Pale Lips/Dark Lips

Have you ever bought a lipstick with a beautiful, unique colour from a store, going back home and looking forward to putting it on in front of a mirror. However, it turns out that the colour shown on your lips is not the colour you expected! This frustration is because we all have colour on the lips which may not simply reflect the colour of the lipstick. Apart from using lip makeup, how can we improve our lip colours, pale lips or dark lips?

Lip Colours

Lip colours can range from pink, red, purple to dark purple. Healthy lips usually appear red, shiny, hydrated and plump.

Healthy- and good-looking lips are moisturised, soft, pink, and plump. Dark lips can be purple or dark brown. It is difficult to put colour on darker lips. On the other hand, pale lips are white or light red in colour, making the person look unwell.


In general, our lip colour is determined by the colour of the blood supply at the lip. The oxygen content can affect the colour of the blood, i.e. the higher the oxygen supply, the more red the blood will be. Pale lips or dark lips are mostly inherited.

However, they are not always the case, pale or dark lips can be acquired due to lifestyles and health conditions. Dark lips can be caused by insufficient physical activities, dampness (Chinese medicine), diseases, and pigmentation caused by poor facial cleaning routine. Pale lips can result from poor blood circulation, excess physical activities, and diseases.


Dark Lips:

Some people, due to health conditions or other reasons, have dark lips, making their lips look dull and less vibrant. Dark lips may give the wrong impression that they are not well. Also, they have less choice of colour when it comes to the lip makeup.

Pale Lips:

Pale lips are considered a sign of poor blood circulation and poor health. People with pale lips have no choice but to wear lip makeup all the time.

Dark Lines Around the Lips:

Dark lines around the lips will create contrast with the lip itself, leaving the nude lips looking unnatural and unfinished. Lips with dark lines around should have the lips coloured with the appropriate colour for a natural look.

A. Microblading Lips

What is microblading lips:

Semi-permanent makeup helps enhance the beauty of our face features including eyebrows, eyes, and lips and add definition to the face, offering long-lasting professional makeup results. They are ideal for people who want to wake up fresh every morning without a hassle. Microblading lip is one of the semi-permanent makeup treatments.

How does it work:

Lips microblading is a practical semi-permanent makeup technique. It enhances the beauty of natural lip colour and rebuilds a desired lip shape by depositing pigment on the lips. The pigments used are all-natural pigments containing no synthetic pigments, safer than chemical pigments. The natural pigments will be implanted on the epidermis of the lips, making your lips looking healthy, bright, soft and plump. The results will last for 2-3 years and you can attend colour top-up treatments to maintain the results.
