Trend Alert: Shimmer, Sparkle, and Shine!

Trend Alert

Sparkly eye shadow is as essential to holiday beauty as red and green are to the season as a whole. We expect to see it each year. That said, this year’s silvers, golds, and other shimmers are more metallic than ever, fully embracing the holidays’ unofficial mantra of “bigger, brighter, and bolder.” One of my favorite chrome shadows so far is Keri Russell’s silver Chantecaille. With makeup so lustrous, it would be easy to look like you got doused in tinsel, but she’s got just the right amount of shine. To try the trend for yourself, check out some of the best formulas and colors below…
