Neea Kuurne is the mastermind behind the lip art Instagram account that will take your breath away. Whether you find yourself in awe over the stunning flower petal lips, or disturbed by the bright red mouth wrapping around a bloody razor blade, Kuurne will get a reaction out of you and that is her main goal.

The Helsinki-based makeup artist openly expresses her distaste towards over-edited Instagram makeup pages and states on her account that she doesn’t retouch at all. “It’s hard to know what is actually true and what isn’t. As a makeup artist viewing these photos, I couldn’t tell if the makeup was good or not because the photos had been so overly retouched.”

Being able to differentiate between the skilled stroke of a makeup artist and the perfecting swipe of a facetune app goes a long way, not only in MUA credibility but also in sending a positive message. “I want my work to reflect that it is okay not to be ‘perfect’ and that it is beautiful to be different – people should be proud to be unique.”
