Stunning Glitters For Holiday Parties 2018
Throughout the year we let ourselves be satisfied with the everyday brown/black neutral eye makeup. Then, the holidays hit and we are full on bling and glitter. There are two times throughout the entire year when glitter overload seems acceptable. Those times are Halloween and – The Holidays.
While there is nothing more annoying than seeing Christmas throw up on peoples homes the day after Halloween, I am all about the premature application of glitter in preparation for the Holiday Season. There are only so many times a year when we can get away with a total gold glitter look so, let’s embrace it, and go into it – and out – with a bang.
There are so many beautiful choices this year for Holiday Sparkle. From eyeshadow to eyeliner, getting that Holiday worthy sparkle will be effortless.
