Hello beautiful, today I’m going to show you how to do Union Jack flag on your lips, and I know many of you think like why would I want to learn to do this? This is not an everyday make up, and the only places you could brave that are photo shoots, scrambles, costume parties, but I personally think that these kind of make ups help you evolves make up artists, it gives you a lot of confidence, and they get you to absolutely different makeup artistry level. So if you want to become better, in make up, you should definitely try and do this. So yeah if you are interested then just continue watching.
Okay let’s begin, to grade this lot we need to have good lip products, I personally prefer Pout paints by Sleek makeup, these are in gels by consistency and this pack makes Pout paints easier to work with, okay so the first thing you want to do is create your white background, to the next step is the Red cross, in order to create it perfectly, eliminate any unwanted red prints on the white background, create horizontal line partly on the lower and partly on the upper lips, I suggest using a small flat brush to create the cross, and this is how I do it.
The vertical line is very easy, just locate it in the centre of your lips, to grade the rest of the red lines, use a stiff angled brush, the key point here is symmetry so, do not hurry here, take your time.
Finally let’s use some blue colour, and create small triangles in between of those red lines, to be honest this part is the most difficult one, besides the fact that you need to have a steady hand, the small short motions, and the brush tickle my lips so badly, that I wanted to laugh all the time. But here’s how the final result looks like. So that’s it, that’s the final look as you can see it didn’t require a lot of time, and it was not difficult to do at all, as long as you are patient, and it’s actually a really easy to talk with these kind of lips, and not really afraid of smudging as long as you do the bottom of the lips red, and I really enjoyed using Pout paints by Sleek Makeup.
