How Does Lip Blushing Work?

To apply lip blush, an Permanent Make-up Artist deposits small dots of pigment in the lips using a mechanical needle. This is typically done in layers with different configurations, so the result looks natural and even.

How To Prepare For Lip Blushing

If you go in for a lip blushing treatment, your Permanent Make-up Artist will work with you to decide on the right lip tint shade and shape. Since this is a semi-permanent procedure, you may want to avoid seasonal trends and instead focus on what looks best on your skin tone.


Arys Brows suggests you try on a range of neutral lipstick colors, before scheduling a treatment. You can bring in a color you love and ask the Permanent Make-up Artist to match it. You can also bring reference photos to share your desired color and shape.
