Face This Guide: How to do Glitter for Grown-Ups


Everyone loves a bit of sparkle in their lives and the runways for the last two seasons have given us lots of inspiration for how to add a little glitter to our beauty looks without looking like we are made up for Halloween. (Of course that, and festival season, is the perfect occasion to glitter bomb yourself and go all out).  There are new products with formulas that have staying power, come in the most amazing holographic and metallic colors, glosses that are high on shine and low on the sticky factor, shades that can be blended and layered for different effects, and colors that go from low-key glam to all out disco queen.

For the most modern take on glitter makeup choose one feature to play with and leave the rest of the face more neutral.  Note: a little glitter ones a long way.  The easiest way to play with the trend is with a glitter eyeshadow or lip color that is more natural than shocking, and metallic in it’s finish.  Try layering a glitter lip gloss over a favorite lip color to give it a shimmering look.  Another quick and easy way to add some gleam is by applying a highlighter to your upper cheekbones over your blush, or using a metallic gel eye liner to create a modern cat eye. Tip: use a blending sponge to even out your day makeup and refresh it, then add either a glitter eye shadow or create a glitter lip to take your look from day to evening, from neutral to sexy/fun/glam in one quick step.

Glitter isn’t just for holidays or kids, and it’s one of the easiest ways to update your look with adult-approved shades and finishes that can shimmer or shine depending on how glam you want to go.  Why should kids have all the fun?

The FACE THIS: A Model's Secrets Fall Beauty Haul

Summer is winding down and as much as I will miss all the natural hair, an easy, relaxed makeup routine, and glowing summer skin, I always get a rush of excitement and anticipation when I see the fall fashion issues hit the stands and the shops fill up with layers, heavier textures, and deeper color tones.  I start obsessing about a smoky eye, a stronger more defined lip, and makeup looks that smolder rather than glow. 

I love to start with fresh, new products, and searching for them is part of the thrill.  Here is my first fall beauty haul, which will tie me over until the beauty splurge urge hits again.  By mid-fall I will be looking for products to add a little glam and shimmer to my holiday looks, but until then it will more likely be me matching my outfit to my makeup, rather than the other way around. 

All products are available at

What’s in your beauty haul for fall?
