Lip Procedures at PMUbyG

The Ombre Full Lip procedures have become very popular across the globe.  This specialised application technique and stunning variety of soft pigment colours delivers gorgeous kissable results.  


We have recently consulted with clients, both men and women of all ages, who have lost their natural lip colour either due to age-related loss of definition or scarring caused by fever blisters (cold sores), dog bites, burn or accident victims.  Many business women and mothers with active and busy lifestyles seeking to minimise time spent with makeup and those that simply want to look their best at all times!

  • Restore the shape and natural colour of lips
  • Adds fullness and volume
  • Correct asymmetrical lip shapes

Lip Contour:

The lip contour procedure softly defines the natural lip contour with a blush of colour similar to your natural lip. A soft, natural and discrete enhancement which provides subtle, smooth effect – with added volume. The aim is to ultimately deliver a seamless definition that is virtually undetectable – although some clients prefer a pearly pink, apricot-peach or a muted tawny lip edge.

Full Lip Blush:

The Natural Full Lip Blush, also known as the Ombre Lip Procedure suits clients wishing to revive the lips and add fullness.  The Natural Full Lip Blush procedure incorporates a subtle or defined smooth lipline contour enhancement (as described above) but adds an additional delicate flush of colour over the body of the lips. Colour may be matched as close as possible to your natural lip colour or you may prefer the new soft shades of flowing colours. This popular result is suitable for all ages, genders and skin tones, and appears similar to wearing a subtle, muted-nude lipstick shade.

Full Lip Colour:

This frequently requested lip enhancement procedure is ideal for for those of us who love to wear lipstick every day.  Youthful, fuller lips can be successfully achieved.  Using advanced artistry skills, we add contour definition of the lips by blending a combination of complimentary lip colours flawlessly across your lips to add volume, definition and long lasting elegant colour.

The Procedure:

An in-depth consultation precedes every procedure, during which the lip shape, skin and lip colour tones, your personality and face shape will be assessed.  Based on your requirements I will use my advanced artistic skills to design an elegant, complimentary lip enhancement.  Once you have approved the pencil design, we will then carefully place the pigment colours commencing with the lip contour, using a state-of-the-art computerized precision hand piece. Highly effective numbing agents are used prior to and throughout the procedure to ensure your comfort.  Finally, you may choose between a high definition crisp edge or a soft contour finish to your lips.  A secondary numbing is applied to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment.

Finally, your follow-up perfection visit will be scheduled for 6 weeks later.


After 10 to 12 days – simply apply your favourite gloss and you’re good to go!
