Literally shine bright like a diamond in one of the most popular and glitzy makeup looks. This is an easy to achieve, instant glam updo for the festival. There are available gemstone sets which will stick on as easy as one two three.

Metallic Eyes


Go full on metallic and let the sun rays reflect on your skin, giving you a perfect glow, highlighting all the areas of your eyes, nose bridge and cheek bones. “Metallic” offers such a wide range, choose a colour which best match your skin tone. To achieve the look presented above, we recommend picking up the Lime Crime Hi-Lite Highlighter Palette – Angels and using “Celestial” to fill your lids. Add more holographic dimension with Barry M Cosmetics Holographic Eye Topper in Blue/Green.

Highlight your cheeks with the beautifully glittered Lime Crime Diamond Dew Highlighter in Aurora finish off this icy queen look with a good layer of Lime Crime Metallic Velvetines Lipstick in Happi and Lime Crime Diamond Crushers Lip Topper in Choke.

Go full-on harajuku and put the rainbow on your face. This is the one time you can go crazy with pigments and colours on your face without being too overboard.

Or connect your cheekbones with the diego dalla palma Frangipane Cheeks Powder Blush – 333 11g to achieve a fully flushed look. Add in some freckles for the maximum kawaii effect.


Go bold by picking the color of the day and have your makeup done in only one shade.


In relation of the color of the year, my pick will be a strong orange look. Apply Illamasqua Powder Eye Shadow in Vulgar to your lids and the Lime Crime Plushies Lipstick in Orange Juice to your lips.

If you don’t want to go to crazy on your glitter, choose glitter bits which come in holographic shades to give variety to the glitter color on your cheeks.

If not, sparingly paste bigger glitter bits to put focus on your cheeks but not overpower the attention, like what instagrammer @manyluv_m has shown.

Strobed Sculpture

Capture the sun on your face in all the right ways. Keep the look simple but work on highlighting in all the right areas.

Sculpture your face to a golden glow with Sleek MakeUP Highlighting Elixir in Poppin’ Bottles or the HD Brows Glow Stick – Rose Gold combined with the 3INA The Face Palette Multicolored. The Laura Geller Hi-Def Glow Illuminator Duo – Heart of Gold in beautiful shades of shimmer and sparkle in different tones of gold will give off a multidimensional glow. The brand recommends to sweep the Shimmer shade onto the high points of the face and follow with the Sparkle shade.
