Lip microblading can also be used to eliminate discoloration or slight imperfections on the lips; it is however advisable to start from a light color, without daring too much, because the make-up is semi-permanent and you must avoid at all costs that you clearly notice the gap between the tattoo and the natural color of the lips.
