Dark Lip Correction, Neutralization and Lip Blushing: What’s the Difference

By May 01, 2024

When it comes to enhancing the appearance of your lips, there are several different cosmetic procedures available. Three common treatments are dark lip color correction, dark lip neutralization, and lip blushing. While they all focus on the lips, each one has a distinct purpose and process. Let’s break down the key differences.

Dark Lip Color Correction

As the name implies, dark lip color correction aims to correct and improve the natural pigmentation of darker lips. Many people have lips that appear darker in color than they would prefer, often due to excess melanin production or hyperpigmentation. This darkening can make the lips look uneven, discolored or aged.

The dark lip color correction process uses specialized pigments to neutralize and counteract the darker tones in the lips. A technician carefully applies these color-correcting pigments to the lips, masking the unwanted darker shades. The result is more even, natural-looking lip color that better matches your desired shade.

Multiple treatment sessions are typically required for full dark lip color correction. This allows the technician to gradually neutralize the darkness until you achieve your ideal lip tone and vibrancy. Touch-up sessions may also be needed to maintain the correction over time.

Dark Lip Neutralization

Dark lip neutralization is a similar concept but goes one step further than just color correction. With this treatment, the existing dark pigments in the lips are first neutralized and concealed using camouflaging pigment shades. But then an enhancing tint or fresh lip color is applied on top of the neutralized base.

So dark lip neutralization not only corrects and evens out darker lip tones, but allows you to create a brand new lip shade that you love, whether it’s a rosy pink, subtle red, or vibrant berry. This two-part process requires advanced pigment mapping skills by the technician.

Lip Blushing

While dark lip color correction and neutralization treatments aim to fix discoloration issues, lip blushing is all about enhancement. It is a semi-permanent cosmetic lip tattoo that adds tint, definition, and the appearance of fuller lips. Lip blushing uses implanted pigment to create the look of your favorite lipliner, lipstick, or lip stain, seamlessly blended into your natural lip tone.

The blushing pigments can make lips look beautifully flushed, add a youthful flush of color, or give more dimension and an ombre effect. Unlike lipstick that fades, lip blushing provides long-lasting color that develops an incredibly natural look.

For many clients, lip blushing can be combined with dark lip neutralization to first correct any darkness, then enhance with a flattering blush tone on top.

Which Treatment is Right for You?

Determining the right lip treatment depends on your current lip condition and desired outcome. If you are content with your natural lip color but want more vibrancy and definition, lip blushing may be ideal. If you have excessive dark pigmentation, starting with dark lip color correction or neutralization is recommended.

An experienced technician can evaluate your lips and recommend the best approach based on your goals. They can combine neutralization and blushing techniques to comprehensively treat darkness and discoloration while adding beautifully enhanced lip color.

A dark lip color correction treatment, a dark lip neutralization treatment, or a lip blush treatment—no matter which option you choose—these cosmetic lip treatments can provide significant improvement with long-lasting, natural-looking results. Regaining confidence in your lip appearance has never been easier.

I can’t even begin to say how grateful I am to have found Neena to do the microblading and shading on my eyebrows. Since I was about 13 years old, I would draw my eyebrows on with makeup since my eyebows were scarce and super blonde. Neena changed all of that today. 12 years later I FINALLY have the eyebrows I’ve always wanted and it’s all thanks to Neena!! She was very detail oriented and made sure I was 100% happy with the result before leaving. Not to mention, she treats you like a friend, not a customer. I highly recommend Strokes of Genius Microblading.
