If you're a beauty addict, you're probably well versed in the sheet mask game. But…
If you’ve decided lip blushing is for you, you should begin by trying different neutral lip shades to see what looks best, then take a sample with you to show the aesthetician before the procedure. “The color we use is really up to the individual. We discuss what they want beforehand, and I create a custom color for them,” Drummond explains, who Glamour says is the best there is.
Once you’re in the chair, a numbing cream will be applied to the treatment areas on and around your mouth. Refinery29 says the cream can be applied several times, leading to a nearly painless treatment; and because since your lips are porous, Glamour says the anesthetic is pretty effective.
The procedure is straightforward; Glamour reports that the method is called pixelating, where a device applies small dots of color to line and shade. But Elle also says that because the procedure, which takes about 90 minutes, is still a tattoo, you can expect swelling and scabbing for up to a week afterwards. And when the scabs come, it is important to have them fall off naturally. The lips should be fully healed in four weeks.
