Make your eyes pop with a swipe of glitter eyeliner. To create a glam look that is not overdone, start with a basic black liquid liner, applied in a cat eye shape. Then, use the glitter eyeliner to trace a thin line across the top of the black liner. The glitter will draw attention to your eyes without looking too clown-like. Urban Decay carries a line of glitter eyeliners in a variety of colors. Experiment with gold, silver or any other neutral shade.
Let your hands do the talking with a glittery manicure. Keep things simple with a subdued, shimmery polish such as Butter London Nail Lacquer in Jack the Lad, or pack a punch by layering a multicolored, confetti polish like OPI Nail Lacquer in Polka over a basic black or navy nail. Be careful not to use the confetti polish without any color underneath — it leaves nails looking unfinished and unpolished. Consider painting your whole nail or simply adding accents.
Add a subtle sparkle to skin or hair by spritzing with glitter spray. Choose a shade to highlight complexion — gold for those with olive or beige tones and silver for cool-toned skin. Spray products like Jerome Russell B Wild Hair and Body Glitter Spray on the ends of your hair or a delicate body spray like Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Shimmer Dust to your upper arms, neck and collarbone for a festive shimmer effect.
