Bet­ter known by her pseu­do­nym Girl Grey Beauty, Cana­dian makeup artist An­drea Reed’s sig­na­ture style in her lip art is clean lines, bold pat­terns and gen­er­ous use of colour. With about 340,000 In­sta­gram fol­low­ers to date, her re­mark­able de­signs are largely in­spired by fa­mous pieces of art like Kat­sushika Hoku­sai’s Great Wave Off Kana­gawa, and even ev­ery­day things like plants and pot­tery. Us­ing her own lips as a can­vas, Reed trans­forms them into stun­ning pat­terns, prints and pic­tures, all of which are en­hanced with vibrant hues. She uses a com­bi­na­tion of ex­ten­sive makeup pal­ettes and ul­tra-fine makeup brushes to cre­ate her de­tailed looks. She is also more than happy to share her lip art se­crets with her fans by post­ing how-to tu­to­ri­als on her so­cial me­dia. “Lip art is so en­joy­able to me be­cause it’s such a chal­lenge. To pro­duce some­thing I am happy with, given such a small, dif­fi­cult can­vas, is very re­ward­ing. And my fol­low­ers seem to love them too!” she ex­claimed.
