Can you enhance your lips with permanent makeup? NO!

Dear clients, never ask your technician to make your lips bigger with permanent makeup! Dear masters, Do NOT offer to your clients to make their lips bigger with outlining their lips more then 0.5mm above of the vermilion line!


Like the rest of your skin, your lips have all three layers -- the difference is that the stratum corneum on your lips is far thinner than it is anywhere else on your body. Your lips also don't have any sebaceous glands, these glands keep your skin moisturized, but your lips are on their own. Their only source of moisture is your saliva, and that's why they can easily become dry and chapped.

The skin on your lips doesn't have any hair follicles either this is a characteristic it shares only with the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet. Whether you can see them or not, hair follicles cover every other area of your skin.

That is why your tattooed outlining lips (over vermilion line) will finally have blackheads and hair. So basically you will get hairy lips.


Another difference between your lips and the rest of your skin is that your lips don't have melanin, the pigment that makes you tan when you're exposed to the sun (exception is ethnic lips) . Melanin is your body's natural way of protecting your skin from ultraviolet rays, and because your lips don't have any, they're at a higher risk of getting sunburned. Because your lips can't protect themselves from sun damage, it's important to use a lip balm that contains sunscreen -- your lips can develop sunspots and skin cancer just like the rest of your skin.

Your lips' red or pink pigment comes from underlying blood vessels red-colored, blood-filled capillaries are close to the thin skin on your lips. The transition of the reddish-pink outline of your lips to the rest of the skin is called the vermillion border. That is why the faded color will always will look different on the skin and lips areas.

If the client outlines the lips higher than lip line let her keep doing what. Lipstick is glossy and reflect the light because the lipstick lays on the skin vs to tattooed ink that goes under the skin!
