You may not know this but today is National Lipstick Day. In light of this, I thought it might be a good time to share with you more amazing Lipstick Sculptures by May Sum – makeup artist, cat-lover, ceramicist and illustrator.
More Lipstick Sculptures by May Sum
When I first shared her work with you here four years ago, she was carving celebrity likenesses, custom likenesses, objects and more into various brands of traditional lipsticks and selling them on etsy. UPDATE: She no longer has an etsy store.
She has since evolved her lipstick art and this series of stunning lipstick and floral creations is my favorite.
And I must include her Tardis and David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor Lipsticks for my fellow Whovians as well:
May Sum has gone on to create for various makeup shows, editorials and brands. Her collaborative works have included pieces for such fashion and beauty brands as Disney, Shu Uemura, Chanel, Shiseido, Lane Crawford, LCX, Vivienne Westwood(A Life in Fashion Exhibition), Apivita, vs sassoon Fancl,YUBZ, 5CM, GROOVISIONS, le saunder, Dove, Dior, LUCKY BRAND JEANS, Land Crawford, Giffarine, Clinique, Just diamond, Harbout City, Catalog, Jollyshandy, APM, DTC, MegaBox, HKTB.
