How To: Lip Shading Using Micro-Pigmentation

In this tutorial, you’ll learn more about lip micro-pigmentation. This video was provided by Nika Mahdavi micro-pigmentation center.


Greetings. I’m Nika Mahdavi. I’m a pigmentation artist and instructor. Today I want to talk to you about the different applications of micro-pigmentation for lips, such as lip liners, shading, and lipsticks. Today we’re going to focus on shading which helps make the lips look plumper. Please stay with me through this tutorial.

What you’re seeing here is a lip micro-pigmentation which can take different forms. You could use this method to apply a permanent lipstick, apply lip liners, or do what I have done here, which is applying a shade around the lips where the lines around the lips are darker and they are lighter inside the lips. This makes the lips look like they have more volume, which is quite popular today. You can change the darker and lighter shades based on the client’s preference and what you think suits the lips better and it doesn’t have to be constant.

One of the questions that the students often ask is which cartridge is suitable for working on the lips. This depends on your experience and how much you want to fill the lips with these pigmentations or shades. What I’m using here is a triple head cartridge which makes the process take longer but is more suitable for delicate work. When it comes to choosing the color, as I said before, it depends on what the client wants and what you deem fit based on the facial skin type, color and the skin of the lip and its color. What I did here is to add some volume to the lips, which happens when you apply a darker shade around the lips close the borders of the lips and darker shades as you move closer inside the lips. The shades are darker on the corners of the lips and it fades as you move towards the center. This also depends on how much volume you want to add to the lips.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial.
