While it might be more daring than your usual look, metallic lips don’t have to be exclusively for make-up experts. You too can try the latest trend with our handy tips for creating your own dramatic (or surprisingly subtle) look.
First, exfoliate your lips beforehand, as the shine is best achieved on smooth lips. Use a lip scrub, or apply a little lip balm and rub gently with a soft toothbrush to help ensure the perfect pout.
Balance the metallic shine with your favourite base matte lipstick. This will create dimension, as well as preserving your look for longer. You can even experiment with shading and toning. Apply a little metallic sheen in the centre of your mouth for a soft shimmer, or use more liberally for a shiny effect.
Still not totally convinced? Why not experiment and try mixing some metallic eyeshadow with clear lip gloss, or apply your favourite colour and pat on a little glittery eyeshadow. Simple.
