10 Ways To Wear Glitter This Season - Comment To Win!
I don't know about you, but for me, 2011 was the year of glitter! We saw glitter everywhere this year, in everything from sequined tanks and blazers to sparkly baubles to rhinestoned nails. I even took it upon myself to DIY glitterfy a pair of old heels! I don't doubt that glitter will still be popular come 2012 and it's definitely a trend for this holiday season, but we don't think we should limit glitter to just one area, so here are 10 ways you can rock the glitz...please just don't rock them all that once. That might be a bit much.
1.Eyes, 2.Lips and 3.Nails
You may be tempted to shy away from bold colours and intense pigments here, but I say, go big or go home! Be wary of body glitters though (too Spice Girls circa 1997) and wearing more than one of these at the same time- if you go for a glitter lip, do a matte eye and vice versa.
1. Lime Crime Magic Dust Eyeshadow in Diva (US$14.00).
2. Glitter Nail Polish in Supernova (C$9.00)
3. Essie Nail Polish in Gold Nuggest (US$8.00)
Combine 4. POP Glitter Must-Have Kit (US$15.00) with a matte lipstick like 5. MAC Mattene Lipstick in Eden Rouge (C$17.50) for a wearable sparkly lip, check it out here.
4.Shoes and 5.Purses
Be the envy of all the glitter jealous girls with a pair of stand out heels or an eye catching purse. Don't limit yourself with the type of sparkle either, go for sequins, rhinestones or beads for something different!
1. Asos Glitter Flip Lock Cross Body Bag (US$27.27)
2. Top Choice Sequin Clutch (C$21.65)
3. Banana Republic Jeweled Envelope Clutch (C$124.00)
4. Nine West Nathania Heels (C$130.00)5. Bebe Omega Glitter Wedges (US$114.99)
6. Aldo Durling High Heel (C$100.00)
6.Necklaces, 7.Rings, 8.Hair Accessories
Wear a statement necklace, large cocktail ring or a little something extra in your eye for visual interest. It adds a unique style to what might otherwise be a basic outfit.
1. Aldo Turntine Necklace (C$20.00)
2. Full Tilt 2 Piece Glitter Bow Barrettes (C$5.94)
3. Rachel Roy Glitter Owl Ring (C$48.00)
4. Mod Cloth String of Sparklers Headband (US$19.99)
9.Dresses and Skirts, 10.Tops
Of course, we've talked enough about how fabulous a sequined dress it, but why not try some glitter in a metallic skirt too? An embellished tank is a fabulous option as it can be dressed up or down and for a piece that is sure to get attention, try a sequined blazer.
1. NastyGal Dusted Sequin Blazer (US$138.00)
2. Wilfred Barbizon Dress (C$215.00)
3. TopShop Black Embellished Cami (C$66.00)
4. Gap Metallic Mini Skirt (C$69.95)

I've been using some silver glitter on my eyes and shimmery red lipstick for the holidays. I have a little clutch with sequins I'll use on New Year's Eve, but otherwise I don't like to wear sparkly clothes very much.
I love glitter but not too much at a time!! I love glitter eyeliner, though i line the my eyes with a cream eyeline on top in a dark brown and then i use a bronze glitter liner over top(Lise Watier) looks beautiful but not to garish!!!
I'm going to wear a glittery eye. I'm hoping to get those falsies with glittery beads in the prize pac to match! ;D
Not only am I wearing a beautiful deep red glittery scarf to go with my outfit on Christmas Eve, but my 15 month old daughter is going to be rockin' red glitter ballerina slippers!!
