All That Glitters

I have a habit of being drawn to anything shiny, glimmering and sparkly and my obsession knows no boundaries. Sequin dress? Yes please! Glimmering statement necklace? Sign me up! All-over body glitter? Why yes, of course I will! Now the last one is just for special occasions like Halloween, but there are a slew of ways that you can sparkle and shine every day of your life!

My favorite way, and I would think the simplest, of incorporating shimmy and shine is through jewelry.You can choose to accessorize with a gigantic statement necklace, or more subtle rhinestone earrings. Either way, your ensemble is sure to shine!

1. Rhinestone Geo Earrings, Forever21, $9.80
2. Cezanne Crystal Points Necklace, Dillards, $22.80
3. Rhinestone Chandelier Earrings, Forever21, $8.50
4. Sparkle an Idea Bracelet, Modcloth, $17.99

TIP: Check out inexpensive stores like Forever 21 (or For Love 21)! Once you look past some not-so-attractive items, you’re sure to find a little treasure!

Another way to incorporate more subtle shine is through your makeup. A shimmering lip gloss can be a great way to bring attention to your lovely face. Try Dior Addict Ultra Gloss if you want some high-impact shimmer and shine. Tarina Tarantino, a jewelry designer, has done a line of makeup for Sephora and also offers a gloss that packs quite the punch in such a small tube. Aptly named Sparkle City, this gloss will definitely leave you glittering. If you are looking for a drugstore option, look no further than Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lip Gloss. I have several colors and it’s my everyday go-to!

And don’t forget, for a precise application of these products use a quality brush such as the Royal & Langnickel C656 Taklon Pointed Lip Brush or the C651 Synthetic Lip Retractable Brush.

If you’re in an all-out sparkle mode mood, never underestimate the power of sequins. A gold sequin dress is my ultimate glitter go-to.

If a full-on sequin cocktail dress is a bit much (or you have nowhere to wear it!), then you should definitely attempt to slip a little shimmery tank top under your blazer or cardigan. With jeans this look is perfect for transitioning from day to night, and with a skirt and tights you’re ready for a night out!

Keep on sparkling!
