What do you do with black and navy lip gloss besides use it for a costume? Some people can pull it off in their daily life, but not me! COVERGIRL sent me a bunch of colors from their Major Shade Matte Liquid Lipstick and Melting Pout Matte Liquid Lipsticks collection, so I knew I wanted to use it for my Makeup Art series.
Drawing with lip gloss sounds like it would be easy but it’s harder than I thought it would be. It’s not like runny paint that you can squeeze out and just dip your brush into. You have to go back into the tube constantly to get enough color to deposit on the paper.
I loved the texture that the applicator made with the gloss on the paper. I just played around a little in the beginning to see what types of shapes I could make, and ended up with this blue and black leopard pattern which I thought turned out really well.
But not all things turn out so amazing…
Next I wanted to use all of the nudes and see what kind of pattern I could make with them.
The little dashes of lines turned out fine, but not as interesting as the leopard print. Hey, you win some, you lose some! Like I’ve said before with art, you have to make a lot of crappy work to ever make anything good.
