You can also create your own glitter stamps out of makeup sponges. Cut the design you like out of the sponge and use it to press on perfectly.
Pout it Out
The trick is to combine your favourite matte lipstick with a glitter glaze. It’s that easy. For long lasting results, apply a lip liner followed by the matte lip colour of your choice. Then, slick on a sparkly lip gloss in the same colour. If you are feeling cheeky, make it a contrasting glitter.
Alternatively, pat on your conventional glitter combined with a lip sealer to lock it in place.
