Artist Paige Thompson stumbled across some Halloween make-up she had as a child and began to paint colourful and cute animals on her mouth before photographing them. Video is below.

She started with a bumblebee, then a fox, and as her menagerie grew she christened them ‘Animal-ipsticks’. Paige takes half an hour in front of a mirror to paint each creation, starting with a base colour and adding details such as stripes, eyes and ears. So far Paige has created a bumblebee, black cat, fox, crab, caterpillar, hippo, chameleon and panda, sticking to a basic pallette of red, blue, yellow, green, black and white. Her childhood set of water-based paints came with a small brush but she has since bought other brushes to allow her to get better detail. But she refuses to spend money on expensive branded make-up.

     Paige, from Texas, was inspired to try her own lipstick art after admiring the face-painting of other artists.
     ‘I had virtually nothing to do around the house, so I tried my luck with some old Halloween face paint that we had used since I was a kid,’ she said.
     ‘My first animal-lipstick, the bumblebee, wasn’t even formed as an idea until I painted my lips yellow and added some random black stripes. It was then apparent that a face was needed.
     ‘I thought the result was cute, so I made a few more. I never imagined so many people would love these photos.’

Paige continued: ‘I chose to do animals because I had already done the bumblebee, so I thought I could expand upon the animal kingdom.
