'Tis finally the season to pile on the glitz. Glitter has found a place both on and off the runway this year, but it's Instagram, where innovation is plentiful, that offers the best lessons – and inspiration – in glamorous, gleaming makeup.
While seeking a light-catching party makeup look, look no further than Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who coated her lids in a rose shimmer, while an under-eye line of metallic silver offers an unexpected twist on the trend. Take a cue from L'Oreal muse Karlie Kloss and cover yourself in rhinestones from head to toe, or accent a cat-eye with shining baubles like Binx Walton.
