Wearable Flaming Copper Glitter Lips w/ Smokey Matte Shadow

                  Depending on how one sees the term "WEARABLE", this makeup look could go two ways. The first, appealing to those who have a knack for color, thus seeing the bold lips as a "wearable" yet glam factor, and the second, appealing to those who typically do not wear too much color, thus allowing those sorts' of people to blossom out of their comfort zones! I personally am a huge fan of glitter lippies...which I believe isn't hard to tell, hehe. They pair beautifully with textured pieces, and look stunning up close, as well as from afar! IF you're tired of plain ol' bold Spring lips, it's a must to try copper glitter this season!! Copper can be either a golden shade or a fiery option, such as the one I chose. Have fun with it, and gleam on, love bunnies ;)! 

                    For those of you still a bit "EH" on whether to rock your inner glitter gal or not, allow me to ask this question: What is the difference between a bold glitter lip, and a bold matte lip? TEXTURE. Texture can really steal the show, and if done right can be long-lasting, too! I say let your freak flag fly and experiment with fun colors. Maybe not copper today, perhaps just a sheer coating of glitz on the center of your lips. Or a daring ruby red lip! 

Foundation is a custom blend, I produced 
2 parts of coconut oil, and foundation pigment.
L'Oreal Paris - Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow, Iced Latte (highlight)

Jeffree Star Cosmetics - Velour Liquid Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie
Glitterally Cosmetics - Pressed Glitter, Tiger Eyes
Pressed glitters are MUCH easier to apply, and require no glitter glue base!

Anastasia Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade, Auburn
Too Faced Cosmetics - Natural Matte Eye Pallet: Honey Butter (all over color)
Chocolate Cookie (crease, dragged down to the lower lash lines)
Laura Mercier - Caviar Stick Eye Color, Cocoa (waterlines)
L'Oreal Makeup - Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara 
Ciate London - Wonderwand Mascara
I went with TWO mascaras for a plush lash effect! I wasn't feeling the vibe
of applying false eyelashes, since just like shimmer lids, this would deflect
from the main focus, our lippies. 

Minor pointers:
-KEEP the eye makeup extremely warm toned, and be sure to keep the texture MATTE.
 Too much shimmer can take away from the glitter lips!
-Be sure to BLEND, this way the final finish is seamless!
- If you use loose glitter, be sure to apply a glitter glue base beforehand.
-You might feel burning, or a grittiness when you speak. This is typical
of wearing glitter on your lips, however, try not to lick em' to prevent
anything from going inside your mouth intentionally.

                Excuse my allergy snotted microscopic nose hairs, BUT here are the lips up-close! They lasted a good 3 hours before I took this shot. This includes with laughing, smiling, and constant talking!
