It may feel like a little too far away to plan your makeup looks for the holiday season but with Thanksgiving next week, it is actually the perfect time! Some of the trends that we have seen on the runway have been dark dark lipstick, dark nails and our personally favorite; glitter! For those who are a little nervous about wearing glitter makeup every day; Christmas and or New Years Eve would be the perfect time to try the new look out.
Applying glitter makeup and making sure it stays all night can be a little tricky. Fortunately one of our stylists’ Sabrina has some great tricks and tips of the trade. First spray your brush that you are using to apply the glitter with setting spray; this will give the glitter something to hold on to; otherwise the glitter will get lost in the brush. Next, prep the eye with either a non-toxic glitter glue (Too-Faced makes a great non-toxic glue) or a super adhesive cream stick. Then apply the as much glitter as desired. After the adhesive has dried, tip your head upside down and run over each eye lightly with a fan brush. This will help sweep the excess away. I know I’m excited to try this new look this holiday season!
