Everything You Need To Know About Lip Blushing

Wave goodbye to lip fillers and say hello to the world of lip blushing.

Thanks to viral social media trends and celebrities like Kylie Jenner, we’re all on a mission to achieve perfectly plump lips. Lips have become the focal point in our makeup routine, defining our idea of beauty. The world of cosmetics is always changing, with new and innovative procedures jumping onto the market.

Lip blushing is the latest in semi-permanent makeup and is the perfect alternative to lip fillers. You can change the shape and color of your lips without having to rely on expensive injections. If you overdraw your lips or use a liner to define your cupid’s bow, then lip blushing is a procedure that you’ll want to look into. With lip blushing, you can wake up every morning with perfectly shaped lips.

At Beauty Babe Club, we offer lip blushing services at our studio in San Diego. We’re going to tell you everything you need about this procedure and why you’ll be wanting to give lip blushing a try.

What is Lip Blushing?

When you hear ‘blushing’, the first thing that jumps to your mind is probably blusher or the color your cheeks go when you’re feeling a little embarrassed. Lip blushing is a semi-permanent makeup procedure that uses tiny needles to place pigments across your lips. We call this process ‘pixelating’. We layer the colour in such a way as to make it look as natural as your lip color. With lip blushing, you’ll look like you are blessed with the lips of a supermodel. The pigment is used to line your lips, creating shading to make them appear fuller while the pixelating gives you a fresh coat of color.

You might have heard of lip blushing as being referred to as tattooing, as while it’s a similar process it’s cosmetic rather than permanent.

You can use lip blushing to alter the color and shape to make your lips appear younger and fuller. If you have thinner lips or rely on applying lipstick throughout the day, then lip blushing is the perfect procedure for you. Lip blushing can help add symmetry and definition to your lips, all while making it look like you were born with perfect lips. While lip fillers can look artificial, lip blushing is one of the most natural-looking procedures that you can try.

Lip blushing is the key to EFFORTLESS BEAUTY. It’s the perfect solution for the busy woman who loves a natural look and who doesn’t have the time in the morning to sit down to apply a full face of makeup. If you travel or a busy mom, then you’ll want to give this treatment a go. Lip blushing is an ideal solution for men who want to improve their lip shape and treat any uneven toning.

One benefit of lip blushing is that you don’t have to worry about applying lip products every day. It can speed up your makeup routine and save you time in the morning. You can choose to keep your lips natural or add a lip balm on top for a little extra gloss. If you ever want to change it up, you can apply any of your lip products as you typically would.

At Beauty Babe Club, we can work with you to create a custom color for your lip blushing treatment. We can take your go-to lipstick shade and recreate it so that you always have it on. You use lip blushing to define your cupid’s bow, create fuller-looking lips, and add color. If you’ve ever felt self-conscious about the shape of your lips, we make them look symmetrical and even.


The Lip Blushing Process

If you’re ready to jump into the world of lip blushing, you might wonder how the procedure works.

When you arrive at our permanent makeup studio in San Diego, you can show us your inspiration photos. It’s always best to come along with an idea of what lip colour and shape you’re looking for. We can help provide advice about what would work best for your lip and face shape. You can bring along reference photos if you have an idea in mind.

We’ll start the procedure by making you comfortable as lip blushing can take over an hour depending on the shape you’re going for. We’ll numb your lips so that you don’t feel the pressure of the tiny needles across your lips. The numbing process takes around 30 minutes, so you can sit back and relax. As the numbing agent is taking effect, we’ll sketch out the shape and colour of your lips so that you can imagine what the finished product will look like. You can use it as an opportunity to ask any questions and make any last-minute alterations to the proposed sketch.

Once you’re ready, we’ll power up the applicator and start applying your chosen pigment into your lip using the tiny needles. This process involves layering the pigment to make your lips look as natural as possible.

The purpose of lip blushing is to make it look as though you never had the treatment. The changes are subtle, so you’ll want to choose a color that isn’t more than a few shades away from your natural color.

What You Need to Know Before Your Treatment

Lip blushing is a relatively pain-free procedure. If you’ve ever had your eyebrows microbladed, then you expect the pain of lip blushing to be less than that. As we use a numbing agent, you likely won’t feel a thing during the application process. If you have a lower pain threshold and think you might experience some discomfort, then you can take acetaminophen – also known as Tylenol – before your appointment. You’ll want to avoid taking any other kind of pain relief as this can lead to bruising. Another thing to avoid before your treatment is vitamin E, fish oil, and alcohol as this can cause bleeding.

Technically lip blushing is a semi-permanent procedure, but it’s got an impressive lifespan. If you fall in love with your new lips, you’ll want to come back every two to three years for a maintenance appointment. If you’re a smoker or are lucky to live in the sun, you may need to come in a little earlier as this can make the pigment fade prematurely. Oily skin can also result in the pigment decaying slightly quicker. If you’re familiar with microblading, then you can expect a similar time frame with your lip blushing.

Just like any procedure that uses needles, there’s a little aftercare involved. You might experience swelling and redness around your lips, which you can relieve with an ice pack. Keep at least one tub of lip balm or coconut oil on hand during the first week after your treatment to help keep your lips feeling moisturized and to prevent them from becoming chapped.

Letting your lips air-dry is the best way of allowing them to heal. If you’re looking to invest in lip blushing before a special occasion or vacation, make sure to book your appointment for a few weeks in advance.

Lip blushing is similar to tattooing, which is why you will see scabbing around a week after your treatment. It’s a small price for the results, and you can expect this to go away within a few days. Whatever you do, resist the temptation to pick at the scabbing. Allow the scabs to fall off naturally to prevent any scarring. You should look after your freshly treated lips the same way you would deal with a sunburn. Stay away from the sun and avoid sweating. You can use your lip blushing as an excuse to cancel your workouts for a few weeks.

All good things are worth the wait. In the first few days after your treatment, the color of your lips might seem darker than you thought they would. Your lips will typically look as though you’ve just applied a liquid lipstick. Once the scabbing heals, the final color will set in, which will be lighter than the initial color you see post-treatment. The excess color naturally falls off with the scabbing.

You can expect to see your defined and full-looking lips at their optimum color around four weeks after your treatment. If you want any alternations made to the color, you can come back and visit us for another lip-blushing appointment in San Diego. Plan for a touch-up 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment is always a great idea, as it’s an opportunity to perfect the overall look.

How Lip Blushing Became the Newest Trend

The current makeup trends all revolve around the lips. Plump and glossy lips are all over our social media feeds. This trend isn’t entirely new and has been growing in recent years. Kylie Jenner monopolized on her famous lips to release her makeup brand, focusing on lip products. Social media has been full of viral challenges involving making your lips seem bigger. Long-lasting lip colors are everywhere in the beauty aisles of our favorite stores. Whether it’s lip liners, lip plumpers, or liquid lipsticks, it’s clear that we’re all looking to give our lips a little extra shape.

For years, we thought the only way to get supermodel's lips was to go with lip fillers. While this process is popular, with over a million posts on its Instagram hashtag, it’s not an affordable option for everyone. Lip blushing is an ideal alternative that allows anyone to alter the shape and color of their lips. While lip filler can give you the volume you’re looking for, it’s usually easy to tell when someone has opted for the injection treatment. Lip blushing can give you the same results with a natural look.

Lip blushing is part of the permanent makeup trend in San Diego. Although permanent makeup has been around for decades, it’s recently broken into the mainstream. When permanent makeup first started, it used synthetic pigments with heavier machines. Lip blushing has evolved to use organic, natural-looking pigments and the latest innovative technology. You get better results with lip blushing and without the nasty consequences of lip fillers.

Over the next few months and years, you can expect lip blushing to be all over your social media feeds. We expect it to become as popular as eyelash extensions and eyebrow microblading.

If you’re looking for inspiration for your new lip shape and color, social media is the ultimate source of inspiration. Look for celebrities and influencers with a similar face shape as you, so you can get an idea of what might work for you. Make sure that you chose a color that you’ll be happy to wear every day. If you’re not sure what you want, then try experimenting with a few lipsticks beforehand. Take a look at the lip products that you have in your collection. See if there are any dominate colors. For the most natural look, choose a colour that is two or three shades lighter or darker.
