Vectoring a Pair of Luscious Lips in Illustrator CS6 from Stock

We think user Sarah did an awesome job with this Luscious Lips Tutorial from instructor Sharon Milne. She commented:

I have fallen in love with this image. I really wanted to color the lips a petrol blue but I couldn’t achieve this. I guess it’s a question of understanding which colors to layer in order to get the right effect. I wanted to try a muted version also. Using a lighter lip color means you can see some of the shapes layered below but I still like the effect. Great tutorial. Thank you Sharon!
