Most of us follow quite simple beauty routines when it comes to our lips: swipe on a little colour, sometimes line the edges, or just apply gloss. The majority of us also have a tendency to cling to safe colour palettes, such as a basic selection of pinks and reds. But when it comes to lip art, sorry girl – no rules apply.
In fact, the more extravagant, the better. We’re not talking basic red and pink. We’re talking rhinestone details, abstract designs, and all things glitter. Since it’s Lipstick Day, why not ditch the regular and go for some over the top lip art that’ll draw all the attention to your puckers? Not sure where to start? We’ve got a list!
