pouting, then turn that frown upside down!

Lip blushing is the latest cosmetic tattooing technique offering women (and men) the chance to have a fuller lip and enhanced colour.  The results last a lot longer than botox or any other fillers due to incredible advances in technology. You can wake up and walk out without applying a hint of makeup. Such a timesaver and no plastic surgery in sight!

What is Lip Blushing?

Lip blushing is a very natural looking semi-permanent tattoo makeup which uses natural pigments as a cosmetic tattoo.

It's designed to boost the colour and shape of your lips, giving you a fuller look. Natural shades, often two to three times darker than your own natural, are used to your requested colour and applied with a cosmetic tattoo machine. It delivers an enhanced version of your lips in shape, colour and size. By deepening the colour of your lips, you can create a fuller healthier look.  Using unique shading and a pixelating technique, you can customise the colour to match your own.

How to choose your shade

Did you know that most people’s lip colour fades over time through age, sun damage and from chemicals?

Lip Blushing can reverse that (hellooo anti-ageing!) and bring out the natural colour of your lips or you can opt for a new shade. A light coloured tint is best used for that subtle, plumped and pouty effect. Think of your existing lip colour and then go a shade or two deeper. 

Does Lip Blushing hurt and how long does it last?

A numbing cream is applied so you’ll only feel a light sensation as the pigment is applied, so don’t worry about pain.

Like most semi-permanent makeup it will last up to two years and then you will need to re-apply. Much of its success depends on the individual and how many shades darker you want to go as to how long it will last. 

How long does it take?

Generally speaking, the procedure takes about an hour and a half - enough time to book an extended lunch hour for your new luscious lips!

Sometimes a second touch-up visit is required 6 to 8 weeks later. Whether you want to save time applying makeup, or you’re looking to enhance your natural beauty, lip blushing is a great choice over chemical-laden fillers.

It’s important to choose a professional from an industry who has performed this tattooing technique for many years, and our artists at Celebrity Ink™ artists are more than qualified and ready to help you achieve your lip blushing look.
