Weaned off the teet too soon? The oral stage, in Freudian psychoanalysis, describes the development of a child during the first 18 months of life. If your appetite is thwarted during this period, you’re apt to find pleasure in stimulations of the mouth. We do too – although our own oral fixation came a little later when we started browsing the underground world of Instagram beauty.
For most of us, make-up started with the lips. And if your goal is to draw focus to that luscious parenthesis of flesh that makes promises of heaven, some of our favourite Instagram accounts have found a way to really give us something to enjoy. Our fascination started simple. Glossy or matte lips. Mostly red. Then came other colours. Then glitter - who doesn’t love a bit of stripper glitter? Now it’s lip porn, the complete explosion and diversification of mouth art… be it with colours, textures, embellishments or piercings, tattoos and grillz. Suck on this.
