This Technique Makes Your Lips Look Stone-Cold Awesome

This stand-out lip look is only for those with a rock-hard appetite for beauty-based adventure. But if you've vowed to make 2017 a year of fearless exploration (and it should be), mastering our marble technique should be the first stop — your pout will look completely marble-ous. It's easier than you'd think, plus out-of-the-box and unexpectedly elegant. Watch the video above for the full technique, and try it yourself using the steps below.

Step 1.
Paint a white lip cream along your top and bottom lips with a fine brush.

Step 2.
With a fine tip brush, sketch gray cream flecks along the outer corners of your lips, then soften with lines of white. These are the veins in the marble. Apply as few — or as many — as you see fit.

Step 3.
Add a few darker gray lines and squiggle on top, then blend with white.

Step 4.
Outline your lips in light gray.
