Lip Blush

Updated: Jul 10

Also known as lip tint, involves depositing pigment into the lips' outer layers to enhance their shape and colour. Lip blush mainly focuses on adding a soft flush of colour, mimicking the effect of a tinted lip balm or muted lipstick.

The Process

The procedure begins with a consultation where you discuss your concerns and goals. Your technician will assess your natural lips and decide how to properly execute a safe outcome for you. You will also discuss desired lip colour and lip shape. These initial steps are crucial as they will customize each that best complement you; it's important to know no two lips are the same.

The start of the tattooing, your technician will begin the first pass with their machine to delicately create 'channels' in the skin for your numbing agent to be applied and work within minutes; most technicians prefer not to use topical numbing creams as these can change the texture of the lips making it difficult to work on them, while they also make the lips stubborn and difficult to implant colour into. Following the first pass, they begin to layer the colour gradually to achieve the desired intensity. The entire process typically takes about 3-4 hours, depending on the experience of the artist and complexity of the treatment.

Benefits of Lip Blush Tattooing

  1. Natural-Looking Results: Unlike traditional lipsticks or glosses that wear off and smudge throughout the day, lip tattooing provides a long-lasting tint that enhances your lips' natural beauty.

  2. Time-Saving: Imagine waking up with a beautiful lip colour every day! Lip blush saves you precious time on your daily makeup routine.

  3. Enhanced Definition: It can define the shape of your lips, making them appear fuller (especially with an ombré tattoo) and more symmetrical.

  4. Boost in Confidence: Many clients report feeling more confident with subtly enhanced lips, whether at work, the gym, or going makeup-free.


After the procedure, it's essential to follow specific aftercare instructions provided by your technician. This typically involves keeping your lips clean and hydrated with a recommended balm, avoiding intense sun exposure, avoid spicy food and drinking with a straw, and refraining from picking at any dry skin that may occur during the healing process. It is known for the lips to heal fast, any visual healing has passed-over by day 5. Over the next few days following the procedure, the initial intensity of the colour will soften into a natural-looking, undetectable enhancement.

Everyone can benefit from having them done.
