Aquarelle Lips

Aquarelle Lips with Addictive Beauty

Our permanent makeup services at Addictive Beauty also includes aquarelle lips. Aquarelle lips are a lip blushing technique that enhances the beauty of the natural lip color, improving the shape of the lips, giving definition and the illusion of fullness. This treatment delivers very natural results, once healed. There are a range of shades to choose from and the treatment last 2 to 3 hours.


The results vary person to person. Generally, lip blushing can last several years, although your lifestyle contributes to how well it maintains; smoking and sun exposure can speed up the fading process, and if you’re oil-prone, have an iron deficiency or use a lot of exfoliating products in your skin regimen, the pigment could fade more quickly, too.


A tattoo on the lips sounds painful—especially for someone who might be looking for an alternative to getting injected with filler. Most clients rate it three or four out of ten, with ten being the most painful; clients say there’s little to no discomfort. If you’re worried about your pain tolerance, a pain reliever like Tylenol can be taken prior to the appointment; should avoid aspirin and ibuprofen, though, since they can thin the blood and cause more sensitivity. We also suggest avoiding fish oil and vitamin E.

If you have any skin or medical conditions, especially if it’s related to your lips, you should always inform the artist at your appointment. For instance, if you have a history of cold sores or herpes, the procedure could trigger an outbreak. Prescribed anti-viral medication should be taken in advance of the appointment, and it should be noted that cold sores can affect the healed results of the lip blush.
