Daring fashion damsels get ready for the latest trend in the beauty world: temporary lip tattoos. Cosmetics brand Violent Lips is responsible for starting the funky fad which lets ladies wear all sorts of picture perfect pout designs. There’s denim shades, polka dots, animal prints, stripes, fishnet, sparkle and patrotic flags just to name a few.
In Miami, only a handful denizens have been seen sporting the can’t-miss-me smackers. One of those gals is makeup guru Aileen Quintana who owns Makeup By Aileen. “I own every style,” said Quintana. “I started wearing them during Swim Week and people really seem to like them.” The Lady Gaga like lips are also getting popular in the celeb world as singer Keyshia Cole and Playboy model Hope Dworaczyk have been spotted in them. The tattoos come pre-cut and are applied using scissors, a cotton ball and water. Drying time takes five minutes and they can last anywhere between 4 to 8 hours. There available at Ricky’s NYC on Lincoln Road and soon chains like Ulta and Sephora will have them in stock.
