All That Shimmers…

Embrace the catwalk trends and be bold with the glitter this party season – we love a bit in our wardrobes, why not on the visage..?

Article by Lauren Naylor

Glitter for party season is the most talked about thing in beauty right now – and I would know, I’ve written about it countless times! Festive tunes are blasting out department stores, Christmas lights are well and truly up and resplendent and Santas’ grottos up and down the country are ready for their little visitors. Oh and not to mention, I’ve watched a Christmas Carol once already.

I digress, where were we? Oh yes… Glitter.

Add a touch of sparkle to your Christmas party by jumping onto the catwalk-led beauty bandwagon.

We don’t think twice about introducing glitter into our wardrobes, so why are we so timid when it comes to our visage? We spied sparkle at the Autumn/Winter 17 shows such as Blumarine, who took a subtle take on a ‘modern Barbie’ with clear glossy eyes laced with gold glitter particles, for just a hint of shimmer. Whereas, like me, if you’re not one for subtlety, embrace full-on glittery pouts a la Ashley Isham, and be sure to pile on highlighter with both looks to give a super and otherworldly glow.

Quite a few years ago I fell in love with Chanel’s take on glitter – an utterly ostentatious eyebrow piled high with sequins and concealed entirely with shimmer. Which leads us to this year’s take on glitter eyebrows. Paris fashion week came to a complete standstill as at L’Oréal’s Le Defile show models sported brilliant (in both senses) glitter brows. From Paris to London, this glitzy upgrade on a bold brow is just in time for party season.

Want to indulge in the twinkly tinsel trend? Suman Brows London Salon is based in Hari’s, 233 Kings Road, Chelsea, and has garnered a selection of some of the best brows in the business from beautiful faces such as Emilia Fox, Suki Waterhouse and Poppy Delevigne. Among her very famous services, such as microblading and her signature ‘bespoke brow and tint’, Suman has decided to add a touch of sparkle to the schedule. This Winter, get hot-footing down the Kings Road to enjoy a bespoke thread and tint with a side of shimmer.
