The glitter lipstick tutorial you should pin ASAP


The holidays are the perfect time to bust out a glittery statement lip that gives Dorothy’s ruby slippers a run for their money. A sparkly pout is easy to do and will literally make you shine at any cocktail party.

1. First, hydrate lips.

Use a non-oily lip balm like Maybelline Baby Lips.

2. Now carefully outline and fill in lips with a red lip liner.

I used Make Up For Ever’s Waterproof Lipliner Pencil in 8C.

3. Apply a generous coat of bold red cream lipstick.

I used Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in The Red.

4. Next, apply a shiny red gloss to only the center of the top and bottom lip.

This will act as our glitter adhesive. I am using Make Up For Ever’s Lab Shine lip gloss in S8.

5. Now dip your finger or a synthetic brush into a loose glitter.

I am using a magenta glitter, not red. This adds more interest and extra dimension with a slight ombre effect. Press to the center portion of your lips, building the intensity.

Now you’re ready to rock the holidays. Let the compliments rain in.
