How to Wear Glittered Shadow

This spring, eyes are sparkling -- that is, with glitter. Glitter and lustre, sparkle and shine are all the rage this season. Maybe it's due in part to Lady Gaga rocking shiny pink eyelids at the Superbowl, or maybe it's the bright, light tones of spring -- either way, I'm here to tell you that yes, you can wear glittered eyes, and yes, you can wear them during the day, too.

Introducing a fairly new product from pur minerals called Eye Polish. Eye Polish is a one-step, Base + Top Coat eye colour that's super easy to wear and apply.

It comes in a little pot, with a mesh opening and a silicone applicator and is available in 6 different tones from soft champagnes to deeper chocolate colours. To apply, you dip the tip of the applicator onto the polish and smear onto your eyelid. The product goes on creamy, yet soft, and dries very, very quickly. It's quite silky in texture and not heavy one bit.

Choose to wear it on its own, or combine with a powder shadow. What surprised me most is that the product didn't crease in my eyelid. So, while it goes on like a cream, it dries like a soft shadow.

For a perfect day look with a bit of glam, I stuck to earth tones with a soft brown liner and light mascara. A light dusting of blush and a soft lip colour and I was ready for the day.

To amp up the sparkle, pat additional polish gently on TOP of your shadow and add a darker shade in your crease.

For a full evening look, I'd add a thin black liner on top and even a bold lip.

Pur Minerals Eye Polish is available at Shoppers Drug Mart and various department stores and retails for $26 CAN.
