Johanna Adams is a makeup artist based in New York City who has taken to creating art on lips that is inspired by natural crystal formations.

The incredible pieces of body art are posted to Instagram and show off the use of everything from glitter to thickly layered glosses to recreate the same texture and sheen that can be seen on rocks, minerals and other precious stones. Each of the inspiring looks takes about an hour to create, which is fitting, seeing that there are plenty of layers and intricate details involved in creating the finished products.

While the artful lip looks won't be adopted by the average woman for daily wear, it would be easy to imagine these crystalized lip looks being the focus of an avant-garde fashion or beauty editorial.
