Why should the lights on the tree outshine your party look? Glittery makeup and nail polish will have you sparkling all season, so follow your glitz. We've put together five of our favorite glittery beauty products that are sure to make you stand out and dazzle at every holiday gathering. These are our top picks—including eye shadow and highlighter—for this holiday beauty trend.

Today's glitter makeup is unlike anything you'll find at the craft store. It's a fun and easy way to shift your beauty routine into holiday mode, and it doesn't have to be over-the-top, either. Just a simple swipe of shimmery eyeshadow or coat of electric pink polish can instantly elevate your look—and it's way more affordable than a new outfit.

Eye Shadow

Stila Vivid & Vibrant Eye Shadow Duo

Upgrade your smoky eye for the holidays with a bold gem tone palette. This eye shadow duo gives you the option of a fine shimmer or a dramatic glitter. The mixture of glitter and metallic play with light to create dimension, while the vibrant color combinations complement all eye and skin colors. The richly pigmented shadows go on smoothly and last for hours without creasing. We're smitten with the Vivid & Vibrant Eye Shadow Duos in Garnet, left, and Sapphire, right.

The new statement lip is shiny and bright, just in time for the holidays.

Swipe on a coat of the lightweight liquid formula, then watch it turn into a gleaming metallic matte finish. Set it with translucent powder for extra-long wear.
