I recently had a chance to speak with Melannie Miller AKA … Mae Mae Ink on Instagram @MarMaeInk about her side hustle business as a tattoo artist.
This beauty so intrigued me! A mom of twins and two more. She is not only gorgeous she is quite artistic in many ways.
So I simply had to have her on my blog as a guest interview. One of the hottest services in beauty right now is a service called “Lip Blushing”. Since I am mad about lipstick 💄 and painting 👄 pouts I had to chat about it with her. Let’s learn about it together!
Melannie is a professional tattoo artist and I had to know what exactly is Lip Blushing?
It is a type of semi-permanent cosmetic procedure achieved by depositing pigments in your lips using small needles. Basically your natural lip shade but enhanced.
Tell us about the process?
We will first establish the color match and once we have our color I will prep the skin by cleaning your lips and the surrounding skin gently then I will apply a numbing cream then put cotton swabs in between your lips and teeth to make the canvas more firm for the procedure then I will line your lips with a lip pencil to establish an even shape that goes with your natural shape then from there I will begin depositing your color match ink into your lips.
How does somebody prepare for the service before they see you? Or is no prep needed?
We ask that you use a safe lip scrub 3-4 days out of your appointment and once more before coming in to remove any dead or dry skin.
How long does it take for someone to get their lips blushed? Or are there several visits.
It takes up to 2 hours for the whole procedure to insure an even tone and shape. This procedure will last up to 2 years.
What is the healing time? How will someone look afterwards? Is there a bit of a down time?
Is it painful?
It takes about a week to heal and you will go through a few peeling stages which is complete normal, when you leave it will be a bit red and you shouldn’t feel much discomfort due to the numbing cream we apply before. There isn’t any down time we just ask you keep them moisturized at all times during the healing process and to avoid spicy foods or heavily seasoned foods for the first 24 hours.
Is it a unisex art & service? Yes it is! Anyone can come in for any of our permanent make up services provided.
