From its detail to the nostalgia it evokes, everything about this Golden Girls lip art is perfect. But makeup artist Ryan Kelly (who also put together this vivid Bird Box lip art) revealed that the illustration was created in the most painstaking way way.
“There’s no easy way out,” she said in the caption of her photo. “I found a reference photo that I liked and drew it out with some adjustments so that the proportions would work for my lips (i.e., no heads/major details between my top and bottom lip, and rounding it out in places), then made the drawing into a stencil and transferred it to my lips.”
Sure, the process was time-consuming, but as Blanche once said, “Better late than pregnant.”
