THE COMMITMENT: LOW. When properly-done lips fade, they basically just go back to normal. So if you decide not to keep up with colorboosts, it’s totally okay. You don’t have to worry about it looking funny in any way if you stop refreshing the color.
THE EXPERIENCE: Lips are no more uncomfortable to have done than ombré brows, and take about the same amount of time. Yes the tissue is thinner, but we’re working way closer to the surface for that reason. And as always, topical numbing gel is used throughout the appointment.
THE RESULT: Perfectly blushed lips with more life and definition than before. The healed color will be about halfway between your natural color, and the pigment we choose. For this reason, every client heals to their own unique shade. We don’t work outside the natural lipline, to avoid that “koolaid mouth” look once healed, and we don’t attempt an opaque lipstick look. Sheer, blush-y lips are where it’s at if you want wearable results that age gracefully.
