There’s something about a glowing face that instantly attracts you. In recent years we’ve seen the trend of highlighting grow and grow, and now theres even a new technique called strobing thats taken the beauty industry by storm. Of course when I heard about strobing I instantly tested it on my own face and after only a quick few dusts…I felt like a 70’s dancing queen. Highlighting not only brightens up the face but also reflects light off your face making you look camera ready and ethereal as ever.
So although I’m a huge fan of highlighting I’m also a huge fan of shimmery shadows and glitter.
I think makeup is all about having fun and creating new characters with your canvas (which just happens to be your face). With festival season coming up I thought it might be fun to create a collage of some of my favorite shimmery/glowing/glittery looks in hopes of inspiring you.
In each photo you can see a different way to bring these looks to life, whether it be glittery mascara, sparkles, gems, metallic liner, gold flakes, or shimmery shadow.
So go crazy with your makeup, because life is a party once you realize it.
