Lipstick and Medical Mask? Semi-permanent makeup is the solution

Semi-permanent makeup can help you wear medical masks more confidently.

Wearing masks became an essential part of our daily life. We wear masks in public places and indoors to protect others from getting infected with COVID19 or other viruses. Some women report feeling uncomfortable wearing masks due to makeup application: lipsticks, lip gloss, foundation, powder, etc.

Semi-permanent makeup (SPMU) can help you feel more comfortable while trying to protect others by wearing medical masks. We all know how disappointing it is to apply lipstick and then wipe it away with our cover.

Benefits of Lip Tattoo while wearing a medical mask

The benefits of a lip tattoo go far beyond just keeping the lipstick intact. Other benefits are:

  • Saves you time from applying lipstick daily and even hourly basis;
  • Makes the lips look more defined, fresh, and sexy;
  • It’s long-lasting effect – with regular touch up it can last for many years;
  • Completely safe and 100% compatible with our lips;
  • It can look as natural as you want it to be;
  • It doesn’t wipe away no matter what you do with your lips – eating, drinking, kissing, biting your lips, talking, wearing a medical mask, smoking, etc.

What is a Lip Tattoo or a.k.a. Lip Blushing

Lip blushing is a technique of applying tattoo ink into the skin by using special equipment. The SPMU artist usually uses a particular gun, and the process is called micropigmentation. The chosen pigments can have different colors and can create other effects. When implemented into the demis, the pigments give color effects from the inside out.

Different SMPU techniques can help you achieve a wide range of lip tattoo effects – lipstick effect, lip gloss effect, natural pigment effect, lip color switch, and correction. Let’s see them all together.

Corrective Lip Tattoo

This is a particular type of SMPU lip technique. It can correct any unwanted dark coloring due to:

  • High melanin production;
  • Hyperpigmentation;
  • Sun damage;
  • Aging;
  • Uneven tan;
  • Disease side effect;
  • Smoking.

With this technique, the aim is to make the lip color look brighter and even. Correction with a lip tattoo is entirely possible, even for the darkest natural shades. It will require more sessions to achieve the color, but then it would last for years.

Types of SMPU techniques for lips

Gone are the days when lip tattoos were all about creating permanent lipstick effects. Now you can get a lip tattoo to boost your natural lip color, making it look 100% natural. Every single SMPU wish can be achieved, and your SMPU artist can adjust the colors for your needs.

Let’s see what you can do with a lip tattoo.

Aquarelle effect

Aquarelle is also known as a Watercolor tattoo. Think of it as more of a lip gloss effect rather than a lipstick effect. With this technique, there is no pain and no defined contouring of the lips. The aim is to get the lips to look natural but still with well-exposed color. The result is a soft, blurred color, pinkish or slight reddish effect.

With this technique, the SPMU artist makes soft transitions from shades with watery, transparent, and luminous colors without sharp edges. It’s suitable for women with light lip colors who want to boost their natural lip color without making it too aggressive and avoid the lipstick makeup effect.

Lips Naturelle effect

This type of technique has almost invisible results. The lip coloring is the same as your natural lips color. Why would you do it? Due to aging or sunlight, the lips become lighter and even whiter. This technique reverses any color damaging and gives you back the natural color of your lips.

After the procedure, no one would notice that you’ve done a lip tattoo.

Lipstick Effect

This is the traditional SPMU effect – it replaces your lipstick color, making it long-lasting. With this technique, the SPMU artist contours your lips with solid pigment and fills it until every mm of your lips gets colored. This technique is suitable for any woman who’d want to get rid of the chore of re-applying lipstick several times a day. Not to mention that your permanent lipstick won’t leave marks when drinking, eating, kissing, wearing masks, etc.

The lipstick effect can also be done with shades to achieve more volume and a more attractive color merge.

Lip Liner Effect

The name of the technique speaks clearly: it contours your lips with a suitable color. Due to aging, lips tend to lose their defined contouring. Many clients experience problems with blurred and fuzzy lip contours. This is why lip liner effects can make their lips more defined.

We always recommend more natural colors so they can merge with your natural lip color, but if you apply lipstick daily with a different shade of lip liner, you can choose a sharper lip contouring. It’s all about individual preferences.

Shades create the illusion of more volume. Lip contouring in combination with shading has erased lipstick – this makes the lips sexy, alluring, pumps, and more voluminous.

This technique makes lips look natural and sexy. It’s suitable for all ages and emphasizes outlining your lips.
