Marble Lip Art Tutorial

Marble Lip Art Tutorial

There’s a new lip trend out there and it’s the subject of some seriously gorgeous pictures on Instagram. Forget the new marble kitchen counter you’ve been longing for, it’s marble-coated lips that are topping the most wanted list.

This stunning marble lip art perfected by instagrammers like @beautybypaisley may look extremely complicated but creating a marbleised pout is actually quite easy (but it does take a bit of practice!). Read on, to find out how:

  • If you’re a beginner, best keep in simple to start with. We suggest a classic marble effect – electric colours and metallic finishing touches can come later.
  • Create your base with a smoothing and nourishing coat of Lypsyl lip balm – any fragrance you fancy.
  • Gently blot, then apply a matte white lip colour like Lipstick Queen Ice Queen.
  • Once your icy white base colour is set, grab a piece of cling film and crumple it up in the palm of your hand, so it’s nice and crinkled.
  • Tip some dark pigment powder (MAC do a great range of colours) into the cling film, so it gathers in the tiny creases. You won’t need much.
  • Gently press the film onto your lips to create the marble effect.
  • Finally, if you need to add dimension to any of your marbled lines, apply Lypsyl to your little finger and gently dab onto a few to flatten or mute them. Add a subtle dab of glitter if you’re feeling sparkly.
