MOLL’S BEAUTY BAG: Bring Some Shine to 2015

LOVE THIS! Glitter Bag for the New Year!

LOVE IT NOW BECAUSE: All that glitters makes us feel more golden.

Every girl loves diamonds. It’s true. Pair a diamond glow with a beautiful eye and I predict romance is right around the corner. To keep makeup stunning while sparkling , press a little Makeup Forever Diamond Powder in Champagne ($25) all over the lower lid. Apply 2 coats of black mascara and a red lip, and you’ll be the diamond’s best friend.

What makes you blush? One of my favorite ways to add some sparkle without swimming in it is a shimmery blush. And which one could be more fitting for the romance that New Year’s brings than NYX Cosmetics Baked Blush in Foreplay ($7)? This illuminating pink blush with gold shimmer catches the light in all the right ways.

Just call you “Sparkle Smooch”.  For a sparkling lip that doesn’t look the least bit costumey, dial it up with Dazzleglass by MAC Cosmetics ($20). Right now, I’m particularly swooning over the Date Night shade – a sheer, dusty rosy plum with crystalline opalescence.

Make that skin sparkle. But do so subtly. Jimmy Choo Shimmering Body Cream ($80) leaves you with supple, shimmering skin, all while imparting the softest seductive scent. Don’t forget to concentrate it on the areas that won’t be covered– namely, the arms and décolettage.

Moll’s Bag of Tricks: If you’re anything like me, and want to add some sparkle while still maintaining a certain level of sophistication, think simplicity. Choose one feature you’d like to see sparkle and stick with that. Whether it be lips, lashes, eyes, cheeks or nails, let that one feature subtly light up any room.
