Straying away from the typical smokey eyes and party hues, we drew inspiration from some of our favourite high shine backstage moments to up the glitz and glam factor for the perfect party look!
Glitter has been an icon of holiday makeup for years now and sometimes deemed tacky, it’s recently gone through a revamp. As seen on the Fall/Winter 2019 runways, its evident that the flashy trend is making a comeback, with designers like Rodarte, Dries Van Noten and Halpern choosing to speckle full lids of glitter on their models. The most important thing to remember with any glitter look is your base. Be sure to prep the lid with a tacky eye primer like Too Faced’s Glitter Glue, to ensure the glitter adheres properly and limits fallout. And if you don’t want to commit to a sequin-level shine, but still want a little sparkle, then placement is key. Subtle glitter on your lashline—or on your lashes—will do just the trick. Stila’s Glitter and Glow Liquid eyeshadow is perfect for this as its liquid formula is easy to place and comfortable on the eyes.
Another look to try come the holiday season is the ultra glossy. Present in both Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter, the dewy trend has proven that it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Glossy lids make such a cool editorial statement, how could we not rock it during the holidays. 3INA make some of our favourite eye glosses, but if you’re still exploring, simply dab on your favourite gloss to your eyelids and voila – a trendy, bold look with minimal effort.
