This tutorial shows how to draw lipstick in six steps. It provides simple illustrations as examples and gives some quick and easy to follow tips to go along with them.
You can see a preview of the included drawing steps in the example above. In this case the lipstick container will be drawn with no cap on it so that you can see the lipstick itself.
Start the tutorial in pencil and make light lines that are easy to erase in case you make a mistake. You can darken them later on with a black pen or marker.
Step 1 – Draw the Base of the Lipstick Container
Begin by drawing the lower part of the base of the lipstick. Make it’s bottom rounded, give it straight sides and make the top flat.
Step 2 – Draw the Middle Section
On top of the lower part of the base add the narrow middle section. This is the part that the cap snaps onto. You can draw it as small narrow rectangle with very lightly rounded corners on it’s upper end.
Step 3 – Draw the Top
Finally add the top portion of the base that the lipstick slides out of. Draw it’s sides with straight lines and give it a very slightly rounded top.
Step 4 – Draw the Lipstick & Finish the Line Drawing
Coming out of the tube draw the lipstick itself. You can first once again draw it’s sides with straight lines but this time they should eventually start to curve as they go up and create a pointy tip. Afterwards you can outline the little flat section that actually brushes up against the lips when applying the lipstick (as shown in the example).
When you have everything outlined you can trace over your drawing with a black pen, marker or darker pencil lines. Just make sure that you are happy with the way things look before doing so.
Step 5 – Add Color
To color the lipstick you can use any medium you like (paints, markers, colored pencils, etc…). In this case the lipstick itself will be red but the little flat part near it’s top will be slightly lighter (a little closer to pink) to show that it’s reflecting some light. The the upper and mid sections of the base will be grey. The bottom of the base will be a very dark grey (you can also just color this part black).
You can of course also use totally different colors if you prefer.
Step 6 – Add Shading
To make the drawing look a little less flat/more interesting you can give the lipstick some very simple shading. Add this along one side of each of it’s sections as shown in the example. An easy way to add it is to once again just use a regular pencil. If you made the bottom of the base black then of course you don’t need to add a shadow to that part.
Once done you should have a finished drawing.
This tutorial shows how to draw fairly generic looking lipstick that is not particularly complex. Hopefully you haven’t had too much trouble following with the examples.
