Lipstick jungle

Elle lipstick fashion illustrations

There are many things that make me happy when seen in a line-up – drinks (usually only seen on your birthday), gig tickets (I currently have an exceptional one of these – hello Cat Power/Kurt Vile/Sunnyboys/Rolling Stones? – Yes now try and contain your seething jealousy I dare you), new shoes, and lipsticks.  So as jobs go, illustrating these lipsticks for Elle magazine December ’13 issue wasn’t exactly a hard day at the office.  I may or may not have taken all of them for a road test…

And since all of these were painted with the actual lipsticks, if you’re interested, here’s the role-call: (L-R) YSL Sheer Candy #5, M.A.C. Flat Out Fabulous, Dior Darling, L’Oreal Rose Tendre, Bobbi Brown Bobbi #5, Clinique black honey, Tom Ford Black Orchid, Napoleon Hara, Revlon Revlon Red, Poppy Red Sinner, Revlon gloss Top Tomato.

Set ’em up Joe…

I have that Revlon Top Tomato gloss – its excellent! Easily the best stay-on lipstick there is.

I’ve got a complete crush on Revlon now! Great name, great price, great make-up = bingo!

Love the loose style of this illustration!

Thanks Sheena! It’s nice to be able to draw in a relaxed way.
