How to Wear Glitter Like a Grown Up

December 13th, 2016

I’ll be honest: when I heard that my assigning editors wanted me to write a story on glitter makeup, I was a little skeptical. Maybe I’m still scarred by the memories of the scented glitter body gel that me and my friends used to apply before middle-school dances (does anyone else remember that gross, goopy stuff that we all loved so much?), or, more recently, trying to scrub glitter nail polish off my fingers to no avail. In any case, I didn’t necessarily have the best initial feelings about glittery cosmetics. That is, until I started my market research, and became positively giddy.

Because, my friends, glitter is awesome. And, there are so many ways to sport the sparkly stuff these days that does not involve big chunks of blue glitter suspended in sour-apple-scented gel (and thank God for that). Especially at this festive time of year, a bit of sparkle can really transform a more straightforward look into something festive and fun. Check out my fun picks to get ideas on the cool-girl way to sport some shimmer—’tis the season, after all!

  1. I think I’d love to try the glitter eyeliner for a touch of glitter during the holidays! A little more subtle for me.

    I love glitter nail polish and I’ve been trying to find a more grown up version of body glitter that I loved when I was young. To no avail until the Body Shop has just come out with a scented glitter spray and even better, a sparkle diffuser in an old fashioned perfume bottle. I don’t care how tacky it makes me look, I’m wearing it for special occasions 😛
