How to use glitter

Glitter is a must this holiday season. But where, when and how should you wear it? Here’s our advice!

Where?

While it used to be that you’d only take out your glitter for a glam night out, now the trend is to wear it anytime, the day or night!  However, if you’re going to wear glitter to work or to a dinner party, you have to know how to pull it off. 

When?

At work, the glitter makeup you wear should be sensible. Use it to subtly illuminate your face or to give a punch to a conservative outfit.Iridescent eyeshadow, thin line of metallic eyeliner, pearly lipstick, glitter nail polish: all choices are good when used in moderation

At a party or dinner at a friend’s place, you can go a bit bolder. Avoid the "head-to-toe glitter" look – which is a little too much. Instead, apply touches of glitter here and there. This is the perfect time to put on glittery mascara and body oils that give off a lot of shine. For unforgettable eye makeup and a trendy effect, choose glittery eyeliner.

How?

Daytime glitter makeup

Apply a pearly, cream-coloured eyeshadow, and a generous coat of carbon black mascara. Apply a light-reflecting blush and shiny lip gloss. Finish off your look with some glitter nail polish.

Nighttime glitter makeup

For dazzling eyes, apply a pearly eyeshadow to your upper lid. Next, apply a darker shade of the same colour of eyeshadow in the crease, to add intensity. Apply eyeliner along the base of your lashes. Finish off with a pearly cream-coloured blush on the apples of your cheeks.

Pro tip: Apply shimmering oil to your cleavage and arms for the ultimate glam effect.
