Growing up, I used to love painting my eyelids with sparkly, glittery shadows. It always made me feel like a glamorous princess. But now as an adult, I know there's a fine line between the appropriate level of glitter and looking as sparkly as my Christmas tree. But what's the holiday season without a little sparkle? Well for starters, you want to make sure you stay away from any makeup that says, "glitter" on it, and go for shimmery, glowing products instead. With the right application, a sweep of sparkly eye shadow, lip gloss, or blush can really help build a festive and fashionable holiday look. Get your shimmer on with some of these fabulous makeup products!
