Shine bright like a d iamond
All that glitters is like living on the bright side of rock ‘n’ roll
ONE OF this year’s most popular make-up trends is glitter. From mirror-ball sparkle to subtle shimmer, glitter can be fun and sexy. It’s a trend we’ll continue to see well into 2019.
Since it’s party season, you can get away with pretty much anything when it comes to how you use glitter in a make-up look. You can go all out and sprinkle glitter across eyes and cheeks, go full cover glitter on lips, even on your shoulders and chest.
If you want to get in on the sparkle hype, then here are a few tips on how to ease into the trend.
If you are doing a glitter eye, there’s no need to apply it to the entire eyelid. Add a touch of shimmer to either the inner or outer corner (or both). A glitter liquid liner in gold or silver is a sexy alternative to your usual black. A hint of bronze shimmer on the outer tips of your eyebrows is a quick way to add sparkle.
Lips can get the disco-ball treatment too. Again, not your entire mouth. Dab a bit on your bottom lip or on the middle of your top lip. Work this trend into your New Year’s Eve party look and you’re good to go! International make-up artist Raine Tauber tells us how to create a simple lip look:
Grab yourself a matte red/pink lipstick
I recommend MAC Dance With Me Retromatte Liquid Lipcolour; slick it on and buff out the edges for an effortless, chic and very achievable look.
Use a bit of silver or gold glitter.
Here I recommend MAC 3D silver glitter. This can be used to embellish areas such as eyes or lips for a more dramatic but still light and fun look.
