Based in Los Angeles, Vlada Haggerty is a makeup artist and and photographer who uses lips as a canvas to create looks worthy of Haute Couture fashion shows.

As you can see on her Instagram account, each lip look is often adorned with dazzling gems, glittering sequins or metallic gloss sparkles. Some of them even feature insect-inspired jewels that seem to enter through the mouth. Sublimely scary !

Sometimes, the artist more reasonably hand-paints motifs on lips. Whatever, all of her art show her boundless imagination. Power to the makeup !
