Our lips reflect how we age and how we live.  We lose the natural lip-line sometimes quite early, in our 20’s or 30’s which seems unfair.  A little later in life we gain creases around the mouth, even when we have never picked up a cigarette, that’s definitely unfair!  All is well though as at Gentle Cosmetic Tattoo we particularly enjoy recreating the lip-line in soft pinky browns, baby pinks and other shades that don’t bleed but enhance the mouth and look natural on the skin.  These colours don’t wash away and last and last changing awkward shapes or giving more fullness without an artificial ‘bow’ on the top lip.  If you wish a very gentle lip-line with full lip colour, full lip cosmetic tattoo may be the answer.  If you have plenty of lip colour already,  lip-line cosmetic tattoo may be all that is necessary.

We recreate lips rather than give a lipsticked look, however a slick of lip gloss does wonders.

I cosmetically tattooed my own lips and it was one of the best things I did for myself, (other than  eye-liner and brow tattoo makeup).  When I go out there’s always some colour on, that goes with the clothing but when it all comes off, guess what?  It doesn’t matter one bit!

Just a point to remember.   Try not to sweep your new makeup tattoo with foundation or powder.  The beauty of semi-permanent makeup is just that -not having to apply anything over your cosmetic tattoo.  Many of you are so used to covering your face with traditional makeup so it’s easy to forget now that you don’t have to worry.  Let the naturalness and tattooed brow strokes show through!

May is nearly here and the weather is getting crisp!  Fantastic, for someone brought up in New Zealand!

Have a wonderful month of May with new makeup tattoo!

Before I go on – Happy New Year everyone! 2012 has already shown promise of great changes and forging ahead in positive ways.

Now, one of the most beautiful looks around this year and last, is soft natural tattoo colour for the mouth. This understated cosmetic lip tattoo suits women in different ways and Gentle Cosmetic Tattoo take time to custom-make the result for each and every woman. For example, some ladies come in a say, “are your’s tattooed?  I want that colour ” pointing to my own  lip tattoo makeup. Indeed, this is  near impossible to achieve most times as the constitution of the lip tissue is variable and much depends on how colour will finally result in the skin. I always tell my client this. In these cases we work on a beautiful subtle look that is individual to her.

Here, we are not talking about pastels or similar. Here we are talking about the natural, tranlucent colours that are not a give-away to something other than your own skin possiblities.  You finally have a beautiful, gentle, but deliberate  cosmetic tattooed look that encourages you to walk straight off to a dinner date after a lick of moisturiser or gloss and look fantastic. You look great all year round, any time and anywhere!

Let’s take the scenario of waking up in a tent  in the countryside or if you prefer, in a plush hotel far away. You feel great and your skin looks fresh and pretty, and obviously the natural healthy colour in your skin is apparent. When this is not easily achieved  possibly because of age, condition of skin or health for that matter, cosmetically enhanced lips can majorly help. I am not saying, you need not take care of yourself, that cosmetic tattoo modification is the whole answer, because once again the condition of your health on day to day basis can and will alter cosmetic tattoo colour. However, makeup tattoo, and especially on the mouth, will colour enhance and shape your lips in much more than a satisfying way. When you know you have taken measures to improve in many cases, what you were born with you may feel more relaxed in company, and a lot more confident, with the least preparation.

Wishing you a glorious New Year!
