Choosing the right lip shade
Many women have dealt with finding the right color for their lips. Plus, the hassle of putting a lipstick on. Also, women tend to bite their lips and it causes for the lipstick to fade. Permanent makeup has been a solution for many. However, how will we know what color will fit for you?
Know your skin tone – In a natural lighting, check your skin tone to determine your real complexion.
√ Fair or Light Skin – light pink, coral, peach, nude, and dusty red colors
√ Medium – rose, berry, cherry red, and mauve lipstick
√ Tan – rock coral, deep pink, bright red except for brown and purple shades
√ Deep – brown and purple shades like plum, caramel, wine, and blue-based reds
Check your under skin tone – Those with cool undertones tend to have fairer skin, while those with warm undertones have a golden or olive hue. Neutral undertones have mixtures of warm and cool undertones.
“The perfect shade is the one that makes you feel the best. Even if it breaks all the color rules, you should always wear colors that make you happy,” says Le.
Important things before and during lip enhancement procedure and it’s recovery time
Avoid all platelet inhibitors such as aspirin, alcohol and NSAID’s (and anything that contains those ingredients) for 7-10 days before your procedure. Also eat pineapple during this time period. Make sure that your injector is very experienced in lip augmentation, and ask them to inject very slowly since the faster the injection, the more it hurts and the more chance of bruising. After the injections, do not “use” your lips for anything except eating…..and use ice packs at least 20 minutes per hour until the swelling goes down. Remember to sleep with your head elevated so that there is less chance of swelling in your lips overnight.
Every patient’s recovery time is different after any procedure. Typically, lip swelling after filler will significantly decrease after 2-3 days but for some patients it may last as long as 5-7 days. Any swelling or bruising should be completely gone by two weeks. We recommend that you increase your water in-take before and after injection.
Lip augmentation or lip enhancement can give you a boost in both self-esteem and self-confidence. The end result should be a balance within the face, allowing your eyes, cheeks, nose and lips to become harmonious. Augmenting the lips so they appear fuller and more luscious creates a healthier appearance and sensual appeal.
