Crystal lip art is a beauty trend where tiny crystals, liquid lipstick, and metallic liquid lip color are used to make designs that look like they came from nature. It has become popular on Instagram and is expected to become even more popular in the future.
Remember when geode cakes became the thing on Instagram after galaxy macarons and rainbow bagels? Geode cakes were cool, unique, and mesmerizing to look at.
Well, now the look has been given a beautiful twist to satisfy all makeup lovers. Crystal lips are the latest thing blowing up on Instagram, and they are as stunning as any multi-tiered wedding cake.
Makeup artists use lipsticks, pigments, mini crystals, and glitter to create a geode-like look on their puckers. Simply by switching up the placement and the colors, they can create everything from an amethyst finish to a quartz one.
One of the purveyors of the trend is makeup artist Johannah on @beyou.byjoh. She created magical gemstone looks using liquid lipsticks and Mehron pigments.
Makeup artist Genevieve Jauquet is another one who is helping to make us obsessed with the finish. In one Instagram post, she explains that she recreates the Pyrite look using cut-up sequins and glitter to achieve the distinct uneven effect.
Are crystal lips something that you could eat with? No, probably not. Even drinking through a straw would prove to be challenging. That being said, rocking lip art is something that you cannot help but want to try. Just look at how mesmerizing it is.
