Move over Kylie: These Insta stars are OWNING the world of lip art


With Kylie Jenner selling out lipkits like there’s no tomorrow, it’s pretty obvious lips are the one facial feature which still dominates all others.

And while a perfectly natural-looking pout is still viewed as something to aspire to, there is a new wave of Instagram makeup gurus who are taking the application of lipstick to a whole new level.

A quick “#lipart” search on Insta produces thousands of results, so to save you trolling through an endless stream of mouths, we’ve selected some of our favourite interpretations of this growing trend and channelled them into this easy list.


This sunset style is perfect for anyone who's left their heart in NYC.
