As if by magic, with more velocity than ever before, glitter
seems to be taking over the faces, heads and bodies of the world. Everywhere I
turn, there are more sparkles, more shimmering glimmer. The result overall is a
more magical world in my opinion.

It is my sincerest hope that this beauty
trend lives on through 2014, and so I’ve mastered a way to make my face even
more magical.

The holiday season, sadly, is over, but that doesn’t mean it
isn’t still glitter’s time to shine. I might have packed away my collection of
itchy glitter sweaters, snow globes, and sparkly ice cream ornaments, but that
doesn’t mean I have to suffer through the rest of the year without sparkles
stuck all over my body. Hair,
face, nails,
toenails; no skin will be left behind.

So far on xoVain we’ve gone over glitter
glitter lips,
and more. That just about covers it, right? Wrong! We forgot eyebrows, guys!

I couldn't decide how I wanted to implement my glitter brow
look. Should I glue blocks of glitter fabric or paper onto my face a la Chanel
F/W 2012
That didn't seem like the most wearable or comfortable option, though I may
still try it In the future because jewel-encrusted eyebrows are obviously
something I enjoy.

With a bit of experimentation and some trusty products, I came
up with two versions of a glitter brow to try. The results are wearable, easy-to-execute looks. Just please don't get glitter in your eye. Please.

Version 1

Using my very favourite Heavy Metal Glitter liquid liner by
Urban Decay in Midnight Cowboy, I gave my eyebrows a nice subtle
golden sparkle.

Simply take the little liquid liner brush and apply the
sparkles to your brows until satisfied. This route is super-easy and the result
is, like, ugh, so pretty.

Version 2

For a more dramatic look, I turned to my Sephora Glittering Eye
Duo in Iridescent.

I thoroughly coated my brows with the provided
sticky primer, making sure to brush some in against the hairs to make the
foundation nice and solid. Then I coated the same brush with the attached
glitter and stuck it all over my brows.

Hypothetically something similar could be done with a glue
stick and carefully placed dollar-store glitter if you wanted to get all fancy budget craft project
on your face.

Let me know (and show me) if you try this!
