Glitter for Grown-Ups!

glitterForGrownUps

Glitter is best when emphasized in one area. For example “If your eye shadow has glitter, skip the flecks in your gloss.”

Makeup Stylist for the Stars, Janice Daoud’s pick is Nars’ Andy Warhol Soft Touch Pencil ($24) in Silver Factory. The brand’s soft pencils are easy to use and layer. “Apply to the lid then add any light-reflecting shadow on top,” she says. M.A.C.’s Pressed Pigment ($21) in Deeply Dashing turns the silver warm and subtle, while Laura Geller’s Baked Eyeshadow ($24) in Stainless Teal is party-ready. Want more options? Lancome’s Color Design Palette ($49) in Violet Magnetique boasts five colors and built-in directions for building a vivid smoky eye.

Hard Candy might not be packing plastic heart rings anymore, but its devotion to sparkle is still unmatched. Try rimming your eyes with their Take Me Out Eyeliner ($5) in Truffle or Handcuffs for a light-catching cat-eye. Not wild enough? Sephora’s Deco Daze Glitter Eyeliner Appliques ($5) are even easier to apply and come in gold, silver, and purple.

If you’d rather stick to flecks of gold on your lips, there’s no shortage of glitter-infused gloss on the market. Dolce & Gabbana’s Ultra-Shine Lipgloss ($29) in Pink Diamond looks purple but goes on clear, while Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer Lip Gloss ($23) in Oyster turns frosty. Le Metier de Beaute’s Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss ($32) in Orange Juiced does deliver a sheer orange tint. If those aren’t actually glittery enough, take the Violent Lips plunge. Their Temporary Lip Tattoos ($7) come in almost every color imaginable (even ombre!) and should stay on all night. There are three per pack, just in case.

Get on the glitter nail polish bandwagon. These are some sparkly picks: Deborah Lippmann’s Nail Lacquer ($18) in Let’s Go Crazy, Butter London’s Nail Polish ($14) in Fiddlesticks. Want chunkier glitter? Topshop’s Nails ($10) in Beleza has silver flecks in blue polish while China Glaze’s Nail Polish ($5) in Techno is as holographic as it sounds.

XOXO
