How to contour and blend using semi-permanent make-up

Q: How can semi-permanent make-up be used to improve the look of lips?

Semi-permanent make-up can be used in a variety of ways on the lips and liner is just the start. Improvements in needles and pigments mean that therapists can now do a complete contour of the lips using liner and all-over colour.

Semi-permanent lip blush can enhance the natural shape of the lips and give the illusion of plumpness. Combined with lip liner treatments, you can create a perfectly symmetrical shape with a beautiful cupid’s bow.

It can also make the lips appear more defined. By blending different pigments – with darker at the outer line, lighter inside the edge and almost no colour in the centre – the lips will immediately appear fuller and plumper.

Lip procedures can be used to create a natural look, using specialised techniques to blend the pigments and avoid a visible line or painted-on appearance.

For the best results, the final colour should be matched to the client’s skin tone so it looks completely natural – with the potential to go bolder after that if they prefer.
