Take Your Lip Game to a New Level With This High-Impact Effect
From one-and-done lip colors to the perfect shade for your skin tone, we are kinda obsessed with trend-right lippies. There’s just something about lip art that makes our beauty-loving hearts skip a beat. For the past few seasons, makeup artists all over Instagram have been creating show-stopping mini masterpieces with lip art that showcase one-of-a-kind designs (remember those epic oil slick lips?). So when Insta-superstar Johannah Adams debuted crystal lip art that looks like our favorite home decor accent, we couldn’t help but ugly cry with excitement. Thanks to her (and a few other badass Instagrammers), we bring you geode lips: out-of-this-world lip art that recreates geode stones, like agate and druzy, in all their iridescent glory. See how these makeup mavens have been making their lips shine below.
1. Rose Quartz: Sure, these lips aren’t exactly perfect for puckering up, but who cares when you’re rocking a look that’s this ah-mazing? Layer iridescent, clear and pastel pink paillettes over a soft shade of gloss if you want to replicate a rose quartz geode like the one above.

Here is my 1/2 of the crystal geode collaboration with the fabulous @kalahknox! She is an absolute pleasure to work with, and such a talent! My Amethyst Geode is inspired by @genevievejauquet and a nail art design by @wildflowersnails. **Quick update here, @beyou.byjoh also did an amethyst lip art look a couple of weeks ago. I did not originally credit her, because I didn't see it until today. But she absolutely created her look before mine, and while I wasn't directly influenced on this particular piece, her work in general is an inspiration and should be shared as often as possible! Prepare to drool! What's your favorite crystal? I have always been drawn to amethyst, but especially in raw form. Products: @jeffreestarcosmetics Drug Lord as my base color (what else is new, right?) @nyxcosmetics Suede Matte liner in Amethyst (perfect!) followed by their Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Stone Fox @katvondbeauty Liquid Lipstick in Witches @marthastewartcrafts purple chunky glitter #lipart #lipartist #ryankellymua #amethyst #geode #nailart #moonchild #collaboration #kvdlook #nyx #katvondbeauty #sacraluna #nyxcosmetics #glitter #lipoftheday

2. Amethyst Geode: From the impeccably drawn charcoal liner to the dramatic ombre effect, this look is in a league of its own. With a suede lip liner and chunky purple glitter, you can easily create this bold AF pout at home or for Halloween.

Something kinda different, I created amethyst geode lips 💎 I've always loved geodes and crystals so I thought why not try and paint it in makeup on myself?! @jeffreestarcosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks in #ImRoyalty #BlowPony #Weirdo #DrugLord used to create this and I used super fine nail art brushes then glued on tiny flecks of glitter pieces ✨ #VALsquadchallenge #VALsquad #VALidate #becreative #beartistic #amethystlips #bohemian #gypsy #crystals #gemstones #minerals #crystallove #jewels #boho #gyspylife #healingcrystals #spiritstone #geology #geode #geodelips #crystallips #druzy #druzylips #genevievejauquet #lipart #amethystdruzy

3. Purple Druzy: This purple druzy lip look uses a mix of clear gloss, richly pigmented lip stain and clear crystals to turn an ombre lip into a geode masterpiece. Use a fine brush to emulate the geode’s design and minimal glitter pieces to help reflect light all night long.
4. Pink Crystal: This look is a must when you’re opting for an out-of-this-world effect that’s impossible to ignore. The artist combines gloss, color and crystals into one concoction that’s then liberally spread over the lips. Once the formula is set, she uses heavy gold gloss to line the lip and then a thick clear gloss to set it. We think we’re in love.
