The Major Beauty Trend for Spring Is ... Glitter

Spring is typically synonymous with pastels, floral prints and dewy, light makeup. And while we love all of these classic spring things, the season’s latest trend — glitter — gave us a very pleasant surprise! Who doesn’t love to add a little sparkle to their look? From runways to the red carpet, it seems like everyone is joining the glitter movement, including us. Our good friends at L’Oréal were kind enough to send us some shiny gems to test out, and we compiled a list of the ones that have us completely obsessed.

Glitter Makeup

NYX Face & Body Glitter

An all-purpose glitter product should be a staple in your makeup arsenal and the latest NYX launch will definitely do the job. Packed with pigmented sparkles, this loose glitter can be used to amp up your eye makeup, lips, face and every other part of your body. Because full-body glitter is totally acceptable.

Lancôme Hypnose Dazzling in Givre Dore

If you want to take a more low-key approach with glitter, try a subtle shadow like the Hypnose Dazzling that washes the lids with soft sparkles. These shadows can be worn alone or layered on top of another hue for a "dazzling" finish.

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner

Swap out your regularly scheduled liner for one that truly shines. This liquid-based, glittery eyeliner is versatile in that you can tone-down or up the intensity based on the look you’re going for. Swipe one coat along your lash line for a hint of sparkle or pack on several for some serious rockstar peepers.

essie Luxe Effects in Jazzy Jubilant

Let your nails get in on the fun with luxe polish that sparkles like no other. Our current fave is the multi-colored glitter from the essie Luxe Effects collection. Featuring a pretty plethora of sparkling colors, this polish will have you shining in even the darkest of settings (date night, anyone?).

The Body Shop The Sparkler

Everyone needs a little sprinkle of fairy dust to magically jazz-up their look from time to time. Featuring a light, Japanese Cherry Blossom scent, this product sprays a light dust of glitter onto the skin, leaving you with a beautiful iridescent shimmer that’s totally enchanting.

NYX Glam Lipgloss Aqua Luxe in Glitter Dreams

We are always looking for ways to glam up our lips and glitter is a great way to go. Give that matte lipstick a break for a day and try a sparkling gloss for an extra flirty look.
