Andrea, who goes by @girlgreybeauty, on Instagram, is the latest artist garnering attention for her creative makeup looks. Her impressive lip designs have earned her a following of 364,000 people at the time of this post.
Andrea told INSIDER over email that she's always been passionate about art in various mediums, but is primarily focused on creative makeup art. In 2014, she first started to experiment with makeup to challenge herself with a more complex canvas — her lips.
And her canvas certainly seems difficult.
The artist told us that each design application takes one to two hours, which doesn't include concept development, planning, and drawing out the designs, photography, and retouching/editing. From start to finish, the entire process takes four to six hours, depending on the level of detail required for her particular lip art.
Andrea's collection of work showcases her wide range of interests. The artist said that she pulls inspiration from many different places, including famous art, nature, colors, textiles, and her cat.
While there's no shortcut to emulating her work, Andrea shared some of her go-to techniques for precise lipstick application. For her lip art, she said that she likes to use "tiny brushes from the art store." As far as product is concerned, she opts for lipstick and eyeliner formulas that go on as a liquid, but dry completely matte.
And if you're wondering how Andrea prevents her makeup from smudging, she told us that she has to keep her mouth open for the entire duration of the application.
Her art may reach hundreds of thousands of people online, but Andrea said she doesn't wear the completed makeup looks in public. In the caption of one of her Instagram posts from April 2019, she explained that she wipes off her lip art once she has photographed the outcome.
Surprisingly, Andrea does not consider herself a makeup artist.
