An outstanding red lipstick is an essential component of any beauty junkie's regimen. Makeup maven and tattoo artist Kat Von D is frequently spotted with a crimson pout, but in a recent post to Instagram, she showed off a unique way to incorporate red lip color into her routine.
Above, she used her Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Santa Sangre ($20) to fill in the razor-sharp tails of her brow and cat eye (which were both otherwise black). Then, she carefully patted red glitter on top to create a Fall-forward ombré effect. It would be stunning in any color, too — try it in orange for a more office-friendly Halloween style!
To re-create this look at home, try placing tape along the borders of your eyebrows and cat eye for a template. Then, after applying your liquid lipstick, quickly layer on a vermillion glitter like OCC Cosmetics Glitter in Red ($15) before the lip color dries. You can also use a glitter primer like Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue Glitter Bonding Eye Shadow Primer ($20) as your base, which will help prevent fallout. Then, remove the tape for crisp, sparkling lines.
