Lip Art



Just a few fun pieces of lip art I've done in the past. Leopard, stars, and black with rhinestones. I've included a short explanation of what I did for each one just in case anyone is wondering. The lighting in these pictures was edited but the lips themselves were not.

And yes, these are my lips and my work :)


Pink Leopard

Products:
NYX lipliner in Pinky, MAC Impassioned Lipstick, and MAC Blacktrack Fluidline
Steps:
I started by lining and filling my lips with a bright pink liner. Next, I applied a coat of bright pink lipstick, blotted, then applied another coat, and blotting for a final time. This allowed for a buildup of color without having it be too thick. Last using a craft store brush similar to the MAC 209, I created the leopard design.

Stars:

Products:
MAC Blacktrack Fluidline, MAC Fix+ Spray, MAC pigments )Golden Lemon, Mutiny, and Fuchsia), Duo clear lashglue, craft store rhinestones, and MAC clear Lipglass
Steps:
I started by using a lip brush to apply a black gel liner to my entire lip area, allowing it to set. Next, using the Fix+ and pigments, I created "paints" and carefully drew the stars using a brush similar to the MAC 209, then allowing them to dry. Then, using lash glue, I applied the rhinestones where desired. After everything was dry and had set, I very lightly used my finger to press lipgloss over my lips; not all over, just in certain spots for a bit of shine.
Black with rhinestones:

Products:
MAC Blacktrack Fluidline, Duo clear lash glue, and craft store rhinestones
Steps:
Definitely the easiest of all, I simply used a lip brush to apply a black gel liner to my lips. Then I finished off by using the lash glue to stick the rhinestones on where I desired.

  7. Thanks everyone! I feel inspired to do a little more lip art now :)

    Arezu...I do the same as you. I constantly an rubbing my lips together or licking them. Lipgloss never lasts long on me :| But these were for photography purposes only. I did my lips, took pictures, then removed it all. Just for fun!
