14 Apr Lip Blushing: The Process, Results, and Aftercare
Here’s what we love about lipstick: it comes in all sorts of pretty colors and it makes our lips look & feel amazing. But the problem with lipstick is that it doesn’t always stay put – they smear, they smudge, and if we’re not careful, they can end up all over our teeth.
And now with facemasks as part of our new normal, we’re constantly having to reapply our lipstick throughout the day, which can be a bit of a pain.
Enter lip blushing: a semi-permanent solution that will give you long-lasting color without the need for constant touch-ups. If you’re wondering what is lip blushing, how it works, and whether or not it’s safe – keep reading. We’ll fill you in on everything you need to know about this trendy new beauty service.
What Is Lip Blushing?
Lip blushing is a beauty treatment that gives your lips a natural, flushed look. The process involves using a semi-permanent pigment to add color to your lips, which can last anywhere from 12 to 24 months.
Essentially, lip blushing is like getting your lips tattooed – but don’t worry, it’s not as painful as it sounds. The pigment is applied using a very fine needle, and the process itself only takes less than two hours to complete.
Lip Blushing Basics: The Process, Results, and Aftercare
Now that you know a bit more about lip blushing, here are the basics on what to expect during and after your treatment.
The actual process of getting your lips blushed is pretty straightforward. The actual process of the application may vary, but here’s a general overview of what to expect when you get your lip blushing beauty service here at D&M Treatments:
#1: The permanent makeup artist will clean and prep your lips for treatment. This involves a gentle cleansing of the lips to remove any oils or residue so that the pigment can be applied evenly.
#2: After your lips are prepped, the artist will assist you in choosing a pigment color that’s perfect for you. This is one of the best things about lip blushing: you get to choose the perfect color for your complexion, whether you want a light pink or a deep berry.
#3: The artist will then apply a numbing cream to help reduce any discomfort you may feel during the treatment.
#4: The artist will then start applying the pigment using a very fine needle. The discomfort you may feel will vary according to your pain tolerance, but most people report feeling only a minor prickling sensation.
Once the treatment is completed, you’ll have beautiful, flushed lips that look natural and feel amazing. And the best part is that you won’t have to worry about touch-ups or constant reapplication – the color can last anywhere from 12 to 24 months.
Generally, this beauty service can last for several years with the right aftercare. Here are a few tips to help you prolong the results of your lip blushing treatment:
- Avoid using any lip products that contain harsh chemicals or exfoliants, as these can cause the pigment to fade.
- Be sure to use a lip balm or cream that contains SPF to protect your lips from the sun.
- Avoid picking or scratching at your lips, as this can cause the pigment to fade or bleed.
- Some dryness or flakiness is normal in the first few days after treatment, but you can use a lip balm to help soothe any discomfort.
In terms of beauty services, lip blushing is a relatively new treatment, but it’s quickly gaining in popularity due to its amazing results.
- Lip blushing can last up to several years with the right aftercare, and it’s a great alternative to traditional lipsticks or glosses.
- The process is minimally invasive and relatively painless.
- You get to choose the perfect color for your complexion.
- Downtime is minimal, and you can expect it to heal completely within four to five days after treatment.
- The results of lip blushing are meant to look natural, so you won’t have to worry about that “just had my lips done” look.
