Ring in the new year in style with a mouth full of glitter! Created by YouTube beauty vlogger Ling of Lip Stalker, this pretty pink lip look is perfect for the holiday and oh-so-easy to recreate. First, prep lips with lip balm. Then lightly color them in with a nude pink lip pencil. Next, Ling recommends applying a rosy pink lip tint followed by some fuchsia lipstick. Break out a pink glittery gloss now and use a dabbing motion to get the most glitter on. Finally, grab some cosmetic grade pink glitter and use a lip brush to apply.

YouTube beauty vlogger Cheezz12345 says the most important thing to keep in mind when recreating this look is the color combination. If the two colors you choose don't look good together, it will throw the whole look off.
