Permanent makeup for lips

Permanent makup for lips allows you to have a permanently deeper colour and/or a permanent liner. The procedure can transform your lips by adding definition and volume.

It is possible to create a more youthful appearance by contouring your natural lip line. Whether you want to have a blush of colour or simply define your lip line with your natural lip colour, permanent make up for the lips can give you the perfect natural pout.

At Gemma Kennelly Permanent Makeup, Gemma is passionate and a perfectionist when it comes to creating the look you want, that enhances your features and matches your skin tone and hair colour.

Permanent lip procedures

Permanent lip contour and blush is an excellent way to enhance your natural lips, with it, a perfect symmetrical border can be achieved. You can enhance your lips’ natural colour or go for something more vibrant. Cosmetic tattooing is especially good when needing to add definition to lips.

As with all of my work, it is of the utmost importance to me that I deliver a first class service to all my clients. I am a perfectionist and so nothing but perfection will do. I use only the best quality pigments and up to date machinery sourced from USA and Germany.

Lip contouring liner

This technique mimics the effect you achieve when you use a lip liner pencil, adding shape and definition. Perfect for people who feel that their lips are too thin, are receeding, or just want to spend less time putting makeup on. When healed, you will enjoy a permanent, defined lip line that will never need re-applying or smudge. Your colour will be blended especially for you based on your skin tone and hair colour and whether you want a natural or bolder and brighter look.


Lip contour & blush

The ultimate lip treatment with amazing results. Have permanently defined and lucious lips with a permanent lip liner and blush procedure which adds definition, shape, and colour. Ideal for naturally receeding, pale or thin lips, or for those who want a permanently bold colour for extra pout.  The liner and blush can be the same colour or include a softer blush colour which is blended into the lip liner for a more natural look.


Permanent lip contour & blush procedure

– A step by step guide

1. Consultation

Before any procedure, it’s important to have a consultation with me so that we can discuss what’s involved and the look you want. I offer free, no-obligation consultations at clinics in Liverpool, Manchester and on the Wirral.

2. Analysis

I’ll perform a full skin tone analysis to determine what pigments to use to achieve your desired lip colour, taking your hair colour into consideration. Please see my pigments and colour theory pages for more information.

3. Preparation

I’ll use a guide colour pencil to draw on the desired shape, measuring symmetry and using calipers to perfect your measurements. I will ask you to confirm that everything is correct before we begin. A topical anaesthetic is applied to the area, to minimise any discomfort.

4. The procedure

The procedure takes between 60-90 minutes, as I carefully recontour your lips to create a beautiful, fuller lip. Depending on the desired effect once the lip line has been recontoured, a blush blend can be added to make your lips more voluminous. I will then check your lips for any final adjustments and apply aftercare.

5. Top up

You will need to have a top up appointment to check the shape and colour of your healed lips and take care of any adjustments. This takes place only when the skin has healed: usually 4-6 weeks from the initial procedure. Enjoy your new lips!

6. Maintenance

Permanent makeup does fade over time and exposure to sun and skin tone are contributing factors as to when you’ll require a colour boost. I would recommend booking a consultation with me 12-18 months from your completed procedure.

Previous work

Please see some examples of my work below. Please note that these images were taken immediately after the first procedure: the healed lips will soften in colour and any redness and swelling will disappear.

All procedures include a ‘top up’ after 6 weeks to perfect the colour and shape.
