Ring In The New Year With One-Swipe Glitter Eye Shadow

This season’s most glamorous look is also the one that’s easiest to apply. Get glittery this dazzling makeup look. 

There’s nothing like the festive season to inspire one to get all dolled up, what with all the glitterati’s chic soirees that are sure to last well into the new year. Glamour is finally back in full force with lids awash in all manner of iridescence, from lustrous gold eyeshadow as vibrant as the sun, to pearlescent rainbow sparkle adding tons of holiday magic to your peepers. 

While glitter is a holiday staple, the presence of silvery lids at the Chloe, Jil Sander, and Tory Burch 2023 spring shows, as well as the golden wonders at Giorgio Armani and Dries van Noten are any indication, we’ll be celebrating in glittery fashion for months to come. 

And the best part about this megawatt look? It’s a cinch to do. Thanks to modern formulas, most eye products are now highly pigmented and easy to blend and apply. Also, this is glittery eye shadow, not glitter itself. The latter, while scintillating, can be more challenging to apply and may require glue or other tacky products for it to adhere. Glitter eye shadow, whether in powder, liquid or cream, is the happy medium. Just one swipe (and a bit of blending) paired with even the simplest makeup routine, and one is ready for a sparkling night on the town. For more drama, add more layers and amp up the intensity, or even combine hues to add depth to one’s lids. 

Always pressed for time when transitioning from day to night? Stash these glitzy wonders in your makeup bag, and you’ll always be ready to party. 

Bring On The Glitz

Make a statement with Charlotte Tilbury’s Hypnotizing Pop Shots, a highly-pigmented cult favorite that gives lids a glorious crystalline glow.

For the perfect marriage of smoky and shimmery, we love Victoria Beckham’s Lid Lustre, whose creamy formulation makes it a dream to apply, while its skin-loving ingredients squalene and guava leaf extract nourish the skin.

For eyes glistening like jewels, Ciaté London’s Marbled Metals Metallic Glitter Eyeshadow goes on velvety smooth like a cream shadow whilst imbuing lids with vivid sparkle.

Hourglass’ Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow, on the other hand, has a weightless formula that’s easy to blend, going from sheer shimmer to a more intense prismatic finish in a few swipes. 

For effervescent lids and foolproof, fall-out free application, there’s nothing quite as nifty as liquid eyeshadows. Stila’s Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow has the perfect mix of pearlescent sparkles and glitter, gliding effortlessly and drying down comfortably with mesmerizing luster.

For glittery shine with a more wet look finish, we love One/Size Eye Popper Sparkle Vision Eyeshadow, whose varying sizes of glitter and one swipe application make for a stunning look sure to turn heads.
