Velvet Lip Trend

Velvet Lips Are a Commitment to Not Eating Food We're Not Sure We're Ready For

The newest lip trend has arrived: velvet. We've moved on from neon lips and our most recent discovery, caviar lips, and now the favourite fashion trend has been added to the world of lip art.

Makeup artist Jessica Ferrelli shared two snaps of her velvet creations on Instagram, and we're mesmerised. She uses real velvet to create this look but gives us no more directions. Commenters are asking (slight begging) for a tutorial, and we second that. We need more details, immediately! Her inspiration was Pat McGrath's (always the first stop for unique inspo) Matte Trance lipstick colours.

Whilst this clearly isn't a practical weekday lip look, it certainly makes for a gorgeous Instagram snap (or 12). We can't wait to see if other makeup artists jump on the velvet train and come up with NSFF (not safe for food) creations.
