Andrea Reed’s work does more than just give lip service to doing great make-up. Her unique style is taking the fashion world AND the art world by storm.
The Canadian born artist is truly turning makeup into objects de arte’ by replicating famous paintings and more on the mouths of lucky models! The recreation of Katsushika Hokusai’s Great Wave Off Kanagawa and copies of Scottish tartans is just a couple of her mini masterpieces!

Her lipstick art not only reflects works by artistic greats, but she has mastered the technique of tromp le oil, creating photo realistic creations like leaves, a dripping honeycomb, fall leaves, or a spring garden all on her subjects mouths!
