The rhinestone lip trend seems to be on fire lately and if you’re thinking of jumping onto the bandwagon then we’re going to make your life a lot easier. With this quick and easy tutorial you can get rhinestone lips at home in no time. Bejeweled lips are a great idea for photo shoots, costume parties or events where you want a super dramatic look.
What you need:
Rhinestones (You can use flatback rhinestones or nail rhinestones, depending on what you can purchase cheaper and more easily).
Eye lash glue
Lipstick and lip primer (Choose a lip product shade that matches the color of the rhinestones you plan on applying)
What to do:
Ensure that your lips are clean and exfoliated and then prime them. Then apply lipstick in a shade that resembles the color of the rhinestones you will be using. If you don’t have the exact shade, mix and match colors until you get the desired look. To add sparkle to the look apply some lip gloss or glitter to your lips.
Place your rhinestones on a flat surface and squeeze out some glue on a clean sheet of paper. Using the tweezers dip a rhinestone into the glue and place it onto your lip. You can apply a little pressure using a damp cotton bud to stick the stone properly. Start from the edges of your lips and work your way inwards. Alternatively you can dot the glue directly from the tube onto your lips. Allow each dot to dry for thirty seconds before you use tweezers to stick a rhinestone onto it. You can’t move rhinestones once the glue is fully dry so if you make a mistake correct it immediately- they can be pushed around a little while the glue is drying but once it is glue the stones can’t be moved too much.
If you’re feeling creative you can even create a rhinestone design (such as a heart shape) instead of covering the entire lip.
Once you have covered your lips allow the glue to dry for a few minutes and then you can go about your day looking like you just walked off a runway.
