May Sum's Cosmetic Art Sculptures Are Carved into Lipstick

May Sum's cosmetic art uses tubes of lipstick as the canvas for her tiny carvings. On top of the lipsticks, Sum creates miniature busts of iconic females.

You might not think that the 'Woman Power' series could encapsulate such fine details, but Sum works in the smallest of features like Twiggy's individual eyelashes and Anna Wintour's iconic bob. Sum's choice of medium is an interesting one, since talk of beauty and image standards always seem to come into play with influential women. But there isn't any doubt that these bright red lipstick sculptures are knockouts.

Sum also takes custom requests and is able to sculpt a lipstick of your own likeness with a provided photo, as well as other objects like clothing and pets.
