Glitter is the official synonym of the holiday season. For all the women who are already excited about Christmas and New Year’s, we rounded up some gorgeous glittery makeup looks to try. You have just enough time to match your outfits with the best makeup and hairstyles. There’s quite an impressive range of shades starting with fierce purple to orange to toned-down gold shimmer.
Glitter used to be super tacky and chunky back in the 2000s. Those unwearable formulas made us look like we escaped from kindergarten. If anything, we loved the glam feeling these sparkly particles were giving us! Thankfully, glitter is back in 2019 with a major upgrade – subtle, smooth formulas that glide on the eyelids like a dream!
MAC Cosmetics is a makeup brand that never ceases to amaze with their collaborations and new launches. The last few years have been huge for the cosmetics giant and it seems that 2018 is going to be big too. Just in time for spring, MAC is expanding their range of glitter pigments. The brand’s glitter collection so far involves 26 shades, and they will add additional 13 exciting hues. Amazing news for all the makeup addicts who can’t get enough of glitter.
At first, it was only a rumor, but MAC finally confirmed the great news. The brand still hasn’t released any specifics, but there is one shade that is already in use by celebrity makeup artists. We’re talking about the Iridescent White pigment that has a unique 3D effect. Its holographic nature gives the glitter the ability to shine in different shades. In one type of light, it will appear as a gorgeous golden hue, in others might look like a lavender tone or even silver. These mesmerizing unicorn-inspired sparkling particles are already the top trending topic in the beauty world.
Glittery makeup looks are trending at the moment on every single runway show. Starting with Pat McGrath’s mesmerizing holographic sparkling lips for the Maison Margiela show, to the numerous other ways you can add shine to your face, lids, lips, and cheeks, it seems that 2018 will be all about glitter.
The mysterious MAC product already made its debut on the runway. It was first spotted during London Fashion Week, at the London College of Fashion MA18 Womenswear Catwalk presentation. Makeup artist Claire Mulleady used the mesmerizing new glitter shades to create an extreme shine all over the models’ lids.
Days later, the legendary makeup pro Val Garland used the same glitter pigment to do her magic for the Preen catwalk presentation. According to Val, she dipped her makeup brushes in the new Iridescent White shade that will launch very soon. To achieve the magical look, she used the glitter pigment as dust, which she blew straight to the skin of the models. This might not be the most common way to use sparkles in your makeup looks, but keep in mind that there are plenty of other options to add that glam factor.
MAC’s new glitter pigment collection is the perfect chance to get your KiraKira app into action. The brand hasn’t confirmed an official release date yet. They did share that you can expect the sparkling new additions sometime in April. April is less than a month away, so start going through your Insta feed for some glam makeup inspiration.
In a time when we have to face so many political and cultural challenges, Eric Steginsky invented glitter eyeglasses and launched the distinctive eyewear brand Planet i. These are nothing like the eyeglasses with glitter frames you often see on festivals. Eric Steginsky infused glitter in the actual glass, so you can have a glitter rain everytime you put on your eyeglasses. They look whimsical and surreal. You’d get a feeling that you are in your own real-life fairy tale.
“It’s such a depressing time and there’s so much going on in the world. I want people to take a little vacation every time they put these on,’ the mastermind behind the glitter eyeglasses told Vogue.
So far, the brand offers a few different styles, from bold ones to relaxed 70s aviators. The names are innovative and compliment the glasses’ aesthetic. Lightrider, Space Cowboy, Extraterrestrial, and Moonwalker are just a few of the names of the glitter-infused styles. Since these are not your ordinary eyeglasses you would be able to find them in an array of fun colors from purple and red to tangerine. Eric Steginsky has worked on this unique idea for a while until he found the right amount of glitter that won’t distract the way you see through these eyeglasses. He went from party store to party store and became a glitter pro. When he finally found the right sparkles and glitter to glass ratio he launched Planet i.
The glitter effect on the glasses is best experienced on a sunny day. The sun will enhance the sparkly effect and instantly elevate your mood. No need to mention that you’ll get all the attention with these and upgrade your style just by putting them on.
“It’s never been done. They’re like a Snapchat filter for your face,’ Steginsky claims.
In a time when everybody is obsessed with Snapchat and Instagram filters, it seems that real-life glitter filter is just what the world needs now. If anything, these eyeglasses will for sure make their way all over your Instagram feed. Just imagine what the Infamous Kira Kira app that makes your world sparky could do with these sunglasses.
The idea for the eyeglasses with glitter lenses was a result of Steginsky’s interest for cosmology. His “science nerd’ dad skipped the classic fairy tales for a good night. Instead, he was talking to him about big cosmic questions. Later in life, Eric got interested in fashion too, so the glitter eyeglasses are a fusion of his passions.

Okay, ladies is officially that time of the year when you can add glitter to everything without being judged. We know that there are gals that would have glitter from breakfast to dinner. Anyway, adding glitter to your makeup look might be a bit challenging. First, the fact that you don’t have many red-carpet-like events on your schedule might get in the way.
Second, glitter makeup looks are outstandingly gorgeous, but glitter can be messy at times. We all have to admit that glitter gets all over the place when we do our makeup. Plus you have to wake up at least an hour earlier in the morning to do a full face glam. And you can do this only if your workplace allows you to wear much makeup. So, it seems that sometimes you need to wait for a special occasion to wear glitter makeup.
Having all this in mind, we feel free to say that glitter nails are the best deal for all the glitter-obsessed gals out there. First of all, because you don’t have to deal with the mess if you get your nails done at the salon. Even if you do them by yourself, you’ll have to deal with the mess only once. And for a while, you will have cute nail design.
One of the chicest ways to flaunt a glitter mani is the nails-dip-in-glitter technique. This technique means that you have to add glitter only on the top part of your nails. It is a great way to tell the world that you get your fingers involved in everything glitter! If you want a more toned down glitter nail design opt for semi-clear, semi-glitter nail design. For a bolder effect chose contrasting colors. And finally, for the most dramatic results glitterize your nails from the first finger to the last. Choose your favorite color (not trying to influence your decision but royal blue, turquoise and millennial pink look insanely gorgeous in glitter version) and get glitter mani. This nail design is pretty simple. Try it at home if you don’t want to pay for a pro mani.
For extra glam mix glitter, rhinestones and other decorative elements for nails into one nail design. These over-the-top nail designs are only for the ones who don’t mind to have all the attention on their nails.
Take a look at these pretty glitter nail designs and pin the ones you want to copy.
Nothing looks more glamorous than a glitter makeup look. Even designers are affected by the glitter obsession. We had a chance to see many dazzling pieces on the runway shows lately. Some brands took the glitter obsession on another level. Too Faced and GlamGlow recently announced that they are working on glitter masks. So, the beauty world is going crazy over glitter.
There is something special about the glitter. These tiny sparkly particles can change your entire makeup look. The most common way to use glitter in makeup is on your eyes, but glitter looks mesmerizing on the lips as well. As you probably guess, wearing glitter on your lips is not the most comfortable thing in the world, but is worth trying. In case your makeup game isn’t strong a glitter lip will do the job. Precise glitter makeup looks are a bit hard to create if you aren’t good in doing your makeup. If you can’t get over the mess that the loose glitter creates opt for pressed glitter. This glitter comes in eyeshadow pans and you don’t need glitter clue to keep it in place.
The dramatic glitter makeup looks are perfect for glamorous occasions such as prom, parties, weddings and so on. You can also flaunt a glamorous makeup look that includes glitter during the holiday season. The options to spice up your makeup look with glitter are endless. You could create a cut crease makeup look or highlight the inner corners of your eyes with glitter. Applying glitter all over your eyelids is another option. If you want to elevate your look in just seconds, apply glitter only on your lower lash line.
Feast your eyes on the most dramatic glitter makeup looks and get ready to be the most glamorous person at your next big event.
Glitter is going to become a part of your everyday life soon. Forget the times when glitter was used only for Halloween and festivals. The 90s’ trends that had a huge comeback this year brought back the glitter in our makeup routine. There is nothing weird in using glitter to get a glamorous look for a night out. But apparently, you’ll be able to nurture your skin with glitter soon. Two major brands Too faced and GlamGlow took the glitter obsession on a higher level.
Too Faced’s co-founder Jerrod Blandino teased his followers with a video of a glitter face mask. In the video, you can see a woman applying the glorious mixture all over her face. At the end, she peels off the wondrous mask with ease and no residue whatsoever. The glitter face mask will be Too Faced’s first skincare product. With no doubt, the cruelty-free brand will enter the world of skincare with style.
Too Faced is not the only brand that wants to add glitter to your skin care routine. Just 24 hours after Too Faced’s glitter mask teaser, the Instagram-famous brand GlamGlow announced the launch of the Glittermask. The Glittermask is expected to arrive during the holidays. GlamGlow’s Glittermask will offer a peel-off firming treatment with its star-shaped iridescent glitter. The glitter is mixed with the charcoal-colored base. According to GlamGlow, the glitter face mask won’t cause messy situations. Every glitter addict knows the clean-up struggle after using glitter, but this face mask performs with no leave behind. The Glittermask reminds of the brand’s Gravitymud metallic silver peel-off mask. The mask became an internet obsession when it first launched because of its vibrant metallic finish. The new Glittermask might be Gravitymud’s glittery twin. As you can see the Glittermask is very Instagrammable and ready to take over your Instagram feed.
There are no official release dates for the glitter face masks yet. Glamglow’s Glittermask is expected to launch first, sometime during the holiday season. The brand confirmed that the Glittermask will be available at Sephora. Too Faced didn’t reveal any information about the launch date. Although there aren’t specific dates for you to mark your calendar, we are sure that you won’t miss their launch. The beauty influencers will probably receive the products before the official launching and you’ll see these glamorous masks all over your Instagram feed.

You’re going to absolutely fall in love with glitter hair! You’ll have to prepare to have a mess on your hands (and probably the floor) after applying the glitter, but the outcome will be totally worth it, especially if you know just how to mix colors! The holidays are a time when sparkle is everything, from your clothes to your makeup, and this glitter hair trend is just one more thing to add sparkle to ” with truly magical results.
Earlier this week, Nikki Lee of the Nine Zero One Salon created a demo presentation for Beauty Coach TV, where she showed viewers how to create a beautiful glitter hair fishtail braid; according to Refinery29, this is how the stunning hair trend picked up the tempo so rapidly in the last week. That being said, this is one hairstyle that has been picking up momentum for quite some time; it has accumulated quite a substantial presence on Instagram.
The world-famous Daniel Moon, colorist at the Ramirez Tran Salon, can take credit for a great innovation for this trend ” Major Moonshine Glitter Gel. It’s a product specially designed for easy glitter hair looks; if you try to use your everyday glitter, it’s pretty likely that you’ll end up a hot mess!
Hair glitter is a trend that you don’t want to miss out on this winter season, so here is a list of 25 striking glitter hairstyles that are sure to liven your spirits and get you excited for any type of party, including the holiday season!
1. Fishtail Braid Glitter Hair
This is a truly magical use of hair glitter, thanks to the stunning contrast between the dark brown hair and the rainbow of gorgeous glitter colors. Everyone loves a fishtail braid, and it’s a stunning look behind a beautiful holiday party dress, so why not amp up the fun with glitter? It’ll add a great surprise from the back, and is a great twist on a classic hairstyle.
2. Side Cornrow Glitter Hair
Nina Dobrev is shown here absolutely rocking her glitter hair look. Tight side braids such as these are super-hot right now; they’re super edgy and rocker-chic, and adding in silver hair glitter to the tops of the braids is the epitome of trendsetting. It’s not overpowering in color or quantity, so it’s just an overall cool hairstyle that adds some great shimmer and shine to your look.
3. High Bun Glitter Hair
This hairstyle is super sweet with the hair glitter; the bronze glitter flecks blend just enough with brunette hair, so the shimmer is stunning without adding in bold colors. The bun is just a smart hairstyle all around, since it’s easy to wear for any occasion, and it makes for an interesting glitter hair look since the glitter is only added to the base of the head, not the locks themselves. It’ll help keep things from getting too messy as well!
4. Slicked Back Glitter Hair
This is an interesting glitter hairstyle, because slicked back with this amount of glitter, the hair looks wet. More specifically, it almost looks like shampoo still in her hair, given the lighting and photo! Regardless, the effect is almost otherworldly, and it really is a lovely holiday hairstyle with an unspoken elegance to it that will be striking anywhere. The rest of the hair being an understated style makes the glitter really pop.
5. Essential Braid Glitter Hair
You can’t go wrong with a basic braid, especially when it has a healthy dose of shining pink glitter on top! The shine tapers off as the hair goes into the braid, so you don’t have to worry about tucking in the strands or painting over it to achieve this bold glitter hair look. It’s a fun side to your standard braid, making it perfect for an everyday look; you don’t always need a special occasion to doll up your hair!
6. Lightly Sparkled French Braid Glitter Hair
This is a subtler use of the glitter hair trend, made by simply painting a small amount the sparkles on each strand of the dual French braids. In an easygoing silver, the glitter here just highlights the beautiful styling of the hair while also tying in well to the wearer’s makeup and overall style. This goes to show how hair glitter can boost everything about yourself, especially if you show restraint (which isn’t easy, given how fun glitter has always been to play with!).
7. Dual Braid Mermaid Glitter Hair
Mermaid hair is another hot trend right now, so it’s really exciting to see it merged with glitter hair! You get the lovely color variation of mermaid hair (especially since the locks are tied up in double braids, separating colors) as well as the pop of surprise from the glitter on top. Here, the model is sporting bright pink glitter hair above her blue- and purple-based mermaid hair, so the shock factor is especially prevalent.
8. Top Knot French Braid Glitter Hair
Gold glitter hair is jaw-droppingly stunning. Wavy boho locks are pulled to the side in a loose braid, while more hair is piled on top in a top knot ” the gold glitter is spread from the braid (of mixed blonde and black hair) and extends up to the black root area; the shimmering glitter looks equally as beautiful on the blonde as it does the brunette side, so even if you don’t try to pull of this exact glitter hairstyle, you can know that gold glitter hair is a magnificent option!
9. Sparkly Purple Glitter Roots
This glitter hairstyle idea is out of this world. It’s cosmically drawing, between the purple hair color and the sparkly purple roots; so much so that it seems more like the natural hair colors of an otherworldly being than a simple dye and glitter job! Using the glitter on your roots only makes for an interesting illusion in any shade, by both drawing attention to the unexpected area and giving the rest of your hair an interesting new color perspective.
10. Candy Pink Glitter Hair
This adorable glitter hairstyle is totally girly and cute. It’s something you’d expect to find on a Barbie doll sitting in her box at the store. It brings that idea to life, starting with bubblegum pink hair, and adding silver sparkles on top of that to make for an even girlier look. This is the kind of style you’d expect from someone who knows she’s ‚Äö√†√∂¬¨‚à´ber feminine in her aesthetic but decides to embrace it and run with it full-force!
11. Dual Bun Pastel Glitter Roots
Each half of this beautiful glitter hairstyle is a pastel hue ” one is a lovely mint blue-green and the other is a sweet purple. Two-knot buns characterize the top, and the center is made special with large blue sequins lining the part and its black roots.
Depending on what you wear this with or what makeup you choose to wear, this is a glitter hairstyle that could go edgy or feminine, so you can mix it with your personal style, or switch up the colors for further personalization.
12. Valentine’s Day Glitter Hair
This isn’t just some last-minute trend and meant only for the holiday season, but also for Valentine’s Day. Pink hair with star particles and touch of glitter is a great yet rather common glitter hairstyle in this list. It makes for an interesting contrast of textures and sizes, so you can wear a super simple and sweet outfit while still sporting pink and stars to celebrate the holiday.
13. Brilliant Pink Glitter Hair
The pink hair glitter here is totally enamoring. Seeing it gleam against the rays of the sun shows just how stunning glitter hair can be. This is an especially good glitter for blonde or light colored hair, since the bright contrast is the striking element here.
Even though the color is super bright and vibrant, this is actually one of the subtler glitter hairstyles ” the hairstyle itself is basic and let down, so all you’re doing is following a standard beauty routine and adding in sparkles!
14. Silver Star Glitter Hair
You’ll be the star of the evening if you try out a glitter hair look like this. Silver hair can be super elegant (as shown here), and this hairstyle itself is trendy and cute, with two top knot buns on either side of the center part. The roots here are lined with silver hair glitter and stars, adding more texture and interest to the hairstyle without adding in shocking colors. Matching the glitter to your hair color can be a really smart choice, since it will amplify your look without being too in-your-face.
15. Gold Foil Glitter Hair
You don’t need to mess around with messy glitter to have a beautiful glitter hair look. This is the perfect example, with gold foil flakes sitting to one side of an elegant, side-swept hairstyle. Hair foiling goes hand in hand with glitter hair; both add texture and beautiful color to your hair and reflect wonderfully against the sun. In this case, the large flakes are the perfect choice because they don’t interfere too much with the classically stunning hairstyle, yet still add in the glitter hair trend as well.
16. Bright Blue Stars & Glitter Roots
This glitter hairstyle goes all the way from the front to the back, lining the center part. By pulling the hair up and out of the way in two side buns, the part and roots are left wide open, making for the perfect opportunity to pave the pathway with glitter.
With blonde hair, blue glitter is especially striking, since it’s such a stark contrast of color ” that being said, it would be lovely with darker hair colors as well! Adding in the stars is a great final touch with the glitter, because you can add even more color and fun shapes on top of the glitter hair.
17. Double Bun Pink Glitter Hair
Pastel pink is always a winning color choice for winter, since the color bounces off so beautifully from the snow. Using that color for your hair is growing in popularity, and we love how it pairs so nicely with the glitter hair trend! Pink hair and pink glitter might sound like overkill, but this picture proves otherwise. The two side buns are super cute, so it really matches the ‚Äö√†√∂¬¨‚à´ber cute color and glitter combo.
18. Unicorn & Glitter Hair Updo
The beautifully colored unicorn hair in this picture is already stunning and bright, making it a great playground to try out glitter hair. By using a substantial amount of deep purple glitter to line the hair roots between the two high buns, you’re able to have a lot of fun by “over-glittering’ (if that’s really such a thing!) your hair and essentially swapping out your hair color entirely for glitter. The result is sparkling beauty without a shocking color, in a way that goes well with unicorn hair and with a deep enough color to not overpower.
19. Tucked French Braid, Shimmering Glitter Hair
This breathtaking glitter hairstyle is absolutely perfect for winter. The shade of blue-grey for the hair is perfectly matched with a silver glitter, and it almost gives an illusion of snow in the hair in and of itself. The tucked French braid is always a lovely style any time of year (particularly in winter, in my opinion!), especially with an unusual hair color like this blue. We always love seeing these kinds of unusual yet not shocking hair colors styled in classic ways, especially when they bring in modern trends, like this hair glitter!
20. Unicorn Mohawk Rainbow Glitter Hair
With this glitter hair trend, you either need to go all out or be super subtle in order to be successful ” this is the perfect example of going all out! The flame-blue hair is already a statement of its own, so one might expect adding more color or texture would be overkill, but it really isn’t.
Styled as an updo and with a rainbow and size assortment of glitter lining the side, there’s something just so innovative and fun about this hairstyle that is intoxicating. You might try out a similar style with your own hair color, and see the results shine!
21. Chunky Blue Glitter Roots
Large glitter specks add so much fun and extra color to the glitter hair trend. With standard glitter, you can’t really appreciate the full extent of color like you can with larger squares like in this look.
The blues used tie in beautifully with the double mermaid hair buns and black roots, making the complete look cute and youthful. It’s fun to see the vibrant blue glitter flakes paired with the pastel hair colors, because it makes you appreciate the richness of the hair color in a new way.
22. Purple and Silver Glitter Hair
Plum purple hair is one of the more sophisticated unnatural hair colors you could go with ” adding in glitter brings out the playfulness that comes with having a color like that. In this case, larger glitter in silver and purple was used in the center between two high buns with braids, keeping the sparkles encased. It’s a simple yet gleaming use of hair glitter, and thanks to the larger size of the glitter flakes, you get the additional boost from the color as well!
23. Gold-Lined Glitter Hair
Using glitter to line your hair is another beautiful, albeit less common option for the glitter hair trend. In this case, the overall style is classic and sophisticated, with slicked back bangs, and using a lustrous gold glitter to line the front area adds a beautiful highlight.
It adds color to the section, and it’s not too messy of a process compared with other styling options, thanks to the containment. A glitter hairstyle like this is the perfect way to spice up your favorite classic hairstyles and bring a lot of intrigue to your everyday look!
24. Pink and Icy Blue Glitter Hair
With pink hair, the go-to glitter choice would be something easy like pink or silver to complement the bright color. In this case, though, the icy blue used at the center part’s roots is a striking contrast to the pink hair. The colors naturally go well together (they’re classic girl and boy baby colors, after all!) in a non-complementary way, so even though you have the stark contrast, the color combo doesn’t seem so farfetched.
Each color works off of the other ” the pink hair makes the blue glitter appear brighter and more lustrous, while the glitter works to make the pink brighter and cuter! It’s a total win-win.
25. Pink-Lined Glitter Hair
Here’s another option if you’re looking to use glitter as a hair liner. It’s clear from the black hair with green highlights that the overall style is edgy, and the luminous pink glitter works against that, making for an interesting clash of styles.
It’s an easy glitter hair option, since it’s not as precise as others, and it shows how striking bright pink can be, even as it’s paired with a lime green as it is here. Again, the pink is working to make the green more jarring, and vice versa!

You can find them in stores and online at jimmychoo.com.
7. Beyond Glitter
For this holiday season, Kate Spade overwhelmed us with trendy shoes aplenty, among which those dipped in glitter and rose gold tones surely are the most appealing ones. This pair of glitter shoes is covered in dark glitter accents and features faux-fur pom-poms and a bow, which makes them beyond perfect especially if you are going for a revisited Roaring Twenties look. They are available at Shopbop.com!
8. Slipping Into Glitter
Aside from stilettos and rose gold shoes, this winter’s must-have shoe style is also the slip-on, especially if that’s Gucci-inspired. This pair of Maureen flats in glittery leather is the perfect combination for those who love both glitter and slip-ons, and will moreover automatically put any of your outfits in an all-year-round holiday mode! Find them at ModaOperandi.com.
9. Call It Party
“Call it Spring’ is a relatively new label that has been creating a bit of a buzz lately, thanks to its glamorously cozy items that more and more fashionistas are longing for. For the holiday season, the label offers glittery stilettos that are just top-notch and part-approved, and that you can easily find on ASOS.com (which means they will likely be discounted during Black Friday, too!).
10. Glitter Shoes and the City
If there’s one thing that recalls Sex & the City more than Jimmy Choo’s creations, that’s, of course, Sarah Jessica Parker’s outfits. If you still binge-watch the notorious TV-series trying to analyze the actress’s outfits, you may now actually dress like her with this pair of SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker Austen glitter Mary Jane pumps, available for purchase on Bloomingdales.com.
11. When Luxe Meets Glitter Shoes
Glitter, pearls and high fashion structured heels are now available all at once thanks to this pair of Nicholas Kirkwood 105mm ‘Maeva’ pearl pumps, made in Italy of silver-toned leather and with a curved heel refined by a delicate pearl detailing. Farfetch.com retails this pair of glitter shoes and hopefully will feature appealing Black Friday deals as well!
