5 Ways To Glam Up A Classic Red Lip For The Holidays
Which makeup enthusiast hasn’t considered rocking a glitter lip at one point or another? Glitter can seem intimidating, but it’s an obvious and appropriately festive choice for the holidays. Fortunately, it’s not as hard as you’d think. Simply apply your red lipstick of choice, and then apply an adhesive that’s safe for the lips! You can use a clear lip gloss, eyelash glue, or a makeup adhesive like Ben Nye Glitter Glue ($7.00, CameraReadyCosmetics.com). Now using your finger or a lip brush for more precise application, just tap and press your glitter into place. You may use a glittery eyeshadow for a subtle shimmer, or go for broke with an all-out loose glitter, like the Makeup Forever Star Lit Glitter in the shade Rouge ($20.00, MakeupForever.com). Alternatively, try a one-stop-shop for easy glitter lips with the Ciaté London Glitter Flip ($19.00, Sephora.com). Skip all the steps; just apply the glitter flip, press your lips together and watch the metallic-matte shade transform in seconds into a pout of glittery goodness. No muss, no fuss.
