Make Up Monday | Bring on the glitter

If I needed any indication the social or party season has come in to full swing it was receiving the date for my office christmas party. I think that is a sign to rock out the glitter.

Glitter as a 24 year old can be hard to wear. Too subtle there really is no point in making the effort. Too much and you look like a twelve year old. The trick is to find the balance. Here is what I would do if I wear glitter this month.

On the eyes - the easiest way for me to wear glitter on the eyes is through a shimmery shadow and some glitter eye liner. Opt for a brown liner for a slightly more subtle look. My go to would be combination at the moment would be the Urban Decay Vice Palette* (Flame in particular is a beautiful glitter shadow) and the NYX Studio Liquid Liner both of these work a treat and are perfect for an office get together when you want to add a little bit of something without going overboard.

For something to add a little bit of extra is adding actual glitter on the lids. The Urban Decay Heavy Metal* Glitter allows you to apply glitter to any shadow you want to put on your lids. A good money saver if you like a matte shadow on the regular but want to change it up once in a while.

An everyday subtle liner are the Gosh Extreme Liners. These Liners have a metallic element to it rather than straight glitter allowing you to take a look from day to night without feeling you look like a disco ball.

Going all out? take your glitter and apply a small amount on your lips. not too much but swipe a small amount on the centre then quickly take your fingers to blend it out to the rest of the lips. This is personally too editorial for me but if you want to have some fun and braver than I am it is worth trying.
