Look yourself only BETTER!

Permanent lip liner is designed to enhance the lips not to create fullness. This procedure is meant to give the “illusion” of a fuller lip. Permanent lip liner and colour can improve the lips in both men and women. It helps to define without the need for surgery or fillers and can restore the colour to naturally paler lips. Permanent lip liner eliminates the need for use of pencils to outline, fill-in or reshape the outline. Permanent makeup, depending on colour choice, can aid in concealing or decrease some discolouration and/or imperfections. Lip tattooing helps correct and balance the symmetry of uneven lips, too thin, or even scars. Permanent lip colour decreases the need to reapply lipstick or gloss. It can also enhance the natural colour and shape of perfectly shaped lips.

A lip tattoo can reduce “lipstick bleed,” and give definition to the lip line. With a colored lip tattoo, lip scars disappear, plus you can kiss lipstick good-bye.

Permanent Lips
Lip Liner

Lip Liner

Outline the lip to create definition, camouflage slight imperfections. This technique when used alone can create a harsh unnatural lip outline.

Blended Lip Liner

Blended Lip Liner

Outline the lip to create definition and colour is blended halfway towards the centre to create softness.

This technique is for anyone who wants lips with a softer appearance. This lip is lined and then shades inwards slightly. This method is more attractive than lip liner on its own. Naturally, uneven lip outlines can be balanced with this procedure.

Full Lip Colour with Liner

Full lip colour with Liner

Lip border as well as implants colour inward throughout the entire fleshy part of the lip. Outline the lip to create definition and colour is blended towards the middle to completely fill in lips. This technique can be implemented in some cases to camouflage uneven lips size. Uneven lip borders can also be balanced with this procedure.

This method is used for anyone who wants the appearance of wearing lipstick or lip gloss with a defined lip line.

Before and After Pictures


What is the downtime after the permanent lip liner procedure?​2018-04-17T21:56:54+00:00

Following permanent lip procedure, the healing process may take approximately ten days. In most circumstances, the lips will look very dry and chapped as they heal. Initially, the colour is darker but as time passes the colour gets lighter as the skin continues to heal. You usually see the full, true colour after about two weeks.

How much does the permanent lip liner procedure cost?​2018-04-17T21:54:50+00:00

The cost of the procedure should not be the most important issue when consulting a potential permanent cosmetic artist. Most important is the training and skill of the person performing the procedure and the confidence of the client in that skill. As permanent make-up is so personal and expectations vary it’s always best to either contact us directly or schedule your FREE consultation. It would be our pleasure to sit down with you to discuss your individual transformation needs.

How long does the permanent lip liner procedure take?2018-04-17T21:53:52+00:00

Procedure length depends on the area. Generally, the initial procedure may take approximately 2+ depending upon the procedure area and if the use of topical anaesthetics is required.

Is permanent lip liner makeup procedures painful?2018-04-17T21:53:01+00:00

During the procedure, most people may experience some discomfort as the lips are especially more sensitive. As every client’s pain tolerance varies if you are on the more sensitive side topical anaesthetics may be used depending on the area of treatment. During our one-on-one personal consultation, we can discuss these methods with you to determine which one is appropriate. We do try our best at all times to make the procedure as comfortable as possible from beginning to end.

What is a permanent lip liner touch-up and is one necessary?2018-04-17T21:51:14+00:00

Often tattooed colour is not perfect after the initial procedure heals. Permanent cosmetic procedures are a process of at least one follow-up to the initial procedure. The minimum standard for follow-up detail is 6-8 weeks. Lips have a different healing time than procedures performed on other parts of the face due to their delicate nature. The timeframe for the healing of the lips varies upon the client’s overall health and age.

How long does the permanent lip liner pigment last?2018-04-17T21:48:51+00:00

Permanent makeup procedures last for many years. Pigment retention depends upon lifestyle, skin type, age, aftercare, sun exposure, use of certain skincare products, immune system, medications, etc. Aftercare is very important to ensure the best results possible. Periodical touch-ups may be required to freshen up colour and/or design.


After Your Permanent Lip Color Procedure

You lips will be temporarily swollen right after your procedure. They will be tender and may have some minor bruising in some places that will go away in a few days. Your lip color will definitely be brighter and darker than what you want. It will lighten a lot after your lips peel (about 3 to 6 days post procedure). The color will continue to soften and stabilize over the next few weeks. Your lips will appear brighter and slightly fuller than normal, due to swelling, during the first week of healing, so please keep this in mind when booking your procedure. You will be provided with detailed after care instructions to ensure the best results possible.

Follow-up and Maintenance Appointments

The lips will gradually lighten and the color will stabilize over the next few weeks following your procedure. Lip tissue is different from regular skin, so it loses the most color following an initial tattooing procedure. Generally, your lips will normally heal lighter than you desired, but they can be darkened during your touch-up procedure. A follow-up might be needed to adjust any slight concerns to areas that may have healed lighter due to swelling or bleeding during the process. Ideally, your touch-up should be completed between 6 to 8 weeks post procedure. Due to the fact that in some cases permanent makeup can fade over time, you can schedule maintenance visits every few years to keep your color looking bright and fresh.
