All That Glitters


The holiday season is time for two things: parties and sparkles! With that in mind, today I’m taking a look at four glittery, party-ready cosmetic products from one of my most beloved brands, MAKE UP FOR EVER, including two new limited-edition holiday kits!

All Eyes On You Gift Set – $65
In case you didn’t know, Sephora is the exclusive home to MAKE UP FOR EVER products, outside of the brand’s own website. But even then, there are some goodies that only Sephora carries, like this brand new, limited-edition gift set designed to pump up the glam factor of your peepers, while giving you a flawless finish on your face. Use the universally flattering soft pink Aqua Cream on your lids and cheeks, and add a smoky sizzle to the rims of your eyes with the black and charcoal grey waterproof Aqua Eyes liners. Finish the look with a swipe of drama queen Smoky Lash mascara, and polish off your entire look with a pint-sized pot of ultra-smoothing HD High Definition Powder. Love this for a great introduction to some of MAKE UP FOR EVER’s most beloved products – it’s universally usable no matter what your skin tone, your age, or the amount of make up you like to wear.

Diamond Powder – $28 each
MAKE UP FOR EVER has two products that cover the sparkly spectrum – straight up Glitter, when you want to work that ice princess look, and pearly Star Powder, when you’re putting on a glam evening face. Diamond Powder falls squarely in the middle: it’s vibrantly saturated with the shade of your choice, yet it’s more on the iridescent as opposed to straight up sparkly side of things. The colours themselves range from champagne and gold to baby blue and lavender, while the consistency is that of extremely fine, delicate glitter. A little goes a long way here: dab a tiny bit over your favourite shadow or a basic eyeshadow base for a long-lasting look that’ll take you through any holiday festivity. Consider gifting your best friend with a pretty pot as a beauty splurge this Christmas!

Aqua Eyes Collection – $48
Any makeup lover knows that an easy-to-apply yet waterproof eyeliner is a girl’s best friend – it’ll get you through sob fest weddings and sweaty dance parties alike, yet still allow for precise application that doesn’t tug at the skin. Enter MAKE UP FOR EVER’s amazing Aqua Eyes line, which is so water resistant, you could literally go swimming and avoid smudges. This six-piece value set features two classic shades of liner (brown & black) plus four travel-sized shades to give you a taste of quite literally eye-popping shades of metallic grey, teal, purple, and champagne (hint: use that last one to rim your inner eyelids to brighten up your eyes on a Monday morning). A must-have for any makeup maven’s stash.

Strass – $23 each
Dial up the holiday glam with real crystals glued (using lash glue or an actual glue stick) to your face and nails. MAKE UP FOR EVER Strass come in a dozen different colours (including a pot of multi-coloured gems), and can be applied in a ton of creative ways. Place a row of them along your lash line for a showstopping sparkle, tuck one in the inner corner of your eye for a little dazzling flash, or work them into a holiday party costume by applying them in a snowflake design on your cheek. A striking pot of these fun gems makes a great choice for that creative gal pal of yours – the one that always has the craziest Halloween costumes, the most beautiful manicure, and picture perfect make-up!
