Hello lovelies :)
How was your weekend!!
Mine was hectic.
My today’s post is dedicated to lipsticks and the latest trend.
Lipsticks have always fascinated me. So many colors, textures, finishes, there seems to be no end to the lipstick genre. We have witnessed glossy lips, matte lips, creamy lips, bright lips, soft n*de lips and now comes the trend of metallic and glitter lips.
Glitter lips look so hot these days, it is one of the most sparkling trend I have ever seen.
Everyone, makeup enthusiasts, famous Instagrammers and even Pat Mc Grath have showcased this glittery lipstick trend. Though I agree that glitter lips are too bold and OTT to carry even on Saturday night outs or parties. But then, once in a while, it is good and surely can be carried. Being bold is good!!
And if Pat Mc Grath launches lip kits for glittery lips and they get sold out in seconds, then obviously it deserves some attention from all of us.
So, sometime ago, I decided to do glittery lips but with some twist. Since it is not a trend you can carry daily, I decided for some offbeat colors for this look. I chose GREEN. And this is how my version of glittery lipstick came out –
Products I used –
- Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencil in Jaded
- Eye Kandy Glitter
- Gorgeous Glitzfix
How I did it-
· I applied foundation onto the lips first.
· I sharpened my Colorbar I-glide pencil and lined my lips with it lightly. Then, when I was satisfied with the shape, I intensified it and filled the eyeliner in my already lined lips.
· Then I applied Glitzfix onto my upper lip first and put the glitter on that with help of one of my Morphe brush. I filled glitter in every gap and everywhere. Similarly, on the lower lip.
Glitter made a hell of a difference. And I loved it, much better than plain lips.
I would also like to mention that the glitter didn’t fell. My utmost fear was what if I am gonna eat up atleast half of that glitter or it just flies off everywhere. But thanks to Gorgeous Cosmetics Glitzfix, it did the trick. For the time the glitter was on my lips, say 1-2 hours, it didn’t fell and stayed on my lips. Obviously I didn’t eat or drink anything.
You can try it yourself in various ways, your own version, with your choice of colors and glitters. Use red, orange, pink, plum, magenta, maroon, brown or any color you like plus the glitter and rock your glittery lipstick. Almost all online cosmetic stores are now having these.
Just one advise, don’t forget to use a good quality glue to make the glitter stay in place.
So, don’t wait more. When everybody out there can, so can you. Rock on this Glittery trend on Instagram , facebook and dazzle everyone :).
Time time, rock your sparkling lips and not teeth ;) .
Go out. Be bold. Sizzle.
