If you are getting bored with the same ol’ same ol’ makeup routine or makeup palette, here is something a little different you may want to try. Inspired by J.Lo’s music video Goin’In featuring Flo Rida, J.Lo has crystals adhered to her lips, making her lips rather than her eyes the focal point.
This is how StyleBistro achieved the sparkly lip look:
“Lips: Much easier than they look, my darlings! The look requires two steps; 1) lipstick and 2) crystals! To create the perfect lip colour, I mixed together silver glitter, a fuschia lipstick, a purple lipstick and sealed it with Lipcote. The Lipcote isn’t essential if you want to leave your lips glittery, but if you wish to go for the full crystallized effect it is an additional measure to help the pieces adhere.
Once my lip colour felt secure, I applied eyelash glue to the back of Swarovski crystals and applied them to my lips using tweezers. For the best shape, start on the edge of your lips and fill your lips with crystals from the outside in.”
Right girls, off you go to re-create the perfect crystal lip. Make sure you eat before hand though, as swallowing some of those little crystal bits could be dangerous! It is a look that is more for a night on the town minus an elaborate dinner!
