This week is a little different. I’m not copying someone else or trying out a tutorial. Today I’m just trying out a trend that I’ve been itching to try for absolutely ages. GLITTER LIPS!
Now, of course the main reason I’ve been wanting to do these is because of the insane amount of sparkle, but I also think they’re a great way to glam up a look you might have been wearing all day and are going to continue wearing into the night.
For my look, I used a purple lipstick from Makeup Revolution on my bottom lip and a candy pink lipstick from Maybelline on my top lip. I topped these with NYX’s Glitter Primer before using a tiny brush to dab on the corresponding glitter colour. You can either stop there like I did, or you can add a clear gloss on top for a bit of added shine and moisture.
Now I’m not going to lie, whilst I love the look and sparkle, I probably couldn’t wear this for long. The glitter makes your lips dry and itchy and it will be incredibly difficult to eat or drink without getting a sprinkling of glitter too. Licking your lips is also a big no-no! But they’re definitely fun and most definitely glam and you can experiment with hundreds of colours as long as you have the glitter to match. You can even do ombre looks. There’s loads of possibilities so get creative and try it out!
