We recently showed you how to do a full-on glitter lip, but to be honest, unless you already have some glitter lying around in your house, achieving the sparkly pout look can be quite
Adding glitter on your lips might look pretty and insta-worthy, but bear in mind that they can be tricky to work with. Put on too little, your lips will look incomplete; put on too much and you’ll look like a Halloween costume gone wrong. Plus, if the event you’re wearing it to serves dinner, then be rest assured that food is not the only thing you’ll be digesting that night.
Now, here’s a trick we stumbled upon that’ll save you the time and hassle. It involves 0 glitter but you’ll need to sacrifice some of your fave eye shadow.
Step 1 Put on your lipstick like normal (I used the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in shade 13 Pink In Paris).
Step 2 Pick an eye shadow you like (I used the Lakme 9 To 5 Eye Color Quartet Eye Shadow Desert Rose Palette) and start dabbing it all over your lips.
Ta-daa! It’s super easy since you should already have all the materials on your beauty table. Bonus: The sparkle achieved via this technique tends to last way longer than glitter too! So the next time you need to amp up your look for a last-minute party, you know what to do!
