We really hope you’re ready for glowy, glittery and shimmery makeup looks this spring because Shimmer Eyeshadows are going nowhere! From the S/S catwalks to all the gorgeous Instagram makeup looks we’re seeing, there’s definitely some golds, bronzes, glitter glosses!
We’re seeing gold highlighter everywhere (thanks Rihanna) and it’s not just used on the high points of the cheeks. Experiment with using a gorgeous yellow gold shadow on your lids, inner corners, cupid’s bow to get that gorgeous glow all over your face! I mean you can never have too much highlighter… We love the NYX Baked Eyeshadow in Ghetto Gold.
Highlighters are just as popular as ever for this spring and you should definitely invest in a liquid version to layer under a powder. The statement and payoff are totally worth it. The Sleek Barekissed Illuminator gives you a gorgeous glow to the skin that looks super natural, and then layered with a powder highlighter like the Marco By Design 6 Shade Highlighter Palette you will make sure that glow is seen from space!
Metallic makeup was a big trend on the catwalks this season, it was used on the eyes, the lips, the brows and even the collar bones. We obsessed with the LaRoc 35 Colour Eyeshadow Palette in 04, it has so many bright shades to choose from and plenty of shimmers to help you create the perfect metallic eyeshadow look. Make sure you don’t forget to add a sweep of shimmery lip gloss over your lipstick to finish the look! The L’Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss is a great one to have in your make up bag.
Glitter is a huge trend that we’ve been seeing more and more over the last couple of seasons, now this is getting bigger! Not only in popularity but also the type of glitter! We’re seeing rhinestones, sequins, gems and glitter liner. These supersized glitters are adhered to the bottom of the lash line, under the brow bone and on the lips. This look is perfect for festival season so get yourself glittered up!
There are no rules with this gorgeous shimmery trend so go wild and add in into your makeup wherever you can!
