I don’t remember the last time I was drawn to a makeup that didn’t have a shimmer to it. So it’s only fitting that my 2nd Sparkle Week post is about shimmery makeup. Whether it’s eyes, cheekbones or lips, the shinier, the better 🙂 So here are my top shimmer picks, courtesy of Sephora.

Bare Minerals eye shadow


Bare Minerals palettes are amazing. I can personally vouch for the quality of this product. If you’re unsure how to utilize the 4 colors of the palette, here are my pointers: The light color on the top left should be applied on the lid and on the brow bone. Next, use the bottom left color in your crease. Next, use the top right color all over the lid. And finally, use the bottom right as the eyeliner. Be sure to have a great blending brush to make sure the colors are all blended!

Bobbi Brown eye shadow

Bobbi Brown shimmer wash eye shadow. Another favorite of mine! Not only do these shadows last forever but they go on so smooth and are great for layering colors! Favorite!

Bobbi Brown shimmer brick. If you take anything away from this post, this should be it. It’s fabulous on cheekbones, chin, nose, chest, shoulders, etc. Put it everywhere. [okay, maybe not everywhere] I’ve also been known to use the individual color strips as eye shadow! Buy it. It’ll change your life.
