GLITTER BOMB

Hong Kong Tatler Weddings - - BIG DAY BEAUTY -

In a year of sar­to­rial con­trasts, we shouldn’t be sur­prised that along­side the thirst for per­fect, un­touched spa skin was an ob­ses­sion with all things sparkly, shim­mery and shiny. Glit­tery eye­lids were on show at Top­shop, Un­der­cover and Stella Jean, while stick-on gems, jew­els and rhine­stones stole the show at Dries Van Noten, Jeremy Scott and Givenchy.

Glitter level 1: A fresh face of make-up is al­ways pretty in the church, but to make your glow­ing skin re­ally stand out at the re­cep­tion, add a sin­gle pop of glitter. At Gi­ambat­tista Valli, make-up artist Val Gar­land cre­ated a teardrop shape next to the eye with clear ad­he­sive and a blob of pink, pur­ple or blue glitter on top. Glitter level 2: Did you know glitter can be sub­tle, as long as its blended in gen­tly? Much like high­lighter, you need to con­sider your com­plex­ion first—sil­ver shim­mer is best on very white skin, gold with a tan, and bronze on darker skin. Spread a liq­uid ad­he­sive over your en­tire lid and up to the brow bone, then brush a light coat of loose glitter on top, fin­ish­ing with lots of mas­cara. Good for big-city par­ties.

Glitter mad­ness: One part Cleopa­tra, two parts Broad­way show, the look cre­ated at Crea­tures of the Wind is gor­geous, but def­i­nitely in the ul­tra-glam bach­e­lorette party cat­e­gory. Make-up artist Aaron de Mey drew a bold wing all the way out to the tem­ples, then brushed gold shadow mixed with loose gold glitter up to the brows for pure shim­mer­ing pret­ti­ness.
