How to Wear Metallic Lipstick

Posted by LiveGlam on Dec 11, 2019

How to Wear Metallic Lipstick

The metallic makeup trend and metallic lipsticks are making a comeback (uh, hello 1996!) and we’re not mad at it! If you’ve never worn metallic lipstick or you’re not too sure how to wear metallic lipstick, you’re at the pout-fect place because we’re showing you how. Move over matte lippies, these metallic lipsticks are comin’ in hot!

Not a fan of metallic lipsticks? Even the most metallic-adverse babes will change their mind after applying our new satin-metallic lippie, Glam AF! Trust us, it’s love at first swipe 😉.

How Do You Wear Metallic Lipsticks

Because metallic lipsticks are bold AF, make sure you prep your lips so you don’t accentuate any dead skin or texture. Whip out your Hey Sugar lip scrub and get to scrubbin’! Don’t have one? Head on over to our LiveGlam Shop page and treat yo’ self with our Hey Sugar Lip Scrub Trio for the softest lips ever (we would hurry if we were you because they won’t last long).  Now that your lips are prepped and ready, follow these steps for the perfect metallic pout:

Metallic Lip Steps


  1. Prevent any feathering by lining your lips with a shade that closely matches your lippie. You can also use a slightly darker lip liner if you want an ombre lip effect.
  2. Apply your metallic lipstick with the applicator or use a lip brush for some precise lines.
  3. Once you’ve applied your lipstick, you can clean up around your lips for crisp and clean edges!

Okay, so now you know how to get the perfect metallic lip, but when should you wear metallic lipstick?! The answer is going to shock you… you can wear metallic lipstick whenever you want, sis! If you want an everyday metallic lip, opt for shades like nudes, deep browns (we’re talking about you Glam AF!) and soft pinks. Going to a party? Grab a bold shade like Vanity Furr or Treble Maker to really make a statement!

Metallic Lipstick Makeup Looks

If you’re new to the metallic makeup trend, here are some looks you can recreate to ease into it (without looking like a cyborg). Don’t own any metallic lipsticks? You can turn any lipstick into a metallic lipstick with a little highlighter!

Nude Metallic Lips

If you’re afraid to go all out with a red metallic lip look, try a nude metallic lipstick instead! Pair it with your everyday eye or a pair of falsies and you’re all set.

Rose Gold Lips

If you wanna go a little out of your comfort zone, swipe on a rose gold metallic lip. Match your lip with a warm half cut-crease to catch some stares everywhere you go!
