{beauty board} red glitter lips

I absolutely loved the red glitter lips that Pat McGrath created for the A/W 2016 Atelier Versace runway; and while it seems completely outrageous to rock such a look year-round, the holidays seem the perfect time to try it on for size, amiright? Though McGrath actually created a lip kit featuring everything needed to achieve a shimmering smooch, it's loooong sold out at Sephora, but still easily attainable with the right tools and a few tips {all of which I'm featuring below}.

GLITTER Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Cosmetic Glitter in RED and BLAYLOCK {$15.00}

INTENSITY e.l.f. Cosmetics Makeup Lock & Seal {$3.00}

LINER NYX Cosmetics Slim Lip Pencil in CURRANT {$3.49}

LIPSTICK MILANI Amore Mattes Lip Crème in DEVOTION {$7.99}

To Get The Look: Outline your lips with a blackened plum liner {this one is a great dupe for MAC's Nightmoth}. Mix the red and black glitter together in a small plate or cup, and place it to the side. Swipe the matte red liquid lipstick onto your top lip, then place e.l.f. Cosmetics' Makeup Lock & Seal onto the tip of a small makeup brush {the one included with the product is fantastic}, dip it into the glitter, and dab all over your top lip {do this before the lipstick sets}. The Makeup Lock & Seal intensifies the glitter and color, and helps to keep it in place longer. Repeat on the bottom lip, and voila! Runway-approved shimmering perfection!

ooh fun idea! This would be great for a more "formal" Christmas gathering, if you will.


Great selections. I am such a fan of that Milani lip colour. xx/M
