The return of glitter makeup is a beauty trend we’ve been eagerly anticipating. While it may never again be as ubiquitous as it was in the ’90s (thumbs up emoji for the scented glitter rollerball glory days of Claire’s Accessories) whenever glitter comes down a runway, it’s GAME ON for the tubs of iridescent goodies we’ve been secretly hoarding for years.

As such, cue the beauty look from this morning’s Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2014 show. It’s glitter makeup at its best: a perfect mix of translucent silver, opalescent and rainbow-tinted pieces. Paired with a heavy cat-eye liner (courtesy Ligne Graphique de Chanel in “Noir-Noir” and Le Crayon Khôl in “Clair”) this glitter look is very editorial and totally easy to emulate. Basically, it’s going to be on our faces in a matter of days and no one will think we’re going to a rave. Read more »


How to wear glitter without looking too over the top: 3 Beauty Panel tips and tricks

Comments

glitter makeup

Sparkly ornamentation made its beauty mark this spring—courtesy Marchesa and Christian Dior—and there’s no doubt that glitter accents will continue to trend throughout fall. At the forefront of our favourite shimmering looks was the bedazzled statement look that Peter Philips created for Chanel. Whereas brows got all the glitter in 2012, for Fall 2013 Philips brought the focus back to the eyes, making them twinkle with silver sequined appliqués.

When it comes to duplicating the glitter look at home, it can be tricky to keep the look more runway glam and less like you’re going to a rave. While the Chanel look was impressive, the best bet for some DIY shimmer is to keep it subtle. To help advise, we turned to the Beauty Panel and asked them to show us how they incorporate a little bit of glitter into your beauty routine.

Nail Corner: Brighten up a cloudy winter day with this snow globe manicure

Comments

At some point this week it actually snowed in Toronto—huge fluffy flakes!—and the snow globe-like atmosphere instantly became Nail Corner inspiration. I’ve been dreaming of opaque white glitter for a few months now, but after going down a rabbit hole of searching for such a polish, it seems it’s a mix that’s nearly impossible to acquire. So nail art, paired with two of my all-time-favourite glitters, seemed like an appropriate substitute. (For now, that is!)
