Crystals And Glitter Can Brighten Up Any Face

One trend that has been booming in recent months is glitter, and it isn’t going away any time soon. Elle magazine claims that it’s all about sparkling these days, whether you have a cocktail party to attend or you’re going to another formal event. Specifically, more models are being seen with gemstones on everything from their eyelids to their pouts, replacing lipstick and eyeshadow – for at least the time being.

But is it really practical to go all-out with gems and glitter? What if you’re only getting ready to go to work?

“Less is more,” celebrity makeup artist Mary Phillips told the news source, claiming that crystals might be best reserved for runway shows. “Unless it’s for a performance, I wouldn’t have your entire lips crystalled.”

In some instances, you might feel downright uncomfortable wearing any type of makeup that gives you some shine. However, you don’t need to be a teenager to flaunt this look in a stylish manner. If you’re afraid of how glitter might appear on your face, Marie Claire magazine recommends taking it slowly and applying it to your eyelids¬†first. Then, you can move on to shimmery blush and lip gloss.

While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
