NOTE: Lip color procedures NOT RECOMMENDED for Fitzpatrick VI skin tones.
The Forever Lips are divided in (3) Series:
* Titanium Free
Although a lip formula may contain warm ingredients, because all lips have a cool undertone (some more than others), a lip color thant is designated as "warm" will likely heal less warm than the formulation appears prior to the procedure.
Achieving a "warm" lip is very challenging, the client's lips must be very pale to achieve this. Warmer ingredients are offered in selected formulation to help prevent a "too cool" healed lip appearnance,not necessarily to achieve a healed orange appearance. Even considering a pale lip canvas,the artist not the client may not see a noticibly orange appearnance when healed.
Note of Caution: These colors were developed to meet the needs of well trained, experienced professionals.
The Modifier/Corrector Series are powerful colors and not intended for general use alone upon virgin skin. Artists familiar with layering ‘insurance’ colors into lip formulas will enjoy beautiful results. Inexperienced artists should seek formula advice and specialized training in advanced modifying/correcting or blending lip colors before using.
Neutral; Cool; Warm
•Neutral signifies no substan al temperature bias. However, all color results are dependent upon skin undertones.
•Cool and warm designa ons indicate the basic temperature bias of the pigment's color undertone.
A temperature designation does not necessarily indicate absolute cool or warm proper es; rather that the primary bias leans toward either cool or warm. There are different degrees of cool and warm. Some colors may be only slightly cool or warm, whereas others may be very cool or warm. Please note that all results are dependent not only on the color chosen, but the skin undertone of the client; the needle configuration used; and the technique employed.
Each of those elements all play a very important role in the outcome of how warm or cool a color appears when healed. The pigment color ‘temperature’ refers to the primary base of the pigment color leaning toward cool or warm. All color placed in skin will be influenced by skin’s undertone. When accessing your client’s skin undertone and taking in consideration the technique being applied, adding warmth to prevent any blue and/or purple is the artist’s responsibility. How much warmth depends on all these above factors. Each artist must work with Li Pigment colors and the client's individual skin undertones to determine the appropriate temperature bias of the correct pigment color selection for each client.
Note on color base descriptions: The second word describes the most influential hue; the first word describes that color’s influence. Example: Orange &Yellow signifies the color is mainly orange but has a yellow influence.
