The Cupid's Bow lips of the 1930s were more elongated and less pouty than those from the previous decade. Lipstick colors of the '30s were also not as vampy red as ones from the '20s; they ranged from brighter pinkish red to straight up red. The 1930s lips were called the Crawford Lips, also known as the Cruller Lips.
For this tutorial, I have chosen Joan Crawford's picture as an example. Remember, each person's lips are different from others. The goal here isn't to get Joan Crawford's lips, but to learn how to draw your lips following the trend of the 1930s.
How to achieve the look:
- Lip brush.
- Lip balm.
- Lipstick -- I used Revlon's "Cherries in the Snow."
Step 1: Make three marks on your lips, as shown in the picture. Notice that the two marks on the sides go just outside of the lip line.
Step 2: Connect the marks. In the areas that I've marked with the black dots, stay within your lip line. For the blue areas, go just outside of your lip. Also, stay within your natural lip line for the bottom lip.
Step 3: Fill in.
