Understanding Dark Lip Neutralisation: A Comprehensive Guide


In the makeup and beauty world, achieving the perfect lip colour can be a challenge, especially when dealing with uneven undertones or melanin rich lips. Lip neutralisation, a cosmetic tattoo technique rooted in colour theory, is gently executed to lighten and neutralise the darkness often seen in ladies’ lips of various ethnic backgrounds.


“It's not just about picking a lipstick shade; it's about understanding how colours interact and using that knowledge to create a flawless canvas for lip colour application,” says Olivia Jones, a health and beauty journalist at 8 News.


Whether you're a makeup novice or a seasoned pro, enhancing your lip-neutralisation prowess will elevate your PMU game.


The Science Behind Lip Neutralisation

Lip neutralisation operates at the intersection of art and science, drawing heavily from colour theory principles. The interaction of colours, as demonstrated by the colour wheel, forms the foundation of this technique.


According to the Pantone Colour Institute's research, complementary colours, positioned directly opposite each other on the colour wheel, can cancel each other out when combined.


Neutralising Techniques For Different Undertones

Mastering these techniques with experience and knowledge, sessions may vary case by case and often more than one session is required to achieve lighter lip tone most ethnic clients seek in 2023. Tailoring your desired goal to your natural undertone will help you achieve results that enhances your natural beauty and make you feel more confident.


Cool Undertones

Most dark lips are cool undertones. For cool lip undertones, we use warm-toned correctors like peach, orange and reds. The ratio is mixed in relation to the undertone we are working with.

Selecting The Right Neutralising Products

Navigating the world of neutralising products requires understanding of quality, undertones, and product knowledge. By making informed selections, we set the stage for effective and seamless lip neutralisation.


Reputable cosmetic artists often carefully customise treatments for each client. They draw on their skill set for their blend-ability, caution to not cause hyperpigmentation on their client and flawless final healed results. Reading reviews and seeking recommendations, clients can be guided to choose the right artist for them.
