Lip Tinting

The key to a more confident smile. The key to sexy, smudge-free lips.

There’s no other makeup ritual that has to be repeated as often as the reapplication of lipsticks, liners and glosses. It smears off eating, drinking, sweating, kissing your baby, or just by talking!  Permanent lip tinting frees you from the nuisance of reapplying lipstick ten times a day, and the embarrassment of lipstick coming off on everything from mugs to a special someone’s face.

Lip tinting shapes and defines your natural lip line as well as enhances your natural lip color, giving your lips a healthy, sexy appearance.

Lip tinting is best for…

People with natural lip color so similar to their face color that they appear washed out without lipstick on, as well as those with uneven or undefined lips. Busy professionals and parents, travelers, sports and outdoors-loving people rave about how lip tinting frees up hours of their time. Lipstick and lip gloss connoisseurs also swear by lip tinting, because they can still apply their lip cosmetics as desired, but never be bare all the time.

The lip tinting procedure

The expert permanent makeup artists at Cindy Choe Studio are adept in the art and science of designing the correct lip shape.

You procedure will start with a consultation with your technician, who is also your makeup artist. She’ll look at your face and lip shape and advise where your lip line should be. Together, with over 40 hypo-allergenic pigments, you’ll custom blend the perfect shade – whether that’s a “just-bitten” barely there stain to a more bold look. She’ll draw in your color in pencil, and once you’ve settled on your shape and color, lay back and let her do her magic!

You’ll be numbed by a topical anesthetic for minimum discomfort, and your technician will use a micropigmentation pen to artistically create your new perfect lips. Because the “tattoo” is only going into the dermal layer of your skin, it will fade in 1-3 years. This semi-permanence is ideal because lip and facial shapes change over time, as do lip style trends.

There’s no downtime after the procedure. When you walk out the door you’ll enjoy the new freedom from hours of applying and reapplying lipstick, as well as never again glancing in the mirror and wondering how long the glob of lipstick has been on your teeth!

"I was nervous coming in because I didn't know how to draw my brows. I let her do her magic and walked out with perfect brows! Thank you!!!"
Merideth D
"She loves what she does and she's really good at it. She's had 20 years experience and kind of just made it her own. I know a friend who drove from up north just to come see her. I can't stop staring at my friend's eyebrows. Looks so natural and nice."
Jessica E.
"A couple of years ago, after A LOT of research, I met Cindy. Since then I've had my eyebrows & eyeliner done myself as well as referred my sister & Mom. Needless to say I think she is the absolute best!"
Chi N.
"Cindy is a MAGICIAN! I absolutely LOVE my eyebrows, and constantly get complimented on them. Cindy was also just so sweet... And she was so accommodating when my first round of tattoo didn't exactly go as we had expected or wanted it to."
Pavlina A.
"Thank you Mia and Cindy for making my life so easy. Waking up with perfect brows is a dream come true ( still can't believe it so have to pinch myself ) . I appreciate the professionalism and the way you make everyone feel special. If I can give you more starts I would but 5 is the max:)"
