Great tips - LOVE glittery eyes for the holidays!! Some of my favorite products this season are the Milani Baked Blush in Red Vino and Mattify Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Fields of Gold and Woodland Fairy. My skin is crazy oily, so I can’t use much shimmer on my face itself, but by using sparkly blush and eye makeup instantly gives brightness to my complexion!
