Jessie J lips
How to get those union jack lips that Jessie J has worn - with out the drips of paint obviously. 0_0Perfect more for a random dressing up do than wearing every day these union jack lips are super cool and this technique can then be used to 'paint' any type of flag or lip art on to your lips. Be careful when drinking though as these aren't water proof. This is a cheaper option to temporary lip tattoos.
NB: For the picture of Jessie J with her union jack lips search googlepics and you should be able to find it.
Another NB: This won't work if you have chapped lips as it will may be hard to 'paint' onto them and may also irritate them.
Step 1: Lip balm and colourStart with natural lips with nothing on them.
(optional - apply stick concealer to give your lips a base colour and so all pigments aren't affected by the colour of your lips)
First apply a lip balm, chapstick or a tiny amount of vasaline to your lips. This give the powders something to cling to.
Step 2: base colourapply a matte or shimmery white eyeshadow as a base colour all over your lips with a finger or brush
Step 3: Red crossNow take a small lip brush/eyeliner brush and a bright red lip stain/stick/very thick lip gloss/liner and apply in a cross on lips . This is best done with your lips closed so the cross matches up evenly on your top and bottom lip
Step 4: Blue trianglesNow with your lip brush/eyeliner brush put on some dark blue eye shadow and draw triangles in between each line of the red cross - its good to have a reference of the flag to go by when doing this.
( You could finish here but to add more detail carry on)
Step 5: white stripetake your white again - a lot so you over come the dark colours - and draw a diagonal line down the middle of the triangle.
Step 6: Red linedraw a thin red line with your lip brush and lip stick/gloss/pencil/tint etc in the middle of your white line.
