This drawing lesson will help you draw a cartoon lipstick! Probably the most popular cosmetic product available for women, the lipstick has been around for many centuries.
But did you know that a version for men also exist under the name "manstick" (mostly used in theaters). However, don't worry! We will concentrate on the women's version for this tutorial!
Start your drawing by sketching three rectangles. The one on the bottom should be larger while the one on top must be thinner.
Next, add a small rectangle on top of the first and second rectangles drawn previously.
Then, work on the outline of your illustration to give a slight 3D perspective to the object. You can also sketch the top of the lipstick a little rounder (to make it look like it has been used a little!).
Continue working on your artwork by adding some colors to your creation. The bottom of the lipstick should be black and the middle part golden. For the lipstick itself, just choose a red tone (preferably dark).
To make the drawing more interesting, let's add some shadows and some reflections on it! Notice the white line on the right. This one is starting near the top. On the second part of the lipstick, this line is a little more on the right. And finally, on the bottom, this line is a little more on the right again.
Finish your drawing by adding a little transparency to the shadows and reflections. Just do that by drawing over the shadows with the colors you have used to create the lipstick! Cool! You've just created a nice tube of lipstick in six easy steps! Continue practicing and good luck!
