any of us want to use New Year’s Eve as an opportunity to pull out that glittery eye shadow or sparkly lip gloss that we can’t wear every day. The problem is that we’re really not sure how to pull it off. Here are a few tips how to avoid a glitter overkill.
- Keep it Simple: Avoid using glitter on more than one area. Opt for an ultra-shimmery shadow OR a glitter lip gloss, not both. (Try Chanel Lip Gloss in Seashell, $29.50 or NYXX Roll On Eye Shimmer in Bronze, $4)
- You don’t need glitter to shine. Try luscious falsies or a matte bold lipstick instead. The goal is to try something different or vibrant. (Try Winks by Georgie Beauty, $18 or MAC Lipstick in Diva, $16)
- Add a little luminosity to your foundation. (Try Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer, $62)
- Do yourself a favor, keep some make up wipes in your clutch or car. After a long night, chances are you won’t wash your face. Give your face a good swipe on the way home and avoid breakouts the next morning. (Try ELF Studio Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes, $3)
