Semi-Permanent Lip Color

Bright red or vibrantly pink lips have always been a highly-coveted facial feature for ladies. However, even though applying lipstick is a vital part of any makeup routine, applying it every single day can become quite a chore. With all the wonderful permanent makeup advancements being made,  it is no wonder that semi-permanent lip coloring has continued to grow in popularity.

Semi-permanent lip coloring isn’t simply for the outer edges of your lips, nor are they meant to plump your lips, as injections do. Essentially what your cosmetic specialist does during lip color is outline the lips with color and then fill them in, with specific and circular brush strokes, in order to create a blended and shaded appearance. Not only does this play into the targeted natural appearance, but it also ensures a quicker and more comfortable recovery.

At Skin by Sarah, our artists are extensively trained in various techniques and styles, including specialty procedures for corrective purposes. From a natural, flirty blush to a statement-making color, we will utilize the right permanent lip technique that will suit your style.
