Go on and get hooked on glitter. “There are so many colors and it’s perfect for embellishing eyeliner or color shadow in a subtle way. You can even use it to you create bold shapes or club kid lips,” says Goodwin, who suggests trying Lemonhead Space Paste.

We’ve said it before and we will say it again: Lip gloss is back and it’s poppin’. “Holographic lip gloss looks cool and understated when worn alone with just defined brows, mascara, and softly sculpted cheeks,” explains Goodwin. Dab a bit of product on your eyelids and cheekbones for additional dimension.
