Crystal Lip Art: The Dreamy Beauty Trend Filling Up Our Instagram Feeds

Posted: Updated:

Instagram beauty trends can be rather questionable at times (remember foot contouring?), but this is one we can actually get behind.

Our current Instabeauty obsession? Crystal lips, that is, pouts adorned with tiny gemstones such as amethysts, druzy quartz and pyrites.

As seen on New York-based makeup artist Johannah (@beyou.byjoh)'s feed, these dreamy creations are made with a combination of liquid lipsticks, metallic liquid lip colour and tiny crystals, according to Cosmopolitan. Many of them are inspired by pieces of jewelry Johannah loves.

And the results are simply stunning.

Another take on the trend can be seen on Australian MUA Genevieve Jauquet (@genevievejauquet)'s Instagram page, however, hers uses Mehron pigments, flecks of glitter and cut-up sequins to get the look.

✨ P Y R I T E ✨ __ Fool's Gold or Pyrite was the stone to begin my collection when I was a child. My Mum would buy a special little geology information package for me and each issue included a different stone. I was instantly enamoured with Pyrite 😍 __ @mehronmakeup #MetallicPowder in #silver and #gold mixed to create this muted semi gold shade, then made into liquid with @mehronmakeup mixing medium and applied with @smithcosmetics brush in #304 __ For the texture and shapes I cut up sequins in tiny pieces and glued them on, then applied my @mehronmakeup mixture over the top which by that stage it was starting to dry and turn lumpy so it gave me some extra lovely textured areas 😀 __ Final step was some glitter randomly spread and clear gloss only in certain areas 😉 __ #VALsquad #VALidate #VALsquadchallenge #beartistic #becreative #geologylips #bohemian #gypsy #crystals #gemstones #minerals #crystallove #jewels #boho #gyspylife #healingcrystals #spiritstone #crystallips #gemstonelips

Mesmerizing, no?

And at the end of the day, we'd much rather have crystals on our lips than on our feet via Crocs, no matter how difficult it may be to apply, let alone drink and eat with.
