Dynamic December: Shine

     image



      When I was much younger, I was sure I was anti-glitter. I avoided sparkles, glitter and detested sequins “they’re too much”, “it’s too much shine”, “I’m not a disco ball”, I used to say. Now that I’m older I appreciate shimmer and have no problem with illuminating a room. With the holidays coming up, everyone’s inner sparkle starts screaming to be released, but for those who still protest the idea of shining bright like a diamond here are subtler ways to shine.


     Makeup: Take the liberty of using sparkly eye shadow or bronzer with tiny glitter elements to shine. I bought a gold eyeliner with gold that shines every time it catches the light, and I let that be my statement for the night. Using your makeup to add shimmer to a look is easy and not as loud as you’d think it would be.

  Last but not least allow some metallic details in your shoes, bag or hair accessories to brighten up your look!Tossing on a pair of your favorie boots that just so happen to have some metallic details like sequins, spikes or metallic threading bring in shine without worrying about doing too much.Also, how could we forget about the power of glittery nail polish! Using nail polish with shimmer in it, is extremely trendy right now. What I do is paint all of my nails one base color and then one specific nail over with glitter for a statement nail!
