Lips are usually the last routine in a makeup session and it is only fitting that they should end our aesthetikos series.
The wearing of lipstick was probably pioneered by the ancient Mesopotamian women. The opinion of different societies on lipstick has been as diverse as the shades and textures they come in. Even within the same society lip makeup trends have gone through a cycle of acceptability and rejection. Today lipstick is widely acceptable.

To transform the lips from normal to attention grabbing an artist may use lip balms, lipsticks, glosses and a number of other adjuvant such as glitters, sequins, stickers etc.
