Permanent Makeup for Lips

What are the Benefits of Permanent Makeup for Lips?

Imagine not having to reapply your lipstick every 15 minutes. With age, our naturally defined lip lines and our lip color tend to fade. The cure? Permanent Makeup For LIps!

Permanent makeup for lips enhances lips with natural shades, and gives lip lines more definition. It can also be used to re-tint and reshape lips so that they appear fuller or more colorful.


How do I Know What Color to Choose for My Lips?

Remember that lipstick still covers whatever is tattooed on your lips, but as it wears off, you will still hold a natural color. Most clients want to simply re-establish a lip line without having to re-apply lip liner all day.

Lip shading is a technique that does this naturally without a distinct line around the lips. Some clients choose very natural lip colors or “lip highlighting” or “sparkling” techniques that make the lips look fuller.

What are the advantages of permanent eyeliner?


Permanent Eyeliner Never Smudges

If you have ever glanced into a mirror halfway through your work day and noticed that your eyeliner has smudged into the “laugh lines” around your eyes, then you are a good candidate for permanent eyeliner. Whether you are working out, swimming, or just sweating from the summer heat, the biggest advantage of permanent (tattooed) eyeliner is that you look great all the time, even when you wake up in the morning. No smudging, no crooked lines applied at a stop light—just beauty all the time.


Permanent Eyeliner Gives You the Perfect Shape for Your Eyes

Applied by a true permanent makeup artist, permanent eyeliner can enhance and balance the natural shape of your eyes. In expert hands, permanent eyeliner will accent your natural–and best–facial features. The thickness of the line is dictated by the shape of the eye and a client’s personal preference. Not all eyes can handle a thick line. If you prefer a more glamorous look, a properly shaped wedge with a bolder line creates a stunning effect.

Does permanent eyeliner application hurt?

Because the eyelids are thinner areas of the skin, they numb easily. You will feel the odd sensation of the machine moving around your eye, but it is not painful.

Is permanent eyeliner always black?

Like permanently tattooed eyebrows, permanent eyeliner can be black, brown, or a mix of multiple shades for a very natural look. Colors are custom mixed for each client’s preference and skin tone

Can bad permanent eyeliner be removed?

When a poorly done permanent eyeliner tattoo (one dropped below the last line) exists, it can NOT be removed by laser tattoo removal procedures. Fortunately, a breakthrough non-laser tattoo removal technique that is safe and effective, makes correcting a bad permanent eyeliner tattoo now possible!

What is permanent eyeliner lash enhancement?

Lash enhancement is great for people who are either not used to wearing make-up or want a totally natural look. Because lashes grow in a field rather than a straight line, small dots of pigment can be implanted between the eyelashes to make lashes look instantly thicker and fuller.

Just as in permanent brow applications, permanent lash enhancement tattooing can be done using browns, blacks, multiple colors, or muted tones. The goal is lash enhancement without a noticeable line.


Eyebrows are a signal of your emotions and comprise at least one-third of your facial expression. Think about the Smiley Face. Now imagine shifting its eyebrows downward or straight across. Your eyebrows convey your emotions to others. Properly shaped permanent eyebrows can also take years off your age!

I first met with Pam after someone else had done a really poor job of tattooing my eyebrows, which I was trying to cover up with makeup. Not only was she able to correct the awful look I was stuck with, but I had a whole new, more youthful look to my face.

That change gave me more confidence in my step and in meeting people face-to-face. Because of Pam’s talent, I have gone back and had her do my eyeliner and lips. It’s truly wonderful to wake up in the morning, look in the mirror and say, “Wow, I look great!” because my makeup is already on.

Will My Eyebrow Shape Look Natural?

Absolutely! The shape of a person’s eyebrow is determined by their natural bone structure, but should also reflect their personal preference. Great brows are about proportion. “I first draw a brow on one side of the clients face,” says Neighbors, “so I can compare how a correctly shaped brow will accent and give lift to the other features.

The impact is astounding. You really need to find a permanent eyebrow technician who has an art background, so that they understand how to balance the human form – and face.”

Pam’s additional background in both art and anatomy allows her to create individually balanced permanent eyebrow results for every client.

Will I Need to Shave My Eyebrows Off?

Absolutely not! Once you have the reconfigured eyebrow, we want to leave any hair within the tattoo there and anything else can be plucked, waxed, or removed with electrolysis. You never have to worry about the shape changing and any natural hairs—even if there are only three or four—will add to the light dimension and texture while blending with the natural stroke eyebrow tattooing technique.

Will Eyebrow Tattooing Hurt?

With the advanced topical numbing gels administered at Trillium Ink, this is not a painful procedure.

The new non-laser tattoo removal process offered at Trillium Ink can remove the previous ink from the skin and you can re-tattoo natural, expertly shaped eyebrows. Many times only a partial line removal is necessary.
