Lip blushing is the new permanent lipstick. It’s similar to permanent makeup
like microblading and tattooed eyeliner. It allows you to have consistently beautiful, kissable, flushed-looking lips without having to reapply any lipstick, balm, or gloss. While lipstick prices soar, and you constantly need to re-up, lip blushing or lip tinting
is a one-time fee that lasts for years. Save time and expect natural results with this easy procedure.

What Is Lip Blushing?
Lip blushing is a version of cosmetic tattooing that semi-permanently enhances your lips by applying deposited colored ink into the lips with a needle. As a result, you’ll get subtle and not over-saturated lip color. Thanks to recent technological advances in semipermanent makeup, you won’t be waking up with bright red lips on a Monday morning never to see a nude lip again.
Lip blushing is similar to certain tattoo techniques like whip-shading or pepper-shading. With a single needle and quick hand motion, the applicator will create a series of dots as the needle penetrates the skin. This technique differs from a solid line across the skin. The result is a flattering, natural-looking tint or stain that lasts up to three years.
After getting the lip tint or lip blush, feel free to apply lipstick and lip gloss to change up what you’re going for. But also, feel free to ditch the color all together. After all, your lips already will be full of it. Expect to feel more confident after lip blushing. Experiment more with eye makeup and your clothes as opposed to worrying about what lipstick to wear.
Benefits of Lip Blushing
Lip blushing is a great way to have beautiful, subtly flushed lips without the permanent commitment of traditional makeup tattooing. These perks include long-lasting lip color, increased pigmentation for aging lips, greater lip symmetry, no surgery needed, the ability to wear whatever lip shade you want, and scar and uneven pigmentation color correction.
Lip blushing is in high demand for women who want more control over their daily routine and time. Lip blushing is similar to brow technology and artistry, where the aim is not to overexaggerate one’s features but to enhance them. Any type of skin tone can acclimate well to lip blushing. When done correctly, by an experienced professional like at Biologi, lip tattooing works wonders. It’s important to take good care of your lips before and after the procedure, especially if your lips are rich in melanin.
What to Expect?
When you step into our spa, your aesthetic professional will customize your shade for your lips based on what you’re looking for and what you need. Each shade is made to match your skin tone and your desires. As a professional, they’ll work with you to find your perfect shade.
If you’re going for a more subtle, plumped look, then go for the “light tint”. These colors revolve around neutral pinks, mauves, nudes, and corals. If you have medium to dark skin tone with cooler undertones, our professional might neutralize your natural lip color with an applied pigment. If you’re going for a bolder look, you might need to minimize your goal. Lip blushing can enhance your color but it can’t reach those really dark shades you’re going for. Generally, expect your lips to be enhanced by one or two shades.
Once you select your customized color with your professional, they’ll most likely line your lip tattoo with liner or lipstick, so they can nail your desired shape. This is great for people who want to bring more shape to their lips that seem thinner or less plumped. Then, they’ll apply a numbing cream to your lips so you can feel relaxed and comfortable. Once the numbing cream starts working, your aesthetic professional will start the tattooing process using a mechanical gun. The sensation is equal to that of a light stippling sensation, otherwise known as dot making.
The procedure can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. Directly after the appointment, expect your lips to be much darker than they’ll appear in a few days, once they’re healed. The healed color will be almost 50% lighter than they initially appear.
You can of course get a touch-up about eight weeks post-procedure. If you’re looking to neutralize, lighten, or even out the lip tone, there may be multiple sessions in order.
