How many holiday parties do you have to attend this month? Work, family, friends . . . the list can get long and the logistics can get complicated. Ugly sweater or little black dress? Flats or heels? Festive or classy? Ugh and to do it more than once. . . We've got four simple and easy ways to stand out and sparkle (quite literally) at this year’s holiday party.
Add Sparkle To The LipsLook utterly kissable under that mistletoe this year by adding some sparkle to your lip regimen. You can do this the easy way by simply purchasing a lipgloss or lipstick that contains a glitter aspect. Or you can go with this route: apply your lipstick, put a layer of clear gloss on top; with a small brush, apply glitter. Finally, with your mouth closed spray a thin layer of hairspray to set the glitter. To make this look really pop, use a bright or dark red lip color.
Add Sparkle To The HairYou’ll definitely glitter and shine in the light with this fun addition. Add sparkle to your night by giving your hair a glitter make-over. There are two ways to go about this one as well. The first is the easy way with glitter hairspray. Be sure to hold the spray far enough away from the hair to avoid large amounts of glitter in selective areas. The second way to go about this is to put glitter on your brush and brush the glitter through your hair before styling it. Then apply hairspray afterward to set it.
Add Sparkle To The ShoesDancing the night away at your holiday party? This is the way to make your night glitter. Go the easy way and find your perfect pair of glittering shoewear at your favorite store. If you have an old pair that needs sprucing or you decide to bargain shop for the pair you're wearing only one night try this: mix generous amounts of glitter with mod podge until you have a paste-like substance. Pack your glitter mixture onto the heel or other areas of the shoe. Allow plenty of time to dry.
Add Sparkle To Your NailsThis is an easy one and an option that many go for this time of year. Visit a local nail tech and take advantage of their creativity or go in armed with a picture off Pinterest. Try some holiday glittering wraps from your local beauty store or from a friend who sells Jamberry. Or you can go the DIY route with some good ol’ glittery lacquer.
