How To: Glitter Lips

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you a really easy way to achieve a glittery, sparkly, crazy lip look. I literally used about 4 products in total and I thought it turned out pretty cool. So here’s how to do it:

  1. Apply concealer all over the lips and set with a translucent face powder. This cancels out the natural colour of your lips and creates a clear, blank canvas and also ensures that the liquid lipstick you apply on top applies true to colour and comes out more vibrant.
  2. Apply any dark, cool toned, matte liquid lipstick. I used the NYX Liquid Suede in Stone Fox which is a cool toned grey.
  3. Carve out the lip line with concealer to ensure that they look neat and that the lines are sharp and crisp. Whenever I apply liquid lipstick it goes all over the place so this is the best trick to correct any mistakes.
  4. Apply either a glitter primer or eyelash glue on to the lips with a flat brush and immediately apply the glitter on top with the same brush. I find that it’s easier to work in sections, applying the primer/glue to a small section of the lips followed by the glitter, as this ensures that the glue doesn’t dry before you are able to apply the glitter. I used the DUO Clear Lash Adhesive and the NYX Glitter Brilliants in 06.
  5. Add a rhinestone in the centre of your bottom lip for extra effect 😉 I got them from Claire’s and it looks like I have a piercing! (you don’t have to do this)

And that’s it! I don’t know if I made any sense at all, I felt like I was just rambling, but hopefully you learned something?!

Thank you for reading,
