Shimmy, Shimmy Glitter

Here’s the situation: It’s Saturday night, you’re trying to get ready for a night out with the girls and you are feeling particularly blah. Everyone has that night when your outfit isn’t fitting right, the shoes hurt or your hair is too frizzy. What’s the solution? Jazz up your makeup! When else (besides in a dark, loud club) would glitter eyeliner and/or mascara be totally appropriate? Take advantage of the situation and glitter yourself up for a night!

Urban Decay has a fabulous array of glittered products to give some sparkle to your look. If you want a subtle effect, the Lash Tinsel will give your lashes a bit of glimmer and glam that will shimmer under the lights.

Another option is to try glitter eyeliner! There are two routes for this look–using liquid liner on top, or using a pencil on the bottom. If you are using a liquid liner, use your regular one (a.k.a. black) and then swipe the glitter over it for a more dramatic look. If you are using a pencil, they usually have the darker pigment mixed with the glitter so you can use only the one product. Either way, you are  sparkling for your night out!

Another great party look to try is a luminzer. This one is for those of you wanting to glow, but are hesitant to try glitter. A liquid luminizer (like Stila’s) can be put right into your foundation for an easy glow. A solid formula can be applied over your regular makeup for that shimmer that makes you feel like a million bucks. Apply it to the spots on your face that get hit with the most light–your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and a little on your forehead. A small amount of this product goes a long way to help you achieve your party look!

Either look you try will be sure to turn heads wherever you go, so get glittering girls!

    I am all about the luminizers, but I have yet to try the glitter eye liner on myself. Also, I have not yet found a need for it in my professional makeup kit. I do love Urban Decay. I will put their glitter eyeliner on my shopping list!

      I think it is done so simply in the image above, that it could be wearable for almost any night out!
