Pucker Up: Lip Art Is The New Trend Taking Over Instagram

Pucker Up: Lip Art Is The New Trend Taking Over Instagram

Move over nail art, because this season it’s all about the lips. Lip art is doing the rounds on social media and, quite frankly, it has us mesmerised.

Forget a slick of a classic red (or pink) lipstick as you dash out the door because a seriously talented bunch of women are turning painting your pout into an entirely new art form. And the results are all kinds of beautiful.

Stepping away from the average lipsticks, liners and glosses, lip artists are using everything from rhinestones to glitter, sprinkles and even spikes to create the mini make-up masterpieces that are bringing new meaning to the term statement lips. The results are daring fun and frequently wacky, but if you ever wanted a statement lip – this is a surefire way to stand out from the crowd.

See some of our favourite designs below:

you’re dripping like a saturated sunrise I’ve been on a Halsey kick these past few days which has been made more intense by the announcement that her Indianapolis tickets go on sale on Friday. So I definitely couldn’t help myself with this one.

Floral #Lipart Using @anastasiabeverlyhills Liquid Lipsticks in Milkshake, Party Pink, Bambi, Carina, Retro Coral, and Vintage. The green leaves and white highlights are from the @makeupforeverofficial Flash Palette. Sorry I can’t remember which brushes I used as this is an old old old lipart that I never posted. Two reasons why: 1. I didn’t have enough light when I took the photo (I’ve since learned how to brighten the image while keeping the colours true to real life) It’s definately not perfect but oh well 2. Literally while I was finishing up this photo months back, I checked my IG and saw that @sarahmcgbeauty had posted her own floral lipart. I know it seems petty but I didn’t want people thinking I was copying her Sarah’s is amazing I think I was intimidated a bit too. Anyway I kinda forgot about it but I’m happy I revisited.
