We all want to have gorgeous, youthful and healthy-looking lips. As we age, our lips tend to lose their natural colour and fullness as well as the defined border they one had. For this reason, many women are choosing to opt for permanent cosmetic makeup for their lips.
If you’re considering having permanent lip makeup and are currently exploring your options, you’ll no doubt be wondering which procedure is best for you, a lip liner tattoo or a full lip tattoo. Both of these options are useful if you have problems such as lip paleness, undefined lips, very thin lips, sun damage to your mouth area or even an allergy to lipstick. Let’s take a look at your options.
Lip liner tattoo
If you opt for a lip liner tattoo, you’ll find that it gives your lips more definition. The procedure also corrects uneven lips and will result in a fuller more youthful appearance. A liner tattoo also helps prevent your lipstick from bleeding as well as minimising the appearance of wrinkles. You can either choose a softly lined natural look or alternatively go for a more defined shade for a lip-liner effect.
Full lip colour
Having a full lip colour tattoo is perfect for you if you wish to enhance the shape and fullness of your mouth. It’s also useful for correcting asymmetries. You may wish to try this procedure if you’re older and have lost lip definition, colour or shape. If you love to look glamorous 24/7, this lip tattoo procedure can be carried out to look like a full lipstick application.
As with all cosmetic tattooing procedures, a lip tattoo will fade with time and will need maintenance to restore its vibrancy and to freshen up your colour. The fact that your tattoo won’t last forever is actually an advantage as lipstick fashions and even your personal tastes are subject to change over time. Therefore, you have the added bonus of being able to try a new look in the future!
