Wear Glitter As A Grown-Up
Hard Candy might not be packing plastic heart rings anymore, but its devotion to sparkle is still unmatched. Try rimming your eyes with their Take Me Out Eyeliner ($5) in Truffle or Handcuffs for a light-catching cat-eye. Not wild enough? Sephora's Deco Daze Glitter Eyeliner Appliques ($5) are even easier to apply and come in gold, silver, and purple.
If you'd rather stick to flecks of gold on your lips, there's no shortage of glitter-infused gloss on the market. Dolce & Gabbana's Ultra-Shine Lipgloss ($29) in Pink Diamond looks purple but goes on clear, while Bobbi Brown's High Shimmer Lip Gloss ($23) in Oyster turns frosty. Le Metier de Beaute's Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss ($32) in Orange Juiced actually does deliver a sheer orange tint. If, for some reason, those aren't actually glittery enough, take the Violent Lips plunge. Their Temporary Lip Tattoos ($7) come in almost every color imaginable (even ombre!) and should stay on all night. There are three per pack, just in case.
Before you jump on the glitter nail polish bandwagon, make sure you're armed with a bottle of acetone polish to soak it all off. Then feel free to splurge on Deborah Lippmann's Nail Lacquer ($18) in Let's Go Crazy or Butter London's Nail Polish ($14) in Fiddlesticks. Want chunkier glitter? Topshop's Nails ($10) in Beleza has silver flecks in blue polish while China Glaze's Nail Polish ($5) in Techno is as holographic as it sounds.
One last word of advice? Sequins plus glitter equals a train wreck, so if you're going for a sparkly beauty look, skip the spangled clothes.
