Head-to-toe sequins doesn't need to be the only statement you make this party season. 

Try A Metallic Lip

These opulent lips pair perfectly with festive glittery party dresses. Flecks of shimmer amp up the drama, while the shine lights up the entire face. If you want to push the look ever further, layer a gloss on top too, to add even more depth.

Try a Vinyl Lip 

High-shine lips can have the same impact as walking into a room in this season’s must-have vinyl knee highs. But be warned, they can be high-maintenance. Using a matte product underneath can really help to lock the gloss on.

Try A Glitter Lip 

Nothing says Christmas like a little sparkle, so why not let your lips do the talking. Apply a base color in your chosen shade of glitter and then gently dab a square brush coated with glitter onto your lips, gradually building the coverage to choice.

Try A Velvet Lip 

For a less maintainacne lip and the perfect contrast to your otherwise sequin-soaked get-up, a super-rich, matte velvet is a surefire winner. Layers of matte powder eyeshadow provide intensity and neutralize any shine, but apply them slowly to avoid the colour falling onto your chin. Also, prep lots of matte lip balm to counteract cement-lips.

Try A Leather Lip 

Break all rules and match your lip texture to your heels or handbag with this tactile leather looks. The slightly rubberized texture and gradient of shades adds edge to a standard matte lip. Smudge the lip line with your finger too for an extra effect.
