Lip Art Designs And It’s History

It is nothing but a way of expressing ourselves and whether we do it with lipsticks or with any form of accessory or makeup, it is still going to be art.

In this article, we will be talking about lip art designs- designs that are going to leave your mind blown but at the same time, easy enough to be replicated too! In fact, if you browse through Instagram now, lip art makeup is actually a pretty popular thing and beauty bloggers all around the world are using crazy stuff to come up with some mind-blowing designs. Let’s check out some lip pop art that’s taking the world by a storm.
Let’s Start Simple: Ombre Lips
You have seen ombre hair and ombre nails, ombre lips are a possibility too! Neon ombre lips are actually a great way to amp up your glam look. But mind you, they need some real confidence to be carried out and also a great deal of precision. Even then, this is the easiest kind of lip art that you can start with.
Take two bright neon colours- Pink and Orange. The trick is to colour the lip with one colour and ombre out with the other. You can choose any one you like. Once you are one lining and colouring your lip with one colour, take the other and dab on the inner side of the lips (Just like the picture). The second colour should radiate out from the middle of the lips. When you are done, just roll your lips together for the blending touches.
If patterns and intricate designs are your thing, then decal lips can take you places. Especially this rose printed lips is a must for those of you who love florals. Use a dark colour lipstick for a base or background (Burgundy, Navy, Indigo or Magenta) and use a brush dipped in golden liquid eye-shadow to draw the patterns. Difficulty level is pretty high in this one because you will need to use the brush with utmost precision. But these lips are to die for! Try and see
