Brighten Up Your Face
Little girls aren't the only ones who like a little sparkle. Seems that many mamas are attracted to pretty, glimmery tints that give a magical sheen to their complexion, much like fairy dust. When I received new GLIMMERsheers from Beauty Addicts, I felt like a little girl playing dress-up - not because these aren't serious cosmetics, but because they seemed like so much fun! Plus, each one is packaged in Beauty Addicts' signature packaging - a pink organza bag adorned with crystals and a tassle - a little reminder that this is a gift to yourself (or to someone you love).
Made up of two complementary shades designed to make your face more luminous, GLIMMERsheers ($30 each) come in four lovely shades, with each having a complementary pale and clear luminizer. I applied the glimmer on my eyes, in the inner corners, to give a brightening effect. It created a soft, subtle luster and a pretty sheen. The sheer hue goes on clear to hydrate and enhance skin. I used a gentle touch of this on my cheeks, over a cream blush, and it created a soft radiant glow.
GLIMMERsheers are the perfect little trick this time of year. With spring on the horizon, most of our complexions are still looking quite wintry. A little luster will get rid of the winter blahs and leave your skin looking dew-kissed and radiant, ready for Easter, Passover and spring festivities.
