The Shimmer Story

The art of makeup has been known to do wonders lending an instant touch of glamour to even the plain Jane look. Trends in fashion and make up application have novel ideas to offer with every season that passes. Some styles remain evergreen and others share their two minutes of fame before disappearing into the blues.

The concept of shimmer and bling has been quite a recent phenomenon and has become immensely popular with all those who love to go an extra mile with their persona and sport a touch of glam. Shimmer not just graces the antique work outfits or sassy little party dresses but has managed to reach up our sleeves, neck and shoulders to add a bling effect to regular make up. Fashion experts claim that the if applied appropriately, one can also flaunt a little shimmer during day and not restrict its usage to an evening occasion.

Are you keen to embrace the shimmer look, go ahead and apply a liberal dose of your shine with the help of the following ideas

• First and foremost, make your pick right. Do not get confused between shimmer and frost, the former is lightweight and looks refreshing whereas the latter one has a caked up appearance, so choose carefully.
• Choosing the appropriate brush to apply is a must. Unless blended well, it can look ugly, so ensure you pick a nice fluffy brush, and mix it well so that the glitter particles do not outdo the makeup.
• When applying shimmer, remember that you want to look like a diva and not a buffoon at the circus, so apply it judiciously. If using it for your cheeks and forehead, use it sparingly. One can also enhance the eye makeup with shimmer along with a touch up on the chin.
• Before applying shimmer to eyes, try and cover them up with a powder shadow to the inner corners and top it with a sleek line of shimmer, this will prevent smudging. However strictly avoid using shimmer at all places together.
• With revealing outfits, you can make most of shimmer by using it around your shoulders, back and a little bit on the cleavage. The trick however is to apply it in a subtle manner and yet look like a bling goddess

Whichever age group you belong to, add a touch of shimmer to your make up in smart ways and get ready to make heads turn as you walk.
