What to my wondering eyes should appear, but e.l.f.’s beautiful collection of sparkle this year! Their Stardust Glitter Eyeliner is a definite standout. Just paint it on as you would any liquid liner. Add a thin or thick line to your upper lash line, depending on how dramatic you would like your look to be. Wear it alone or apply a line of glitter above your normal black/brown liner for added drama. Colors include Sparkling Silver, Shimmering Gold, Pink Opal, and Sea Foam. Trust me, you will get compliments.

4. Super Bling Glitter Nail Polish ($2.67 Amazon)
Makeup isn’t the only way to sparkle, you can also work the holiday trend with glitter nail polish. Choose a traditionally festive color like red or green, or go for a neutral like silver and gold. Paint all your nails, or use glitter polish for an accent nail.
5. Rhinestone Bobby Pins ($.01 Amazon)
Bobby pins are still having their moment in the spotlight! Just by tucking a rhinestone bobby pin into your hair, you level up your glam! You take an everyday look to an evening/party look instantly. They work great with an up-do, but look just as elegant simply holding hair behind your ear.
Glitter always feels glamourous. So after the holidays, keep the trend going. Put the tinsel and lights in storage, but don’t pack away your sparkle!
