Ok so, I'll be the first to say I wouldn't actually wear this out. It's definitely not the most practical of glitter makeup looks. I'm pretty sure I end up eating most of my lipstick throughout the day, so I dread to think how much glitter would get ingested! This is why it's important to use cosmetic grade glitter! I've seen it floating around Instagram and think it looks pretty sick, so thought I would put together a little tutorial anyway. You are definitely a braver person than I am if you dare to wear this out!

Cosmetic Grade Glitter
I ended up doing two glitter lips looks, one silver and one mermaid green/blue. You don't have to put a lipstick on underneath, but it's good to chose a colour that sort of matches with the glitter. For the silver I went with a subtle nude (Urban Decy Vice in Stark Naked). Obviously for the mermaid green glitter lips I had to pick a blue shade (Nyx Wicked Lippies in Sinful).
Once you've applied your chosen lipstick, the glitter is fairly easy to apply. I scooped a finger of Vaseline out of the pot into the lid, poured around a quarter of a teaspoon of glitter on top (lol and my description of measurements), and used a concealer brush to mix them together. Once you've got ya glitter/Vaseline paste, just use the concealer brush to apply to your lip. Easy mate.
Would you ever rock glitter lips? I think it would be a good addition to a festival glitter makeup look.
