WHAT IS LIP BLUSHING? 

Lip blushing is a subtle lip tattoo that uses natural shades of pigment to enhance the beauty of your lips. The purpose of lip blushing is to:

  • Boost your natural lip color

  • Improve or correct the shape

  • Add definition to lip borders

  • Create the illusion of fullness

DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT -

During your appointment we will go over all of the steps with you including an in depth consultation, shaping, outlining/drawing in of your lips, color selection, pre numbing and the actual lip blushing procedure. The pre lip draw allows you to feel 100% confident with your results. You will be given an aftercare kit to take home and instructions to follow precisely. Ensure you read all pre-care and preparation before booking your appointment.

LIP POST PROCEDURE:

You will wash lips before bed with luke warm water and unscented soap or cleanser. Apply the aftercare that is given to you by Thirdeye Studio in a thin layer after cleaning. Make sure hands are clean before you touch your lips and wash them. Repeat in the morning. You will continue this for 5 days minimum. Please remember this is a new tattoo and should be cared for like an open wound. Do not over saturate with healing balm and do not let the lips get too dried out either. See below list for more details of the do’s and dont’s during healing.

WHAT TO AVOID AFTER THE HEALING PROCESS:

 

No application of any lip makeup for 1 week other than the healing balm that is given to you.

No scratching, picking or licking of dry skin or flakiness.

No super spicy foods during the first 24 hours.

No foreign body fluids in or around the lips for 5 days.

No activities that will cause extreme sweating for 5 days.

No swimming pools, hot tubs or other bodies of water for 5 days.

No uv exposure (including tanning booths) for 5 days.

No laser light therapy, as it can darken/lighten or distort the pigment of the lip color.

No exfoliants, retinol acids, glycolic acids and alpha hydroxy acids on the area for 30 days after the appointment (causes premature fading).

No massages, facials or skin treatments for 5 days.

 

 

AFTER YOU’VE HEALED:

Lip tattoos normally last 2-3 years depending on lifestyle, skin type and aftercare.

FAQ

Because your lips will be numbed with a topical cream (before), and also during , you likely wont feel more than some compare to light scratches, small pinches or a strong lip scrub. Following all the Pre-Care is important as well.

 

 

What can I expect AFTER Lip Blushing Treatment?

 You may see,

 

  • Swelling

  • Flaking

  • Peeling

  • Dryness

  • Strong pigmentation (a bolder color than you were expecting)

 

 

How long does Lip Blushing last?

 

Typically 2-3 years and will gradually lighten and fade over time, until your lips return to their natural hue.
