1. Shimmer

    This holiday season you’ll want to shimmer and glimmer like the precious delight you are.

    To gild your eyes with a golden shimmer, try the Eye Colour Sampler from Laura Mercier. It’s full of lovely and sparkly shadows for any occasion. This kit will make your eyes soft or intensely smoky. The colours will work for anyone, so it is a fabulous gift too. It’s $48. www.lauramercier.com
    Laura Mercier Eye Shadow SamplerIf you want sparkle but have spent all your gold on others, Flirt! Fowerific Limited Edition Eye Shadow Palette is a fabulous little palette at Kohl’s for less than $15. It will give you the sexy gilded look you want this season with three burnished metallics and one smoky shade. It is a great stocking stuffer too. We love this value for money line and need it to come to Canada. Until then, pick it up on cross-border shopping trips. This one is a keeper.
    For a subtle glow, you can try a couple of pretty Katy Perry’s favourites: Cover Girl’s Queen Collection Hot Toffee (single) and MAC Honey Lust!MAC eye shadow in Honey Lust. Both are well-priced, Cover Girl single shadows are about $3 and MAC eye shadows are about $18.
    Cover Girl Hot ToffeeFor fabulous long lashes try Covergirl Lashblast. Since using Latisse, I love the original yellow tube Lashblast Length. It coats my new long lashes with no flaking. But if you want length and instant volume, try Lashblast Fusion. Or, for evening, pump it up with Lashblast Luxe for all the oomph and a hint of glimmer, too. I wear this mascara to work out, and it stays put. We were talking about it after class. A young woman who also wears make-up that stay put throughout the thigh-busting hour workout wears it too.
