Glitter like a Grown-Up
I wrote this post for Dresslikeamum.com but if you missed it Here it is, right before all those Christmas and New Years' Eve Parties.
‘Tis the season to sparkle, and I am sure you Ladies are as busy as I am, so I am going to make this quick!
If you want a fast way to brighten up your look right before all those Holiday Parties, just add Glitter! Here are my Top Three picks to get SPARKLING (Without Getting Glitter EVERYWHERE! )
Glitter Lips: I wore this delightful product to TWO Xmas parties this week at it was such a hit! The little kits consist of a base coat applied like a gloss (essentially it's a glue, I’m not gonna lie) and then use the applicator to carefully press the glitter into place. It REALLY stays on! The glitter is best applied thin, and DOES NOT TRANSFER. My glittery Pout did last better when I was just having drinks, but did do well through mealtimes. It is available Online and at Superdrug for £12.50 (You can check out @tahiramakeupuk to see the results)
Little Ondine: Manicures Are a great way to get your glitter going without getting it everywhere. I LOVED my Little Ondine Manicure I got at an event last week. Their Water-based non toxic nail polish dries quickly with no odor, and gently peels off when you are ready to change colour. They have a range of glittery colours and can be found online for 11£ for a single colour, or save by getting their discovery kits which include a few shades starting at £25. Better yet, jazz up a plain shade with a glittery topcoat with their FABULOUS Twin Sets, £13 for 2 minis in one set. Perfect!
Eyeliner: Glitter eyeliner is a great way to get those sparkles around your eyes. Use them either as a liner or spread them using a brush or a cotton bud, either all over the lid or just on the inside corners for a modern glam look. Classic Urban Decay Heavy Metals comes in a range of fun colours, but you can also get great glitter liners like NYX Liquid Crystal
