Lip blush comes in so many varieties that women (and men!) can recreate their favourite lip makeup look in a permanent version that will last up to 2-3 years. You may see fading results after a couple of years, depending on the type of skin you have. In the meantime, you can say goodbye to lip products except for maybe lip gloss and chapstick.
The trend for ombre lips has recently become one of the most popular lip PMU styles, so lip blushing can keep up with the latest trends in makeup.
Ombre in the makeup world means a gradual transition from intense and dark to sheer and light. How does this technique work on the lips? Stunning examples of ombre lip tattoos are below to inspire you! Let’s learn how to do it!
WHAT ARE OMBRE LIPS?
In ombre lips, the outer edges of the lips are coloured with a darker colour, while the rest of them are coloured lighter. This leaves the centre of the lips the lightest in tone. In reverse, the inner portion of the lips can be made darker and the outline lighter. Soft transitions and well-blended textures make the whole thing look really good.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF OMBRE LIP TATTOOS?
We all want fuller lips without fillers, so people love this look because it gives the illusion of fuller lips without fillers!
Famous MUAs popularized this look on Instagram (as they do with all of them), and the trend quickly spread.
It turns out, however, that creating flawless and tidy ombre lips takes some time. It’s important to use products with just the right consistency. This means not too matte so they can’t be blended, and not too runny so that they’re a challenge to apply with precision. Additionally, you need a wide variety of shades, which will cost you extra money.
The logical consequence – ombre lip tattoos!
PMU artists at Brows & Lips quickly perfected creating the ombre effect with the lip blushing technique.
One of the most fashionable permanent lip tattoo techniques, the ombré lip tattoo requires talent, skill, and inborn taste. We make the lips appear fuller, fuller, and more voluminous with the help of our artist at Brows & Lips. There are a wide variety of tones available, so you can create any image you desire, both naturally delicate and alluringly striking. However, it is up to the owner to decide what technique to use to make their lips appear attractive. Ombre lips are a harmonious combination of several shades, gently merging together.
HOW IS AN OMBRE LIP BLUSH PERFORMED?
Like a lip tattoo, ombre lip blushing involves making small ink dots on the lips and filling them with the pigment using a professional PMU device. A solid colour appears when these tiny pixels are drawn close together. A colour’s opaqueness increases as more pixels are added.
With ombre lips, you can get the same look you would get with regular makeup, more or less, when your artist adapts the pixel saturation to the ombre principle. Lip blushing with an ombre effect uses two or more shades of pigment, manipulating their opacity and saturation.
In both cases, lip blush and ombre lip blush give the lips the illusion of more volume, however ombre lips are a bit more dramatic.
CAN I GET OMBRÉ LIPS IN ANY COLOR I WANT?
If the shades you choose are compatible with each other, they will create a harmonious combination of lips that blend gently into each other. A member of our team will assist you in choosing the correct colour for your skin based on your preferences. This will enhance the sensual and attractive qualities of your lips.
For people with naturally pale lips, the most suitable option is to choose something more delicate and stick to a more natural colour palette rather than flesh-toned pinks or dramatic reds.
The ombre lip blush also integrates the natural rosiness of your lips, creating a look that doesn’t cover it up but rather highlights it.
THE LIP OMBRE ALSO CAN BE USED FOR IMPROVING SOME EXISTING DEFECTS ALONG WITH HIGHLIGHTING THE EXISTING SHAPE AND SHADE:
- An irregular, asymmetrical, or unimpressive shape of the lips, along with drooping corners and blurry lip liner;
- A defect in pigmentation, such as the presence of light spots or pathologically dark ones;
- A lack of natural volume;
- Scars, age spots, hyperpigmentation and other cosmetic imperfections in the mouth area.
WHAT IF I GET BORED OF THE OMBRE EFFECT?
It is not everyone’s cup of tea to wear lips with an ombre effect. It is possible to revert to a more natural look if you impulsively get an ombre lip tattoo and decide you no longer like it after a few months.
Let’s start with the simple step of booking a retouch session with us. To create a solid appearance and fill the lips evenly, we will apply colour throughout the area. A new look will be created, one that is more even and easy to wear, as well as a colour refresh.
Another option is to wait until your ombre lip blush fades, and wear lipstick over it until then.
Not all artists have equal experience performing ombre lip blush since this treatment isn’t a common treatment for most people. When it comes to ombre lips and PMU in general, the artists at Brows & Lips know exactly how to achieve it. Our goal is to enhance your look with permanent makeup, so make an investment in your face today.
