This Unexpected Glitter Trend Is Here To Stay

Ever since Gigi Hadid graced the Fendi runway with a glittering, outer-space pout, the beauty world’s collective obsession with glitter has been spark(l)ed. Bold and beautiful, this trend is not for shrinking violets – a glitter lip demands attention so, will you be brave enough to work the latest trend? 

Like you’ve been gorging on glitter-dust doughnuts, your lips should be evenly coated with sprinkles. To recreate Naomi’s chic, sophisticated lip look (seen below), prep your pout with stay-put liquid lipstick – we swear by Huda Beauty’s kiss-resistant {Liquid Mattes} – then while the colour’s still just tacky, dip a dampened cotton bud in shimmer and roll all over the lips until they’re evenly coated.

Violet Voss’s {Sparkles} come in three grades – {Sophisticated}, {Super} and max-impact {Disco Ball}. We *HEART* the {Super Sparkles} in ‘Rose Glitter’ (the ruby slippers of the make up world), but try a light dusting of ‘Lily’, ‘Electric Coraline’ or ‘Champagne Kisses’ for a truly dazzling effect.

Or, if you’re looking for dancefloor drama, lace your lips with Beauty Bakerie’s micro-fine {Sprinkles} – the ‘Purple’ ones are perfect when you’re feeling Grace Jones-esque. Just prep your pout with {Sprinkles Glue}, then pack with pigment for a lip look that rivals the disco lights.

Want something a little less outré? Metallic {lipstick} is the perfect ‘halfway house’. Beauty Bakerie’s {Metallic Lip Whips} come in a spectrum of stunning colours and will. not. budge until you want them to. Or try one of Jouer’s limited edition {Anniversary Long-Wear Lip Crèmes}. We’re in love with ‘Cayanne’ – a bold glitter-flecked shade that’s guaranteed to mesmerise.
