These are the best Instagram accounts to satisfy your oral fixation

Suck on this

The brainchild of best friends Jules and Gebs, @RavveBeauty is the Instagram account dedicated to showcasing and celebrating all that is disturbing, disarming and alluring when it comes to underground beauty. Doubled up contact lenses, iridescent face shimmer, obscure facial piercings, heads shaved to look like flowers in full bloom,unibrows, no brows, wiggly brows. Lending us their well-honed eye, here they pick their top beauty Instagrams of the month.

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.

Here are some accounts that will put your money where their mouth is… selected by @ravvebeauty

Dolly Cohen

The queen of grillz creates mouth guards that look equally fierce and feminine for the most powerful women in show business.

Kelseyanna Fitzpatrick

The authority for lip art that’s both goth and glam.


The home of insta-lip sensations. Her iconic multi-pierced glossy lips are a must-see.

Selena Johnson

Who knew braces could look so fresh?


Soft vulnerable flesh and sharp metallic objects. Often hard to watch, these Russian lips are not for the faint of heart.

Adwoa Aboah

The bejewelled-toothed Gurls Talk activist and model is the smile of a generation.


Turns out, the sexiest pout on earth is in Korea. Believe us, all those innocent shades of baby pink won’t stop you from creeping.

Neea Kuurne

Here, the erotic potential of the lips in full disclosure and with no retouching. Take a look and go find a mirror: are you ready for your own closeup?
