3 Daring (Impractical?) Lip Looks!
After coming across a picture of some two-toned lips, I got to think about impractical lip looks. What I mean by that is lips that I might love on makeup artists in photographs, but I just can't see myself pulling it off!

1. Rhinestone Lips

A) This would take forever to apply
B) You probably can't eat
C) You probably can't talk
SO beautiful, but not practical!!!

2. Winged Lips

Let me start by saying I ADORE how this photographs. They look so cool!!!
But I just can't see this not looking a littttttle Joker-esque in real life? There's just no way I wouldn't feel silly. Granted, maybe I'm just too shy?
I guess for this look it really is going to depend on your natural lip shape: I don't think I would notice anything odd about this look if you have fuller lips than mine, or if your top lip is fuller than mine is at least! For me, I can't see it balancing out correctly.

3. Two-Toned Lips!

Depending on the colors, this is the one look that could probably work in real life! I mean, you could change up the colors to not be so dramatic if that's not your style.
Why do I think it's impractical then? Because the colors are going to blend together in about 2.5 seconds unless you have a crazy amazing lip product, and then you are going to have to do touch ups all day long. Seems frustrating, but this is the only one of these three looks I would consider trying!

What do you think of these bold styles?!

My verdict: perfect for photoshoots, editorials & high fashion, but probably won't make it into my life!

I have seen a lot of drag queens rocking the hell out of these looks! Love love love it! I could deal with the rhinestones for sure on stage though :)

The rhinestones on the lips reminds me of Katy Perry's Harper's Bazaar a few years ago. These looks, like @TessStevens said, works on performers and for editorial looks. If it's a random day off and you're headed to Jamba Juice, these looks probably won't fly. LOL But I am ALL FOR creativity and boldness. Half of pulling anything off is confidence and owning it. So, it depends on the person and the situation. But not for everyday random stuff.

@TessStevens @marshalledgar DEFINITELY would look amazing on stage! And you're totally right marshall, confidence can help you rock it, haha, I just don't think these looks fit any situation for me right now XD
