Beauty experts, Elyse Reneau and Kim Chi, shares insights on incorporating glitter into makeup routine

With the holiday season in full swing, it’s the perfect time to embrace the festive spirit not only through outfits but also with glamorous makeup.

Two beauty experts, Elyse Reneau and Kim Chi, along with skincare guru Emma Lewisham, share their insights on incorporating glitter into your makeup routine for a dazzling and flawless look.

Elyse Reneau’s Glitter Eye Makeup Tips:

Elyse Reneau, Executive Director of Global Beauty for Too Faced Cosmetics, offers valuable advice on achieving the perfect glitter eye makeup.

To prevent a glittery mess, Elyse recommends starting with the eyes, emphasizing that cleaning up glitter fallout is easier on bare skin than on a fully made-up face.

She underscores the importance of using a primer like Too Faced Cosmetics’ Shadow Insurance to provide a base for the glitter.

Elyse advocates applying glitter with fingers, not a brush, by pressing it into the lids for optimal results.

Kim Chi chimes in, cautioning about the potential harm loose glitter can cause to the eyes and suggesting the use of less complex products like liquid eyeshadow.

Kim Chi’s Makeup Magic:

Kim Chi, CEO of KimChi Chic Beauty and a Rupaul’s Drag Race star, shares her expertise on where to strategically apply glitter for a stunning effect.

For those who fear the glitter fallout, Kim recommends adding sparkle to the lips using lip gloss for a look that stays put.

She introduces “Pot de Creme,” a metallic liquid eyeshadow from her own beauty line, perfect for achieving a shimmery look without worrying about fallout or smudging.

Glowing from Head to Toe:

Both experts agree that there are no rules when it comes to glitter.

Elyse encourages experimenting with glitter on the cheeks, suggesting a festive sparkle for the holiday season.

For a more subtle glow, she recommends highlighters or blush with shimmer, such as the Moon Crush Highlighter by Too Faced Cosmetics.

Kim Chi extends the glitter party to the entire body, recommending body makeup for a supermodel glow on legs, arms, and chest.

She shares a drag insider tip for removing loose glitter – a piece of duct tape lightly pressed over glitter to lift it off without harming the skin.

Emma Lewisham’s Makeup Removal Wisdom:

Emma Lewisham, founder of the luxury natural skincare brand Emma Lewisham, shares her three-step approach to proper makeup removal.

She stresses the importance of double cleansing to ensure the thorough removal of makeup before bedtime.

The first cleanse eliminates makeup and impurities, while the second cleanse deeply conditions and hydrates the skin.

Emma recommends eye creams for the fragile eye area, especially after holiday parties involving frequent makeup application and removal.

To complete the evening routine, she suggests applying a night cream and oil, opting for natural oils with ultra-firming properties and nutrient-rich formulas.

As glitter takes center stage in holiday makeup, these expert tips offer a comprehensive guide to achieving a radiant and festive look.

Whether it’s dazzling eyes, shimmering lips, or an all-over glow, these professionals provide valuable insights to ensure you shine bright this holiday season.
