5 Glittery Makeup Ideas to Try This Holiday Season
Decking out everything—including yourself—in everything that sparkles this year.
Your Christmas tree shouldn't be the only thing shining bright this holiday season. These glitter makeup products will help you achieve a glamorous look for your seasonal soirees all winter long. Even if your everyday makeup is on the more natural side, this trend is an exciting way to highlight your favorite features and test-drive new looks. Take a subtle approach with sparkly eyeliner and glitzy nail polish, or be more adventurous with glittery eyeshadow and shimmering lipstick. The holidays give us a prime opportunity to rock bright, glitter-infused makeup, and this list has everything you need to pull it off. (Plus, all of these top-rated options are $15 or less!)
This season, cover your nails in pine-green glitter that resembles a trimmed Christmas tree. "Under Wraps" is made with reflective glitter "pearls" so your fingers and toes will sparkle at every angle. This shade is part of Essie's holiday 2019 collection, which features five other glitzy options if green isn't your cup of tea.
Upgrade your smoky eye with a highly-pigmented eyeshadow that dries fast and lasts for hours. Apply this gel-based formula as an all-over color or as a thick, vibrant eyeliner. It comes in eight shimmery shades.
Swipe on a coat of this lightweight, long-lasting liquid formula for an elevated party pout. NYX's Cosmic Metals lip collection comes in seven exciting shades like fuchsia, plum, and rose gold. We love this gold option because it complements fair, medium, and deep skin tones.
Skin can look dull during the winter, but this brightening liquid highlighter will give your face a gorgeous glow in seconds. Tap it onto cheekbones with your fingertips and gently blend for a subtle, natural-looking shimmer or layer it on for dramatic intensity.
An eyeliner that's waterproof, pigmented, and lasts for 12 hours? We're sold. This eye crayon glides on smoothly for precise application for all of your lining, smudging, and layering needs. For an extra eye-catching look, use this liner to draw a cat eye.
