Lip Blush

Lip blush or 'lip jelly' naturally enhances the color of the lips, defines shape, and creates fullness to the lips. It softly defines your natural lip line and creates the illusion of a more symmetrical pout while adding a beautiful shade. Soft color & fullness in the lips can make your lips look healthier and you look younger.

LIP BLUSH / LIP JELLY

  • This technique deposits colored pigment into the lips with a state of the art digital device that regulates pigment placement, depth, and speed. It is aimed to be more sheer and natural rather than a 'lip stick' look.

  • ​Touch up is required to evaluate healed work, make adjustments, and finalize the shape and color.

THE PROCEDURE
