Because everything is better with some sparkle.
With an abundance of lip products these days, it’s safe to say that we are spoiled for choice. This week, we’re giving our fave lippie – be it red, pink or brown tones – their much-needed spruce-up with some shine. As opposed to going full-on with notice-me pouts, we’re opting for the mellow route to dip our toes (or lips, in this case) in the trend. Easy does it!
I’ve always been a big fan of red lipsticks, mainly because I can always count on them to give my overall look that glam factor when I had to attend last-minute events. To take it up a notch, I decided to incorporate glitter into the mix, but with such thick lips, I decided to start on a smaller scale first!
Step 1 Line your lips with a red lip pencil before filling in with a burgundy shade.
Step 2 Dab the glitter all over your lower lips – tweak the amount according to how shiny you want them to be!
Step 3 Use a lip brush to highlight you cupid’s bow with a gold shade – mixed with glitter for extra shine.
And there you have it – a fuss-free and fail-proof way to rock some glitter without being OTT.
