Sequins and glitter are always the default ingredient in holiday outfits. But who wants to show up on New Year's Eve to find six other women also wearing sequined dresses? Shake things up this year by incorporating shimmer in another place—your lips. Here's how to do it without feeling like a kid playing dress up.

Step 1: Apply a glitter primer to your lips to ensure maximum hold.

Step 2: Swipe on your favorite lip gloss. It doesn’t matter if it’s totally clear, bright cherry red or something in between; they’ll all end up looking equally foxy.

Step 3: It’s time for the main event. Fine glitter, like this NYX Pigment (#obsessed), is the key to becoming your most glittery self while still keeping your lips kissable. Use a makeup brush to apply as much or as little as you’d like.
