I have name changed, as I am posting a photo of myself!

I am having semi-permanent lip colour done tomorrow. Can anyone with knowledge of the industry advise me what colour (and style!?) I should ask for?

I am not good with colours or tones. So am unsure of what to ask for. I have very pale lips (hence why I am having the treatment), and pink undertones on my skin. (Or so I have been told before)

Can’t advise on colour but I don’t think you have particularly pale lips? They look perfectly in line with what you’d expect from your skin tone

No industry knowledge whatsoever, but as someone who has quite dark lips I'd suggest not adding too much colour. While I like their natural colour they do rule out a lot of paler lipsticks! I can't do a nude for eg.

Assuming you're in the UK, how can you be getting this done?

You're very pretty though, OP!

I think I mean the outline is very pale and not defined 😀

@pinkart oh that is a good tip. It is good to have the option to wear nude lipstick!

I have no idea OP. But you're beautiful 😻

If she’s professional and done it a long time she should know what colour to do
I had my brows done and as soon as she saw my colour eyes she said I know what colour I’ll use
It will look great with your blue eyes

I’ve never even heard of it. Are you sure you need it?

Goldenoodle Mon 03-May-21 22:46:27

@dane8 that sounds like you went to a very good technician.
Even I had my brows done (years ago) she did them so dark. I felt like I had two slugs on my face for a year or so. So I'm a little nervous about the colour for my lips.

I think maybe a coral undertone than a pink red as I'm very pale. I really have no idea.

It's a Semi-permanent lip tattoo. Like eyebrow tattoos 😀
It will be very natural looking! I hope...

Ah, I see. I'm in Scotland and this still isn't allowed.

dane8 Mon 03-May-21 22:53:53

Yes she is she was taught by Karen Betts (look her up)

Omg if she did that to your brows I’d defo not be going back to her

You do know your lips are gonna be really big for about 3 days( good time now were wearing masks)

Following to see the after 💋

Ohh exciting, iv had mine done too! Same reason as you, lip line had no pigmentation at all. X

mrsjackrussell Mon 03-May-21 23:02:18

I had mine done recently and I took along a lipstick that really suits me and the practioner just made me a colour based on that shade. The rest of it I left up to her as she's very experienced and I trust her. I had eyebrows and eyeliner with her before and have those topped up regularly.

When does it wear off?

Ostara212 Tue 04-May-21 10:34:17

I didn't know this was a thing. I thought about the eyeliner but finding out it was like a tattoo put me off.

Is this the same procedure, will you have very sore lips?

Also, it seems like it would be really obvious you'd had this done, less obvious with eyeliner IYSWIM.

Here's an update!
It was absolutely fine!
She used plenty of numbing cream and she mixed the colour for me. It will heal as a subtle warm, pink colour.
It will fade 50% apparently and I asked for it to not be too opaque looking. So it should look like a natural lip colour once settled and not too 'done'.
(It should last 2-3 years to the person who asked)

I just booked this for myself! It is going to be so beautiful--and you are already stunning.

JMAngel1 Tue 04-May-21 17:47:43

Wow, it looks stunning - very natural.

WithLargeTableMouse Tue 04-May-21 18:53:14

Wow looks great, although you looked great already. Would this be suitable to add definition to your lip outline or even up asymmetrical lips too? The outline of my lips is just a bit of a blur these days.

Hey looking good, colour looks good so should be v nice when settled
come back and show us in 3 weeks please
