What are 3D Whip & Wash lips?

Semi-permanent 3D whip & wash lips is an advanced SPMU technique that helps enhance the lips to give the impression of defined fullness.  

Created with specially formulated pigment, the pigment is etched into the skin with a digital machine.

Lightly ‘whipping’ over the lips with a selection of needles and using diluted pigment to ‘wash’ over the centre of the lips, the whip & wash technique achieves a realistic and natural 3D effect for your clients.  


What will you learn on the course?

Do you want to create perfect contoured lips? Upskill your semi-permanent lip blush and liner technique and design 3D borderless lips.  

Our expert semi-permanent makeup trainers will teach you how to create defined lips with vibrant popping colour using this 3D whip & wash technique. Advance your learning in new needle configurations, pigmentology and focus your skills in creating lips that have a realistic 3D effect.

This advanced course will involve mastering advanced mapping skills, perfecting your stretches and the control of your hand speed depth and pressure to achieve perfect lip results.
