Lip blush is a permanent makeup technique designed to enhance the lips color, shape and symmetry while creating the appearance of fuller lips.
We can even redesign the outline of the lips, in order to create a more desirable look. 40 days after the procedure, touch-ups are performed, leaving you with full, gorgeous lips. Clients can come to one touch-up, or two, depending on how gradually they prefer to build the color.
During the procedure, topical anesthetics are applied to the lips to minimize any discomfort you may feel. After the procedure, sometimes slight puffiness will be apparent for the first twenty-four hours. The applied color is likely to appear approximately thirty percent darker immediately after its application, but will achieve its permanent color after a few weeks. During this interval, it’s normal for your lips to feel somewhat dry or chapped, so we strongly advise you to frequently apply moisturizing lip balm.
Neutralization is a permanent makeup technique designed for those with cool or dark-toned lips in which we color correct and neutralize the unevenness in color of the lips.
On the first session we will have to neutralize to cancel out the cool tones. This means the initial color we use MUST be in the orange range. When healed at 6 weeks, most if not all, of the darkness in your lips will be covered and your lips will have a more even tone. Note that results cannot be guaranteed and lightening or evening out dark lips may take a few sessions. Under no circumstances will we tattoo a “NUDE” color on dark or cool toned lips. If you are unsure if you have dark or cool toned lips you can send us a picture of your lips in natural light to confirm. Lady has perfected her own innovative, natural lip blush technique to create a beautiful lip tint on your pout while keeping pain and discomfort to a minimum. Color Correction may need more than one touch up to achieve the desired outcome.
Yes. The full lip permanent makeup yields the most natural results. At LADY BROWS MIA we like to preserve the natural look.

Antacids, thyroid and anxiety medications have been reported as interfering with permanent makeup either by affecting retention or shifting the pigment to an undesirable tone. Remember, everything we eat and drink have their own chemical structure and the electron ends that are unattached or free, may get attached to others compounds inside the body forming a new molecule that may show a different color spectrum. With that info, an educated client may have better expectation and know that she / he may need more frequent adjustments that others. The better condition your skin is in, the better the final result will be. Mature clients may need an additional one to two weeks healing for the final results to appear. The better you take care of your skin and protect it from UV rays, the better the outcome and lifespan of the permanent cosmetic procedures.
