The lip art has a super vampy color so I started out with one too - Cupcake Polish Blood Hound. I knew I was going to matte it so I made sure to take a photo in direct light first to show off all its holographic glory. Definitely vampy, right?
The lip photo has some simple silver heart studs. I don't own any so I made do with vinyls. After matte-ing Blood Hound with Essie Matte About You and waiting for that to dry, I used just one line of hearts from these Snail Vinyls and Essie No Place Like Chrome to end up with some shiny silver hearts. Not near as cool as the lip art but I liked them.
I mentioned I tried this look twice. For my first one I started with a gradient since I had just grabbed a couple dark Essence colors (Amazed By You and Black is Back), added silver glitter hearts and matted it. Unfortunately my cuticles and dark gradients hate each other so this ended up way messier than I wanted so I tried again.
With my newfound lip art love, do you guys know of any other makeup artists I should follow? And if anyone knows of the original post for my inspiration photo, I'd definitely love to include that here.
