Get Lippy With It.

I love a good lip look. I also like trying new trends. Fanciful lips have taken over Instagram and the runways. Some of them are just mind blowing! 

I'm just an amateur but that didn't deter me from giving some of my fav lip trends a go! I love all things sparkly so I drew inspiration from metallic and glitter lip looks.These are some of my favs:

So, I experimented; had some fun and, in my humble opinion, SLAYED! No but for real, creating your own metallic or glitter lip look is actually super easy.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Your fav lipgloss or lipstick. Any colour you love.
  • For metallic lips- a highlighter.
  • For glitter lips- any craft glitter.

Now, don't freak out! I promise craft glitter will not hurt you. It may get everywhere and you may not be able to stop shining for the next week but I promise it's worth it! You will be able to remove your lip look with an oil-based makeup remover or a micellar water.

Here's the video where you can see how Nafeesah and I got the look.



1) Drink lots of water - this will keep you, and your lips, hydrated.

2) Try not to lick your lips - easier said than done- but licking your lips, dries them out. Rather use a lip balm regularly.

3) Use a lipstick that has hydrating ingredients such as beeswax, shea butter, Vitamin E, Apricot Butter. Any one of the HEAN lipsticks are great!

4) Exfoliate only when necessary. You can even DIY your own lip scrub with caster sugar and coconut oil.

5) If you use a Matte lipstick, make sure it doesn't dry out your lips. Exfoliate before and apply a lip balm under your lipstick for maximum hydration. 

6) If you have sensitive lips, stay out of the sun or use a lip balm with an SPF in it to protect them.
