Who doesn’t love a little glitter right? Glitter makeup is so much fun to wear, but there comes a time when glitter is just too tacky to wear as part of your normal, grown-up makeup routine. But glitter is great for high days and holidays, and there are ways that you can incorporate subtle shimmer into your makeup that’s on-trend without being overpowering.
Cosmetic jewellery trends and looks that shimmer
Wow factor: Apply clear gloss to your eyes, and dust your lids with NYX Professional Makeup Face & Body Glitter in your favourite shade, using a flat eyeshadow brush.
Keep it subtle: Use glitter eyeliner. We recommend Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner for a subtle yet glamorous effect.
Finishing touch: Face jewellery and makeup imbued with glitter is the perfect combination. Apply a few stick-on crystals near the corners of your eye.
Wow factor: Wear your favourite shade of lipstick, apply a clear gloss over the top, and then dust with NYX Professional Makeup Face & Body Glitter in a matching shade. There will be no missing your gorgeous sparkly lips!
Keep it subtle: Use a shimmer lip gloss over your normal lipstick. We like NYX Professional Makeup Lip Lingerie Shimmer Clear for a subtle pearl shine.
Wow factor: Get yourself a bottle of glitter top coat and let your fingers do the talking with super sparkly nail art on all your fingers.
Keep it subtle: Apply nail varnish with a slight pearl finish. Try Essie Nail Lacquer Pink Diamond and finish with protective top coat.
