By pixelating the pigment with a naming technique, light coverage and a lack of gloss, a soft blush appearance is created. It is common for people to experience swelling after the procedure. The amount of swelling depends on the sensitivity of your lips, but disappears completely in the first week. Immediately after the permanent lip makeup treatment, your lips will look very full and lively for the next two to three days. The feel may be similar to that of a light burn and minimal crust and / or peeling may occur. Remember to remove crusts / scales as you risk removing pigment during the process – it is very important to keep your lips very hydrated.
Lip designs are made with a wide range of pigments and cosmetic colors, to be combined with any shade of lip color. At Adorn Cosmetic we specialize in Lip Lining and Lip Blushing for our Bay Area customers. We asked New York-based cosmetic tattoo artist Savannah Kondratyev to give us an idea of what it really is like to make your lips blush and what you need to know if you are interested in a lip blush tattoo.
One of the last procedures artists and professionals use to improve and correct facial features is called lipstick, also known as lip blush tattoo. It is a natural looking cosmetic tattoo procedure that is offered in both tattoo studios and high-end spas. When you arrive for your lipstick service, the technician will ask you for your vision and the desired color. The technician first adds protection to your teeth and gums to prevent numbness and pigment from entering your mouth.
She took photos of her healing process; it was nothing like mine. She assured me that everything was normal, but that she would return for a refresh within six weeks. At the end of my date, I was so swollen on the right side of my upper lip that it seemed like I had a serious allergic reaction. The feeling of warmth and itching was different from any tattoo, lip injection or bee sting you’ve ever had.
The technique uses a small needle and works gently on the lips to implant the color very carefully without creating a too heavy edge / lip lining appearance. Colors are chosen for the desired results and skin tones of the customer, but my overall goal is to bring lips to life and a natural shade without being too dramatic. I like to use pigments with a light coverage and similarity. As we said, lip blush is a form of permanent makeup that will fade.
