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.
Better known by her pseudonym Girl Grey Beauty, Canadian makeup artist Andrea Reed’s signature style in her lip art is clean lines, bold patterns and generous use of colour. With about 340,000 Instagram followers to date, her remarkable designs are largely inspired by famous pieces of art like Katsushika Hokusai’s Great Wave Off Kanagawa, and even everyday things like plants and pottery. Using her own lips as a canvas, Reed transforms them into stunning patterns, prints and pictures, all of which are enhanced with vibrant hues. She uses a combination of extensive makeup palettes and ultra-fine makeup brushes to create her detailed looks.
