Art of the Lip: Shimmering, liquified, bejeweled and adorned

With lip art worthy of a museum, this collection showcases the magic Vlada Haggerty creates with lipstick.

As Kylie Jenner put it, “Check out this inspiring photograph from . . . @vladamua!”

From opulent to optical illusion, Haggerty’s art is a blend of makeup and magic that transforms her lips into canvases. Makeup artist royalty, her work is washed across the Internet, lips dripping and bedazzled, transformed by talent and a vision that’s helped shape the beauty industry.

Featuring over 200 photographs of Haggerty’s work, Art of the Lip is a sumptuous tome to flip through and marvel at the minute painted details on her lips in each photo. Gloss, lipstick, sequins, and jewels transform Haggerty’s skin in hundreds of different images, with looks inspired by nature, jewelry, pop culture, and more.

Much more than just lipstick, Haggerty’s art is a showcase of makeup’s power and an artist’s innovation.
