Have you ever wondered where and how lipstick was created? I mean don't get me wrong, we all know why someone would create a substance on a stick to perk up the color of a woman's lips. But I have always wondered when lipstick was created and did it always come in a stick? As you know lipstick now a days is made from a combination of oils, minerals, pigments, waxes and other agents that give this make-up sensation its texture and color. Now I'm no expert on make-up or even lipstick for that matter so naturally I had to do some research on lipstick in general. From what I have gathered lipstick was in use more than five thousand years ago back when women used to crush jewels and than applied to the lips and sometimes around the eyes as well. We have always associated the use of make-up with the Egyptian woman because they are the ones that have been recorded with having black thick lining around the eyes and rose colored cheeks and lips. What the Ancient Egyptians did (like Cleopatra) was take a specific type of beetle called the “carmine beetle” and crushed them. What this did was extract a reddish liquid or substance that would turn lips red. Later on down the road they found a way to even add a shimmer to their lips color by using an extracted substance found in fish scales. As you can imagine, lipsticks five thousand years ago didn't come in a tube or a jar, instead they were extracted and placed in shallow bowls or plates. Lipstick really took appeal to woman when female actresses colored their lips in black and white films. Today woman have the pleasure of coloring their lips with many different kinds of lipsticks and lip glosses that are available on the market today. The most popular color of all lipsticks that have ever been placed on the market is still and always will be candy apple red. With this tutorial you will learn how to draw red lipstick step by step with easy to follow instructions that are detailed and easy to read. I hope you all like this lesson on this fashion object that girls will always have a need for. I will be back in a bit with more drawing fun so stick around folks.

How to Draw Lipstick

how to draw red lipstick step 1

STEP 1.

As you can see this is a very simple drawing tutorial. This first step all you will do is draw two parallel lines in a horizontal position to form the outline of the tube that the lipstick sits in and the top is a bit smaller for the red lipstick itself.

STEP 2.

Now what you will do here is start shaping out the tip of the lipstick as shown by making a dip at the tip so that the stick sits on the lips comfortably. You will then shape out the tubing itself and them move to the next step.

In this last step you will draw the band that wraps around the tube which also stops the cap of the lipstick from squishing the make-up it's self. You will then erase all the guidelines that you drew in step one.
