Social media is teeming with talented self-taught makeup artists, and their lip art creations are nothing short of amazing. Here are five inspiring lip art accounts on Instagram you’ve got to see to believe.
Self-proclaimed lip art mermaid, Ryan Kelly was catapulted to Instagram fame in 2015 when she posted a goofy photo of her interpretation of “Left Shark” (a character from Katy Perry’s Superbowl halftime show) on her account. “It went crazy. People loved it and a couple of people called it lip art in the comments. I’d never heard of lip art at the time, so I browsed the hashtag. It was sort of like nail art, but on your lips. From there I thought “well, let’s see what else I can do.” That’s how it started.” said Kelly. Two years later, Kelly has now gathered a following of over 70,000 on Instagram. Her feed is an incredible library of weird and whacky lip art creations. From lips painted like donuts and laced with frosting to watercolour French impressionist landscapes, you can browse through her feed for hours and be inspired by each and every one of her pictures.
