Reflective makeup is the next big thing — and we’re taking it very seriously. Between glass skin highlighters and glossy serums, we’re adding all the glowy, shiny products to our beauty wishlists STAT. This is especially true for upcoming holiday and New Year’s Eve makeup looks, so we rounded up five of the best makeup products that will give you this mirror skin effect in a flash.
For a silvery pigment that looks totally mirror-like when applied to your lids, look no further than Polished by NYX. This cream pigment applies like molten silver foil, and will serve as a gorgeous base to any maximalist NYE eye makeup.
The L’Oréal Paris Crushed Foil Metallic Highlighter in Gilded Gold is the doubletake-worthy highlighter you’ve been searching for. Not only is it extremely pigmented and multi-dimensional, it really gives off that enviable glassy skin effect with minimal effort.
If you adore a good reflective sparkle, Diamond Dust by Stila is the liquid eyeshadow you absolutely need to reach for. This formula is straight up sparkle — and packed on, it transforms into this gorgeous mirrored blanket that will shine intensely with each blink.
Any of the glistening Lid Lingerie shadows by NYX will give your skin a mirrored look because they’re extremely pigmented but nicely glazed. Used overtop a glitter or shadow, these will really enhance the color but still appear reflective under any light.
A glassy, glazed lip is just the prettiest, so that’s why it’s no surprise that YSL Glaze & Gloss Pearl On Me is on our list. This gorgeous gloss is chock full of iridescent sparkle and leaves your pout seriously reflective and mirrored with just one swipe.
