It’s the season of fashion weeks around the globe and the time when we get our little fashion diaries out and take notes. One thing is for sure—shimmer is not going anywhere, anytime soon. So, why don’t we make friends with it and see how we can include it in our daily makeup?

There is a fine line between glossy shimmer and a greasy mess. And we don’t want to fall into the second category, do we? So, keep it subtle—highlight one part of your face or body at a time and just follow the tips we have listed to keep you glowing and glistening like a boss lady!
Eyes
 

Eyes

It is very easy to add shimmer to your eyes. The Lakmé 9 to 5 Eye Quartet – Silk Route has shades ranging from nude to golden hues that are perfect for office. You could use a shimmery eyeliner like the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line in Liquid Gold for a gorgeous, golden highlight for your eyes.

Lips
 

Lips

For a night look, play up your lips with a glitter-infused lip colour. How do you do that, you ask? Well, there are plenty of options. Your first option is a metallic lipstick. Alternatively, you could use a matte liquid lipstick and dab a little glitter before the liquid formula dries.

Cheeks
 

Cheeks

This one is a no-brainer, right? Highlighters have become the reason we wake up in the morning. Use a highlighter like Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter on the highest point on your cheeks and blend well. To know what the other points are you can highlight on your face to look like a dewy goddess, you can read this.

Body
 

Body

Yes, you read it right. You can glitter up your body, too! Mix a little amount of glitter, (you can even use that old shimmery eyeshadow that’s been lying un-used) into your body lotion and apply it! Be careful to use a glitter that is suitable for skin application and make sure it is finely powdered, as you don’t want chunky pieces of glitter stuck on you!

Nails
 

Nails

Our love affair with glitter nail polish will never end. Whether you want to paint one accent nail or go glittery on all your nails and toes, we cheer you on! Chrome nails or unicorn nails, whatever your pick, we say you can’t go wrong with this! We love the Lakmé Absolute Gel Stylist in the Illuminate series which has a range of shades with specks of glitter in them.
