The only reason I’m slightly okay with summer being over is the fact that FALL is almost here and it’s my favorite season! What does this mean? Pumpkin spiced everything, my birthday month, cozy fashion, and of course new makeup trends to play with. Speaking of playing! My talented gal pal Lyndsay Zavitz (she did my wedding makeup!), came over last Sunday to test Pat Mcgrath’s new LUST004 Flesh kit. We thought it would be fun to share this glitter lip tutorial with you – enjoy!
I know what you’re thinking. Can you really put glitter on your lips without it shedding and getting messy?! What’s the trick and is this actually legit??
We started with a clean lip and then outlined the lips with “Spice” from MAC. Next, Lynds applied one of the matte lipsticks that comes in the LUST 004 kit and used her fingertips to blend in for an even finish. Then, with her finger she carefully dipped it into the glitter (we mixed both shades that come in the Lust 004 kit), and I noticed she gently pressed it over my lips. Gently smear the product if necessary but definitely start with a tapping motion. We added a few coats!
I think the trick is in the matte lipstick that keeps the glitter locked in place. I love glitter so I’m a huge fan of this product, however, if you love licking your lips – good luck with that! I don’t recommend this as an everyday look, but it’s fun for special occasions (and selfies)!
Pat Macgrath’s new lip collection comes in more colors and is officially available online today. Last time I checked it was selling out fast so let me know if any of you get your hands on it! Don’t forget to take those selfies using the hashtag #SazanInspired so I can see your finished look! 🙂
Are you a fan of this glittery lip and do you think it’s going to be a trend to watch this fall? Sound off!
