What Is Lip Blushing?

Perfectly pigmented lips no longer require regularly applying your favorite lipstick. Luscious lips have been one of the defining beauty trends of the 21st century. While filler injections took center stage over the past decade, lip blushing offers a more natural-looking alternative to the cosmetic treatment craze, with less maintenance. Lip blushing, also known as lip tattooing, is a semi-permanent makeup treatment that involves implanting pigment into the top layer of the skin with a sterile single point needle. Thanks to modern-day advancements, this procedure offers a subtle wash of color compared to older, traditional methods using tattoo ink to saturate the lips. This technique takes an estimated two and a half hours due to the fact that the experts at the Altra Beauty lab are very precise and meticulous about their work.

Lip blushing offers both corrective and enhancement benefits. It may also even out the pigments and symmetry of your lips and create a slightly fuller appearance. These results can reduce signs of scars or aging in the area. While you can still wear lipstick or gloss over your lip treatment, this semi-permanent color saves you time for everyday activities. “Smudge proof, kiss proof lips that will make you smile with confidence”
