tips from a pro

Grace Lee, lead artist for May­belline New York, shares her tips for em­brac­ing shim­mer and shine— es­pe­cially if you’re wary of the trend. Her own ethos? “I’m all for it—as long as it’s in mod­er­a­tion.”

THE RIGHT LOOK “Make the shim­mer al­most like a fairy dust­ing of prod­uct,” says Lee. Pil­ing it on is opaque and too se­vere; in­stead, keep it sheer and build if you need to. GLOSSIER Lid­star in Cub, $22, glossier.com THE RIGHT AP­PLI­CA­TION “You want to make the glit­ter ap­pli­ca­tion the fi­nal step of your eyes,” says Lee. You may even want to ap­ply your foun­da­tion af­ter so that you can brush away any shim­mery fall­out eas­ily. Lee rec­om­mends do­ing this with a clean spoolie brush. BEN­E­FIT COS­MET­ICS An­gled Brow Brush & Spoolie, $26, ben­e­fit­cos­met­ics.com. THE RIGHT MULTI­TASKER For an even sub­tler, but still very mod­ern, take on sparkle, switch up the place­ment. “Use it as eye­liner, or even a high­light in the in­ner cor­ner of the eye,” sug­gests Lee. NUDESTIX Mag­netic Lu­mi­nous Eye Colour in Cop­per Foil, $28, nudestix.ca.

If you find glit­ter where it shouldn’t be, use a clean spoolie to gen­tly pick up pig­ment.
