Tonight, we glit­ter.

Grown-up glit­ter is ex­actly that. Think pur­pose­fully placed: a sprin­kling on the eye’s outer cor­ner (Burberry Pror­sum), a gold wash over the lids (Saint Lau­rent) or a fine line un­der the brow (Gi­ambat­tista Valli). Why glit­ter? Why not? “Ev­ery girl de­serves a sil­ver lin­ing—that’s my thought,” Val Gar­land, makeup artist for M.A.C Cos­met­ics, told us back­stage at Gi­ambat­tista Valli in Paris, re­fer­ring to the sparkling metal­lic shade she was us­ing. Tip: Be­fore putting glit­ter on, ap­ply a thick layer of pow­der—Gar­land used Ben Nye Neu­tral Set Colour­less Pow­der ($11.50)—any­where it might fall. When you’re done ap­ply­ing, brush off the pow­der; any er­rant glit­ter will go with it.
