BECOME A LIP BLUSH MODEL
Things to consider before you model for Lip Blush:
Being a lip blush model is an exciting & rewarding gym experience! Not only do you beautiful new lips at the end of your treatment, but you will also save huge!
Our model treatments are preformed by our trained students who are coming to the end of their assessment process. They are preformed under the watchful eyes of our highly experienced Master Artists-Trainers in a safe, professional training environment.
Sounds great, right? But before becoming a model, there are a few things you'll need to consider...
1. Your Lip Past
If you have had lip blush or tinting of any kind done in the past, you will not be eligible to model. When looking for models, our ideal person will have untouched lips completely free of permanent makeup.
2. Your availability
Model treatments can take longer to preform as they are carried out by students undertaking an assessment. Although our students are trained and experienced, we allow extra time for them to work at a slower pace under the expert guidance of our Master Artist-Trainers. This is to ensure that the treatment is carried out safely, professionally, and responsibly. If you do not have enough spare time in the day to be able to commit to a couple of hours of your treatment, then this will not be a great option for you.
3. Your health
Your health can play a huge part in whether you are suitable for a permanent makeup or microblading treatment. For example, if you are undergoing chemotherapy, have health conditions like heart disease or a blood-borne virus, you would not be suitable for a treatment whilst you have the condition. Some medications can also affect your treatment such as Isotretinoin (commonly called Accutane), Warfarin and Aspirin. These are just a few examples – our forms with have a full list of total contraindications for you if you are at all unsure.
NOT CANDIDATES FOR PERMANENT MAKEUP:
Heart Conditions/Pace Maker/Defibrillator (No exceptions)
People with diabetes.
Women who are pregnant or lactating.
People with glaucoma or taking blood thinning medication.
People with skin diseased such as psoriasis, eczema and undiagnosed rashes or blisters on the Site that is to be treated.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU HAVE LIP FILLERS OR BOTOX OR PLAN TO DO SO, YOU ARE ONLY ELIGIBLE TO MODEL 3 MONTHS BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE OR 3 MONTHS AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE.
4. Your Expectations
The shape of the lip liner is always drawn on prior to the tattooing procedure. Once you have approved the shape and color we then continue with the actual tattooing. Lip treatments can heal differently on each individual person depending on several factors such as skin type, the pigments chosen and whether the aftercare advice is followed. Lip treatments are taken over the course of two appointments- the first appointment is where your initial consultation takes place, the shape and color of your lips is determined, and the pigment is applied to create your beautiful new lips. A second appointment should follow within 4 – 6 weeks which is for re-touching – this is where your technician will make any color adjustments needed or fill in any gaps where the pigment may have lightened or not retained within the skin. This model service does not include the touch-up appointment, that will have to be booked separately.
5. Your plans before and after the treatment
You will be given thorough advice on what to do after your treatment to get the absolute best results for your new lips. This includes advice such as ensuring that your lips are kept clean and moisturized, avoiding makeup throughout the healing process and avoiding direct sunlight to your lips. It is important to avoid going to the gym or swimming straight after your treatment as it can severely impact the healing process. You will also need to avoid waxing and tinting treatments right before your treatment and until your lips have healed. The forms provided at your service will give you a thorough understanding of the best process to follow to get the desired end results.The lips may appear very dry and chapped as they heal. The color may appear lighter at first, however it comes back as the skin heals. Usually the truest color appears after about two weeks.
**Use a good sunscreen daily- even lips require protection. Sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics and may cause irritation even years later.**
