Shimmer and glitter are all the trend this season, and one of the easiest ways to “holiday-ify” your beauty routine is to accessorize with a little sparkle. On the cheeks, eyes or nails — a little bling goes a long way. So choose one and run with it!
1. Deborah Lippman Fall Nail Lacquer Collection
Forget a blingy ring because no one does sparkle better than Deborah Lippman. We adore these polishes with “micro” sparkles that adorn the hands with beautiful bling. Walk into just about any Bay Area Ulta, Neimans, Nordstrom or Bloomies, and you’ll find a lovely array of fall holiday shimmers.
2. Nars Dual-Intensity Eye Shadow
Metallic eyes are in this season and Francois Nars has mastered metallic sheen with these gorgeous eye shadows. The beauty of these shadows is that you can opt for a soft shimmer, or a full-on metallic lid by dipping your brush in a bit of water.
3. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick
Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks are the sparkly answer to the nude palettes that are oh-so-popular these days. Each color delivers medium to full coverage glittery pigment (especially if you’re wearing a primer underneath, hint-hint!). This a great way to go from day to night or from work to a dinner party; any way you cut it, you’ll be making an entrance.
4. Le Metier de Beauty True Colour Eye Shadow in Nutmeg
Most people don’t know that the True Colour Eye Shadows from Le Metier can also be used as cheek colors. These eye shadows deliver high pigment – on par with Nars or Mac – but you can actually apply the shadows to the cheeks with a light-handed swirl. Our favorite double-duty holiday shade is Nutmeg, a neutral deep gold that makes a statement as an eye shadow, but an even more beautiful statement as a cheek color. Just walk up to the counter at Neimans and try it!
5. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
If you’re running out of time in the morning, then before you head out the door, make sure you luminize, luminize, luminize! Creating lighting effects on the face is one of the quickest and easiest ways to brighten things up. Keep in mind though, highlighting isn’t about bright bling; it is about a subtle effect that lights you up in a way that says “hello” for the holidays. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette delivers a beautiful luminescence that will make your skin look like it was lit from within.
6. Lancome Lip Lovers
For all of you professional ladies out there, you will fall in love with Lancome Lip Lovers range of colors that seamlessly transform your look from day to night. This product delivers sheer-to-medium coverage shimmer, which makes the perfect gloss to step out for a daytime holiday party…Nothing too bold, just a little shine.
7. Dior Addict Lip Maximizer
High gloss, high shine, high impact. Nothing delivers as much of a statement as a plump, glossy lip. Dior Addict will literally have you addicted to the va-va-voom impact of high shine. Dior’s lip maximizer makes lips look uber plump and lush. It comes in two sheer shades, but that’s all you need to amp up your lip. Use it alone, or over one of your favorite holiday lipsticks.
