If Halloween is the one time of year a girl can dress like Regina George does at Halloween and no one can say anything about it, then the holidays are the glitter equivalent. During the festive season, we think it’s acceptable to practically bathe in glitter because let’s be real, nothing screams festive spirit more than a glittery red lip, especially when you’re standing underneath the mistletoe. So to get you looking as festive as you feel, here’s some major glitter inspo you need to recreate. These looks are to-die-for…
Is there anything more festive than a glossy gold glitter lid? We think not. We love this bronzed goddess vibe! We’d top it off with a ton of highlighter, and of course, a red lip.
We know the prospect of slaying a glitter lip may be a little intimidating but we promise it’ll set your smile on fire!
How to: For the perfect glitter lip, start by applying a matte base color so the glitter glue can stick to it, like the Huda Beauty Liquid Mattes, $20. To make sure there’s no glitter fall out, dust around the outline of your lips with some translucent powder. Then gently dab a thin layer of glitter glue using a flat, angled brush (our fav glue is the NYX Profession Makeup Glitter Prime, $7), then gently press the glitter on top. Dust away the excess translucent powder and finish with a setting spray (mouth closed!). If full-on glitter is too much, then we have the perfect cheat for you with our new Huda Beauty Metallic Power Bullet Collection that gives the illusion of pure glitter, without the mess or gritty feeling – you’re welcome!
If you want to embrace a more grown-up glitter look, then this vibe is perfect. The combination of brown and gold shimmers are so rich and warm, making it the ideal look for your office party.
Why limit your glitter placement to your eyelids when you can add a touch (or a lot) of sparkle to your pout too. Somehow, this look works perfectly; it still looks sophisticated yet sassy AF. We’re screenshotting this for our NYE lookbook, stat! Coincidentally, NYE is the name of our gorgeous red Metallic Power Bullet Lipstick, $20!
We’re SO obsessed with this look, the chunky glitter adds some major couture vibes to this smokey eye!
