THE LOOK OF WOW: GLITTER GLAM FROM DAY-TO-NIGHT
The trick to glitter is using it in elegance, not excess. Apply too much and you might end up looking like an extra in an ‘80s rock video. However, with a little care and a lot of love, glitter can be classy, graceful and very flattering. (Who doesn’t love a little sparkle?)
Start your morning with some subtle sparkle. For a lovely day look, neutral colours are your go-to, like metallic shimmers in taupe and brown shades. Revlon PhotoReady Primer + Shadow + Sparkle, Metropolitan offers limitless looks within one nude palette to make your eyes the envy of the office. For a pretty, yet minimal makeup look, it’s also a good idea to apply a shade that matches the hue of your eyes.
As darkness falls, bring out the drama with a glittering smoky look in sultry blacks, deep pinks and purples. Night is also the perfect time to have fun with eyeliner. While bold blacks are a forever favourite, we’re excited about the shiny possibilities with Annabelle Kohl Eyeliner in Charcoal. This silvery and sultry colour adds a touch of metallic flair for a night out on the town.
THERE’S MORE TO GLITTER THAN JUST EYE CANDY…
Go ahead and get a little cheeky; bare cheekbones are begging for some glow. A light dusting of shimmery highlighter will give your cheeks a pop of shine. Joe Fresh Highlighter Powder is soft to the touch and easy to apply. It’s also perfect for highlighting newbies as it will make their sparkle subtle and sweet.
Glitter can even make a sculpted brow that much more fabulous with a highlighted brow bone. Simply sweep your favourite sparkly eyeshadow underneath your brow for a reflective look.
Now you know the truth about glitter. It dazzles on magazine covers, on the silver screen… and especially on your fabulous features. Now go forth and sparkle on!
