About Art of the Lips

Featuring lip art worthy of a museum, this collection showcases the magic Vlada Haggerty creates with lipstick.

From opulent to optical illusion, Vlada’s art is a blend of make-up and magic that transform her lips into canvases. MUA royalty, her work is washed across the internet, lips dripping and bedazzled, transformed by talent and a vision that’s helped shape the beauty industry.

Featuring over 200 photographs of Vlada’s work, Art of the Lip is a sumptuous tome to flip through and marvel at the minute, painted details on her lips in each photo. Gloss, lipstick, sequins and jewels transform Vlada’s skin in hundreds of different images, with looks inspired by nature, jewellery, pop culture and more.

Much more than just lipstick, Vlada’s art is a showcase of makeup’s power and an artist’s innovation.
