Forget glitter lips, this party season it’s all about glitter lip liner.
When Pat McGrath launched her glitter lip kits earlier this year she caused a frenzy to rival the sell-out success of Kylie Jenner. McGrath’s lip collection, Labs Lust 004, enables you to coat your lips in glitter much like the catwalk look seen on Bella Hadid at Versace. The finish is super sparkly and in no way subtle.
For the minimalists among us who found this look a little OTT, we have an alternative solution. Glitter lip liner is a perfect way to pay homage to this shimmering look without going the whole hog.
Much like the name suggests, this new trend involves lining the very edge of your lips in glitter. To create the look at home you’re going to need a steady hand, patience and your product of choice.
If you managed to nab yourself a Pat McGrath kit you can use the glitter in that with a fine brush, or if not MAC’s range of Loose Eyeshadow Glitters are a great dupe. Alternatively, any glitter liquid eyeliner should do the trick. Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner - available in seven shades - is a good starting point.
If you’re looking for a fresh yet elegant twist on our party makeup, this is it.
