First, apply liquid matte lipstick to your lips. Let the product dry, and then apply a matte lipstick with a metallic effect only in the central part of the lips. Feather sharp borders. If you don't have a metallic lipstick, it doesn't matter. You can use the usual one, and powder your lips with a highlighter with the finish.
Don't worry, you don't need to pierce anything here - you just need to create the appearance of a piercing. The easiest way is to paint your lips with a monotone matte lipstick, wait until it dries and draw a vertical strip of metallic matte lipstick in the center of your lower lip. More meticulous is to use rhinestones. To get started, apply a long-lasting matte lipstick on your lips (glossy will prevent the glue from sticking to your lips), wait 60 seconds for the product to dry, and move on to the rhinestones. Get some rhinestones, false eyelash glue, and eyebrow tweezers. Squeeze a small amount of glue onto the back of your hand and use tweezers to blot the rhinestones into it one by one. Along the same vertical line, place the rhinestones in the center of the lower lip.
You don't need the skills of a real artist for this design, just stock up on matte lipstick, lip decals (the most compelling ones are done by Violent Lips) and a dash of patience. In stages, everything is similar: apply matte lipstick, wait until it dries, glue on the tattoos - and voila, million dollar lip art is ready!
