It’s official: Glitter lips are everywhere. In the past few months alone, we've seen them on Naomi Campbell
at the MTV Music Awards, models at Versace
, and even on the seemingly glitter-reformed Kesha
. Within the fashion world, there's one woman responsible for the sudden influx in disco pouts: Pat McGrath (or Mother Makeup
, as she's sometimes called). The esteemed makeup maestro introduced her already sold-out Lust 004 Lipstick Kit
on Naomi — and now, it appears as if the trend has exploded, like a 2014 glitter bomb
And while the disco-friendly look may seem recent, glitter lips actually have roots that go way back. Burlesque dancers have long considered them a stage-performance staple; drag queens have rocked sparkle-packed lips for nearly as long. Ahead, a brief history of the glittery mouth, plus a few tips on how to get one yourself — sold-out Lip Kits be damned.
