Lipsticks are the quickest and the easiest way to express yourself, and glitter lips are the hottest makeup trend! Here’s all you need to know about them!
Hey gorgeous! Whether you’re going to office or a party, lipstick is always the last thing we add to our look. It completes the outfit, gives it its uniqueness, and can completely change the look of it!
That’s why every girl, no matter what age, loves keeping a track of what’s new and what’s not in the world of lip colors and trends. And the newest trend to obsess over in 2016 is glitter lips. From L’Oreal to M.A.C., this trend has been filling my Instagram feed, and today, I knew I had to write about it!
Move over plain ol’ boring lip shades, glitter lips are the newest trend in the market! Let’s take a look at how to pull off this trend!
The Glitter Lips + Metallic Combo
For a bold and futuristic look, pair your glitter with a metallic lipstick. Match it to create an iridescent palette!
Take a look at these gold glitter lips by @de_maria posted by L’Oreal, which is a great idea for a party, fashion show or whenever you really wanna make a statement!

Glitter in the Center
Use glitter just in the center of the lips for a plumper, statement effect if you don’t want too-much glitter.
Glitter Lips: What to Avoid
I would avoid too much glitter so that it doesn’t go on the lips and ruin my smile! I would also avoid it spreading all around my mouth. Now whether that’s practical is worth a try!
