Self-pro­claimed lip art mer­maid, Ryan Kelly was cat­a­pulted to In­sta­gram fame in 2015 when she posted a goofy photo of her in­ter­pre­ta­tion of ‘Left Shark’ (a char­ac­ter from Katy Perry’s Su­per­bowl half­time show) on her ac­count. “It went crazy. Peo­ple loved it and a cou­ple of peo­ple called it lip art in the com­ments. I’d never heard of lip art at the time, so I browsed the hash­tag. It was sort of like nail art, but on your lips. From there I thought “well, let’s see what else I can do.” That’s how it started.” said Kelly. Two years later, Kelly has now gath­ered a fol­low­ing of over 70,000 on In­sta­gram. Her feed is an in­cred­i­ble li­brary of weird and whacky lip art cre­ations. From lips painted like donuts and laced with frost­ing to wa­ter­colour French im­pres­sion­ist land­scapes, you can browse through her feed for hours and be in­spired by each and ev­ery one of her pic­tures. For more wear­able forms of lip art however, Kelly rec­om­mends the om­bré trend. “(Also) liq­uid lipstick is the best thing ever, and that trans­lates over to brides be­cause they’re al­ways look­ing for some­thing that’s long-wear­ing,” she added.
