Some trends come back around faster than others. Case in point, glittery eye makeup is back on the scene for holiday season and hotter than ever! While most shiny cosmetics were tossed back in the early 2000’s along with our butterfly clips and frosted lip gloss, you might find yourself wishing you had saved that favorite loose eyeshadow or festive liquid liner for this fresh new season.
Now, unlike with previous cycles of this trend, we have the technology to prevent the dreaded creasing, flaking, and fallout that came with packing glitter onto your blinking eyeballs. There are special primers designed to keep the particles in place all day and night. Unlike other eyeshadow primers, these glitter primers are extra thick and leave the eyelids tacky to hold on to the pigment, preventing chunky pieces from falling into your eye or elsewhere on your face. They are also highly moisturizing, which prevents creasing, since no one wants a big bare line in the middle of their party makeup. Firmer, smoother surfaces keep product in place longer, so it is very important to complete this step every time you apply.
Another cool collection are sparkly metallics, including the still fashionable rose gold tones that have been popping up since the spring. Deep carbon black, smooth silver, and glistening gold are also high on any beauty editor's list for holiday season.
