Want shimmery lips for the holidays?You probably have your fair share of holiday parties to attend this year, and while you may have the perfect outfits all picked out, do you know how you're going to do your makeup? One thing you may want to keep in mind is that shimmer is always a hit during this time of year. So why not get creative with it on your lips?

While you could use a shimmery lip gloss and consider yourself done, it might be more fun to take it to the next level by making your lips even more noticeable. After all, bright hues and funky effects are trendy these days!

The Beauty Department recommends creating a foiled lip, which gives your pout a chic metallic effect. You'll need a clear lip gloss and a sparkly mineral powder like Too Faced – Glamour Dust Glitter Pigment. Just apply the lip gloss as usual, then pour out a little bit of the powder and use your finger to dab it on your top and bottom lips.

The source suggests pairing these cool lips with a smokey eye or, if you want your look to be more understated, a simple champagne shimmer with a hint of liner and mascara.
